GOWNS

NOW THAT WE'RE THIS CLOSE TO SIGNING A LEASE FOR OUR FUTURE SPACE, I THOUGHT I'D PUT A FEW GOWNS THAT I'M CURRENTLY OBSESSING OVER ON OUT THERE. IF YOU CAN'T TELL, MY CURRENT FAVORITE WEDDING TREND IS A PALE, PALE POWDER BLUE GOWN. ALSO, ALL OF THE LOOKS BELOW ARE BY DESIGNERS WE HOPE TO STOCK SOON SOON!

XO, ALYSSA

A MORNING AT LAMB BRIDE

THIS IS MY DREAM.

YOU AND YOUR MOTHER AND SISTER AND BEST FRIEND WALK INTO LAMB BRIDE ONE SPRING MORNING. THE SUN SHINES THROUGH THE CEILING HIGH FRONT WINDOWS, CASTING THE SHADOW OF A LITTLE LAMB ON THE HARDWOOD FLOORS. AS YOU WALK THROUGH THE FRONT DOOR, BELLS RING. A SIMLEY, HIP SALESGIRL GREETS YOU WITH A CUP OF TEA OR A GLASS OF (WHITE) WINE. YOU CHAT A BIT ABOUT YOUR DREAMS FOR YOU DAY AND FOR YOUR DRESS AS YOU MEANDER THROUGH THE COPPER RACKS AND RACKS OF BEAUTIFUL GOWNS. YOUR BESTY GRABS A GOWN OR TWO, AS DO YOU AND YOUR MOTHER, AS DOES YOUR SALESGIRL (BASED ON ALL OF YOUR WISHES). SHE SEATS YOUR POSSE IN A HALF CIRCLE OF CHAIRS AND CHAISES, CENTERED AROUND A TALL, ORNATE MIRROR AND A COLORFUL BERBER RUG. AFTER OFFERING YOUR LADIES A SELECTION OF FIELD & FIRE PASTRIES, THE SALESGIRL THEN ACCOMPANIES YOU TO YOUR FITTING ROOM.

FROM THERE, ALL IS PURE MAGIC. YOU TRY ON WHIMSICAL GOWN AFTER WHIMSICAL GOWN IN THE SUN DRENCHED SALON OF THE SHOP, SURROUNDED BY ONLY THE BEST COMPANY. MUSIC PLAYS IN THE BACKGROUND, YOUR SALESGIRL EXPERTLY ADDS CAPELETS AND BELTS AND HEADPEICES TO YOUR ENSEMBLE, YOUR SISTER HAS A BIT TOO MUCH WINE, AND YOUR MOTHER LETS A FEW TEARS LOOSE. IN THE END, YOU FIND THE GOWN. THE GOWN. THE GOWN YOU'VE DREAMED ABOUT FOR YEARS AND YEARS AND YEARS. WE HAND YOU A FRESH, WILD BOUQUET, PIN IN A VEIL, AND YOU'RE SURE. AFTER WE SNAP SEEMINGLY HUNDREDS OF PHOTOS AND THOROUGHLY OBSESS OVER YOUR LOOK, WE SEND YOU ON YOUR WAY. WE'RE ALL JUST ABOUT AS HAPPY AS CAN BE. 

  THIS IS MY DREAM.

XO, ALYSSA

CURATION

ALONG SIDE OF PURCHASING GOWNS DIRECTLY FROM BRIDAL DESIGNERS, I HOPE TO DO A GREAT DEAL OF DRESS HUNTING ON MY OWN. THERE ARE SO MANY ONLINE RETAILERS THAT STOCK BEAUTIFUL LONG WHITE GOWNS THAT WOULD BE IDEAL FOR MANY A BRIDE. THE BIGGEST PROBLEM WITH SUCH GOWNS IS THEY'RE NOT AVAILABLE TO BE TRIED ON IN PERSON. NOW - THEY WOULD BE AVAILABLE. I'D ALSO HOPE TO FIND AND STOCK A SELECTION OF ANTIQUE GOWNS. I'M DOING A BIT OF HUNTING ONLINE TONIGHT. THAT NUMBER ON THE TOP LEFT IS FULL BODY SEQUINS AND IS PRETTY MUCH MY DREAM WINTER WEDDING GOWN.

WHY NOT WEAR SOME AMAZING SHOES UNDER YOUR FAVORITE DRESS? PLUS, WOULDN'T THEY BE A HOOT TO TRY ON WITH YOUR GOWN? I'M PRETTY SURE I'D LOVE IT...
