The 2014 Holiday Gift Guide from ModCloth + a December Wedding

I know I don't usually post on Sunday but I've been designing away for my daughter's 8th birthday and wanted to take a little break to look thru The 2014 Holiday Gift Guide from ModCloth. The design of this guide is beautiful with the pretty gold ornaments that let you select the category to browse thru including: trendsetters' picks, vintage inspired finds, party style, treats under $20 and much more. There's even Free Printable Gift Tags {in pink - my favorite color}.

I saw the Essential Elegance Skirt in Black and I'm thinking this might work for a wedding I'm headed to in December. It's a great length and would look cute with a dressy tank and a red crop cardigan. The plaid heels {The Only Galaxy for Me Heel in Student} would look super cute too as I think they're very Christmas like and with a wedding just before the holidays, I could even wear these again for Christmas.

I've already attended the bridal shower - but I certainly wish I had seen these adorable Scoops of Flower Measuring Spoons beforehand. They would have been perfect as the bride-to-be does a lot of baking. They're the perfect gift and what a conversation piece.

What are your favorites from the Gift Guide?

Help Name this Celia Grace Wedding Dress {from the 2015 collection}

Is there a woman from history or present day who inspires you?

Celia Grace Eco and Fair Trade Wedding Dresses has just released their 2015 collection and founder, Marcelia, is looking for help naming one of her stunning new dress styles.

If you aren't familiar with Celia Grace, this is a wedding dress line that connects women around the world so they can help each other. Women in the US and Europe help seamstresses in India and Cambodia earn respect and a living wage so they can better themselves, their families, and their communities. As a result, the Celia Grace seamstresses help brides have even more beautiful, joyful, and meaningful weddings.

By naming each dress after an inspiring woman, Celia Grace continues this cycle of building positive connections between women around the world.  Last year’s dress names included Amelia (Earhart, pilot), Rachel (Carson, environmentalist), Susan (B. Anthony, abolitionist), Eleanor (Roosevelt, humanitarian), Rosa (Parks, civil rights activist), Eileen (Collins, astronaut), and Marie (Curie, scientist).

Now, it's our turn. What we need to do is brainstorm as many inspiring women as possible after whom this dress can be named. Public figures (past or present) are best but all suggestions are welcome.

The 2015 Celia Grace Wedding Dress Collection features fine silks and vintage-inspired laces, illusion necklines, keyhole backs and a few dresses that convert from long to short and two organically-dyed pink dresses. Today we will be thinking of a name for the 1503/1510 dress which is absolutely stunning together to be worn long for the ceremony and then short for the reception. Or, maybe even after the wedding? Wouldn't it be amazing to have a wedding dress that could be worn again after the big day? Below is a description of the two dress{es} and I have a few suggested names to get you started thinking of what we could name this special wedding dress.
Love the flirty 1503 dress but want to wear it long . . . and short?
This beautifully full A-line skirt of layered soft tulle over crisp silk taffeta with a bow tie back opening is perfect to transform your short dress into a long gown. A delicate beaded waistband adds allure and hidden pockets add desired utility to this already standout skirt. It's nylon tulle and eco silk taffeta in white.
This sweetheart strapless stunner is feminine, flawless and flirty. Tiny Swarovski crystals adorn the heirloom silk, deep sweetheart bodice. The crystals are layered under silk chiffon to let off a gentle sparkle that fades into the high-low skirt. This dress stands beautifully alone or can be paired with the 1510 Princess Skirt. Is heirloom silk and silk chiffon in white.

What inspirational lady do you think this Celia Grace wedding dress should be named after? Here are my suggested names for this dress . . .

Helena {Rubinstein} - she "formed one of the world’s first cosmetic companies. Her business enterprise proved immensely successful and later in life she used her enormous wealth to support charitable enterprises in the field of education, art and health."

Arabella {Mansfield} - "the first woman to be admitted to the bar in the United States"

Juliette {Low} - "the founder of the Girl Scouts of America"

Now, it's your turn - please leave your name suggestion{s} in the comments and Marcelia will look them all over and I'll report back to you with the winning name :)
