Fall 2011 Collection: Lierre Gown

Hey guys.  Lots of big stuff happening today.  I sorta just wanna talk about dresses and weddings and stuff though, is that okay?  I mean, you don’t come here for my take on the political world, you come here for freaking flowers and petticoats and swiss dot, and I am nothing if not accommodating.  So here we go . . . dresses!  I can honestly say I’m pretty looney-tunes crazy about each of the dresses in this collection, but the Lierre gown is the one I imagined gliding around in the most while I was stitching everything together.  It’s so graceful and fluttery and cool.

Lierre means “ivy” in french – aw!  We’ve all talked about our collective obsession with swiss dot, but have you ever before seen it in a column dress?  I have no idea why not, because it WORKS.  So super feminine and also very chic and current – perfect for brides looking for something unexpected and um AWESOME.

And then it’s absolutely covered in the softest, drapiest silk tulle scarves throughout the skirt and with dozens of asymmetrical bows on one shoulder.  Tiny cap sleeves and a v-shaped back just add to the sweetness.  Wouldn’t this gown be perfect for a statuesque bride at her 1930s-style wedding?  Or an indie bride at her adorable brunch reception?  OR on the nature-loving bride while she rides into the sunset on horseback with her new husband?  Dudes, I could do this all day . . .

Check out the full collection here.
