I love everything about it--the light, the flower-scented air, the riot of new green everywhere. So inspired to create!

One great dress.

So honored to have my Siren dress featured over on the Lovely blog this week! I love the stylish details they chose to accompany the dress, especially the fresh-right-this-minute pink and pistachio palette. See the whole inspiring feature here.

The red dress.

Hours of sketching, draping, gathering, pick-stitching, and assembling...

and the Pohutukawa dress is finally done. It was whisked off to a remote mountain location for a photo shoot yesterday...can't wait to see this fiery frock amid the ice and snow!

Thank you, San Francisco {next up, Seattle}!

I had so much fun at And Something Blue this weekend--thanks to all the lovely 2013 brides who came to play dress-up (and let me snap photos...two "Tempest twins" here). Thanks also to Danielle, Jill, Tiarra and Lisa for hosting me! This weekend I'll be at The Dress Theory in Seattle with my complete 2013 collection. If you're a Seattle or BC bride, I'd love to see you!

The House of Mirth.

This wedding is a sentimental favorite for me. When Kim told me she was getting married at The Mount, the house Edith Wharton built in the Berkshire hills of Massachusetts, my inner literary nerd could hardly contain herself. Floating on a cloud of inspiration, I convinced her that her dress absolutely had to be made from some very special, authentic, fragile hundred-year-old lace. Black lace. Ivory silk underlay, column silhouette--very Edwardian. Very Wharton, if you will. Kim was, in every way, a complete joy to work with, and the dress couldn't have suited her better. I feel honored to have such a lovely client. Best wishes, Kim and Dan!
