Vera Wang


When I was looking through the new Vera Wang dress collection for David’s Bridal, I couldn’t help but notice the fabulous accessories available as well.  Here are a few of them that I thought you might like:

Crystal Headband: $98

Crystal Comb: $128

Floral Sash: $78

Crystal Sash: $148

Satin Pump: $58

Glitter Peep Toe: $78

Overall, I found the accessories from White by Vera Wang to be very current and somewhat reasonably priced (other than the hair accessories).  The biggest problem is the number of options is very limited and leaves me feeling like every bride will be choosing the same things.  Hopefully, as time goes on, the accessory line will grow and become a little more unique.  Happy Thursday!

Today is my last day at my old job, but it is going to be pure insanity because it is the day when all the new students arrive on campus.  I am pre-writing this post since I know I will not have any time to post on the 17th.  Tomorrow will be my first day at my new job…drinking from the fire hose before being thrown to the wolves next week.  YAY!  I am really excited but really nervous.  PRAY!

So…Dressy Wednesday:

David’s Bridal recently started selling a new dress line, White by Vera Wang.  I was intrigued because Vera Wang is such a prominent and upscale name in the bridal industry, so I took a little stroll through the online “aisles” of the new collection.  Here is what I found:

Dress 1:

I love the pleated taffeta layers!  They are on point with some of the current bridal style trends.  This dress is $1000.  I know that it sounds like a lot, but it really is a great deal in the bridal world.

Dress 2:

This organza flange skirt dress comes in a stunning blush tone (or ivory for the more traditional types).  I love the flattering gathers of the fitted bodice in contrast with the free flowing layers in the skirt of the dress.  (You know that I love a pink dress!)  This dress retails for $1200.

Dress 3:

This dress is the more structured and one shouldered version of dress 2.  It love the fitted satin bodice in contrast with the texture, layers and flow of the organza skirt.  It would be fab with a sash!  It is also $1200.

Dress 4:

The dreamy ballgown!  Love the sweet-heart neckline and simplicity.  Only $800!

Dress 5:

I adore the contrast between the ethereal tulle skirt and the traditional lace bodice.  So romantic.  Retails for $1200.

Overall the general consensus on White by Vera Wang is stylish and luxurious with a reasonable price tag.  I really love the line.  I hope to tackle some of the other products she is offering at David’s Bridal later this week.

Happy Wednesday!
