this is the one that I would float away in...Persuasion...i love this dress...so dreamy...but alas...
I have my dress (see it here) . She's a simple little thing....really plain...nothing really special in all honesty...but she fits me fine. There are things I like about her - the ivory coloring...the soft texture of the silk...and this teeny tiny detail 5 or so inches from the hem that I get a kick out of. I've even grown to appreciate my craziness in her acquisition...despite experiencing pangs of dress regret like so many...this dress and I have been on a journey together already...and I haven't even gotten married yet!
Except, she was missing something.
I was brainstorming ideas of how make her a lil more special. I had been in search for months and months for a belt (or sash or embellishment) and just never really found anything that made me stop breathing.
Except for Elizabeth Dye. Her handmade dresses are so divine I can't help but stalk her blog. If I REALLY had my way, I'd be wearing one of her designs (preferably her Persuasion dress, pictured at the top...dear Lord that's a beauty).
So I thought...why not? Why can't I wear Elizabeth Dye on my wedding day? So I held my breath and emailed her. She emailed me back - which was madness because she is a total celebrity to me...and I jumped up and down. A lot. I jumped up and down a lot.
Turns out, yes, she does take custom orders...and yes...she does make sashes. And. Yes. She is making my sash.
ELIZABETH DYE IS MAKING MY SASH!!
Take a look at her breathtaking 2010 collection. Amazing.
