Beautiful Things Have a Momentum of their Own…




Some days are made for dancing, and some dresses are made for dancing too. This beautiful design from Australian brand Lover has provided me with plenty of opportunities to twirl away to my heart’s content, with its flared skirt and little capped mesh sleeves.   Lover really do have a wonderful grasp on beauty – their website reads “Beautiful things have a momentum of their own“.

Regular readers may remember that Lover was my designer of choice for my wedding dress last year; and soon-to-be-brides may be interested to know that they recently brought out the third part of their stunning ‘White Magick‘ collection (if you are looking for an alternative to a traditional dress, look no further).

From romantic and ethereal to loud and irreverent, no-one creates dresses quite like Lover do.

And so, here I am wearing my wedding dress, the Rosebud Halter Dress (click HERE to view the same style in black) from Australian brand Lover The Label - a fan of their lace, this was perfect for our modern wedding.  The Rosebud Halter is a backless, fitted dress in a floral French lace with slim satin halter ties and a hemline that comes to a point at front centre and is longer at back.  I received excellent service from Lover’s flagship boutique in Sydney, Australia – if you want to know more about their designs as an international buyer you can email them: - please tell them I sent you their way.

Lydia snapped some more photos for me during my trip back to the US where the wedding was held – did I mention I had two dresses, not one, Blog Reader? Oh well now you know :) – the bride here wore Lover The Label, the dashing groom Tom Ford (I wonder if said husband will let me post some pictures hmmm.)

Lover_TuulaVintageLover The Label are increasingly a favourite brand of mine.  I discovered them through one of my favourite blog reads, Tuula Vintage, who you can often see wearing their collection.  This Australian brand (Jessica Stein of Tuula Vintage is also an Aussie) captivated me with their ‘White Magick’ collection and this beautiful lace mini dress that I bought from Forward by Elyse Walker is quite a lovely alternative to my little black dresses for cocktail hour or summer holiday dining by the sea.  The peachy colour of this Millie Dress always makes me smile and the length, although shorter than I might normally go, seems perfectly fitting for this little number.  I’d very much encourage you, Blog Reader, to check out Lover The Label.  They did an exclusive line for Net-A-Porter not long ago and you can currently purchase the Sphinx Dress, seem above on Jessica Stein, from the site.
