It’s almost an accepted fact on this blog that nobody wants to wear a ‘meringue’ skirt on their wedding day, but the style remains a popular choice nonetheless and if done with flair and a sense of fun, there’s no reason you shouldn’t go for a dress with a puffy skirt if you want to – particularly when the dress in question could cost you next to nothing on Ebay!
This fun and frivolous, full-skirted number by Justin Alexander features a raspberry, sweetheart-shaped bodice encrusted with crystals that contrast deliciously against the ivory tulle of the chapel-trained skirt. It’s a petite UK size 6 – and am I the only one thinking it bears a spooky resemblence to Katie Price’s ‘Barbie dress’? Hmm…best not to dwell too much on that question! This one’s on auction at its start price of 99p. It was bought new at £1200. Auction here.
