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

Here we are coming to the end of our bridal week highlights; and after four (and just a little more) exhausting and exhilarating full-on days of bridal runway,  the final day was just as exciting as the first- including not one but two ombre beauts!

no. 1 Mark Zunino’s Blushers

As a follow up to his bridal debut, Mark Zunino revealed his newest Kleinfeld’s-Exclusive collection including a handful of pretty numbers with blush tones and luxe embellishments (check out the lace, crystal beading and ombre shading below)!  For two seasons straight I’ve been glued to his gowns… I think bigger than big things are coming for Mark Zunino in the world of bridal.

no. 2 Violet Ombre at Kelly Faetanini

We’ve seen a few bridal designers now, do the oh-so-subtle ombre thing, but Kelly Faetanini unleashed an ombre look in all it’s glory, in gradient shades of violet feathers.   I don’t use the term jaw-dropping too often.. but this one was a definite wow in my book! 

no. 3 Oscar, Oscar, Oscar

Oscar de la Renta showed a small collection of classic couture this season… and I loved this one because those ruffles, tiers, and trim are so fabulous and so Oscar!

no. 4 Incredible Accessories

My time in NY wasn’t complete without a look at some gorgeous accessories.  When I stopped over at Jennifer Behr’s showroom, it was like eat your heart out.  Thank you very much, I will.  Aren’t these new pieces from her 2013 collection just lovely in all the best ways?

no. 5 Pnina’s Lavish Romance

Sitting at the Pnina Tornai show makes me giddy with excitement.  Because I know what’s coming is going to be lavishly romantic and over-the-top beautiful.  Like expected, she delivered.  I think this shot says it all….

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!
