When I was in Italy at the beginning of July, we kicked off the wedding celebrations with a fun Bachelorette/Hens party for the bride to be! The theme was ‘Sex & the City’ which basically meant a chance to glam up and sparkle! I own this incredibly sparkly dress that I adore but never get a chance to wear because it’s so in your face and when you wear it you pretty much become a walking disco ball. I bought it quite a few years ago of a friend back in Australia for a ball and have only been able to wear it a couple of times since. It is by Australian designer Ruth Tarvydas from her signature collection.
Me and my friend by the waterfront in Cernobbio, the little town at Lake Como where we stayed.
The ‘Metallica’ dress is made of silk with hand sewn metal sequins all over. It has a racer back and a drawstring waist. It’s deliciously special to wear and as you walk the metal sequins jingle! (link)
On my hair I used the Cloud Nine ‘The Wand’ (link) I love the messy curls it produces…but my hair does look slightly frazzled in these photos because on the walk from the hotel to the lakefront we got caught in a massive rain storm!!
In the boat taxi on our way to the party!
The bride to be (left). She had also glammed up for the night but her bridesmaids had a different plan for her and put her in a silly outfit but she still looked amazing :)
For the party us girls headed to the town of Bellagio to a ‘beach bar’ for drinks, food and a good boogie!
At the stunning beach bar overlooking the lake! Unfortunately the weather didn’t cooperate with us that evening because it rained quite a bit but we sure didn’t let that dampen our night of fun!
The bride to be making a toast!
There was plenty of prosecco going round….
It was a really fun girly night out and we danced and partied until the early hours of the morning! x
