Valentine’s day…you either love it or hate it. I wonder if anyone even realized it is almost Valentine’s day with the release of the 50 Shades of Grey movie coming up and all. Also the Magic Mike XXL trailer is out and my female Facebook friends have been spamming my newsfeed with ‘OMG Tiffany, Mindy, Rita and Adam, let’s go! #MUSTSEE #CHANNINGTATUM. True story: I went to the first Magic Mike movie with my mother thinking it was a romantic comedy – mother daughter bonding type of film…it really wasn’t…another true story is that I am afraid of male strippers (don’t ask) although Channing Tatum is always welcome to dance in my living room!
From raunchy back to Valentine’s day romance…I just realized that there are also downsides to blogging for The Fashion Orientalist…let me explain. After seeing all the fairytale style designer bridal and couture collections I am not sure I am still capable of settling for a ‘normal’ wedding dress. I am a girly girl and often research my favorite bridal designers to see what their prices are and realized I might have to win the lottery to be able to afford my dream dress…or buy one on sale…from a few seasons back… Not that I am getting married any time soon, which means I still got time to set up an extra savings account to save up for couture (don’t tell my boyfriend). The Fashion Orientalist spoiled me.
You might have guessed what type of collection I am featuring today…bridal and couture!
Whenever Siddartha Tytler’s name pops up on my Facebook newsfeed I always think back to the first time I featured a collection of his on my blog which included this dress. As a lover of rock music, this edgy look is one of my all time favorite designer pieces. Then recently I found out about Siddartha’s latest bridal and couture collections and was blown away by the beauty of the designs. My favorite pieces (featured in the gallery) include a stunning red gown with floral embroidery (WOW) and two edgy black and gold looks.
I am not going to say much more about this collection as the images do all the talking, but I will leave you with a fun quote from the designer.
“The ideal Siddartha Tytler patron is one who is very confident, independent and
doesn’t allow others to dictate his or her fashion choices. It is someone who is comfortable in their
own skin and can make a mark with their personality every single time.”
