LOVE/HATE: Etherially Etherial

Different brides want different looks. They have different styles. This gown is by Jill Stuart, a designer whose work is available, alas, mostly in Asia. I say alas, because I find I’m oddly taken with it.

Believe it or not, I’m not a fuss and feathers kind of gal, for the most part. But I do have a Boho heart and a fondness for ballerinas that transcends the fact I don’t actually care at all for the ballet. In short, I’m a mass of contradictions.

And while I definitely get that this gown isn’t for everyone, I have to go with love. Yes, the crumb catcher ruffles make her look a little like a Christmas cracker, but in a good way, I think. I love the soft coloring and feminine lines. About the only thing I would change is to take off those twee little gloves. The whole thing gives off a confectionary vibe dear to my baking-obsessed soul.

So yeah, love here. What about you?

    This is a tough one, she looks a bit like a feather duster, but I do like the top. Perhaps this would look better with different bottom on the dress? I totally agree with you about those gloves! Since this is love/hate, then I’d have to go with hate, even though I can see some potential with this one.

    I love it, but it definitely needs to be styled better to avoid looking like a Quinceanera dress. I’d go with pulled-back hair, and less twee on the accessories (i.e., ditch the Alice band and gloves).

  3. I agree that the top is the best bit. The bottom’s got to be a hate though!
