It’s always tricky to find the perfect dress for a big event, especially if you, like me, love second-hand shopping. When you don’t need a floor length gala dress, they seem to pop up everywhere. And when you really need one they vanish, as by magic.
Here the dress is in action at the staircase at The Royal Meridien:
It’s by posh British designer Amanda Wakeley and was one of the leftovers from a charity auction at the Oxfam shop. It cost me 95 pounds and was worth every penny.
I wore it with my beige Balenciaga wedge sandals that I bought in Italy last year and luckily I had saved them for the right moment. They were really comfortable and I sailed safely through the wedding and post-wedding partying without a single blister to show for it the day after.
