Wedding Wednesday: Fall 2013 Couture

Tuesday, July 09, 2013

One thing I set out to do when I started my blog was to bring you the best of the modest straight off the runways. I wanted to prove to you all that there are so, so many, great looks curated by the best designers, that are more about gorgeous fashion design than showing off body parts.

Sifting through the Fall 2013 Couture looks brought back that tingly feeling and the high I love from experiencing crazy creativity in fashion. It reminded me of the time when I was obsessed with designing my own line of clothes inspired by the well crafted runway looks, but in more wearable and affordable versions. 

I wish I could do it all. If an endless bankroll and a team of creative assistants appeared magically, I would bring you the line of your dreams...but alas, I will leave that to all of the fabulous people out there working on their new lines as we speak. (As of the last few months I've met at least 3 talented friends who are currently designing some fabulous clothes!)

Meanwhile, enjoy these lavish looks and get inspired for your next evening event or wedding.

So what's in for Fall formal wear? The deep and the bold. Blushes and blues. Shades of brown. And a splash of ravishing red. Which ones are your favorite looks?
