The designs at MarcellaModa are all unique, designed in NYC, and produced in Bulgaria. It’s a family-run store, and this particular dress, with its cute little off-shoulder flare, is currently 20 % off! Also, a nice touch, proceeds from each sale go to UNICEF. Buy local AND do a good deed – can’t go wrong on this one!
ROHMY comes at you from Germany, with some seriously sweet rope couture dresses. But I picked this one out – less for its ropes (since it barely has any compared to the other styles), and more for its overall shape. Check it out – you won’t be disappointed by the other styles, either. Maybe by the prices though… which are sky high!
Check out this Victorian-styled dress, all asymmetrical and decorated with pretty frilly lace. The wet look material is totally in style Too, for your fashionistas that insist on only wearing the most “in” trends right now. I, however, think it’s the perfect piece to round out any closet for years to come!
Check out the designer’s other work while you’re there – it’s all gorgeous: Dress Lourdes, victorian goth, size S/M black faux leather, Somnia Romantica by Marjolein Turin
Todat’s feature comes to you from Texturable – a handmade, felted, and slashed/cut-out dress. This piece makes a punky statement whilst remaining completely wearable at the office. Maybe I shouldn’t be featuring this wool sweater-dress in summer, but… there’s always Australia!
Some of what I’m up to this year is planning a steampunk wedding. The style encompasses many sub-genres, post-apocalyptic being one of them. When I came upon this dress by Tiina from Finland, I briefly considered it as a bridesmaids dress for the wedding – but the style I began on for the wedding is more upscale Victorian, than semi-destroyed apocalyptic, so it wouldn’t work. Plus, who could really ask their bridesmaids to pay upwards of $1,000 for a dress?!??! Not this middle-class gal! Lol!
