Power Handbags

7 power handbags to slay your work wardrobe this spring!

A woman with a power handbag can rule the world. Or, at the very least, feel like she can — which is half the battle. I love to carry a power handbag anytime I travel, rush to a meeting or even network over coffee. They’re almost always satchels, and a bit larger in size so they can hold that all-important laptop. Whether you opt for a neutral shade or statement color, your power handbag should be sleek, bold and represent your personal style. Here’s a look at a few of my favs:

Mismatched Bridesmaid Dresses: Gold and Champagne

Tips from a bride on how to pull off the mismatched bridesmaid dress trend

The days of traditional, matching dresses for your bridal party are fleeting. Mismatching bridesmaid dresses are taking over the wedding world. And I’m here to say – Amen!

Let’s face it. The typical bridal party comes in all shapes, sizes, styles and personalities. Rarely does one dress match each bridesmaids’ taste. By allowing each bridesmaid to select a dress that fits her body type and style – you can ensure she’ll be comfortable and confident on your big day. (Read: There’s officially no excuse for her to not get out there on the dance floor!)

With wedding season on the horizon, we’re kicking off a new series that will feature mismatched bridesmaid dresses, shoes and accessories. You’d be amazed at the variety of dresses we carry. (As a recent bride, I can personally attest that the majority of my bridesmaids found their dresses at – you guessed it – Bon-Ton. Keep reading, I’ll share details later.)

One of the hottest bridesmaid dress trends this season is a mix of gold and champagne bridesmaid dresses. We selected and styled six of our favorite dresses to show you how they could fit together to make the perfectly coordinated bridal party.

How My Bridesmaids Wore the Mismatched Dresses Trend

Mismatched Gold and Champagne Bridesmaid Dresses

On a gorgeous sunny day last July, I said “I do” to the man of my dreams. Everything about the day was perfect. I had my best friends by my side and every last detail went off without a hitch.

From the moment Spencer proposed, I knew that my bridesmaids would play a major role in our big day. They have been my wing women, my cheerleaders and my partners in crime throughout all of life’s ups and downs – and on my wedding day I wouldn’t have it any other way.

Having been in several weddings myself, I know that bridesmaid dresses can be quite a big investment. It was important to me that my bridesmaids got their money’s worth. But more than anything, I wanted my bridesmaids to feel comfortable and confident in their dresses. Each of them has such a unique personality and style, I wanted their dresses to match their tastes. With these things in mind, I opted to have each bridesmaid select their own dress.

5 Tips for Coordinating Mismatched Bridesmaid Dresses

  1. Start with a color palette. (Some things to consider when putting together your color palette: The time of year, venue, dress, flowers, skin tone.) My color palette wasn’t exclusively champagne and gold. I also included hints of mint and sage. Champagne and Neutral Wedding Color Palette Continue reading →
