Title: Wedding is in 5 or 6 weeks
Post by: bytey on Tue 23 September, 2008 - 07:45 pm
Help me find a dress to wear to sisters wedding!

I like vintage 50's or 60's dresses but am open to anything.

I really wanna wear the below shoes though so maybe a dress that goes with them would be good. Although I will wear other shoes if I have to.

Dress needs to be able to have a jacket or cardi to match coz it will still be fairly cool.

Thanks in advance. Might chuck some chocky fishies out to any helpers.

What about something like this - you just need to team it with say a black skirt.  The top is the wow factor.

Thinking about this dress with the shoes above.

I was gonna wear a bright dress with blackshoes and cardi, but perhaps this with a bright coloured cardi??? Any colour ideaS?

I have asked a question about whether it willfitme or be easy to make alterations coz the measurements are a bit big but I reallylikethe dress. Though will get my sister toadd strapsas I dont dostrapless.

Is itOK fora wedding? less than 4 weeks to go

Post by: cylllyyy cylindra on Sun 12 October, 2008 - 10:42 am
I think it is lovely for a wedding but throw some colour in, say with necklace and shoes or maybe the handbag.  Rather than a cardi, what about a wrap.  You can get lovely sheer wraps for over the shoulder in amazing colours.  It does not even need to be sheer.  So that would keep you warm.

If it is too big it is very easy to adjust down a size - a dressmaker will be able to just run in the seams where it is too big.  It won't take long.  Any alteration place will be able to do this.

Post by: bytey on Sun 12 October, 2008 - 11:30 am
hmmmI cant do colour on the shoes, coz I really want those black ones.

I dont really do wraps, I am a cardi girl.

But putting those aside, what colour would you wear with a charcoaldressand black shoes?

Will def look into necklace and colourful cardi or something. but am notsure what colour wouldmatch.

I would love coloured shoes but I want to get the black ones coz they will go with other stuff and i can wear them to work.

Black shoes will be fab with it but yes more colour, not a black cardi as well. 

What is your fav colour - what looks best on you and makes you feel fab?  That is a good starting point as any colour will go with black/charcoal.   A coloured belt might cut you in half so not sure about that. 

See if it were me, I would be going for an electric blue or a lime green but I love those colours - not everyone's cup of tea.

Like the charcoal dress and the green shrug^^ combination , however I think you need a shrug that's shorter at the back


http://www.trademe.co.nz/Clothing/Womenswear/Tops-shirts/Size-8-under/auction-181966743.htm   maybe?

how about this dress with coloured pantyhose ? although maybe to big?

I like the colour of that shrug - but its too small,and I ama b***hunkyin the love handle department ot have something that short (am hoping the style of the dress will disguise).

I dont likethat other dress.

I amjust waiting fortheseller to answermy question and then I am going to buy now on the dress.

The charcoal dress is nice , maybe you could get the bright green shrug pee found up there^ I wonder if you could have the back made a bit shorter cos I think you need a short (balero) type of top with an open front and a big chunky necklace. Or no necklace and big earings.Not both though .

I goforthe natural type colours. But I wouldlike to try red lippy,I have dark hair and its kind of a funky style now and would probablysuit it - i just dont know if its me  :hehehe:

love that colour , not sure about the front , you would have to wear it open cos you don't want to close the front of the dress up

You should go to the chemist - get one of the ladies there to sit you down and play around with different colours (eye shadow and lippie).  They can be really good and know what will suit re skin type etc.  You don't have to buy anything but at least you can try all the different shades. 

Once you decide on your colour for the wrap/cardi/jacket - then let them know and they will try colours that will match in with your outfit. 

I love the brown shade lippies but I also love the voilet colours - both look good on me but if I go near the pale colours or ones like orange OMG total crap. 

I love the green shrug pee found up above but I love that colour - not 100% sure if it would suit the dress (style of it that is).  I think the red cardi is probably a better style for the dress you have got and of course red and black together always looks fab. 

You are going to look lovely on the day.  So don't worry.

 :bored:

I love the dress.......but too big. and stops in the wrong place, i.e. not quite short orlong enough. Stiops right bang on the middleof my knee (notgood), i would prefer just under.....and too big round hips and tummy.

But the dress is fab

Am gonna see what my sister can do,but might have to grab a second dress just in case.

Hmmm,  not sure about it being the right dress.

It looks dark..and tricky to accessorise successfully



Title: Re: Wedding is in 5 or 6 weeks
Post by: bytey on Thu 16 October, 2008 - 06:02 pm
its not dark - its quite light and kinda sparkley,but it doesnt fit so it dont matter anyway

I found a black dress so im probably going with that and a bright cardi

I bought another dress - a cute black one.

From a shop I hate - Pagani  :eek:

I also bought a cute pink cardi from there (oh and I got free sunnies LOL) but I amgutted coz it's angora and when I put it on over the dress then take it off - it leaves little hairs all over the dress. Is there anyway to stop it doing this or should i just get a new cardi?

I dont usually ave probs shoppig.

I just buy one thing and wear it regardless of whether it fits properly/looks good/is in fashion

f**k - see what happens when you move to welly and are surrounded by lots of pretty girls who look impeccable - it starts rubbing off

hey - in welly, even the tubby McD girls look impeccable.

Unfortunately, even in my pretty new dress and sexy shoes,I still look somewhat scruffy

Did you get that fringe cut in?

If you didn't...a simple sideways sweep of your hair across at the front....tucked behind your ear....then tied into a pony, with a strand of your hair wrapped around the hairtie, will make you look really elegant and totally go with that outfit.

Cute  :ok:


As for the one on tm..who the hell would pay $51 for a second hand Glassons dress?  :strange:


Title: Re: Wedding is in 5 or 6 weeks
Post by: bytey on Sun 19 October, 2008 - 09:56 pm
I know - especially considering I bought one today for $50 or $60 brand new.


Title: Re: Wedding is in 5 or 6 weeks
Post by: bytey on Sun 19 October, 2008 - 09:57 pm
in fact - I saw that dress in glassons the other day, or one very similar and im sure it was only 50 bucks


Title: Re: Wedding is in 5 or 6 weeks
Post by: ♥ poppy ♥ on Sun 19 October, 2008 - 09:59 pm
The times I have had a nosy in 'Glassons'

I don't recall ever seeing anything near the fifty dollar mark.

Can't stand their stuff, the few times I purchased there, the stuff lost it's shape and didn't stay looking nice for long.

Haven't been back in for years, so maybe their quality has improved...along with their prices going up?


Title: Re: Wedding is in 5 or 6 weeks
Post by: bytey on Sun 19 October, 2008 - 10:01 pm
They do have soem real nice stuff sometimes.

And prces have been on a similar note for as long as I can remember...they go from real cheap stuff to some reasonably expensive stuff.


Title: Re: Wedding is in 5 or 6 weeks
Post by: ♥ poppy ♥ on Sun 19 October, 2008 - 10:07 pm
You can get a Trelise Cooper skirt for that price on Tm  :hehehe:


Title: Re: Wedding is in 5 or 6 weeks
Post by: bytey on Sun 19 October, 2008 - 10:11 pm
I know some people do...but I don't care about labels. If I like something then I buy it regardless of whether its from some cheap s**tty shop or an expensive shop. I am not fussed who made it.

If I had to choose between a $50 kmart dress that I really really loved or a Trelise dressthat I really liked for the sameprice...id go for the kmart one because I like it more.


Title: Re: Wedding is in 5 or 6 weeks
Post by: ♥ poppy ♥ on Sun 19 October, 2008 - 10:18 pm
I used to buy stuff like that...

I still get the good old multifunction cheapie plain white tops / black tops at places like pagani.

Dresses and stuff from the cheapie places, I've never liked the feel of, or if I've liked them they just don't last well.

A well made piece stays in my wardrobe for a long time, and has a good resale value too.


Title: Re: Wedding is in 5 or 6 weeks
Post by: bytey on Sun 19 October, 2008 - 10:23 pm
I have found some of my cheapest clothing has lasted much longer than some of my more expensive stuff, and similarly for shoes too.

I have cheap glassons jeans and tops that I have had for going on 8 years and they still look fab, yet some of the more expensive stuff ive had f**ks out really quickly.

And I admit, I am not gentle with clothes. I am not a girly girl and I dont give a f**k about clothes so I am just as likely to do gardens in a $200 dress as I am in my $8 warehouse trackies  :hehehe:

I am getting a bit more presentation aware, I guess from being at work and everyone looks f**kin great, but mr bytey still has to remind me to get changed before I do rough stuff coz otherwise I wear my work s**t  :hehehe:
