The Stylist Picks: Cuff Links by David Donahue

Wearing stylish cuff links is a great way to take the groom and groomsmen attire up a notch.  I love cuff links by David Donahue.  Since I tend to work with brides who love any and all shades of purple, I thought to share some HOT cuff links in the color I work with the most for inspiration.

Trend Alert: Pantone Announced Emerald Green As the Color of the Year for 2013

It looks like the color that was hot in the 1980s has made a comeback.  Pantone has chosen the color of the year for 2013 to be Emerald Green – Pantone 17-5641.  We will see more of this color used in fashion, interior design and beauty products (eye shadow, nail polish, etc).

“Green is the most abundant hue in nature — the human eye sees more green than any other color in the spectrum,” Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Color Institute, said in a press release. “It’s also the color of growth, renewal and prosperity — no other color conveys regeneration more than green. For centuries, many countries have chosen green to represent healing and unity.”

So, what do you think about this color for a wedding?

Stylishly Yours,

Healthy Hair Care: Wen by Chaz Dean

It’s Beauty Tuesday and I must share with you a hair product I love!!!!  I’m sure you’ve seen the infomercials about Wen by Chaz Dean.  For months, I contemplated trying this product until a former client attended an event with her hair looking salon fabulous.  When I asked her what did she do differently, she replied “Wen and you have to try it!”  I was sold.

Celebrity stylist, Chaz Dean, developed a gentle cleansing + healthy hydration system.  Unlike ordinary shampoos, his product doesn’t contain laurel sulfate that’s extremely harsh on the hair and scalp.  The Wen Healthy Hair Care System cleanses and conditions the hair in one step without stripping its natural oils.  My hair appears thicker and more hydrated than ever before.

Get your hair white carpet ready with Wen!

Stylishly Yours,

Real Wedding: Jessica and Albert at Crest Hollow Country Club

I know I’ve been MIA for a few months.  5 weddings in 8 weeks, after being on medical leave for a month, had me beyond inundated.  To make up for my absence, here’s an AMAZING cinematic highlight of Jessica and Albert’s wedding from July 28th.  I heart cinematography!!!

I can’t wait to work with Unique Visions Studio in the near future.  They offer top notch photography and cinematography services.

Blush: Pretty in Pink Bridal Gowns

Gwen Stefani was the first (that I can recall) to wear pink for her white carpet debut followed by Reese Witherspoon.  Now this color it is a HOT 2012 bridal style trend…and I’m loving it!

Look at this fit and flare silk organza beauty in blush pink by Romona Keveza.

Ah, rose petal pink bridal gown by Ines Di Santo.

Another blush beauty! Monique Lhuillier with layers of ruffles. 

So what do you think of the pink bridal gown trend?  Would you wear pink for your wedding?
