Hello Beauties! This week’s featured dress is from Kenneth Winston’s Femme Collection, a curvy collection from his luxury brand. Featuring a lot of lace and bead-work, Style 3383 is a unique mix of both.

Featured Dress Friday: Justin Alexander – Style #9894

Be You. That’s the new campaign slogan from popular bridal designer, Justin Alexander. Boasting for brides to embrace their curves and love their natural selves while they wear these beautiful designs is what makes this particular gown so special. I have to say Justin, I have NO problems being myself in this beauty! I love that the campaign focuses on the curvy bride and has a plethora of plus size wedding dresses to choose from. You should most definitely check out the hashtag #beyouxJustinAlexander because the other dresses modeled by curvy influencer and model Iskra, are to die for.

Back to this dress though…

First, let’s dive into the obvious: the bedazzled greatness. I am in love with the opulent detail the beads provide throughout the bodice, sleeves and skirt. I don’t know about you, but I would feel a new kind of regal walking down the aisle in this fit and flare wedding dress. As a plus size bride, I appreciate that the dresses in this campaign go from size 2-32 and have no up charge for plus sizing. Winning! Justin is known for the intricate design work and tight (and I do mean tight) fit of his dresses.However, this particular gown has a mix of Jersey knit and tulle fabric that helps it hug your curves in all the right places. She’s long sleeve and has an illusion back with a button up closure, so get your crochet hooks ready. As if the dress didn’t have enough drama, The plunging Sabrina neckline (a high collar neckline with a plunging v-neck in the middle) add the hint of sexy that balance out the long sleeved look.

Featured Dress Friday: Allure Bridal Style # W393

Happy Black Friday! I hope you all enjoyed your delicious dinner and time with friends and family! This week our Featured dress is in honor of the food baby I’m experiencing currently. She doesn’t have a name but a style number, W393, and is perfect for the bride who loves drama (in her clothing, not her life).

Allure Bridals did a great job with this ballgown silhouette. The beaded embroidery on the illusion bateau over a sweetheart neckline matches perfectly with the ruffled horse hair organza and satin floor length skirt. This dress is giving you romance, and fun all in one. Check out the dress here to find the store nearest to you that has it! If you end up trying it on, send photos and tell me how it feels, I’d love to hear from you! Stay Plush!

Feautred Dress Friday: Stella York – 6201

Ladies…LADIES. This dress almost brought a struggle tear to my eye. I say this because this dress is a dream come true. This week, in honor of my upcoming appointment with Wonderland Bridal, I am featuring this beauty from Stella York’s Everybody Everybride collection.

First, let’s dive into the beautiful Luxe satin finish throughout the entire gown. It looks like my favorite pajamas and probably feels like my favorite teddy bear. The ruched bodice with semi-sweetheart neckline hugs the curvy bride in all the right places without accentuating all the wrong ones.

But the best is yet to come….

The. dress. has. POCKETS!

Before the judgment begins, understand that any dress with pockets makes me giddy, but a Wedding Dress? GENIUS! I mean, think of all the options; I can keep my phone with me instead of depending on folks who then lose it during the day. Or, I can keep a snack in case I get a bit peckish. (yes, snacks…don’t act like you wouldn’t smuggle some goldfish crackers to tide you over.) Aside from all that, the design is flawless. These fabulous pockets are hidden effortlessly within the pleated skirt while the back of the dress has a traditional train and zipper covered by satin buttons.

All in all, this will be my FIRST request to try on at Wonderland…I absolutely cannot wait.

Featured Dress Friday – The Julietta Collection 3156

It’s Featured Dress Friday! This week I am drooling over this exquisite gown by Morilee Bridal’s Julietta Collection. This beauty is available in White and Ivory and has sizes 16W-32W.

This dress is for the princess inside all of us! The details are stunning with its crystal detail and the soft chantilly lace overlay. The waist is cinched perfectly to the side creating a curvy A-line shape for any body type. I’m fairly certain if I wore this dress I’d be making the same sultry face as the model but it probably wouldn’t look the same though. It has a corset back which is perfect for any bride avoiding the alteration prices, just make sure you have a friend who is patient and strong because you will need assistance on your big day.

Follow the below link to Morilee’s website To find it at a store near you. But hurry because this dress will be discontinued by December. If you end up trying it on, send me a photo and tell me about your experience! Stay plush!
