True Love

by C California Style

“The bride I’m dressing is not a conservative bride.

Classic, yes; but she is also slightly daring and sexy as well,” says designer and vintage curator Shareen Mitchell, whose one-of-a-kind, ivory lace-and-leather strapped frock recently went viral on Pinterest. Mitchell got her start 10 years ago selling vintage dresses at a flea market; today, she’s amassed a following which includes everyone from Hollywood actresses to the DIY bride and is set to release 10 new bridal styles this fall. “It’s about freedom—freedom and self-expression.” 1721 N.
