Elie Saab 2013 Bridal Collection


Just in time for spring, Elie Saab for Pronovias has a bridal collection for 2013 which makes our hearts skip a beat! Even after watching the runway show, we are still dreaming of delicate lace, beaded appliques, and layers upon layers of organza and tulle. The theme of this collection was “the garden of dreams”, and each dress that came down the runway is like a beautiful, handcrafted flower! This collection offers brides many options for their big day- sleeveless, short sleeve, long sleeve, and our favorite, cap sleeves with a beaded, detailed shoulder (see the first image below- the neckline and shoulders are to die for)! Most dresses were paired with a long, cascading veil on the runway, but we can also imagine these dresses being worn with a short birdcage veil for a sweet spring wedding.

Wedding Day Inspiration from the Oscars 2013


Although the Oscars have come and gone, we are still having visions of all the beautiful gowns we saw last night! We saw so many dresses and trends that are great inspiration for our spring brides looking for the perfect wedding dress!

We saw many dresses with beautiful, embellished busts- sequins, lace, or florals at the top of the dress are a great way to add a statement to a simple, classic gown.

One new trend we saw on the red carpet was a necklace worn backwards. Whether a thin strand of diamonds or a chunky, statement necklace, draping the necklace down the back rather than the front would look beautiful with any wedding dress and updo!

Full skirts were also a big hit on the red carpet, which has always been a favorite trend for brides when choosing their wedding dress. This trend continues to be big in 2013!

As far as men’s fashion, we saw many men wearing sleek suits and crisp black bow ties- this classic look is great for any handsome groom on his wedding day.

New York Fashion Week 2013 Trends

New York Fashion Week 2013 has just wrapped up, but we still can’t stop thinking about all the beautiful fashion and beauty trends! Among the top trends we saw on the runways, we’re still brainstorming how to incorporate the top three trends of fall 2013 in our wardrobes- leopard print, leather, and houndstooth.  Whether mens or womens fashion, clothing or accessories, these trends are easy for anyone to incorporate in your closet for the upcoming fall season. Pops of leopard in an accessory is an easy way to incoroprate the pattern into your everyday wear. Buying one great leather jacket is an investment piece, and a staple you will have in your closet for years to come. Although houndstooth may be overwhelming at first, pairing it with a solid top and shoe is a great way to introduce yourself to the trend.

As far as beauty trends, we saw matte nail polish on many different runways! Buy a matte top coat from brands like OPI or Essie, and apply it on top of your favorite nail color.

Naeem Khan Pre-Fall 2013 Collection


We are in lust for Naeem Khan’s Pre-Fall 2013 Collection, which he says is focused more on “dressy day” looks as opposed to his gorgeous evening wear. From short cocktail dresses to jaw-dropping, elegant sequin floor-length creations. Naeem Khan  is a designer known for his graceful, couture designs that have been worn by celebrities such as Beyonce, Carrie Underwood, and First Lady Michelle Obama! If you have the cash and want to stand out, consider getting your hands on a Naeem Khan dress. Perfect for brides who want to change out of their wedding dress during their reception or to don on your bridesmaids.


Hellooo New Year’s Eve dress!


This is what our modern-day Cinderella Disney Princess would wear.


Such a divine red evening wear/ formal gown for an exquisite holiday party or wedding.



We are so excited about these Pantone 2013 emerald colored gowns!

Earth Angel Editorial Wedding Inspiration


We came across these gorgeous pictures from Ryan McGinley for W Magazine’s January 2013 issue with model, Daria Werbowy. The editorial is titled, “Earth Angel” and we loving the look of the Ukrainian Canadian model, Daria, styled against the different earthy backdrops. This “earth angel” theme would be a great inspiration idea for a wedding! Think of the color combos of red, green, yellow, and white against textures like chiffon, silk, and tulle. Thank you to Fashion.net for sharing these photos.



So dreamy and ethereal! Perfect for a hipster bride in Los Angeles or a beachy bride in San Diego.

This is fall glamour to the max! The mix of autumn reds, yellows, and oranges, makes a for fiery and dramatic wedding look.

This is shot is just amazing with the lace dress and yellow tree leaves.

See the rest of the shoot at Fashion.net.
