|Phase Eight Kazumi Maxi Dress - John Lewis|
Evans Strappy Wedges
The second problem is that my weight swings up and down like a yo-yo, so I don't have any wardrobe basics to fall back on. When ever a wedding appears on my calendar there's a mad search to find something suitable to wear. Unfortunately this time things were also complicated by stress and illness. When my kidney stones act up I feel constantly nauseous, causing me to eat constantly - and combined with comfort eating around my needle anxiety I could almost guarantee I'd put weight on before the wedding.
So I resisted shopping to the very last minute. With just over a week till the wedding, I hit the shops. I'd struck out in a couple of stores when I spotted this gem from Phase Eight. It's fantastically slimming and very comfortable, which was a good thing as we'd need to do an injection half way through the evening.
The biggest problem was shoes. The night before the wedding I broke down and bought a pair of strappy wedges on sale from Evans (no Step Down points there!).
I did buy a bracelet to go with the dress and tried some dangly earrings, but on the day I thought extra jewellery was a bit too much. Looking back at the photos though I think it does need a touch more sparkle. Hopefully I can find something before the next wedding in February (assuming the dress still fits by then!)
