j. crew cardigan

My dress: The top is a J Crew Jackie cardigan that I had fitted. The skirt is something I designed with a woman in China who was selling a midlength strapless dress with an attached skirt in that style. I asked her if she could make it full length and high-waisted and after about a month of talking we worked that up together. The belt was made by my sister out of scraps from my mother’s wedding gown. She’s been married to my dad for 41 years last month so hopefully it gives me some luck. This was an elopement and I wanted to keep the tone pretty casual, that’s also one of the reasons why Scarlet wore a suit. In the end, it turned out exactly the way I imagined it and I couldn’t be happier.
