Project Cinderela – And the winner is…

Hello everyone,

So, my decision is finally made! The winner is…

 

elie-saab-fall-2011-beaded-feather-gown

… this gorgeous dress by Elie Saab! I wish he was designing one just for me but oh well, one can always dream…

What do you think? Wise choice? I love this dress because of its cleavage, and I asked to have the same kind of cleavage in the back (I honestly don’t know how the original dress looks from behind but I have crush for back cleavages…).

I am now waiting to try a model of it and see how it looks. It’s not going to be with the right fabric yet, it’s just to see how it looks on me and take more measurements. Still, can’t wait!

The next step is probably the hardest one: find the right fabric. If you forget the feathers in this dress, the model is quite simple and if I go for a simple fabric, it might be too plain. So the challenge is to find a more elaborated fabric to make the dress stand out… Wish me luck!

I will keep you updated and please, feel free to make suggestions! 🙂

Love,

Mariana

Project Cinderela – Stage 1

Completely in love with haute couture, oh my lord… I’m already feeling sorry for my future self as I’ll spend all my money in just one Elie Saab dress if I have the money!

Here are some of the dresses I’m looking at to pick the model of the dress. I love some but others aren’t that great – bear in mind it has to be simple because it’s a favour! 🙂

And once again, it has been a while since I wrote here. I blame the holidays – family, food, tv, more food – you get the picture.

I’ve started a project recently: my own dress. I’ll have a ball in March at my university and after searching for dresses in various websites, I came to the conclusion they were all very expensive and the ones that weren’t I hated. As my mum works with factories making clothes, I found a way of making my own dress for the ball. I won’t actually make it, but I will have a say in the design without the price of haute couture.

I’ll show you the dresses soon, still getting the hang of bloody photoshop!

Love,

Mariana
