Wedding Heaven

I haven't been to New York for about 5 years and the clock is ticking; I'm dying to go back again. You know that urge to go somewhere when you can't stop thinking about it?...the pull is so strong. Well as soon as I do manage to get there (NYC with a toddler? hhmm...why not!) one of my first stops will be the new J Crew Bridal store. It's their first store dedicated to all things wedding related and it showcases the fabulous J Crew signature styling overseen by the so, so talented Jenna Lyons.

The interior alone has a wow factor. It's designed to look like a French salon but with endless quirky details to get your ideas flowing (and to loosen the purse strings no doubt!) The brides and bridesmaid dresses are mixed in with items from the main J Crew line to show how to accessorize to perfection.

I love the nuetral colour palette with pops of strong colours like tangerine and peacock blue...

So much inspiration...not just for weddings but home too!

Talk about making your wedding dress shopping easy! Stunning, roomy changing areas with flattering light..unlike some of the bridal shops I've been into where you're shoved behind a curtain with barely any room to get the damn dress on...and then you have to come out to the shop floor to look in the mirror where everyone can see you as you deliberate in public about the most important dress decision you'll ever have to make. Privacy please!
J Crew have it sussed with this stunning boutique...

And in case you're wondering; this is my current fave from their collection. So whenever I manage to get there, you know this will be the first one I try on...

...but I'll be my lovely changing area where no-one can see!

I got my wedding dress from Jen Doherty (here in dublin) and she does that style of dress in the pic.. the back is fab.

This boutique is so clever and so lovely. I've loved J Crew for a long time, long before Michele Obama. One fine day I will walk into J Crew and buy one of their wonderful cashmere sweaters - that is one of every design and of every colour!

I ADORE JCrew. Every time I'm in NYC I go into the one on 5th at Rockerfeller and the one at South Street Seaport. It's such a good shop for cardis in bold colours, summer dresses and t's and great jewellery. I will deffo try out this new shop. now, better buy a flight pronto!!
