More Wedding Bells this weekend! This time it was my lovely friends Gwen and Frank who tied the knot- and I couldn't be happier for the two. They had a really nice gathering in a Banquet Room overlooking the Wilmington Riverfront. Boy, was it hot that day. About 95 degrees, and probably couldn't be more humid- but it was plenty cool inside- and we had a great time celebrating the occasion!
I was SO happy I received this dress in time for the weekend. This incredible dress is part of Caitlin Shearer's hand-drawn collection of illustration dresses. As an aspiring dress designer myself- I have adored Caitlin's dresses from afar for quite some time now. I finally decided it was time to save my pennies and invest in my own piece of her wearable art. I instantly fell in love with this delicate print of ice cream cones and sundaes- could it get any cuter?
Outfit Details: Dress: Caitlin Shearer, Necklace: Clothes in the Past Lane, Headband: Claire's, Shoes: Forever 21, Clutch: Vintage
I kept the look pastel and paired the dress with my favorite vintage clutch- a rainbow of pastels! My rhinestone necklace from Clothes in the Past Lane was just the right detail to set off the blue and green tones in the dress and really make it "pop". The vintage inspired silhouette of this dress is my favorite. The shape is so easy to wear, figure flattering and comfortable.
My hubby Daniel wore one of his Nicole Rae Styer embellished button-ups and a vintage tie we thrifted a while back. I love how he puts things together :).
We had a lazy day the rest of Saturday after the wedding and just relaxed, made dinner and watched some Netflix. Sunday was a great day of browsing in West Chester, we found a few fun vintage pins and earrings and a $16 vintage dress that I'll be working on hemming later today. This week I will be focusing my attention back on my own sewing projects. Getting my moth fabric ready for it's first dress pattern, and hopefully an actual dress will be finished within a few weeks. I still have a lot of work to do- but I am inching closer and closer to my dream becoming reality! Thanks for reading :)
