Bridal Style – County Fair for


August 5, 2013

County Fairs are quintessential summer events. From deep-fried Oreos to prize winning pigs, communities gather together each summer to celebrate fun, food, and one another. Channel this fantastic fair energy into your summer nuptials! Winifred Bean’s Tulipe gown epitomizes vintage beauty with elegant chiffon and sweetly draping sleeves that can be worn on the shoulders or loosely over your arms. Accessorize with vibrant colors to add a touch of whimsy to your look: bright red poppies make a bouquet pop and a swipe of hot magenta over your lips brings a balance of pretty and daring to your bridal style. A multi-colored jewel necklace adds glamour while a delicate feather hair piece ties together a vintage country look. As a final touch, slip on your ruby red slippers: Red suede Mary Jane pumps add a vibrant splash of color to your Country Fair look.

Austin Bridal Style for


July 15, 2013

Winifred Bean is heading west, ya’ll! Now through the end of July, designer Angela Curanaj will be holding at-home try-ons for brides in Dallas and Austin. In honor of Angela returning to her Texas roots, this Weekly Wedding Look explores the innovative beauty of brides in Austin.

To represent their unique style, Austinites have adopted the unofficial slogan “Keep Austin Weird.” Austin brides aren’t weird by any means, but they do embody the creative beauty of their city. With a sexy corset beneath lovely chiffon, Winifred Bean’s Daisy gown is perfect for a classic bride in an indie setting. Southwest-inspired accessories pair perfectly with timeless ivory chiffon: Turquoise earrings, a sparkle-accented manicure, and two-toned sunglasses for a touch of post-ceremony cool. Her groom gives a nod to Texas’s rough-and-tumble past with locally designed Helm boots—a handsome combination of denim and leather—while the Austin bride completes her look with soft, mint green suede heels.
