#fridayfavourite Fifties vintage flair

The tight war years were over and gowns got bigger.  Brides said goodbye to the slim line trends from the twenties, thirties and forties.  The top of gowns also got a bit more revealing and showing your shoulders was all the rage.  Elizabeth Taylor's gown in Father of the bride started a huge trend of lace inserts.  Todays gowns take the best elements and make them modern, the Harper and Chandler are great examples.
