Communions, Weddings, Christenings or Birthdays! Occasion wear can be a source of stress for any woman. We want to look our best in front of the Mother-In-Law that always sneaks a dig or that friend who manages to make you feel life would be better wearing a veil and a black bag. We’ve all been there. We all have that event where looking our best is an absolute must. However if the occasion is related to you i.e your child’s communion or you’ve already forked out a fortune before said wedding on hen parties, kitchen parties, accommodation or gifts, there might not be much budget left for kitting yourself out in the latest fashion.
I myself have a communion coming up and not a huge budget to go shopping with. Yes I want that Alice and Olivia dress, no my husband wont sell a kidney to buy it for me. I don’t see WHY he needs two like, he has one to spare! I JOKE, but you know what I mean. Life can be expensive so I’ve put together a few of my top picks that will see you through the upcoming season and all for under £60. Sound good?
Fist stop of the day is to Zara. Now some have critiqued Zara’s offerings lately and their quality but I still find them amazing. I’m not ready to break up with them yet!! Here’s why. They have extremely affordable pieces and are always bang on trend. If you are buying into the hottest trends, it’s ok to not spend a fortune on them. Who knows if they’ll be around next year.
First up we have a really beautiful, blue dress. It is plain enough to create a few different looks by changing up shoes/jewellery/belt and has a lovely cut. Best of all? It’s only £19.95 HERE.
This Heron Print dress is also from Zara and so pretty for spring. Very feminine and I adore the sleeve detail. Its £45.95 HERE
I think this red Bardot dress is very classy and perfect for a summer wedding! It’s €49.95 HERE
New Look can be over looked when it comes to occassion wear but they have some very pretty options at very reasonable prices. I love the detail in this lace off the shoulder dress. It would be perfect for a communion and it’s €59.99 HERE
Asos is like a one stop candy shop when looking for occassion wear. Lots of brands to suit a variety of budgets. How beautiful is this wrap front midi dress from Asos? A reasonable £50.67! Perfect for a summer wedding. Buy HERE.
Keeping with a feminine theme, this Miss Selfridge number is super girlie! You could dress this up or down and a bargain at £46.67 HERE.
This dress looks far more expensive than it’s £50 price tag!! I love. You can buy HERE
Now if only I had the figure to wear this beauty!!! I adore the colour! It is £60 HERE
Finally I have two options from iClothing. This is a relatively new website for me but I’m pleasantly surprised at the variety on offer and at the price points. Thprint on this body con number is gorgeous and a great alternative to a little black dress. It’s £38 HERE
Finally I have a dress that has me written all over it. I love the colour, the print, the style and most importantly, the price! It’s £39.95 HERE
