Bridal Style | Bridal Manicures with Zoya Naturel Satins

Now a days a bridal manicure is almost just as important as the perfect wedding dress or statement heels.  Zoya Naturel Satin Polish Collection is amazing for the perfect neutral bridal manicure that can be rocked with any gown from traditional white/ivory & also blush pink.  This colors are very pigmented and long wearing with your favorite top coat.  Also because they are mostly nudes, they will transition well with your honeymoon style looks if you are honeymooning right after your wedding day!

Another awesome thing about Zoya Nail Polishes is that they are very high quality, made from natural ingredients & the first to remove toxic ingredients such as toluene, camphor, formaldehyde, formaldehyde resin and DBP (dibutyl phthalate) from its formulations!

New York Fashion Week Fall 2015 - Naeem Khan

Its the most wonderful time of the year if you love style & fashion, its New York Fashion Week.  Showing currently at Fashion Week are designers presenting their collections for Fall 2015 Ready to Wear.  What is special about Ready to Wear collections is that designers also present gowns that could possibly be worn for formal events & weddings.

Naeem Khan is a designer who is definitely on the come up with young Hollywood.  This RTW Collection is definitely red carpet ready with the strapless chiffon gowns, black & white color palettes & tuxedo looks.

This collections impressed me because as I mentioned it can also be worn for formal events & even bridal if the brides wants to rock a non traditional or super couture gown for her wedding or even reception.

Wedding Dress - I am in Love with Atelier Pronovias

To use the word obsessed is a bit obsessive, however I am obsessed with the Atelier Pronovias 2015 collection!! *smile*  

These wedding dresses are definitely for the bride that loves haute couture designs & isn't apprehensive to show a little more skin with her dress design.  I love the lace details & illusion necklines on the mermaid style dresses & the shirt/skirt combinations on several of the dresses.
What I also love is that the Atelier Pronovias collection suites the style of a combination of brides from traditional to couture.

If you are getting married in 2015 or 2016 have you identified your bridal style?  Leave a comment below!

I had the pleasure of offering my Bridal Styling expertise last night for VIP night for the first time with BABC & I must say that the designer wedding gown selection did not disappointment!  There were designers such as Anne Barge, Pronovias & Lazaro just to name a few!

If I can offer any advise to the brides attending the show today in Nashville it would be the following:

1.  Arrive early

2.  Wear comfortable shoes & clothes that are easy to get in & out of.  ie., button down shirt, cardigan + tank and jeans & slip in shoes.

3.  Be open minded when attending since it is a Charity Wedding Dress Sale.  It can get pretty interesting in the "Fitting Room Area"!  Come with a smile but a "low key" game face on!  LOL...No for real!

4.  Come with a plan & dresses that you have in mind, however don't limit yourself to trying new things!

5. Bring a couple of family & friends however please remember they will have their opinion of what they want you to look like on "Your Wedding Day" Keep that in mind however don't let their decision sway you from "Saying Yes to the Dress" if you have truly fallen in love with a dress!

6.  Its a celebration....You Are Engaged!  Have Fun, Enjoy the Experience & Dance, Dance, Dance!  (You will understand that one when you arrive)

If you Say Yes to Your Dress while you are at the show today, be sure to use the Hashtag #BABCTour or #BABC on Instagram & Twitter,  I would love to see your wedding dress!!

Cheers ladies & congrats on your engagement!!!
