on a rainy day in london…

July 19, 2011

So on a very rainy day in London (so much for a barbeque summer) I headed off to give my ‘expert’ opinion in dress shopping. The first place we visted was Ritva Westenius, a beautiful boutique tucked away on Connaught Street. Her gorgeous dresses have something for everyone from the park avenue princess inspired organza a-line dress to a vintage inspired embellished number. 

It’s quite tricky negotiating the mindfield of dress shopping especially as an observer as you have to strike that balance of offering enough useful opinions beyond just ‘lovely’ and ‘gorgeous’ yet still allowing the bride the time and space to make up their own mind. It’s like the age old question ‘does my bum look big in this?’ but the best advice I’ve had so far is to bear in mind the location, the fabric, the theme of the wedding and whatever makes the bride look like the best version of herself but I’m sure I’ll have many more handy tips to add along the way.
