MIce Advice: Black Tie Wedding

More Mice Advice!  The Mice are on fire this week!  After helping Ellie track down a fab new home for her iPad, we're back and helping another 3BM blog bud, this time the bud's Renae and the conundrum is the perfect black tie wedding outfit...


@3badmice Help me find a dress for a black tie wedding of the year must be long and some killer heels to match!


Mice to the rescue!  We've come up with a list of our top floor sweeping dresses and sky-scraper heels, add a pretty clutch and a box of confetti and you're black tie wedding ready...


Outnet really comes into its own for black tie dress shopping.  The outlet site always has a wealth of gorgeous dresses at incredible discounts and black tie styles tend to be less trend lead and more classic so no danger of looking so last season.  Stock changes regularly so if there's nothing that you love right now make sure that you check back frequently.  Here are some of our current favourites...  

Mikael Aghal Embellished Jersey Maxi Dress - £150 (originally £375)

Coast is a great option for black tie dress hunting with a fantastic range of occasion dress options.  We love this floaty, semi-sheer, grape maxi.

Whistles Lidia Jersey Maxi - £200 (was £250)
Whistles has some beautiful maxis this season.  We adore the Filippa K Coral Photo Dress and we loved this Lidia maxi before but we love it even more now that Whistles have slashed its price to £200 in their sumer sale... Pair it with a bright pashmina and clutch during the wedding and then slink around the dancefloor when the lights go down.

Mango also has some killer options this season.  We love this Grecian embellished gown in a mouthwatering coral.

Now the shoes....With one of these full length dresses we'd suggest that sky high sandals are the best option.  Book in for a pedicure the day before to ensure you're perfectly groomed from head to toe.

If you've Spent all your cash on the dress then we recommend heading straight to Zara for ridiculously affordable but beautiful shoes.
