Reem Acra Fall 2015

Discreet side pockets sewn into the gowns? This could just be a really good selling point in my opinion.  Coupled with lace, tulle, and appliqués, Reem Acra’s Fall Winter 2015 is simply beautiful and thoughtful.

With your morning coffee in hand, do scroll down to see my favourites from the collection. The show happened on 10 October 2014. Hope you enjoy and have a wonderful week ahead!

Designer Spotlight: Christos 2015

I am a fan of Christos. I’ve written about the brand previously and given a chance, I would wear a Christos gown if I were to get married all over again. So it’s no surprise that I’d be featuring it again starting with their Fall 2015.

The things I love about the collection: it was all about white lace, a stark contrast to the colour of Spring 2015. Here we a see a softer shade of lace, of satin, of silk. Patchwork. Intricate. Romantic. All the things we can’t say “No” to, right?

Inspiration: Elie Saab Spring-Summer 2014

Sometimes we see dresses from the runway and we wish we can wear something like that to an occasion. Like some of you, I look on to designer collections for inspiration and design ideas. Elie Saab is a Lebanese designer who is able to inspire his customers. He is indeed on the wish list of most of us. For this collection, he featured soft white dresses with sprinkles of black and fuchsia print. Then to add to the mix of the soft palette, he added salmon and emerald with my favourite combination of lace and sequins.

Today I wish to share my favourite designs from his collection. Here’s a glimpse of his latest work for Spring Summer 2014. Thank you for dropping by, have a great week ahead. Elie Saab S-S 2014Elie Saab SpringSummer 2014 Elie Saab SS 2014 Elie Saab Spring Summer 14 Elie Saab Spring-Summer ElieSaabSpringSummer ElieSaabSpringSummer2014 Elie Saab Spring Summer 2014 ElieSaab Spring-Summer 2014 Elie Saab S.S 2014 Elie Saab Spring-Summer-2014 Elie Saab-Spring Summer 14Featured designer: Elie Saab

Paul and Lala | An Elegant Wedding – The Peninsula Manila | Metrophoto

Awhile back I featured the same-day-edit of Paul and Lala’s wedding by Ian Cruz Films and I couldn’t wait to see the pictures. Over the weekend, I received the beautiful wedding pictures so you could imagine my excitement to feature today’s post.

Oly Ruiz of Metrophoto photographed Lala’s natural relaxed state and captured Paul’s overwhelming happiness. The bride’s aura truly came out in their pictures and I just love it when a bride is so calm but you know deep down, she’s at peace with herself and having a fantastic time. And let’s not forget her wedding dress made by Veluz, it was elegant and fitting for a beautiful bride.

Excited to share them with you, here are the wedding pictures from Metrophoto.
