  1. Shades of Lavender, Shades of the Oyster dress, Shades of McQueen...has he really left this realm? Is Sarah Burton his alter ego personified leaving all Magic honed into one?

    THEY are one in the same, even the as she ends the Runway show...attired in jeans and a shirt.

    I thought of you a couple of days ago when I saw this dress...VERY you - the Lavender YOU!

  2. Oh! Swan. I should have known you were there! This dress is everything Lavender should be. I am winding down lavender- just a few more. I did use some of these gorgeous designs in a post with Tennyson's Boudicca earlier in the week.

  9. Oh my - I hadn't seen this one!! Incredible - the details and workmanship!! Even though she'll have to be creating something much safer, I'm curious to see what she does with the wedding dress!

    Q- it is beautiful, no? I particularly love the photograph of the seamstress cutting . Is Sarah Burton THE One? It would be an inspired choice!
