One of the biggest trends on the Oscar's red carpet last Sunday? Deep v-necks on those spectacular...Read more

The Oscars were a testament to classic male elegance with few participants deviating too far off course. The men wore black. The men wore shawl lapels. The men looked great. The blue tuxedo craze peeked its head out here and there, but it appears to be on the way out according to the Hollywood Gods of fashion.                 

This year was mostly black tie and black tux.                     ...Read more

New wedding obsession! I am head over heels for the scalloped details I am seeing on everything wedding as of late. Scalloped lace edging has long been a pretty little detail on wedding dresses, but scalloped detailing over the entire dress?! Or how about frosted scalloped detailing on the wedding cake, or edges on your tableware? It’s the perfect way to go a little retro, a glam way to pull off an art deco vibe and just the sweetest little detail to soften the edges on anything and everything for your wedding.

This dress just has wow-factor scalloped

When you’re the bride, you get to sport some serious bling on that pretty manicured ring finger of yours, but the latest trend is giving your besties a chance to shine on your wedding day, too! Enter the blinging bridesmaid dress trend – wedding gowns that sparkle and shine in the very “now” metallics. I’ve got to say – I am a big fan! Bridesmaids dresses have gone a bit more neutral in color these past few years, and I think that adding some glitter to your gals is the perfect way to make them stand out and look a little more glam. Plus, just look at these

Grey + Yellow Wedding

Hello, sunshine! I must admit…I’ve had a crush on the grey and yellow color combo for quite a while now, and I just can’t seem to move on. My future wedding colors? I sure do hope so. Think summery yet sophisticated. Soft and lovely, without being too girly. It’

When it comes to personalizing a wedding party outfit, it seems like the gals have all the fun. We can accessorize our hair, wear head to toe jewelry, paint our nails (practically an art form these days), wear the cutest shoes around – you name it. When you’re a dude, you’re a little more limited. Sure, some grooms are all about throwing on a cowboy hat and boots for that rustic wedding or going with an unexpected color or pattern for the vest and tie, but more times than not, personalizing your tuxedo as a groomsman has to veer towards the more subtle

Sometimes the only thing harder than spelling boutonniere is deciding what to choose for yours. Traditionally you have boutonnieres for the groom, the groomsmen, the fathers of the bride and groom, the ushers, and anyone else you want to give a little special something to on the big day, such as your grandfather – but, that doesn’t mean that the boutonniere itself has to be traditional! This is an opportunity for brides and grooms to think outside of the box and dream up a boutonniere oozing with personality. And, it doesn’t have to be matchy-matchy with the

Have you heard the latest? Cascading bouquets have come back into fashion! These gorgeous bouquets just overflowing with flowers were big when our moms (and grandmas!) tied the knot, but we haven’t been seeing them carried down the wedding aisles in a good long while. Love to see that it’s all changing! These are just the epitome of romantic and are downright beauties, and they add so much to the overall wedding look. Why the change in the bouquet trend? I think we can chalk it up to the fact that we’ve all fallen in love with vintage, and these blooms are

The hottest look for summer weddings? Daring to bare a little more…up there!

Seeing rising hemlines is nothing new in the bridal world, with minis, tea length and even hi-lo hemlines becoming the nontraditional norm for sashaying down the aisle. But, with hemlines at their highest on the skirts, the bridal world has moved on to cropping the tops! Two-piece wedding gowns have always been around (if not the most popular among the engaged crowd), but now designers are upping the ante with a little less fabric and a lot more skin up there, bringing a 60’s
