Shoes, veils, jewelry, sashes…did I mention shoes?! We’re a little dress obsessed over here, but just like every girl in the world, a bride needs her accessories! So we’re dedicating an entire two days to decking you out. Actually, I’ve been spending WAY more than two days on it, preparing some beautiful new things to dress up your dress.

Every time I do a photo shoot, I’ll create some spur of the moment styling pieces. This time I brought along some lace, a jeweled piece here and there, and whipped up some breath-taking (if I do say so myself!) gloves. I just love how accessories bring a whole look together and really infuse an individual style. So, I have lots of new veils, sashes, and headpieces to reveal, along with two new exclusive and amazing collections from the UK.

First up, Lila has created the most amazing, hand-crafted floral wreaths exclusively for Claire Pettibone, and we are the only US stockist to offer these beauties! Made from clay-like material, they remain slightly supple (so as not to crack) and extremely light weight, and look as delicious as frosting! Hand painted either in the softest shades from nature, or with actual 24K gold leaf. Each petal is crafted by hand, so no two are exactly alike. A perfect alternative to fresh flowers, which can quickly wilt in the sun, and you’ll have this keepsake forever!

We are thrilled to welcome Emmy shoes to the castle with her stunning vintage inspired collection. I first discovered these lovelies on one of my favorite UK blogs, www.lovemydress.net and one thing led to another, and here she is! Not only are these shoes perfect for the bride, but they are so gorgeous you’ll wear them long after the big day. And don’t forget your bridesmaids, mothers, and of course yourself when you’re not a bride, but just being fabulous.

Here at our Flagship, we look forward to showing you all the loveliness, and helping you choose the dress, veil, jewels, shoes, or any combination of those for your special day. Receive a free gift with purchase (a little something for the honeymoon) and bring a friend! Appointments required for a fitting room if you would like to try on dresses…otherwise, feel free to stop in!

New Looks: Heart’s Desire

February 14th, 2014 – Comment

So much of my work is about the dream of romance, and I LOVE it! The fantasy and beauty are what inspire my soul and make life worth living. I was in a particularly enchanted frame of mind when I dreamt up this gown called Heart’s Desire. Draping this beautiful embroidery on my mannequin, I held the flower just so…and the rosebud gracefully fell across her heart. It made MY heart skip a little beat, as I couldn’t imagine a more romantic piece of clothing for a bride. I can just see the luscious bouquet, the gold wreath, the gorgeous décor that will be paired with this dress. And what a truly magical, breath-taking, unexpected way to show your devotion to the man you will marry, than to wear the symbol of eternal love on your heart.
