  • Wedding Tips 101 - Dresses and Accessories

    Are you starting to plan your wedding? Shopping for your ideal wedding dress or bridesmaid dresses? I can tell you from experience that planning a wedding is one of the most difficult tasks one can endeavor. Just thinking about all of the thought and hard work that goes into planning a wedding can be nerve wracking. Let me set your mind at ease, there are very many ways to MAKE IT A FUN ENJOYABLE EXPERIENCE.

    Do not get discouraged when you try on a dress that is “your size” but does not fit as you had expected. All formal wear has a tendency to run smaller than your everyday clothing. Another thing you will need to keep in mind when shopping for your dress is to identify your body type. Knowing your body type will allow you to find the ideal dress that will accentuate your figure in all the right places, and if you’re in the market for bridesmaid dresses this will help you find the right dress style that will work for your entire party.body typesMAKE IT FUN: Plan a girls day/night out. Grab your bridesmaids and Maid/Matron of Honor (MOH) and hit the town. Pick a boutique or store, call ahead if needed and try on as many dresses you can! When you find your DREAM dress, you will feel it. If after trying on 10, 15 or even 30 dresses and you do not find your dress then have no worries, you can always plan another girls day/night! Don't settle, this is your special day you deserve a special dress to commemorate the occasion. Continue reading

    Alyce 3674

    Alyce 3674

    For a super chic look, we love Alyce 3674. This dazzling short dress is covered in gorgeous stones and sparkling beadwork all over the bodice and neckline. A ruched bodice and the perfect layered tulle skirt complete the look.

    These dresses are gorgeous looks for many semi-formal and formal occasions. Other than Homecoming, these looks couldn't be more perfect for a Sweet 16, Bat Mitzvah, or even attending a wedding.

  • Kendall Jenner on the 2015 Tony Awards Red Carpet

    Last night was all about celebrating the theatre, because it was The American Theatre Wing's 2015 Tony Awards! The show was great from beginning to end, with mini performances from so many popular plays, and two hilarious and very talented hosts: Kristin Chenoweth and Alan Cumming. Of course, though, our favorite part was the red carpet! And, we were extra excited to see one of our favorite celebrities walking the Tony red carpet in style: Kendall Jenner!

    Kendall forewent the traditional gown for a sleek and sexy Calvin Klein cocktail dress. The dress was peach colored and featured long sleeves and and open back - a perfect way to show off just the right amount of skin.

    To get a similar look for your next semi-formal or formal event, there are three dresses that we're loving.

    Jovani 9693

    Jovani 9693For a very similar cocktail dress that hits all of the major points of Kendall's Tony look - long sleeves, open back, high neckline, and textured fabric - go with Jovani style 9693. The multi colored sequin print on this dress will certainly have you stand out in the crowd just as much as Kendall Jenner did on the Tony's red carpet.

    BG Haute G3304

    BG Haute G3304

    For a little bit of a different take on Kendall's look, we love BG Haute style G3304. This pink cocktail dress features long sleeves and an open back like Kendall's dress, but instead of a high neckline, choose this dress to go with a v-neck and lots of beautiful sparkles.

    Mac Duggal 61823

    Mac Duggal 61823

    Or, if you love lace more than sparkles, go with Mac Duggal style 61823 to get a take on Kendall's Tony Awards dress. Featuring long sheer illusion sleeves, lace appliqué all over the arms and bodice of the dress, and sheer illusion sides, this is a dress that's definitely made to turn heads. The plunging v-neckline and open back shows off just the right amount of skin for a sexy look.

    One of the most unique parts of Kendal Jenner's Tony's dress is the texture of her dress. Whether you pick the Jovani, BG Haute, or Mac Duggal dress featured above, all three dresses will give you a totally unique texture that are sure to have you stand out just as much as Kendall's dress.

    Playful Two Pieces

    Homecoming dresses are an entirely different look when comparing them to prom. They are generally a little less formal, although some schools make it a very fancy occasion. Typically, homecoming is a gathering of students uniting as one, celebrating the beginning of a new school year and showing their school spirit in hopes of leading their team to victory. Prom is more of a coming of age pastime and memorable occasion. Of course, no homecoming game is complete without a celebratory after-party! Sherri Hill's fall line is full of two-piece dresses that are fun, yet elegant enough to be worn as formal attire. Adorned with beautiful lace and various beads, these two pieces are an on going fashion hit!
