So, it's Gown Friday once more. My last. Thanks to Dani who invited me into this marvelous space to share my favorite designer images these four Gown Fridays. It was truly an experience. Look for more of my fashion-related posts here at Weddings Fresh as I look forward to some more guest blogging.

Just look at these gems by Elisabetta Polignano. It's all in getting the silhouette right that's her specialty. Her site has even more chic . . .

...he's here!!!

good morning and happy monday!! well, my baby boy, bradley is now 2 weeks old and i feel about 60 years old--needless to say, it's a little draining taking care of a 16 month old and a new born :) and my husband and i are pretty tired, but on friday had some pictures taken of our new addition! though it was quite the experience to get everyone focused and situated according to "plan", mindy from mindy strauss life photography did a wonderful job! not only is she such a good friend, her photography is also so beautiful. so here is a peak of bradley and even a picture of me and my husband, tyler...i think this is the first time i have shown my face... :)


well, enough of that :) here is a creamsicle inspiration board:

Happy Gown Friday everyone! I'll be here another couple Fridays while Dani is enjoying her new little cutie who is almost 2 weeks old this Sunday.
Today I want to introduce you to a very talented European designer. If you like a more figure-hugging sculpted chic to your gown, check out Britta Kjerkegaard for The Couture Gallery. She uses heavier satins that reflect that post-war Paris look in the late 40s early 50s. With the exception of the dress above, most of her pieces are in pink or gold tones. Navigating through her site is a lot of fun!

Hey ho Everyone! Amy-Jo Tatum from Bride Chic here with a little bit of update on Dani and little Bradley Taylor. Bradley was born Sunday night at 9:03 pm. He weighed in at 8 lbs 10 oz and is 20 inches long. Dani is getting some much needed R&R and family time claiming her new angel is--you guessed it--perfect.
So I'll be with you another gown Friday and couple more with a new crop of beauties like these. You have to check out Giambattista Valli's 2009 collection. It has to be one of the best out there. And looks like he's brought back one of my favorites, the classic sheath . . . .

We haven't seen too many sheaths in structured fabrics like these since the 1980s. Fortunately Valli's are pared down to chic minimalism whereas 80s versions were generally full of pouf and paste embellishments.
