New Additions to the Site

We’ve reconfigured our site so that future additions to our Custom Couture can be done in a simpler and faster fashion. We’re excited to formally introduce our Short Sleeved Top and ¾ Length Sleeve Top. We'd received a ton of requests to make some tops that had a little more coverage and we've produced these tops with those requests in mind. The shawls aren’t looking too pretty on the sleeved tops at the moment, but we’re working on that.

We’ve also added purple/violet to our charmeuse color family as a stock color. Based on requests we’ve received over the past two months, purple is a very popular dress color.

We’ve also gotten around to adding a lot more testimonials and have decided to automate this system so that your “kind words” can be shared much faster.

We’re now looking to add a few dresses inspired from the recent Golden Globes awards. At the moment, we’re admiring the dresses worn by Jennifer Hudson, Angelina Jolie and Penelope Cruz. If there’s anything you were particularly fond of, we’d love to hear from you.

Is that Tiffany Blue? No, it’s Ashley Blue

These pictures were sent to us from one of our all-time favorite customers, Ashley, who has to be one of the sweetest people on this planet. Ashley was one of the first customers we had that sourced a non-stock color with us back in June. She had wanted a very light blue satin for her wedding dress and we were lucky enough to be able to source it for her. She chose Chocolate Charmeuse for her bridesmaids. We found it fun to simply name colors after customers once we sourced it for them - - - sort of an homage to those who trusted us to get the right color for their wedding. Lately, people have been asking whether we have any “Tiffany Blue”. We’ll send them a swatch and advise that the color is properly known in these parts as “Ashley Blue”. We're wondering if one day someone will walk out of Tiffany’s with a box and someone will say it looks just like Coco Myles' Ashley Blue.
