Spread your wings and fly..

Hey lovelies,

I really wanted to do an outfit post for you on sat to show off the dress I rented (and you chose) for the engagement party I went to...

...but I was sick with the flu (worst timing!) and was running late, so I didn’t get a chance to take any pictures of my outfit :(

I loved the dress, and wore it with a blazer to the engagement party. I also had a Halloween party to go to after the engagement party (busy, busy) so I took the blazer off and put some wings on, in a half-assed attempt to be a “butterfly” lol.

Not sure why they had a Halloween party last sat when it’s Halloween this sat, but whatevs!

Now I need your help again. I've got 2 weddings coming up in November that are a week apart. Usually for weddings I'd rent a dress but not sure what to do in this case, so I need your advice -

Should I...

a) Rent 2 x dresses?
b) Rent 1 x dress, Buy 1 x cheap dress?
c) Buy 1 x nice (expensive) dress and wear it to both?

Today I wore -

♥ Miss shop white shirt
♥ Country road cardi
♥ Cue black pants
♥ Siren heels
♥ OPI What’s with the catitude? nailpolish



  1. C! Buy one nice dress and just style it differently with shoes and accessories.

  2. i like your use of neutrals. :)

  3. I love the butterfly idea, very cute :) I'm all for cheap fashion, so I would go buy two cheap dresses. But for you, maybe buy one expensive one to wear to both?

  4. are you a butterfly in a butterfly dress?

    i say get one rad dress and wear it to both occasions.
    or.. whatever you like :)

  5. You looked great!:D

    I think it's a good idea to buy one nice dress and use it twice.:D Just wear different accessories.:D

    Happy Tuesday!:D

  6. oh the dress suits a butterfly perfectly. pretty pretty. i dunno what i'd do? are the same sorts of people going to be at the weddings? cos if so id go with two different dresses, if not id get a nice expensive one cos you will def wear it again.
    p.s i linked you to my blog too, i actually thought i already had?? but checked and hadnt. thanks for linking me :) sending you blog love

  7. Love the colorful print. The wings were a clever way to transform the dress into a costume.

    I'm with the others: it's much better to buy one nice dress and wear it twice. Good clothes are worthwhile investments.

  8. It's always nice wearing new clothes so I guess rent 1, buy 1? But I also agree with the rest that you could easily change up the styling on one fabulous dress and wear it twice.

    The butterfly dress is really nice btw=)

  9. mm.. it depends, if there will be the same people at both weddings then probably you should rent two dresses, if not, you can just rent one and wear it to the both of them.xx

  10. I love the dress!


  11. I love this dress, it is so cute! Good idea throwing some wings on for a butterfly costume as well! I think you should get one lovely dress and wear it too both weddings. xo


  12. I'm sure you looked amazing dear!

  13. I love that dress,it reminds me of butterflies.

  14. i love the dress it is so pretty!! and that is so hard to decide, if is two different groups then i would definitely buy one really nice dress to wear twice :)

  15. Oooh good choice! I love the butterfly print! :) I say you buy one and rent the other, so that you're semi-saving money, semi-having fun and spending money haha! ;)

  16. cute!! whats this rent a dress thingy? i've never heard!!! x

  17. Such a pretty print and fabric!!

    I think if you find a dress you LOVE that's a splurge, then go for it. otherwise I would choose option a or b.

    xoxo, Ashley

  18. I wish you did a better shot of you in the dress, as it looks lovely! x


  19. First of all I love the butterfly dress, I'm looking to buy something similar myself. Second I think renting is always better when it comes to event-dresses because the chances of u wearing the dress more then once are were slim, especially within 2 weeks. I think renting two fabulous dresses would be the better choice.

  20. Love the dress on you! Are there going to be people there who will also attend both the weddings? If not, I would probably just buy one great dress and style it differently.

  21. LOVE that dress!!! You looked so cute:-)



I ♥ reading all of your sweet comments, thanks so much!
