Audrey Hepburn Inspired Wedding Guest Outfit

Breakfast At Tiffany's inspired wedding guest outfit
I’m not normally one for making outfit collages for posts, but after seeing this gorgeous black and white dress on Phase Eight’s website when I was invited to enter their Blogger Wedding Guest Outfit Competition, I had an Audrey moment and couldn’t resist…! 

Admittedly the dress is a similar style to the one I wore on Christmas Day, but that’s probably why I rather liked it. I also chose it because black and white is the trend for 2013, but decided to soften it with the shell necklace and clutch – I just love those muted colours and textures (plus I thought they made a change from the usual pearls and a satin clutch so often paired with this kind of dress). I’d wear the shrug in the evening for a little warmth – usually needed for a British wedding – and it would also look great with the right kind of maxi dress, so it’d be quite a versatile item.

The prize? A £250 Phase Eight gift card. More than enough to buy a complete wedding outfit, which would be rather wonderful 😉

Come back later today for news of a great new feature on the blog, plus I’ll have a new outfit post tomorrow. Happy Friday everyone!

    Very pretty outfit. I think it is a perfect pick for a wedding guest. And I especially want that shrug. I've had my eye on a vintage fur shrug at a local antique mall that I may just have to buy now because it is very similar in look to yours above.

    So pretty – I love the accessories in palest peach, they are so feminine. xoxoxo
