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

Whew!  Pardon the radio silence. It’s been a jam-packed weekend of bridal runway in New York; hopefully you’ve been catching the live-from-the-runway instagrams that we’ve posted on Facebook and Twitter.  We’re into the final day of market, running around the city seeing about a dozen more designers, but there are so many fab highlights to share!  Without further ado, here’s our top ten from day one.

no. 1 Corseted Elements by Vera Wang

In an all-ivory presentation of her signature gowns, Vera styled the newest collection with corset elements, dreamy laces and luxe embroidery that appeal equally to the classic bride, the true romantic, and the fashionista.

no. 2 Dennis Basso’s Couture Drama

Va va voom! I’m loving these drama-infused silhouettes by Dennis Basso.  A couture collection with wow factor always has a place in the highlights!

no. 3 Monique’s Feminine Romance: Bridesmaid Style

Seeing the feminine romance that is Monique Lhuillier in bridesmaid form was a total treat.  The center gown is one of my favorites from the weekend;  the fitted bodice is accented by a dropped waist and graceful tiered skirt- all in that very wearable shirred tulle.

no. 4 A Metallic Finale at Theia

Inspired by the Goddess,  designer Don O’Neill culminated his Fall 2013 runway presentation with a completely unique, rose gold and metallic ballgown silhouette.

no. 5 Lovely Temperley Laces

The always distinctive collection by Temperley London took a more classic, romantic turn this season with lots of lace, feminine shapes, and unforgettable elements of Temperley decadence.

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

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!
