bows bows bows

I just adore a good bow... I'm a girly, girl!  I drool over BOWS!  I remember my first Formal Gown was from Saks. It was a red Victor Costa Gown, with a huge bow that was part of the front panel, AMAZING!  My next gown was a black velvet and blue peau de soie, TO DIE FOR dress with a huge green bow on the back (that gown is in a trunk in my garage). Then there was the pink ruched, drop waisted ruffled gown from the new store in town, Nordstrom (it was the eighties).
OH I LOVE BOWS, 25 yrs later!

This Dior wedding gown is from a Victoria Magazine Shoot 1992.  I wanted this gown so badly but I was just to small to pull it off.  It is English net with an amazing silk bow!

Let Them Eat Cake


Everyone has their idea of the most important elements of a wedding.   For me, its a gorgeous gown, a stunning bouquet and yummy CAKE! I love a good cake. Not a fussy, over worked cake, just a pretty, classic cake that looks like it was baked in grandmas kitchen
