House of Worth
This was worn by the wife of one of the great American bankers of the 19th century, J.P. Morgan, Jr. (1867-1943). It exemplifies the grandeur of Worth clothing among wealthy Americans, who aspired to be associated with European royalty.
Wedding Dress for Grace Kelly (Sketch)
Movie actress Grace Kelly, a Philadelphia native, wore this wedding dress for her marriage to Prince Rainier III in the cathedral of Monaco on April 19,1956; Academy Award-winning designer Helen Rose, who had created Kelly’s costumes for the films High Society and The Swan, was chosen to design the gown, which was constructed by the MGM wardrobe department. In style and detail the dress was conceived to complement the “fairy-princess” image of the bride. A bell-shaped skirt of ivory peau de soie supported by three petticoats, a high-necked bodice of Brussels lace was re-embroidered so the seams would be invisible and then accented with seed pearls. Pearl-embellished lace also covers the prayer book, shoes, and cap, which is surmounted by an orange-blossom wreath. The circular silk net veil, especially designed so that the bride’s face could be seen, is decorated with appliquéd lace motifs including two tiny love birds

Mayday…Mayday…Summer is approaching in a big, big way and your wardrobe is in need of a fresh coat of paint - literally! The days ahead are easy breezy, so step into the season with a fresh and colorful outlook. Block out some time for this DIY that mixes simple-chic style with bold n’ bright hues.To create: Use gaff tape to section off the cuffs, collar, pocket and button line of your button down shirt. Pour a small amount of fabric spray into a paint dish, then use a foam brush to apply a thin layer to the cuffs of your shirt. Choose two other colors, then repeat the process on the rest of the blocked off sections. Once dry, remove the tape and join the color-block trend!Get down with DIY and a dope playlistCurated by The Jane Doze
