Preferred Vendor: Mill Crest Vintage

For those of you that know me you know that I have a deep love for all things vintage.  I absolutely adore vintage clothing, hairstyles, and accessories.  If I could, I would redo my entire wardrobe to have pieces from the 1920's-1950's.  Don't believe me? Take a look below:


So with my love of vintage, I am ecstatic to present to you a preferred vendor, Mill Crest Vintage!  Mill Crest Vintage is a lovely boutique, located in Lambertville, NJ featuring beautiful, hand-selected vintage fashions and accessories directly from the past 100 years of fashion history. You can visit their site by going to www.MillCrestVintage.com.  They not only offer vintage day and evening dresses, but they also offer bridal gowns!  And I must say, their gowns are absolutely exquisite.  For you brides looking to have a unique and vintage flair to your wedding dress, this is definitely the place to shop. Have a look for yourself at some of their lovely gowns:



1940's Pearl White Bustle Gown



This incredible wedding gown was designed in the late 40's for a very special bride
indeed. This is truly a ball gown made of a opulent pearl white silk organza, which fully
lined with a beautiful soft satin in the same pearl color. The bodice is boned and
features a strapless neckline which curves around the back in a slight dip. The waist is
banded with four pleats, which accentuate the figure beautifully. The bust line carries a
partially attached frontal flap that is adorned with the most interesting, yet unusual
beadwork of black steel and sequins with 9 tear drop pearl accents (one is missing, but
can be easily replaced). The skirt flows from the natural waist in a princess or A-line
cut and includes an additional layer of tulle for added fullness. The back of the gown
has a charming little bustle finished with a self fabric bow and fastens in the back with
a concealed metal zipper. There is some slight discoloration and staining on the hemline,
but can be easily remedied by a professional dry cleaner.

rustling satin. The waist is accentuated with a pale blue velvet ribbon and a lavender
