Boho Wedding Guest Style With ThatSaleSite!

Monday 27 April 2015

Who doesn't love a good online sale? The thing is, there are so many of them going at the same time that it's hard to keep track of the best ones unless you're subbed to every store's email (groan), until now. specialises in advertising live sales from a huge number of online retailers, enabling us to search by item type (dresses, shoes, accessories etc) or by retailer to see at a glance the best and newest discounts! 

A few weeks back, ThatSaleSite challenged me to create a summer wedding guest look using their sale-tastic site, and £50. Challenge accepted!

Not being the peplum and fascinator type, and having just read that Vogue had now okayed wearing white to a wedding, I thought I'd have a go at something a little bit different. I already knew that I wanted to buy a white dress, so I chose the 'Dresses' category and ThatSaleSite cut the 400+ sales available to browse to just over 200 sales for me, effectively cutting wasted browsing time in half already. As my budget was £50, I reordered the sales to show the largest reductions first, noting that they started at 80% (errr, yowza!) and set to work. Urban Outfitters, Motel, Anthropologie, Spoiled Brat, Dahlia, ASOS, Whistles, honestly, the list goes on but it didn't take me too long to spy Free People on there at 50% off. Now T and I adore Free People but it has to be said that the prices can sometimes be a little out of reach, so 50% off was bound to be a good time, and I knew they would have a ton of beautiful dresses for me to nose at. I was right. To the outfit! 

Outfit: Cardigan - Wildfox Couture, Dress - Free People c/o ThatSaleSite, Boots - Warehouse, Hairband - Johnny Loves Rosie at ASOS c/o ThatSaleSite, Watch - Daniel Wellington.

The Free People 'Dreaming In The Days' slip dress was £39.95 from £58, and it's just gorgeous. An ivory (so not too white) double tier, sheer (but not too sheer), broderie anglaise with crochet straps and hem. It's the perfect style for a boho county wedding.

I also hit ASOS with my change and bought a Johnny Loves Rosie leather headband (£10 from £18) for to pull the theme together, I then teamed both sale items with my Wildfox Couture Ballroom Cardigan as a cover up and the super cute Warehouse fringed boots. I could totally see this outfit chilling out at a boho countryside wedding, sitting on benches as the bride and groom say their vows and dancing to a cool band outside until the sun goes down on us!

So if Vogue says it's okay, then hey, it's okay right? As long as the bride is cool with it, and you don't go looking to upstage her in a tulle covered ballgown style dress (side-eye), then white is definitely workable. In this case, the style of the dress (short and feminine), combined with the gold cardi and the suede boots, means I am more likely to be mistaken for She-Ra than the groom's wife-to-be. 

Basically, use your head. If it's white and long, or white satin, then I would probably avoid it even if the bride is wearing red. If you're wearing a white dress or a white skirt, perhaps consider a block of colour on a jacket or a pop on your accessories. I would also generally swerve white shoes. And tiara's. And carrying a bouquet ;)

Anyhoo, huge thanks to for bringing us a handy new shopping tool. I've used it several times since this challenge, it broadens your sale horizons and makes your money go further - hurrah!

  3. The dress is gorgeous and goes perfectly with the sequin cardigan - love how you have styled this outfit xx

  4. I agree, I think you can wear white to a wedding as long as you're a bit considerate and don't look too bridal! I think it depends on the bride as well, there are some that will definitely care more than others! This dress is gorgeous, dressy enough for a wedding but not so much so that you can't wear it just for the weekend or whatever too x
