Buying Occasion Wear.

Recently I did a little Q&A with Becky about occasion wear so for the next few weeks I’m going to be sharing some of the things we discussed.

This week it is all about how Becky buys our occasion wear. I asked Becky if she had a favourite brand to buy from?

Becky – A number if the occasion brands have beautiful showrooms in wonderful historic buildings in London which definitely sets the scene for what they are selling but if I had to choose one it would be Veni Infantino. They put on a proper catwalk show so you can see the outfits on a body and moving.

How far in advance do you do the buying?

Becky – Buying takes place around 7-9months ahead of it arriving in the shop. Each item is is made to order which is why it has to be done in advance.

Why do you only buy one in each size?

Becky – I usually only buy one in each size to make the collection a little more exclusive.

Floral Print 4.

A lot of the floral prints come in different colours so when it comes to picking accessories you can really show off your personality. The feature image dress has oranges, reds, greens, yellows. Any of these colours would work for accessories, what colour you pick will probably will different to mine. That is what is so fun about fashion.

Floral Print 1.

This season print is a big trend especially floral so over the next few weeks I am going to be talking you through some of the positives to wearing floral.

  1. No matter the style of dress you suit there will be a floral one out there for you. It isn’t only the long floaty dresses to be in a floral print, we also have the shift dresses so there will be something to suit you.

Comfort Zone.

When you walk up to the Occasion Wear floor and you see all the beautiful dresses it can be quite overwhelming. Especially as many of us live in jeans and trainers. But that is why we are here, we are here to help you every step of the way and trust me once you have tried that first one on it gets easier.

If we wore Occasion Wear every day it wouldn’t be special and would become the norm. A wedding is a special event and therefore as Mother of the Bride or Groom you deserve a special dress.

To All The Mothers.

With Mother’s Day just round the corner it only seemed right to do a blog for all the Mothers.

Whether you are a Mum, Step Mum, Grandma, Nan, Granny, Great Grandma, Godmum you are all so special.

At special occasions we also remember the Mums who cannot be there. Being a mum is one of the most wonderful gifts in the world and I can say that because I am one. But it can also be one of the hardest things.

One of the things I love most about my job is meeting all you lovely Mums who are looking for outfits. We all are happy to be a part of this special journey with so many of you.

Brides In Colour.

Following on from last weeks blog on weddings being less traditional and more to the couples tastes another trend we are hearing a lot is that the bride is not wearing white. Jessica Biel is a famous example of this when she married Justin Timberlake. Her wedding dress was pink.

As Mother’s of the Bride and Groom’s we have always advised on staying away from a white and ivory dresses (unless the theme is white and black for example.) But if the bride is in a colour again it can open up lots of possibilities.
