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.

As a sneak peak to a special upcoming trunk show at our Lovely New York, I thought a styled post on the “Princeville” gown by the talented designer Katie May, would do nicely. We will hear more from Katie next week in my interview with her, but in the meantime, here is One Great Dress from the “lovely” Katie May.
Many ways of course, as we all know, to style one gown. With the “Princeville” gown, I decided to let the dress guide me, and chose simplistic elements of sweet white flowers, elegant drop earrings, and soft hair styles. And with that dramatic low back, a rustic atmosphere compliments the glamour well.

As you can see, The Great Gatsby has certainly made an impact on our modern world as a fad that is not going away anytime soon. Great, glorious images flash through our minds of an age when glitz and glamour, partying and schmoozing, and luxury seemed to be all that mattered. Today, the wedding world has accepted with glee, the trend of making their weddings more 1920s themed and Nicole Miller as a designer is one of the best to fit a bridal gown into this era.
With beading making these dresses more substantial in weight, a fall wedding would be the perfect time to wear one of these dresses. Adding a vintage fur stole from your grandmother would be very appropriate indeed.
The Jazz Age was dramatic. It was bold, and luxurious. And accessories to dress up such gowns would be the same. A dark lip, jewels for days, and even suspenders for the groomsmen are simple touches that style and define a wedding theme such as the 1920s. Be it old Hollywood glamour, or more beachside like The Great Gatsby, any venue can be twisted and turned to be more art deco appropriate with details.
Lovely NYC is having a Nicole Miller Trunk Show, so you yourself can try on Jazz Age inspired gowns to see if they are right for you. July 26th-28th. And it will also be the last trunk show before our flagship store moves spaces to an even grander venue herself!
“Gemma” by Rebecca Schoneveld is exquisite. I can see her on a 1920’s english countryside, but to give her the pop of color that every 20’s wedding needs, is a strong cobalt blue. It really pops against the soft creams and pinks, giving you that bit of drama that was what the era was all about. With the dress’s chantilly lace, it’s very light. And then with the v-neckline and the more fitted shape, Gemma covers a lot of truly figure flattering points. Oh yes darling, “Gemma” is One Great Dress.

Brides have been asking when the SOFT collection by Rosa Clara will arrive and my dears, it is SOON! The beauty of these gowns stand stunning alone and need no introduction. Soft is a perfect word to describe these gowns, and is especially evident in the lovely “Ubeda.” But with this word soft, I wanted to convey the stunning angelic nature of the dress and not focused so much on styling but giving you an overall feel of what this dress can do for you, your venue, your whole wedding day. This is One Great Dress.

And oh yes, Happy July 4th Lovelies!
