Wedding, Set, Go






We are now mid-wedding season, and I found myself attracted to a classic shapes this season, that is totally new for me. For the last few years, it was all about gowns when it came to wedding-dressing (two examples of stunning gowns I’ve worn to some fabulous weddings: 1, 2). I loved how glamorous I felt in a floor sweeping gown while twirling on a dance floor. But this season, and it may be the humid temperatures, I’ve found myself tempted by shorter silhouette for formal engagements.

Typically I wouldn’t wear a short dress to a formal event, as it never really felt as elegant as I wanted to, until I laid eyes on this silk embroidered shift dress from Stella McCartney. It was love and first sight. From the colour to the floral details, not to mention the pockets, it truly was like nothing else I have in my wardrobe and knew I had to have it.

I paired this beauty with my favourite vintage choker and the matching earrings I picked up at The One of a Kind Craft Show a few seasons ago, and was absolutely in love with this ensemble.

Cropped Elegance






Fashion Magazine asked their style panel what we will be wearing to this summer’s weddings. Working in the bridal industry for the past two years, I’ve developed the need to try to break the rules and pull inspiration from the fashion industry and bring it into the bridal world. That being said, I couldn’t be expected to wear a simple little black dress to any bridal affair, but rather I challenge myself to pull off this past award-season’s hottest look—The Cropped Top, done formally.  Here is what I told Fashion Magazine this week.

Aisle Style







Fashion Magazine asked the Style Panel what to wear for the upcoming wedding season. Here is what I said. This season is going to be super fun, as I celebrate my own engagement to my sexy photographer Trevor Negin, who popped the question in March after 6 years of dating. Those outfits are likely going to be hard to find and the search begins with numbered days before the first event. Wish me luck
