Jim Hjelm Bridal Spring AND Fall 2013 Trunk Show

We are tickled pink about our trunk show this weekend featuring the best and boldest dresses of Spring '13 as well as the freshest fashions of their Fall '13 collection from Jim Hjelm Bridal.

Jim Hjelm is known for impeccable lace detail and beyond classy silhouettes. The newest grouping of gowns will feature all the greatness that they have become known for, and a dash of the trendy details...while remaining regal and timeless. A balance that Jim Hjelm has delightfully perfected.

Not all of the ad shots for Fall 2013 have been released to the public yet, so I have gathered both look book pics as well as behind the scenes snaps. Enjoy, and see you at the show this weekend!!

The show dates are June 28th and 29th, but the Spring 2013 collection is gracing our showroom floor for a few extra days to bring some sunshine to our Summer.

Real Housewife of Orange County Weds!

I admit, I am a Real Housewife fan. Especially when there is a wedding involved. If you are a viewer, like me, you know that these women are extremely candid, almost to a fault, so when it comes to the decision of their wedding attire; you know that it is going to be BIG!

The latest former wife, to wed again, is Orange County veteran, Tamara Barney. The petite blonde is known for her tight fitting clothes and love of everything bedazzled. She chose 3 different custom creations from Mark Zunio. Thus far, the only dress to surface on the internet is the ceremony gown...which I happen to LOVE!!

The multi toned gown with hints of pink, ivory and peach was a great choice for her skin tone and vibrant personality. The body skimming strapless is extremely flattering and the strapless bodice elongates her neckline while flattering her signature wavy locks. The flounced skirt is breathtaking. Even in still shots, you can see the movement and amazing detail.

Her choice of accessories weren't my fav. The head piece is AMAZING and complements her hair style perfectly, however I would have done without a necklace and what appears to be a cuff bracelet, as she chose a wrist bouquet on the left hand. There were too many visual cut off points. The headpiece was enough for me...but these Cali ladies love their bling!

Her bridal party followed suit with variations of blush floor length gowns. From satin to tulle fabrics and an array of necklines, these ladies picked gowns that flattered their personal shapes and styles. Again, I would have chosen a slightly different collections of gowns by sticking to one fabric, but the mix of styles, I am totally down with.

Amsale Introduces Lace Bridesmaids Dresses!

It is only natural that one of the top bridal designers would dive into the all lace trend...but, this is unlike most. Amsale did not even present these dresses at market because she wanted to perfect them, only as she knows how.

A classic collection so far consisting of 3 short, and 3 long (each neckline represented in both lengths); including her iconic one shoulder design that is fit to perfection.

Sample colors will include black with nude lining, raisin with matching lining, black on black and my favorite, pewter. I am gitty for these gowns!
