Phase Eight and weddings outfits… two things that go together like Carrie and Big, for me at least. This year I’m attending five weddings and for three out of the five, I will be wearing/have worn a Phase Eight dress.
Up until 2010, Phase Eight was a shop I’d never ventured into. This all changed when I went shopping with my Mum for her ‘mother-of-the-bride’ outfit for my wedding. She chose a dress, jacket, fascinator, jewellery… in fact, her entire outfit down to her shoes came from Phase Eight. Having spent well over an hour ambling around the Bath store selecting items for my Mum to try on, the occasional distraction was almost inevitable. While waiting outside the changing rooms I couldn’t help but pick out a beautiful chiffon floral print dress to try on. Ten minutes later, I’d made my first ever purchase.
