Brides and their maids can choose from a range of designer treats. Including this Vivienne Westwood Lily gown (a la Carrie Bradshaw).
There are inspirations for bridesmaids, mother of the bride, guests. The accessories are suggested for you so it’s a one stop shop to look absolutely fabulous at the wedding. There’s even a honeymoon and lingerie section for something a little more special.
There’s no frumpy frocks at Net A Porter- it’s all style and glamour and definitely worth a look! Check it out on their website.
TV weddings are always a bit of fun. I especially like Australian TV weddings as they showcase some of the great designers we have in Australia in a great way. When Sally almost wed Brad, her bridesmaids wore Fleur Wood and Manning Cartell, when Amanda wed Peter (also on Home & Away) she wore a slim line Pallas gown. when Stevie wed Alex on Mcleod’s Daughters, she kicked up her heels in cowboy boots and her bridesmaids wore Tea Rose.
“They are all so nice for any occasion but I would love the Elizabeth Pearl Bracelet for my wedding!
Marilyn Monroe sang “Diamonds are a Girls Best Friend” because she knew diamonds could never cheat, lie or upset anyone. And they always look nice on or off, and help you get compliments!
While Men chose dogs, Women chose rocks!”
Depression glass is highly collectible for its translucent beauty and many uses. It was manufactured during the 1920’s to 1950’s in the USA and comes in many colours including amber, burgundy, blue and the by far the most popular – peachy pink and green. Not all glass made during the Depression was known as Depression glass. Some was known as Elegant glass.
In the USA the glass was obtained by buying soap powder and the manufacturer throwing in a free piece of glass, or movie nights where for a nickel patrons could buy a piece of glassware. After the Depression this glass was no longer valued and was discarded by many families.
Today Depression glass is found in flea markets and antique stores and is highly prized for the clear colours, patterns and even its utilitarian nature. Available in everything from butter dishes and lemon squeezers to dishes and lamps each piece if prized for its history and intrinsic beauty.
