My Afternoon Online Shopping BROWSE for a Wedding Outfit - as a guest not a bride!

I am soon going to a wedding in Ireland, and I think for the first time, may just get Aaron properly suited and booted.  I think he is old enough (read "tall enough") now to carry it off, whereas the last two weddings we went to, one in August 2012 and the other only in May 2013 actually, he dressed like this.

Anyhow, moving swiftly on to me, as money is tight, and I have the cost of flights and the whole caboodle I think my dress will be an economy job, and what better way to look great on a budget than New Look.

So here is my wish list of dresses at New Look.  There is SO much choice, that it took quite a lot of rummaging to find these, luckily, online, that does not require any legwork :-)

What I love about it, is the filter on the left, where you can reduce what appears on screen to what you are really looking for, i.e. choose between day dresses, evening, or maxi etc... and then choose style, and then choose size.  THAT should nail things down just a little :-)  Having just used those 3 filters I now have an additional one pop up, which is price.  That will really focus my view and my mind.

Cream (Cream) Ruby Prom Cream Molly Flower Applique Prom Dress  | 269707013 | New Look

Hmmmm I don't think I used the price button correctly as this little beauty came up, and I am sitting looking at it, with my tongue hanging out thinking, if only! It is an online exclusive at GBP 224.99

Anyway, pop and I am back in the room, reality check over.  So, some serious wish list items coming below:

Black Pattern (Black) Shell Pink 2 in 1 Necklace Playsuit  | 289515009 | New Look
I know this isn't formal enough for a big formal Irish family wedding (Catholic) but I kind of LOVE it and keep coming back to it.  It's a play suit at a reasonable GBP 27.99

By the way, if lace is your thing, get yourself over to New Look but don't expect to find any here.  Lace has me going YUK YUK YUK all the way home!

Rich Purple (Purple) Bright Purple Embellished Cut Out One Shoulder Prom Dress | 286795154 | New Look
LOVE LOVE LOVE the above prom dress.  It is an online exclusive and a very reasonable GBP 44.99.

Black (Black) Firetrap Black Jamie Leather Zip Sleeve Dress | 262546801 | New Look

Firetrap Black Jamie Leather Zip Sleeve Dress

Now £113.00Was £225.99

The above is not appropriate for a wedding, nor does it work with my size 18 current figure but what a bargain!

Red (Red) Aftershock Red Ruffled Strapless Sweet Pea Dress | 253081760 | New Look

I LOVE the above but it is on sale and therefore limited - only available in a size 8!!!! Errrr put a ONE before that 8 please!!!

Black (Black) Firetrap Black India Draped Dress | 245835801 | New Look

Back in my LBD days I would have SNAPPED this up but errrm it is only available in XS and S as it is also reduced!

Pink (Pink) Praslin Black and Pink Butterfly Dip Hem Dress | 284003670 | New Look

The above would not work with my Mum Tum as its narrow point is my largest
BUT it is reduced from GBP 40 to GBP 25 and is available in an 18 as it is in the plus size section.  If it suits YOU I would snap it up.  It's long at the back and short at the front - a beauty!

Navy (Blue) Inspire Navy Sequin Strap Maxi Prom Dress | 277029241 | New Look
And after much online rummaging I have found THE ONE, above ^^

Inspire Navy Sequin Strap Maxi Prom Dress


It's an online exclusive so I best snap it up!

    2. They look lovely - I miss New Look loads since leaving England!

    3. I never thought of New Look and am after a Christmas dress - love the first one.

      1. I should come back and edit this to say how lovely it was. I was amazed at the quality and how lovely it looked on. I got A LOT of compliments and nobody could believe where I got it. The fabric is so so lush! xx
