Grace Kelly and Prince Rainier

Hooray for Fridays!  We hope you have had a great week…  We definitely have had a busy week, but busy in a great way.  We packed up Lazaro’s amazing trunk show.   We have been meeting many newly engaged brides!  And we have been preparing for today and tomorrow’s Monique Lhuillier Fall 2013 Collection trunk show!  Ladies, this collection is DIVINE… But while prepping Monique’s collection, here at the shop, we have been talking about elegant, beautiful, timeless brides, and the one that keeps coming up is Princess Grace!   Doesn’t Grace Kelly look so elegant and beautiful yet at ease in the picture above?   Love the happiness!

Rapture, Opulence, Fantasy… although these adjectives seem to have been taken out of Marie Antoinette’s fabulous biography, these are actually some of the names of Monique Lhuillier’s gowns from her new Fall 2013 collection!  And the names are only the tip of the iceberg as to how beautiful, elegant, romantic and simply, breathtaking this collection is!

But do you know what is even more fabulous?  This weekend we are holding our very first Monique Lhuillier trunk show of 2013 and we couldn’t be happier! Don’t miss out on this exclusive look at the collection, Jan 11 and Jan 12 at Chic Parisien in Coral Gables. We are certain you will fall in love with this amazing collection.  For details, click here!

Below is a sneak peak of some of our favorites… do you have any favorites?

Bride Mary

Yay for Downton Abbey!  After many, many, many months of Downton Abbey withdrawals… finally, it is back; and just on what we saw last night, it seems like it is going to be better than ever!  The wedding between Mary and Matthew, simply: PERFECT!   And this quote… beyond PERFECT!

Matthew Crawley:  You came. To be honest, I wasn’t completely sure you would.

Lady Mary: I’m glad to hear it. I should hate to be predictable.

Are you watching?  Anything special you want to see this season?
