Golden Girls....Pageant Edition

Still searching for the perfect dress for the upcoming 2017/2018 Pageant Season? We've got it!  We love pulling inspo from popular pageants like Miss USA and Miss Universe.  Here are some of our favorite looks we've recreated with gowns you can find at The White Room.

Our first look is inspired by Miss USA 2017, Kara McCullough!!  We love this simple skirt paired with the beaded halter neckline.  To gain this look, we chose this halter Sherri Hill with an equally simple skirt.  Sometimes less is more!!

Our next look is inspired by the second runner up in the Miss Universe 2017 pageant, Andrea Tovar. We are UHbsessed with the ruffles and intricate beading covering the gown. The gown we chose to recreate this look is a gold, two-piece number by Sherri Hill with iridescent beading to give it a subtle sparkle. You would definitely win first place in this one. ;)

The third look we have for you comes from the first runner up, Raquel Pelissier, from Miss Universe 2017. It’s obvious why she made it to top two – LOOK AT THAT GOWN! We are dying over the detailed beading, turtle neck, and front keyhole. We chose another Sherri Hill gown that has beautiful detailed beading to showcase your curves, and while it doesn’t have a high neck, it’s still sure to be a showstopper!

Our fourth and final look is brought to you by none other than Miss Universe 2017 herself, Iris Mittenaere, representing France. Long sleeves are always a winner in our book, and clearly the judges thought so, too. Rounding out our dupe looks is this gold sequin stunner. You already know our love for long sleeves, so we don’t need to tell you how much we love this gown! Your future will shine as bright as the sequins on this one!!

Whether you’re looking for these mock looks or something unique to you, we would love to help you find the perfect gown to take the crown. ♥

Leaving a Little Sparkle Wherever You Go

The wait is finally over!  The sequined bridesmaid's gowns have arrived at The White Room!! We just want to take a moment and praise the glitter gods for these Sorella Vita, Bill Levkoff, and Christina Wu bridesmaids' dresses.  

These gowns give just enough sparkle to highlight the bride's beauty and any color palette!  With metallic hues from moody blue and black to our forever loved rosy pink and shimmering gold, these colors compliment any season.  Not only are the color choices stunning, but the different styles they come in are so unique!

Select a midi-length tank style, a front- gathered low-v neckline, a blouson design with delicate straps, or an amazing back view with a low cowl neck and cap sleeves.  These dresses give a pinch of glamour, a touch of sophistication, and end in a sparkling "I Do."

Call to schedule your appointment to shop with us today!!  

To Veil or Not to Veil...That is the Question

Once a bride has found her gown, there is always the question of whether she will wear a veil or not. Depending on the bride and her preferences, veil styles/lengths can vary from cathedral to birdcage, and everything in between.  

Embellishments throughout or along the edge can help add the finishing touch to any wedding gown.   However, veils are not the only way to make a statement.  Today's bride is looking for unique options that helps her achieve the bridal look with simply a headpiece or hair decoration.  Pearls and crystals mix together to create a perfect sparkle that compliments and completes our bride for her wedding day.  

Headbands, combs, and flower crowns have made their statement in the bridal world and we do not anticipate their departure any time soon.

Diamonds are a Girls Best Friend..

Finding the perfect gown is only the first step in your gown shopping process.  Now you have to think about another very important factor….accessories!

We are absolutely enamored with accessories and how a little styling can transform any look into your dream wedding style. From cinching your waist with a fabulous beaded belt to accenting your neckline with a boho headband or vintage-inspired necklace.   Accessories add that perfect finishing touch!  

Any bridal gown can be rustic or glam depending on what shoe you choose to wear. Cowboy boots, jeweled heels, or simple ballet flats…every shoe sets a different tone!  Maybe you want a non-traditional look? Easy fix!  Add a jeweled headpiece in your hair instead of a veil and you’re set!   It’s all in the styling and we are the experts!  Let us help you find the perfect look!

Simple & Elegant

Simple and Elegant wins our hearts!!  How stunning is this gown???  I can see it now with the perfect family heirloom added-- grandmother's pearls, mom's veil.  The possibilities are endless.  Did I mention the train is detachable?  Yes!  You can take the train off to greet your guests and dance the night away.   Sophistication at its finest!

2016 is the year of elegance!  Pair this gown with classic black and white bridesmaids, classic tuxedo and bow ties and BOOM!!  Your wedding will be one for the books!

PEPLUM, PEPLUM, PEPLUM!!!

The peplum is very much in style and for good reason! Peplum dresses are amazing at disguising a single dress as being a very stylish looking two piece! They are super flattering in all the right places and the short knee-length adds the perfect amount of a modern spin on a classic look!

A Whole New World!

Join us on a magic carpet ride as we escape away from our daily duties to focus on and fall in love with the sexy, yet classy looks modeled by Aladdin’s intriguingly alluring princess Jasmine in part three of our Disney princess inspired looks!

This princess is full of pizzazz, spice, and beauty all mixed into one! She is both beautiful and adventurous, which are two things we absolutely LOVE in a dress!

To capture the majestic looks she rocks you have many options, one of them being a classy, yet sassy, dual piece! Whether it is a separate top with a detached skirt, or a jumper with an attachable cover-up; feel free to show a little skin, (tastefully, of course!)

Now, this is the type of girl that likes to keep it simple but also change it up… with color! She sports a classic look in aqua, purple, and even a vixen red! By using any of these colors as a base you can begin to create your perfect Jasmine inspired look!

One other very important factor in this Arabian princess’s wardrobe is that she almost always appears with a head piece and the most elegant jewelry, so feel free to accessorize and don’t be afraid to rock some extra bling!

 Stop by today or call to make an appointment and visit with one of our erudite consultants to help you try on and let your heart decide which dress is equal parts of princess Jasmine and you!
