Requested Dress for Less: After the Wedding



  Tuesday, June 7, 2011 at 8:00 AM   |    Post a Comment     Tagged:,, 
Jenna requested a dress for less this past weekend for a very special day:
Hi, I'm looking for a dress for less for my wedding/honeymoon going away outfit. I need a cute ensamble for leaving the wedding hotel/driving to london/plane ride/arrival in Orlando for my honeymoon!
It needs to be comfortable but I also need to make a bit of an effort for my new hubby! I'll need something to keep me warm if the UK weather takes a turn but also adaptable to the florida sunshine when I arrive!
I am looking to spend about £50 and willing to shop online or uk stores. No colours are out and was thinking some kind of a dress as a starting point!
Since she will be traveling a lot it needed to be very comfortable and also able to keep her warm on the plane but then very cool once she arrives in the heat of Florida. This was a lovely challenge, and hopefully I succeeded!
Dress: Forever 21 £14.50
This dress was a very close second, but I decided to go for a more simple look instead, but this will work well with the items too:  Forever 21 £19.75
Cardigan: Forever 21 £9.99
Necklace: Fashion Union £8 or £7.2*
Sandals: Fashion Union £8 or £7.2*
Purse: Fashion Union £12 or £10.8*
TOTAL: £52.49 OR £49.69*
* If it is your first purchase at Fashion Union you can use the code FIRST for 10% off!


P.S. Luello.com is having a giveaway where you can win a $2500 shopping spree!! YAY!

  11. Usually I go for leggings when I fly, but a soft jersey maxi seems like an even more stylish alternative. So cute!
