Shoe In Love… http://www.bohobride.co.uk/wedding-style/shoe-in-love.html http://www.bohobride.co.uk/wedding-style/shoe-in-love.html#comments Fri, 27 Jan 2012 06:00:44 +0000 http://www.bohobride.co.uk/?p=5686

Happy Friday! I’ve spent a good few hours lusting after heels – I guess in response to the fact that my feet are swollen and I’ve been wearing flats for what feels like forever…all for the best cause of course! Never-the-less, I’d like to think my hubby might have taken the hint & will be presenting me with a pretty pair of heels once our baby blue is born – for now, I’ll just keep dreaming.

Whilst on the hunt for the perfect pair of neautral coloured shoes, I came across some stunning heels in the bridal section of NET-A-PORTER  and just had to share…

 

I can imagine a city bride in a shorter length frock wearing the beautiful Alexander Mcqueen Resin Leaf Peep-Toes and for simple yet chic, the Miu Miu Satin Platform Pumps are right on the money! Swoon

With Love,

Sarah, Boho Bride xx

Happy Friday Lovelies!

It’s been a tough week at Boho HQ – mainly due to my pesky hormones causing a perminant state of upset…I literally haven’t stopped crying for the last two days – for no other reason than my body needed too!!! Oh if you could have seen me…typing and crying, then laughing at myself, then crying again…Anyhoo – I digress. All is well again and we are excited to be having our 20 week scan this morning. Happy days indeed.

My new obsession – sparkle! I don’t know if it’s the wintry weather and impending festivities, but I can’t get enough of bling – so for all you winter Brides out there or for those reading who enjoy the idea of a little frosting us much as I do, here’s some sparkly shoes ♥

Where to buy: KG Enid Glitter Dancing Shoe; Glitter Cross Over Strap Platform; Nine West Kaboose Sequinned Heart; Dune Whirl D Platform Peep Toe Court

With Love,

Sarah, Boho Bride xx

Maidenform Easy-Up Strapless Bodybriefer Review http://www.bohobride.co.uk/wedding-style/maidenform-easy-up-strapless-bodybriefer-review.html http://www.bohobride.co.uk/wedding-style/maidenform-easy-up-strapless-bodybriefer-review.html#comments Thu, 04 Aug 2011 05:00:15 +0000 http://www.bohobride.co.uk/?p=3897

Retaining my integrity is very important to me when writing this blog, which is why I do not accept sponsored posts  as I prefer to be approached by companies and individuals and given the freedom to decide whether I like/believe-in/or am comfortable with publishing their business or product on here.

So me writing a review for Maidenform and their Easy-up Body Briefer must immediately tell you something – I like it. The kind ladies at Maidenform’s PR company took the time to contact me to find out my size and kindly sent me the garment to try out at home. I’ve worn it a couple of times now, so I’ve really got to know their Body Briefer quite well…

Maidenform’s aim is for it be a piece of shape-wear used by Brides under their wedding gowns, so one of the first things that I was slightly sceptical of, was the quality of the fabric; to merely glance at a picture, you might think it was made of the same utilitarian-looking material you see used for many of these garments, not so. This item is made up of lots of different kinds of fabrics, all of which are smooth to touch and really quite sexy.

There’s a more lightweight material on the rear (rather like a see-through swimsuit) reinforced by a bra like structure above, which leaves a tantalising flash of skin. My other half loved it from the back – he said it looked like a “kinky but comfy” piece of underwear.

The front is boned – like a basque; perfect for holding in a tummy full of wedding cake! However, what really won me over was how much it smoothed down my soft, fleshy hips – this instantly made me feel like I’d lost inches. The Body Briefer has soft foam cups, which are under-wired and comfortable, giving you lift without getting into Playboy Bunny territory.

Perhaps my biggest surprise was the clasp at the bottom (you know, underneath) which sits comfortably on your pubic bone, rather than hiked up in your intimates. Muuuch nicer than the weird popper shaped in-print you get from eighties style bodysuits *ouch*

All in all, I think its a good buy. Practical yet sexy, if your wearing a form-fitted wedding gown like me, the Maidenform Easy-Up  Strapless Bodybriefer will lift your confidence as well as your *ahem*other parts. To find out more about their other shape-wear garments, visit the Maidenform website.

Alternative Bridal Jackets and Cover-Ups http://www.bohobride.co.uk/wedding-style/alternative-bridal-jackets-and-cover-ups.html http://www.bohobride.co.uk/wedding-style/alternative-bridal-jackets-and-cover-ups.html#comments Fri, 22 Jul 2011 05:00:00 +0000 http://www.bohobride.co.uk/?p=3736

I really feel the cold and with skin so pale I’m already quite blue, it’s pretty clear a bridal jacket, coat, cardie is needed to keep me warm at our wedding reception. Over the last year I’ve oogled many a Bride wearing a funky coat or stole and with a lack of luck on Ebay (yes, there’s been a fair few bidding wars this week) I have turned my attention toward what the high street has to offer. Here’s what I found…

Top L-R: Oyster Crepe Unstructured Jacket from Topshop; Cream Beaded Jacket from Miss Selfridge; Leather Sequin Jacket from Warehouse; Embellished Jacket, Warehouse.

Happy weekend! With Love, Boho Bride xx

I was having a gander at the uber talented Madeline Isaac James website, when I spotted what looked like a fantastic ‘homage’ to the Marchesa dress Sienna Miller wore to the Oscars a couple of years ago…
Offering Grecian style to great aplomb, the Michelle dress is part of the Platinum Collection.

For those of you who aren’t familiar with Madelaine Isaac James, she is famed not only for her incredible yet affordable frocks, but she also creates amazing maternity bridal dresses – an absolute must-look for expectant brides-to-be!
