VINTAGE WINTER

Winter brides going vintage can not only create a magical wonderland but rock the ages as well.  Did you know Hollywood made use of all those gorgeous capes with hoods through the 1930s-40s?  Think movies like Anna Karenina and Catherine the Great. Friendly furs also play big in vintage winter wear.  Tibetan and Mongolian lamb are super trendy this year as are ostrich and marabou (feathers).  Plus accessories add that vintage look to just about anything--gloves in particular, the longer the better because they really keep the chill of your arms--especially if you're going sleeveless.  So if you love vintage and are a winter bride below you'll find a bit of inspiration to get you going . . . .
