OK, it’s been a while I know.
What can I say, I completely underestimated the amount of work involved to run not one, but two blogs.
(Lesson learnt there folks!)
Anyhow, I hope you’ll forgive my absence for the last few weeks and that this post will make it all up to you, a little.
Because today, I want to celebrate and champion the little black dress, otherwise known as the LBD.
(You know something is good when it’s known by just capitals, right?!)
I love this black, sixties-inspired Fever London dress. It’s been in my possession for about nine months now and I’ve worn it several times.
It’s classic, it’s easy to wear and best of all, somehow, it makes me feel French, perhaps a little Parisian even!
SEE, this is what I adore about dresses.
Every single one of them.
The ability for us to feel different. The ability for us to tap into different parts of ourselves. The ability to play different roles.
This dress, this gorgeous green dress from Precis Petite makes me feel like a lady.
It makes me want to walk with my head held high, it makes me feel feminine and it also makes me feel really rather lovely.
I AM delighted to bring to you all the very first ‘My Wedding Dress’ feature.
And just a little bit giddy with excitement!
Because let’s face it, who amongst us doesn’t love looking at beautiful images of beautiful brides in beautiful dresses, on one of the happiest days of their lives.
I defy even the most cynical among you not to be able to read this and feel a little warmer and cosier inside.
My first bride is the very lovely Hazel Miles, a freelance graphic designer who married her husband Andy less than two months ago at The Swan in Lavenham.
Here she tells us all about her wedding dress that made her cry tears of joy. Thank you Hazel and congratulations!
So please, grab yourself a cup of tea, settle down and enjoy! I just know you’re all going to agree that Hazel looks absolutely exquisite.
