Whether you choose to wear a classic strapless bra, a low-back bustier or the updated “stick-on-bra”, the proper foundations are necessary for achieving the perfect fit. These oh-so-important undergarments create smoother lines and provide support under your pretty dress!
This classic strapless style is shown “before” without the right bra and “after” worn with a bustier. As you can see, the right bra makes all the difference!
Our body skimming silk charmeuse feels like butter against the skin and requires the right foundations to look and feel as luscious as possible. Nude, seamless undies and a stick-on-bra do just the trick (as made evident in the “before” and “after” photos shown above).
While dress shopping, it is best to come prepared with neutral underwear and a great bra. Head on over to our favorite local shops, Just Like A Woman for a variety of undergarments and Oh Baby to add some goodies to your boudoir!
In addition to the right undergarments, alterations are also an important part of the process in making your dress fit like a glove!
For all of the “brides to be” our there, we’ve got you covered for accessorizing your bridesmaids with custom and personalized gifts! Our locally, handmade lines of Valhalla earrings and Kelley Maria bracelets and belts can be customized to your liking.

Your wedding is this summer and you want your friends to look fabulous…we have the perfect party dress for you! We are featuring just a few of our “ultimate bridesmaid dresses.” Each of these unique pieces can be worn several ways, come in a rainbow of colors, and are available in two very different (and equally luscious) silk materials.
Penelope is an adjustable dress that can be worn with an ultra-low back or cinched up higher, depending on the look you are going for.
Farrah can be worn a few different ways, which gives each bridesmaid the ability to look slightly different from one another.
Emma is the most versatile of them all! Not only does this dress come in several fabric and color options, it can be worn in a variety of ways. Shown above in a short sleeve hand-washed silk dupioni and below in a long sleeve silk charmeuse.
All of these dresses are one size fits all, which means there is no need for measurements or fittings. Just throw it on, adjust and you are ready to party!
We are excited to introduce the debut of Julianna! An elegant, romantic and classic dress that is available with three different sleeve options – long, flutter and sleeveless. Shown above in our white lace, this dress is a simple and stunning piece to say “I do” in.
We are ringing in the new year with light and bright colors and have many new dresses to show for it. Start the year off right with a great dress for 2012!
