My Summer Wedding Outfit

My Summer Wedding Outfit I got some photos back from my sister’s wedding in August and so thought I’d show you what I wore, specifically the Catherine Malandrino dress that I bought way back in May. Unbelievably, they still have them on The Outnet reduced from £380 to £152. I’m considering going back for a black version simply because the dress is so comfortable yet chic! It’s knitted with a nude-coloured full lining and the back has a sexy little cut-out. You can still just about wear a bra so long as the back of the bra doesn’t sit too low.

PS: it looks as though I have a little pot-belly going on, but I think it was the way the camera caught me. Honest guv. Other items shown in picture: Idina nude heels (I reviewed them here) which are my absolute favourite ever shoes; a brilliant jacket from Zara which is screwed up in my hand (!) and a little handbag from Gucci that I bought back in 2003 and have used about three times. Hair is by Aveda – what a beautiful job they did! Aveda Institute had its tenth birthday last week, by the way, a great bash with free manicures and lots of men banging big drums. That’s where I got my OPI Over-the-Taupe nails done – they’re still going strong, haven’t even chipped!

Catherine Malandrino Pointelle-Knit Dress, £152 from The Outnet here: MALANDRINO DRESS


  1. Yes,you look amazing but I don’think the dress really worths the money…There are thousand of cheaper prettier dresses at Forever21 for example !!!But that’s just my opinion. :)

  2. For some reason I don’t like this dress much on you but maybe it’s like you said: that it was the way the camera caught you ;)
    You always are looking so good Ruth !!!!!! I wish to have you figure !!!!!!!

  3. Yup, it’s a classic xx

  4. Ruth, I love this dress! I have a back view of it somewhere. By the way I really love your Liv photos! Love your hair! Very classy! Love the outfits and very tempted by the Feckenham dress but I am not sure how clingy it is and whether it is thin and so shows all undergarments. That is why the wedding frock was good as it was very discreet!You look so lovely on the photos and I had forgotten completely how lovely you are! Well done babe!xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx Your Mum

  5. I adore this dress and would absolutely love one, though not sure that I could justify purchasing at this time of year. Hmmm… just remembered I’ll be spending Christmas somewhere warm… *sits on hands*

    • Ha! It’s a general hit with you all then? Is that a thumbs up for purchasing the black version too or should I sit pretty with the navy? x

  6. Hi Ruth
    Love the dress – can we please see the zara jacket too?

  7. This dress is so, so beautiful! I’ve always thought navy more chic than black.

  8. A good quality black pointelle is a wardrobe basic must. You definitely should get the black! xx

  9. Aren’t there always hats involved in English weddings? Does that make me a silly american?

    • @Rachel there ARE often hats involved, but it’s not mandatory! I have never worn one personally, I would no doubt choose something hideously pricey but then sit on it/ lose it/ pour red wine onto it! xx
