My favorite Emmy gowns

I love awards last night I was a giddy little girl waiting for the Emmy's. I am secretly obsessed with celebrities and just love to see what they have chosen to wear!  Last night we definitely saw our fair share of one-shoulder gowns as well as navy blue. I don't think I saw any gowns that made my jaw drop but there were some fantastic looking ladies that is for sure. Here are some of my favorite gowns. Or even if I wasn't totally loving the gown the actress was looking so fantastic that it made my favorite list anyway!

What I am wearing

My friend Liz is getting married this weekend. So excited for the wedding! And super excited about what I am going to wear so I thought I'd share with you. I had to pair these super cute yellow Miz Mooz shoes with my Telephone Hour Dressy by Dainty June.  The dress has an adorable little yellow button on the back and is lined with yellow seersucker so I couldn't resist the yellow shoes. Hope you like it!

Fall in love with our fall 2010 bridesmaid collection

Throughout the summer we have been receiving our Fall 2010 collection and we absolutely love it!  So for all you fashionistas out there starting to look for that perfect bridesmaid dress, here are some of the top looks this season has to offer!

Grecian Style gowns.
Channel your inner goddess and try one of these flowing chiffon gowns! This classic and feminine look will bring a touch of romance to your special day.

The Ruffled Dress. Add some sophistication and volume with the flirty detail of ruffles. Whether added to a neckline or cascaded down a skirt, this alluring style is suitable for all ages.

The One-shoulder.
  Show off those sun-kissed shoulders with this modern yet modest look. It’s sure to be a hit!

The Bateau Neck.  Sick of the same old strapless? Designers everywhere are bringing back this mid-century classic. Audrey Hepburn helped to make it famous and now you can too!  

Two-Toned Hues. Why wear one color when you can wear two? Separate-inspired dresses are making double the impact.

Color me happy! Some of the new color offerings of fall: 

Deep Purple - This rich tone looks lovely on all skin tones and will easily carry over into the winter season. 

Smokey or Charcoal Grey - Grey has become the chic neutral color of fall and nice alternative to the little black dress. Try this out in chiffon to create a softer, sultry look.

Cobalt Blue - Add some sass to your wedding with this bright and beautiful shade of blue.  It is the perfect color for a young and fun cocktail dress.

All looks shown above are available at Miss Ruby and are ready for you to try them yourself!

My sister's mountain wedding

I am so happy to finally share these photos with you! My sister's July wedding in Mt Crested Butte, Colorado was amazing. We couldn't have asked for a more beautiful day.  It was so nice to see everything finally come together after a year of planning. My sister looked fabulous in her Alvina Valenta gown, courtesy of Miss Ruby! The bridesmaid dresses (Dessy), flower girl dresses (WaWa) and the mother of the bride's dress (Siri) were all from Miss Ruby. Of course!  Enjoy the photos!

Just in . . .

New dresses just keep rollin in!  Today we received the Aileen dress from the Steven Birnbaum Collection.  If you are looking for a crazy fun dress this is it. It is a strapless empire waist dress with a tulle ball gown.  The skirt hits a little longer than tea length (but can be adjusted to the appropriate length) and it has adorable leaves floating on the skirt as well as on the strapless bodice. So fun!!
