For many years now, the wedding dress has always been in my mind- the dress. It’s the dress you hope your grandchildren admire in tastestfully framed photos lining your mantle. It’s an embodiment of love, and a symbol of utter joy to most. Tossing in these very iconic ideologies on bridal gowns, AND someone who works with couture fashion everyday and you have a recipe for a lot of fittings. View Full Post

This past Tuesday, I was finally able to experience something I have been wanting to do for several years now. I had diner at the Versace mansion. It even sounds dreamy to type. I always wondered if it would be like that one episode on the Kardashians (anyone remember this) and to my surprise, it was pretty similar. For a more elaborate tour I suggest you watch this. 🙂 View Full Post
Getting Married at Saint Patrick’s Cathedral!
Hello everyone!! It feels like a lifetime ago that I posted and a lot of you have been wondering where in the world I’ve wandered off to this time. Well as most of you know I’m getting married to my sweet Bren-whom I’ve been with for 5 years now. I’ve been elbows deep in color swatches, work, bridal magazines, and more. I should add that during this whole time I’ve had a smile plastered on my face.
I have several updates for everyone. View Full Post
What I’ve learned living in New York City style. Growing up in North Carolina I always felt the need to try to fit in, and dress in a certain way so I wouldn’t stand out at all. In New York, I definitely feel comfortable dressing any way because everyone is so open minded. It’s one of my favourite things about the city. You can do anything, and become anyone. It’s a beautiful place to live and it’s progressive. I will say the same for the south, but NYC is definitely some ways ahead.
1.) If you want to go shopping, get your hair blown out, or order Thai tea..you can do all of that at 3 am here. It sounds strange (and unnecessary) but I’m discovering that NYC is called the city that never sleeps for a reason.
2.) The best stores are tucked away and not as easy to find. Chelsea, and Tribeca are both neighborhoods that have many tucked aways stores that a lot of people don’t know about. I also suggest going into a store that looks really interesting to you. Almost always, your gut feeling is right and you’ll find the most beautiful pieces randomly.
3.) Trends dominate more so here than other places. However, unique outfits are also prominent. It’s refreshing to live here and see so many distinct people and styles.
4.) New Yorkers are happy to help you. If you ask if a store has been picked over, or if a sample sale is worth the wait, you’ll be surprised how honest (and often times kind) most people are. There’s there stereotype that New Yorkers are rude, and excessively aggressive people that hate everyone. While I agree that New Yorkers are aggressive, I definitely don’t think they are rude, and insinuating that will cause one to be very rude to you. Just be polite and you’ll be surprised how far that will get you.
