Armour sans Anguish

Pretty Dresses Made From Recycled Bits

In a sea of custom orders it’s so fun to be able to create a one-of-a-kind piece using the special materials that pop into our studio.  The Cupid’s Arrow Dress is one such piece, made using a vintage petticoat, salvaged hand-sewn lace, and a unique antique bow-and-arrow finding.  Our favorite guy ever, Scot Woodman used the dress for an Organic Celestial styled shoot you can see here

Our super sweet client Gabe sent over photos by We Are Jim and Gina from her country wedding day and we love them!  Here’s what she had to say: “I just wanted to send one more thank you note to let you know how amazing the dresses were for our wedding. I loved the way they all turned out, even the last minute addition of the flower girl dress was perfect.”  A big thanks to Gabe for being such a joy to work with! xo

Though we shared a couple of photos before, we just can’t get enough of all the fun details in our client Kate’s UK wedding.  She used AsA bridesmaids dresses in pastel pinks and turquoises—You can see the whole shabang at Rock My Wedding now!

I’m so excited to announce that this and a bunch of other lacey, gorgeous springtime pieces by AsA are now available at #urbanoutfitters’ new concept store #spaceninety8 in Williamsburg, Brooklyn!
