I love dresses, and this stunning wedding gown by Ralph and Russo Couture caught my eye. How many of us have a favourite memory hanging in a special place in our closet, bought for weddings, anniversaries, first dates, proms, or birthdays? This dress is a story unto itself, requiring 3900 hours of hand embroidery. For the full story, click here. The images of this gown create once again the oohs and aahs we might have felt as small girls dreaming of maybe one day looking like a princess bride.
They say it all starts with the dress, and I think that follows through for our regular day-to-day lives as well. We look for that dress or skirt or leather jacket that will tell a little story about us, about what we like, our preference for hour glass shapes, or for loose fitting linens, chunky jewelry or delicate strands of chains.
I found a few images that are my favourites. What style do you prefer? Do you have a ball gown in the back of your closet?
