The Met Gala!

We’ve been in a bit of a depression since red carpet season ended. Thank God E!’s Fashion Police is now on once a week though, which helps ease the pain a little. Then, along comes the Met Gala to really draw us out of our funk!  The Met Gala is great because it’s a little more “anything goes” than the award shows, with some gorgeous results and some disastrous.  A quick poll of the Flair girls’ favorites:

Lindsay: Christina Ricci in Thakoon

Stacey: Dianna Agron in Carolina Herrera

Joy: Diane Kruger in Prada

We have very different tastes, right? All the better to serve our brides of various tastes!

While drooling over the gorgeous (and some not so gorgeous) gowns, we noticed trends that carry over to some of our Flair gowns (you knew we’d tie this back to Flair somehow, right?).

1)      Deep V necks – This neckline is super flattering and elongating, perfect for girls looking to add a little length/height to their look (like our Glee girl Lea Michele, who wore a gorgeous navy DVF gown with a plunging V). See our Rita gown by Amy Kuschel for a stunning example of this look.

2)     Lace – Duh. Obviously lace is a huge trend in bridal, but we’re seeing it also become a trend on the red carpet. Some of the looks were a little more daring (see Rooney Mara in Givenchy) but still, there’s always something classic and romantic about lace. Coren Moore’s Reese gown is a great example; her lace is to die for!

3)     Peplum skirts: I must admit, I am a HUGE peplum fan! What girl doesn’t want a little extra material to cover her midsection, but in a cute way?! It’s genius! Solange Knowles (whose attire I am not usually a fan of) really did it right with her yellow peplum gown by Rachel Roy (plus yellow is a huge color this season). As for Flair, Coren Moore’s Lauren bridesmaid’s dress has an adorable, asymmetrical peplum skirt and Alfred Sung is also coming out with a peplum skirt (coming soon to Flair!).

So basically what we’re saying is that Flair is really on trend with what’s hot this season, like you didn’t already know that! So come see us soon and we’ll help all of you brides and maids look red carpet ready too!

XOXO

Heart Pounding Pastels!

The struggle of having to decide what to wear to a friend’s wedding, can be as difficult as deciding what to have your own bridesmaids wear on your big day. However, fashionistas like yourselves may take note that the Spring 2012 trend of pastels, lends itself to wedding fashion this current season. Hues such as pale pink, yellow, and blue took over the Spring 2012 runways, and have begun to trickle down into the  bridal scene. Although one might think that only Easter eggs should come in pastel, when done in the right manner the colors can look quite classy and feminine.

Designers such as Ralph Lauren and Diane Von Furstenberg sent their models down the catwalk in flowy pastel pieces, sometimes even throwing in a pastel colored floral print. Rodarte took the dominant trend to the extreme and closed their show with a series of floral pastel green, blue, and yellow printed dresses. This trend translates to the bridal industry in a major way, as it can easily be applied to dresses for spring and summer weddings. Our featured designers Anna Elyse and Coren Moore offer many of these trendy colors in much of their collections, which makes it easy for any bridesmaid or wedding-goer to be fashion forward! Worried that you or your bridesmaids won’t look good in pastels? Have no fear! Pastels truly go well with all skin tones, pale or dark and are not eccentric so that everyone can feel comfortable. The subdued feel of the tones also promise not to take away from other important details of a wedding, such as the color theme… or even the bride!

So now that we’ve sold you on either choosing pastel for your bridesmaids or for a dress for yourself, we would like to offer some suggestions that we have for you here at Flair! Anna Elyse offers gorgeous pastel colors in her Silk Chiffon and Sponged Silk Charmeuse Fabrics, which are both also fabulous lightweight fabrics for a spring/summer occasion.

Another designer who falls does a rendition of the trend is Coren Moore, who has great pastels in her silk shantung and silk chiffon fabrics. The designers offer many of their pieces in these fabrics, and they are sure to be perfect for spring.

We hope that if when it comes time to choose a dresses for your special occasion, you have difficult time during the Spring 2012 season, you will go with the trend of pastels. It is a simple, classy, yet fashion-forward way to show off your stylish side at the next wedding that you are in or attend. Who knows, maybe you will even be able to re-wear your pastel piece during this mad wedding season! You’re sure to be the most stylish group of bridesmaids or attendee at any wedding!

XOXO

Making and having a successful bridal/bridesmaid appointments!

Congratulations, your true love has finally popped the question and you said “YES”!  First things first, pick a date and a venue!! Now onto fashion…..what will you wear and what will you choose for your bridal party!

We realize this an extremely exciting time in your life and believe us we are so excited for you and cannot wait to hear about all of your plans and ideas! Here are a few helpful hints before you come in for an appointment to keep in mind!

1. Book your appointment at least 2 weeks in advance!

If you have friends flying in from far off lands, you usually know pretty far in advance……so, as soon as you know, call us!  617.247.2828 We hate turning you away when you have your close friends in town but we are a small store and we need more than 2 days’ notice to book you an appointment especially for a late night or weekend!

2. Come in with some sort of vision!!

Lucky for us, we live in a society that is overloaded with information….sometimes completely over the top at all times.  We have so many ways to find inspiration Pinterest, Bridal Magazines, Blogs, Facebook stalking(we know you do it!), and wedding planners! The problems arise when you come in and give your girls free reign of the entire store and don’t pick any kind of direction.  You are just setting yourself up for disaster and a very disappointing appointment.  Your friends do want to please you and help make your day as wonderful as possible so take this opportunity to at least give them a direction to go in!

3. Bring a select group of friends and family!

If you have been to Flair then you know that we are on the smaller side. If you haven’t, now you know!  We are a small store..…you are probably thinking what does that mean for me? Well, it means bringing the entire bridal party or every aunt and cousin you have doesn’t not really work here! Unfortunately we are a small store and we only have two fitting rooms. On Saturday’s we double book so your large groups will be limited to one fitting room.  So, our suggestion would be to pick your most trusted friends and family to come in and help you with your bridal gown or bridesmaid dress process.  You do want some people to be surprised when they show up at the wedding right?

4. If you made an appointment, keep your appointment or cancel it!

So, you called ahead of time to make a special appointment to come in and look at bridal gowns or bridesmaid dresses! Congrats you were able to schedule the best possible time for you and your friends and your special appointment time rolls around……..and we are patiently waiting for you to arrive to show you all the beautiful gowns/dresses we have when……..we realize you are not coming.

Although I would like to say this happens hardly ever, that is not the case.  Not only does this hurt us as a small business, it hurts our other customers that are on our waitlist hoping for a time to be able to get in and check out bridal gown or bridesmaid dresses with friends and family.  So, if you can’t make it that is fine, just let us know so that we can fill in your time slot with the girls who can make it and are calling us non-stop to see if someone has cancelled.

So, now that you have all our pointers make plans with your girls, call early and get in here!! We are dying to hear about your wedding!!

 

XOXO

Get inspired by “Pinterest”

There are many reasons why I am jealous of 2012 brides. As many of you fellow 2011 brides can probably attest, the year after you get married is super fun and all buuuuuuut also filled with some wedding withdrawals. Planning the wedding takes up so much of your time and energy and then afterwards you’re left trying to figure out what to do with all of that extra time. Well, one of the things that I’ve been doing to fill my time is going on Pinterest….constantly. As my husband eloquently put it “you’re on that website a lot.” Yes honey, I am. I am designing our future home, dressing our future kids and planning interesting meals to cook for you, so I’ve kinda got my hands full here.

Sorry, I got a little off topic there. Circling back around, Pinterest is another reason why I am jealous of 2012 brides. It is literally the best way to organize all of your fab wedding ideas. See a flower bouquet online that you like? Pin it! Then, bring any device with internet access to your meeting with your florist and BOOM they can see it quickly and easily. It is crazy that only one short year ago I was bringing torn out magazine photos to my meetings. Ugh, that’s so 2011.

So, check out Flair on Pinterest to steal some of our amazing ideas and get yourself started. Like me, I’m sure you’ll be neglecting your fiancé/husband in no time (sorry hubby, but really I’m doing it for our future)!

 

 

Happy Pinning!

XOXO

Spotlight on Katie’s Perfect Pink Wedding!

We are on a roll with some seriously gorgeous weddings!!  We are so lucky to be a part of so many wonderful bride’s weddings, and Katie is no exception.  Every time she graced us with her presence at Flair we all left with a smile on our face!! She is warm, sweet and extremely kind!  Her wedding was infused with pink and complimented her venue in the Adirondacks Mountains. Enjoy her perfectly pink wedding.

What was your inspiration for your wedding?

The color pink and the Adirondacks!


How did you tie that inspiration in to what you choose for your bridesmaid dresses/bridal gown?

Our bridesmaids wore Coren Moore silk shantung azalea (light pink) dresses, I wore an azalea Coren Moore bridal sash for the reception and the groom and groomsmen wore pink Vineyard Vines ties.  The Coren Moore dresses and my gown were a perfect fit for a day wedding in the Adirondack Mountains.


What were you looking for in your bridesmaid dresses?

I wanted our bridesmaids to look and feel great in their dresses!  Two of our bridesmaids helped me select a handful of different styles from Coren Moore’s bridesmaid collection for each of them to choose from.  Though I did not let our bridesmiads decide on the color of their dresses, I wanted them to be able to pick a style of dress that they felt great in.  When you look and feel good in what you are wearing the day is always more fun!


How was Stacey/Lindsay/Brooke most helpful?

Stacey, Lindsay and Brooke were all very helpful!  Brooke helped me each time I visited Flair, she had wonderful suggestions and ideas for outfitting our bridal party.  All three girls assisted with placing orders and notifying me when anything arrived at the store.  Everyone at Flair was incredibly friendly, accommodating and responsive.

What did you choose for your bridal gown?

Coren Moore’s Chloe Gown in ivory silk shantung.  I wore an ivory bridal sash and my mother’s veil for the ceremony and an azalea bridal sash for the reception.

How was your experience at Flair?

Fantastic!  I highly recommend Flair to any bride for both her bridal gown and bridesmaid dresses.

Where did you get married?

We were married at Sacred Heart Church in Lake George, NY.  Our Reception was at The Sagamore Resort on Lake George in Bolton Landing, NY.

What was your favorite part of the Wedding?

All of it!

Where did you go on your honeymoon?

For our honeymoon we vacationed at the Four Seasons Resort Lana’i at Manele Bay.  We highly recommend this location to any couples looking to honeymoon in Hawaii, it was so much fun!

New York Bridal Market at a Glance

Saturday October 15th – Day 1

9:30 AM – Lindsay and Stacey board the Amtrak to NYC! A few episodes of Glee on our computers and we’re there!

1:30 PM – Struggle to catch a cab at Penn Station and Lindsay’s watch goes missing…not a good start…

2:00 – We check into the fabulous Omni Berkshire Hotel in Midtown, thanks to our friends at the Omni in Boston. Seriously, if there is an Omni wherever you are traveling, STAY THERE! They are all so classy and gorgeous, we were in heaven!

3:00 – Explore Midtown a little…we search for a Starbucks that the concierge told us was a block away, but never find it (more on that later) and end up getting sandwiches nearby.

4:00 – Make ourselves pretty and presentable (takes longer than you’d think).

4:30 – Wind ruins our hair as we wait for a cab outside of the hotel…Stacey and Lindsay are NOT happy.

5:00 – Check into Pier 94 (where bridal market is held) and have our first meeting with Anna Elyse, yay! We don’t want to give too much away but let’s just say we are SO excited about her new bridal line. We absolutely fell in love with one gown with a textured skirt…stay tuned! She is expanding and growing her bridesmaids’ line as well and added two new fabrics, chiffon and charmuese. Go Annie!

6:30 – Lindsay and Stacey struggle to figure out where to go to dinner. They end up at the hotel restaurant (Fireside) like major losers.  The salad in the parmesan bowl was fab though!

7:30 – Conference call with Flair’s owner Christine to discuss what we’ve seen so far. We are so excited already!

8:30 – Asleep…not kidding. The beds at the Omni were too amazing to resist for too long and poor Stacey is under the weather. Such a trooper!

Sunday October 16th – Day 2

6:00 AM – Time to wake up and get ready! We are sure to use ample Rave hairspray to avoid yesterday’s windy fiasco. P.S. Stacey confirms that the Omni has the best hotel shower EVER. Bonus!

7:30 – We’re out the door and immediately go looking for Starbucks…which we again did not find. Eventually we stumbled across one several blocks away (with the help of our smart phones – seriously, what did we do before those things?!). A fabulous man in a morning coat compliments Lindsay’s trench and sunglasses (the glasses are forever 21, he thought Tom Ford). Her day is made. Then, a turn for the worse: our lovely cab driver starts to drive away with Stacey still half way out the door. She swung her way in though, crisis averted.

9:00 – Appointment to see a potential new bridal designer, Junko Yoshioka. Such nice guys and gorgeous dresses! We have the best job ever!

10:00 – Time to meet with the Jenny Yoo ladies! We love them! Let us start by saying that Jenny has such a good idea for a bridesmaid’s dress that she is in the process of patenting it. Yes, you heard us, a patent. Can’t wait to show you ladies when the samples come in!

11:00 – Meeting with Coren Moore and her team. They are THE sweetest ever and we love hanging out with them, and of course seeing their new styles! We love their new chiffon pieces, which we’ll have in the store in the coming WEEKS! Eeek, so excited!! Plus, later in the season we’ll have a gorgeous bridesmaid’s dress with a ruffle detail and you know how we love us a ruffle!

12:00 PM – Quick trip to see our accessories designer, A.B. Ellie. Ashley is a true genius when it comes to bridal and bridesmaids’ belts. They really add SO much detail to our dresses. We added a few new pieces for the store and we know our girls are going to L-O-V-E them! Plus, we love seeing Ashley and her sister, they are so down to earth and fabulous!

12:30 – Off to Nicole Miller! Her dresses are so much fun, we love seeing them on the gorgeous models. Plus, she has A-MAZING party dresses that are really well priced!

1:30 – MUCH needed lunch break! Stacey and Lindsay wander the waterfront area for awhile and stumble upon a cute little pub. Slow service but great food, just the pick me up we needed!

3:00 – Lynn Lugo time! We are SOSO excited about Lynn’s new styles! In particular, there are three new tops with ruffle details that we fell in LOVE with. They are super cute and wearable, trust us! Plus, she came out with some great soft colors that we think will be very popular this year. Lynn and her husband Pete are the cutest couple ever, so we just love to chat and catch up with them. Plus, they gave us these amazing cups with her logo on them which we now use every day!

4:00 – Definitely time to grab a coffee in the buyer’s lounge area. We are starting to fade!

4:30 – Quick stop at Dessy. Theirs is always an easy one, we know we’re getting everything! We figured out what colors we wanted and were on our way!

5:00 – Our last meeting of the day is with 57 Grand. We love these ladies, definitely be on the lookout for them. They get the best magazine exposure ever and landed another Martha Stewart editorial just recently! They have a super cool bridal style with a removeable tulle skirt, so cool!

6:00 – Headed back to the Omni!

6:30 – Hour and a half conference call with Christine, we have SO much to discuss!

8:00 – Stacey and Lindsay get brave and venture out for dinner! Watch out NYC here we come! We went to this adorable Italian restaurant with THE fastest service ever. The entrees were there literally 2 minutes after we ordered, crazy! Plus, our waiter had a crush on us and gave us a glass of wine on the house. Not gonna lie, we needed it!

9:00 – Back to the Omni, we laugh and watch The Proposal and fall asleep by 11:00 (such rebels after last night).

Monday October 17th – Day 3

6:30 AM – Wake up time! We were ready super early yesterday so we slept a little later.

7:45 – Out the door, we try yet again to find the “close” Starbucks but again end up at the farther one we went to yesterday. Whatever, we’d travel miles and miles for the bucks.

9:00 – Meeting another new designer, Amy Kuschel. She is THE perfect fit for Flair! Her bridal gowns are definitely going to be a step up for us and we KNOW our girls are going to love them! Plus, former Flair girl Leah works with them at her new bridal boutique so we got to catch up with her there. We miss her! Ladies, you are going to DIE over these dresses, we are counting down the days until we can start showing them to you!!

10:00 – Travel to the Intercontinental Hotel where Siri is showing. She got the presidential suite there, go Siri!!

11:00 – Meeting with Siri. She has an absolutely adorable rouched sweetheart style that we know will KILL at Flair.

12:00 PM – Last stop of the trip, Badgley Mischka in Times Square! No new styles but it was still so nice to see their showroom, it’s gorgeous!

12:30 – Quick change into scrubby, train clothes in the Omni bathroom. We ask the concierge yet again where the closer Starbucks is…and still don’t find it. We are convinced it doesn’t exist.

1:00 – Quick lunch in Midtown. We get to eat outside because it is so gorgeous out!

2:00 – Amtrak home! A man and woman behind us refuse to stop talking even though the train is supposed to be quiet. We give a few mean glances, to no avail. On the brighter side, Stacey meets a new man (in the form of an adorable 7 month old baby, who was a major flirt).

Tuesday October 18th – Back to Flair!!! We only wish we had all of those new styles with us, but we should have a lot of them soon after the new year! Stay tuned brides and maids!

 

We had the best time at Bridal Market this year and we are so excited to share all the new gems!

Here’s to a happy, successful, beautifully dressed and healthy 2012!

XOXO

Lindsay & Stacey

 

 

Fall Favorites

It’s no secret that we New Englanders love autumn. With the crisp air, sweaters and those changing leaves that draw gawkers from miles away, it truly is a magical time of year. Here are a few other reasons we love Fall…

1)      Apple picking: Seriously, who doesn’t love a fun day out at an orchard picking apples right off of the tree? Fact: they always taste like 10 times better than the apples you get at the grocery store. Plus, you just feel productive, going out and foraging for your own food and what not. I felt inspired afterwards to continue the productiveness and cook, making applesauce from scratch. Watch out Martha Stewart. Looking for a fab orchard (and who isn’t?)? Try Belkin Lookout Farm in Natick. They have TONS of fresh fruit, as well as a petting zoo. I mean really, there’s something for everyone.

2)      New fall TV: We admit it, we’re kind of TV junkies at Flair. So, Fall always brings a sense of excitement as new shows come out and old favorites pick up from the annoying cliffhangers they left us off at. We highly recommend checking out “The New Girl” on Fox. It is simply adorkable, Zooey Deschanel is a comedy queen. Also, “Up All Night” on NBC is good for laughs, even though we’re not on the baby track just yet.

Hurry up and snatch up these soon to be discontinued styles from Jenny Yoo!

3)      Fall sales at Flair!!: Did you really think we wouldn’t bring this back to Flair somehow? Seriously though, our designers are feeling super generous in the fall and most are offering really great deals just to order your dresses before the crazy winter bridal season begins. So why not check the bridesmaids’ dresses off of your to-do list nice and early AND save some money at the same time! Check out the 411 on the remaining sales below and call us to set up an appointment ASAP!

Coren Moore: 15% off of all bridesmaids’ orders placed by October 31st PLUS one free sash per dress!

Lynn Lugo: $20 off of all dresses (on top of group discount) ordered by November 30th!

Jenny Yoo: Bump it up Promo add and extra 5% off your bridesmaid orders! Catch those styles before they get discontinued.

Siri: Extra $20 (on top of group discount) off all orders of 2 or more bridesmaids’ dresses by November 30th!

Happy Fall 😉

Spotlight on Devon’s Joyous & Bright Wedding!

There is nothing we enjoy more than hearing from our brides after their weddings. We truly love working with all of you and are so happy to see and hear how your big days went! Plus, the photos are always gorgeous eye candy, and today is no exception! Today’s bride spotlight is on Devon, a super sweet Flair bride.  Devon earned an A+ from Flair for being an uber prepared bride (ahem, future Flair brides take note). She contacted us in advance of her appointment and gave us a really good idea of what she was looking for. She even had a list of favorites from our designer’s websites, which is a huge help. Basically, Devon wanted something a little unique and something that her girls could wear again, and I think we hit the nail on the head! Check out her helpful comments below and as well as some absolutely stunning photos from her July wedding. Thanks and congrats Devon, you were an absolute joy to work with and we hope to see you and your girls again in the future!

What was the inspiration for your wedding?

We wanted our wedding to be JOYFUL. To us, joy is being surrounded by the people we love most, who come from many parts of our lives. We chose an intimate Vermont Inn for our wedding site because this setting allowed us all to spend the weekend together in one place.  We had the Inn entirely to ourselves and filled every room!  Joy for us is also fun and games. We had a wiffle ball tournament, a road race, and all sorts of yard games. We love these activities, and they also provided a fun way for people to get to know each other over the course of the weekend.  When I see bright colors, I immediately feel a sense of increased happiness and cheer. For our wedding colors, the inspiration came for a brightly colored scarf that my mom always wore on special occasions when we were growing up. This scarf has white background covered in large, vibrant hot pink, orange, red, yellow, and purple flowers with Kelly green leaves, and I carried it with me throughout the wedding planning process to make sure the colors I was choosing met my criteria for “joyful.”

What were you looking for in a bridesmaid dress?

I wanted a dress that the girls could wear again and that was not the classic cookie-cutter bridesmaid dress. So many dresses all looked “the same” and I wanted the girls to have something unique. Additionally, it was very important to me to find a dress that the girls actually liked, that flattered everyone, and that they would be comfortable dancing in.

What dress did you choose? What color?

Siri Bali dress in popsicle!

How was Lindsay most helpful?

So many ways…where to start? Lindsay was super organized! She knew her stuff, and went out of her way to be sure that our experience at Flair was highly personal. I traveled from Burlington, VT to visit Flair and before my trip, Lindsay had been really clear with me about what styles they had in stock by what designers and in what colors so that my trip was worthwhile. Beyond that, we ended up choosing a dress that was not even on my list to look at, so although all her legwork was “for nothing,” she was still SUPER accommodating, patient, and friendly! Furthermore, when scheduling prevented us from all coming to one appointment, Lindsay finagled the schedule so that I was able to have three appointments within 2 hours to get all of the girls in to try things on.

Any tips for brides when selecting their BM dresses?  Bridal Gowns?

DO get started early. Feeling rushed is no fun! Also, for all the online scoping out of dresses that I did, you never know until you actually get yourself or your girls into a dress. The logistics of getting people to try things on can be nightmarish, but it’s worth it!

How was your experience at Flair?

Fabulous!

Where did you get married?

Quechee Inn at Marshland Farm, Quechee, VT

What three adjectives would best describe your wedding?

JOYOUS, BRIGHT, Relaxed

What was your favorite moment at the wedding?

Listening to my husband read his vows to me!

Where did you go on your honeymoon?

Quebec City, Quebec

What advice can you give any other Boston/New England Bride?

When deciding whom you would like to be a bridesmaid, ask yourself, “Which of the wonderful women in my life will be able to support me best on my wedding day?” I could not have asked for more loving, helpful, and fun bridesmaids! They bent over backwards to make the whole build up to our big day special—throwing showers and bachelorette events that were tailored just for me, and remaining unbelievably patient as I sent them thousands of neurotic emails telling them things that they could not possibly have cared about. Furthermore, on my big day they made things that could have been stressful into hilarious jokes. For example, the lovely buttons on the back of my dress were absolutely impossible to fasten and we were running rather late. Instead of stressing out, my girls started doing some cheers while my sister fought with the buttonholes. Every other day of your life is a good time to be in a balanced, give-and-take reciprocal relationship with the women you love, but onyour wedding day, it is all about you. Friends and family who understand and embrace this make the day that much more magical.
