Fashion Friday: Elie Saab Spring 2013

Posted by Janna Simpao

Warning: Please remind yourself to breathe as you go through this post. These dresses are so heavenly that if I were to see them in person, I would probably faint. We can’t deny that Elie Saab is absolutely one of those people who’s way up there in our dream designer category right? So go ahead, swoon… cause it’s totally expected!

Fashion Friday: Jesus Peiro

Posted by Janna Simpao

It practically makes my day whenever we discover a new designer here at B&B. Yup, this is the first time Jesus Peiro designs will grace our Fashion Fridays. Honestly, it took me quite a while to choose what styles to actually feature since ALL of them are gorgeous. Loving how the little elements like the ribbons, applique and embroidery are manipulated in such a unique way, almost structural (but feminine) in nature. Another thing I am particularly swooning over are the necklines–definitely a breath of fresh air from the typical strapless tops. Anyway, you just have to see for yourself! Clean lines, romantic silhouettes and soft details make these beauties drool-worthy.

Fashion Friday: Valentino Resort 2013

Posted by Janna Simpao

Flowers, lace and the vibrant colors of Spring are probably some of my most favorite things in the world. When I saw Valentino Resort 2013, I naturally found myself dreamily appreciating the dresses, fabric and designs. So why not let these beauties inspire you today? Love, romance and pretty is definitely in the air.

Art and Affection

Just by looking at the work of Rock Paper Scissors Photography, you would know that they are not just photographers, they are true-blue artists.  Every time I feature their work, it always seems to have a different element to it–reinvention is key. RPS is one of the photographers to watch out for in the wedding scene.

So back to this particular piece of romantic bliss. A daring (and ravishing) fashionist couple, Peter and Emily’s engagement photos seem like they jumped out of the pages of Vogue. It’s passionate, dramatic and oh-so-stylish! I give the video an A+ for musical scoring and doing justice to a fabulously breathtaking wardrobe. This is so drool-worthy!

Memoirs in Taiwan

Posted by Janna Simpao

I’m a sucker for two things: One is destination engagement shoots and the other, gorgeous gowns. What happens when I get both? A revved up morning of course! You know the drill: read, look, drool. Set in the gorgeous scenery of Taiwan, this engagement shoot is one for the books.

Here’s our formula of the day:

  • Step one: Conjure elegant suits, exquisite dresses, and a cute little blue bow tie.
  • Step two: Add some rich and colorful backdrops.
  • Step three: Team up with an amazing photographer that will do justice to every detail of your shoot.
  • Step four: Love.

Voila! A perfect engagement memoir.
