Brooches, Bows, & Vera Wang

Friday, February 27th, 2009

I was on the Knot looking for an example of a wedding gown that beautifully incorporated the use of a brooch when I found found this strapless Vera Wang. Look at the draping of the smooth satin on the bodice and the way it’s pulled together by a brooch (a bow no less)! It’s minimal and modern  with a feminine accent courtesy of the perfect, dainty bow.

I believe it’s the same brooch on both dresses used in two different ways. Placement is everything and should always be deliberate and well though out. That’s why I love Vera Wang- the details are always immaculate and thoughtfully placed.

For the Love of a Bow- The J.Crew Silk Gala Clutch

Thursday, February 26th, 2009

I’ve caught a bit of “bow” fever lately! You can’t look at fashion right now without seeing some version of a bow, whether on a beautiful dress at the Oscar’s, on shoes, hair jewelry, and this gorgeous silk clutch by J.Crew. The Silk Gala Clutch won my heart when I saw the sumptuous drooping bow made with rich luxurious silk! And look at the fresh, clean, spring colors- you can take the ivory along to your wedding or take the tea rose out to dinner. Why thank you J.Crew, I love it!

I have a few new ideas in still in the beginning stage for bows translated into what else, but hair jewels! For one I’m thinking a loose bow with tails that linger down and wrap the side of a large chignon. It’s a lovely thought right now- I’ll share when it comes to life!

Oscars, Emeralds, & Angelina Jolie

Monday, February 23rd, 2009

Okay so yes, I look at the gowns on Oscar night, who doesn’t look and longingly wish for a reason to get decked out in such an opulent fashion, but what I am really looking at are the jewels. Angelina Jolie and her jewels are my favorite from last night and to be honest I don’t see anyone topping it for some time to come (at least in my book)!

I tuned in late as I was watching Ratatouille with a favorite little boy, and I caught a glimpse of green flash away from the screen. It was Angelina Jolie wearing jewels by Lorraine Schwartz and the over sized emeralds were instant love for me. Paired with a basic black Elie Saab floor length gown which created a gorgeous silhouette, simply pulled back long dark locks and natural makeup, the 115 carat emerald teardrop earrings and 65 carat ring were a stand out. Bold, simple, sexy and a definite departure from the overall muted color palette of other stars last night!

Jenny Packham Sorrento Gown- a Sensuous Goddess

Friday, February 20th, 2009

I’ve come to love the designs of British designer Jenny Packham. Her bridal collections are revered for the traditional styling layered with lush expensive fabrics, sensuous shapes, and jewelry-like embellishments. The Sorrento Gown is a current favorite of mine- it has a vintage glam beauty and art deco referenced embellishments.  Look at the way the fabric puddles onto the ground- luxurious, beautiful, goddess-like- I just simply love it!

I mentioned a few days ago that I would like to see the new Florence Hair Ornament paired with one of her dresses because it reminds me of her eye for detail in its curls and curves. I don’t think this dress needs anything else- just two or three of our Florence for the defining accent on one gorgeous dress!

New This Week- Curls & Curves

Tuesday, February 17th, 2009

A curl here, a twist there, beautiful lines- the Florence Hair Ornament is my pick of the week for new items. Wear in the front and off to the side for a vintage 20’s feel, or in back accenting a twist of hair. This might sounds kind of over the top, but two, even three of this design arranged together is really beautiful and very dramatic!

I’ll be back tomorrow to show you one of my favorite dress designs of the season by glamorous UK designer Jenny Packham. It’s the dress I would pair with Florence (or 3 Florences)!

Enjoy!
