I met Michelle Blenkinsopp-Guild, founder of Shell Belle Couture, shortly after she launched her luxury collection in 2010. I was immediately smitten. Her beautiful bridal designs, created in England, are lingerie masterpieces. Composed with European silks, tulles, and leavers laces, they are heirloom pieces that hark back to a time when precious underpinnings were all the rage.

These are difficult times, for certain. The cancellation of a wedding pales compared to the flood of fear, but still, when a girl has a serious dream and must wake up to reality, it can be disconcerting. Planning tirelessly for the big day is a great deal of the process: dress, flowers, venue, music, guests. It’s all about the anticipation culminating in one exquisite moment and a lifetime of memories. Maybe at this very disconcerting juncture in our lives right now, a bit of fantasy could be a welcome distraction.… Read More
