Wedding Evening Guest Dresses

We have quite a few evening “dos” coming up in the coming months and having lost three stone, I have rediscovered my passion for fashion. 

I have to admit that despite feeling good, I still am sticking to darker colours as I still have a stone to lose. I prefer a darker outfit that can be jazzed up with bright accessories as it is more versatile and can be worn all year round; I’m oh so thrifty!

I’ve chosen a few dresses that currently on my lust list:

Clockwise from top right:

AX Paris bodycon £40, Little Mistress fitted navy dress £69, Oasis blue tea dress  £45, Chi Chi London navy scallop dress £79.99, Coast ‘Katey’ shoulder dress £159.

I absolutely love the colour of the blue Oasis dress along with the kooky retro looking lace sleeves. I think I would probably want to lose a little more before I’d be completely confident in the AX Paris dress as it is incredibly fitted, but it’s good to have goals yes??  Similarly with the Little Mistress dress but I adore the neckline on this one and the subtle detail on the front. My two favourites are definitely the Coast and Chi Chi London. The Coast dress is pure elegance and I know that they as a brand are fantastic quality despite the slightly higher price tag. The scallop detail on the Chi Chi London dress lures me in as it is SO pretty and the cut looks very flattering, it’s so feminine and classic. 

I absolutely love that I’m excited about clothes again – although I’m not sure how kind it is on the bank balance!!

Which one is your favourite?

    I love the Coast one! Well done on losing three stone, that’s amazing! I think you should go for the one you love and flaunt that new figure! 🙂 You’re probably still thinking in your head that you’re bigger than you actually are, don’t you think? xx

    I have been feeling the same recently about clothes having also lost some weight. I agree that the navy dress looks like a flattering cut and I would totally wear that. Beautiful!

    I’ve actually never been to a wedding so I would have absolutely no idea what to wear x

    Well done on your weight loss and what a gorgeous selection of dresses. I would have so much trouble choosing but I *think* I’d go for the Coast dress if my budget could stretch to it.

    I love Chi dresses so much- only place that does like a full skirt dress which is fab!
