Best of EB: The Amazing Technicolor Dress

Originally posted on July 8, 2010

It takes a lot of courage to wear something other than white (or ivory or diamond white or pearl) on one's wedding day.  So when I saw this Stephanie James Couture confection I sort of fell in love.  It's bold not only in color, but also in cut- long in the back, short in the front? Yes, please!  Paired with a birdcage veil and lipstick red pumps, this is perfect way to make a big statement on your big day!

What do you think of this gown?  Think it's couture perfection?  Think it looks like she rolled around in a fabric remnant bin?  Let EB know in the comment section!!

Ethereal Beauty: {No. 20}

Although I couldn't re-post all the photos from this editorial- they were mildly scandalous and I don't know if my grandma will one day figure out how to go online and ready this- I am able to show you a few. Also, random side note: Rosie, the model featured, is Megan Fox's replacement in the third Transformers movie!

The other day I was strolling through my local Von Maur when these sparkly beauties caught my eye!  My love of glittery shoes goes way back to when I was 3 and was obsessed with The Wizard of Oz.  I actually told people my name was Dorothy.  And yet, for some reason my mom dressed me as the wicked witch for Halloween.  But I digress...  Basically I can't help but love anything covered in glitter and these have the added bonus of somehow still looking classy.  Because the color and style are fairly conservative, they can get away with all the sparkle.  How cute would these be on your wedding day??

I'm not sure if that pissed off look is because I'm trying to look "wicked" or if it's because I had to forgo ruby slippers in favor of green facepaint.

Best of EB: Pretty Heapieces that Aren't Tiaras...

Not that I'm hating on tiaras or anything, they can also be really pretty, but you know me, I'm all about thinking outside the box.   Here are some equally as gorgeous hair accessories that dare to be a little different...

So in keeping with the last few days' beach theme, I've put together a list of super cute options for a beach wedding!  I tried to feature a variety of styles, while still maintaining a level of beach-appropriateness.  Enjoy!

I love red hair, which is why I chose these photos for this weeks installment of Ethereal Beauty.  Sasha Pivovarova sports a fiery hue that looks amazing with her bright blue eyes and pale skin.  Enjoy!

Best of EB: Style Icon Inspiration: Silent Screen Vamps

Originally posted on May 13, 2010

Those of you who know me know I draw a huge inspiration from dark, moody color palettes and vintage styles.  So it should come as no surprise that I've created a style icon inspiration board based on silent film stars.  My final college collection was inspired by 1920's couture and Tim Burton films, so I've included two of the designs in the board because they fit so well.  I know the mood is very dark and not for everyone's taste, but I find it gothically romantic and fitting with current trends (vampires anyone?)  Part of what appeals to me about this era is that it was one of the first times in history where women were finally allowed some freedom in their appearance, as well as their attitudes.  Unfortunately the great depression hit and everyone had to reign in their newfound attitude and style to fit the somber mood of the day.  But for a short while, these female were able to let their hair down (or in most cases, just chop it off) .  They were confident bad girls and they owned it!
