We are absolutely blown away by Bona Drag‘s first Ceremonial Collection, a beautifully curated selection of bridal gowns and jewelry including special collaborations with Mara Hoffman, Unearthen, Lindsey Thornburg, Pamela Love, and Meredith Kahn of Made Her Think. These handpicked designers have created unique and romantic pieces, ranging from the modernly classic to gothic fairy tale to Victorian elegance. Mara Hoffman’s first ever bridal gown features a fully beaded bodice with hints of steel grey and Unearthen’s crown heirloom ring comes as a set perfect for you and your beau. Indeed, love is in the air.
Several weeks ago, I briefly stopped over in London before embarking on a week long sailing adventure in Greece. After turning to my trusty travel advisors at Mr & Mrs Smith, I opted to stay at The Cranley, a classically British and an incredibly charming boutique hotel in South Kensington. I must say, I was impressed with how much we were able to accomplish in just a couple of days – witnessing tennis superstars Serena and Venus Williams win their semifinal doubles match at Wimbledon, shopping at the wonderful and iconic Liberty of London, charging through the fabulous museums along Exhibition Road, and enjoying the most delightful high tea at The Savoy. And to top it all of, our digs at The Cranley was truly the icing on the cake . . . or rather, the clotted cream on the scone. You get my drift.
These cool and seemingly effortless looks from Rabens Saloner makes me wish we could drag these last few weeks of summer out as long as possible. Let’s pack our bags with long lavender chiffon dresses, earth-toned cotton separates, and loose fitting grey sweaters and fly off to a faraway place . . .
