Bridal Style Inspiration: Vintage Glam in the South of France

by Azure

Channeling the sophisticated elegance of fashion & style in the South of France throughout the Fifties and Sixties, Alice Temperley's Resort 2013 collection is a definite show stopper! First off, the hair and makeup Alice chose to pair with this collection is spot on. You can't beat the retro waves hairstyle with a soft side part, especially when it cascades around a fresh, natural face. Bold red lips and dramatic cat eyes would have been 'expected' choices, and I'm always happy to...

New York Fashion Week Fall 2011 Recap: Get Inspired, Brides!

by Azure

New York Fashion Week is over, but the inspiration goes on and on! One of my favorite places to get inspired is the designer catwalk.
