Ethereal Glamour - The Fantasy of Day Dreaming

I remember the first time we saw the 1935 classic "A Midsummer's Night Dream" with Olivia De Havilland and Dick Powell, I was left completely intrigued by the ethereal fantasy in art and costuming for the film.

Of all the set decorations and costuming created for this story, for us, this particular film, epitomized the enchanting fantasy of sequins, lighting and the enigma of black and white cinematography.

There is a sort of shimmering delicacy, swathed in tulle and sheer iridescence, glimmering in lights and dainty romantic nuances - Ethereal fantasy has a distinct kind of glamour all of its own.

Dreamy and ambrosial, with misty ideas of far-away tales, such images conjure up bemused fantasies and inspire the creative. For me, collecting snippets of ideas, images and photographing my take of this 'daydreaming' luminescence aids in our own interpretation of fantasy story telling.

I believe those pretty fantasies should come out in a practical way - which is why our creative work references our own take of this ethereal glamour.

Romantic Vintage Inspired Fashion

When we were little girls, we were taught that both Classic and Romantic style clothing could always be added to a  wardrobe, and that these styles never went out of fashion.

When designing our range of clothing and accessories, we take that very same premise.  Each piece we design is artfully hand crafted and made with the thought of becoming heirloom items.

Our Romantic Vintage Collection is our most dreamy, feminine and ethereal line.  We derive inspiration from everything that is delicate and evokes a keepsake quality.

We dream up fanciful ideas and design while in very contemplative and imaginative moods.  Inspired by dainty pink ballet slippers, feminine Southern Belles, pretty little  cameos, beautiful rose blossoms and a lot of delicate lace!

Beautiful soft tones and a color palette of soft pastels is then infused in these designs.  That delicate quality helps create a morning glow and story book ambiance.  Vintage inspired clothing, blouses and skirts can then be mixed and matched to create a romantic style.

July Jubilee!

One the many fun ways to enjoy the summer months, is having ideal weather to wear gorgeous clothes!

Soft, diaphaneous lines and silky gossamer textures are all beautiful for the warmer seasons.  Additionally, with so many wedding receptions, garden parties and festivities to enjoy during the spring and summer months, finding reasons to Glam up is so much easier!!

We love romantic and vintage inspired clothes, we love them so much we design them and the accessories to go with them!  Besides loving to hand make each piece we offer, we design pieces that we would want to wear, in fact that is how it all started.

We are inspired by 1920's vintage romantic fashion. We also love all of the beautiful embellishment on Victorian and Belle Epoque couture.  When we started designing and wearing our work out, other people would stop us, wanting to know where we got our clothing and jewelry.  We have met so many amazing people who were otherwise strangers, just because they stopped us on the streets! Now we hand make and design unique garments and jewelry for friends and our dear customers alike!  We offer some of our pieces on etsy and enjoy connecting with so many beautiful and interesting women from all over the world!
