ann taylor "see now, wear now" for your bridesmaids
Ann Taylor has a new head designer named Lisa Axelson who is catching a lot of praise for her recent makeover of the label's conservative image. When the collection was shown this year at Fashion Week, people questioned whether or not they were in the right place. After all, the looks coming down the runway didn't resemble anything they had seen on a mall mannequin before. "Ann Taylor stepped up its styling game for Thursday," the Wall Street Journal reported, "to give its pieces more of a high-fashion aesthetic. Unlike the other shows in the nearby Bryant Park tents, which were displaying styles for spring, the Ann Taylor presentation was dubbed “See Now, Wear Now.” All of the looks will soon be available and ready for purchase for fall 2009. Good news for brides looking for a bit of high fashion when it comes to their accessories and bridesmaid dresses.
Bridesmaid ready looks that graced the runway include Silk Tiered Strapless Dress, $240. Among my favorite accessories are this Crystal Bib Necklace, $50 and Gemstone Slippers, $50. I can't think of anything more stylish to slip into after a long night of dancing. If you have a friend getting married soon, why not gift her with these and call them the ultimate frill!
