I love the veils!! It looks SOO GOOD in the pictures, but I don't know when I would be able to wear that without people look at me funny on the street haha. But that's also what makes these fashion photos so entertaining :)

haylin said...

oh my god, that's awesome!!!

zupu said...

Tulle is so chic and elegant used in the right way. Definately not meant just for funeral! Gives a very "French" effect to classic looks.

Little Bow Prep said...

These are all awesome!

I especially like the last one!

ZombieLace said...

Hahaha, "big fan" oh you clever thing. I have a vintage little hat kind of like the last ones with a bit of a veil but have never worn it out! I just can't figure out what to wear it with, but these ladies look stunning in their veils so I will have to figure it out.

wrennybird said...

This has inspired me to get in my studio and use all the pretty netting I bought months ago.
Beautiful collection of images.
