We are still over here raving about Birmingham Fashion Week. The Magic City was on fire!! I don’t know if we mentioned this to you, but the best part of BFW, besides the fashion, is that all of the proceeds from the shows went to local charities: Camp Smile-a-Mile and Alabama Forever. That’s why we love this city– we all are so warm and helpful.

Bridal Day was the highlight of our Birmingham Fashion Week experience.  We love to watch wedding shows and were completely enamored with all the fab wedding looks. We saw designs by Heidi Elnora, Bella Couture, Ivory and White, and Bella Bridesmaids.

Lovely designs on display from local (and one national) boutiques. (From L to R) Bella Bridesmaids, Bella Couture & The Clothes Tree

Happy Valentine’s Day! If you get proposed to today/are planning a wedding, we have the perfect places for you to look for the perfect dress. These dresses were beyond gorgeous and a belle was smiling from ear to ear! We loved what we saw from the boutiques and fell in love with the chic bridesmaids dresses from Bella Bridesmaids.

Let’s Jam: Esperanza Spalding

Now y’all know a belle had to celebrate Black History Month with some fab tunes! We like to celebrate throughout the year, but we thought we’d leave y’all with a video by Esperanza Spalding. Yes she won a Grammy, yes she is self-taught, and YES this song is hot! Check out “Black Gold.” Whether you’re black or not, I think you’ll like the positivity of the video.
