I’m absolutely going crazy for Simple Silhouettes new line of ready to wear dresses, appropriately called Simple Dress. They’re just perfect for bridal showers, engagement parties, and dare I say the obvious….weddings?? All are in stock and ready to ship in some fabulous fabrics, and to celebrate, they’re offering free inbound (and outbound if necessary) shipping through June 30.

Last week I had the pleasure of enjoying tea with Joanna August, a super talented designer out of California who does gorgeous bridesmaids and wedding dresses. Her objective is simple: she’ll only make dresses that she herself would wear, and that can absolutely be worn again. Its more about making dresses that can be used FOR weddings, rather than bridesmaids dresses that can be worn OUTSIDE of weddings. Pretty clever if you ask me.

The Optique ring from designer Chun Chun is probably way more affordable that a real diamond, and seriously, isn’t it just cooler??

Reem Acra won my award for best in show! I’ve always loved her dresses, and this collection was no exception. Her details were total perfection with creative rouching, architectural ruffles and flowers, and lingerie inspired corsets.
The dress above (bottom left and right) had to be my absolute favorite…those pleats were perfectly modern.
The top dress (above left and right) has handmade ruffles, making it so no dress of this design is the same…fabulous right?
