Stylewise, the dress was a basic Maggie Sottero that I modified. What were the changes?
- pleats to the bustline (made from curtain fabric)
- corset lace up closure fitted with a zipper and loops left for effect (so much easier to get in and out of!)
- ruching the hips to change an A-line dress to a drop-waist silhouette (and to avoid cutting off such nice sequined, twinkling lace)
- gathering the extra top layer in the back for a perma-bustled fishtail.
And the final result? Tada!

Something old - Marc Jacobs pearl-studded sandals
Something new - diamond studs
Something borrowed - A Gerard Darel Jackie Kennedy pearl necklace (worn singlely). The designer purchased the orginal Jackie O Kennedy double necklace in the 1996 and had since released the iconic style in 5 glass colours. (Spasibo Katya! xo)
Something blue - Either the clutch or the Aegean Sea. Take your pick!
As for the groom.. he wore a suit by Acne, which required barely any tailoring. Etam shirt. Top Shop Man polka dot suspenders. Shoes from Holt Renfrew. And a paisley bowtie endearingly created by his mama.
