Forever Amber in Essentials magazine

essentials magazine

This weekend I was really excited to get a tweet from the lovely Catherine at Not Dressed as Lamb, letting me know we’d both been featured in the July issue of Essentials magazine, in a feature about wedding guest style. I WAS going to rush out and buy it, but, well, I’m lazy, and I was still in bed at the time, so I downloaded the digital version instead, and instantly opened up a whole new world of possibility re: magazine reading. I actually hardly ever buy magazines these days (see: lazy), but I think I might download a few to read on the flight to Miami later this month, so if you have any favourites, feel free to tell me about them!

Anyway, I’m pictured wearing the outfit I wore to my friends’ wedding, which I’ve just realised was a year ago this week: how time flies! The long story of how I came to acquire that dress can be found here: now I just need someone else to get married, so I can have an excuse to wear it again. Anyone want to invite me to their wedding? Anyone? Hey, where’d everyone go?

    hehe Having a chance to dress up is one of the reasons I love weddings! Your dress is gorgeous! And congrats to both of you for being featured in a magazine!

    I don’t go to nearly enough weddings, I’d like one to attend each weekend please! But, coincidentally, I just attended one on Sunday, and I also whipped out the 50s guns: a very bright Hell Bunny dress with a massive bright pink tulle petticoat underneath and a pair of glittery Lady Dragons. Now why can’t I go around dressed like that EVERY day? :)

      I have 4 weddings to go to this year but American weddings aren’t nearly as fun, fashion-wise.
      The link from the Trashy Diva website is how I found your blog(s) to begin with!

    I definitely love a good wedding to dress up for. I wish Americans dressed up more for events.

    A great magazine to flip through is Real Simple. It is one of my favorites to read a few pages here and there. It is all about making life more enjoyable by making it less complicated. Simple organization tips, smart beauty buys (not that you need and help there), decorating, fashion, recipes. It deals with many topics. Just an overall good read.
