A wonderful weekend to all!
PS…This weekend is my big dress outing with my mom and bridesmaids. We’ll be hitting up quite a few shops in the city. I look forward to telling you all about it. Wish me luck!
The dress! The shoes! The veil! The bouquet! The GROOM! Everything is coming together and working perfectly for this gorgeous bride. This is our first shortie One Great Dress and we couldn’t have asked for better one to start with. Libby’s entire looks is flawless. She manages to be modern and classic all at once. And there are just no words to describe how fabulous her shoes are. The whole wedding is pretty wonderful and you can see more by visiting Once Wed.

We’ve seen a lot of alternative wedding dresses around the blogs the past few weeks. Emerald green, jet black…all so fun and daring. But if you are prefer to put your toe in the water and not dive in, we love the subtle details that make a gown unique but still very bridal.
The two prints on the top have just the right amount of spunk (a fun polka dot with black trim shot by Rodney Smith and a Carolina Herrera gown from her Spring 2010 collection.) These illustrate how a subtle print can work for a more preppy bride or a romantic bride. Or if you really aren’t taking the plunge, but like to lounge by the edge of the pool taunting the boys, you can have some fun with color through the buttons on the backside. The black and white is again more of a clean trimmed look…just the right hint of Audrey Hepburn, again shot by the photo love of our life, Rodney Smith. Or you can show your sass by hot pink buttons like the ones on this wedding gown designed and worn by the Lovely Heidi Elnora (who will we carry exclusively at Lovely this spring!)
It may seem a little premature to be thinking about bridesmaid dresses when I’ve yet to even try on a dress for myself, but I’m just loving these girls in white. The look can be soft and casual or glam and fun.
A little bit of trivia: In Roman times, superstition dictated that bridesmaids must be dressed similar to the bride, acting as decoys to confuse evil spirits and thus protect the bride from harm.

Alright, I know V-day is a solid two weeks away, but we love that Abby started the homage early over on Style Me Pretty, and we are happy to play along! We thought we’d share something we’ve been obsessing over lately….the color red. We’re not going to lie to you, red felt a little passé. But lately, coupled with a velvety black, it seems totally retro and dreamy again. Or perhaps it’s just our new found obsession with vampire novels that are swaying us that way.
