Baby Got Back: Conti Wedding Part I

 

Twinseperable-baby-got-back-front-full

Always a sucker for sentimentality, I decided to design and make our gowns for our cousin’s recent wedding in Ojai, CA. I definitely bit off more than I could chew, but finished them just in time! The back is an incredibly sexy and underrated part of a woman’s body, so both dresses were (tastefully) backless*. Since the dresses themselves were designed very differently, I wanted to make sure they were the same color. I do tend to brighten up my wardrobe during the warmer seasons, but I will NEVER swear off darks completely. Loving navy for spring and summer, especially for an outdoor venue, I decided to make the gowns solid navy with different embellishments and details.

Gaby’s gown (right) was inspired by the Miu Miu dress Sienna Miller wore at the Golden Globes, and made of silk satin. My dress (left) was based off of a gown I made for my senior thesis. For this version I used cupro- a sustainable fiber created from viscose. A fantastic sustainable designer (Carrie Parry) based out of Brooklyn re-located to California and was kind enough to sell me her leftover roll! H&M must have gotten the memo since they produced an incredibly similar gown as part of their H&M Conscious collection. See different navy gowns by Eliza J, ML Monique Lhuillier, Halston Heritage, and Marchesa Notte.

The necklaces are two separate pieces from a Bauble Bar sample sale; I believe the “Happy” necklace was inspired by the iconic Lanvan necklaces. The bracelets are vintage from my mother. In keeping with the navy/gold theme, the nails are OPI: OY-Another Polish Joke! (that’s actually the name).

* Tip- If you are wearing a backless dress, make sure to take off your bra at least an hour and a half before so as to avoid skin indentations or red marks.

Commet with your fave!
