We were instantly enamored when we received these images from Lauren Kinsey that she shot for the Spring 2014 Girl with a Serious Dream lookbook. We love the idea of a bride wearing something special, like these pieces from Girl with a Serious Dream, before or after her wedding. The getting ready attire also acts as an heirloom for such a special and cherished day. Being able to wear a delicate lingerie piece long after the wedding is a small yet lovely reminder of that special day. How nice would it be to wear something again that makes you feel just as special as you do when you walk down the aisle?

I am offended that a “Girl With a Serious Dream” is related to fancy underwear. This name trivializes women’s real life goals. We have come such a long way in the women’s movement, and this name pushes women back decades. Granted, the pieces are pretty, but why such a thoughtless name? I don’t think I would have highlighted this company in a post.

We’re sorry that you felt offended by the post. “Girl with a Serious Dream” was named after creator, Anita, chased her dreams to start her own company. We admire that she has found success and her place in the professional world and that her pieces are designed and crafted in the USA. You can read more about why she named her company what she did here: http://www.girlwithaseriousdream.com/about

WOW! What a stunning and bold set of pictures. Whatever filter the photographer used, it really makes that red hair pop against the backdrop.

Featured Simple Wedding Inspiration from Nature

We always think the most beautiful inspiration for weddings comes from nature. After all, Mother Nature has done a wonderful job, hasn't she? In today's featured editorial, the creative team elected to work with a very simple, pared-down palette of green and brown, both usually found as the base colors in nature. Highlighting the beauty of these natural tones caused them to push the bounds of their creativity, resulting in a beautiful combination of simple, natural designs with a modern aesthetic.
