    Take a step back and WHOA

    I have been in this industry for 10 years now, opened Adore almost 6 years ago.  It takes a lot for me to get stopped in my tracks when I am walking the aisles at market.  Now don’t get me wrong, I LOVE going to market.  It is exhausting and exhilarating all at the same time. I love to see what designers are forecasting as the trends that will be beginning, flourishing and dying in the next 6 months.  I love tracking whether they are spot on or if I think they are missing something.  It is this perfect blend for me of creativity and analytical thinking.  But when we walked past this designer’s booth in Chicago, this dress made me stop in my tracks.

    Let me explain to you why.  I have learned over the years that you don’t just look for the wow dress, but you look for the dress that has all the details that come together to make it a wow dress and this has just that.

    There are these beautiful lace appliques that cascade down into the skirt.


    Then, there is this hand beaded top alternating crystals and pearls throughout the bodice on the illusion front and back.


    Not to mention the side cut outs on the bodice.


    And yes, this entire second layer of a sequin tulle that gives the ENTIRE dress an incredible subtle shimmer every time you move and the light catches you just right.


    And then I saw all the other things the company had to offer and I fell in love with the details of the company.  They push the boundaries on some dresses creating sheer parts that people might not expect.  Like the skirt on this gown.  From the knees down it is sheer!


    But they will custom change about anything to make it truly your unique gown (without charging an arm and a leg!)  In fact, they will line ANYTHING that is sheer for no additional charge.  This is seemingly unheard of in this industry!  They truly want the bride to have not only her perfect gown but the gown that is uniquely hers as well.

    All the deets

    So here is the short version of what you need to know about the Evelyn line.

    1. You won’t find another store within 125 miles of Adore that carries them….how cool is that?!?!
    2. Their price point is $1100-1900 (with most being $1500 or less!) Heck yes!
    3. We are hosting a trunk show November 4-11th which means we will have the ENTIRE collection in the store for us to drool over and you to find your perfect dress, AND they will be 15% off for that week only. Oh man, oh man, oh man!
    4. The custom options are endless and we can’t wait to help you design yours into something that is just like “ahhhhhh” (sang like the heavenly angel choir above)

    What’s next?

    Now don’t just hang out and wait for November, yes, you can come see them now so let us know if you are falling head over heels with one of these gowns for your big day and we will make the magic happen!

    Last three
