Here we have a gold taffeta wedding dress from Mooshki, and I have to say that I rather like it. But I have always been a fan of pick-ups and gathers and that sort of thing on a big poufy skirt, so (the decolletage aside) this is right up my ally. I understand that it’s not everyone’s forte, however. In fact, as I was poking around in the world of wedding blogs just the other day, I stumbled upon so many brides-to-be professing to hate hate hate all the pick-ups and gathers all over wedding dresses these days.
So today’s LOVE/HATE isn’t so much about this wedding dress, but about the aforementioned excess of pick-ups and gathers in today’s bridal fashions. There’s only so much you can do with a pick-up, which is I think why we’re starting to see things like this and this, where one looks like a cake that’s spilled over its pan and the other is just indescribable.
Seriously – what is going on in that dress on the left?
Me first, me first. As much as I love pick-ups and gathers on wedding dresses, I hate the fact that designers are continually searching for new and innovative places to put them. A little pouf? Even a lot of pouf? Fantastic. But maybe it’s time to start thinking about taking it down a notch. Right? Right?
