Recycle your wedding outfit

A reader tweeted to me yesterday asking for some advice on what to wear for a wedding in Glasgow in May. She lives in New York but could potentially buy her outfit here in the UK. She is happy to spend more money on the shoes than the dress, I'm guessing she wants to get more wear out of them after they've worked the dance floor at the reception. So, I've selected transatlantic friendly outfits for both our gals here in Europe, and the ladies across the pond, from global brands Topshop, Anthropologie and Zara. All of these pieces will see you through work, evening drinks or weddings. Lets face it, in this tough economic climate we need a flexible wardrobe.
