Looks We Love #1

Here is the first entry for my new blog feature, "Looks We Love". The idea is to show real people in complete bridal ensembles to help give you inspiration and a sense of some of the wonderful bridal looks available at September's Bride.

This gown by Casablanca features a gorgeous bodice with a beaded halter neckline and a full, gathered skirt, accented with a small, soft bow at the front waist. I am a curvy girl, and I think this gown really puts the curves in proportion, while the halter neckline brings the eye up.

For accessories, I am wearing a diminutive mother-of-pearl necklace with matching earrings by L. Stone Designs. The smaller size of the necklace and earrings keeps the accessories from competing with the heavily beaded gown and halter straps. The hair sticks are also by L. Stone Designs. Since I'm older, and already married, we thought we would show the ensemble without a veil, but every bride deserves something beautiful in her hair!

Total cost is around $1200 for this style.

September's Bride...a fresh approach to formal.

Well, don't you look lovely?!! I love that gown, and you really do look fantastic. Love the L. Stone jewelry + hair sticks, and you're def. young enough to sport a veil!!!

I'm so glad I stopped by! What a wonderful idea to show a completed look! I just love that you did that! And before I realized that you had on my jewelry, I was already envisioning what would look well with that stunning gown and model!

It is so much fun for me to see my pieces on a bride and with a gown. I know I keep saying that, but it just is!

Thanks for so many mentions!
