Sneak Peak

I am currently in San Francisco for our bi-ennial Bella conference. As expected, it has been a big time. Last night some of our exclusive designers graciously hosted dinner for all of us crazy girls. The food was amazing and the wine seemed.... endless.

Here is a picture of me with Carol Hannah from Project Runway. She is introducing a bridesmaids line that is feminine, fun, and affordable. I can't wait to show you. Meanwhile, feast your peepers on me and my new bestie.

Loving Navy!

Sorry for the break! I am sort of at the mercy of my brides to send me pictures, but be glad you waited because this next picture is worth it. I am a little bummed the bride isn't in the picture because she is adorable and I would have loved to see her POB dress.

Here are Katie's bridesmaids in Simple Silhouettes Aster dress - Navy shantung. I am in love with the flowers. SO pretty and perfect for a July wedding. They just add a fun pop of color. Another thing that I love is that she didn't do matchy matchy jewelry. Seriously, if I worked for Simple Silhouettes I would use this for my website. Doesn't it look like an ad?

I'm kind of obsessed with Navy these days. I have another Navy wedding that I'm hoping to have pictures from soon. In the meantime, enjoy the awesomeness of these bridesmaids. Congrats Katie! Come visit when you're in Indy!

Theta Love!

In college, I was a member of Kappa Alpha Theta. I love being a Theta. The connections I've made because of my sorority follow me where ever I go and whatever I do. One of my recent brides was a sorority sister from DePauw. She was in the class above me, so we lived in the house for 2 years together. Ashley was probably the most easy going brides that has walked through Bella's doors. Every bridesmaid got to pick her own style of LulaKate dresses. She put her bridesmaids in Black shantung & her maid of honor in Metal shantung. I took this picture from her photographers blog - Sara and Mallary. Check out pictures from the rest of her wedding. They are stunning!
Congrats again Ashley!

Pick a Color. Any Color.

I decided to add a handful of new samples to my LulaKate selection. After six months of seeing what girls liked, I saw an opportunity with adding new colors, styles, etc. The versatility of LulaKate seems to be endless & I felt like my original sample order didn't fully showcase that.

Let's talk Angela dress. So iconic to their advertising. Girls love this dress! It's so summery and fun. You can pick any three colors or you can pick two colors or you probably guessed it... you can just have one color. See what I'm saying about having a tough time deciding.

I ordered another Angela sample in dupioni silk with White, Lime, and Navy straight skirt. Hello nautical wedding cuteness. Can I keep this for myself, please?

Confession. I did order one for myself. Here she is: Night shantung with a Fog band and mini 2 pleat skirt. Confession #2. When I opened this I locked the door of Bella and shimmeyed into the dress and had an impromptu - solo fashion show. She fits like a glove and I LOVE her.

Angela's sister with straps is the Pam dress. She also gets lots of trying on. Here she is in Cream & Metal dupioni with a 2 pleat skirt. Pair the Pam & Angela dresses together to solve the some want strapless - some want straps bridesmaid issue. Done and done.

Disclaimer: I didn't realize how Tiffany's this would look. The color is called Paradise. I've seen a lot of this blue/ turquoise color , so I thought what the heck - I'll get a sample in it. Introducing Tiffany's box Pam Dress with a full skirt in shantung.

Are you finally starting to believe me when I say options are practically endless. I'm having a LulaKate trunk show next weekend. If you or any of your friends are getting married, setup an appointment and we'll play dress up.
