Lace! Few design elements are as dramatic as a gown made entirely of lace. There was a time when only the most feminine of ladies chose lace as the focal point of her dress. Not anymore. Times have changed and for the better. With Fern by La Perle by Calla Blanche anything is possible.
She begins with absolutely stunning ivory lace. The intricate details of this fabric serve a dual purpose. Your guests will see this dress and think it is very delicate. Brava! Perception is everything. Only top-notch craftsmanship like this can make fabric this substantial look wispy and light. She delivers that look but leaves no doubt for you, the bride, that she is up for anything you have planned for your Special Day.
She has a fit and flare, sheath silhouette with a high center slit. Remember how we said she is up for anything? Have you always dreamed of wearing boots under your dress? Here is your chance! A boot to the knee or even beyond, perhaps to your thigh, would look amazing. Or you could stay more traditional with your shoes or even choose to go barefoot. Just keep in mind that the slit is a showcase for your legs and will certainly provide an ooh moment.
She has gorgeous long sleeves with some added shape at the end that lays gently on your hand. Her neckline plunges into a narrow “V” design with fun lace details that create a peek-a-boo effect. Her back has a more rounded “U” shape that shows some skin from behind. Her bodice can be unlined or have a matte lining with either an ivory or a nude skin illusion. She finishes with a train that is just right in terms of length. Every design element here adds up to an unforgettable image.
Once again, weather should play very little part in deciding whether this is the dress for you. Fern by La Perle by Calla Blanche would work for any environment, any body type or stature, any hair length or any activities you have planned. This is the “do everything” gown and the vision of you in it will be sure to leave a lasting impression.
