Planning a wedding is HARD. Guest lists are hard, choosing bridesmaids’ dresses that don’t look like bridesmaids’ dresses is hard, creating a budget you can actually stick to when you’re entertaining 150 people is hard. I’ve found myself seeking refuge from spreadsheets (my hatred for Excel is widely documented on Twitter) in my local charity shops, which helps with two things – a quick rummage through the rails gives me something other than chair covers to think about, and if I do find something lovely, I can actually buy it because it’s cheap. I’m on a bit of a shopping ban from now until September 2013 (argh) so these small purchases have really helped.
The dress is a bit of a drop-waisted, shapeless affair which I’d never usually go for but I loved the cute collar and geometric print so bought it to try… and surprisingly, I really like it!
I’m carrying my new bag which was kindly sent to me by the team at knomo. I bought my first knomo after a recommendation from Bangs who replied to my plea for a beautiful yet functional bag for my MacBook, and have loved the brand ever since. I’ll be writing a full post on this baby soon but safe to say it’s the new love of my life.
Can I marry a handbag? *muses*
