New Arrival from Jim Hjelm

We just received this new sample from Jim Hjelm yesterday... gorgeous! The raw edge flower has the most delicate and subtle crystal detail. And the slight difference in the fabric colors is really striking!

We're IN LOVE with this bracelet...

how gorgeous is this Lucite flower cuff bracelet by Alexis Bittar?! I was walking down Bleecker St. last night and totally stopped in my tracks when I saw this in his window. Perfect whimsical but elegant accessory for a garden wedding.

The collection includes gorgeous brooches too...

Unfortunately you won't find any of these lovelies at our store... but check the whole collection out at

New Collection at the store - Lusan Mandongus

We love the dresses we just got in from our new designer collection, Lusan Mandongus. Think slim lines, delicate beaded laces and incredible tailored details. The pic above is my favorite from his Spring 2009 line. Hard to tell in this pic, but it's a super sheer beaded lace overlay over chantilly lace and organza. Really soft and romantic, this dress has an ethereal quality without sacrificing a streamlined silhouette. I rarely see a beaded lace gown I like so I'm very excited to have this design in the store!!!

Just arrived- Watters Bride Cotton Lace dress for Spring 2009!

The Watters Brides Spring 2009 collection has just arrived at the store. Watters is a great line of gowns that are budget-friendly without sacrificing on style or quality. Style 4049B, "San Miguel" is my personal fave from the new collection. Gorgeous cotton lace with delicate lace appliques, stunning neckline and slim a-line skirt. Compare it to this Oscar De La Renta...

Not bad, huh... Especially considering the Oscar is probably around $20,000, and the new Watters dress is under $2000!!!!
