Bridal Market: Maria Elena Headpieces Private Viewing

Our exclusive Bridal Market coverage continues with Maria Elena Headpieces. Its lead designer and our good friend, Maria Elena, operates out of Miami. (If you missed our photos from the Lazaro runway show and Mira Zwillinger private viewing, click here.) Every year we wait in anticipation to see what Maria Elena will create. This year she infused mother of pearl, crystals, and semiprecious stones, the newest element, to the pieces. These hued stones are so special because they introduce new hues of color and texture we have never seen before into the collection. Also, one of the standout pieces, one that we absolutely loved, was the new clutch they created with purple semiprecious stones; so chic! Revel in the glamour of these heirloom works of art. And instead of dreaming of one day owning a piece so beautiful, stay tuned for information on our upcoming Maria Elena Headpieces trunk show, […]

A Bride’s Clutch

It’s all about the details. It’s about the gorgeous gown, perfect hair and makeup, and sparkling accessories. One of our favorite bridal accessories is the clutch. The clutch serves a dual purpose. One, it’s fabulous in photos, as it’s another way to bring a bridal look full circle. Two, it’s functional, serving as a carrier for essentials like lip gloss, compact mirror, mints, what-have-you. Below are some of our favorites. And you’ll notice a trend – many are Maria Elena minaudieres. They’re embellished pieces that have “heirloom” written all over them, and we do carry these stunning pieces in our salons. Enjoy the inspiration.     Photo Credits: 1 Maria Elena Headpieces clutch 2 Kristin Vining Photography 3 Lindsay Madden Photography 4 Maria Elena Headpieces accessories 5 Style Art Life / Jimmy Choo clutch (via). 6 Maria Elena Headpieces clutch 7 Lisa Rigby Photography (via) 8 Kristin Vining Photography 9 […]
