Shop For Unique Dresses Outside The Box!

with 2 comments

To find a dress that’s completely unique”, Denise of Bellis Studios says, “try thinking outside of the box…that is, big box stores!”.  Check out these beauties she found, just on the home page of Etsy this morning:

Denise has also shared with me this Maggie Sottero Kiri wedding dress that fellow blogger Hello Banjo is selling on Craigslist.  It’s stunning and I just love the vintage look it flaunts!  If you’re interested, get information on her dress by clicking HERE.  Here are a few pictures of the actual dress posted on her ad:

Here is what the Maggie Sottero dress actually looks like on.  Head over to Maggie Sottero  to see a larger view:

So there you have it, beautifully unique dresses you can find – just by looking outside the box!  Several of these dresses shown above are also very affordable, which in my book is always a plus.  Especially with the way our economy is right now…why not save a little dough?  Thanks for sharing these with us, Denise!  Happy shopping, everyone!

If you’re like me, you might trying to hold onto this gorgeous Indian Summer we’re having.  As we prepare for the cold winter ahead, why not dream of warm, sunny days?  After all, many of you might already be planning your Spring or Summer soiree, so yes – let’s dream.  In gorgeous, warm whites!  Winter brides, if you’re still looking for inspiration, this is for you too…only I might suggest wearing a coat.

Take a look at these beautiful real wedding images from the Cosmo Bride’s “My Day, My Way” articles:

Happy planning!

Isaac Mizrahi Fabulous Dress Review…

with 2 comments

…Rock This Dress Whether You’re A Bridesmaid Or A Guest!

Lately I’ve been having great luck with ordering dresses from Target, designed by Isaac Mizrahi.  I swear the man stepped foot on this planet with our exact measurements in mind, to create a line of dresses to just fit us perfectly.  I love this dress, it feels like it was made just for me!  Here’s the dress I ordered to wear to my friend’s wedding last night, which I originally decided to get not just by how cute it looked, but because of the rave reviews:

Embroidered Lace Dress in Ebony by Isaac Mizrahi For Target – $39.99:

It also comes in 3 other colors:


This sheath, fitted dress is covered in quality Raschel lace details, with a tiered, satiny sash wrapped around the empire waist – which works great with most any body type!  The v-neck tastefully shows off your “girls”, making it very sexy.  Plus, it comes with a soft inner lining and is extremely comfortable to wear!

A gorgeous dress, it would be awesome for bridesmaids – not only is it fabulous, but it’s so affordable too!  Once I get the pictures back from the wedding, I’ll see if I can post a picture of me wearing it.  Thanks, Isaac Mizrahi!

Victoria’s Secret Bridesmaid Dresses!

News To Me…

Is this news to you too?  Maybe we have just been stuck in “bridal shop” la-la-land too long.   Either way, we know about it now.  They say you “learn something new every day”, isn’t that the truth!

No worries, we are working our way out of la-la-land, deario cheerios.  Together.  It’s time to start opening our minds, and opening doors to not only the stores inside of our malls, but those wonderful family-owned fashion boutiques we love so much too!

Check out what the lovely V.S. has to offer for your bridesmaids by clicking HERE.  Keep in mind though, when shopping else ware, it doesn’t have to be marked “bridesmaid” dress in order to become one.

Alternative Styles…

…For Unconventional Bridesmaids!

Who says your bridesmaids have to dress up in fashions from bridal stores alone?  Many brides today are looking outside the bridal boutiques and heading to their favorite stores to dress their fabulous girls.  Why not? 

It’s a great way to truly show off your style and personality – you do it with all your other wedding details, so why limit your style choices when it comes to shopping for your maids?  Get creative!

I adore the new 2008 fall line by Zac Posen.  He has such a way with creating girly and feminine designs.  I could definitely see these being strutted down a high-style wedding aisle!


To see more of his amazing designs, go to!
