Love is in the air

"We're all a little weird.  And life is a little weird.  And when we find someone whose weirdness is compatible with ours, we join up with them and fall into mutually satisfying weirdness - and call it love - true love."  ~Robert Fulghum, True Love

I have my 1st engagement in the family!  It's all my family can talk about, well on my mum's side.  On my dad's side, I am the oldest & ain't no ring on my finger yet! So my gorgeous cousin Andrea got engaged to her fiance Mick, (haha first time I have called him that) at Christmas.  It was no surprise really as they have been going out for years and my granny actually likes Mick better than some of her own grandchildren!  I don't think I have mentioned it before but my Mum's family is Italian.  I have spent every summer since I was a kid going over to the village where my family is from (It is inbetween Rome and Naples and is called San Andrea if you want to google map it.  I am a geography freak so it's what I would do) . I love it over there, granted sometimes we have no running water but it is beautiful.  This is where my cousin wants to get married.  I am super jealous, it has been a dream of ours, when we were little girls dreaming about our wedding day to get married in the village square, sun beaming down and lots of italian food on the way.

So yes, I am getting distracted by white dresses and a beautiful sunny wedding day.  I have my cousin's engagement party down in dublin this weekend.  It is in a gorgeous new bar called The Bath House in sandymount and I have no idea what to wear.  What do you wear to an engagement party?!? I have never been to one!! I have just realised how old I am getting when my diary is fills up with engagement parties and weddings rather than cinema dates.  It's scary.  But yes, is it fancy? or it's a party with the potential to go to a nightclub afterwards so standard night out dress? I would love a new dress for it.  I hate to admit it but I would really love a new dress.  I think cause it's such a special occasion rather than just a random event.  I am purposely staying away from Asos.  But honesty, I have a load of dresses in my wardrobe I could wear to it that have only been worn once.  I have a gorgeous yellow/mustard coloured dress that would be perfectly on trend for the colours this season that I bought last summer that has been worn once.  Or a gorgeous red lace skater dress I bought for my Christmas party.  Or an alternative red peplum dress I bought as a back up for my Christmas party that hasn't been worn at all.  The list is truly endless...

This is my yellow dress that I wore bakc in August with my lovely housemates

This is the red lace skater dress that I am thinking of wearing too.

  1. personally my vote is with the yellow, although that red dress is gorgeous! i feel like either would be good for an engagement party though.
    let us know what you go with :)
