Floral Fashionista Friday Presents: Tissage Jewelry Inspiration
Friday, July 17, 2009
I love jewelry without a doubt. I love renaissance people without out a doubt. Those people who are so creative they can't contain themselves to one art form; they have to dabble in many creative pursuits because if they did not they would risk implosion! So, when I came across Tory over at Tissage...
I recognized a kindred spirit. I loved her jewelry
instantly; a little bit bohemian , a little bit vintage a whole lot of glam chic!
I've put these earrings on my birthday wish list. Hello! They are purple!
I thought they would be so beautiful for the bride.
Also, so perfect for bridesmaids gifts.
I love this bracelet!
Are you bold?
Not only does Tory make jewelry she makes hats
too! So perfect for the vintage bride.
Perhaps, with these earrings...
...or this necklace.
I love the style of these earrings so perfect for a beach wedding.
Ooh la la! I just love Tissage
! So perfect for brides, bridesmaids, weddings and just about anything. Affordable too.Tissage
is based out of Seattle. Tory loves custom work so don't be afraid to contact her with your request. Check out her shop there are so many beautiful pieces there. I personally can't wait for my birthday and those purple earrings!

Floral Fashionista Fridays Presents:Threadhead Creations
Thursday, June 11, 2009
is a custom wedding dress designer based out of Knoxville; but don't let that discourage you my Canadian Brides.Threadhead
ships worldwide and is so
affordable, even with the prices listed in U.S. currency! Trust me, check out her shop
you will be pleasantly surprised.
The reason I chose to feature these stunning dresses besides being so incredibly artful and unique is that they are created with organic fabrics. I love the idea of wearing something so beautiful on your wedding day, that was created by hand with obvious love, using sustainable fabrics .It just makes sense to me. Look at that dress! Have you ever seen a dress so unique that you actually would want
to wear? This dress reminds me of my post "Cherry Blossom Fairytale".
I love how the two trees reach for each other and the branches crisscross. Two lives become one....sigh...I am a hopeless romantic.
Look at all the colors of sashes you can have to match your color scheme.
The landscape panel is handcrafted and appliqued using many lovely colors of hemp/silk charmeuse. Over forty blossoms accent the intertwined tree limbs.
Hemp and silk combine in this fabric to give a lovely sheen and wonderful drape. This hemp is grown without the use of pesticides or chemical fertilizers and blended with wild peace silk (cocoons are harvested only after the moths have emerged). 60% hemp, 40% silk. Fully lined in 100% silk. This dress is fabulous for a spring wedding.
I love the simplicity of this one and think it could easily fit into a retro-styled wedding.
This one is completely West coast.Perfect for a Vancouver Island wedding! The couple on the path are completely customizable as are the colors and sashes. It is artful.So artful.
Here is your classic, elegant dress with lace up detailing. I know you brides love that! This dress just looks like it would be flattering on any figure.
This is my favorite. I LOVE IT! I love the empire waist. The drape of the chapel train and how it pools on the floor.The tie back sash that I seriously want to create a romantic rose piece for and it's completely understated elegance! LOVE. I can visualize a whole wedding for this dress. My dream would be for a bride to bring me this dress and say, "This is my dress. Go to town. Money is no object." First, I would say," Are you related to Oprah
? " Then, I would say, "Preston Bailey
move on over!"
A girl can dream can't she!!
Thank-you to Threadhead Creations
for giving me my inspiration for this Friday.

Floral Fashionista Fridays Presents: Holly Stalder
Friday, May 29, 2009
is an independent designer from Portland, Oregon.I think her work is fabulous and she is just a hop, skip and jump across the pond from us here in Victoria! Holly uses salvaged antique fabrics and trims in her designs to create modern pieces of wearable art. You can check out her shop here
. She takes custom orders.Hurray!
The Opera Society tiered,corded dress with vintage pearl collar made to order.Just Love. I am hoping one of my brides comes to me saying this is her dress because I have a fabulous idea for a floral piece for this dress that I am just longing to create.
O.K. How sexy is this dress? Ivory silk,chiffon and lace backless dress. I love backless dresses. I think the back is underrated as a very sexy part of the human body male or female.
this caplet by Holly Stalder
! Little Red Riding Hood goes Baroque or something....really just love it. I think it would be fabulous used in a Boudoir photography session for a brave bride. Little lacy, red bra and panty
set, high heels, this caplet and basket of flowers and goodies for Grandma! Can you visualize? The Big Bad Wolf would probably just love it!!
I am really into yellow wedding details these days. Although, I actually detest
yellow for myself and do not own a single yellow piece of clothing or accessory. I love it in spring weddings so bright , cheery and joyful.
A little reclaimed velvet ribbon here, a little Edwardian lace there, salvaged antique applique from a 1920's dress and Voila! Pure Holly Stalder fabulousness here

Floral Fashionista Fridays: Sarah Seven
Thursday, April 30, 2009
Fridays presents the work of a young, talented, independent designer from Portland,Oregon. Her name is Sarah Seven
. I think her designs are fabulous. She designs and sews all the dresses herself in her studio. Sarah takes custom orders which take about four weeks to produce.You can learn about all the details in her shop
Each dress seems to tell a story. When I look at the dresses, I envision a certain style of wedding. This is so inspiring to me as a custom floral designer because it helps me to create a design that befits the bride and her dress. With so many wedding dresses being variations of the same basic style it is so refreshing to see something unique.
If I could have one wish for bridal styles to evolve. I would wish for coloured bridal dresses and shorter hems.....O.K. two wishes! I'm always kind of surprised when these young, hip brides come to see me and they describe their wedding dresses. I guess it surprises me that tradition still plays such a major part in wedding styles for the bride. I truly feel that a bride can hold true to wedding ideals and traditions
but still wear a coloured and unique dress. Maybe, it's just me.....my daughter has said she is going to wear bright red on her wedding day! I can't wait! Well, actually I can!
I love the whimsy of this one for a bridesmaid dress. Yellow is a hot spring trend right now. I also just love the moodiness of the photograph. Kudos to the photographer.
O.K. I love, love this dress. Secret Agent Girl! I wish I had the legs to pull it off....sigh. But how cool would this dress be to put on after the reception? Jump on your new husbands motorbike and take off into the night. Again, way cool photograph. I must ask Sarah
who the photographer is....
I love simple elegance. It is so great to accessorize with flowers
I actually think this dress would be great to wear to a summer wedding
Remember my wish regarding colour? The first bride who contacts
me for a wedding consultation who is not
wearing white, off white, diamond white,cream,taupe or any derivative of these colours will get 20 % off their bridal bouquet! Mention this blog post...so I remember.Sarah
donates 10% of her profits to charities. Book her while you can.... because the girl is in demand!
