VIVIEN OF HOLLOWAY WEDDING WEEKEND pt.1

We left warm and sunny Helsinki last week and headed a bit more south to a colder and rainier place (now that's something you don't get to say often as a Finn I tell you!) for my cousins three-day wedding. *

I was pretty much dressed in Vivien of Holloway from top to toe all weekend long, like a living ad :)



I wore my red dotted halter neck pencil dress to the coctail party the night before the actual wedding. I've sewn a big pearl button on to the bolero since it was a bit too big for me - I think it works pretty well!

(The dress is rather amazing btw in the sense you can actually eat surprisingly much with it on and still not only look good in it but also keep on feeling great** (even after stuffing yourself with tapas the whole night). And that's a good thing since I like to eat.)

Dress, Bolero, Belt - Vivien of Holloway, Bag - vintage, Shoes - bought in Oslo



*) But even though the weather was shit the weekend was nice so no harm done.
**) Well it's a very good dress for other reasons too, like the one it gives your body a great houg-glass figure.

I'm dying to see the part 2.. =)

Oh, I have a question: what kind of scarf did you use on this pic ( http://4.bp.blogspot.com/_26yvOW5x3Hw/R9RMpnj_tKI/AAAAAAAAAjk/ZVQQjQvxTic/s1600-h/redribbon.jpg )? A retangular shaped one? Or is it not a scarf? I use a lot of scarves but I can't get this lace of yours done right!

Agreeing with all above. You look fabulous. I love Vivien of Holloway dresses. So much that I wore one as my wedding dress.

"The dress is rather amazing btw in the sense you can actually eat surprisingly much with it on and still not only look good in it but also keep on feeling great"

Apparently I have to get one since parties like weddings often include a lot of eating and drinking! And I do love my share of them.

Thank you thank you all <3

Burberry FIelds Forevah : jepp de gör ja!

Stephanie : a long rectangular one, not too wide. It's made of a crispy silky fabric. I just tied it a coupe of times around my head and tied the knot into a bow!

Vicen : oh, thanks :)

Hei! Olen seurannut jo pitkään blogiasi, mutta en ole ennen uskaltautunut kommentoimaan. Haluaisin kuitenkin sanoa nyt, että ihailen persoonallista tyyliäsi. :)
Perustin hetki sitten oman blogin ja haluaisin linkittää sinun blogisi siellä, toivottavasti se sinullekkin sopii? :)
