Being asked to a wedding is always exciting its usually a time celebrate with the gorgeous couple and catch up with old friends and make new ones and eat until you can’t move.

But what causes me stress is the age old question “What do I wear?”

This can become a very expensive question as I love to wear something new.

Well don’t worry I have found the perfect solution.

As the name suggests Little Party Dress is all about the party. Kel started Little Party Dress for exactly the”What do I wear” question – she provides affordable party dresses for every occasion.

All orders receive FREE domestic shipping – a real bonus for online shopping.

When Kel sent me the Botanics Green Print Dress I knew it would be the perfect dress to wear to the upcoming wedding.

The Botanics Green Print Dress $69.95 has a stunning white/green/black print, its asymmetrical hem really makes it stand out from the crowd – it finishes nicely knee length.

With such bold print I kept my accessories simple – black lace heels and black clutch.

As a mum of 4 children my stomach is not favourite body part – this dress with its super stretchy fit and ruched middle helps to hold in and disguise any lumps and bumps I have in this area,  no spanx needed – words that I love to hear.

And what a stunning back drop – no back fence or garage door for this photo.

Now if a fitted dress is not for you how about one of the 4 beautiful dresses below from Little Party Dress – all well under $100.00




Monochrome perfection – black or white always are a favourite of mine, accessories can be kept neutral with nude accessories or you can go bold and create a statement.

The Stacie Black Lace Dress $64.95 is a real statement with is intricate lace detailing and nude slip, I think this dress exudes class and reminds me very much of Hollywood glamour.

The Gracie White Pinstripe Dress $59.95 with its black and white stripes would be perfect on is own or as the weather gets cooler would look gorgeous with a blazer. The simplicity of this dress would also mean it would be perfect for work as well.


Maxi Dress – I’m always a fan of maxi dresses and wear them often.

The Shannon Light Blue Wrap Dress $69.95 is beautiful – I’ve become obsessed with wrap dresses in all their forms. I think they flatter a women’s figure, emphasizing the chest area and waist and floating over the hips.

The Goodnight Kiss Peach Maxi Dress $74.95 with its sweet heart neckline and wrap around skirt is beautiful. And did I tell you this dress has pockets – totally in love. This dress does have detachable white straps which are easy to add if you prefer a little more support but the dress does have corset style boning in the bodice.

  • What a lovely venue for a wedding! Your outfit looks perfect! I also love the Stacie black lace dress!

    • It was a gorgeous spot and only half an hour from hour, the skies look ominous but the rsin stayed away. Yes I love that black lace dress as well – maybe it will need to end up in my wardrobe soon

  • Karen, you look stunning in this dress! I love the other picks from Little Party Dress too but the one you chose is incredible! Hope you had a wonderful day. Bron x

    • Thanks Bron – we had a wonderful day and what I loved about the dress was I felt comfortable in it all day. No adjusting needed

  • Are you at Sirromet? It looks spookily familiar! Now don’t you just look a dreamboat – perfect frock on you Karen, it enhances your fabulous figure (*ahem* – what tummy?) xxx

    • No Ocean View Estates Mt Mee – it was a stunning location and the food was delicious. Must go back again for lunch. I loved the frock – I tried the spanx underneath and after 30 mins of pain I ripped them off in the car 😨 and it looked so better no lines and I could breathe

  • Oh that peach printed maxi dress, the last one you featured, is so pretty! 🙂 I have a wedding coming up later this year but I’m probably (hopefully?!) going to be wearing a regular dress from my wardrobe, assuming I can fit back into most of it by then….

    I do like the fern print dress on you though – beautiful with the green backdrop for the photos too.

    • The Peach dress has only just come back into stock – its a very popular dress. I’m sure you will fit back into your clothes – you look tiny all baby bump

  • You look very stylish!

  • Love the print. And the location is fab too. 🙂
