1. Why It Works Wednesday: The Sophisicated Abstract Blusher Veil

    I've been crushing lately on some pretty amazing veils that have been floating around the Pinterosphere. Truth be told, I was going to wear a veil, I was going to make my own bird cage veil, had the netting, had all the materials but when push came to shove my DIY dance card was full and I literally forgot about it. Odd right? A major piece of my wedding day look that literally completely slipped my mind. I think it registered that I had forgotten it sometime just after the ceremony and I was a bit sad with myself. See there is something so alluring about veils for me, something that like nothing else says 'I am a Bride', an air of sweet coyness that I personally wont ever get enough of! On Friday I featured some pretty amazing black veils that are all sorts of bridal fashion forward amazing and if you missed it, I highly suggest you go scope out the eye candy!

  2. Gorgeous Black Veils From Fashion Forward To Couture

    A long while back I did a feature on black birdcage veils. Its so interesting because at the time that I was hunting down gorgeous veils to feature, it was almost like pulling teeth to really find great veils of any sort in black, they simply weren't out there. As I addressed in my feature there is a strong stigma associated with the black veil, that of something that is worn pretty much solely to a funeral related function, and I find that really unfortunate. There is certain quality that black veils emit, that of something wonderfully regal and chic. There is an almost royal like quality to them, not something that the common man would typically wear. I was curious to see how the world has evolved in regards to black veils and my oh my, I am not let down!

  3. Kata Banko Couture Bridal Accessories Look Book

    No matter what kind of bride each of us identifies with, there are some truly amazing accessories out there to help us achieve our vision. Kata Banko Couture recently put together a look book of their newest pieces, some playful, some perfectly traditional, each with a certain touch that makes them unique. Structured organza, feather accents, gorgeous full bodied veils, Kata Banko Couture collection rides the line between the classic bride and those seeking a fashion forward look to their day. While headpieces are certainly the focal point to the collection, multi-strand pearl necklaces accompany jeweled sashes & ribbon accented bracelets which are my personal favorites. I'm loving the details of Kata's collection & I think you will too!

  4. Why It Works Wednesday: Vintage Veil Luxury In Dots & Lace From Cheryl Taylor of Taylor Clarke Bridals

    I have a lil secret..... even though I personally didn't rock one, I have a MAJOR crush on veils. Now I'll be honest, I am NOT talking about your cookie cutter run of the mill plain tulle, good ol'lace trim, basic length veils. Sure they are fine enough, they just aren't my personal jam. To me, veils equal drama, mystic, prestige & sophistication, so if you're going to go down that road, GO.DOWN.THAT.ROAD, knowwhatimean!? I keep a special board on Pinterest called Lifting The Veil where I not so secretly stash away all of my most favorite looks that praise everything about the wonder that is veils. I am not kidding when I say I am pretty damn picky about what makes the cut for that board {there may have been a shot of two where I was wooed by the photography, but I digress...}. For me to love a veiled look, there needs to be a very special je ne sais quoi... Be it phenomenal lace, gorgeous trimmings, unique ways of styling... you name it.... I am not scared and I love everything about the playful & fashion forward genius that can be veil creation.
