Cambie by Truvelle / sz 2
Cambie has beaded French lace that lies softly atop a v-neck bodice and continues to the open, illusion back with delicate, scalloped cap sleeves. Silk organza is added to the bust for a touch of coverage. The romantic bodice complements a hand ruched, off-white chiffon skirt, cut on the bias to flow beautifully from the natural waist to the floor.
ABOUT THE DESIGNER:
Growing up in her mom’s sewing studio, Truvelle’s founder and creative director Gaby gained the knowledge and drive to start her own line. Seeing the need for dresses that make brides feel just as comfortable as they are beautiful, Truvelle has emerged as one of a&bé’s easy favorites. Gaby and her team have consistently embodied their girl-powered dream of gowns with mindful design. With the goal of zero waste during production, their gowns are not only beautiful, they are thoughtfully made. This Vancouver based company focuses on attention to quality, the “little things” and overall coolness for the effortlessly confident bride. These handcrafted, ethereal styles are perfect for the modern bride.
CONDITION: Pre-worn & Altered
DRESS HISTORY: The hemline was taken up 3-6”, the dress was taken in, and the length of the torso/bustline was taken in a bit due to the bride's short stature. This dress has been professionally cleaned.
FLAWS: There is a small tear in the chiffon in the top back of the skirt. There are a couple of loose threads at the top of the dress where the lace and beads are.

WHY SHE LOVED IT: This dress is romantic, girly, beautiful, simple, and classy! The lace and beaded details are so delicate and had me swooning from the first sight! I am not the princess dress kind of girl so I didn't want anything to over the top and this was the perfect amount! I felt like my elevated self in this dress. The skirt is flowy and the dress was so comfortable that I stayed in it throughout the night!
HOW DID SHE FEEL: It made me feel classy, beautiful, and sexy. I wanted something that I could stand proudly in front of my family while also looking sexy for my groom. It is a truly whimsical dress that I could live in! I tell everyone, if you want to feel like your most beautiful self, step into a wedding dress! This felt like that for me!
DEAR FUTURE BRIDE: I hope this dress brings you as much joy on your special day as it did mine. Although this day is about the start of forever with your groom, this dress will be the perfect cherry on top of your perfect day!
