THE PARASOL

Did you know even before Marie Antoinette, the parasol was considered a necessity in every woman's wardrobe to ward off the sun. By the mid-1800s when they hit their zenith in the Western World, it was at least known then sun prematurely ages skin. A century later we have scientific proof exposure not only ages but can cause melanoma. So our grandmothers had the right idea flaunting beautiful accessories (before sunscreen). And so evolved the parasol; at it's most chic it can be an art form full of intricate treatments and applications just like hats, veils, purses and shoes.

That was really gorgeous! It was very lovely gowns, as well as how it is projected on photographs. The vintage design of the gown seems very lovely and the details were very elegant! It was one of my favorite gown and would love to wear one of those on my future wedding.

Cheers!
