While at the Fantasay Faire this weekend  I saw a notice that Rfyre has a 100L sale back at the store. I had not been there for a long time so decided to go there later. So, off I went and found that Raven Pennyfeather of Rfyre has started a line of high fashion clothing called RP Couture. What really stunned me, though, was this dress – a near perfect replica of my mother’s wedding dress. Only with close examination could I find differences such as my mother’s gloves did not have ruffles at the top and the sculpted shoulders on her dress were rounder. It threw me for a loop but also into a really hunt to find the other elements needed to recreate her look that long ago 20th of June when she married my father.

My mom wore white shoes with silk roses with a small crystal center of the rose. The roses in these Baiastice Roses shoes are slightly larger and stand out more, but they are incredibly similar. The gown features layers and layers of sheer organza and silk charmeuse falling just below the knee – the perfect length for an outdoor afternoon wedding in June.

The embroidered taffeta bodice, the sheer gathered sleeves and draped scarf are amazingly similar. On my mother’s dress, the draped scarf hung all the way down the back and this scarf ends at the back of the shoulders.  Mom also had a sheer veil attached to the back of her floral coronet that hung down the length of her dress with a lace trim at the edge.

She wore Lenten roses in her hair – in shades of cream, that sort of creamy green and maroon. This took forever to find, but it’s a great set from Wild O! It also comes with a coordinating hat. Her hair was arranged in a low bun like this one from Adam N Eve. She wore large art deco bakelite, gold and pearl earrings and a pearl necklace like these from Donna Flora.

Blowpop’s newly released Carmen is dreamily perfect – for this dress and this look. Not a perfect approximation of my mom who wore a darker russet lipstick and had moer freckles than you could count.
