{Denim} ...

the New {Tuxedo}?
It used to be that denim attire was the outfit of choice for activities that were menial in nature or that required heavy labor. That was then when Levi's cornered the market for outfitting those that desired the laid-back, easy look of a long, lazy summer afternoon.
Fast-forward to today. With such haute fashion names as True Religion, Applebottom, J Brand, Juicy Couture, 7 For all Mankind by Style and Mavi, there are many fashion trendsetters who would, arguably, announce that you are not 'properly dressed' unless you are sporting a pair of high fashioned {read- high priced}, body hugging, hip riding denim.
By the looks of some of the ladies in the pictures below, denim is here and making a 'high' style statement! Perhaps if you are stuck for a 'theme' for one of your upcoming events/parties, you can turn to the world of high profile fashion for your answer.

Her bold use of pave diamonds with rock crystal, both faceted and un-faceted, black spinel, white agate and black onyx speaks to her innovative ideas for our beloved, bejewelled stones.

{Work Out} ::

After the 'I will' comes the marathon planning towards 'THE BIG EVENT'. So many questions, so much work! First the engagement parties and then the 'real' planning. Often overlooked, when planning a wedding, is the physical challenge that planning requires. The many venue site visits, the exhilarating but physically exhausting act of trying on your coveted gown. Not to mention the miles accumulated while walking to, amoungst and between all of the other vendors and venue sites- that will complete the necessary details that will make your event 'POP'.
To prepare for all of the physical demands that planning a wedding commands, why not prepare for your big day by enrolling in a Bridal Boot Camp! Oh yeah, you might just shrink one dress size while you’re at it.
Virtually every bride (and bridesmaids) freaks out over fitting into her dress, never mind merely looking great in it! Bridal Bootcamps ensures that your dress will fit perfectly and that you look stunning on your big day! Most bridal bootcamps feature special bootcamp programs customized for you and your wedding party that will make sure that every member of the bridal party looks their best.
