Open- minded shopping - a better way to shop.
Are you the person who goes out shopping for one thing and comes home with something else? Yes I do too, I found two wedding outfits when I was out shopping for something completely different.
I ended up sticking them in the back of the cupboard and bringing them out intime to style up with necklace, shoes and bag.
How often do you go out to look for a specfic item and find something else. Maybe that's the key, to go out with an open mind, look at anything that catches your eye, and also what doesn't, then try things on. Sometimes it's good to step outside your comfort zone, you never know what might suit you until you've seen in the flesh what it actually looks like.
This two piece I picked up about 6 months prior to needing it, this was a few years ago from TK Max, and I didn't buy it with this wedding in mind. It's a beautiful pale green, layered dress with spaghetti straps and matching 3/4 sleeve bolero jacket. I finished off with a long string of layered pearls, pearl earrings, Pistachio suede courts, that I bought with more luck than judgement ( I thought they were cream) and the little cream clutch bag I found in TK Max complemented perfectly. So ladies be a little open-minded when you're out shopping you could end up with a whole new wardrobe! X
