If you follow Simply Peachy on Facebook, you may have noticed that I have a major thing for Claire Pettibone. I adore everything about her breathtaking collection of gowns which always takes a fair bit of willpower to tear my eyes away from the screen. Her use of intricate antique laces and embroidery always gets me. There’s something about her gowns that embody a kind of femininity that is both girly and whimsical and she most definitely has the ethereal bridal look down pat. The thing that captivates me the most about Claire Pettibone’s gowns are the backs which always feature some jaw-droppingly beautiful details
My current favourite is the ‘Beauty‘ from the Claire Pettibone Spring 2013 Collection. The ivory beaded lace bodice and the unique pink and green jeweled keyhole back is so stunning, there’s no wonder it’s name is ‘Beauty’. This gown emanates such romance that it almost makes me blush and with that, it inspired me to put together an inspiration board around it. So here it is peachies – blush and mint – because you really can’t go wrong with this soft and romantic colour palette.

So tell me peachies, who’s wearing a Claire Pettibone gown on their special day? I’d love to see it! xx
