Why Choose a Special “Getting Ready” Look?

Friday, July 25th, 2014

Amid all of  the frenzy of wedding planning,  the difficult choices and challenging concerns, what gals will wear as their “getting ready” ensemble is one of the more fun decisions to make!    

Whatever you choose,  slipping into this garment will cause your heart to beat a little more quickly reflecting that it is the last thing you will wear before stepping into your dream gown to walk down the aisle!

Although treasured, most bridal gowns are relegated to a closet or given to charity, so selecting a look that you can keep in service after the big day is not only practical, but will bring a knowing smile of magical memories each time it is worn.   You will always recall where you were and how excited and happy you were feeling!

Oversize shirts have been hugely popular because, for starters,  they look casual and classy at the same time!   In addition to avoiding hair and make-up mishaps while getting dressed, they are fabulous for group photos and with skinny jeans and leggings back on the fashion radar, they are the perfect way to top off those bottoms!   Many of our gals have also found them fun to wear as a beach cover-up and even a comfy nightshirt.  

Last but not least, your team will love your thoughtfulness  in selecting something that  they, too, can wear again and again revisiting the cherished memories all of you share!    oxford getting ready shirtp oxford getting ready shirtj oxford getting ready shirte oxford getting ready shirt6 oxford getting ready shirt5 il_570xN.629015164_jagd   advantagebridal_2326_671834222 advantagebridal_2321_208693519 advantagebridal_2320_391884262

Why “Bling” Might Just Be A Natural Thing!

Friday, June 6th, 2014

Do you find yourself gazing at brilliant stars in the night sky, shimmering holiday twinkle lights or glistening silver and gold ornaments on a tree?  Is your eye drawn to dazzling diamond rings and stunning cut glass chandeliers?     Does your guy love spending an afternoon washing his vintage car or motorcycle and checking his reflection in the newly polished chrome?  Why do sparkling things give us such pleasure?  

It seems scientists have shared research which proposes that sparkle itself has long been the object of human desire for its potential to represent something of need, like a running stream with water that is safe to drink.  

Whether or not we believe that our love of bling is wired in our DNA, it’s hard to deny the attraction!   A bit of sparkle always seems to bring a bright spot to our day!  Here are a few of our latest designs that we hope will brighten yours!

Prom Garters! The Must-Have Accessory!

Friday, April 4th, 2014

The history of the wedding garter which dates back for centuries is fairly common knowledge for most brides these days and having endured the test of time, remains a very popular bridal accessory and focus for a familiar reception ritual.  Even if a bride chooses not to have a garter removed in front of an audience of enthusiastic well-wishers, most love this alluring piece of antiquity worn discretely under a gown for their groom to discover after the festivities have died down.

In as much the pomp and circumstance of weddings, the spectacle of a gorgeous gown and sparkling jewelry are the fairy tale dreams of so many young gals, it is no surprise to see that some bridal traditions have found their way to other special occasions that are very much romanticized as rites-of-passage by young women today.    

That is why we continue to see the trend of prom grandeur simply exploding!  This time of year, even before a gal knows who will escort her to this fabulous affair, the venue, gown and accessories are very much a focus of relentless searching and endless discussion!

Along with a stunning gown and gorgeous hair and makeup, the seemingly insignificant garter has become another “must-have” for the fully appointed prom goer and as with its bridal cousin, has become a keepsake as a reminder of happy memories and a magical night.  She may choose to give it to her date or, akin to the wedding reception tradition, participate in a “garter dance” as part of the prom festivities.

Whether she chooses a wild animal pattern, shimmering opulence or perhaps a silk garter in her school colors, gals heading to the prom these days are sure to wear a little something special accenting their perfect look!  Following this fabulous trend, our prom garter collection just gets more colorful and exciting with each season and we’d like to share a taste of some of our most popular looks!

Why Embroidery is Such a Time-Honored Treasure

Friday, March 14th, 2014

Ornate and elaborately embroidered clothing and domestic accessories have been a signature of wealth and status over many centuries and across many more cultures.  Embroidery skill and technique, requiring great practice and patience to acquire, has been passed on from generation to generation allowing for both the proliferation and continuity of this craft. 

While the vision of Great-Great Grandma painstakingly hand-working a lovely garment monogram is part of our shared heritage, we have to say that as with most things, industrialization has changed so much of our world.

Interestingly, the fundamental embroidery stitches of  800 AD and even earlier have changed little and are still used today – more often though by embroidery machines! 

While nothing can replace the labor of love shown in hand-embroidery, contemporary embroidery can reflect even more intricate designs and precision craftsmanship and mechanized embroidery allows for unique dimensional textures and designs within finished works. 

The beauty and significance of embroidery is still appreciated as an opulent finish for a garment or accessory.  Monogrammed garments and domestic goods remain symbols of elegance and refinement in many cultures.  A new monogram or date to commemorate an occasion brings both recognition and appreciation for the thoughtfulness of the gift as well as the intrinsic value of a future heirloom or keepsake.  

No matter by hand or machine, it seems clear that embroidery will continue to endure as a timeless and tasteful finish for garments and accessories.  Take a few minutes to browse some of our finest embroidered items.  High-quality thread and a gorgeous array of colors combine to adorn best sellers like our silk robes, plush towels and over-size oxford shirts with monograms and personalization for an exceptional, luxurious look!

Princess Bride Then and Now – The Royal Treatment!

Friday, February 28th, 2014

The ultimate romantic fantasy dreamt of by so many young ladies is that of being a “Princess Bride.”  While the history and influence of the “Princess Bride” can be traced back over centuries, we have only to look at the past two or three decades to see some of our more recent and utterly breathtaking princess bride style icons!  In 1991, a 25-foot train followed a beautiful bride to wed her prince in a lavish wedding ceremony that rekindled our love with princesses and their fairy tale nuptials.  Lady Diana Spencer truly won our hearts over on in just one special day and we will forever love her and her legacy!  

Two years later, singer/superstar Mariah Carey clearly influenced by a real-life princess wed just two years earlier, epitomized the look of a celebrity princess bride when she wed for the first time

 

and Mimi again chose an over-the-top princess look in 2008 when she renewed her vows to husband number two. 

Widely recognized as a truly epic style, today’s bride with an eye for the royal treatment will not be disappointed by her options ranging from invitations to reception favors, breathtaking ceremony venues, wedding destinations and honeymoons and of course, the all-important “Princess Gown” which will surely feature a stunning skirt flowing from an exquisite regal bodice! 

This is a time when every bride who chooses to do so, can live the life of a beautiful princess with all of the glitz and glamour, pageantry and ceremony due her as a royal!  However, there will be only a few fleeting hours spent in her opulent princess bridal gown so there is every reason for the princess bride to seek royal attire to compliment her look as she attends to her duties as a regal bride-to-be!

We’d like to share with you just a few of our princess bride’s favorite looks for keeping up that royal image wherever her day takes her!  

A soft, princess white, fairy tale “Enchanted Fairy Tale” hoodie!  

Our “Fairy Tale” font is an absolutely exquisite look fit for a princess on this custom Bride tank!  

Oh so pretty, hundreds of princess pink rhinestones fill this sparkling heart crowned with a gorgeous tiara!

Cinderella,  a beloved Fairy Tale Princess, would just love this Happily Ever After  sparkling design and so will you!

Share your message of an elegant, regal demeanor whenever things start to become just a bit hectic! 

 The perfect princess bling always starts with a crown or tiara here and there.  

This shimmering design includes a stunning removable crown brooch!  

 

 

Every princess knows the ultimate place to find her most favorite treasures!    This Tiffany-inspired design is great for her entire entourage!  

Of course, the princess will need the matching hoodie and pant set to keep her warm and cozy on those blustery days!

 

No princess nuptials would be complete without a bit of bling to commemorate her royal union!  

A grand personalized crown or elegant understated tiara would be fitting attire! 

Be sure to share your royal legacy for those little ladies who will someday walk in your steps!
