This was my first time at Monique‘s show, and it was everything I knew it would be. She’s an absolute wizard when it comes to corsetry and detailing. The dress below was covered in knots, which I thought was a unique take on the ruffle. My favorite though was one you’d never guess, a pink ruffled dress (seen above, bottom right) . I know what you’re saying…”a pink AND pouffy dress? That goes against everything you believe in!” But I’m telling you, it was a stunner! More pics on Facebook…
Check out the tiny photographers catching the last shot…they were so professional!

Last night I had the distinct pleasure of getting the FIRST LOOK at 57Grand‘s new wedding dress line! I fell in love with the fabulous details like specially made French lace with sequins and adorable overlays with geometric shapes like dots and squares. Their short dresses are perfection for civil ceremonies or reception changes, and paired with EMilliner‘s hairpieces, the looks are utterly modern! The dresses are so new they haven’t even made it to the website yet, so check back later next week to see them all.

A question I am often asked is “what should I wear as a guest to a wedding – preferably under $200?”
Ladies, I’m here to help.
Although I know this is a wedding blog most often perused by you lovely brides, I also know that during my own time as a bride, I had TONS of weddings I also had to attend. Since I had my own wedding on the brain, the last thing I wanted to do was try to figure out (at the last minute, of course) what to wear to someone else’s wedding.
These are my picks for great frocks to wear as a guest to a wedding. Simple, easy to wear, and allows for dancing. Plus, at these great price points, you can afford to pick one (or a couple) out and have them ready and hanging in your closet for those last minute fashion decisions. –Tram at Phi-Style.com

Fall 2010 has brought us several trends, but one trend that has seemed to transcend among the fashion houses during New York fashion week was the black-accented tuxedo trend. Menswear is no new concept for womens fashion, but what makes this trend interesting is its applicability to bridal fashion as well.

Black as applied to bridal fashion is most often seen as a sash, but why stop there? Necklaces, trim, and gloves can give your bridal look an elegant and modern twist. Femme fatale on your wedding day? Why not? – Tram from Phi-Style

Last week, Shopbop.com officially launched their online Wedding Boutique. Now I’m a big fan of online wedding boutiques in general because it almost makes shopping for wedding attire and accessories into a one-stop shopping experience. You get to see whole ensembles put together cohesively from brands you know and trust, from bridal gown to lingerie and accessories. Add to that how easy the Shopbop.com site is to navigate, AND hello, free 3-day shipping and returns? It’s a win-win!
What’s also great about Shopbop’s Wedding Boutique is that they offer such a wide price range for all things wedding attire – wedding gowns range from roughly $300 to $2500. Looking for jewelry or bridesmaid dresses? This boutique has got you covered. Here are some of my picks for gowns, accessories, and bridesmaid dresses. – Tram from Phi-Style.com
