The Fashion Bug’s Story: Now for the outfits! Packing for a mini-moon or honeymoon is just as important as packing for your wedding weekend. You want to feel special and look your absolute best. So I started buying beautiful dresses, swimsuits and shoes many months ago in preparation for our trip to Italy. When we got to Lake Como and I had unpacked my suitcase, I saw all these beautiful dresses hanging in the closet and realised I was really spoiled for choice. But sure enough every piece got worn. My favourite outfit? The first Self-Portrait dress I wore. Sadly it was so late once we arrived in Lake Como that the sun had already set and the only photo I have of it is the badly lit one here. The good news is that it is a timeless piece (and perfect for travelling as it doesn’t need any ironing) so I am sure I will wear it about 100 more times!
The Fashion Bug’s Tips: Self-Portrait is one of the hottest labels of the moment – the dresses are so delicate and beautiful, and amazingly they are very reasonably priced at around £200-£300 per dress. Perfect for honeymoons (or if you are a guest at a wedding!!) Also make sure to check out label Karina Grimaldi especially for her rompers, and Paloma Blue for easy separates.
