a journey toward non-traditional wedded bliss, with style

In Honor of Mother’s Day May 12, 2008

Sadly, most manufactured “Mother of the Bride” dresses are sack-like and unflattering, which is a disservice to the woman wearing it more than anything else, because a wedding day is almost if not more emotional for a mom as her daughter. I understand the urge not to overshadow the bride, but I think my Mom deserves to look fabulous too. I completely accept that we have different styles and that ultimately I want her to pick what makes her happy, but I plan to have her try on more than just floor length pastel chiffon sheaths with matching beaded boleros. I have no idea what we’ll end up with, but here are a few ideas I love...

Badgley Mischka, Diane von Furstenburg, Donna Karan, J Crew, JS Collections

    You must have one skinny Mom for her to be able to pull of any of those looks. As cute as they are, most mom’s can’t wear anything modeled by a 15 year old toothpick. =)

    My mom is actually far from a toothpick and very petite, but I still think a lot of these dresses would be flattering on different sizes. Especially the DvF and the J Crew since they have heavier fabric and defined waists…what can I say, I’m a student of Stacey and Clinton from What Not to Wear 🙂
