BHLDN (from the creatives behind Anthropologie) Sneak Peak – Part 2

I hope you enjoyed the first part of my BHLDN sneak peak! After the fashion show we were able to explore 4 rooms that they had designed with a bunch of the dresses, accessories and shoes – and we were even able to try them on! Yes, I found my new dream wedding dress – just need a reason to wear it, maybe a vow renewal??! :) Of course I loved all the BHLDN dresses – and lots of great special event dresses to wear for a wedding or for an anniversary party – but I was really super impressed + excited by all their gorgeous shoes! I LOVE LOVE the ones below (yep those are my feet!). The bows are made of vintage fabric and there are only 37 pairs made, another cool thing about a lot of their collection – a lot of the pieces will be made in limited quantities so you can still feel special and know that not everyone will be wearing your same dress or shoes. :)

How pretty are all these little vintage + romantic jackets? What a fun way to change your look throughout the wedding day.

I hope you guys enjoyed my sneak peak photos! And yes those are also my feet in the gorgeous gold hearted shoes – on my wish list too. :) Yesterday, was one of the most fun days I’ve had – it really was like a dream. The BHLDN site is launching Monday and will have all the dresses, shoes and accessories. It will also have a fun explore section where you can create moodboards from their line with photos of your venue space and flowers – such a great tool to share with your friends + family! Also, someone asked about a store – they are planning to open an actual store, but it won’t be until late 2011. I’d love to hear more about your thoughts on the collection – what are you most excited about?

  1. Great coverage of what must have been an idyllic opportunity! Thanks for sharing.

  2. Sooooo excited for Monday!!!! Can’t wait to see what they have for a beach wedding!

  3. Thank you for sharing your photos! I can’t wait until Monday to see all of the collection. I am trying to find bridesmaids dresses and I really hope they have something everyone will agree on!

    Oh and I love those green shoes!

  4. These are so whimsical and classy at the same time. I LOVE THESE! I wish I could rewind and buy something from this collection for my wedding.

    I think I’m going to have to drop by just to buy some dresses for weddings I may or may not attend in the near future.

  5. I have been counting down the days until this site launched ever since the announcement last year. I could only imagine what it was like to get a sneak peak INCLUDING getting to try on the gowns, HOW LUCKY! Can’t wait to see the entire collection on Monday! Now I know why the wedding gods have waited so long for me to get hitched – the wait will surely be worth it on Monday! Thanks for including us in your sneak peak!

  6. You LUCKY duck! How fun. My favorite thing of all … the green wedding shoes! I just discovered you blog … and i love it bc of everything, but mostly this post and the name of your blog. bc i wore green wedding shoes! and bc i’ve been counting down to see this line ever since the “what if anthro …” email came to me!

  7. Those little jackets (called “boleros” I think?) are fabulous. You are so lucky to have had a firsthand look!

  8. I love the white shoes!!!!!!! awesome!

  9. I cannot wait to see the bridemaid dresses and shoes!

  10. Oh my goodness, I want all of these shoes!

  11. Everything’s great looking but I have to admit my ultimate fave ARE the green shoes
    Thanks for sharing & giving us the sneak peak:)

  12. Gasp….love it all, hoping to be able to photograph a bride soon with one of these gorgeous dresses.

  13. Your BHLDN sneak peaks have been wonderful! Lovely photos and ultra pretty finds! Those “greeen wedding shoes” are perfection – love the feathery pieces too! ;)

  14. I LOVE this dresses, and this Melissa hearted shoes!
    The new collection, released last week, has a metallic red heart, gorgeous!!
    I’ll definitely use them at my wedding!
    Thank you for the sneak peak, i was really curious!!!! :)

  15. I already have a pair of shoes from Butter’s bridal line (Something Bleu), but seeing the pictures of a few other styles as me second guessing the pair I bought! The green ones and the gold ones with the bow from the studio pics are my favs. :)

  16. The mustard yellow dress!! how can I get it?!!?

  17. LOVE the flower petal shoes!!! (And I love the fact that you found GREEN wedding shoes Jen!)

  18. Eee! These are all SO amazing!! I can’t wait to see more.

  19. Jen these were 2 awesome posts, you have made the wait until Monday a little easier! And I spied a few things that looked familiar:) I can’t wait to see it all Valentines, what a good day it will be indeed.

  20. I certainly hope the dress pictured with the green, twisted-chain necklace is offered on the site. I think it might be the most beautiful thing I’ve ever seen, judging from the tiny window of that picture.

  21. I love everything! I can’t wait for the launch of the website on Monday. I am worried about ordering online though. I love anthropologie clothes, but I need to try everything on. Oh, and I love your white tights, so cute.

  22. Gorgeous! Thank you so much for sharing :) I can hardly wait or Monday! I am dying over the creamish dress with green detailing (the one with the quote, “dresses to wear in a wedding + to a wedding”). Seriously, a must have! Thanks again and have a wonderful weekend!

  23. i usually don’t get so excited about events like these, but this event really inspired me. How fab you got to go?

    I really love the decorations. When they will be available for purchase? thanks!

  24. Love all the the pictures and am so excited to hear about the shoes being covet-worthy. I am in the midst of wedding shoe shopping now and cannot find anything I like. I will be sure to check out the site on Monday!

  25. i LOVE the goodies on the BHLDN site… the feathers and ruffle details are so romantic. But the shoes with the hand-dyed flower petals on them are my ultimate fav!

  26. One of those dresses is EXACTLY what I have been envisioning for a wedding dress! I cannot wait to see the new site on Monday. Thank you for posting.

  27. I LOVE IT ALL! the green shoes are exactly what i want for my wedding in May. I can’t wait to see everything tomorrow!

  28. I just got engaged today… so excited for BHLDN… esp the short dresses! Perfect for the reception!

  29. What a fantastic opportunity! We really hope one of our brides in the near future will embrace the new BHLDN line. It will be fun to capture in photos!

  30. All these gorgeous vintage dresses and shoes would look great with an avant-garde, sculptural headpiece — the perfect contrast!
