MELBOURNE or PERTH brides to be........
The label says it is a UK 10, so is probably the equivalent of between an 8-10 in Australian size. Measurements are as follow:
Bust: 36 inches Waist: 27 inches Hip: 38 inches
It is not close fitting around the hips, so would be fine if you were a bit smaller or wider around this area.
A silk georgette dress, it has beautiful beaded and diamante detail in two places- a very subtle and thin strip of sparkle on each shoulder, and a wider detailed belt around the waist in a feather pattern. I love that this dress combines an art deco style through its draping and belt, but then gives a modern twist with the statement shoulders.
It's versatile in that it could be worn with a flower chain headband to take it to a more casual look or with a beaded head piece to play up the vintage glamour.
I wore flat sandals and it worked perfectly! Everyone commented about how it was such a beautiful shape and something different to what everyone else wears these days.
I had the bottom hem taken up so that it hit the ground. I am quite tall at 172cm so it still is quite long and there is the slightest train at the back. Very elegant in photos but not too big that it gets in the way when dancing.
It has been dry-cleaned but still has the tinniest speckles of dirt along the bottom of the hem. Nothing that anyone would notice… especially as they will be so mesmerised by the neck line they won't even bother looking at the hem
