Maid of Honor

I let my sister pick out her Maid of Honor dress and it is absolutely fabulous. I’m a bit jealous, I kinda want to wear it! It’s the Diane von Furstenberg that Leanne created on the Project Runway challenge!


Such a pretty purple. It goes so well with the varying shades of purple and pink that we are incorporating. I just adore the ruffles in the back as well. She is going to look spectacular! My mom is also wearing purple, adore that everyone is going to be color coordinated.

Here are some other delish purple numbers from DVF.

Sigh. I adore Diane Von Furstenberg. Everything in her collection is always so pretty.

Random story, I met Diane when she came for an appearance at Nordstrom a few years ago. I was standing there with one of my girlfriends feeling a bit shy, when she walked up to us and said “Hello, I’m Diane.” and shook our hands. I was beyond ecstatic. She was so gorgeous and so lovely in person. And yes, I am a nerd and got her autograph. It is one of my prized possessions!

The Project Runway dress is available here.

    that’s so exciting!!! The dress looked blue on the show but is so much better in purple. Honestly, besides some of Korto’s creations, this was the best or the best!! I CANNOT wait to see it on and in your wedding photos!
