Claire Pettibone ‘Romantique’ Collection

Oh my. I’m so totally in love with the gorgeous new ‘Romantique’ collection from Claire Pettibone!  If you’re not already a fan, I apologise in advance.

Claire’s dresses are always perfect, full of light fabrics, romance, and beautiful detailing (of the floral variety) and I defy you not to fall in love!  The  ‘Romantique’ collection is everything you would expect. and so much more, with trend-setting cuts and unexpected touches.  Low backs feature throughout – both with Claire’s now-iconic floral lace and without. Sleeves play a key role in many of the designs – from delicate flutter sleeves to chiffon and unusual ‘shirred’ lace, as does layering with hi-low hems, tiered lace and sheer skirts.  For the fashion-forward bride this collection covers every trend with an utterly bohemian twist and truly romantic feel.

After a decade-long career in corporate interior design, I took a giant leap of faith, left the security of an office job, and founded B.LOVED in 2011 as a platform for romantic and beautiful wedding inspiration. Thanks to a whole lot of creativity, hard work and passion, my gamble paid off and B.LOVED became one of the leading wedding blogs in the UK.

You’ll also find me working as an Editorial Stylist, where I design and curate beautiful photoshoots for wedding and lifestyle brands, as well as contributing as a founding member of bridal inspiration hub Aisle Society, and running wedding industry community the B.LOVED Hive from our super pretty base in London. Yep, I definitely have the best job in the world.
