Here’s what they say:
“Epoch Couture modest bridal gowns help brides seeking coverage without sacrificing style and elegance.
Each gown is hand-created and not mass produced, featuring gorgeous fabrics such as exquisite imported lace, soft creamy satin and crisp silk taffeta. Discerning Brides will love the extra care and attention to detail that goes into creating each bridal gown.
Because the designs are expertly crafted, we can accommodate the different needs of modesty at no extra charge. Additionally, most silver beadwork can be replaced with white for LDS Temple approval.
The Epoch couture line is a vision of originality while maintaining the allure of vintage-inspired, timeless elegance.
Mrs. Welcher drew inspiration from the women in her life. Each amazing design has a personality of those who inspired these incredible bridal gowns.”
Here’s what we say:
I like the gowns that they have. These being my favorite.
I know there has been a bunch of new modest companies that have popped up, or at least I hadn’t known about them. I will try to get back on track to review these companies and see how they stack up. We are always glad to find modest clothes to add to our repertoire.
Junee has a basic, but well priced collection of clothes. The colors are classic–most are black, white or grey with a few pastels dabbled in there.
They only have three dresses, all black, and no accessories, yet. Hopefully they are coming. It is worth a look, especially if you need a comfortable basic skirt. They have a ton of choices, all around $20 to $60.
The Cut, a blog from New York Magazine posted this:
“New York Times fashion critic Cathy Horyn loved Ivanka Trump’s custom Vera Wang wedding dress. She just died over the sleeves, which Wang had to add since the groom is Orthodox and Ivanka just converted. “We’re so used to seeing brides in strapless dresses that Ms. Trump’s gown made a fresh statement,” Horyn writes. Wang had about a month to make the dress, which was inspired by Grace Kelly’s wedding dress. Ivanka liked it because of the “lace and the royal factor.” Wang hopes to continue making modest wedding gowns in the future.
“She was actually very much about being covered and I seized on the chance to do a dress that wasn’t naked and very Hollywood.”
… Did she think Ms. Trump might start a trend with her sleeves? “She might very,” Ms. Wang said. “Nothing would make me happier. I’ve been doing strapless dresses for 15 years. It’s tiring.”
She’s right — all those naked brides with their bare shoulders are so cliché. Women should be walking down the aisle with all kinds of sleeves. Pirate sleeves, batwing sleeves, Gareth Pugh armor sleeves, gorilla-arm sleeves … or should they?”
Anna Sui’s design’s have always had a foot in rock and roll. This spring 2010 line is no different, but it also has punches of wild colors, feminine flounces, and daring patterns. Spring is going to be fun!
ELIZA magazine‘s fall issue has a travel theme. They released this picture of Glee actress Jayma Mays, with a plane. I get it… travel!
They are picking a few blogs to feature who write about their favorite traveling memory. Here is mine….
My favorite trip has been to New York. Last time I went I stayed at The Mercer Hotel, saw the lovely Taye Diggs and Idina Menzel in the lobby. Love you guys!
Saw Chicago, In the Heights, and Wicked. Love, love, and love. Brought my mom with to Chicago, a little uncomfortable with all those Fosse pelvic movements, but what are you going to do?
Ate at Corton (239 W. Broadway modern, yet haute), Artichoke Basille’s Pizza (328 E. 14th St.) and Cafe Boulud (20 E. 76th St. One of Ms. Astor’s favorites), to name a few. Eating is always a high point when there is so many amazing places to choose from.
Went to my two favorite museums in the world: The Frick and The Guggenheim. The Gug gets a lot of play, but sometimes the Frick is looked over. The location is this amazing mansion, I could be entertained just looking at that, then they throw in amazing art on the walls. Don’t miss the Whistler portraits–so fashionable.
I love the red trend for fall. Red is so classic, yet always a show-stopper. Vogue captures this trend in an ode to fairy tales with a perfect balance of kitche and glamour. Brilliant!
