It feels strange actually writing, because it has literally been almost a month since I have written a blog post. Well, the time away was for good reason, we have been busy servicing clients, and producing beautiful dresses. We have 2 amazing new dresses to showcase here, but today we will highlight the short white lace dress, that have until now only resided in my imagination. This dress is truly special for many reasons, the first being that this is the first dress we have designed in true white. All our previous lace dresses were only done in ivory, ‘old-lace, black, blue, and yellow. At first we felt white was too traditional, but we also felt that because our dresses were all non-traditional/unconventional wedding choices, then it was perfectly fine offering them all in white. ALL of our lace dresses are now available in white, and we have sold many already in the white, so this was clearly a wise decision.
OK….so let me get to the topic of the day, the short white lace dress, that have me dreaming and thinking where can I wear it to. In the white color, it may be more suitable for a bride, on her wedding day, or as a reception, or rehearsal dinner dress. I jokingly told my husband, maybe we will be invited to an-all-white party and I could wear this. I haven’t been invited to one of those in years, so realistically I don’t see this happening soon. This dress is also offered in ivory and black. Now this in the black lace, I will have plenty of occasions to wear it to.
This dreamy and ethereal lace dress will drift your heart away, with its playful and whimsical feeling, and the unconventional white tulle overlay at the skirt. Rather than taking a layer of tulle and just layering a layer over the skirt, we decided to do something more complicated and unique, instead we placed it only over parts of the skirt. We tried to capture photos to show this detail. The sides of the skirt are tulle-less. Further, the tulle is gathered more in the front to continue the unconventional look we were aiming for. I’d say mission accomplished on this detail!
The dress itself features a single inner layer of tulle to give it a gorgeous fullness, but this single layer still lacked the voluminous 50s princess look I dreamt of, so we added a petticoat to the dress. The petticoat itself is not attached to the dress, but comes with the dress. This is great because you can wear the dress with or without, depending on the look you are going for.
As in all of our lace dresses, the hem is scalloped, as is the neckline and sleeve. This detail emphasizes the gorgeous nature of this lace, and this lace is truly breathtaking. It is hard to capture in photos, but take my word for it, this lace is unlike any other lace you have seen, unless, of course, you have purchased a designer lace guipure dress.
I would love to hear what you think. Would you wear our new short white lace dress for your big day? Also, where else would you don this amazing crochet lace dress?
