This palm leaf detail lace overlay dress is so unique. I bought it from a high end wedding store in the West End, London. I'd found a photo online and was over the moon to find it as it was so so hard to unearth one in the UK. Felt like a detective hunting it down! It's by a Romanian designer who were so friendly and rare in the UK so you're unlikely to see another bride with beautiful Alma.
I couldn't lose enough weight to wear it for my wedding day heartbreakingly! Massive fail! I wore it when purchased in the shop and twice at dress fittings. I'm hoping to be matchmaker with someone who looked as hard as I did for a rare find!
Season and style:
This dress is super flexible as the long sleeves mean you wouldn't be left cold in winter. But its floaty, dreamy, botanical vibe speaks of the summer. The palm pattern is so on point trend wise. Perfect to match decor and accessories to.
Details and sizing:
There are press stud buttons for the neck collar, and three beautiful little buttons at the waist, above an invisible zip. It's super flattering. Size wise I'd say it is a small to mid range 12 and I was top end. I think it would be easy to take in, but have to warn you after my experience that it's not so easy to let out!
The bare back is perfectly placed as it cuts away at a point that doesn't show any potential back fat when turning and twisting. Totally suitable for dancing!
I'm about 5 foot 5.5 inches tall. Currently it just sits on the floor when I wore high heels. If you're taller than me but more than an inch and a half I think you'd need to wear mid heels and beyond that, kittens or flats.
Underwear wise, it's surprisngly supportive. But if you're low hanging (!) or used to a bra, either a flesh bra with back strap connected to high waist knickers, or ideally stick on front cups or stitched in cups. I didn't get that point of refinement! The high waist measures as listed above, but is stretchy so don't worry if you're bigger!
The designer sent me some off cuts of the lace for me to wrap my bouquet in and have matching shoes and bag made from. It could also be utilised for alterations to make bigger/longer I reckon. It would be my pleasure to include.
Trying on and questions:
I'd love to send you any other photos you'd like to see and answer any questions. Happy to send videos of it in motion. I live in North London and work in the West End so am very flexible for you to meet me or for me to come to you. I don't want you to miss out on the traditions of trying on your dream dress, which I have a feeling this will be for many! ... so please do bring mum/bridesmaid/best man... whoever! And if you want to buy, I'll treat you to a glass of bubbles to celebrate!
Best of luck with your search!
The dress got taken up a little too much for me first time, then was let down again. Net result is that it's shorter than when I brought it the shop when it was supermodel height length!
