Fifties Silk Starlet Bride

And we're back ....... with a fifties short n' sparky dress worn by an illustration starlet for the new year.

Rut spoke exactly the same language as me when it came to explaining what she wanted in her wedding dress, through the magic of illustration. (Ruts the talented lady behind out measuring guide illustration too!)

I love the way Rut had completely styled her outfit for the day, the look was beautifully fifties clean and looked so cool. This is how to plan and not get overwhelmed with all the options, draw or moodboard it out!
There weren't too many accessories or bits, the deep pink shoes matched the roses (you can't get much better than the classics), the colour pallette or the dark pink, grey and ivory worked perfectly together and the simple birdcage and wrist length gloves finished the look by just adding a nod to bridal without loosing any of the understated glamour.

The dress was designed with a t-shirt style cut to the bodice with the deep V back and our classic signature waistband. This little waistband is much more than just a piece of fabric and holds waist cinching secrets inside. The addition of the pleated silk belt brought texture to the silk and finished the dress.

The skirt in the silk taffeta was full with pockets hidden in the side seams and structured with the charcoal grey tulle underskirt. The dress worn again this summer with a lace jacket and navy belt would make a 'bang on trend' coastal dinner dress too.

Congrats to Rut for looking so well styled and gorgeous on her wedding day in Europe! xxx
