It is my absolute pleasure to announce that the winner of the Toccata White Orchid bolero contest is…(dum dum duuuum….)

Racheal
My wedding is 3 weeks away and THIS is the EXACT item I’ve been looking for to complete my Mad-Men-meets-Indie-bride look {pearls, lace, feathers, and touches of leopard print}. Stunning! WAY over budget already {or else I would have the White Orchid Delux wedding dress I’ve been eyeing for an eternity}, so I’d be forever grateful to be gifted such a mindblowingly spectacular piece, but rest assured, I WILL have either the angelique or the white orchid bolero on my wedding day!

Congratulations Rachael, I am already eagerly waiting to be sent your wedding photographs after the day! Michi from Toccata will be in contact with you to get your colour choice, size and shipping address soon!

But wait dear reader, don’t be sad if you didn’t win. I know a lot of you said you would love to purchase something from her wonderful etsy store anyway, so the ever generous Michi has said that everyone that mentions Rock n Roll Bride when placing an order will also receive a free beeeautiful baroque pearl heart pendant. How fabulous will this look with your new bolero, dress, bag etc !?
