I will get some better photos at the wedding, I just snapped these really quick in the midst of packing, but here's where I'm at...
- I shortened the peplum by a few cms. I would still like to do something with the neck/sleeves, but this is just more work than I have time for right now. Special mention to The Overflowing Stash who even shortened my peplum by photoshop!
- I heard you all on the shoes - I knew they weren't right, but I was trying to get away with not packing many pairs and also there is supposed to be lawn croquet at the wedding and prior experience tells me that heels and grass are a bad combination. I went for a strappy nude sandal that has a heel that will indeed sink into the grass - I'll just have to either duck out of the croquet or play barefoot! No doubt it will rain and get cancelled anyway so it seems silly to compromise the whole outfit for it and these are shoes I know I will wear many times.
- I really struggled to find a belt I liked so I got some black grosgrain ribbon, a bit wider than the leather belt I was wearing before.
- I do like the idea of adding a pop of colour, but really wasn't able to find a good combination of accessories that worked together. I picked up some coloured ribbon and flowers and will have a look when I am in the UK too so I haven't given up on this idea yet. Still need to get some jewellery too.
|Shoes, nude bag that I already owned which will work if I can't find something new (I also have a black satin bag that I might throw in the case too) and random assortment of flowers and ribbon|
These are terrible photos hurriedly taken while packing, but hopefully you get the idea.
Below right is the pre hack version for comparison. If you think it looked better before please don't tell me!
The shorter peplum makes such a difference. You look great!ReplyDelete
I think it does look better that little bit shorter. Have fun!ReplyDelete
Love it. It looks great with a shorter peplum. I like the idea of a flower belt but not with a matching hair flower. I'd skip the hair flower. The nude shoes look great too.ReplyDelete
You are just too cute, but stop showing that pattern. You're gonna make me have to buy it!!!ReplyDelete
I can't get over the big improvement in changing your shoes too.ReplyDelete
You look great!
Shorter is better. I agree with Kathi G. One flower, at the waist. I hope you can find some pop of color shoes, but the nude heels are much better than the black ones.ReplyDelete
Love the shorter peplum length and the nude heels and the pop of color that red belt brings.ReplyDelete
Sorry I am not feeling the flower in the hair... I feel that it takes away the attention from the dress and the belt. One focal point and everything else to supplement it would work well.
Oh beautiful job! Well done for getting it done. I love the black waist detail and the nude shoes... and even surprising myself, because I love red, I think it detracts from that most covetable lace.ReplyDelete
i love it!!!! congratulations.ReplyDelete
Looks great -you're wearing it rather than it wearing you, if that makes sense! Love the nude shoes too.ReplyDelete
Stunning! Love it with the black accent belt.ReplyDelete
Lovely. I vote for the red aaccent.ReplyDelete
yes! the shorter peplum looks better!ReplyDelete
Great fix! Definitely looks better. Have a wonderful time at the wedding!ReplyDelete
I love the shorter peplum and the black belt. What a beautiful outfit!ReplyDelete
Huge improvement! Love it with the black :) Have fun!!!ReplyDelete
Shorter peplum is good. Nude shoes even better. Don't go with red accessories. Do you have a black necklace?ReplyDelete
You looks stunning, the length is now perfect.ReplyDelete
Now you can stop analyzing and go have fun!
I loved the nude shoes with black accessories the best. Looks great!ReplyDelete
This is such a lovely outfit you've made. I hope you have a great time wearing it.ReplyDelete
I think the shorter peplum really works! My styling suggestion is a very long necklace, or else a wide statement necklace (such as the ubiquitous bubble one from J Crew and its million knockoffs). Either should be able to find at high street shops; I got surprisingly nice versions at Forever 21.ReplyDelete
I am wearing a fitted sheath today with an almost belly button length necklace that is chain for about 1/3 of it (the back and over the neck) and has three rows of sparkley beads for the rest. It really adds pizzazz and is a nice compensation for the dress's higher neckline.
Yes, new peplum length looks great! Love the pop of colour in the red version. Maybe belt and corsage?ReplyDelete
Enjoy the wedding.
Oh I am late to this party but I love the lace peplum and skirt. Its just lovely and wonderful colours for you.ReplyDelete
I wonder what you went with for the belt ... can't wait to find out and agree that the shorter peplum is better.
