Phi-Style: Feather Details

Why not try feather accents on your big day?  Or even an entire feather-themed wedding!  They aren’t just for hair pieces and fascinators anymore – try them as accents on shoes, jewelry, or even the dress!  – Tram @

Neon wedding inspiration: Fashion

Last December I had the pleasure of visiting Jennifer Behr‘s studio in Williamsburg, and absolutely fell in love with her line of neon veils…right then and there I was determined to show how a modern bride could use them for her own wedding.  Neon is a wonderful accent to stark white and makes for a great pop against a neutral base.  I teamed up with photographer Jenny Ebert of 1. art beauty life and Jackie Weppner of Merci New York to help style the shoot (since I’m a photoshoot newbie :) In this post we’ll focus on how to work neon into your wardrobe, and later this afternoon, how to work it into your decor. Enjoy!

Above: 1 dress, 2 looks….changing the necklace makes a huge difference right?  It’s all about your comfort level…you can go with a subtle pop or go full on color blast!

Cheap trick tip: Adding pops of neon doesn’t have to be expensive!  Sometimes all it takes is a spray can, fabric dye, paint or even nailpolish.  Those earrings you see above?  I bought them from a street vendor and painted them with some fluorescent yellow nail polish!  You can do the same thing with necklaces or other pieces of jewelry too..

Cheap trick: You can buy simple trim from a fabric or ribbon store to add a bit of color to your dress….for this shoot, fluorescent ribbon was used as dress sashes and bracelets!

Dont want to commit to a lot of color all at once?  A pop of pink lipstick, a bright chunky necklace, or even some colorful bobby pins could give your outfit just the punch it needs.
