More Q&A’s from Bridal Market!!
What dress are you ordering for yourself? What will you wear it with/for?
e. & k.
Oh…so many! I already have a LulaKate, a Jenny Yoo and Ivy & Aster on order. And ANY dress from this capsule of eight by Kirribilla will be welcome in my closet!!!
Unfortunately, I cannot limit myself to just one dress! I picked up Ceremony’s Amber dress as well as LulaKate’s Tamara in the Blue Meadow, Farrow (I already have the McCants in black shantung….LOVE!), Arrington in the Garden Stripe, and Brooke. Can’t wait! I usually wear a dress in the store so I’ll most likely wear these to work with my Jimmy Choo nude wedges….the most comfortable footwear for long Saturdays!

Now this is a long list! I love the new LulaKate stripes – The garden stripe is perfect for work before you transfer it to a fun party with fabulous accessories and maybe a bright contrasting pair of chromatic shoes. They also have a New Years Eve stripe that is light and flowy and would be perfect for, the name says it all, New Years Eve or a fun night out on the town with a sharp blazer or leather jacket!

How can I resist a lace shift dress? Can’t wait to wear the Jenny Yoo Tibi dress in dusty mauve to my friend’s wedding this Spring.

Highlight from market?
We continue to be excited by the fashion forward trends bridesmaid designer’s are coming out with. Each season it seems designers push themselves to deliver on all the latest and hottest trends in ready to wear. Loved all the illusion necklines we saw from Saja and Love Lane. Excited for cut-outs, exposed zippers and dramatic backs from Jim Hjelm Occasions. And, new fabrications like tulle and lace were HUGE for Amsale, Monique Lhuillier and Jenny Yoo this season!
There are too many to pick one! We are so lucky to be working with so many generous vendors. Love Lane kicked off the weekend by hosting a bowling party. So much fun! Amsale hosted dinner for us on Sunday night, followed by a dance party! Finally, attending the Martha Stewart Party with my fellow Bella Owners.

As always, seeing the Bella’s. It’s so much fun (and informative) to catch up with other owners. These ladies are the best! Picture below is at the Martha Stewart Weddings party, courtesy of Mary Kendall Butler (Mobile, AL).
