Thursday Treats: Playing Dress Up and Getting Butterflies

August 21, 2014


I just got back from a two night stay in London with Carly, my bestie from Uni, who I’m bridesmaid for next year. We had all manner of pre-wedding fun times, mostly drinking cocktails and DRESS SHOPPING. Oh yes!

We visited some of my favourite boutiques, Luella’s Boudoir in Wimbledon, Blackburn Bridal in Blackheath (which I’d actually never been to before, but their Claire Pettibone collection was too beautiful to skip) and finally Fur Coat No Knickers near London Bridge. Many glasses of the fizzy stuff were quaffed, and many, MANY beautiful dresses were tried on. There were definitely some stand outs, and maybe one that’s even going to be ‘the one’. We both got butterflies and couldn’t stop beaming from ear to ear so that’s a good sign, right?!

This might be the most obvious thing I’ve ever written, but MAN, I love weddings. I’m so excited to be involved in planning her big day next November, this is going to be the most fun year ever!

Have you started dress shopping? Any butterfly moments yet?
