Get the Look

As I went through in the last post, there are a few places you can try looking for tea-length dresses – you can try the beautiful dresses of Pixie Pocket down in Christchurch, who makes to order.  You could try Bella Vintage for the real deal – she imports vintage dresses from the US.

If you are in a hurry and want a bargain, you could try Unique Vintage in the US, who post internationally – you could find your all your bridal party’s dresses in one place.  They also take returns, which is a great if you are a bit nervous about ordering online.

Start the look with this tea-length red crinoline petticoat:
