Too much? No! Claire Pettibone Bridal Collection ‘An Earthly Paradise’

February 7, 2013

Hi wonderful people! Hope you are all alive, kicking and doing a better job getting out of bed than I am. Yes, I am still in bed which is pretty unlike me but it’s so cold outside and my bed is SO toasty! Ahhh…. The only thing is, I’ve got to got to get ready for work at some point. The colder it gets the more I want to stay indoors, am I the only one? And besides the cold, my new wisdom tooth hurts! On the bright side, it could be so much worse. I’m hoping the wisdom tooth brings some wisdom with it.

Lets start the day with some loveliness shall we?

When I first saw Claire Pettibone’s bridal wear, I melted just a little bit. The fabric,the design, it’s all very atmospheric. I have to admit I was late on this bandwagon. Pettibone became an even bigger deal when a familiar face on the bloggersphere got married in one of her gowns.

I know a lot of my friends think the detail is too fussy. Regardless, of this no one could deny how elegant Pettibone brides are. Stay with me, there is a point to this long winded typing. A lot of people are unnecessarily put off intricate gowns by runway pictures and photo shoots. Fashion designers have a creative licence to build up a feeling or theme. Just remember that you are only taking away the dress, not the background, headdress or tiara.


Styling around a bridal collection is suggestive not definitive.  A beautiful dress is a beautiful dress. The rest is up to you. At this moment brides all over the world are seeking out dresses for the busy summer wedding period. Give yourself plenty of options and try on EVERYTHING.   I once worked in a jewellers. It would be impossible to count the amount of times women walked out of the shop with things they swore they would hate. The moral of the story is don’t always trust your first response.
