it's all in the details.

we're all girls here (i think). so we can openly admit how we gush about and lust after every piece on the pages of the newest anthropologie catalog we just got in the mail. we fawn over every photo shoot we see on their website. we scavenge the "fresh cuts" section of the sale page to score said lusted after pieces at a reasonable price.

and have you heard the latest?

starting february 14th (how romantic), they are introducing their wedding line. let the rejoicing begin!!!

yes, i confess, i went to the sneak peak website immediately. and continued to dream of the lovely pieces that were hinted at in the photos. BUT WAIT!...i told myself. you love vintage, too. WE love vintage, too. what we love about vintage is the uniqueness, the quality, the details. and that is exactly what we love about anthro dresses too.

the uniqueness, the quality, the details!

so, as a bit of a rebuttal to the debuting anthro wedding line, i bring you my picks of equally lust-worthy wedding garb from ebay. you can thank me later.

whimsically woven

i've featured this dress before, and i was astonished to see that it is still on ebay. i absolutely love it. the open, metallic knit. the ribbon straps (and stitching throughout the dress). it's just too beautiful!

drapey goodness

the cut of this dress is super modern. and the details are so elegant. broomstick pleating. wavy hem. beaded fringe. gorgeous.

short and sassy

okay, this would be one SEXY bride. while this dress is super-duper short, the details are so sweet. lace and swiss dots. perfect balance achieved.

elegant minimalism

this dress is all about the texture. you're gonna have to be super slim to pull off the cut, but, WOW, is it stunning.

storybook romance

romance just oozes out of this dress. the silky fabric. the lacy collar. the ribbons. ROMANCE!

charming crochet

a dress that is fully crocheted is just so special. even if this dress wasn't handmade, it took time to make. lots of time. throw a vintage slip under it for a special beach wedding (and a bikini under it for the reception!).

casually colorful

if you want something more cheery than the average neutral color wedding dress, this one fits the bill. i love the ruffle collar and the grosgrain bow belt. this one looks like it came right off the pages of that anthro catalog already!

{happy bidding!}
