Wedding dress Saturday

Not going to fit into my actual wedding dress, being 4 stone heavier than I was then! I found a bargain Cherlone dress on eBay, and decided to grab it for today (then I don't know WHEN I'll wear it, maybe sell it on for a bargainous price ^_^)

Maya & Anya - Dresses - BHS, Shoes - Crocs.
Dress & shawl - Cherlone, Parasol - handmade lace from market. Headbands - Accessorise.

The girls often wear these dresses. They have a box downstairs with bridesmaids dresses and froofy tutus that they can dress up in - had to find and wash these ready for today. They were bridesmaids for my sister in May 2011 wearing these, and the headbands were from being bridesmaids at my sister-in-law's wedding in April this year.
So this is a normal sight .....

Under my non-actual-wedding dress, I wore the petticoat and shoes that I wore as maid of honour at my sisters' wedding...

Shoes - Irregular Choice. Petticoat - Hell Bunny.

Oddball day

As I was clearing up after breakfast I saw a post on a friends' facebook wall, sharing a status from Lush -

Special treat alert! If today, you and more than four friends come in store and sing 'we wish you a merry christmas' as loud as can be, there will be prizes galore for you...

and so to Covent Garden we went...

and met a Moomin! (as well as flashmobbing Lush - all 13 of us ^_^ and getting freebie Chrimbo soaps)

kids were tired once we were home, but the girls hadn't forgotten to dressember, so I took a photo while they were giving their torts some dandelion they'd found on the way back...

Maya - Dress - Vertbaudet, Belt & Trousers - H&M
Anya - Dress - Nomads

I'd wondered if/when I'd wear this dress, cannot even remember where/when I got it. It's a bit, odd. I like it, but it looks a bit like a few bags have been sewn together. Ha!
The bizarreness of today seemed a good a time as any though, and I desperately wanted to wear some skinny jeans under my dress it was so wet when we were going out. I stayed comfy all day :) May have to really embrace the madness and find some mustard tights for it :p

Dress - Laura Lees for Topshop, Shoes - Sugar.
Two weeks in already! And now I know I can fit into some of my Laura Lees, I'm a bit panicky at getting all my fave dresses in in the half month we have left!

The girls are a bit poorly, snotty and spent the day on the sofa. By mid afternoon I wondered if they might have forgotten Dressember, when they asked for a bath. They shared Anya's Lush snow fairy wand, got out and put on jumper dresses, before getting on and helping prep dinner!

Dresses both M&S

Springing Saturday

bouncy things in Tesco dresses

I was away, but that didn't stop my little ones from dressembering, oh no. Both did the 'springy' assignment too. Bless 'em.

I did "spring" as best I could in today's dress - 

Not the *best* look! Haha!

a *little* tipsy, maybe
Everyone loves B.U.R.L.E.S.Q.U.E.
