Waltrui's Wish List #1

by Waltrui

I constantly make wish lists. When I come across a sofa or a pair of shoes I like, I automatically save it in my head. No surprise that head tends to explode from time to time. Pinterest is a great tool, but I mostly use it to look around and dream away about Chanel bags I can't afford. Sometimes I need a practical list, a list of stuff I can actually buy without eating jam sandwiches the rest of the month. I decided to give my head a break and put my wish lists here, on the blog. You're welcome!

My first official wish list is all about dresses. Next month, we have a wedding to attend, the perfect excuse for a new outfit. Setting up this list, I developed two ground rules for the wedding guest dress code.

Rule number one: don't wear plain white when someone else is getting married. Outshining the bride might be ok, pretending to be the bride is rather pathetic (this is probably also why you should leave veils at home). A little black dress never hurt anyone, but make sure to pick at least one happy accessory. Even when the groom is really hot, try not to mourn too obviously.

Rule number two: keep it fresh and breezy, especially in summer. This is your opportunity to show some skin - you don't want to look like you ran a marathon after one booty shake. For the same reason: choose a dress you can move in. A moaning zipper means it's hugging your figure a little too hard.

Going to a wedding yourself? Use the hashtag #waltruiswishlist and let me see what you're wearing!

The dresses are for sale at MANGO, & Other Stories, COS, Zara and French Connection. The pictures belong to the brands.
