How To Choose The Right Color Dress

When choosing a dress it is always smart to not only make sure the dress fits, but make sure the color looks right on you! There are many ways to find the right color fit. The first step would be basing the color off your hair color. If you are blond go for oranges , blacks, reds, beiges, silvers, taupes, and light blues/ purples/ pinks. If you have Brown hair go for greens,blues, whites, pinks, browns, and golds.
Redheads should usually stay away from reds and oranges. They tend to clash. Black does the opposite effect and will most definitely make you stand out! Greens and ivories will also look gorgeous. Eyes can also be a factor in choosing a dress color. Blue eyes stand out when you wear well of course, blue! Green eyes really pop with purples browns and golds. Brown eyes go better with a green or gold coloring. Here at Blake and company, we hope that this will help you choose the best color on you when choosing a mother of the bride dress!

Kate Middleton’s Wedding Gown Designer Announced? Who is the Designer of Kate Middelton’s Wedding Dress?

who-is-kate-middletons-wedding-dress-designerThe Royal Wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton is just weeks away and there is still much speculation as to who designed the wedding dress.  It seems that the Royal Family still has not confirmed it publicly, but insiders think that Libélula designer Sophie Cranston is the special occasion dress designer of choice.  Middleton has worn other Cranston designs in the past, and may have chosen Cranston for what some are calling the the most influential special occasion dress of the century.

Some special occasion dress insiders speculated that the designer Kate Middleton chose would be either Sarah Burton, Bruce Oldfield or Alice Temperley.  Here at Blake and Company, we were rooting for Daymor Couture, Damianou, Ideas by Barbara, SIA SIA, Scaravelli, JSS Knitwear or VM by Mori Lee

It is also predicted that there will be more than one dress just in case something happens to the first dress.  It is speculated that the designer has not been officially named is to protect the designer from a media frenzy.  You just can’t pay for that kind of publicity in the world of special occasion dress designers.

It is a huge responsibility to create such an unforgettable gown that is certain to be seen by billions around the world.  This special occasion dress is sure to be emulated and immortalized in royal and fashion history.

There are only 2 weeks left before the Royal Wedding and the fashion world waits with baited breath for the special occasion dress of the century to be unveiled.  Bridal industry and special occasion dress insiders predict Middleton’s gown to be replicated many times over as soon as the world gets its first glimpse.
