I love a sleeve me. And no it’s not just because I have a girl crush on Madam Middleton, it’s because they look so deliciously elegant, be it capped, three quarter legnth or full on all-the-way-to-your-wrist.
Beverly Lister’s 2012 collection offers a varied selection of sleeved numbers as well as your perhaps more traditional shoulder baring beauties. Taking influence from the timeless glamour of the 1950’s and 1960’s and using delicate beaded Chantilly lace and Duchesse satin, Beverly’s current selection of pretty is opulent, decadent and seriously red-carpet worthy.
Beverly Lister gowns are all designed, hand-made and hand-finished in England and are stocked throughout the UK.
Perfectly Capped: My two favourites from the collection, the neckline on Bouquet (top) is universally flattering and Juliet (bottom) is ridiculously feminine. Loving the over-sized floral birdcage, so stylish.
Winter Chic: A viable option for a bride getting married in the colder months, the Baltimore comes complete with a removable top piece unveiling a true fairytale princess inspired gown underneath.
A Royal Influence: It is the simplicity of Eliza that for me makes it so covetable, combine with chunky statement pearls and a backcombed ballerina bun for maximum impact.
Lady-like: Not everyone wants to flash a substantial amount of skin come W-day and if that’s you then why not give Martha a whirl, charmingly sophisticated.
And the veil? I die.
Delectably Demure: Beverly used the super sweet sixties style of Doris Day and used fancy floral applique to create Primrose (top left and bottom right) and Sara would look stunning paired with a wow-factor headpiece. And yes, I am strangely attracted to the satin-ribbon-as-bandana look….
