Happy Holidays

Photobucket

Seasons Greetings to all! May your home be filled with the joy of family and friends this holiday season. I apologize for the light or non existent posting but it was a busy busy week in Milan with many Christmas gatherings and last minute shopping. Now we're off to the states for more Christmas and New Years festivities, although that little blizzard has us stranded in London, oh what a shame, guess I have to go shopping! Hope all east coasters are enjoying the winter snow storm. Posting will pick up next week....
stay tuned...

WEDDING STYLE: Grey Winter Bride

Photobucket
Brrrrr, it's cold outside, with snow flurries everywhere....so, so pretty
Today's wedding style is inspired by the beautiful snowfall here in Milano.
Elegant and simple bridal attire with a color palette of ivory and grey paired with a seasonal bridal bouquet of Hyacinths, Paper Whites, Wax Flower, Dusty Miller.
For a splash of color, you can never go wrong with a little red lipstick. I recommend this shade by laura mercier.

ACCESSORIES: Winter Outerwear for the Bride

Stylish accessories for the winter bride....

Little winter bride's, the chilly winter season has arrived and it's time to think about your outerwear.  Those designer heels might have to be replaced for a moment as you step outside into the winter landscape for your photographs, so how about some shearling hunter boots? Here are a few of my favorite picks of stylish layering for your bridal attire....

LITTLE WHITE DRESS: Cymbeline

Back from our little holiday in Paris and what a beautiful trip it was! If you're planning a European honeymoon, Paris is a must! It was my second time there and I don't think I have ever been to a more beautiful city! Winter time just makes it that more magical, cozy and romantic and I'm so happy to live so close, only an hour and a half flight from Milano. Can't wait to get back........

I was mesmerized by everything....and even stumbled upon some pretty little wedding dresses by Cymbeline

LITTLE WHITE DRESS: Zac Posen

 
Is this not a stunner?
Glamorous, cream silk dress with a pleated mermaid skirt that flares from the mid thigh.
This silhouette is to die for.  I'm having visions of a evening winter wedding art deco style.....

I believe, Zac Posen is a genius.
