Fashion Alert: Nina’s Couture

I recently met Nina Gleyzer at a networking event and as soon as she opened her portfolio I instantly fell in love with her work. All of Nina’s designs are one of a kind and perfect for a bride who wants a unique dress for her wedding.

Her bridal collection has recently been showcased on the runway of New York’s Fashion Week. Nina also likes to add special features to her designs. The dress featured below is not only gorgeous but it also GLOWS in the dark. This dress would be perfect for an evening wedding.

Check out the entire collection of Nina’s gowns, apparel, and accessories.

Fashion Alert: New Bridal Collections

J. Crew started the trend and now Anthropologie has joined the club! Anthropologie just released their own bridal gown collection and brides everywhere are taking notice. Today’s brides have so many options when shopping for their dream dress. Boutiques and haute couture salons are stepping out of the limelight, as familiar stores like J. Crew, White House Black Market and Anthropologie debut their own budget-friendly designs. The brides are already familiar with the brand’s style, which makes dress shopping easier.

Anthropologie’s line is ultra feminine:

Proof that metallic’s are back!

As most of America prepares to watch the Grammy’s tonight (thinking I need to do my commentary on twitter tonight so follow along @ellybevents), there were tons of pre Grammy parties with magnificent dresses to match.

We all know that if you want to be up on the latest fashion trends from the runway, it will be proven at the awards ceremonies.

Here are some of the fashions from all of the pre-grammy parties:

How fashion week can inspire you

Fashion week is our favorite time of the season. I truly believe all fashion despite the industry starts right there on the catwalk.

While viewing the images from Rachel Roy’s new collection I immediately thought – glamour, sophistication and style. Her pieces would be a perfect fit for girls night out on the town, rehearsal dinners, and honeymoon wear.

Which is your favorite piece?

Bag Lady!


1) How often are you invited to events and then realize that you don’t have a bag to match the outfit you want to wear?

2) Is your living situation tight right now and you don’t have the closet space to hold an intensive bag collection?

3) Do you love to keep up with the current fashions like celebrities, but don’t have the cash to spend like they do?

Well not to fret!

All That Bags is a rental website where you can rent some of the hottest designer bag. Some of the designers include Betsey Johnson, BCBG MaxAzaria, Burberry, Christian Dior, Coach, Dolce & Gabbana, Fendi, Gucci, Jimmy Choo, Kate Spade, Marc Jacobs, Michael Kors, Prada, and many more. The overall concept works like this:

  • You can either become a member for $4.95 per month or $59.00 per year.
  • Guest rentals are accepted as well for people who don’t want to become members.
  • Designers are broken up into four rental pricing categories.
  • You have the option of renting a bag for a week, month, and even up a year.

The perks is that you get to carry the hottest fashions on your arm for a small fraction of the price it cost to purchase!

Cover Up In Style

Although the warm weather clothes have been packed away, strapless wedding gowns are worn all year round. But when the weather outside is frightful, there are plenty of stylish ways for brides to keep cozy & warm.
Bolero’s are cute little jackets intended to protect brides from the cold. They are also sometimes a requirement for religious ceremonies.
