Fashion Fridays - Short & Sassy Wedding Dress

In honor of the addition of dresses to The Left Bank Jewelry's Line, I give you "Fashion Fridays."  Each Friday this month will feature a different dress from the Fancy New York line and the perfect accessories to go with it.  Each dress in the Fancy line was created by a design team of the fashionable Nato brothers with a passion for dressing your "Sunday Best".  Their vintage inspired dresses come short or long, are made to measure and available in a variety of colors.

Our first Fashion Friday Dress, Meet April. This strapless dress with bubble skirt, in silk Mikado, is a modern take on a 60's favorite. The origami bow and bubble shape skirt create a slimming effect.  This is the perfect dress for accessorizing.  Add a chunky statement necklace and bracelet, or opt for large deco inspired earrings and a stunning brooch!  

Some pieces we like...

Add a gorgeous statement necklace that mixes pearls and crystals for a retro meets modern twist.  This plain dress can use a little pop from a great piece like this Haute Bride Five Medallion Necklace, price available upon request.  Check out some other fabulous bib necklaces here and other gorgeous statement necklaces here.

Add an oversized round brooch to the center of April's origami inspired bow for an extra dose of sparkle.  Vintage Inspired Brooch, $68.

The perfect bracelet?  Something chunky and edgy keeps you from feeling too "girly."  Or mix it up with a cluster of bangles or glam bracelets.  Check out more of our favorite chunky crystal bracelets here.  Shown above, Carrie Bracelet, $129.

A short dress definitely needs a short veil.  Try a French or Russian Tulle birdcage or opt for something made of traditional tulle, either way, a petite veil that just covers the eyes is perfectly chic.  We love the Leila Bridcage Veil by Brideshead Revisited, $300.  Comes complete with extra soft tulle and a gorgeous flower.

Finish off the dress by pairing shoes with a platform heel for an extra long leg line.  We love that these ballroom dance inspired shoes come with an ankle strap or optional ribbon laces.  Each pair features over 1000 hand applied Swarovski crystals on the heel.  Angela Nuran Starletta Glitz, $675.
