Fashionably Fresh | Rehearsal-Dinner Dress

At Swann Soirées, we constantly seek to include personal touches and find realistic alternatives to create beautiful weddings. We aim for our clients to be excited about their day, every step of the way…to be encouraged to make planning decisions that fit them and be inspired to add elements which will reflect their vision for the celebration. I’ve learned over the last few months as part of the Swann Squad that this ideology carries beyond wedding planning and is applicable to every part of life… such as fashion!

Being a fashion student, I have to stay conscious about what I am wearing, besides, I’m responsible for keeping the Swann Squad up to speed in this area, we all love a good outfit…and shoes, bags, accessories, etc. Not to mention I cannot let our clients put their bridal party in outfits that are priced higher than an average plane ticket! It can be difficult for us to always keep up with trends, especially when there is something new and upcoming every season…but creativity is free and ideas abound, it’s all a matter of patiently finding what fits our style (and wallet!).

Currently, I am totally enamored by Spring 2011 fashion trends. Especially the recent “70’s Glamour” look influencing the fashion world! The lady-like pieces of lace, crochet, macramé, and items such as bell-bottoms and tassels are both marvelous and fun!

I decided to write a blog post that takes one of the newest delicious looks and re-creates it within the limits of an average budget- I am after all a student and simply can’t afford the $2000 Chanel bag pictured below. For my inaugural post, I was inspired by girly street-style that is perfect for a relaxed rehearsal dinner,  meeting with clients for a venue walk-through, or simply a day about town! Stay encouraged & be inspired!

xxo!

Inspire Me Monday: Think Pink!

October is not only known for the ghosts, goblins, and trick or treaters that come out for Halloween, it has also become a nationally recognized month for the 2.5 million survivors of breast cancer. Today’s “Inspire Me Monday” is dedicated to the tenacious resolve of all those who have  courageously fought this disease in one way or another, and supported the seemingly endless battle that has become the second leading cause of cancer death for women. To all of you we say; Thank you for being an inspiration of strength, beauty, and hope.
