Echinacea Flower Power

The Echinacea flower is one of my favorites, the colors are brilliant, and best of all they are found all over the place in Portland.  So inspiring!

Green Thumb

Going green is a popular trend for weddings, the Pleated Collar Dress has been created in so many shades from mint to kelly.  Green is one of my personal favorite colors as it works so well with bouquet pairings.  Flowers are definitely high on my list of favorite things, if I wasn't a dress designer I would spend my days in a flower nursery!

Favorite Things: Jeffrey Campbell

I love JC shoes, especially the flats, so super comfortable.  I wore my last pair of JC flats until they wore out (literally had holes!).  I love the ruffled options available now, they have fun details like pearls, metallic stones and zippers to give that extra bit of edge.
