img_1412Brides are always looking for a way to personalize and customize their wedding look, and a dyed crinoline is a great option.  The slip only shows when you’re “kicking up your heels”, but adds a touch of color.  I have three crinolines to offer in lovely spring-time colors.  All have adjustable waists and would probably fit a size 2-4 up to a 16 or so.  The blue and pink crinolines are brand new and offered at $55.  The vintage lime crinoline is $45.  Please feel free to ask questions at sherry_george@comcast.net.

Just returned from the Opimg_1442en House at Adornments.  Finally got to meet Laura, Alexis and Lucinda from Adornments.  The Grays from Gray Photography were there (adorable couple with amazing work!)  I met Charlie Thompson, who makes incredible titanium and wood rings.  Schakolad was there with their amazing chocolate confections.  I met Ashley Carter from Ashley’s Bride Guide.  She is so cute and it’s easy to see why her site is so popular.

All in all, a great afternoon to show people what I do.  If you missed it, here’s a picture of my display.  Visit the blog often.  I’ll be updating with new things shortly!

img_1278img_1274I found a great deal on these dyeable victorian vintage wedding boots (never worn!), but they were badly discolored and really couldn’t be used for white, however champagne was an option.  Of course, any color could have been used, but I wanted them to be dark ivory.

To prep, I stuffed the shoes with plastic bags after removing the laces.  I used brewed black coffee (still warm!) and literally “painted” the coffee on the shoes as evenly as possible.  I then blotted with paper towels to get all the excess off and as dry as possible.  I dipped the laces in the coffee and left to dry.

As I was completing the project, my husband walked by and I asked him to guess how I’d done it, and his reaction was “why didn’t you use wine, since it’s the color of love? ” Now I’m thinking of doing another pair ASAP!  There are lots of natural products that can be used as dye, and if the shoe was created, as these were, to accept dye, why not?

I added the blue stones for the “something blue”, however I’m thinking of finding some beautiful silk ribbon to use as the laces.  I think that would be a beautiful touch!  As always, contact me at sherry_george@comcast.net.

img_1181I’ll admit I can’t go to a store and not touch practically every piece of fabric or clothing there.  My mother says it began when I was a baby in my stroller when we’d go out and my little hand would reach out and grab the fabrics as we strolled by…

I’ve also had a love affair with colors, all colors — I hold no prejudice!  I’ve never seen a color I couldn’t love for some reason.  So, when the idea came up to start working with bridal fashions, it seemed very logical.  A chance to touch and deal with the best of the best!

As far as wedding colors go, my current favorites are a leafy green and Tiffany Blue.  Can’t get enough of that blue!  I even have a room in my home done in blue and cream!

Weddings give the bride and groom a chance to personalize, and color becomes a big part of that.  So, when planning your wedding, enjoy color!

img_1098These shoes are available for purchase for $30.00.  Size 6M by Delicious, they are new in the box, never worn.  The color is a delicate blue with white polka-dots, featuring an open toe and a 3 3/4 heel.  Very girly and also qualify for the something blue…

Don’t fret if these aren’t your size…I’ll have other options coming your way!  Interested?  Just email me at sherry_george@comcast.net

A few months ago, my oldest daughter accepted her boyfriend’s proposal, and as a family, we began the journey of wedding planning.  After beginning to research options, we found great options for some aspects, and next to none for others.  Thus began my quest to start a service dedicated to helping brides (and others needing formal dresses) find fabulous prices on quality gowns.

Our budget was revised numerous times, and after doing hours and hours of research, I came up with ideas that metamorphosed into this business.  The look on my daughter’s face when she found “the dress” will forever be etched on my mind, as I’m sure many memories will over the years to come.

I’ll explore options with brand new dresses, as well as vintage pieces that can be changed into one-of-a-kind masterpieces.  It’s all about that special day and the feeling a bride has of being so beautiful and in love..

I’ll post pictures, along with measurements of the dresses I have found that are available for purchase.  If you find something in which you’re interested, contact me for an appointment, and you can visit my home studio to try on the dress of your dreams!  Or, if you’re not local, don’t let that stop you!  I have a UPS account, and I know how to use it!
