Dakota from Blush by Hayley Paige

Hello Lovelies!

Its time for another installment in our Hayley Paige saga. We’ve taken a detailed look at 3 Blush by Hayley Paige gowns and we are still waiting for our last one, Kingston, to come in. Today, we have Dakota, our second to last gown and the second gown featuring Marrakesh Beading.

The other gown in our inventory to feature Marrakesh is West.  As you can see there are many obvious differences such as silhouette, straps and amount of Marrakesh. But one that is not so obvious is the difference in lining colors.  West’s lining is Cashmere and Dakota’s is Nude.

WEST
DAKOTA

 

Dakota is from the most recent season of Blush by Hayley Paige. It has the very sought after demure skirt paired with a very princess-y bodice.

For Utah brides, this dress is an excellent option if you need a modest gown. We can very easily order the Marrakesh beading and make the bodice modest without losing the integrity of the design and without having it look like piecework.

The Skinny

Silhouette: Ball Gown

Neckline: V-Neck

Waistline: Natural – it actually falls just below the natural waist but not low enough to be a “corset” waist.

Straps: Cap Sleeves

Back: Keyhole

Fabric: Marrakesh beaded bodice and tulle skirt

Sparkle Factor: 4/5

The Marrakesh Beading is very obvious and the only way for it to be more sparkly is if it covered the whole gown.

Boho Factor: 1/5

This gown reaches clearly to the “princess” side of the spectrum. There is a little bit of a Boho vibe from the lace and relaxed silhouette of the ballgown but that’s about it.

 

I wasn’t sure if I was going to like this gown. Now that it’s here… it is quickly becoming one of my favorites.

I think it is such a fresh and flawless design from Miss Hayley Paige. What are your thoughts?

Until next time,

Becca

Stylist Picks: Urban Jungle

Hello Gorgeous,

Its time for one of my favorite types of posts: Stylist Picks! I’m taking a setting/venue that is common among brides this year and together with the other Bitsy Stylists will highlight our favorite gowns in every silhouette for the chosen setting!30

This round’s setting:  URBAN JUNGLE

Country-chic and feminine-floral are still going strong but the edgier, urban style is starting to come back and its coming back fast. So, for the brides getting married in lofts, industrial building, city center hotels, train stations turned reception venues, or anywhere with exposed brick, steel or concrete; these gowns are for you.

Ballgown

This ballgown from Ella Rosa is the perfect choice for an urban wedding. There is just enough sparkle paired with the clean lines and sheer nude illusion neckline. Together they make the ultimate centerpiece for a city-based wedding.

A-line

Christos does several things extremely well. One of them is a flowing, A-line silhouette. This gorgeously beaded gown, Paisley, is no exception.  The sheer back and side panels only adds to the romantic allure. Simple and comfortable with feminine and sparkling details, Paisley, is the perfect reflection of venues such as exposed lofts and industrial spaces.

Fit and Flare

Smooth crepe from head to toe, this Mikaella gown is elegant and classic.  Add the sparkling belt and suddenly its that much more romantic. Don’t let the beach-based pictures fool you, this gown is destined to be photographed under city lights and next to stunning architecture.

Column

The romantic lace and beaded applique on Idella from Kelly by Kelly Faetanini are such a perfect pair. Any ballroom or loft will be made all the more perfect with the addition of this beautiful gown.

Trumpet

Silk shantung and architectural seaming make Tamara from Tulle New York absolutely stunning. Its hard to pick the best part of this true trumpet gown. The v-back, perfectly placed seams and a crisp off the shoulder neckline are all downright perfect.

Non Traditional

 

 

 

 

 

Meet Kate, from Tara Keely. This gown is a column silhouette and covered in caviar beading. With the addition of the removable tulle over-skirt it becomes a flowing A-line gown with a glistening under-layer. If you are getting married in a chic ballroom or a museum this gown would be perfect.
