This vintage dress truly withheld the test of time, and was originally worn by the bride’s mother in law. From the lace detail to the high neck, this bohemian frock is just flawless with it’s free spirit.
With the weather so kooky in NYC, it has us daydreaming about Fall fashion already! Today’s runways have been showcasing some styles that are not so ‘alt’ anymore, but we still love them all the same. You gotta make quick decisions on these babies though…style from the runway is often cut in limited quantities and many socialites pre-order the best of the best. Here are four of our favorites for four different types of gals.
Check out all of the brides oohing and ahhing over the dresses and mesmerized by an appearance by the actual designer, Lazaro. Lanie and Cassandra made sure to hop in a picture with Lazaro, along with our awesome sales rep, Carrie.
And then back to the cake pops….they were too good to not have a couple! And we ended the night with our signature “L” for Lovely shot.
A great way to tie your whole wedding together is by threading through a common theme…a pattern, a color, a quote, an item. In this post we were super inspired by feathers…dreamy, ethereal feathers! The great thing is that they come in so many shapes, sizes, and colors, that you can really include them in almost every aspect without going overboard. Here are a few ways to incorporate this fun element into your wedding.
Set the tone from the get-go by displaying feathers on your save the dates and invites (image via Dea + Bean)
Don your head with a glamorous headband with feathers, pearls, and lace…so stunning! (image via Twigs & Honey)
Don your feet with these soft romantic slippers, make them your something blue! (image via Jessica Claire)
Use your boutonnières to showcase feathers in your wedding colors, along with some seasonal pods and flowers…or just to have your groom match your shoes (image via Pomp & Plumage)
Get creative with your bridesmaid’s gifts. Give them a beautiful piece of jewelry that incorporates your feather theme (image via Delezhen Charmed)
Use sleek straight feathers instead of flowers in vases as your centerpieces. These particular guinea fowl feathers are so striking and dynamic, but you can also use fluffy ostrich feathers or large peacock feathers to go for a different look. (image via The Nichols Photography on 100 Layer Cake)
Feathers are a perfect way to create a timeless bouquet that you can use as a keepsake. I am obsessing over this lush bouquet made from albino peacock and ostrich feathers…it inspired the whole post! (image via Canvas & Canopy)
