Wow – a bridesmaids dress that is absolutely beautiful – and wearable after the fact!!! I love the whimsical creams with the harder, edgy black, it's such a nice contrast.

You look amazing! I love your blog. Greetings from Germany. :-)

Skye said...

Pale pink and black is one of my favourites - lovely! I'm glad you had a wonderful weekend, here in Sydney (so now you know where I'm from) it was freezing cold and I spent a very dull weekend blowing my nose and moping!

Grant said...

Lady M I have had a shitty weekend, but it makes it better that my Blogging peers have been out and about looking stunning.

You are, as always, a vision!

Blogette said...

Absolutely stunning. I love the contrast of the sharp tailoring of the tux jacket against the super pretty girly dress. Lovely.

Penny said...

you're so lucky that you got to wear a nice bridesmaid dress! the one i had to wear was navy blue and gold with TOO many puffs and ruffles.
love it with the tuxedo blazer, looking sharp!

Hi LM, I love how the girly outfit was completed with a cool black jacket. Hope a wonderful week follows your weekend!

the petticoat is beautiful

danielledelamont said...

I am a big fan of that petticoat is is so airy and light. The juxtaposition of the tough shoes with it and the sharp blazer with the dress works really well :)

madeleinemiranda said...

Bonne journée,

Mademoiselle M.

Esme- I was lucky I think, but then she has great taste so I was in good hands.

Anon- thank you, greetings from Melbourne!

Skye- For some reason I thought you were a Melbourne chick?! It was freezing here too but you take it for granted most of the time. I'm sorry to hear your nose was runny.

Grant- despair! A bad weekend? I feel so sorry for you.

Blogette- Why thank you, colour is extremely important to me and it is exactly how I saw this outfit- in contrasts.

Penny- dear me, I would have cut it up and found some other use for it but navy blue and gold- I'm thinking cheer leaders or a uniform of some kind. Poor you!
I love my tux jacket too...

Heart- thank you, I hope you have a lovely week ahead too!

-h- thank you kindly.

Danielle- that is exactly what I was aiming for, you must have an eye for detail!

Madelmoiselle M- thank you!

Kirstie- thank you, I'm glad you like it.

Puf!- thank you, I love these colorus as well.

As always thank you all for stopping by, so lovely to hear what you all got up to!

Oh wow I adore the bridesmaids dress and find it totally cool that you can wear it again after the event!

Miss_Corrine said...

Amazing - love the contrast of the dress with the shoes and belt - you look utterly stunning :)

Miss Karen said...

I love a bit of boufiness. The dress is spectacular.

My weekend was sponsored by Baileys so it was good times all round hehe.

miss shoo said...

Love the pale pink, it's girly good fun and quite inspiring.

enc said...

It's been great over here.

You look peachy keen! I love the contrast of the shoes to the dress. Perfectly done.

The Clothes Horse said...

The volume from that petticoat is so lovely--especially balanced with the blazer.

Fashion Tidbits said...

i was about to say. that is a gorgeous gorgeous dress!!! obviously it wasen't on of those dresses you just find anywhere.

karahh said...

I simply love that dress!
I'm amazed at how you can wear it without looking like you are in fact going to a wedding!

StrikeMatch said...

I agree with Esme, I'd be over the moon to have such a lovely wearable bridesmaids dress!

I'm glad you had a good weekend, mine was busy,busy, busy.

Lisa said...

I don't think its possible for you to take a bad picture!

It's simply NOT possible.

You look stunning.

that tuxedo jacket is killer. Perfect balance with the dress.

Super Kawaii Mama said...

Frothy goodness here. My weekend? Spent wishing for a magic wand to wave over my house and make it all pretty without all the work.

Ana said...

Jeez that dress is amazingly ruffy and lovely. I like how you grounded it with the blazer.

The Collector said...

Very nice.
You make this look so easy and casual - you inspire me to wear all my best pieces on a daily basis... but all my best pieces are light and Summer-y. I need warm weather now!!!!!!!!!!!!!

bronwyn said...

This dress is very dreamy, it's gorgeous. It looks so versatile too.

PorcelainBlonde said...

Ohhh love this! I wear this combo a bit too :) A blazer over a girly frock, its the perfect juxtaposition.

Thats one beautiful bridesmaids dress too! You look lovely as always.

Dotti said...

Gorgeous dress, gorgeous colour, gorgeous looking. And I had a perfect time, too. What makes the contrast to those grey weekdays even worse...

cassaundra said...

I just stumbled upon your blog the other day and I can't believe how lovely you are.

You should change your name to Grace or something.

It suits you.

skgillespie said...

Just when I think 'This is the best outfit ever' I find another one that is even better! Thank you for being my new favourite inspiration!
