Destination Wedding Gowns

Picking a wedding dress is usually a difficult, emotional, and exciting process to go through in general.  However when picking a wedding gown for a destination wedding, the process may get more difficult.  When having a destination wedding, it is best not only to think about the place where you are getting married but also the style of the wedding party.  For brides, this is the biggest decision which you have to make because if not the day will be uncomfortable and hot.  By picking the perfect dress for that specific destination wedding, you not only will look gorgeous but also look comfortable because you have chosen the dress that fits not only you but the destination.  Old destination dresses, which are known for being either short or basic, are now taking on a new looks, which are chic but still comfortable.  Destination wedding gowns are now modern, structured but still yet flowing, detailed, and light weight.

Victoria Beckham’s Royal Wedding Chic

 Now of course when we think of weddings, as guest we feel like the attire is sometimes limited.  From modern chic and relaxed weddings to black ties, sometimes the outfit choices and be somehow difficult for women.  However, recently the Royal Wedding of Prince William and Catherine Middleton brought about the elegant but chic of them all.  Victoria Beckham, former Spice Girl and current Fashion Designer, is known for being “Posh” on a regular basis, but when it came to the Royal Wedding, she showed the world exactly why she was “Posh Spice.”  Even as she is pregnant at the Royal Wedding, she camouflages her stomach with a flowing navy dress, which complements her whimsical but traditional navy hat, navy clutch, and her navy Christian Louboutin hidden platform heels.  For a wedding, this is genius in the sense that her whole outfit is not only gorgeous, daring, and also minimalistic, but just simply looks comfortable to wear.  This is an excellent choice for all shapes and sizes when attending weddings, along with the right accessories!

Style on the Street

I must say that I have been mildly depressed about the state of sloppy dressing in the Washington area. Most of the time when I am out all I see is a sea of flip flops, juicy couture and an over abundance of cleavage.  So when I ran into Mary, Kristin and Ehab I was ecstatic.

I ran into Mary at the Post Office and she looks so cute. The amazing thing is, she used to work at Nordstrom as a personal shopper! Her haircut is just adorable! He collaboration of the grey and black works so well for her.  A+ for Mary

Mary Stack

I first met Ehab at the Heltzberg Diamond store in Potomac Mills where I picked up on his fabulous Prada shoes!  I was in Tysons today shopping for a client and was sooo happy to see him again.  He is always dressed impeccably and today was no exception.  I still love the shoes!! A+ for Ehab!

Ehab Jawdat

After I was finished shopping with my client, I met up with my friend Kim for some lunch at Nordstrom Cafe.  When we were checking out I spotted Kristin and told her how great she looked!  Her outfit is perfect for a little shopping at the mall; not too dressy, not too casual.  Her daughter was pretty cute too.  A+ for Kristin

Kristin White

So that’s it for today! I am always on the prowl for good and awful style so beware, you might see yourself here!!
