You know us we are big brand super stans, but nothing warms our fashion cockles more than seeing independent designer magic. We are lovers, likers, and stalkers of Grace Loves Lace – having featured her super fine wedding design before.
We spied killer photography, visually eloped with some utterly amazing dresses, and nearly short circuited out keyboard with the river of drool that fell from our jaws when we saw the new editions to what is already a wonderful collection. You can see previous Grace Love Lace designs we featured right here… however you can go and get some dress magic at the store. Free spirited, bohemian lushness it’s right up our street and round the corner!
