Steampunk/Victorian Romantic Cuffs

I've been in love with the lace cuffs since i first time saw The movie "Interview With A Vampire". At the end of the movie Tom Cruise's character is driving the car and he takes the dirty old lace cuffs form under his jacket. And there was something extremely sexy in his gesture. Yeah a man can wear lace cuffs and can look sexy in my mind :) Oh and just to make it clear.. I am NOT a fan of Tom Cruise otherwise :)

I actually forgot about cuffs for many years after that movie, but at some point they did came back to my mind. This time for good. And this feeling of wanting to pull some fantastic cuffs on my wrists became stronger and stronger. I know i am one of the most confusing people when it comes to fashion. I love such a different things.. But oh well i am what i am. Anyway with my own wedding coming closer and closer i am looking deeper and deeper inside myself, who i am and what i love. And different things are coming to my mind and I'm afraid people around me will see some changes in my everyday wardrobe as well and not only on my wedding day, as i am finding the deep down "Me". Have you noticed learning something about yourself ?

So today i will be showing one of my deepest loves... romantic Victorian/Barokko cuffs. I hope you will be able to look at them without prejudice and maybe with some little interest. What is sure, is that not every bride will have a courage or even wanting to wear them, but maybe to someone will want to try them.

 This bride had only one unique looking lace cuff on her wrist. It is interesting how such an accessory gives this beautiful bride such an unique and romantic look.

This fabulous Felted Cuffs are beaded with sea akoya, freshwater pearls and gold plated beads. They are felted from merino wool tops, cashmere and 1 yard of fabulous rare Indian silk ! Unique design by TianaChi I simply in love with Tiana's works. Her designs are truly unique and crafted with love. They are little more expensive because of the fantastic expensive materials used, but i wish one day i will be able to get something that is made by her. This cuffs could have been perfect on my wedding day, but without the golden pearls, as i have all silver and ivory coloured :)
