We have a confession to make…the Bella Girls LOVE clothes. And not just dresses! We love skirts, pants, jumpsuits, chunky knits, sky high heels, and a great pair of denim. So when all the Bella Girls come together at Bridal Market in NYC, you know we’re all getting ready to walk our own runway with some killer outfits.
We got some major fashion inspo from a few Bella owners and stylists who can put together an outfit quicker than you can say “Will you be my bridesmaid?!”
Scroll down and get serious closet envy.
1. Travel Outfit – Mary Kendall, Owner of Bella Mobile
Mary Kendall: I am always on the go so I have to make my outfits both fashionable and functional. For traveling to market, I kept things neutral with my daily uniform of a black flowy top, olive green skinnies, and black pointed toe flats. I threw my hair half up and ALWAYS bring my traveling essentials…coffee, sunnies, and bridal magazines! After a long day of airports and flights, I’ll unclip my hair and spritz with dry shampoo, ditch the flats for a chunky heel, transfer my must-haves from a bag to a foldover clutch, put on another layer of mascara and add a red lip.
2. Sunday Outfit – Meredith, Operations Coordinator at Bella New York and Bella Madison
Meredith: I like to call this look ‘Easy, Breezy Autumn Chic!’ As glamorous as bridal market is, it requires a lot of walking, talking and trying on dresses (which is a workout in itself!) The layers allow for the unpredictable October weather so I can add or subtract as needed. I wanted this look to have an autumn ease about it – I’m loving this marsala colored dress, the wrap makes it easy to change in and out of (and to eat and drink in!), and the booties are so comfortable for walking.
3. Monday Outfit – Samantha, Owner of Bella Austin
Samantha: I’m a big fan of mixing high price investment pieces with great steals and more practical items. Living in a pretty casual city, I am always looking for pieces that can be dressed up or dressed down, like the t-shirt dress that’s so big this year. This particular one has rouching and a zipper detail that make it sexier and more upscale than your standard little jersey number. I added a boucle and faux leather jacket to keep me cozy during the breezy autumn days in New York. These booties were the result of a “treat yo’self” moment while working for Ralph Lauren and they’re seriously gorg and ladylike, and take this ensem to the next level. The perfect-sized tote bag to carry my iPad and Bella notepad is Neiman Marcus brand, which I adore because they’re almost all vegan leather – aka cruelty free and reasonably priced! I love the mix of hard and soft elements in this relatively simple look that could take me seamlessly from daytime appointments with designers to a happy hour in the Big Apple!
4. Monday Night Outfit – Jeana Lee, Owner Bella Birmingham
Jeana Lee: I mean, who doesn’t love an excuse to get dressed up?! After a long weekend of running around the city meeting with designers, I’m ready to celebrate! I LOVE to wear color and currently this chartreuse/neon yellow color is at the top of my list. I think this Milly dress will be a fun choice for the final night parties. I’ll throw on my favorite Zara leather jacket for when the sun goes down, and pair it with this cool oversized studded clutch. Cheers!
