Color of the Year- Emerald!!

Instead of featuring one Dress of the Week, we decided to focus on the Color of the Year, Emerald!  Emerald is a gorgeous color that looks great with almost all hair colors and skin tones.  Pantone innovators describe Emerald as, "a color of elegance and beauty that enhances our sense of well-being, balance and harmony."  What better way to bring in this shade of green than adding it into your Big Day!  The Dessy Group offers TONS of styles in different fabrics and shades of green!  Check out some of our favorite Alfred Sung styles!

Love more than one dress style?  No problem!  Alfred Sung is PERFECT for mixing & matching!  All of their dresses come in 2 fabrics (Dupioni-Raw Silk or Peau de Soie-Taffeta), that each come in a shade of Emerald!  Most of these dresses can come short or long.

The Dessy Group is also home to a few other lines that feature other fabrics, mainly Chiffon & Satin options.  All of their dresses come in a variety of different colors, including green! Below you will find one of our new favorite Chiffon gowns featured in Shamrock!

Jenny Yoo also offers fabulous styles in this shade of green!  Jenny introduced a new Social Collection this Spring, below you will find some of our personal favorites!

Mix & Match in between these two styles! You can do the same mix & match with the next two dresses as well!

And finally, one of Twirl Lexington's favorite designers, Lynn Lugo, can make all of her dresses in the Pantone Color of the Year!  Lynn truly captures southern charm in her collection, and her ad featured in Martha Stewart Magazine last spring was a complete show-stopper!

A recent Twirl Lexington bride was ahead of the trend and had her girls in this gorgeous color for her December nuptials.

We hope you have enjoyed this sneak peek into the Color of the Year.  Set up your appointment today (859-309-2493 or to come and see all of the Emerald possibilities!



Lexington's Dress of the Week

"Classic with a Fun & Flirty Side"

My favorite for this week is Alfred Sung D465.  It's a new bridesmaid style for Fall 2010 and I'm absolutely in love with it!  The dress is perfect for just about everyone and your bridesmaids would most definitely wear it again.  It's structured with a band just above the natural waistline so it will create a lovely hourglass figure.  Plus there's a bow center-front on the waistband and a ruffle around the neckline so everyone can get in touch with their girly side while still being sophisticated.  

The bodice works for any bust size: There's plenty of dress there to hold in a larger cup size and the ruffles can be tacked to provide more coverage.  For women with a smaller chest (like me) the deep V and ruffles help to accentuate what they have.  Oh, and you can wear a regular bra instead of suffering through a strapless all day!  The skirt is what I like to call a modified pencil.  There's slight pleating in the middle where is connects to the waistband which will camouflage anything one might be unhappy about with their hips and tummy.  Also, there's a slit in the back of the skirt that will allow your girls to be able to walk and dance with ease :)

The dress comes in short or long, two fabrics: peau de soie or dupioni, and in many different colors so it will work for a wedding in any season.  It's also very affordable coming in under $200.  We've only had it in for two days and everyone that has seen it loves it!
