Ode to an Icon

image

If you’ve been following my blog for a while, there’s a chance you’ve read me say, “You can’t go wrong with Jenny Packham, Carolina Herrera, and Oscar de la Renta.”

It saddens me to know this brilliant man is now designing gowns in heaven. But his legacy will live on forever.

In my humble opinion, he was the best of the best. You can’t name any iconic celebrity, or public figure, that did not wear his designs. And his wedding gowns are among my all time favorite. Here are some that made me swoon:

 
My condolences to his family, friends, and staff. He will be missed!

DAY TWENTY-ONE: In My Bag. What’s inside my bag? My ticket for tonight’s Little Big Town and Brett Eldredge, and Brothers Osborne’s concert. I feel Jesse Spano excited! I’ve been waiting a LONG time to see LBT in concert. And Brett has quickly become one of my favorites. I only know one Brothers Osborne songs, but just as excited to be introduced to more of their music.

I can’t wait, specially since its LBT’s album release concert for Pain Killer!

DAY TWENTY: Strength. You have to have some serious muscle and strength in order to carry a woman’s purse around. I lift so I can carry all my stuff lmao! Oy! Do we really need all this stuff? Yes. Yes we do. I’d be lost without it.

PS – This is my favorite purse by Lulu Guinness and sorry I was a bit late today. Whoops!

For the Curvy Brides

Not all brides are a size zero. Some are even in the double digits. I know gasp, how shocking! I, for one, could admire a beautiful thin model wearing a gorgeous wedding gown. But the fact of the matter is that brides, come in all shapes and sizes.

As much as I love the sexy back wedding dress trend, I’m a plus size girl. I would look ridiculous in one. The last thing I want, is to be standing at the altar and having people stare at my back rolls. I love it, I think it’s sexy, but not for me.

Luckily, there are some amazing designers that are up with the times, and have dresses for us girls with extra cushion. And here are some of my favorites. Enjoy!

Also, most of the JLM Collections are available in size ranging from 2-28. The Wtoo by Watters lines, has a Curvy selection. And even Jenny Packham opened her 2015 collection with a plus size gown.

I can’t wait to see what other designers jump on board. Just because we are large doesn’t mean we don’t care about fashion. I want to look as cute and sexy as a size two. Am I right ladies?

Before I go, let me introduce you to Pretty Pear Bride it’s a magazine dedicated to curvy and plus size brides. You have to check it out. You have to.

Are you a plus size bride? What brand was your gown? Feel free to share pictures!
