Are sleeves a style consideration or a necessity? Both, I believe.
The perfect sleeve can enhance a wedding gown. A long, narrow sleeve is flattering and fashion-forward while an elbow-length sleeve is stylish but also provides coverage. If you are confident about your arms, then sleeveless (strapless) will work for you. The sleeveless gown is a signature for me as it is timeless, chic and sophisticated while also practical for dancing.
If you choose sleeves, remember the proportion of the armhole will impact the construction of the sleeve and the range of your movement. Most importantly, choose something you feel comfortable and confident in. -XO, Vera
A Hint of Mystery
Vera Wang's Fall 2014 Ready-to-Wear Collection debuted last week to rave reviews. Inspired by 'dark romance,' the line consists of both tailored and textured fashions in moody charcoal grays and blacks. Coats and coat dresses, cashmere and wool pullovers and cardigans, trousers and pencil skirts walked the runway in mix of bold tartans, solids and floral prints.
Family and friends gathered for Laura and Ross’s autumn wedding in the breathtakingly ornate St. Paul Cathedral in Pittsburgh. Following their wedding ceremony was a literary-inspired reception with heaps of beautiful books and blush pink and purple floral decor. Find inspiration from this timeless wedding at Style Me Pretty.

Dress Diary: Maeve
An “is she or isn’t she” detail—a skin-revealing cutout thinly veiled with flesh-colored illusion tulle—is the most barely-there embellishment yet in my collection this season. I really wanted to explore how I could achieve a high level of visual impact in the most understated way possible.
