It's Your Day, Own It!


This is not actually a bridal portrait but from the bridal designer Rachel Gilbert.  Don't get me wrong, I like the dress but I just love the pose.  It's not the typical bride portrait and I find it quite alluring.  The model is giving off the impression of OWNING the day.  And that is something that I love: a bride that is neither nervous or upset, but feels like she owns her wedding day.

Let's dance!

I recently had a lovely bride that couldn't dance very well in her gown.  If only she had this frock, then she could have really been able to cut a rug.  I would like to point out that the model is 5'11" so most brides would get a tad more coverage.  The dress is available at bhldn.

Calling All Cubs Fans

I know, I have been MIA.  But, I am trying to recover from dengue fever.  It's been rough.  

Until then, check out this video from Chris & Oliver of a wedding from this past Spring.

I love you Sarah Janks.

Sarah Janks has the most amazing collection of bridal gowns that I have seen in a very long time. I am swooning; these are simply gorgeous.  I have selected a few of my favorite gowns by this Sydney based designer.


Bow, lace, tulle equals fabulous.  I haven't seen anything like this and am in total love.

Can this come in blush?  Because this could become my new go-to frock.
I am loving that high neckline.

My name is Misse Daniel and I am obsessed with bows.  But what I am obsessed with is the skirt.  It suggests a casual elegance that would work perfectly for a certain type of wedding.  I could plan a wedding just around this gown.  I am actually dreaming up the wedding (down to the escort cards) based on this gown.

The Nanny Photographer

I am obsessed with the nanny photographer, Vivian Maier. You can imagine my delight when I read that the Chicago History Museum is going to host an exhibit starting this Saturday, September 8th on her work.  

I'd love to buy some of her prints but am afraid that they are out of my budget.  Until they are, her book is on the top of my wishlist.
