Off-beat dresses for our Non-traditional brides!

Nowadays it seems that no bride wants to be like another. This is starting to revolutionize the wedding industry, especially wedding attire! The most recent trends are jumpsuits and crop-top two pieces. Now, we haven’t gone as far as to stock up on white jumpsuits just yet but we do have quite a few non-traditional, “offbeat” wedding gowns!

One of our favorite and very fashion-forward gowns is this stunning Tadashi. What makes this dress even better is that at our boutique you can have her for only $395! Click the photo to go directly to our website!

Another great one is this Nicole Miller peplum dress. This is perfect as it is such a classic shape and will be easy to move in no matter where you are saying “I do!” Check out more of her details at www.ledressboutique.com

How to: Picking the perfect gown for a Military Ball

We have had so many women come to our boutique lately looking for a gown to wear to a Military Ball. This can be a very exciting time, but for most us…prom or college formals were the last time we needed a fancy gown! Because of this many women still gravitate towards sexy, sparkly dresses which is NOT okay for a Military Ball. We have just a few pointers for you when picking out your dress:

  • Stick with SUBTLE sexy! It is important for you to feel beautiful and confident, but keep it classy. For example, instead of that gown with the open, extremely low back, go with a halter that shows off a little back and some shoulder! See this Jovani below, and more of our inventory at www.LeDressBoutique.com!
     

– Next, try a current trend! Lace is extremely popular now and can look SO classy!

This Betsy and Adam gown has a FABULOUS shape that will hug you in all the right places. This dress really does a great job of using shape (Not skin!) to exude sexy, staying current with lace, and creating a stunning neckline with the deep v-neck. See her and her details at www.LeDressBoutique.com!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

-Stay away from metallics, electrics, and other bright colors! The ideal colors for a Military Ball gown are gold, red, navy, and black!

5 Tips for Homecoming Court Dresses…

Jovani at Le Dress Boutique, Luxe Consignment in Atlanta

Jovani at Le Dress Boutique, Luxe Consignment in Atlanta

Congrats – you made Homecoming Court!  Now you need a fabulous dress…. Here are 5 tips for what to wear if you are homecoming court:

  1. Pick a color that POPS… everyone will be looking at your from far away, so you want to have “Field  Presence.”
  2. Long gowns are the call of the day at most schools – but don’t make it too sexy.  This isn’t prom, nor a Hollywood premier.
  3. Some sparkle is good – but again, this is not Prom.   Strike a balance between elegant and sparklelicious.
  4. Don’t break the bank!  You probably only wear this dress for 2 hours.  Shop consignment shops or borrow from a friends.
  5. A big smile, and shoes you can walk in, are the BEST Accessories for Homecoming court.

For more versatility, wear this great Angela & Alison Dress LONG for #Homecoming Court, then shirt for the dance!  This dress retails for $ 362, but on consignment (never worn) she is only $185!

This Angela & Alison has a detachable over-skirt!

Find the right dress for your body type at Le Dress Boutique!

image

Alright ladies! Last week we found you the perfect dress for your venue, now we need to make sure it is the right style dress for your body! We are all so very different, so sometimes it is hard to find a dress that really highlights your best assets…and we get that! However! Here at Le Dress we have SO many different styles and designers you will surely find your perfect fit! In today’s blog we have narrowed down body types into four fairly common shapes and given you an example of what kind of dress will be best for your shape.

All of the dresses featured in today’s blog can be found in our boutique or online at www.LeDressBoutique.com! Click each picture to go straight to our website!

If you have an apple shape:

This San Patrick “Harriott” gown would be perfect! The satin waist is slightly dropped and cinched in to create the hour glass shape. The skirt will add a fullness to the bottom that will create a nice silhouette. (Dropped waist warning: if you are short, go for a higher waist line with ruching or some sort of definition around your middle, and a fuller bottom to create a waistline.)

If you have an hourglass shape:

You are one of the lucky ones because most things will look good on you! Mermaid, dropped waist, and a-line cuts are all great suggestions but one that we really love, and recommend is this Lillian West 6319 fit to flare gown. It is made from natural silk and has a lace yoke sleeve with button detail down the back. This gown retails for 1145, but Le Dress has it for just $820!

For you ladies with a Pear shape:

A-line is always a good go to for this body type, but you have to be sure not to make the bust area look smaller than it is! A great way to avoid this problem is to find a gown that is A-line, but has some detail (like ruching)  along the bust to add volume! This Paloma Blanca is a great example of this. This dress is priced at only $695 at Le Dress Boutique!

Lastly, the rectangle:

You lovely ladies probably have broad shoulders, and a pretty straight torso. Often times women with broad shoulders try to hide them with lace and sleeves when in reality you should show them off! If you choose a halter, one shoulder, or strapless gown with a fuller bottom your body will look more proportionate and “hourglass-esque.” The dress we have chosen for you is the Amsale Newport gown made of silk faille. Having this one strap will not only make you feel more comfortable and confident but it will also highlight your gorgeous shoulders. The waist is already going to create some shape for you, but if you want a bit more try adding a nice sash for great definition!
