Lynne McCrossan: Onesies aren’t right for weddings

YOU may never be able to reinvent the wheel, but you could have a good old go at redesigning it.

While popping in for an overdue catch-up with my designer bud Carolyn Baxter, we had one thing on our minds – weddings.

Having just been proposed to, the prospect of picking her own wedding dress has left her head hurting, after all, she does design formal gowns for a living.

Couple that with putting a brand new beauty bar underneath her shop and studio, there isn’t much time left for dress scouting.

That was until I saw something I had to show her.

Having being instrumental in helping me with my “I do” frock, it felt only right to repay the favour, and I had to think outside the box.

Thankfully, J.Crew had done it for me, last week revealing an all-in-one lace jumpsuit fit for every edgy fashionista.

Breaking the news to the queen of dresses was a little daunting, but I knew I had a good shout considering this would be the last thing people would expect her to wear.

Conceding my case she then promptly corrected me, stating she simply could not saunter down the aisle wearing a onesie – albeit a beautiful one – but a onesie none the less.

Fair enough.

It’s back to the drawing board.
