To create the look they were going for, they curated vintage-chic props such as a picnic basket, retro cameras, old lanterns and a beautiful antique chair. Together with the lovely gowns and accessories and fabulous makeup by Karrie Welch, the team was able to create this incredible light and airy spring time lookbook. Karrie used Fortunate Face Mineral makeup with crushed pearl, Mica, and Kaolin clay which are soothing and protective to skin, yet water and sweat proof. This makeup feels gloriously light – like bare skin – and is 100% handmade and natural with no artificial fragrances or dyes.
When you buy a Celia Grace gown or accessory, you’re not only getting exquisite, flattering and decadent pieces to wear, each gown has a story behind it that is just as beautiful as the dress itself. From the heirloom eco silk and empowering work conditions for seamstresses, to a water filtration system donated to the needy with each dress, Celia Grace offers a more meaningful purchased gown that you can truly feel good about.
As mentioned, each gown has a name and story behind it. Last month we featured the Eleanor gown, named after Eleanor Roosevelt. In today’s shoot we have a few more. First there’s the the Marie gown, a tiered lace gown inspired by Marie Curie, a doctor and scientist before her time and the first woman to earn the Nobel Prize. Next, the long gown with the thin straps is named the Rachel in honor of Rachel Carson, an amazing environmentalist.
The short dress is a new style that doesn’t have a name yet. Today we’d like to invite you to help us name it. If you’d like to possibly be the one to come up with the name, please write in the comments below the name of a “famous” woman who inspires you and why. For example, my pick would be Diana, Princess of Wales for her legacy of charm and humanitarianism.
Thanks for stopping by!
