It takes a bold person to wear feathers on their wedding day. Feathers are often shunned and categorized as tacky or is placed in the costume accessories department. If overdone, yes, they can over the top. However, is this week’s collection, the designers use feathers and take on an airy new approach and create dramatic silhouettes and accents.
Belted Beauty: The bodice is pulled towards to the natural waist with mild ruching and flows down the skirt. A feathered belt is encrusted with crystals and beads giving this overall simple dress some creative expression. (Priscilla of Boston; $3000+)
Wedded Whisps: It only takes three words to describe this dress: strapless, short and sexy. Ostrich feathers layer the skirt to add some oomph to this streamline silhouette. Sparkling details around the waist and hem kick up the drama.(Sue Wong; $518)
Belted Bird: The skirt features an organza overlay and ruffled hem which adds femininity and flare. Fine feathers and beading line the belt. Watered silk peek-a-boos from under the ruffled hem adding shimmer and sheen to every step.(Junko Yoshioka; $3000+)
Full of Feathers: This tight-fitting mermaid silhouette envelopes the body with structured diamond-like pleating. The full skirt has a canopy of ostrich feathers that will surely seize the scene. Swarovski crystals at the bust add sparkle. (Jane Yeh; $4500)
Light in Flight: Feathered flowers are fastened to the single strap on this empire dress. Sweeping and light weight chiffon float around the body. An assymetrical overlay gathers at the bustline and splits into handkerchief hem. (Augusta Jones; $1500-3000)
Flowers & Feathers: The folded layers of organza create stunning architectural lines and appeals to the eye. Flowers dot the dress and feathers line the neckline and hem. (Becoming Mrs; $1800)

Kim-Erin celebrated her daughter, Riley’s first birthday with an Ice Cream Social theme. She wanted to have a theme that was unique and not overdone. Plus, who doesn’t love ice cream?! The little details really make this party one of a kind. Handmade yarn balls to replicate ice cream scoops make fabulous and affordable centerpieces. Painted terra cotta pots hold a buffet of toppings and candies. Party favors of stickers and candies wrapped in clear cellophane tease the party-goers. Plates with custom labels flaunt Riley’s name with retro Ice Cream Shoppe font. My favorite detail is the photo ice cream tree. Photo ornaments of Riley and ice cream cones are fastened to the branches and drip with charming appeal. Happy birthday, Riley!

I stumbled upon this week’s collection via Portland Fashion Week (October 7-10, 2009). The designer, Angelia Sasmita, currently resides in Shoreline, Washington. Another local talent! Her Spring collection is inspired by all things natural: water, wind and the heavens.
Soft and flowy fabrics that move with the wind are key characteristics in Angelia’s collection. Light and airy chiffons and french lace recreate nature’s best on the body. While heavier silks like duchess satin helps frame the body with sumptuous fabric. Subtle earthy colors such as ivories, creams and pinks are prominently found. Details are abound! Scattered beads, pearls and stones hems show off Angelia’s artistic steer towards the sparkly stars in the heavens.
Brooches and bows literally tie each of the designs together. Dainty peplums and ruching around the waist detail add texture and drama to the skirts. While the bodice and neckline showcase her exquisite beading and detail.
Her prices range from $850-3500.
