I really love the back of this dress. I’m also a fan of Claire Pettinone’s ‘Olivia’ so there is a bit of a theme emerging. I am unfortunately working on a budget so neither of these beauties are viable options. I’m searching and searching (also looking at some contemporary asian styles as my partner would like that) but thought I’d look for some advice here too.
🙂 So impressed with the gorgeous finds posted on some of these threads.
Lol, it seems like you’re not struggling at ask to pick a style of dress, just one that fits your style and budget! What is your budget? That should help the bees make some suggestions
Very good point! 😀 I’m working in £s so approx £1000. Thanks MeiFrancis!
Have you thought of checking some preowned sites or looking for samples? They are very distinctive looks and I think a lot of the appeal is in the fabrics, styling and embroidery used- which is expensive. I’m a huge Claire Pettibone fan- and the copies just don’t do it for me. They don’t drape as well since the fabrics are not as fine.
@pinkjewel: Hi pinkjewel, Yes have been searching preloved and other used sites. Do you have a recommended one? I’ve not seen Olivia on any of them though! I’m definitely going with some colour I think, gentle soft shades, probably some green in there. The perfect dress has to be out there somewhere! 😀
