We are so excited to be able to offer in the boutique this fall the debut line of dresses by SOCIAL, a highly-anticipated new division of The Dessy Group.

This new line features 8 stunning designs in the inaugural collection and will be available in sizes 0 – 30 and an array of different colors. Each dress is made to order of the highest quality materials, so you will be getting an item that has to be specially ordered as opposed to something off-the-rack.

As this is for the Fall 2011 season, we will begin taking orders after the end of July. Standard production will take up to 12 weeks, but Rush Cuts are available for a nominal surcharge and will take up to 8 weeks for production.

Prices will range from $165.00 to $260.00, depending on the style.

close-up of style #E19110

Remember the gorgeous ivory dress by Marchesa that Kate Hudson wore to the 2010 Golden Globes Awards? It was an ingenious take on wearing a wedding gown to something other than a wedding, but it’s actually a move that has been done by many a pageant girl [it’s the reason the term “Winning White” was coined for gals who won wearing a white dress].

Kate Hudson in a Marchesa 2010 Spring Bridal Collection

Truthfully, we absolutely love the fact that you CAN wear a wedding gown for more than just a walk down the aisle. We’ve actually done so ourselves either for competing in (and winning) our own pageants or just to wear for a formal event. It’s a fabulous trend that we hope to see much more of in the mainstream fashion scene!

Now….  if you can’t afford your very own Marchesa gown for your event, have no fear, because we have the perfect fashion doppelganger for the budget-conscious fashionista! It’s style #E19110 from Black & White by BGH and it will have all eyes on you at your next event. This gown has SO much versatility….. it makes the perfect wedding dress – be it for a traditional, informal or destination wedding – or it could work as a winning pageant or prom gown. Plus: your wallet will sing your praises at the price – an affordable $460.00 compared to the $8000.00 (and up) that you would pay for a gown by Marchesa.

Party Favors ~

Flower Seed Packets

These favors are perfect for those who wish to have an eco-friendly gift to give their guests. You can take any flower of herb seed packet and put it into a white envelope that you’ve hand-decorated by either stamping or adding computer-decorated labels. Punch two small holes at the top and add the ribbon color of your choice [a sheer or shimmery ribbon gives an extra touch of elegance].  Place in a basket by the door with a note inviting your guests to grab one on their way home!
