1935 BridesMaid Dress

1935 BridesMaid Dress
This entry is part 19 of 23 in the series Carondelet Historical Society Project

This mesh dress came labeled “Bridesmaid dress from M___’s 1935 wedding”. It’s classic! The dress was blue mesh over a dark blue slip. Not using it in the 1930s wedding recreation was a mistake, but I was afraid the colors were too dark in comparison to the other dresses. Sometimes I make mistakes, and this was still just about 6 months into my adventures in teaching myself vintage styling and photography!

We paired it with a flowery hat that was probably from the 1960s, and I did Nikki’s makeup in matching purple. I like the grunge looking photos shot in the back of the studio the best.
