Our gorgeous bride, Deirdre chose an elegant, champagne, wedding gown that echoed the style of the 1940's for her recent wedding. She paired it with one of our bespoke, birdcage veils in a perfect shade of nude. We are in love with her whole look!

Red and Pink - Switch It Up You Big Romantic and Wear These Colours Together!

We'll be colour blocking our way into this week! Whether you celebrate Valentines or ignore completely, there's nothing wrong with taking a little timeout to show your love and maybe spend some quality time with your nearest and dearest. 
Personally I'll do something nice with my kids on Valentines and hopefully squeeze in a date-night with the hubby at some stage during the next week or two. It won't be much different to any other week but love is important, essential in fact, so why not spend a little time being grateful for the family, friends and partners that are part of your life.
Just for the heck of it I'll be wearing lots of pink and red! 
Below are some original vintage images and then vintage dresses from Dirty Fabulous in an array of fabulous pink and red tones to inspire!
Have a wonderful week and remember "you are loved!".
