Jason Wu Striped Dress Color Palette

color palette inspired by Jason Wu for Target Striped DressWhile on vacation last Sunday I skipped breakfast and sought out the local Target to snag this Jason Wu for Target striped dress. I just love the unusual color combination of charcoal, mustard and blush. It’s pretty short on me, so I may have to use it as a Fall dress with tights, but I still love it. Right now it’s hanging on the outside door of my closet so I can admire the colors every time I pass by it.

fantasy wedding at the four seasons

Last weekend I was hanging out by the pool, flipping through magazines, and fell in lust with Amsale’s Eliana wedding gown. The ribbons are so pretty, aren’t they? I started daydreaming about the type of wedding that would go with it, and I can totally see it as a winter wedding in New York City at The Four Seasons Restaurant. Silvers, wintery blues and black details. With lots of diamonds. And yummy food.

Gown: “Eliana” by Amsale; Invitation: letterpresss invitation Ava by Delphine; champagne flutes: Vera Wang for Wedgewood; china: Wedgewood Renaissance Gold

bridesmaid dress fun



One of my coolest clients ever, Tiffani, had a lot of fun with the whole bridesmaids dress issue … she had a “27 Dresses” themed bridal shower. Everyone wore a real live bm dress from their closet (including Tiffani!). Colleen Sherman took photos … you can see them on her blog here.

bridesmaid dress bliss


“Bridesmaids dress” … two of the most dreaded words in every woman’s lexicon. Everyone in the same dress = everyone unhappy (SORRY, D, R, J & D!). A great alternative is something like what Katie’s bms did: pick a great color palette and a fabric type & let the ladies pick a dress they really love. Aren’t these dress colors (and flowers) simply lovely?!?

Being able to wear the dress again is really not the issue … feeling great about the way you look on your best friend’s big day is! Fab photos by Kate Benson. Found on the Southern Weddings super cool blog!

if only i had somewhere to go …




If only I still lived in the South, where my wardrobe consisted of shift dresses and bathing suits, I would buy this dress in a heartbeat. I love the folded details around the collar.
