Lea-Anne Belter, as I’m sure you know by now, is coming to Lovely NYC for a trunk show and I am only too pleased to style one of her gorgeous gowns! It’s summer time ladies and the sun is shining. Pops of tangy coral orange and luscious purples are a flutter, adding the perfect mix to “Avia’s” whimsy flair.
At Lovely, we love accessories and I’m loving these! The coral necklace, pearl drop earrings, and this really awesome purple and gold mood stone all have that round circular shape and compliment each other. Even the rosette headband to put in your hair keeps the trend going.
Flowers, flowers, flowers! And you can find so many options in these colors too! Check out my pin here to see a huge list of flowers with their name and picture.
Don’t forget the tablescapes for your decor. I’m sure your guests will feel very royal sitting at these tables among the deep purple linens. Imagine the centerpieces having those coral flowers from above!
Now, don’t forget, Lea-Anne Belter is coming to Lovely NYC May 31-June 2 and then to Lovely LA August 16-18. Make your appointment here to see this little lady, “Avia.”

It’s been a long time coming, but Baz Lurhmann’s The Great Gatsby is now in a theatre near you, and jazz age is all the rage! The beloved American novel clearly stands the test of time, as it is the fifth film adaptation since 1926. We were drooling over the costumes of course- it just does not get any better than a Miuccia Prada, Brooks Brothers and Tiffany’s collaboration.
Lovely currently has a selection of 1920′s style gowns with embellishments from a bygone era. These dresses are glamorous, column shaped, and languid, perfect for the gal who wants to flit easily from guest to guest at her wedding.
Don’t think we’ve forgotten accessories! Try a feather clip, crystal headpiece, capped veil, or a jeweled cuff. The headpieces and jewelry really complete the flapper era va-va-voom look.
Now grab your man, a bottle of champagne, and get ready to do the Charleston ’till dawn!
Theia “890044″ has just arrived in our Lovely LA store and boy is she a beauty! This fitted gown is so soft with it’s all over lace and scalloped eyelash edges. A simple train and ribbon tied in a bow for the waist is absolutely perfect for someone who’s wedding is outdoors this Spring. I’ve added some “umph” to this little lady with my favorite colors this season. Emerald and pale pinks really compliment each other well and add that slight bit of tantalizing luster to your overall theme.

The great thing about New York is that you can walk everywhere. And that means, the ability to discover new places while strolling through different neighborhoods. Brooklyn Fox Lingerie is one of those places you might discover while walking on a beautiful day through the Williamsburg neighborhood of Brooklyn. Nestled just off Bedford Street, Brooklyn Fox Lingerie caters to every kind of woman, whatever her lingerie needs be. I recently sat down with Alexis, owner of Brooklyn Fox, to chat about bridal lingerie trends and how she got started.
Lovely: Tell me a bit about how you got into the lingerie business. What were your desires when opening a lingerie boutique?
Brooklyn Fox: I think that lingerie can go both ways. It’s definitely a luxury item but also a necessity. I always loved lingerie and I always wore beautiful lingerie even if I was wearing ripped jeans or a grungy look. It always made me feel special and gave me a little kick to my step. When I first opened up this shop, there was nothing in this neighborhood and you had to go into Manhattan to find anything. I wanted to do two things: open a store where you could find little gems to treasure in your closet but I also wanted a few basic and t-shirt bras that you didn’t have to go into Manhattan to find.
L: Are there any pieces that you would recommend for wearing the day of your wedding?
BF: My favorite bra is Cosabella’s Strapless Bustier. It’s plungy in the front and has really low in the back. We’ve had the most success with this bra so during bridal season, this is our go-to bra. However, if I were to get married I’d wear Fleur of England’s ‘Jasmine set’. Cosabella’s Strapless Bustier is definitely more practical but this one is really beautiful. We were so excited to see it at the shows and couldn’t wait to get it into the shops.
L: Are there any trends within the lingerie world that you see emerging or want to see emerge?
BF: There was a while when people were not buying white for under their gowns and that was interesting to notice. People were going the untraditional route and I’m not sure if it was because they wanted to be contrary or if it was something they truly felt but now it seems people have swung back and want that delicate, white set to put under their gown which is great.
L: Why do you think someone should wear lingerie on their wedding day?
BF: I think it’s a bit of a fail-safe in the occasion that there was some sort of malfunction. It really depends on the dress. There might be some reason to wear creative pieces and sometimes it just shapes you better. One of the most important things you care about when walking down the aisle is how you feel and look.
If you’re in the New York City area, take some time to visit Brooklyn Fox Lingerie at 132 North 5th Street in Brooklyn, New York. They are open on weekdays from 12 to 8 and on weekends from 12 to 7.
Okay get ready for some seriously beautiful images of some seriously beautiful bridal accessories. Gibson Bespoke is an Etsy shop based in the United Kingdom that sells bridal accessories inspired by the golden age. The attention to detail that designer Debbie puts into each piece is breathtaking and her mix of jewels and fabric makes each piece unique and stunning. My favorites?
