Hello brides! I don’t know where the time has gone, but I’ve been MIA with good reason(s). The main reason being my focus on the many amazingly gracious (and gorgeous!) 2014 brides that I’ve had had the pleasure of working with. So I’m back with a super exciting post.

The roaring decade of the 1920’s not only embodied a period of glamour and drama, it also represented the rise of the “Flapper”, the “new women” who pushed the boundaries of gender identity and represented sexual and economic freedom, something that is still appealing to young women today.
The Flapper Bride epitomizes the hedonistic subculture that made the Roaring Twenties roar!
1920’s flappers were at the forefront of the revolution that challenged Victorian attitudes towards women. They demanded the freedom to live their own lives and had a lot of fun doing it. These women wore obvious make-up, showed their knees and flung themselves into the hedonistic rhythms of Jazz and the Charleston. They threw away their restrictive corsets, cut their hair, smoked, wore trousers and drove fast cars. Life was fun and meant for living!
Louise Brooks plays a bride in 1929’s Pandora’s Box
That era began with the look called “comme le garcon” (or, “like the boy”) – short hair was a big deal – nice girls kept their hair long, as a metaphor for maidenhood. For a woman to chop her hair short was to practically admit she was no longer a virgin. Moreover, they began smoking in public – something no “lady” did.

Greetings brides everywhere! Ladies, I am happy to report that this Summer is really sexy!
If you are on the cutting edge of makeup and bridal fashion, this is so up your alley or down your aisle, whichever you prefer.
The hottest trends from the runway in the Spring/Summer 2011 fashion shows are all about the details. This season there is a special emphasis on unique fabrications and couture details. Organza ruffles, sensuous silks, and creamy satins dominate, whether artfully draped, elaborately beaded, or delicately trimmed with Swarovski crystals. I just love the artful bridal makeup and hair that encapsulates the essence of these collections.
Here are my favorite Summer makeup collections. The looks created by these fashionable houses are inspired by the runway, yet very wearable for a bride.
Summer 2011 Hottest Bridal Beauty Trends
These ready-to-wear collections combine warm and vibrant catwalk-led hues with sensual tones of blush to more intense corals; all designed to create elegant bridal looks.
Spotted on all the runways were “defined brows” paired with gel-lined eyes, a soft creamy complexion and that sought after bridal glow.

Soft shimmer on the eyes, and a bold lip seem to be the common trends. Don’t let the bright color scare you. This season, pouts are sweet and tropical! Be bold this Summer by rocking hues with an unexpected elegance. Dab on a creamy coral, fuchsia pink, tomato red lipstick with fingers for a soft look or apply with a lip brush for precision application. To prevent color from bleeding, outline lips with a matching lip-liner. For super staying power, apply a long-lasting lip stain and then liven it up with an accompanying clear gloss.
