Mis-Matched Bridesmaids Dresses!

While we consider ourselves to be pretty fearless most of the time, lately alot of our brides have been saying something to us that truly makes us shudder: “I really like the look of Molly Sims’ bridal party.” <Cue classic horror movie music> Gasp!

If you haven’t seen her bridal party, do a quick Google search. Find it? OK good. It really is gorgeous, and we love to see someone doing something a little different BUT we’ve had a hard time recreating that look for our brides…until now!

Jenny Yoo came out with her first “social collection” this season, which includes pretty prints, luxurious laces and preppy polka dots. They pair perfectly with our already fabulous collection of solid dresses, to help you achieve that effortless mix and match look that so many brides are going for these days. Check out these fab photos from her recent shoot to get a sneak peek and if you like what you see (and we think you will) give us a call to come see it in person!

Bridal Shower Themes!

There are many different ideas for a bridal shower. It depends on your season, wedding day theme, who is coming, how intimate, and many other factors. But the biggest factor is what YOU want. We are going to take a closer look into what it will take to create these different afternoon (or morning) escapes.

Kitchen Theme—A kitchen theme bridal shower usually involves kitchen gifts and activities. Guests are usually asked to bring a favorite or family recipe so the bride can get a jump-start on their recipe collection. There may even be a little bit of baking involved or a “create-your-own” fruit bar. As long as food is involved it will be fun!

High Tea—This bridal shower is all things tea related! Play fun games, get the girls together, and eat tiny sandwiches! If you are a little confused and new to the “tea-party” theme a great place to start is Teavana they are very informative and will be able to direct you to find a good arrange of teas that will go perfectly with your party. Also don’t forget the option of coffee!

Brunch—For those morning people, you can always start the day off right with a brunch theme. Mimosas, a “do-it-your-own” fruit, granola, and yogurt bar, and pastry spread will certainly be the key to a classy and fun event. Besides…it is the most important meal of the day. Jazz Brunch at The Beehive is a quirky and fun place to plan a rocking shower!

Wine & Cheese—Wine & Cheese parties are very fun. It is a great way to get all your fiends together and try different wines. Either have guests bring a bottle of their favorite or create the selection yourself! Baccos in Boston is a great place to start to learn about all the great wine and cheese pairings!

Spa—In the middle of planning a wedding the bride needs a spa day. Many salons have packages and can accommodate a bridal shower for the bride and some of her close friends. A cheaper alternative option will also be make a spa day at home. Set up different stations and try “at-home” remedies for beauty products. Great gift ideas that go along with this theme are bath products, towels, and more bath supplies.  Spa’s we love in Boston Exhale & Emerge perfect for any spa day with the girls!

 

Take this day as a way to enjoy the company with friends and treat yourself before the big day! Enjoy!

 Now go plan that bridal shower!!

Grammy Red Carpet Fashion!

As we settle into our “new digs” we wanted to take the time to look at the 2013 Grammy Red Carpet from this past weekend. It is our favorite time of year…..award season and that means one thing: dresses! The red carpet is one of the most exciting times of the night! We wanted to give our humble opinions to which dresses we thought were just fabulous.

These are our top 5! Enjoy!

Lastly, we had to give Carrie Underwood a second nod for her stunningly beautiful performance gown that was custom made by Theia’s own Don O’Neill!  Such a show stopper!

These ladies looked  beautiful at the Grammy’s….but what we want to know is who was your favorite on the Grammy Night?

Moving on up!

Not to toot our own horn, but we love the vibe we’ve created at Flair. We want our customers to feel like they’re walking into their friend’s home when they come to see us, or better yet like they’re walking into their friend’s fabulous closet! We strive to be comfortable and warm, yet a little chic at the same time. We’ll be the first to admit though….Flair’s a little small. If you’ve been here you know; we are busting out of this place!

So, we started the search about 2 years ago for a new space. Yes, you read that correctly, 2 years ago. Why the lengthy process? There’s no lack of spaces for rent on Newbury Street, but we were absolutely not willing to settle on the look and feel of our new space. Some spaces were huge and gorgeous, but a little too industrial/cold feeling for us. Others were warmer but didn’t have the big, open feel we like. Yes, we were very picky; realtors hated us. We love our clients though, so we wanted nothing but 100% perfection for them. Finally, after years of searching, we found it; the PERFECT space. It’s bigger (yay!), but not so big that it loses that homey feeling. The builder also really thought about making the space aesthetically pleasing. The wood work is stunning and rich looking, and the floors absolutely gleam. Can you tell that we’re obsessed?! We don’t want to give too much away now, but keep an eye peeled for photos when we’re all done setting up. We are beyond thrilled to share our wonderful new home with you soon!

Cheers to a beautiful 2013 together!

Important Note (this means you!):

Our last day at 10 Newbury will be Saturday 1/19. After that, we will be closed for a few days for the move and then will be back open for business on Thursday 1/24. Our new address is 140 Newbury Street, Suite 202 (Second floor) so all appointments starting on 1/24 and beyond will need to go there.

Thanks and see you soon!!

 

Featured in Boston Weddings Magazine!

We feel so lucky and privledged to be able to be a part of Boston Weddings Magaine’s “Ask the Experts” in the latest issue of Boston Weddings!  We also feel lucky to be featured next to our very fav vendor friends Tom + Melissa Dowler of Long Haul Films.

In the article, Stacey gives invaluable advice to the many brides that the magazine reaches. She touches on everything from upcoming trends to how to prepare for your appointment with us (for example, it’s not really necessary to being 10 people with you to your appointment….just sayin’). She provides a truly great overview of where bridal gowns and bridesmaids’ dresses are at these days (we’ve come a long way baby!) and even shares some personal stories from her own wedding planning experience.

It truly is a must read for all brides out there, so be sure to pick up a copy while they last!

Make sure you also check out Leah Haydock’s featured photo in the mag and our brand new ad!! Thanks so much Leah!

XOXO

Jenny Yoo 2013 Preview!

Oh weekends, how I love you! Any day that allows me to sleep late and then go to brunch – a mid-day meal where champagne is encouraged – is fine by me. At Flair though, we give up one or sometimes both of our weekend days to be at the store and meet with our fabulous brides. It seems like a sacrifice but we truly love doing it! We especially love being here when we’re having a trunk show; it’s the perfect way to showcase one of our amazing designers! This past weekend we’re DOUBLY excited though, because our Jenny Yoo trunk show is also a preview of her new 2013 collection!

When we received the box of dresses from Jenny Yoo, it truly felt like Christmas morning! We were so excited to tear the box open and get a look at those new beauties. What makes us most excited though is seeing how far bridesmaids’ dresses have come. I think it may take a little longer for them to completely eclipse the bad rap bridesmaids’ dresses have gotten over the years, but really there’s no comparison between the dresses of today to those of years past. We’re so proud of our designers, each year they grow and change with the times but still stay true to their personal vision/aesthetic. It’s not an easy task, but they do it with ease!

To quickly sum up what we’re seeing for 2013: Patterned fabrics and lace and shorter hems, oh my! Basically, we’re getting an answer to the age old “I don’t want my bridesmaids’ dresses to look like bridesmaids’ dresses” dilemma. You can come to a bridal shop and get our expert service and advice (yes, tooting our own horn) and walk away with really unique and special dresses. Heaven!

We can’t wait to show you all of the new goodies as they roll in over the next few months; 2013 is shaping up to be the best year yet!

XOXO

Hope Doll Dress

If you follow our facebook page or have been on our website recently, you will have seen that we recently launched a dress for dolls.  This is not just any dress for a doll, though, because it benefits a cause very near and dear to Coren’s and all of our hearts.  Below is the story behind it all as told by Coren.

Flower girls have always been a favorite part of the wedding party. Watching my 3 daughters and their friends play with their American Girl dolls inspired me to create flower girl dresses to fit the dolls. But the meaning goes beyond that.

In 2010, my youngest daughter was diagnosed with pediatric cancer. There are not enough words to explain how scary this experience was.
Not a day goes by that we do not feel thankful that we are through treatment, and at the same time desperate to do something more.

Although this is a small effort, it’s a start – we are donating 100% of profits from the sale of the HOPE dress to pediatric cancer charities, including Solving Kids Cancer. Our goal is to donate at least $10,000 by the end of 2013. Other charities will be added, we are open to suggestions!
We cannot thank you enough for your support.

The HOPE dress is an exact replica of our flower girl dress, designed to fit 18” dolls. The dress comes in Ivory Silk Shantung, Spruce Velvet or Spruce Shantung. Sashes are available in any of our colors, including a beautiful red holiday plaid. Ribbon can be sewn in stripes on the skirt, to match the Abby Flower Girl dress. It’s a special present that your flower girl or any little girl will adore!
