From the website: For the woman who dreams of pure poetry in motion, Los Angeles designer Claire Pettibone will indulge her every romantic inclination. Born to artist parents, it was inevitable that Claire would enter a creative field. She spent her early childhood living in rural New York in a nineteenth century home where her parents created their art, and Claire began to draw and paint as well. At the age of 4, she attended a wedding at St. Patrick's Cathedral in Manhattan that left a lasting impression. Claire was so enthralled with that walk down the aisle, that she began drawing brides and begged her mother to make her a wedding gown!

Ah, the Dragonfly. I love this dress. It might be my favorite Pettibone gown. Ever. I love the sequins, I love the sleeves (I know, it's a surprise) and I love the embroidered train. Are you skeptical?? I was, too. Until I saw this...
It's on a model and it's so good I can't stand it! Simply marvy!!
So get on over to the Claire Pettibone website, check out her blog and look for a salon near you...
