I was just having lunch with some family friends and we were discussing my best friend’s wedding (her hen was last night so yes I am feeling a little bit jaded). We were talking about page boy outfits and bridesmaid dresses, I’m going to be a bridesmaid and I am wondering what little winkle will wear. I know there’s Monsoon, and other high street shops but there is also a whole host of fantastic sites out there that offer pretty dresses which are great value for money – the problem is knowing where to find them. So an email from Perfume River telling me about their sale couldn’t have been more timely.
What do we think? Sweet aren’t they? and they start from £20 in the sale – you don’t need to spend exorbitant amounts of cash to make your little bridesmaids feel like princesses! The site is easy to navigate and there are lots of clear photos so that you can see the dresses both on little girls and on the peg. So for those of you wanting to snap up a bargain check out Perfume River. Perfume River has a lovely story too, its named after a very famous river in Vietnam, which runs through the imperial city of Hue – Ha the owner was born there and spent her childhood there, until they fleed the country during the war.
I am always so impressed by people that take the plunge and follow their dream, which is why I like to support one off designers like this on LMW. And I’ll leave you with a little quote from Ha
“The stress of work and raising a young family drove me to strike out on my own. I wanted more control of my time to enjoy the children. Perfume River is the third best thing (1st my girls and 2nd my husband!) that has ever happened to me. Running a business is like an evolving beast, you get to tick lots of boxes as you go along, which I love to do.”
