Shopping at BHLDN

Wednesday, June 27, 2018

When it came to choosing a color for my bridal party I went straight to my sister and asked what color she wanted to wear. When she came back to me saying that she had been seeing a lot of silver and loved the color for a wedding I immediately agreed. To find the perfect dress for her I booked an appointment at BHLDN on the Upper East Side and had her meet me in the city to try on a few dresses. 


Whether you are the bride-to-be the mother or the bride/groom or in the bridal party,  BHLDN is the perfect place to find a dress- they have a great array of styles and affordable dresses. My sister tried on about six dresses before finding the "perfect" one but honestly every one she tried on we thought was "the one" until she tried on the next one. It was a tough decision at the end but she found a gorgeous dress (that looks great on her) and we can not wait to share the final look with you all (you just have to wait until the wedding). 





When I booked the appointment for my sister I started searching through the website for a dress for myself for my bridal shower. With so many great Little White Dress options I knew I would find a great dress that I would wear over and over again. I tried on three dresses and absolutely loved every one but the one I picked is amazing-it fits perfectly and I know I am going to get a lot of use out of it.  
This little number is super fun and flirty (and under $200) Promenade Dress 


In the meantime if you are searching for a special occasion dress I linked a few of my absolute favorites below and if you are the type that needs to try before you buy I highly recommend that you set up an appointment at BHLDN.







Flirting with Floral

Wednesday, May 30, 2018

It is no secret I am a huge fan of jumpsuits for the season (check out this polka dot one right here) and I have been playing with different patterns and cuts. This flutter sleeve floral jumpsuit fits to perfection and I will be honest with you I have worn it with everything from sandals to heels (as seen here) and even slip on sneakers for that laid back yet chic look.  Yellow is also one of my favorite colors this season and I have been stocking up on everything from dresses to blouses, jumpsuits & rompers. 


 

I paired this look with one of my favorite "lady-like" handbags from Deux Lux (and yes all of their handbags are vegan!) and loved the contrasting color with the yellow. Would you believe it if I told you I had these pumps for about 6 years now?!? I can't believe it either! I nabbed them at Zara and they have held up really well.
Nude pumps are know to extend your leg making you look a little taller and a little slimmer which are two things every girl wants (even this one at 5'10). 






A few weeks ago I went to an event with Diamond Nexus and absolutely fell in love with their line of Contemporary Nexus Diamonds. These manufactured diamonds are less expensive than mined diamonds and because they are man made they are perfect in color and shape. This East-West Pear Necklace is absolutely stunning and I love how it fit with the neckline of this jumpsuit. 


What I wore:
East-West Pear Necklace Diamond Nexus c/o
Handbag Deux Lux c/o
Bracelet Gabriel & Co. c/o

Black Tie at The Plaza

Thursday, May 24, 2018

Wow! This week has been a whirlwind and if you are like me you are still dreaming of the Royal Wedding. Last week I kept it quite busy with a few events including making my own bracelet at Links of London to honor the Royal Wedding (you can see it on my instastories @fashinny) and celebrating at the Plaza Hotel (seen here). 
For the Rehearsal Dinner at the Plaza I wore this gorgeous Phoebe Dress by Ghost London from BHLDN (a go-to place for any bride to be as well as her bridal party). I absolutely fell in love with the black cherry color and I have to share that I received compliments all night long. If you are in search for the perfect dress to wear to a wedding this season, this is it! 






Now for the details- I was in a last minute jam for shoes as I had forgotten that I needed a new pair of black pumps. With not a lot of time to spare of course I had to grab something available on Amazon Prime and I came across these two tone ankle strap stilettos that fit the bill. Amazingly they were quite comfortable and only after five an a half hours my feet started slightly hurting- that's a major win in my books. My clutch was in the Winter Box of Style from Rachel Zoe and I have worn it to every wedding and fancy occasion since I received it. A box clutch can be a bit of a jigsaw puzzle when arranging all of your items inside but nothing beats how chic they look when paired with the right dress!

A Royal Fete At the Plaza Hotel

Tuesday, May 22, 2018


For the past few weeks I have been gushing to everyone and anyone I know about how excited I was about the Royal Wedding. If you know anything about me, I have a few things in common with the Royal Couple that made even more exciting for me to watch and to be a part of.
For starters Meghan and I share a birthday month but even more than that I got engaged in August in Scotland (where the Royals Summer) a few days ahead of Harry and Meghan and will be getting married this August only 3 months after.
As any bride can tell you, we pay attention to details so you can bet I have been watching every move from the engagement shoot all the way through the wedding predictions & have been completely enamored with all the details.  So, you can imagine how excited I was when I was invited to celebrate they Royal Wedding at the Plaza Hotel with WeddingWire  (my planning tool since day 1) and Love Stories TV.  


My evening started off with the "Royal Glam", think hair, makeup, tiaras and jewels- just a few of this gals favorite things.  I entered the Plaza's Royal Suite and was immediately greeted with a glass of Krug's Champagne as I set off to explore. I decided to go for hair first followed by makeup so I would be ready for the rest of the evening. Eric Sebbag from Warren Tricomi at the Plaza took the reigns on my hair and added some loose curls then twisted one side to the back letting the rest of my hair fall to one side and totally nailed the royal look. Following hair I got a small makeup touch up with some extra highlighter and bronze eyeshadow to bring out my eyes. 
Before heading off to pick out my tiara for my photos I sidetracked to the Birchbox table to make my own box mixed with a few of Meghan's favorite products. I filled my box with Oribe Dry Texturizing Spray, Derma-E Hydrating mist (use this with a Jade roller), Oribe Cote d'Azur, Amika un.done volume & matte Texture Spray & Eyeko Skinny Liquid Liner (which also happens to be one of my favorites). Now that I was all stocked up on my "Meghan approved" beauty products and my hair and makeup were Royally approved it was time to choose a tiara for my portrait. 





With so many gorgeous choices from Kleinfelds it was hard to choose, I can just imagine how long it took Meghan to pick the perfect one for her ceremony. I finally narrowed it down to my favorite one after trying on many and took my "Royal photo" in the Royal Suite. 




And of course, what is a Royal Fete without a few Corgis & some Gin! Even here in America we know what the Queen likes! The Royal Suite was filled with a few Corgis to set the mood, these are Queen's preferred breed of dog & within her reign she has owned more than 30 Corgis. Something that I learned on my trip to Scotland is that the Queen is a fan of Gin- she actually likes it straight before lunch (a little fun fact).



The Rehearsal Dinner was held in the Edwardian Room at the Plaza Hotel, I was seated at the Northern Lights table, some of the other tables included the Frogmore House (where Meghan and Harry had their Dinner party) and Windsor Castle. 
The absolutely stunning floral & event design were produced by Fete NY - Jung Lee designed the centerpieces including White Roses for Princess Diana and Peonies for Meghan Markle & even gave a toast to the royal couple during the evening. The three course menu included items typical to British tradition and I must say it was absolutely delicious. As the evening came to an end we were all reminded of what was to come in only a short few hours and the Rehearsal Dinner was the perfect event to honor the Royal Couple right before their wedding. 
Now, onto my wedding- this gorgeous night absolutely set the stage and made me even more excited for what is to come for my wedding. If you are planning a wedding you know it is no small task and we all know Meghan had a team behind her helping her with every decision. My team is WeddingWire, it helped me narrow down my choice for location, preview wedding design inspo, contact bands and more and I honestly could not have put it all together without them. 










A special thank you to WeddingWire for sponsoring this post & for helping me plan my wedding, for more about WeddingWire check out my previous posts seen here & here.
