Topshop’s Bridal Collection | The quest for the perfect dress


I don’t know about you, but I, for one, am very disappointed with Richard Nicoll’s Bridal Collection for Topshop which was released last week. It’s all kind of like a series of weird nighties and slips that no one would even wear to bed. (Except for the one in the photo, below. That’s passable.) Topshop, usually so wearable, pretty, and cool, missed the mark here a bit. I suppose getting a wedding dress from Topshop would be too good to be true. And anyway, I am supposed to be boycotting them for using illegal sweatshops in the UK, so it’s probably just as well.

In other wedding dress news, I’ve found mine! The lovely lady behind Tephi is making it for me. You’ll have to wait to see it until October though, in case my fiance stumbles across a blog post about it by accident. My search took me to this hilariously enigmatic door:

The Vintage Wedding Dress Company‘s dresses were absolutely stunning, but way out of my budget. Dizzyingly so. Still, it made for a fun trip.

    Those Richard Nicoll ones are awful! Those dual hems look like such an after thought, they’re more like the sort of thing you’d wear to a festival, how dull. Glad you’ve found yours Soph! xx
