I feel pretty fortunate to be lounging in my basement blogging and watching the Steelers game right now (ok, more blogging than watching). Central Ohio experienced the remnants of Hurricane Ike today, which were much more forceful than most people here expected. Drew and I, completely oblivious, went out to Barnes & Noble where the power immediately went out, we were bombarded with leaf and dirt shrapnel outside, encountered at least a dozen downed trees on the way home, and arrived home to our patio furniture and grill tumbled all over the backyard. But we’re completely fine, snug and spoiled with our air conditioning and internet access.
Plus this lazy Sunday evening has given me the perfect opportunity to start finally trolling through the fashion week pictures. Of course there is limitless inspiration to be found, so I figured I would break up wedding and bridesmaid dresses into separate posts.
Not surprisingly, Marchesa showed one of the largest collections of wedding worthy gowns, including this sculptural pleated dress I think could be really striking on the right bride.
Badgley Mischka also had sleek silhouettes, but with softer fabrics including this simple delicate patterned lace dress.
Even though the feathered hem is a tad fussy, the short train keeps this L’Wren Scott gown from feeling too overdone, and I like the dotted veil although I would drape it differently.
Oscar de la Renta had so many beautiful gowns I couldn’t just one. Both of these are classic shapes, but I love how one plays with color and one with texture.
There isn’t much new about this Monique Lhuillier gown in terms of draping, but I do like the look of a long pendant worn over a sweetheart neckline and the slightly smoky color is very pretty.
