A Bride, A Room, A Bloom

I pulled this picture out of J. Crew to put on my inspiration board. This bride is stunning to me. I think she is so gorgeous without being over the top. The dress, the jewelry, the hair, the flowers, perfection!Another room that could describe me in one picture. When I will I stop?!?! The picture is from Veranda July/August 2009, another F-A-B-U-L-O-U-S issue, get it now. Want a sneak peek? Visit Wanderings of a Wannabe for more pictures and wonderful design inspiration.
Okay I need your honest opinion. Do y'all like this dress? You won't hurt my feelings if you say NO. It is one of those things I can't decide if it is cool or if it is bad, bad. I need your opinion! Dress HERE.
I hope you have a great weekend!!!!

One More Thing! A big Thank You to Jolena at Black Ribbon Interiors for the One Lovely Blog Award, you are too sweet!!!

Love,love,love that dress from J.Crew. I flagged in my catalog- not knowing why. :)

And I love that image from Veranda. I could see that in my 'one day' house.

I really like the F21 dress. It's really cute! I may head that way today or tomorrow.

Oh I love JCREW wedding dresses. I wish I had looked at them when I was getting married so pretty.

I must run out and get that Veranda issue. I swear all these photos are amazing and you know I'm loving that lamp with the cork shade.

I love the dress! I say go for it! I'm not sure if I would wear it with the flower, but I love the rest of it.

I like the dress minus the flower. have a good weekend

I like the dress...I'd have to see it on, but from the photo, it looks pretty cool. I agree with High-Heeled Foot, though, that perhaps the flower at the top could go. And, I love the table and china cabinet from Veranda. So many pretty things, so little money. :)

How random.. my friend is basically modeling her wedding after that photo. Dress, necklace and romantic hair!

Having met you now, I can say that this dress would be perfect for you!! GET IT!

I say go for the dress! I love the colors and the shape. I don't think I would keep the flower on, but that's all up to you. If you do get it, you have to show us how it looks! :)

I also love that JCrew dress... so simple, yet so elegant. She looks marvelous in that photo.

Have a fantastic weekend!

FROM THE RIGHT BANK said...

I've been eyeing that cork lampshade all week. :) If you want my honest opinion, there's something about the pattern of that dress that seems a little off. Just my 2 cents. Enjoy your weekend!

Love that dress from J Crew. Gorgeous!! I can't decide if I like the F21 one or not...

Angel said...

Too funny! I had the exact same dilemma about the F21 dress...so I ordered it and decided the final verdict would have to come after seeing the fabric and the fit in person. I say go for it, you can always send it back!

I love that J.Crew wedding dress, so simple and elegant! I also think the F21 dress would look great minus the flower. That little belt on the dress is so cute! Go for it!

i loveee jcrew brides...i want to be one!

dress is so adorable, although i'd switch out the belt and probably go w/o the flower (depending on how i felt that day).

thanks for the shout out! have a great weekend :)

Love that J Crew bride, she is so beautiful without being fussy, you are exactly right!

Love the image from Veranda.

About the dress- I could take it or leave it. I know that doesn’t give you any help haha- but I'd have to see it on you to decide if it was cute or not :)

PS~Erin said...

Love it all. Your style & taste is spot on in my opinion!!

Gracie said...

Oohh gorgeous! That dress is lovely. I love that wedding dress and picture...So so pretty!!

Love j crew bridal and wish they were around when I got married.Maybe my daughters will be able to dress from there when they marry! The Veranda shot is beautiful and the cork shade is great!I also love the light floors, pine table and the softest shade of blue/green from the bottles.yum. Fun post.

down and out chic said...

jcrew model is fantastic as is the room you picked (love the rustic details).
as for the dress, i'm going to say no, i don't like it. i feel like it's too much. perhaps if you removed the flower and put a different belt over it, but there's something about the color combo and pattern that's too much for me.
i think if you don't instantly love something, you might be better of waiting to spend your money on something you just know is right for you.
have a great weekend:)
