Say No To The Dress

Disclaimer: this post is for the ladies. I love me a lady in a tuxedo. I personally feel super powerful and sexy wearing them. Call it a pantsuit, call it menswear for women - whatever it is, I love it. And I especially love women that rock it on their wedding day. So I thought I’d indulge in my love for the pantsuit and share some of my favorites today.

I gotta start with my all-time favorites which are way out of my price range, but needed to be included. These two Alexander McQueen from the Resort 2013 collection are STUNNING.


I love this high-wasted tuxedo that Leelee Sobieski rocked back in ‘11


Apparently the CFDA awards in ’11 brought out the amazing tuxes cause I also adore this one Kirsten Dunst wore


These Zach Posen wide leg trousers are sadly sold out, but I love the art deco feel, and with a bit more of a feminine touch

Rachel Zoe knows a thing or two about menswear for women. I love this whole look with the 70’s flare


Finally, East Side Bride had a great post about how and where ladies should shop for suits. It includes some helpful advice and the comments section had good tidbits as well.

Oh, and OffBeat Bride just featured a wedding with bridesmaids in suits. BRIDESMAIDS IN SUITS! I love it. LOVE. IT.

If you rocked a tux at your wedding, send it to me to share! I love them and it will bring me much tailored happiness!


Friday Links: Naked cakes and eff weddings

  I realize this is a bit extreme considering I work in the wedding industry. But I've never hidden the fact that I don't really love the traditional wedding industry, so with tongue in cheek, I proclaim that I really want this t-shirt:

You must also check out their "weddings we love" - especially if you want excellent procrastination material

Naked cakes have been around for a while on Pinterest, but here's a great round-up from Snippet & Ink. I'm the odd duck who really doesn't like a lot of frosting, so I love this idea. And it'd fit so well with a rustic, casual reception or celebration.

East Side Bride featured an awesome illegal gay wedding (with a tux jacket I am lusting after, something fierce)

Finally, this has been making the rounds for quite a while, but I needed a pick-me-up this week and this always brings a smile to my face (and, let's face it, also makes me cry. but not ugly cry. good cry). Enjoy. I give you my favorite proposal of all time (except my own, obviously).
