The inspiration and process of repurposing vintage wedding dresses and other pretty things to wear!
Ladies, please don’t be pressured by anyone telling you that you can’t wear color on your wedding day! The concept that you have to look pristine and virginal - which isn’t even why white was originally picked - needs to go. Queen Victoria started the trend by using a color that was considered “rich” and “wealthy,” but most women still wore their best dress regardless of color. 
Wear whatever color makes you feel gorgeous and like your best self!

I’m also working on two black and white upcycled vintage wedding dresses… so this inspiration is FABULOUS.

Here’s a handy dandy color reference chart for you artists, writers, or any one else who needs it! Inspired by this post x

This is… wonderful. That is NOT what I thought Taupe was at all, but I’m allowed to be wrong!

Doris, a Redesigned Vintage 1940s Wedding Dress with A Sheer Lace Panel and Rouched Sleeves!

This originally had age spots all over the skirt and sleeves, so I took the bottom from another dress and blended them together to create this dreamy vintage look!
