NY Bridal Runway Top Ten: Day no. 3
Posted by Kate. Filed under Wedding Dress

Are you ready for another top ten?  Hope so! There was a little rock n’ roll, avant garde luxury, English sophistication and tons more on the runways this past Sunday…  These were the highlights of our day:

no. 1

The Badgley Mischka Bridal presentation was super fun- featuring dresses that reminded us of the music scene of bygone eras. It was sexy V-necks, bold embellishments, and head-to-toe patterned fabrics that stole our hearts.

no. 2

A stop to see Carolina Herrera’s newest collection had us totally smitten with her couture details, details, details. From a sweet two-toned ballerina ballgown to these sophisticated sleeved beauties, straight up, the gowns are gorg.

no. 3

We were bewitched but never bewildered, when we enjoyed Vera’s avante garde presentation of her latest season of pristinely designed bridals. There was no white to be found on this runway, only sexy shades of nude and black.  You can catch the full collection right {here}.  (All dresses do come in ivory).

no. 4

This three-tiered stunner stole the show at Ulla Maija Couture.

no. 5

The Rivini presentation was utterly impressive.  We were particularly taken with these shades of blush and lilac.

no. 6

Sunday wasn’t complete without a stop at Amy Kuschel’s showroom, where we took in shapely silhouettes, heirloom laces, and her collection of sweet 40’s inspired bridal fashion.

no. 7

It was love at first sight when we saw Lela Rose’s lovely necklines.  Pure bridal perfection.

no. 8

At Ines di Santo, we took in high octane glamour.. We adore those chic, wavy, asymmetrical hairstyles…!

no. 9

When we think of perfect-fit gowns and simple, elegant silhouettes, Nicole Miller always comes to mind. We got the full preview of dresses just right for an ‘understated elegance’ type of bride or for cutting the cake!

no. 10

One of our last stops of the day was a visit with Sassi Holford.  She is such a dazzling English woman, and her designs parallel this with a style of English sophistication.

Trend Snippet: The Black Sash Stays Strong
Posted by Kate. Filed under Wedding Dress

A few seasons ago, Vera came out with a collection that was all about the black sash. Fortunately, that trend has stayed strong. The dynamic contrast and subtle avant garde styling has us tirelessly enjoying the elongated life span of this trend. In Chicago, we saw several black-sashed stunners that you can bet will turn a head or two.

Row One: 1- Watters, 2- Maggie Sottero, 3- Martina Liana

Row Two: 1- Maggie Sottero, 2- Watters, 3- Maggie Sottero

Dessy Does it All
Posted by Kate. Filed under Bridesmaids, Wedding Dress

The fashion frenzy continues… We’re just giddy this time of year, when the collections for the following year are revealed.  Here is some more goodness from our jaunt to Chicago.. One of the highlights was scoping out the new styles from the good people at Dessy.  Between Lela Rose, After Six, Alfred Sung, and the Dessy Collection (all collections by the Dessy co.) we saw a little glitz, a little glamour, some things sweet, and some things sophisticated.

We’re lovin’ the soft mesh fabric and wide band of sparkle at the waist!

This one shoulder beauty is ultra glam, and the chiffon side ruching- looks sooo nice and flattering.

A few sweet cotton frocks were in the line-up.  The look is fresh and simple with a natural waist and scalloped pocket details.

This knee length stunner is a perfect blend of modern sophistication… Love love love.

… And we couldn’t help but show you the latest from Dessy’s Destination bridal collection.. the soft, movable leaf-cut fabric, dropped waist, and gathered bodice is one to pin/bookmark/share!

This weekend we’re off to New York to see and share more 2012 fashion!
