Lovely in Brides Magazine on ‘The Bridal Cap’

Brides Magazine asked our take on the latest accessory trends in bridal and it took us no time to answer…The Bridal Cap!! We love this trend and had several versions come into Lovely and sell within the day, so we know our cool, chic brides get it first! Aside from Kate Moss’s divine cap, here are a few of our other favorites. Whether you wear it over the brow or at the crown of your head, bridal caps look modern and vintage at the same time.

Bling: Johanna Johnson
Vintage: The Thirty Something Bride
Dot: Twigs & Honey (available at Lovely!)

Alt Bride from the Fall 11 Runways

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.
