Fashion Friday: 3 Bridesmaid Trends
Posted by Kate. Filed under Bridesmaids

Yee-haw, it’s Friday!  Perhaps you’re heading out this weekend to try on dresses or scope out something pretty for your maids. If so, be sure to peek at the 2013 runway collections and our slew of fashion reports to get prepared.  In the meantime, I thought you’d be interested in peeking at three of the hottest trends for maids this season: pattern, lace, and very bright brights!

no. 1 Floral Patterns by Amsale

no. 2 Lace Frocks by Monique Lhuillier

no. 3 Bright Brights by Watters

Are you going classic or trendy with your attire?  Or classic with trend elements?  We’d love to hear!

Day Two: NYC Bridal Market Top Ten {Part Two}
Posted by Kate. Filed under Wedding Dress

{Continued from Part One}

no. 6 A Love Letter to New York

It was crisp, clean lines and ‘pure, archetypal shapes’ at Amsale’s presentation of her American Metropolitan-inspired collection.  Dress design, ‘distilled to its essence’ couldn’t be more exquisite, agreed?1

no. 7  Print Obsession

I’m totally, utterly, and completely in love with these silk chiffon print dresses by Amsale… They are feminine and floaty all the while perfectly modern and chic.  I can’t get enough!

no. 8 Crystallized Beauty

If you’ve never gotten up close and personal with a Rivini gown, I’d run (not walk) to the nearest retailer that offers this line.  These are the kind of dresses that move like water and glisten like stars… For Fall 2013, designer Rita Vinieres worked with translucent layers and crystal embellishments to design a collection that ‘…feels like a snowflakes on ice… fragile and unique…’  The fronts (and the backs) of these dresses are equally incredible.

no. 9 Siren Silhouettes

Good golly these Kenneth Pool gowns are gorgeous.  Designer, Amsale Aberra, kicked up the thermostat a few notches with silhouettes inspired by passion, drama, and seductive glamour.  It was a delightful contrast to the tailored look of her namesake collection, something for every bride!

no. 10 Platinum Perfection

Day two wasn’t complete without a stop at Watters!  Since just about everything in my closet is grey (sort of kidding), I couldn’t help but fall head over heels for this platinum mermaid fit gown and ‘gilded’ gemstone veil.

Fashion Friday: Sheathy and Chic
Posted by Kate. Filed under Wedding Dress

The classic sheath silhouette made a comeback on the Spring 2013 runways.  A great sheath dress reminds me of refined elegance, maturity, and sophistication…  Traditional sheaths fit close around the hips and taper toward the hemline, creating a very tailored look.  However, a bit of room and flow at the hem is more figure- flattering for a bride with some curves.

Are you thinking of a sheath?  One of these just might fit your fancy!

no. 1 Carolina Herrera no.2 Oscar de la Renta no. 3 Monique Lhuillier

no. 4 Elizabeth Fillmore no. 5 Rafael Cennamo no. 6 Amsale

no. 7 Monique Lhuillier no. 8 Theia no. 9 Romona Keveza

no. 10 Temperley London no. 11 Mark Zunino no. 12 Marchesa

no. 13 Theia no. 14 Elizabeth Fillmore no. 15 Sarah Janks

no. 16 Amsale no. 17 Romona Keveza no. 18 Christos

What’s your take?  Are you a sheath kind of gal?

Wishing you a lovely little weekend…

xoxo

Fashion Friday: Tufts of Tulle
Posted by Kate. Filed under Wedding Dress

One thing is for sure… there was no shy use of tulle in the Spring 2013 bridal collections.  During bridal week, I found this graceful, sheer fabric gathered, draped, layered, tiered, ruffled, and tufted in every which way!  Peek at the styles below and you’ll see what I mean.  First up- a wow tulle cape by ODLR!

no. 1 Oscar de la Renta

no. 2 Reem Acra

no. 3 Lazaro

no. 4 Amsale

no. 5 Marchesa

no. 6, 7, & 8 by Monique Lhuillier
