A little fresh air.

I was honored to contribute wardrobe styling to a recent editorial for Project Wedding. The lovely and talented Chelsea (of Frolic! blog fame) orchestrated the photo shoot beautifully--who else could find a gorgeous English-style glasshouse within reach of Portland? I can only take credit for the bride's dress and pinafore--so many talented people participated. Full story and credits here.

Don't call it gray.

You may know that grey (I just really have to spell it that way--so much prettier!) is my favorite color, so I'm happy Shontee let me talk her into this lovely silvery bolero to go over her wedding dress. Embellishments are silk organza flowers, hand dyed bits of lace and embroidery, and vintage pearls and jewels.

Isn't it Lovely?

I'm pleased to announce that my 2010 bridal collection, "Heroines," will soon be available at Lovely, a new bridal boutique opening in New York City. Lanie, proud owner, has handpicked a beautiful crew of independent designers for her shop's debut, and I'm honored to be among them (that's my Oysters & Pearls dress on her home page--I'm so proud!). If you're on the hunt for a dress and within shopping distance of NY, definitely stop in. Check Lovely's website and blog for more information. As of press time, opening date is scheduled for April 3rd!

Yellow Dress No. 11

Make things by hand. For your kids (if you have 'em). Not that I wouldn't wear this myself, because I would. Via Even Cleveland.

A trailer-full of love.

Christine just sent over this lovely feature about her wedding on Style Me Pretty. Working with her on her dress was such a fun project, and I'm happy to see that the wedding was a stylish success just busting with unbuttoned, west coast charm. I also have to share this wow photo of her whole ensemble:

You've come a long way, bolero!

My ruffle bolero was recently featured in a navy-and-pink editorial in Martha Stewart Weddings. Isn't she cute? The model, I mean, although yes, little ruffle bolero, you are adorable. Shown with Simple Silhouettes Tulip dress.
