% Bridesmaid Dress Shopping $

Well, my brother is getting married on October 23rd! It's going to be in Malaysia and I leave on the 9th for it. I'm so very excited, just to go back there as it's been far too long and I miss my family over there (most of them live there - my parents were born and raised there) which is HUGE so its always fun going back! And by huge, I mean I have around 85-90 first cousins alone. I don't even know half of them!!! LOL

It was only decided a few days ago that my brother would be having 4 groomsmen and so my sister-in-law-to-be needed an extra bridesmaid and so she asked me! Of course I jumped at the chance and so dress shopping ensued!!

We planned meeting at Selfridges after work just to look around as we didn't think we'd find anything on the first go.

My budget was £150 so we first hit the Women's Fashion sections and quickly realised that the nice dresses were at least £600, so down to "Women's Street Fashion" we went...

All Saints, Topshop, Coast, Lipsy etc

Here are some pics of me trying on dresses:
The changing room had infinity mirrors (mirrors on and so creative pics happened:

And this is the dress we chose in the end!
It's actually a size 6 (surprising!) so it means no eating and plenty of exercise from now on!By no eating I meant healthy eating. No eating sugary snacks! (Don't ever not eat, you will die of starvation. True story.)

Link for the dress on the Lipsy site here
(it comes in a blue-toned purple as well, which I tried on first and can be seen above in some pics)

Also got this dress too!
But I only realise now I don't have a pic... so you can see it on the Lipsy site here :)

And Mel (the bride) got this dress!

So, what are your thoughts? Lipsy WINS hands-down for me!

Love love and dresslove!!

  4. You look gorgeous!
    Which part of Malaysia will you be heading to? If you are going to Kuala Lumpur, do visit Sunway Lagoon! Also do try out the Silkygirl cosmetics. The shimmer duo blusher is uh-mae-zing! ;)
