In Love with Lace.

So it seems that lace is mucho popular with the wedding crowd, which I suppose shouldn’t be much of a shock. Lace these days doesn’t equal matronly and old fashioned as it used to! It really is a stellar accent on today’s modern gowns. Lace is also not just for the gown. I think lace cover ups and bridesmaids dresses are definitely the way to go. There is a certain elegance that only lace can give. Here are a few of my favorite gowns and whatnot.

Clockwise starting with the top middle photo: Nightcap Clothing, Badgley Mischka Bride, Vera Wang, Lazaro. I love any gown that has a surprising elegance all it’s own... and by adding an unexpected touch of lace or using lace in a different less traditional shape is so exciting!!! The gown doesn’t have to be head-to-toe lace! A gorgeous bodice with a funky silk satin skirt or a sheath style that comes across more bohemian than borderline granny will be just enough.

All of the coverups I’m showing are from BHLDN. As you know, BHLDN is my absolute favorite new wedding site. It’s brought to us by the good people at Anthropologie and it’s just the most ah-mazing place to find anything boho-vintage-chic. All of these coverups are delicate and sophisticated... definitely a piece to be remembered! I see this being a great heirloom. Styles of gowns will come and go, but a brilliant lace jacket will be timeless... and it’s nice because it can be taken off easily... so a bride of any era can get photos with it on. laceeverywhere.003 J’ADORE.

What did we learn today?!

*use lace in unexpected dress shapes and styles to keep it modern

*avoid head to toe lace for fear of it looking old school

*lace on your BM is fun and will provide great visual interest in photos.

*a lace jacket/bolero is a wonderful item to pass down to family. so think of it as an investment.

Don’t leave me standing in the cold...

I just moved to San Diego and in my mind I was moving to sunny California, wrong. Dude, Cali is COLD!!! I am absolutely shocked. That got me thinking, what about those SOCAL brides who are freezing their tail’s off in the middle of summer!?!? They need something chic to cover up with just like the winter brides. So here are some great options for both summer and winter cover ups.


Summer. clockwise from the top middle: Alex Bridal on Etsy, Elizabeth and James, Elizabeth and James, Haute Hippie.

When looking for a summer coverup, make sure to pay close attention to the weight of the fabric. You want something lightweight that will keep you warm without overheating you. Look for laces and other breathable fabrics. Be bold and even throw on a metallic blazer!! Why not!?!? It’s your wedding you can do whatever the heck you want to!!! I think the key is actually to get something that it will be possible to re-wear otherwise it’s sorta a waste.

Now let's not forget the actual freezing cold winter, you can go crazy with a winter coverup, anything from a thick silk dupioni to a fur shawl. When it’s stupid cold out a gorgeous winter white wool coat will do the job nicely, plus, you can actually wear it again. Just make sure that whatever you choose to cover up with that the shape works for your gown.

Celebrity Inspiration of the Week: Angelina Jolie’s Capelet

122010-angelina-jolie-290  So, I know Miss Angie is not always everyones fave celebrity... HELLO Chelsea Handler. Yikes. I happen to absolutely love her. I think she is insanely talented and crazy hot. I mean come on, she wins Oscars and she can kick ass, for examples see Mr. and Mrs. Smith, Salt, Wanted, etc. While promoting The Tourist overseas she rocked this fabulous capelet and this is seriously something that any cold weather bride should own. A winter cover up should be delicate, but still a substantial fabric and depending on your dresses fabric you can wear silk, fur, or even a chunky knit. I found a bunch of great options by Asos, Joie, Free People, Searle, and Rory Beca. angieinspiration.001

Don’t be afraid to rock Celeb style on your big day!!!!
