The Wedding Shrug

I’m currently loving the wedding shrug. It’s a nice mix of casual with dressy. In San Francisco in August, I’m going to need something warm. I bet I could find one/ get one made on Etsy.

    Cute! Love the sleeves on the top one : )

    you could totally find or commission one on etsy – good call.

    i especially like the black one – the color makes me think of a man’s overcoat thrown over a woman’s dress (though it’s obviously a feminine shape, and way teeny). high contrast works well, especially when it’s not part of the dress itself (unless you’re gwen stefani and john galliano’s made it personally for you).

    I’m considering tryign to comission my dress on etsy… I know what I want, and it’s pretty simple. If I could find someone in San Francisco up to the job…
