This is without a doubt one of the hardest decisions I've so far in my life been faced with. I don't want any of the typical cheesy love songs that are endlessly played at weddings but something unique yet still having a special feeling to it.
We've had ideas but nothing that sticks. He wants and thinks we are using an Alicia Keys song but to be perfectly honest, she is being so overplayed at the moment that she is driving me crazy and that is not how I want to feel at my wedding.
So for now I have no song but I will keep you posted... Any ideas are welcome!
So... here are some highlights from New York. I'd be here forever if I named everything I like but I particularly like the collections by Ralph Lauren and Badgley Mischka. I was also quite pleasantly surprised by The Row (The Olsen Twins line).

Two designs from the same designer and from the same show and yet they couldn't be more different. This is why Badgeley Mischka immediately caught my eye, I love designers who can create such a variety of looks in one collection. The dress I can instantly imagine appearing on a Red Carpet at some stage in the near future.

What I love about Ralph Lauren's new collection is that it is different from anything I've seen from him. He has a bohemian feel about it mixed with a hint of romanticism. I love the layered look he's created and the use of different materials.

To be honest I've never really liked Mary Kate and Ashley but then again I can't fault their sense in fashion. Yes I know they have made huge mistakes more than most but when they put their minds to it, it can be great.
I really loved their designs for their label The Row. I loved the simplicity of them and yet they managed to maintain a certain edge to them.
