Timeless and glamorous mermaid embroidered tulle gown with sweetheart neckline and back and waist detail. The embroidery and beading on this gown are incredibly beautiful.
This dress stole the day! It was frequently greeted with awe and admiration. The lace up back allow some flexibility with sizing as I was usually a size 12-14 and am large busted.
Roz la kelin is an Australian wedding dress designer with a gift for designing dresses that celebrate and flatter a woman’s body. I was convinced of this the moment I tried ‘Turner’ on. It was the very first dress I tried on and although I thought I should be sensible and try other dresses on over the coming weeks, none compared. I could not get this dress out of my head, so I went back to the Roz la kelin boutique and bought the most beautiful thing I’ve ever owned (with a little guilt as it was much more then I budgeted). It’s funny what we can justify for love.
I had wanted to keep her. Maybe just to put on occasionally and feel like a glamorous goddess while I regail my children with wedding day stories. Or to give to my daughter for her wedding day, if she was so inclined. But I find myself in a place in life where parting would help with more important present matters and I realised that holding onto it for dress ups, or the possibility of my daughter wearing it one day, is an injustice to this gorgeous gown. It shouldn’t be tucked away in storage. It should be out there in the world making it more beautiful and making other women feel amazing on their wedding days.
I had the hem brought up professionally. I am 164 cm tall. Has been professionally dry-cleaned and comes with hoop petticoat that I wore underneath. Wearing without the hoop also given a slightly different shape if you prefer that.
