Because we strive to bring you all things truly LOVELY, I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to share this ethereal editorial from the October edition of British Vogue.
Georgia May Jagger stars as a Victorian heroine in this dreamy picture of a quiet day in the English countryside, counting clouds and smelling roses.
If you’ve read “Jane Eyre” or “The Secret Garden,” this one is for you.
The white horse in this editorial is absolutely magical.. what great inspiration for engagement photos (albeit very fancy engagement photos..)
The editorial relays the return of femininity in fashion, with soft pastel colors, intricate lace, and delft blues from Valentino.
“Dream a little Dream” was styled by Bay Garnett, and photographed by Venetia Scott.
I feel like you can just look at this dress and know it’s the one. If it is of course for you. There’s something about “Jacinda” from Watters that makes us go weak in the knees, and as in this photo here you see it with a mocha colored slip underneath which really makes the tulle and beaded bodice pop. So I’ve paired it with mocha and creamy pink accents to compliment this feature. You can also have an ivory slip if you like. The gown is extremely light and flowy and can be worn in many different venues. You just have to make it your own. In this case however, I would pair her with these accessories. Keeping me and my gown the centerpiece.

If you would like to see this beauty, and also happen to be in the LA area, Lovely LA is having a “Best of Watters” Trunk Show and “Jacinda” is definitely ready to be tried on by gorgeous brides! Check out to see if any appointments are open at here at Lovely LA and hope to see you soon!
Though most of us are still wearing sundresses and espadrilles, it’s time to talk Fall Fashion. Thanks to all the varied street style inspiration, it’s easy to look like a million bucks! Now lets get that shopping list prioritized.
Color: I took an image consulting class once, and one of the interesting things we learned is that emerald green is a “universal color,” meaning it looks good on everyone. Do yourself a favor and get something emerald- jewelry works too, like these gorgeous earrings.
2. Oxblood red
Black and white is such an easy staple- check out this shop lovely dress that fits the bill.
Silhouette: My favorite new silhouette is definitely the 50′s cinched waist with full skirt. There is something so feminine and classic about this hour glass look.
Texture & Print: The fabrics that are popping up in the shops this Fall are not unlike those from 2012.. leather, animal print, and, well.. hairy. Tweed and houndstooth are back as well.

Oh yeah, and plaid is still cool too. That’s great news, because most of us already have a plaid shirt or 5 in our closet..
Absolutely stunning is this week’s One Great Dress. Seeing as we have a Lovely trunk show for the darling Hayley Paige in New York, it seemed fitting indeed to put forth a little posh for this beautiful gown, “Carrie.” Open jeweled back with layers upon layers of gorgeousness from a natural waist is very feminine, romantic, and as I see it, posh. Going with muted tones in grey and rose, and a little splash of chic black to complete the look, “Carrie” has quickly become one of my favorites.

Small confession: I am slightly obsessed with bathroom wallpaper. I believe your loo says a lot about you.
While I was in Europe, I got to hang out in some pretty sweet powder rooms. My favorite ones always had toile wallpaper. I loved to try and figure out what the tiny images were, and why someone thought they were worthy of being on a wall in the first place!
Toile has a certain historic elegance, but also looks great juxtaposed against modern furniture.
It’s so versatile that it could really belong in any kind of room, which is probably why it’s still widely used today. Now there is modern toile to decorate with: urban cities, animals, and new cultural elements are depicted. If you were to design toile wallpaper, what images would you use?
