How BEAUTIFUL are these layers and layers of ruffles tulle? I also love the nude nails and black clutch. So beautiful! If anyone knows the designer, please let me know!

The Royal Wedding Fashion Review

Tuesday, May 3rd, 2011

Kate Middleton made a beautiful, elegant, ultra romantic bride! Her wedding gown and reception gown, both by Sarah Burton, the creative director of British fashion house Alexander McQueen, exuded an understated romantic elegance. She was so gorgeous! I love that her style obviously reflected her own taste.  Any modern day bride could pull elements from her look- lace, soft romantic hair, understated tiara, or the in season flowers, for their own wedding. Above the fashion, she truly seemed happy and gracious toward the attention she received. Just lovely, and so adorable too!

Her Cartier tiara (on loan), was made in 1936 and was purchased by The Duke of York (King George VI) for his Duchess (The Queen Mother). Queen Elizabeth received the tiara from her mother on her 18th birthday. The sparkling tiara held Middleton’s transparent veil, made of ivory silk tulle with a trim of hand-embroidered flowers.

I love tiaras and headbands just as much as any Princess! Our Night at the Museum Headband is one of my favorites… it’s not quite as tall as Kate’s, which makes it a bit more accessible to most brides. Oh… and it’s made with Swarovski crystal, rather than diamonds!

Are you planning on styling your look after Kate? Certainly, everyone should wear her smile. Beautiful!

 

Custom Work – Aquamarine Florence

I really LOVE this custom Florence Hair Ornament I just completed for Danielle from NY. I added an insane amount of aquamarine crystal to the basic design of Florence, creating a more clustered look that sparkles so beautifully. Danielle is placing the piece vertically along a messy bun and pairing it with this gorgeous Vera Wang gown. I love custom work- it’s so much fun to go through the process of talking with a customer about their vision, add my thoughts, brainstorm, and create!

Amsale's Very Romantice Juliette Gown & New Naugi

Monday, August 10th, 2009

My love for Amsale goes back a decade or maybe even more. Then I was taken in by the glamorous gowns (and ads) and the romanticism they invoked.  I bought a beautiful pale ivory Amsale gown for my wedding several years ago, but ended up selling it and wearing another gown. Indecisive? Yes! I still look forward to seeing the new Amsale designs every season. I am in love with the bodice detail on the gown below aptly named Juliette and was just too happy to pair it with one of our new fall designs!

After designing the Rosaline Hair Ornament below I envisioned it paired with a flowing romantic gown like this Amsale. It’s a perfect compliment to the floral embroidered bodice detail. I almost attached this design asymmetrically to a headband…I couldn’t decide, still might. It looks very chic worn in flat in front.  For me there are always too many possibilities (thus buying more than one wedding gown, three in fact)!

A Real Bride – Yea Jin & Pascal – Married in San Francisco

Thursday, July 9th, 2009

I had the pleasure of working with the beautiful and sweet Yea Jin this past spring on a custom version of the French Garden Headband. The result is now available online as the French Garden Comb and has become a customer favorite, thanks Yea Jin! Her gown by 3.1 Phillip Lim is a breathtaking modern style infused with romantic ruffles fluttering across a daring back. Below you’ll see the happiness and love between Yea Jin and Pascal in the wonderful photos taken by Erika Jackson. You can see Erika’s entire blog post about Yea Jin and Pascal’s wedding here.

I was so happy that Yea Jin contacted me afterward to share her photos!

They had their reception at restaurant in San Francisco, Spruce. Judging from the above painting which makes my heart yearn I’d say it was probably a pretty cool place to celebrate. What a gorgeous painting and shot!

And finally a shot of the gorgeous hair rolled loose and romantic and finished with our beautiful French Garden Comb. Thanks again Yea Jin for trusting in the outcome of the comb and for sharing the photos of your wonderful day!
