{blue satin sashes}


Completely fell in love with this photograph of Jen Gotch‘s whirlwind trip to Vegas — the lacy strapless dress with blue satin sash and matching shoes are just perfect and très romantic.

Carla Bruni was said to have worn a sleeveless, knee-length Hermès dress with a 10 cm-wide marine blue ribbon for her wedding to French President Nicolas Sarkozy. {Unfortunately, since no photographers or press were allowed at the “secret” ceremony, we may never see the dress, but Carla was described as ravishing by Francois Lebel, the mayor of the 8th district of Paris, who officiated their marriage.}

Above, the image that began my love for white dresses with blue satin sashes, Sarah Humphreys, from the final issue of Blueprint {January/February 2008}.
