I love New York. I know people normally say that, but if you dig deeper on this so-called love, it’s quite a whole different story. People can love New York for its energy, culture, diversity of self-expression, fast-paced lifestyle and many more. I, on the other hand, love New York because of an unconventional reason—I love all the fabulous bridal stores! *Sigh* Just the thought of being surrounded by all those pretty things makes my heart leap for joy! Like a kid goes crazy the moment they enter a toy store, I confess that bridal stores have the same effect on me. So when I found out that J.Crew, one of my favorite (more affordable) imported brands, was opening a Bridal boutique in Madison Ave., I added it to my “must-visit stores when in New York” list. However, I wasn’t sure when my next trip to the Big Apple would be so I decided to look for the next best thing. If it looks this fun on video, I am dying to visit it sooner than later. Oh what a happy day! This video inspired me so much, I got quite a few styling ideas brewing in my head, but those will just have to wait until my next post. Today we take a little bridal field trip… enjoy!

Here are some styles I am loving this season. These would look so effortlessly gorgeous on bridesmaids. The key is to accessorize, accessorize, accessorize!
Style Tip: Find silk organdy fabric and have it made into a ball gown skirt. Pair it with a classic white tee if your wedding has more of a casual feel. For a more formal look, try a plain silk blouse.
Style Tip: Printed taffeta would look so great for weddings. Accessorize with a flower belt.
Style Tip: A flowing A-line chiffon skirt paired with a white or cream tank will give a fresh and young look. Don’t be afraid to use bold, shiny accessories to add an elegant feel.
