Style Me Pretty Wedding Inspirations

Category: Bridal, Inspiration, LR Loves

If there's one thing we know here at Loeffler Randall it's this: the love is in the details. Which is why we fell head over heels with Style Me Pretty's founder and cheif editor: Abby Larson, who admitted, "I spend my days scouring the internet for beautiful things, walking the streets waiting to be inspired, roaming the aisles of my favorite little bookshop...all day, dreaming about weddings."

 

Much like Loeffler Randall's own design process, Style Me Pretty breathes character and personal charm into their work, and with that we are excited to share with you Abby's Wedding Inspirations featuring Loeffler Randall's Fall 2011 Bridal Collection below.

 

WEDDING INSPIRATIONS By Abby Larson

 

You know, it's funny. Whenever we feature a picture perfect wedding on Style Me Pretty, the shoes... without a doubt... get the most amount of comments. Maybe it's a girl thing, maybe it's a bride thing. Maybe it's simply that when it comes to wedding day style, the stilettos are becoming JUST as important as the gown. They are the one piece that can bring a bit of sparkle or edge or whimsy to an otherwise traditional look, giving the bride a perfect way to infuse a bit of her personality or her spunk into the style. Ask any wedding stylist... the shoes are big. Huge.

 

This is why when the fab girls at Loeffler Randall asked me to create a few of my favorite looks based around a particular shoe from their new bridal collection, I jumped. One look at these beauts and I knew EXACTLY the looks that I wanted to design. The first is based on the Zuri stiletto in platinum.  This glittery little number brings together a classic, refined style with a heel that is ALL glam.

 

 

What I love the most about this particular look is that the gold becomes the place setting for the entire style. We added a feathery, frilly gown by Vera Wang to add a bit of softness to the shoe, flowers in pops of red, pink and orange and a boy donned in the most classic of bow ties. It's tradition with a twist which is bar none the most popular style for the SMP bride.

 

 

Up next we used the drool-inducing Zuri rosette stiletto in blush as our inspiration point and frankly, the wedding style just came pouring out. An uber chic, Parisian couture look was the perfect compliment to the stem. A gown by Temperly of London, a white on white cake by our favorite patisserie Sweet & Saucy, touches of gold and blushy pinks... understated elegance with little hints of full-on glam. For us, this look is the definition of romance and style.


So there you have it, two perfect shoes, two perfect bridal styles. We always say that inspiration can come from just about anywhere... a vintage bottle of perfume, a painting, an old sweater... or the most gorgeous pair of stilettos a girl has ever seen. Thanks so much Loeffler Randall for having us here today! We heart you. Big Time.

A Brooklyn Bride with LR Pride

Category: Bridal, LR Loves

You may recall our post in April about Fashionista editor Lauren Sherman's visit to pick out bridesmaids' shoes for her wedding. We caught up with bridesmaid Hannah Elliott, Lauren's friend from her days at Forbes magazine, to hear how the wedding went.

 

LAUREN'S WEDDING - Hannah Elliott


I was thrilled when Lauren asked me to be in her wedding. Lauren was one of the first people at Forbes to make a point to befriend me, and I highly respect her integrity, work ethic and sense of style.

 

For the wedding, I chose the Ondine flat in nude because I liked the way it wrapped around my ankle, and the way it blended almost perfectly with the color of my skin.

 

Several of Lauren's neighbors had been watching through their windows for when she would emerge- they all ran to kiss her as we left for the event. Her Andra Gabrielle dress, the I Love Factory headpiece, and the Loeffler Randall shoes were a huge hit.

 

All in all, the wedding was a smashing success: everything went off without a hitch, the bride was beautiful, the groom handsome, the couple in love, and the shoes perfect. Who could ask for more?

 

 

We also wanted to find out more about Hannah herself, as her position at Forbes poses unique demands regarding staying stylish on the job (check out her Forbes page here, and follow her Twitter here). Hannah was kind enough to answer a few questions from us about her business chic:

 

How do you keep your professional wardrobe fun and interesting?

I visit vintage fairs and people-watch in new places where I might see something unique.

 

Between test-driving Aston Martins and taking motorcycle driving lessons, your job poses unique wardrobe demands. How has this affected your personal style?

The simple logistics of my beat have certainly forced me to be versatile: I've got to have some clothes in my closet that I can wear to fashion parties, and some that I can wear outside all day or to drive in (heels, for instance, are definitely out for manual transmissions.) It's a fun, if schizophrenic, way to dress.

 

What essentials do you like to carry with you for business travel?
Several books. An iPhone, mostly  for listening to music and photographing interesting things to remind me about them later. A leather roller duffel bag- the best travel invention since recling seats.

 

What is your latest NYC discovery that you are excited about?

The Lion and The Fat Radish aren't entirely new, but I've found myself there lately and have a renewed affection for them. Cake Truffles from Momofuku Milk Bar. The Manhattan Vintage Show is a perennial favorite.

 

If you had a theme song, what would it be?

"Hannah," by Ray LaMontagne.

Wedding Inspiration from Fashionista's Lauren Sherman

Category: Bridal, Inspiration, LR Loves

We we thrilled when Fashionista editor and bride-to-be Lauren Sherman stopped by the LR office last week. The purpose of her visit? Outfitting her bridesmaids with shoes from the new Loeffler Randall bridal collection. On hand was Hannah Elliot, trusted bridesmaid and friend of Lauren's from her days at Forbes. After chatting with Jessie, who offered up wedding day tips, Lauren and Hannah made their selections: three bridesmaids will wear the Ondine criss-cross flat, and one will wear the Rowena ruffle sandal , all in nude. Join us in wishing Lauren a wonderful wedding day next weekend in Brooklyn.

 

 

 

Lauren has been so kind as to give us a sneak peek at a few of her wedding details, below. Consider it a fashionista's guide to wedding planning. Enjoy!

 

 

A WEDDING GROWS IN BROOKLYN - Lauren Sherman

 

When my fiance and I became engaged about a year ago, we were instantly certain of one thing: We'd be throwing the wedding in Brooklyn. With family spread across the country and friends across the globe, our own neighborhood of Carroll Gardens seemed like the best fit. It was only a question of how to go about our ideal celebration without depleting our life savings.

 

Luckily, as reporters, we're both expert researchers, which led us to The Green Building, a charming old foundry on Union Street near the Gowanus Canal. With white washed brick, tin foil ceilings, and old-timey chandeliers, The Green Building reminded us of an urban barn - and it also happened to be in our price range. From there, the rest was easy. Zaytoons, the Lebanese restaurant around the corner, was booked as the caterer. We ordered our cakes from Red Hook's Baked and reserved Greenpoint's Van Leeuwen Ice Cream truck.

 

As for the decor - I wanted it to look like the inside of one of my favorite restaurants, either Frankie's Sputino, The Smile, or Henry Public. My fiance and I decided to rent three long banquet tables and cover them with butcher paper. We've even printed the menus ourselves and used stamps I picked up at Smith + Butler to decorate them.

 

For my dress, I commissioned the lovely Chelsea-based designer, Andra Gabrielle, to create my dream gown, an off-white shift in silk taffeta with lace overlay. My headpiece was made by the Brooklyn-based millinery I Love Factory. My bridesmaids dresses were easy to find, as were my wedding shoes.

 

But when I saw the Loeffler Randall wedding collection, I knew I had to somehow incorporate it into the day. Could I switch shoes instead of dresses between the ceremony and the reception? No, that seemed a little bit out of character for me. But I've been a fan of LR since the beginning, and love Jessie Randall's distinctly Brooklyn aesthetic. Luckily, my bridesmaids were in need of some nude stunners to pair with their sea green shifts. All four will be wearing Loeffler Randall on my day, adding one last piece of the puzzle.
