Featherlight slip gown

I think a bride should indulge and be true to her personal style by choosing a wedding dress that makes her feel absolute most like “her.” So I did! After walking down the aisle in the fitted silver gown (refer to my previous post), I took a load off by changing into this significantly lighter chiffon dress. 46696968_467084173816149_9158966524055126016_n.jpg

Simplicity is key and yet I wish to make a bold statement for my second and last look of the day.

Without any second doubt, this is my absolute favorite out of all the gowns. As you can tell from the photos, the dress is relax and comfortable to wear in. I love how it drape and flow gracefully on my body while I move around in it, but knowing that the dress is reconstructed from an used gown is the icing on the cake.

Yes, i reconstruct this dress from one of my gown previously I wore for my pre-wedding photoshoot!

This dress had so much memory stitched into it as it is the first wedding gown I put on for photo-shooting, and after 9 months, I wear it to end the chapter. Over and above, I toss my bouquet and had my first dance in it.

The rest of the night was filled with laughter, singing and dancing. We had so much fun that night!

The celebration of #happiyilemverafter has come to an end. After taking a break, I am ready to move on to new project! Hopefully by the next, it will be ready to share with you all.

Do you love my dress? Tell me below in the comment session. Hope to hear from you 🙂

My wedding gown

To be honest, I am one of those plain Jane who have no vision of walking down the aisle in my dream wedding gown, until last November, after he pop the question and the image eventually sank in my mind; all i can ever imagine of my wedding gown are “Simple, Modest and Regal”.

It took me about 2 months to work on the gown with plain crêpe I found on the fabric scrap street in Vietnam (weeeee~ upcycle!!!). I top off the look with fascinator hat and birdcage veil.

Guess which part is my favourite? The back details and the fascinator hat.

Some elders criticize my gown is too plain… Owh well~ my day my way.

Never ever imagined it could be so dreamy with tulle veil on… Kudos to my experienced MUA and talented photographer!

This is my best loved among all, full of love and happiness with bright smile on our face and blossoms in the hand.

Regal and Modest. Flawless from every angles even when I bends throughout the ceremony.  I couldn’t ask for more…

“Everytime you spend money, you are casting a vote for the kind of world you want.” Anne Lappe.

Part of the profits from your purchase will go into my recent rescue funds!

Last month we found Trigger the Rotty wandering around my housing area, fearing that he might be hurting the passerby, we took him with us while searching for his ex-owner… It took us few days to locate his ex-owner, but sadly he couldn’t afford him physically and financially anymore… the ex-owner agreed to let us re-home his 7yrs-old Trigger or put him to sleep if needed… After get him check up and neutered, we found him a pastor who willing to adopt him and give him a home… Trigger is now staying in the church and we are happy that he is in a good hand now 🙂

I always love animals more than humans. I am not ashamed of it and I think the animals deserve better (this is why I choose to be a vegetarian).

When I was young, I told my dad I want to change the world; I want a world without killing and suffering.  He then replies me with a downhearted face “You are so naive and impractical, at your age, all of you just want to be superman to save the world. You don’t have to pay bills or taking care of your responsibilities. ”

At this point, I finally understand his struggles and sacrifices for us. Call me naive, I still hope that through my own action; I wish to bring a little sunshine on a cloudy day, radiates positivities, good vibes, and a little kindness every day. To make my dreams come true, I decided to use part of the profit from my collection to support independent rescuers, animal sanctuary, TNRM (trap, neuter, release, manage), any kind of animal-related charity.

I am not making much at this point, but I believe this is just a starting point for something greater.

The three little hearts ♥♥♥ stand for my dream, my vision, my belief. Once again, for those who have supported me, thank you!

Love,

Shin Yi
