Ivy & Aster Spring Bridal Collection 2012

Ok, who doesn’t love Ivy & Aster? If I would have the chance to be Cinderella for a day, I would have chosen Ivy & Aster to be my fairy godmothers! Seriously!

I might be late for the ball though, I’m pretty sure I won’t be able to decide which gown I should wear! Only one word to describe all of them: GORGEOUS! ❤❤❤

Behold, Ivy & Aster’s Spring Bridal Collection 2012!

As usual, I picked out some of my favourites:

{In Bloom: pleated sweetheart bodice tops a tiered confection of layers with raw edges}

{Layer Cake: sweetheart neckline with a wide waist cummerbund tops off the layered column skirt.}

{Thoughts of Thee: back bodice curves down from the front for a flattering cinched effect.  The soft flowing skirt has light volume and a flowing train.}

I love how she mixed the details of vintage with a modern touch. Just means you can always have both in your wedding!

For prices, details and availability, you may visit {Ivy & Aster}.

Ivy & Aster dresses can be found in Australia at Studio White.

How are you lovelies? I’m so sorry for the silent treatment the last two weeks, its been quite busy around here with two weddings on-hand. My feet are killing me but nevertheless it was all worth it seeing both brides walk down the aisle. I can’t wait to get a hold of the photos so I can share them with you too!

For the meantime, today’s post is a new trend I got from GreenWeddingShoes: Ombre!


(of a fabric) Having a dyed, printed, or woven design in which the color is graduated from light to dark.

Basically it means you don’t have to choose just one tone of your favorite color to your wedding details, with this concept you can incorporate multiple tones at a time! Hooray for us girls! Alright, here’s a few photos from Versace’s Atelier Spring 2011 collection to enlighten you:

…and my personal favorite! Delicately done!

So, what do you think? Can you imagine yourself wearing an Ombré dress on your wedding day?

Enjoy the week ahead!

Elie Saab Fall/Winter 2011-2012 Couture Collection

There’s only one word to describe Elie Saab’s collection: BREATHTAKING. I’ve totally fallen in love with all the way he use fabric – appliques of tulle and velvet & the sparkling beads and crystal embelishments – he really knows how to dress a woman!

This year’s fall/winter collection features a palette of ivory, aqua marine, dark brown & dark navy blue.

I’d die to get to wear one of his creations! Nevertheless, you can always show these to your tailor friend & have it customized to your body shape & budget needs…agree? If there’s a will there’s a way!

Stay lovely! XOXO

I Do…I Don’t

Loving Washingtonian magazine’s take on the Do’s & Don’ts of saying ‘I Do’. Especially the gorgeous gowns!

Don’t play with your food / Do stay up late on your wedding night

Do something old & wear something new

Do hand write your thank you notes

Do drop rose petals down the aisle

Do assign seating for your reception

Halloween Friday

It’s Friday girlies! Let’s take it up a notch, shall we? Everyone knows you can be as dramatic as you can on Halloween. But when it comes to gowns, couture is the best way to go dramatic.

Here we go:

Cheers to another long weekend!

Johanna Johnson: Zepporah 2010 Collection

I figured we need to have something to perk up this gloomy rainy day. Aside from the usual cup of hot choco, I am dying to share these beautiful creations by none other than Johanna Johnson. Yes, I am jealous too (even with the models)…

”Inspired by the heady nights of the 20’s and 30’s  where the evening shone with crystal beads and the heady scent of violets and jasmine, these last creations may romance with elegance, sophistication and old world glamour.”

Divine, right? Now this is my fave above all!

You can drool over & be inspired with more of her collections here.

Don’t forget your umbrellas lovelies!

Met Ball 2010: Emma Watson

I got the chance to browse through this year’s Met Ball which was held last May 3 at the Metropolitan Musuem of Arts in New York (I know, I know it’s quite late =) ). There were too many gowns to pick from but one specific gown caught my attention – Emma Watson’s custom-made white one shoulder Burberry gown! Talk about good choice of designer!

Just in case, you can also check out Max Azria’s one shoulder silk gown below.
