Vera Wang Spring 2016 Collection – Cutting Edge or Cutting Room Floor?
So I’ve been researching the Spring 2016 bridal collections from various designers this week and happened upon the Vera Wang Spring 2016 collection. I have long been an admirer of he classic Vera Wang dress. Reminiscent of an aspirational New York lifestyle. Clean lines, flattering, sophisticated. So what went wrong with this collection? I may be on my own here. though I doubt it, but this is the most vile collection of wedding dress designs I have ever seen. The majority are completely unwearable. Just imagine walking down the aisle in any of these. In my opinion, someone has seriously lost the plot. Anyway don’t take my word for it. Judge for yourself and please, please, please, leave a comment below.
Vera Wang Spring 2016 Collection
I’ll break you in gently with this confusing gown. Without the bow monstrosity on the front this could have been quite a nice dress. What is the point of the bow? It appears to be acting as a fancy sling for one arm. WHY?
The fabric on the outer skirt is gorgeous but why the short bit underneath? looks like the sort of thing a 16 year old would buy from the local cheap shop. And don’t even get me started on the greasy hair look. Have a bloody wash!
Wedding Gowns – Eliza Jane Howell Grand Opera Collection 2016
Now I love wedding dresses. One of my biggest wedding planning regrets is that I only tried 2 dresses on when I get married. Now I am lucky as I get to touch, drool and photograph lots of different styles of gowns to feed my addiction. To me a wedding dress is probably the most glamorous and expensive thing you will ever wear. Make it count and ratchet up the sophistication a notch. What better way to do that than with the Eliza Jane Howell Grand Opera Collection 2016. As the name suggests the collection evokes glamour from a bygone era. Effortless chic in flowing fabrics, intricate beading, feathers and classic silhouettes. There is even a bit of paisley. When did you last see that in a wedding dress?
So today I am bringing just a flavour of the collection. There are more to ooh an ahh over on the website.
Eliza Jane Howell Grand Opera Collection 2016
Soft, flowing Belinda with gorgeous shoulder and sleeve detail.
I do love a long sleeved wedding gown. Tis figure skimming Angelica is a beauty. Imagine the sparkle off this beauty under the evening lights?
The back view of any Eliza Jane Howell dress is as show stopping as the front and Lady Lucille is no exception.
Super flattering bodice detail draws the eye in on this cap sleeved gown that looks amazing the with fringed Juliette cap veil.
Beautiful metallic Juliette with beaded fringed sleeved, plunging neckline and shimmering silver beading.
Just look at the art deco inspired fabric on this beauty, Fleur. Also love that elbow length gloves are making a comeback.
Fabulous feathers and sparkly beads make Chianti a total knockout.
And here’s that paisley I was telling you about. How to make a statement at your wedding in one slinky Venus dress.
So there you have it. Just a little glamorous taster of the fabulous Eliza Jane Howell Grand Opera Collection 2016. Which is your favourite? Would love to hear from you.
Wedding dress shopping: Picking the dress of your dreams
Hundreds of people get married every day. So you would assume that if there was some deep dark secret surrounding the dress shopping experience, someone would have spilt the glitter by now. Unfortunately that is not the case. For some reason or another, friends, family and the glossy pages of wedding magazines all tend to leave out the most important aspects to picking the perfect dress. Which is why this list has come to the rescue. Think of it as a pre-wedding gift to save you time, embarrassment and disappointment whilst wedding dress shopping!
Wedding dress shopping: Picking the dress of your dreams
- Wedding Dresses are really expensive
You are probably already aware of the immense heights the price of a wedding dress can reach but what people tend to leave out is the fact that there is rarely a way around the price tag. Sooner or later you will have to accept the fact that weddings aren’t cheap. The best thing to do is to talk the sales person down as much as you can and to ask the consultant about any available discounts in store. It is also advised that you don’t show up to your appointment clueless. Wedding dresses from Bride Online will give you a clearer idea of the different variations, styles and fabrics of dresses available so that you can choose your dream dress with a little more assurance and confidence.
- ‘The One’ may not be what you had expected
Similar to your fiancée perhaps, the perfect dress may not be the one that you saw coming. When you attend your dress fitting appointment you will probably have a few ideas swimming around in your head about what style, shape and fabric you see yourself in on your big da. This is good news for the consultant but try not to restrict yourself too much. Huffington Post advises that you try on a variety of gowns because this is a one-time experience. You may even surprise yourself by liking something completely different than what you had expected.
- Expect to get a little more ‘up close and personal’
An embarrassing surprise for many budding brides is when they enter the changing room to try on another dress and suddenly the sales consultant is unzipping and dressing you herself. This is a lot more common than you might think. The main reason is to save time. Appointments often drag on longer than anticipated which could leave other customers waiting around for their turn. To speed things up, the consultant might help you along. So make sure you aren’t wearing anything too embarrassing underneath all those layers.
4. Choosing the right undergarments is essential
The wrong undergarments have the power to throw you off balance and can make you look less than perfect on your special day. That is why it is important to wear underwear that will compliment your figure and to ensure that your dress fits properly.
- If you can’t walk in it, how are you going to dance in it?
There is no point trying on your favourite wedding dress and standing on the same spot. It’s time to take the dress on a test run. Walk about the store and test how the dress moves and decide whether or not you feel comfortable in it. According to Glamour magazine, ‘a dress that’s pretty when you’re standing tall can look frumpy when you’re seated’. Which is why it’s a good idea to give your dress a fair test run before buying it.
