CHIC OF THE WEEK

 
Even though I specialize in alternative bridal wear, alternative doesn't rule out brides getting married somewhere palatial and in the most formal sense.  HARMONY from my Bouffant Collection is certainly a treasure for the bride looking for something unencumbered and easy to wear (no long trains to bustle up) yet with all the elegance to pair up against the backdrop of the beautiful Villa Montalvo in Saratoga, California.  Super lightweight, the silk dupioni skirt is a pleated bell shape--the pattern modeled after Grace Kelly's.  The bodice with an asymmetrical neckline is covered in Chantilly lace under shirred tulle. My signature covered button line the back and the dress is lined in silk Habotai to keep it light.  This is a custom order available in silk white or ivory. You can see these pictures and closer detils of the bodice on Etsy.
