Wedding Wednesday!

In honor of his Spring/Summer 2012 runway show tonight, my wedding inspiration of the week comes from designer, Rolando Santana and his Atelier Collection. Just look at these gorgeous dresses! I absolutely adore the blush color of the bridesmaid dresses- I just think it’s so airy and delicate. Both the wedding gown and the bridesmaid dresses are made of raw edge, hand pleated silk gazar.

Wouldn’t it be great if you could be involved in the design process of your wedding gown? After all, it is the most important dress you’ll ever wear…Well, with Rolando Santana, you can work one-on-one with the designer himself to make your dream dress come to life!

The Rolando Santana S/S 2012 show will be streaming LIVE tonight at 6pm on Metro Velvet. Don’t miss it!

I just love the way red and leopard look together (even if its just a hint of leopard)! This was one of the last beautiful, sunny days. As much as I love the Summertime, looking forward to Fall fashions somewhat lessens the end of summer blues for me.  Busy week coming up with some NYFW coverage so stay tuned!

A Shock of Orange

This orange number from the talented Rolando Santana, fits like a glove! It’s so comfortable and sleek, you just feel so great wearing it. I love his stuff!! See more here and stay tuned for more pieces I’ll be showcasing from him 🙂

Sidenote: This vintage Fendi scarf is one of my favorite items that I own. It was given to me by my great aunt who came to visit from Italy years ago. I complimented her on it and she took it right off and handed it to me to keep! How sweet and generous is that?? She’s adorable.
