I wanted to wish each of you a very Merry Christmas. The Bridal Wishlist will be taking a break this week but I will be back next week with a year in review. So check back next week. I also wanted to thank all of my loyal readers. I really appreciate you and will be working hard in 2008 to bring you more fabulous ideas. XOXOXO
Here are some beautiful bridesmaids finds from Neiman Marcus. The Rickie Freeman dress is my absolute favorite! There is a sheer lace piece between the collar and the top part of the dress. Magnificent.
Charley Harper was brilliant. His illustrations are some of my favorite artistic works. Finally, someone is selling his work online. I was reading Neu Black's post about Gallery One, who is selling his prints online. Finally, his work is now easily accessible for purchase. I love this print. It is called Cardinal Courtship. See more prints at Gallery One.
I posted about the most wonderful dress by Julie Haus in October. So I checked back to see what she was offering now. To my great surprise, there are some real wedding alternative gems on her site. I love her. Her dresses are so dainty and lovely. See more on her web site here. There are plenty of bridesmaids alternatives as well. Here are my favorites:
I am slowly but surely losing the battle to ignore Christian Louboutin. His shoes are everywhere I turn. There isn't any escape for me. They are in every magazine that I read. Calling me. Begging me to pay attention. Luring me in with their fabulousness. How can I turn my head to shoes like these? I can't anymore. You win Christian Louboutin. I raise my white flag to your greatness. Find his shoes at Neiman Marcus, Saks, Bergdorf Goodman, Barney's, Bluefly, and a host of other luxury retailers. Here are my favs for those brides/bridesmaids that want to be modern and push the envelope:

The first dress is my absolute favorite. You can see his enter 07-08 collection here. Here are my favorites (I had so many):
