gown inspiration...

there are few moments when i come across a gown that inspires me to create an entire wedding, and this is one of them. thanks to a fantastic post from bride chic, i could not stop thinking about this oscar de la renta lace, belted skirt and long sleeved blouse.
not only is this gown two separate pieces, which is a new trend for this year, but this design evokes such a sense of simplicity, warmth, and yet, all with chic style. as the bride is ever searching for something new and perhaps sensible, this would be my pick. unbelievable grace and poise, without the suffocating norms of traditions, this gown, and more than that, this style is complete picture of a modern wedding.

warm colorful j. crew

i have refrained from doing my bi-weekly gazing of since my pregnancy began strictly to keep me from tail spinning into depression knowing that i can no longer indulge in fashionable clothing. but i just had to do it today! it's rainy and dark and cold outside my little home and all these warm colorful gifts have just given me much envy for a normal body... i guess i'll just settle for some hot chocolate and enjoy this time while my son is napping :)
