Destination Wedding Style: The Hamptons

by

This week Rent The Runway is featuring dresses for destination weddings in the Hamptons!  The ladies at Rent The Runway asked if I would share some of my favorite looks again.  It was ridiculously hard to choose just three to share when I really had like ten favorites on my short list!  When I think of a Hamptons wedding I think of beautiful mansions, perfectly manicured gardens at aforementioned mansions…and beach-side tents.  Those are my three favorite types of locations to plan pretty parties and weddings in!

My first pick is the pretty little Blue Gradient Dress by Theia!  I would pick this look for a garden party at the mansion!

The second look would be perfect for a party IN the mansion!  I could see us sipping a fancy cocktail in the library in this little number by BCBG MaxAzaria!   I love the nude heels and add a little sparkle to the wrist and we’re all set!

The third look would be my pick for a wedding in one of those beautiful sailcloth tents near the beach.  This is the Jyoti Maxi Dress by Shoshana and looks gorgeous with little gold accents on the ears, around the wrist or on the neck.

Destination Wedding Style: Miami

by

It’s July and summer wedding season is in full swing! Figuring out what to wear can be an on going challenge…Especially when you have multiple weddings to attend this summer like A LOT of people I know.  Rent the Runway can be a huge help in this dilemma!   I turn to Rent The Runway to figure out what to wear but, it also won’t drain your bank account shopping for a new dress for each and every wedding.

Throughout the months of June & July, Rent the Runway has been feature different wedding destination looks, from Nantucket to Napa.   Their latest featured destination wedding looks are Miami inspired!  I pulled a few of my favorite designers and dresses that I’d choose for a Miami destination wedding.

This first look is my FAVE!  It’s Halston Heritage, the Orchid Sunrise Maxi Dress and rents for only $100.  This dress reminds me of a chic pool side soiree in a swanky South Beach Hotel.  Pair this with a great pair of metallic strappies and you’re good to go!

The second look is the Mara Hoffman Navy Beams Maxi Dress that rents for $70.  I’d want to wear this little number to a beachy soiree under the stars.  mara-hoffman-rent-the-runway

The third look is the Nicole Miller Angelina Wildflower Maxi Dress that rents for $100.  I’d want to wear this one dockside to a luxury yacht for cocktails….now I only knew someone with said yacht!  nicole-miller-rent-the-runway

Pantone Color of the Year 2015 – Marsala

by

pantone-color-2015-marsala-header

Pantone announced the 2015 Color of the Year last week.  Marsala is the winner!  I was actually happy to see this color selected.  I’m liking the 2015 pick better 2014’s Radiant Orchid.  I know I might be in the minority with this color choice, but I find Marsala to be a more complimentary and flexible color to incorporate into decor.  It’s goes well with so many colors and styles – brights, metallics, neutrals…everything!  I don’t think many people read into the details of the color and why it was selected but as I read through the description I was pretty much agreed 100% with Pantone’s explanation.  I have a snippet below:

The Versatility of Marsala

  • Equally appealing to men and women, Marsala is a stirring and flavorful shade for apparel and accessories, one that encourages color creativity and experimentation
  • Flattering against many skin tones, sultry and subtle Marsala is a great go-to color for beauty, providing enormous highlight for the cheek, and a captivating pop of color for nails, shadows lips and hair.
  • Dramatic and at the same time grounding, the rich and full-bodied red-brown Marsala brings color warmth into home interiors
  • An earthy shade with a bit of sophistication, texture is the story in print and packaging. A matte finish highlights Marsala’s organic nature while adding a sheen conveys a completely different message of glamour and luxury.

 

I’m definitely looking forward to incorporating Marsala into our 2015 designs!
