For K and I, this year has been The Year Of The Weddings – six in total.
I love a wedding – seeing two people looking the happiest you’ve ever seen them, watching all the guests showering them with love, plus lots of food, drink and dancing. I honestly think going to weddings might be one of my favourite things to do.
(Is there such as career as Professional Wedding Guest? If so, I would totally rock at it).
As is expected, part of going to a wedding is getting dolled up for the occasion and the last two we went to this year meant I got to do something I’ve been wanting to do for ages – buy a Voodoo Vixen dress. In fact, I am now the very proud owner of two Voodoo Vixen pieces and they are absolute beauties!
This is their Betty Boo dress, a stunning emerald green taffeta with a velvet peacock design overlay. I had to do a bit of emergency DIY on this as it was too low cut to wear a bra with and there was significant danger of my lady lumps falling out. However, after a bit of a sewing job, all risk of boob explosion was removed and I felt ultra glamorous. The cut of it with the slightly flared skirt gives the illusion of a nipped in waist (always a bonus) and being a redhead, the colour is one I’m always told I should wear more of. In fact, a man I’d never seen before in my life came over to tell me he liked it, which just shows how stunning it really is!
This is their Kitty dress, and although I wouldn’t usually wear pink, there was absolutely no chance I was going to walk away from a dress with cats on it. I love the style of this, with the slightly flared skirt again, decorative belt and feature cut-outs around the neckline. It also has pockets in it and I bloody love a pocket in a dress. I got loads of compliments on this as well and felt a million dollars all day!
Whilst writing this post today I made the mistake of taking a peek at the Voodoo Vixen website and they have a whole load of new stock in. All of which is so beautiful it hurts my eyes to look at them.
I love the whole retro vintage look of Voodoo Vixen and definitely think their products are investments as they’re going to remain timeless over the years to come. There are so many other pieces on their website that I’ve added to my Want List – especially their dress called Penny – of course I have to have this; it’s a sign, right?
Both my dresses were priced around the £50 mark which I don’t think is too bad when you think how much you could spend on a wedding-appropriate dress from High Street retailers, but Voodoo Vixen has the added elements of quirkiness and their retro feel.
Sometimes you just fall in love with a brand, and Voodoo Vixen have well and truly secured themselves a spot in my heart.
What do you think of their range?
