A Wedding Affair

We're very excited to be a part of The Wedding Affair"The Vermont Wedding Affair is dedicated to catering to local & destination couples that want to experience the BEST Vermont has to offer. From planning seminars & decor workshops to makeovers & manicures, The Vermont Wedding Affair will introduce you to the products, people & places that create Vermont’s most talked about events."  Although Sweet Lady Jane is not known for it's bridal dress selection, we do have great pieces for engagement parties, rehearsal dinners and honeymoon trips.  
 This is one of the looks that we'll be showing from Corey Lynn Calter.  
We'll probably use the Biata dress too - it will look great on Lola.  
We also managed to score some holiday samples from French Connection.  Mica is going to look killer in this piece.   
Cynthea's Spa is doing the makeup and Salon Cruz will be creating the hair.  Cynthea said that this Burberry campaign, will be her inspirationLove it.

French Connection Show 2011

We went with two looks for each model.  This is Kelly in her daytime/causal look.  She's wearing a featherweight flannel jumpsuit, thin double leather belt and our new twill parka.  It's a great jacket - you can cinch the waist, tailor the fullness of the hem and even take out the inner liner, for those warmer fall days.
Here is Kat in the Jackson leather biker jacket and the ribbons knit off the shoulder dress.
The necklace is from trinket - designed by Molly M.  
Julia is wearing the petra puffa vest and the streaky stripe top, a personal favorite.
Mica is wearing the twinkle knit jumper, which turned out to be the nights most coveted item, and an amazing David Aubrey necklace.  
Lola rocked a long knit sweater dress, the purple suede belt, a chunky snood.  The puffa coat in her hand is amazing.  It has a high collar that snuggles right up to your face.  Perfect on a blustery day.  
Now on to the evening portion...

Kelly looked fabulous in the ella draped maxi dress.  
Kat was killer in the drape delight dream dress.  
I loved Julia in the pen dragon beading dress.  This dress was the inspiration for the head pieces and the amazing make-up by Kirstin.  The beading on this piece is to die for.
The tie on Mica's head piece broke right before she walked - she had to improvise.  She's wearing another amazing beaded dress, the winter bex beads sleeveless dress.  This dress is so on trend with what the runways were showing for spring 2012.  Mica also has on the most supple leather jacket.  I love the drawstring waist.
This look was a show stopper - Lola is wearing the starstruck asymmetric dress and the skating Kate faux-fur jacket.  Gorgeous.
A big thank you to our lovely models - Julia, Kat, Lola, Kelly and Mica! You rocked the runway!
A big thank you to Brett Lupfer for taking the stellar photographs, thank you to the lovely Miss Kirstin for her talented make-up skills and a big thank you to Lauren from French Connection, for making this event even possible.  
p.s. I'm wearing the starstruck scoop dress and Lauren is in the camilla stretch dress

Tomorrow is the third annual French Connection fashion show!  We've been busy trying to put together our looks - a daytime casual and a night out on the town outfit.  We're loving the faux fur jacket over the crystal crusted, one shoulder dress for your holiday event.
