TruLu Couture Featured WHERE?

Holy amazeballs, y’all. Hell hath frozen over.

SMP Link

You know my girl Hillary, right? I posted her engagement shoot here. I posted her boudoir shoot here. I talked about the accessories I made her here. You can also read how I met her, when I was an extra as a part of her What Not to Wear ambush. She’s also a kick ass Nashville florist, owner of  Brocade Design Arts. You’d think we were in cahoots, what with me all the way up Hillary’s ass. No, I just think she’s super-cool and I have an extraordinary amount of respect for this woman who transformed herself, both inside and out. Majors props.

I have been waiting with bated breath for her photos. I had a feeling she was submitting to SMP…and I was right! Yesterday she was featured on Style Me Pretty under Destination Weddings!

She didn’t end up wearing the hair toy I made her, but I have to say, the orchids with the yellow centers were a MUCH better choice in the grand scheme of her color story. It was all so beautiful. Here’s the sash….

She had lamented not having a lacey gown, as that was the direction she was leaning when she was first gown shopping. She ended up with something the POLAR opposite (I can relate). She asked me if I could bring a little sumpin’ sumpin’ of the now-missing lace into the sash, so I embellished the gray satin with vintage lace and vintage pearl beads.

I have to say, I’m really freakin’ excited to be one of the featured vendors on SMP, though I have a hard time swallowing that particularly bitter pill!

Make sure you check out all the pictures from her day. They are amazing. I’m going to beat down her door to come full circle. I mean she HAS to be an Unfake Bride, right? RIGHT?

Oh, and since we're on the subject of vintage lace things? I finished that shrug from last week. I finished adding all the appliques and then I decided to hand-bead the whole thing. So glad I did because it's fabulous now Check it.



It’s up and for sale here and here.  Turned out cute, no? Makes me wish I was getting married again. But only a little!

Your sash adds something different to the sash world ... which was sorely needed.
