Sometimes clothes can surprise you. These wedding dresses from J. Crew certainly surprised me!
Ruffled tiers a hit? I didn’t think I’d like this wedding dress at all when I first laid eyes upon it, but it’s grown on me in a big way. While it’s definitely not for every bride — I would look like a lingerie sachet in it — I can see it looking absolutely smashing and sophisticated on the right bride. The soft color is lovely, and the dress itself is a bit hippie-ish without being overwhelmingly crunchy.
But this… let’s just say I had high hopes for this silk wedding gown when I recently saw it in the pages of a magazine. From far away, the neckline of feathery pleated chiffon looks so pretty. As you get closer to it, however, it gets a little too Pocahontas-ish for my tastes. Fringe has it’s place in the world, but I’m pretty sure that place should be nowhere near a wedding gown.
