Monsoon isn’t always the first stop that comes to mind for gorgeous style, but as these few fabulous finds prove, there’s more to monsoon than meets the eye. Make the most of this Zahara Maxi Dress on your honeymoon, all it’s missing is the golden tan and electric blue accessories to match. This Marquise dress is so stylish, un-frilly slate grey and mint green colours would look super trendy on your bridesmaids at an urban wedding. The Hetty Lace dress works with a soft monochrome theme, and with the lace detail bodice, it’s a subtle compliment to the bride if she’s in lace. And finally, let your bridesmaids be the ladies in red at a winter wedding with the girly but chic Naomi Applique dress. Changed your mind about Monsoon now? I have.
I know I know I know they are so expensive but the thing is, I’m not a shoe girl (ashamedly) but boy oh boy did I fall in love with the Gino shoe from Louboutin. I’m trying to persuade my bride-to-be friend that these aren’t just any shoes. Wedding shoes, Honeymoon shoes, Party shoes, any special occasion shoes… The list goes on. These are a seriously good investment, and how cute would that little pink toe look peeking from out of your wedding dress? Or if like me, you think they would be wasted hidden – rock these little beauties with a short dress and make the most of them. Only thing is, be prepared to have more gushing comments about your shoes than about you.
A few funky little accessories that I’ve come across over at, would you believe it, M&S. The light balls are a total bargain and as they are battery operated, sit neatly on the tables without wires providing a gentle glow and subtle colour changes. For an evening reception, I can see them grouped together on tables, if the environment is fairly modern and white to give a splash of colour and a sort of trendy bar feel. Or, line them up a pathway or on tables outside to create a warm and inviting atmosphere outside. The other item is the gel fire bowl, and when lit it adds a total wow factor to any table, indoors or outdoors, summer or winter it’s a centrepiece to gather around for sure.
