It’s Friday, I’m in Love: Olivia and Bergman’s European Vacation

We’re quite jealous of our girls, Olivia and Bergman, and the “work trip” they’re taking to Italy. While they may not be able to enjoy the country as much as a real-life Lula could, we can live vicariously through these dresses and only dream of the sights they’re seeing, the wine they’re drinking, the bread they’re eating, and the handsome, Italian men they’re eyeing. The uber-talented KT Merry asked to whisk these two girls away with her for a photo shoot, and of course we couldn’t deny them of such an adventure. We will anxiously await pictures detailing their European escapades, but for now, we’re loving this inspirational idea layout from KT.

Hope you two are having fun because we aren’t jealous at all…

It’s Friday, I’m in Love: The Knot Market Mixer

We were transported to a Moroccan Soiree Wednesday night as we attended The Knot‘s Market Mixer at the ever pristine Gibbes Museum in downtown Charleston. It was such a cool event! We loved the whole vibe and getting to mingle with friends in the local and statewide Bridal Industry.

The beautiful Moroccan themed event was planned by Pure Luxe Bride and the eye catching florals were arranged by Wild Flowers Inc. We loved the colors and designs used for the programs and paper displays by The Silver Starfish.

Locally owned and hugely successful Rewined Candles was there reminding us of the perfect Bridesmaid’s gift, and our bellies were happy to see plates full with food from Mosaic Catering.

Of course no party would be complete without our friends from Squeeze OnSite creating a custom cocktail for the event-goers. We were so glad to see that our other friends from Pink Dot Beauty Bar were there to help us freshen up our makeup after indulging in all the delicious food and drinks.

And what better way to end the evening than spoiling ourselves with a decadent slice of cake from DeClare Cakes.

Thanks so much to Jennifer and the entire team at The Knot for putting on such an awesome shindig and for your partnership with LulaKate!

It’s Friday, I’m in Love: New Bridesmaid Styles and Fabrics!

Back in October at Bridal Market, we launched several new bridesmaid styles and fabric offerings. All were met with great reception from our retailers, and we just recently added them online! Take a look at our entire Bridesmaids Classic Collection and Matte Silk Collection on our website. But for now, here are some of our newest additions that are already making some noise!

Here is our new Garden Stripe fabric available in Navy (shown above), Hot Pink, and Kelly Green! Perfect for an entire Bridal Party or maybe that semi-casual rehearsal dinner. Mix it with a plain white bodice and contrasting sash for a “bridesmaids dress” that packs a punch and will be certain to be worn again.

Our French Lace fabric has already been a hit for bridal parties, MOBs, and that MOH that deserves to stand out. As with the Garden Stripe, most styles in our Classic Collection can come in these lace fabrics. Pictured below are the color offerings:

Top left to right: Navy, Beige, and Teal

Bottom left to right: Eggplant, Champagne, and Black

The Arrington features a squared off scoop neck front and low scoop back with thin straps. She’s just darling paired with a single layer sash around the waist. Photographed here in Emerald Faille but is available in all fabrics and colors!

The Nicole features a high, halter neckline with a low, open back. The wide tails of the ties in the back just makes for the perfect, girly bow! Photographed in Red Poly Shantung but available in all fabrics and colors!

In our Matte Silk Collection, the Tamara features a faux wrap bodice with a built in sash and neck tie closure. Available long or short, she’s the ideal dress for that easy, breezy bridesmaid in your wedding party! Photographed here in Ocean Matte Silk, but available in all Matte Silk colors.

These are just a few of our favorite new gals in our Classic and Matte Silk Collections. Be sure to check out the other newest additions and contact LulaKate or your closest retailer with any questions!

It’s Friday, I’m in Love: RTW Summer 2014 Collection

Our much anticipated RTW Summer 2014 Collection is now officially online and available for order! If you follow us on instagram or attended our fashion show a couple weeks ago, you may have already gotten a few sneak peeks at all the fun prints and silhouettes we’ve rolled out in this newest collection. With one trip to Atlanta Market under our belt and another big trip to the Big Apple this week for Coterie, we’re excited to show you and all the buyers out there our can’t-miss pieces for every gal’s Summer wardrobe!

Couldn’t you just live in this bright pink maxi all Summer? The Mitchell Maxi is perfect for dressing up and wearing to an outdoor wedding or can be thrown on for a lunch date with the girls! Even cooler is that this print was created by one of our dear (and extremely talented) friends, artist Sarah Boyts Yoder.

We’ve officially died and gone to gingham heaven. I’ll take one in every color, please! You can take it breezy with our Trapman skirt by throwing on a white or contrasting tank top or make things a little more serious with a white button down. We can’t resist the colors and shape of this picnic/picture perfect skirt!

Even Southern Living Magazine was on the up and up and featured a pair of our shorts in their most recent Spring Style Guide! We can’t agree more that the Port Shorts are the perfect pair to wear during those warm, Summer months to keep you cool and cute at the same time.

It’s Friday, I’m in Love: LOVE!

We’re pretty lucky to always be in the lovey dovey mood around here. After all, we’re in the business of making Brides and their ‘Maids as beautiful as can be on their one true BIG DAY of love! Whether you’re celebrating with your gal pals, fiance, or spouse, we wish a Happy Valentine’s Day to all!
