I’m delighted to share these new gowns with you from Karen Willis Holmes today. My favourite? Betsey who takes centre stage in this post. She’s covered in polka dots and we all know that I can’t really ignore anything with such a sweet twist on it! Karen’s classic English is almost a nod back to her English heritage. Her philosophy of classic, vintage style gowns with a modern edge is reflected in her gowns through fluffy, elegantly draped skirts, a nipped in waist or beautiful lace detailing. Beautiful. Elegant. Bliss!

      hI Karen, do you want to sell your wedding dress? I am a size 10 and would love to have Betsy for my wedding this July

        Hi Laura
        It is such a gorgeous dress and I am still so in love with it. I wore it strapless though and buttons instead of the woven ribbon at the back.
        How much would you be willing to pay for it? It is preserved in a box in perfect condition

        Hi Karen, I would be willing to pay around 1800. I’m about 175cm tall. Are you a similar size? Thanks, laura

          Hi Laura,

          Karen replied via email to me- she says she’s 165 and had the hem taken up to just hit the floor so she thinks it might be too short you!
