Well hello TWIST Dress!!!!

We know you have all been waiting for this….and the day has finally arrived!!
We finally received Dessy’s infamous TWIST dress!
Why is this dress so amazing, let me count the ways…….. 
 Who knew one little dress can be worn all those ways!! Amazing!! Each girl can basically pick what style they want to wear and literally in seconds wrap the dress however they choose!  The twist wrap dress comes in both cocktail length and floor length and can be ordered in 22 different beautiful colors!

So, if you are trying to fit all your beautiful ladies in different dresses, but want a cohesive look, then we might have just hit the jackpot with this one!  
If you are looking to save a few buck for your lovely ladies the twist will only set them back a mere $140.00 in cocktail length and $180 in floor length!
If you need help with how to wrap the dress watch what Dessy put together for you!!

Happy Twisting!!

Wear it again: Lynn Lugo Trunk Show!!

    I’ll admit it, Flair is getting a little tired of “Wear It Again: The Winter Edition”. When will it be warm already so we can re-wear some summery dresses?? Seems like a long time away but as you summer 2011 brides know, it will be here before you know it! 
This week we went with some classic accessories; a black cardigan, skinny belt and flats. It’s the perfect combo to ensure that you really will wear your bridesmaid’s dress again! This week, we wore Lynn Lugo’s Mimi dress, which is such a cute dress all on its own! For the bridesmaids’ look, we added a sash and an AB Ellie belt (the Brooklyn bridesmaids’ belt) as a hair piece (which could be a huge trend…remember where you saw it first!!). Then, paired with our accessories, it’s a no brainer outfit for a night out on the town!

If you take one thing away from our wear it again blogs each week, it should be this: a cardigan, belt and flats are the key for turning a bridesmaid’s dress to a ready to wear dress. It’s that simple! Now, let’s all cross our fingers for an early spring like the groundhog predicted!
Stay dry!

A brides most important accessory!!

Ok ladies, let’s be honest Carrie Bradshaw is the one who made them the must-haves, and we have been trying to live up to SJP’s infamous and fab role as the shoe-loving Carrie from Sex and The City ever since!

You know what I am talking about right???

She made Louboutin, Choo and Manolo household names!!
Well SJP’s style is certainly popping up all over the place in the wedding world. Brides are dying to mimic some of her most memorable to dye for shoes!!
Needless to say she is a style icon whose impact will be felt for many years to come, especially if you wear some SJP inspired heels on your “BIG” day!  
Lots of love to all of you and to our fav style icon SJP!!

Stuff We Love!!! Mani’s at Emerge Salon and Spa!!

Lucky us, we got to take a little field trip today courtesy of one of our amazing designers  cough, cough (Coren Moore) who nicely  presented the winners of a fall promo contest with a gift certificate to Emerge!!
We took this opportunity to get a little Manicure and relax for a whole 45 minute! The service at Emerge was AMAZING to say the least we felt very pampered!!  Emerge is the prefect place for a relaxing before the big day or a fun girls day in the city!

We decided to vary the colors for you ladies out there!!

If you get the chance you should check out EMERGE, it is quite the oasis in the middle of the city!!

Beverley Siri……Shares Her Favorites

I had an opportunity to chat with one of our favorite designers, Beverely Siri about her Spring 2011 Collection.
What’s behind the inspiration of your 2011 Collection?  Colors!  All of our new colors are rich, saturated and gorgeous!  Our styling is more fashionable, especially the ruched styles that are inspiring and offer bridesmaids something different. 
What’s your favorite dress from your collection?  I personally love the Napa Valley Sheath.  It is sheik, modern and can easily be worn to a cocktail party.  And what bridesmaid wouldn’t love to wear a normal bra?   You can easily do that in the Napa Valley Sheath.  I also adore our Lotus Dress.  It is very fresh, special and unique.
You said you loved your new colors, what’s your favorite?  All of our purples:  Iris, Passion and Amethyst.
We love showing your bridal gowns to our brides.  What makes them so special?  They are understated and flattering on every body type.  Our most popular gown, the Conservatory has the adorable sweetheart neckline with the trumpet skirt plus brides can add a pop of color.  There is a lot to our bridal look for the price!  Most of our gowns are under $1,000.
 Boston brides – make sure to try on Siri’s Lotus and Napa Valley Sheath this weekend during our Trunk Show.   You’ll receive an additional $15 off each dress.  Bridal gowns purchased during the trunk show gets a 10% discount.  
 Experience Siri’s commitment to brides:  Offering the best quality in a dress that is always fashionable and re-wearable!

Wear it again…..Coren Moore’s Lila, oh how we love you!!

We are not sure how Coren Moore keeps turning out these cute and preppy dresses but we are obsessed with it and so are our Flair brides and bridesmaids. 

Plus, this style is channeling a little “Mad Men” vibe and we love it.  We matched the dress with a cute Azalea sash to add a pop of color!

Now seriously how easy is this dress to re-wear, I mean come on it even has POCKETS!!! Joy paired the Lila with an adorable Navy blazer and some printed flats! So adorable! Come see the whole Coren Moore line at Flair. 

Our store is flocated at 10 Newbury Street on the 4th floor!  We are looking forward to working with you!!

Meet our FABULOUS new Intern Joy!!!

Hello Flair blog readers! 
    My name is Joy and I am Flair Bridal Boutique’s newest intern! I am a freshman at Fisher College in the back bay of Boston, and I am studying to get a bachelor’s degree in business management with a focus in fashion merchandising! 
    I chose to study fashion merchandising because I believe that it is a great way to be involved in fast moving business while still being able to apply the creative aspects of style. Being an intern at Flair is fantastic because not only is it exciting to help brides in planning their weddings, but I also learn something every time I step through the door. 
    The top three most valuable lessons that I have learned since starting my internship are that every bride or bridesmaid has a different style preference, you have to give every dress a chance because it always looks different on than on the rack, and most importantly you can’t give up when something is difficult. This last one is key considering I still can’t exactly master clipping a dress during a fitting. 
Hope to see everyone in the store soon!

It’s all about COLOR!!!

I think it was the boy scouts who said it best……
“Be prepared!”
      Such great advice, especially when shopping for all your fab and beautiful bridesmaids! You have about a million decisions to make before your BIG day and choosing the color of your bridesmaids dresses is really one of the biggest and most important. 

          Although I hate to refer to your lovely ladies as decoration, the truth is they are in a sense.  They will be the array of color surrounding you, and the color you choose is the catalyst for many other decisions (flowers, groomsmen’s attire, centerpiece colors) and will essentially set the tone for the wedding! Ouch, now that sounds like a HUGE decision.
Don’t fret we are here to help you!
      Make sure you come into Flair with ideas….whether that be magazine clippings, your favorite scarf, or paint chips. Anything helps!
So, don’t forget that boy scout motto “be prepared”!

We are looking forward to helping you choose the color and dress of you and your bridesmaids’ dreams!

Stacey 🙂
