What’s Your Shape?

April 22, 2013
Whats Your Fit?
Whats Your Fit? by bchhuor featuring beaded wedding gowns
Dear Loves,
I’m back after a few weeks off. It’s always nice to take some time away from your daily life and snap into the outside world.
Anyhow, during my time away, I hung out with some friends and we somehow ended up talking about weddings and wedding dresses and more wedding ideas. But our main topic was the wedding dress. One of my girlfriends asked.. “how do you know what dress fits your body type? There’s so many selections out there, how do you know which ones to pick and choose from?”
I’ve noticed many brides tend to have the same wedding dress issues concerning which style best matches their figure. We’re all created differently but we each have our own flattering curves to show off on our day.. its just a matter of how you show it off. Most brides to be already have an idea of what dress they’ll be strutting down the aisle but to those who have little to no clue.. don’t you worry child.. this post is directed towards you.. and of course to all the future brides out there.
So.. before we get into which style best matches your body type, lets first figure out what your body shape is. There are 4 different body shapes in a woman’s figure:
1. Straight/ Petite Figures (No shape whatsoever.. boyish figure)
2. Apple Shaped Figures (Ladies with knockers)
3. Pear Shape Figures (Ladies with hips that don’t lie)
4. The Hourglass Figures (A mix of both Apples and Pears with very tiny waist)
So once you’ve identified your shape, figuring out your PERFECT DRESS is that much easier.

A Minty Fresh Green Wedding

March 15, 2013
A Minty Fresh Green Wedding
A Minty Fresh Green Wedding by bchhuor featuring shoes
Dear Loves, 
Second post for the week.. crazy right?? hehe .. I’m up late trying to keep up with life outside of work.. hopefully it pays off..
Anyhow.. today’s inspiration comes from St. Patty’s Day that’s coming up. (don’t forget to wear green or risk getting pinched a few times :)) Lately I’ve been seeing a whole lot of mint green everywhere.. I first started loving mint green back in grade school.. and kids thought I was weird cause that color just wasn’t in then.. if I could go back in time and stick my tongue out at every one of them I totally would right now.. 🙂 just kidding.. 😉 but on a serious note.. I’m so happy that Mint green is now the it color in fashion, decor, and now weddings!!! When the color green comes up.. we all think its hard to match because its such a loud and bold color that whatever color scheme we try to match it with, it wouldn’t match well at all. Lets think again.. if you have a bold color, always tone it down with a softer pastel color or if worst comes to worst.. opt for the nude or taupe.. Trust me.. those colors will always be the go-to-run-to colors for a very long time.
I’m so in love with this green I can’t express to you how excited I was to make this post for you. Mint green can be used in many different ways with many neutral colors.
First off ladies.. your bridesmaid’s dresses..
Don’t be afraid to play with style.. Short mint green dresses can be seen as a 50’s dress (which is super cute) and long maxi mint green dresses.. well some styles can be pulled off by every height.. but some should stay on taller gals.. only because the color is so soft and bright that it can take away from your figure and drain you in all that mint. But play with the different styles.
Decor:
You definitely want to keep the mint green to a minimal because you want to showcase all your favors and flowers.. not just the mint green.. again.. keep it simple so that you don’t take the attention away from all the other details other than the green.
Grooms and Groomsmen:
Grey Grey Grey!!!!!! Keep it as soft as possible… Black can come off too harsh that it distracts from the mint green. Grey is such an awesome color because it matches every color without making it look so loud. Bow tie it, skinny it up, or just a traditional tie will do for your charming men.
Favors and all the other good stuff:
Be creative and think of what Mint Green reminds you of..cupcakes? ice cream? mints?.. Mint Green is seen as a rustic type of theme.. almost shabby chic with just very minimal shabby in it. Play with your ideas and you’ll come up with something cute and minty 🙂
This color is best with an outdoor daytime event rather than a night time reception only because the color is so soft it wouldn’t stand out as nice in pictures at night than it would during the daytime.
So there you go ladies and gents!!!:)
Be inspired and get creative…
Happy MINTY FRESHNESS ❤

Wedding Dresses Vol.2

March 13, 2013

IMG_1426

Dear Loves, 

So I’ve been doing a ton of wedding business lately and hopefully this craziness continues. Can I just say how blessed I am to be working in an industry that I absolutely love. Creating a sketched imagination and bringing it altogether for a couples new beginning is the best gift I can give back to someone who truly trusted me with their big day.

Anyhow. this post is going to be really short with mainly just pictures. I’ve been going to bridal shows and meeting new brides and vendors and I’ve seen and came across many new ideas. The latest one that I attended was in Santa Monica on a hotel Penthouse. Such a great view to be working with. Anyhow there was a fashion show that was incorporated into the bridal show itself and these dresses were AMAZING!!! The trend at this bridal show was backless and again LACE!!!

So, here are pictures up front and personal for you to fall in love with!!!

Pucker Those Lips <3

March 4, 2013

Image   Image

Dear Loves, 

Ok so today I’m doing something kinda different but still in the same subject of weddings!! It’ll be a shorter post but nonetheless a post 🙂 …

So I’m a huge fan of Michelle Phan, we all know who she is right?? If you don’t, youtube her..she made a name for her self on Youtube and became one of the biggest makeup marketers out there. Shes an amazing makeup artist who can basically transform herself into any looks she wants with just make up. Shes so amazing… you need to check out her page on youtube cause its AMAZING!!!

Anyways.. today’s inspiration comes from puckered LIPS!!  Yup.. I bet we all have makeup from last year that is used maybe a few times if not..never.. hahah.. don’t lie!! Like buying lip shades we thought we’d like and wear but end up having second thoughts about.. yeah lets play with those leftover lip sticks.

So Michelle had this brilliant idea of mixing two lipstick shades together to create something new of your own. Its a super fast, fun, and an interesting DIY project Brides can use and do for their wedding day. Especially if they are particular about their makeup.  So here are the tools you’ll need..

1.2 different lip colors

2. a spoon

3. 1 toothpick

4. any empty case (contact case works too)

I used an empty chapstick case that I just finished.

5. a lighter

IMG_1289

Step 1: Take your toothpick and shave off an amount from both lipsticks onto the spoon like so..

IMG_1291

Step 2: Take the lighter an melt the two colors together from below the spoon.. (not the top or you’ll burn them..)

Its pretty cool watching it melt together cause of the colors mixing together. Kinda pretty too haha:).

IMG_1293

Step 3. Once it is completely melted, take your toothpick and mix the two together then quickly pour the new color into the empty case. You MUST WASH THE SPOON RIGHT AWAY otherwise it will dry up fast and stick to your spoon. 

IMG_1297

and then.. TADA!!! YOU’RE NEW CREATION!!! So cool right? Its like chemistry all over again ^_~

This here is my creation.. a mix of Clinique’s Raspberry Glace and Too Face Totally Nude!!

So there you go ladies.. something new and creative to do and play with. It was actually really fun and easy to do. I’m now on a hunt to find all my loner lipsticks that never got used to its fullest potential haha. Once you find the color that matches you, you may want to just only use your customized  lip gloss than your makeup artists 🙂

This was the creation of Michelle Phan and her creativity. Thanks to her and this post.. I may just customize my lip gloss until I find something else better to do. : )

Happy Experimental,

~.~ Wedding Nail Art ~.~

March 3, 2013

Dear Loves, 

Today’s inspiration comes from FINGER NAILS!! I was watching Juno the other day and as the doctors office scene with the nerdy Asian girl came on screaming “babies have FINGER NAILS!! I laughed (that girl is so cute haha) and thought about Brides getting their nails done. Lets face it.. Nail Art is the newest and biggest trend in the fashion industry. This new trend is now being show cased by young teenagers to even A- List Celebrities.. we all want to be like those celebs right?? Back in my days.. (about 5 years ago haha) solid one colored fingers was the way to go then sooner and not one minute later did the Art of Nail become the new “Must Try- Must Have” trend.

Most Brides then and even today will opt for the traditional French Manicure with or without acrylics which is fine considering how clean and natural it appears. With such neutral/close to natural colors, this style can be used versatility in the professional world, casually and even formal setting. Photogenically speaking that particular style/trend photographs well in any and most occasions especially when it comes to those special moments.

However, like today’s Fashion Trend, the attention to detail has become more critical to the more aware audience. Many young fashionista’s are stepping outside the box and daring themselves to create something bold not in their fashion but with their nails as well and to top it off.. even the A-Listers are also attending to the growing trend with crazy Nail Art.

Question is.. DO YOU DARE TO WEAR..

Or maybe even Pearls?? (this is adorbs too <3)

Whichever one you choose to do.. just make sure, ladies, to always get your nails done before the big day.. You really don’t want to look back at your wedding pictures 20 years from now and realize how unattractive your nails were right?? I personally think its a great idea to step outside the box with these Nail Art ideas, who knows.. years from now, this trend may have faded thus possibly allowing generation Z to bring back the trend WE all started.

My Favorite??

I’m totally in love with this creation… I’m so determined to find an artist to mimic this exact design on my one finger 🙂 I love love love this look.. its all over my phone, wallpaper, laptop, my mind.. haha!! How gorgeous, pretty, sick, beautiful is that FINGER?? 🙂

BE BOLD, UNIQUE, AND DIFFERENT from the average Bride:)

Happy Nail Artistry,

Vera Wang Fall 2012 Collection (Black Wedding Gowns)

January 30, 2013
Vera Wang Fall Collection 2012 (Black Wedding Gowns)
Vera Wang Fall Collection 2012 (Black Wedding Gowns) by bchhuor on Polyvore
Dear Loves, 
Today’s inspiration comes from designer Wedding Gown herself, Vera Wang. I was watching a show last night and this bride wanted a Vera Wang dress more than anything and then I remembered seeing Vera’s line of Black Bridal Dresses. At first when I saw the collection.. there were many questions and comments running through my mind. Then I found myself really at ahh with this collection. Something about this line really changed my mind and point of view of this collection  (besides the obvious of course :)). It’s not as bad as it seems or sounds. Her cut and detailed lines really soften the harsh dark color making the gown just as sweet and elegant as her other lines. If you really take a look at the dress and focus on the art work that is done here.. you can really see how elegant this collection really is. Yes its black and I’m not sure who would actually wear a Black Wedding Dress on their special day but if there are any brides out there who really wants a NON TRADITIONAL wedding gown.. consider Vera Wang’s line please!! I don’t think any other Black Wedding Dress will be as gorgeous and as impressive as this line. Like I said.. the textures, detailing and lining of this unique idea makes up for the Black.
On the bright side.. if you do decide to go with a Black Wedding Dress, this gives you a chance to be more creative with all the other fun stuff. Since black goes with everything, be creative and get colorful with this style. Choose dark contrasting colors to play up your centerpieces and your bouquets. Add rhinestones to complete the elegance of the wedding. But don’t go crazy with the dark color or the darkness of the theme cause if may turn out to be a Halloween party or wedding (unless that’s what you were going for.. then cheers to you  :)). Definitely consider using as much rhinestones as possible.. that will soften the harsh dark colors used in the wedding.
I LOVE LOVE LOVE David Tutera and I’m always watching his show for tips and advice.. So to all my future dark goth-like brides.. here are a few tips to plan your big day from David Tutera himself.
Take it from the pro himself.. otherwise you risk turning your wedding into a Halloween Party.
Hope you ladies enjoyed this Black Wedding Gown segment.. remember to be creative and imaginative.
Good Luck and Have fun ❤
Happy Imaginations ❤

Bridal Fashion Faux or Bridal Must??

January 26, 2013
Vintage Meets Chic
Vintage Meets Chic by bchhuor featuring hats
Dear Loves,
Today’s inspiration comes from.. well.. my hair… I woke up this morning and my hair was just a complete frizz ball.. which ironically helped me come up with this topic. It’s winter season and ladies.. you know just as well as I do our hair can get kinda crazy sometimes. In the winter season, our hair tends to get either flat or static like and its absolute NO BUENO  right? Anyways.. back to the topic..
Bridal Hair Pieces. Accessorizing is the most important thing when it comes to fashion. It makes up and completes whatever look we are going after. However too much accessory (just like makeup..) can make the wrong statement for your look and it may not even look right therefore turning the attention away from YOU (MRS.)  and onto the other stuff that are on you.
Brides often cannot decided how to wear their hair and its not a surprise.. about 100 other cameras will be on you for a good 10 hours and you want to look your best cause lets face it.. we all would like to do this just one time and its the only time to make it absolutely perfect right? So perfection is a must on the day of.
Traditionally veils (it started off long and as years passed by, it got shorter and shorter) were the fashion trend for brides.. from the different types of Tulles used to the size of the Tulles. Just like how our  fashion quickly changes, bridal fashion changes as well. Going from traditional to a more modern wedding, more and more brides are stepping out of the old school look into the new generation X look. With all the social media that is out there, we are exposed to more vision which helps us create our ideas and imaginations. Brides have gotten more comfortable with expressing their wants and needs which allows them to create the perfect day of their dreams. However there are some brides out there that still love the traditional long veil look and there is of course nothing wrong with that as well.
So to all my daring brides out there.. would you strut these floral head piece on your wedding day instead of the traditional veil? I personally think this alternative veil is a gorgeous look that goes with a soft side bun. If you have a favorite side that compliments you most in pictures , (I favor my left side only cause I have chubby cheeks and this pose helps to minimize my cheeks haha 🙂 ) this would be a great look for you. Not only will all lens be on your head piece but it will also reflect your favored, best side. I also think this look compliments your beauty more because it can soften the look of your hair as well as your makeup. It’s another great statement that completes your beatified, most gorgeous adoring look.
So ladies.. if you (like me) would definitely strut this.. strut this proud.. and to my more traditional ladies who are worried it would look funny on you.. head down to a local accessory store and try one on. You would be amazed at the difference this piece can make on your head and your gown.
TOTAL STRUT ❤
Happy Imagination and Accessorizing  ❤
