Hobbs headpiece and navy dress, vintage Ferragamo over-sized clutch
I have a few more weddings to attend in the near future - one of them in the winter and another I am hoping will be Spring or Autumn (Summer can get too hot). For both, I am hoping to wear some of the vintage pieces that I have found and am waiting for the opportunity to wear.
Hopefully, the setting will be a crisp November winter's day and with the historic backdrop of an estate in Kent, I am hoping to be inspired by the old Hollywood starlet styles as well as one of my fashion inspirations Nicole Warne. I hope to wear a maxi, long-sleeved, black, woolen dress with a high neckline and pair it with a blonde faux fur coat. I am afraid to wear real fur in the UK just in case I have a Carrie (Stephen King's Carrie not Carrie Bradshaw) moment and get doused in pig's blood or red paint. Not sure how the combination will look but in my mind's eye, it seems like a potential combination. Accessories yet to be decided but I might bite the bullet and sport some ruby red lips.
Another friend has announced his engagement and I am hoping that it will be a Spring/Autumn wedding ( I love the fact that I want to decide the time of his wedding not the happy couple whose wedding it will be!) Another of my vintage finds is another maxi dress which has an amazing Pucci inspired print which I am hoping to pair with a brown/tan belt and my brown Miu Miu heels. No jewellery except for may be a pair of Dior inspired earrings....
The question for both scenarios is what bag to take? I am assuming a clutch would be the best option but as I like to carry a lot of stuff, the clutch will have to be large enough for everything. I love the concept of a minaudiere but it is impossible for me to limit myself to a few things. An option would be the quilted Chanel clutch...
