Last night’s Oscar red carpet saw some definite hits and misses. Okay, I’m going to get snarky here for a mo’. In my opinion, the major miss of the night was Anne Hathaway’s worst dressed trifecta in Prada: pointy nipples, too much side boob, and ill placed jewelry. Sure, there were others that were disheveled and dumpy, but I guess I expect more from Anne and the side boob trend is super tacky.
However, there were several ladies that stood out in trendsetting wedding worthy inspired frocks that I just have to show you. Check out the board below for the style I feel can easily translate in to gorgeous bridal looks and then keep scrolling for some current bridal designs that speak to their Oscar counterparts: Amy Adams with her feathered ball gown by Oscar de la Renta, Zooey Deschanel with her vintage inspired floral embroidered frock, Shaun Robinson in a crisp black and white gown, Jessica Chastain in her gold classic Hollywood styled gown by Giorgio Armani, Charlize Theron in a beautifully structured white peplum dress, Kristen Stewart’s lace sheath with a tulle train by Reem Acra, Alicia Vikander in an on-trend long sleeved gown by Elie Saab, Kristen Chenoweth in Tony Ward, and winner of the Best Actress Award…Jennifer Lawrence in Dior Haute Couture.

Happy Thanksgiving all! Given that I am the turkey and gravy queen in the family, my commentary will be short and sweet. I’ve got some gorgeous winter bridal looks for you today. Just one note: think frosty instead of glittery. Glitter can often mimic blemishes in photos. So, talk to your photographer about your bridal look before the wedding and see what he or she recommends with regard to your winter wedding look and how it will appear on camera. I hope you all have a lovely day and thank you for reading!

Well, I’ve spent my weekend scouring the net for pics of this weekend’s shows at Bridal Market NY. Let me just say that there are some fabulous hits and some seriously scary misses. When all is said and done, I will have a complete rap up, but for now, these are a few of my faves thus far:
I am super duper excited to show you that even us stretched lobed brides can find gorgeous bridal ear wear. I’m currently at 1/2″ and working toward 1″ all due to Arksendeavors. When I first got engaged, I knew that my selection of ear jewelry would be just about nil. I searched high and low for a pair of wedding worthy plugs via my go to shops and none had anything that could stand up to my Mom’s triple strand of pearls. I had resigned myself to naked ears on my wedding day, that is until I came across Arksendeavors.
Arksendeavors is run by Amanda, who started experimenting with resin to create special occasion plugs for those of us with modified lobes. When I took a peek at Amanda’s shop, I was so excited and relieved that someone out there was thinking of us non-conformist brides. In fact, I am actually stretching my ears further, because I now know I can find beautiful plugs that will complement my Mom’s pearls.
From pearls, to crystals and cameos, Arksendeavors has your lobes covered!
Here’s the latest and greatest from the Etsy Virtual Bridal Show Team. Enjoy your weekend!
