vintage style, totally modern appeal

Whirling Turban, (the designer of these gorgeous custom wedding gowns) calls them "vintage style", but I really feel that they're totally chic and relevant for right now. Rather than being theme-y, they're simple, glamorous, flattering... everything you would want in an entirely modern wedding gown. I love that you can choose your own fabric to make any of their many silhouettes more or less formal. How elegant is the one on the right in the brocade silk? Wow. And the price? Also wow. Check it out.

THIS is a find. Those designs practically makes me want to cry with all their real-woman flattering goodness.

You could almost justify a whole wardrobe. And the funny looks when you suddenly switch from sweatshirt and paint-stained jeans to vampy shoes + retro sheaths at the corner store.

Now if only I could order a "defined midriff."

Their dresses are gorgeous, especially for those of us with hourglass figures. I nearly had one made to wear on my honeymoon as a dinner dress, but they didn't have any fabric I loved at the time, and since then I've put on a little weight. (Ahem.) I do plan on buying one of their dresses once I get back to my fighting weight. They custom make each dress, then keep your measurements (or a muslin, even) on file so it doesn't cost as much for the next dress.
