Kristin Reveles came to us looking for a formal gown for her step-son's wedding in Guanajuato, Mexico. She came to us with a general color palate that the bride requested her to wear and we started trying on styles....


“Dressing up is one of my favorite things to do for events and sometimes I may over do it but I always say it’s best to be over dressed then under dressed for an occasion." Kristin Reveles


Finding the perfect silhouette....


Sure, the color was a great starting point, and one that many end up starting out with, but where do you go from there? Of course, every body is so different but we truly believe that there is a gown for every woman with any kind of body type. With Kristin, she naturally doesn't have a lot of curves besides her bust so in order to make them, we put her in a mermaid gown that gives her the illusion that she does have them. That's what its really about in the end, is accentuating what you love about yourself and then creating the look that you want, to make it really work for you.

How do you know what is too formal?

Kristin believes that it's proper etiquette at an event that specifies formal-attire on the invite, that you do wear a long gown. The type of gown you wear will depend on where the venue is going to be and what season of the year it is. If it's more of a summer, outside beach venue, then we would suggest a light and flowy chiffon gown but if it's more of an inside winter ballroom venue, then you can go with more of a fitted or beaded gown. Like Kristin says, it's always better to come a little overdressed than wanting to hide in your car wearing your jeans and tee!
