Let’s Talk About a Dress…

Who doesn’t swoon over the intricate details and ultra feminine shapes of Monique Lhuillier gowns? But, this one, I must say, blows all other gowns before it right out of the water! I can’t get over the sleeves (mainly) and the bustling in the skirt. It is too much to handle!

If this isn’t the most beautiful thing you’ve ever seen, please show me what beats it!

Anaessia: Private Runway Dream

The Private Runway Dream video from Anaessia is just that a total dream. I can’t get over these amazing designs. Everything Anaessia does is very ballet inspired with a very fairytale feeling. I love all the beading and shapes of her gowns. Enjoy!

Old Wedding Photo Friday (Sorta)!

These photos are from the 1935 Harper’s Bazzar. I’m not sure what the original feature was about. But the gowns in it are just amazing! Please enjoy!

I think their hair style's are just to die for. A couple whirling together, she in Mainbocher. Behind her, dancing in Mainbocher's printed crepe. Semi-seated, Heim's pale flowered taffeta. Seated, Heim's black chiffon.



Samuelle’s Romantic Gowns

British Designer, Sam Wells Beasley has been creating the most amazing romantic gowns for years. She has a number of A-List patrons, including Mrs. Obama, Anne Hathaway and Kate Winslet. The current Samuelle Couture collection is full of tulle and organza in flowing classic shapes. I just love everything about her designs.







Feature: Jenny Yoo 2012 Collection

I have been in love with Jenny Yoo since before anyone I knew was getting married. Her gowns are simple perfection, and her prices are unbeatable. Her designs have certainly been developing through each new collection, and 2012 must be her best yet. I’m thrilled to see she is incorporating more lace. Here is a preview of the new collection. I am so excited about it!

All of these designs and more should appear in stores later this month and online soon after. Can’t wait!

Dior For Today

I have been a bad blogger lately. I’ve really been ignoring my computer entirely for the last few days. But, today I’m back! So, while I’m out shopping for Week 4 of 28 Sets in 28 Weeks, here is a beautiful vintage Dior wedding gown for you to oggle over!


Vendor Profile: Wedding Gowns by Leanne Marshall

I discovered Leanne Marshall (Leanimal on Etsy) today as I admired this beautiful wedding on 100 Layer Cake. The bride’s gown was so enchanting I had to check out more.
