Oh we are revelling in the beauty of it being beautiful blue sky magic going on – and the city is bathed in the gold that Dick Whittington dreamed of. Hello Golden Orb, don’t leave us! So, let’s up the happy with a little journey into wedding fashion land.
The shoes that are setting our little guest hearts on fire this week are these by Vince Camuto – we adore them to the point of near obsession.
Little Dude, in Paul Smith, this is a guest look that it is adorable that we can get down with – Harrison, you can see him at this gorgeous parents wedding on Love My Dress (We really like Harrison’s plus one).
The photographic glory goes to: Juliet Mckee
It’s all about Wings…
No, not the Paul McCartney Wings… nor Maxwell’s Pretty Wings, or even chicken wings. We need to put this song in it still cracks us up!
But, wings for the eyes so that you can stay fly. We love this tutorial from Selina Lundstrum
Let’s twist again like we did like summer… except we are going to do with hair instead! We have this two tutorials. Do the twist with European hair
Do the twist with Afro hair.
In the interest of being matchy – a two tone outfit demands two tone nails, and we’ve got a lovely two tone nail tutorial from Tot Ma
It’s Best of the Guest time once more and it is time for you footloose and fancy free guests to find some inspiration for big day fashion!
The sun is shining, bits of flesh that have been cursed by the blight of the deep, miserable, and dark English winter are on display… it WAS payday, so what could be happier than that? A never ending cake, nail polish that doesn’t chip, and concierge delivered McDonald’s breakfast every day? We can but dream right?
So, Tuesday means that it is hot new shoe day and the love of our life this week are this super fine pair by Charlotte Olympia. They aren’t just brogues darling, they are brogues with a touch of heart!
You got to love it when everybody jumps! See the wedding of Erik & Brooke on Rock n’ Roll Bride
We may have died and gone to flouncy dress heaven we found a lovely little shop called Little Black Dress. But , since we wanted (and needed) a big fat dose of flower power – we picked this little number. The Arima Cocktail Maxi Dress from Aftershock
The photographic glory goes to: Solmaz Saberi Photography

So, far so good – we are keeping up with our vow. You see if you checked on the first person post yesterday you will see that it is a sensibly creative new beginning of sorts with lots of fab things coming your way.
However , today we are about the face and the guest face at that! So this week is all about the nuddy nudism and we have the wardrobe, make up and whole enchilada with a little sour cream and guacamole on the side for you!
So here’s to shoes… technically these aren’t nude – they are a blushing rose! A bit of a bling thing plus a safe chunky heel, we get the feeling these will get you through any wedding dance-a-thon!
An absolutely epic wedding – we lost our teeny tiny creative minds over the desert tables but this wedding had some of the most stylish guests ever, is that lime green dress an Aqua by Aqua number – our spidey senses tell us that it might be! See the incredible wedding of Amanda and Tim over on 100 Layer Cake.
Our dress crush of the moment is the super tasty Three Floor a new label is future forward and edgy fashion magic. Perfect the guest who not only wants to cut a dash and stand out. Our personal favourite is the Motion Midi Dress, which is crepe sensational.
We love a nice simple nude make up look – way to trick people that you have runway flawless skin. So, we’ve got how to do a nude lip for medium to dark skin from Beauty by JJ
And for Caucasian skin check out this from Beauty Crush
Upside down you turn me – we like hair up but this is a topsy-turvy one with an upside down French braid bun from your tress tutors for the day; Luxy Hair
So, the bride may be wearing some Tiffany box ring magic, but you can have your own bit of Tiffany with this Tiffany nail tutorial courtesy of Elle & Dish
We missed the golden opportunity to go to the Prom, however we’ve always lived vicariously through 80’s and 90’s teen movies, and hoped that we would get to dance in some crazy formation/choreography/flashdance a la She’s all that regardez… this is the kind of co-ordination we wished we could indulge in.
Howevs, since prom is not an option – but the idea of having an adult prom a la SATC, (we’d so want to be Prom Queen!) but in lieu of that just turn up at a wedding ensconced in these lovelies from the Prom Range at Topshop and you’ll be in for a fashion win! These are a few of our faves!
Make this a full on day job skive by watching the Topshop mini movie right here and right now… ‘Smells like Teen Spirit’
Oh, so you’ve got a yearning from Cobain and Co…. sure you can have some Nirvana (other than the dress Nirvana too!)
