Mail Bag... a little belated



If you've stopped by a couple of times today you'll notice that I'm unloading several posts that I have been too busy to get around to. In my attempt at cleaning house around here- I've uncovered a reader question that was unintentionally overlooked. A while back, I posted on long-sleeve wedding gowns worn by the lovely Jackie O (hers was not for a wedding, but was so very bridal worthy)... and was asked where to find a modern alternative....

I enjoy the work of Stuart Parvin. His simplistic silhouettes and sleeves are so very remnicent of the gowns in question, while his larger-than life single appliques keep the gown modern and NOW.

What a great find! I am getting married next fall and was looking
for a long sleeve dress that still looked modern and fresh.
Thanks!

I miss sleeves on gowns. These ae so refreshing since every client I worked with this summer was strapless. Very beautiful!

Instead of searching vintage shops for that perfect wedding dress, try asking some of the ladies around church if they still have their wedding dresses around. I'll bet some do, and you may find the perfect gown in somebody's attic.

I love this gown. Where could I find this dress to try on or even purchase?
