I thought I was being very fussy when trying to choose a MOB outfit, but looking at all of the posts on this site, it seems otherss are having the same problems. I am not young but I try and look nice and keep up with fashion in a way that suits my age (I hope). However, when looking in shops for a MOB outfit, they are either really expensive (£700+), or a little old-fashioned. If you want an outfit for the day thats fine with a suit, but then a suit doesn't look great in the evening and I think, as you are hostess ,in a way its a bit rude to go off and change - I think thats the bride's perogative, if she wants to change. So - its finding an outfit that looks great in the church and then one which is good for the evening whne everyone is a bit more relaxed. Monsoon and Coast are great - but don't do many matching jackets with the dresses so hard to get an outfit that looks co-ordinated, especially with shoes, bag and hat. Are there any MOB out there who are having the same problem as me, or am I just going to the wrong shops?. For anyone brave enough, there does seem to be a gap in the market for a shop that caters for all styles - not just the Condici and Frank Usher type outfits.
