Burberry dreams

Ok, so back to a certain level of pinkness…

I have this wedding to go to in Austria (also known as Gringowlindowland) and of course I am already thinking about my dress. Even though the wedding is only in the end of August. And even though I haven’t even received the invitation. Call me crazy (although I have a nagging feeling that my craziness won’t seem crazy at all to my fellow inhabitants of the female species).

The thing is, I am scarred for life because of this wedding I went a few years back in Madrid. It was a pretty fancy affair but my budget was not stretching very far. So I had the idea of wearing a dress I already owned, a long sleeveless black piece, and jazz it up with a fringed shale. Very Spanish, I thought. Of course it was 150 million degrees and the reception was outdoors. Black in the Spanish summer, what was I thinking? Plus, a friend, not realizing I was wearing black, remarked how “it was a faux pas to wear black at a wedding in Spain”.

To summarize, I spent the whole day hot and very self-conscious (at least until the champagne kicked in and I forgot I even had a dress on).

So since then I take great care to plan my (other people’s) wedding outfits.

I have already found the first contestant. Never mind is from Burberry Prorsum and therefore out of by budget by about 3 thousand pounds. A girl can always dream…

A black dress for a wedding in Spain during a heatwave? I can't help but laugh with your stories. They are fun, fun, fun. Great blog!

Long time, no see...

Oh, that first wedding sounds like a disaster! I wore black to my sister's graduation and it was boiling--I think I got heat burn and sun burn that day. Good luck on your next wedding dress pick!
