Justine and Brendon were married in Palm Springs at the Ace Hotel. I just love the retro feel of this place and all the fun details! Like her wedding, Justine’s silk organza mermaid gown was modern and chic with a retro flair (I know that sounds contradictory, but somehow it worked!). Since Justine was a girl who knew how to have fun at her wedding, she asked me to make the dress convertible to a cocktail length. I made the layered flange portion of the mermaid gown removable, but since it seemed a shame to part with it we decided to use it as an overskirt. Joined at the natural waist with a rhinestone belt it turned the dress into a fun and flirty cocktail dress for the reception and even a plunge in the pool!
