Introducing Gracy Luxe :: Gracylu Originals Couture Bridal Line!!!

Happy Friday, Lovelies!  The weekend is finally beginning!  Back in 2010 we fell head over heels in love with Gracylu Originals’ GORGEOUS headpieces and sashes.  (You can see our previous post about Gracylu Originals by clicking here.)  And just when we thought we couldn’t love Tristan’s (founder of Gracylu Originals) pieces more…  She has now expanded her brand and created an absolutely stunning couture bridal line named Gracy Luxe! OH. MY. GOODNESS…. We just about died when we saw her new pieces, which include but are not limited to:  Hair fascinators, bolero jackets, blushers and veils.  She also creates custom ordres as well.  So, without further ado, we are so excited to introduce you to Gracy Luxe!

“Hello friends!

 Welcome to my brand new online home, Gracy Luxe! I’m thrilled you’re here and hope you’ll feel as cozy here as I do.2012 has brought some amazing changes to my life and business – and as I reign in my focus on what’s truly important (my faith & my family), the next path of my journey has become incredibly clear: GracyLu Originals is growing up. She’s been my baby in every sense of the word and I thank you all for your constant love and support of this little business of mine. The time has come however for an evolution. GracyLu is every so gracefully stepping aside to allow her gorgeous ‘older sister’ to step in.So please join me in warmly welcoming Gracy Luxe to the family! She’s older and wiser, full of wisdom and romance. She harbors elegance and whimsy, she hasabsolutely and completely stolen my heart.With my focus shifting to not only include but put my family first, I knew some change was in order. When GracyLu Originals was born I had no idea the vast places it would take me and the sheer amount of time and energy and love that would go into it. In order to continue to flourish, I decided Gracy Luxe needed a team.
A team of ‘siblings’ if you will that together create the whole of the family. These talented artists from far and wide stand by my side, ensuring you see gorgeous photos, a beautiful web site, and of course the loveliest of products.I am beyond excited to venture into this new line, and look so forward to you, my friends, joining me. Stay tuned in the days and weeks ahead as I introduce Gracy Luxe to you all. Until then, bookmark and visit often!
 
Lots of love, T”

GSS’s Things We LOVE :: Mignonne Handmade Accessories!!!

We stumbled upon Mignonne handmade’s accessories on Etsy and were absolutely blown away!  Mignonne handmade makes all kinds of gorgeous accessories (headbands, hats, hair clips, boutonnieres, bouquets, necklaces, and earrings… to name a few!)  from silk and natural fabrics as well as various vintage bits.  You have got to check them out.  Seriously.  Do. It.  NOW!

Here’s a little bit about Mignonne handmade from their Etsy profile:

“Jenn Wood, owner and designer of Mignonne handmade, graduated from Temple University in 2000 with a degree in Art History. After working for a prominent local antiques dealer for a short time after graduating, she began to intern at a local flower shop and fell in love with the art of floral design. She continued on this path after a 2003 move to Phoenix, AZ and has been a small business owner since 2005. Jolie jour flowers caters to smaller creative weddings in the Phoenix area and incorporates eco-friendly flowers in real and handmade forms.

Mignonne handmade was born out of a love for embellishment, deorative forms and above all pretty things. The asethetic combines handmade flowers with vintage pieces and a dash of whimsy. Things that inspire Mignonne handmade creations are nature, films, fashion, art, French vintage, cooking, books and bygone eras. Each piece is created with care and love for you to enjoy toujours.”

GSS’s Things We LOVE :: Gracylu Originals Headpieces!!!

We were contacted by the Oh-So-Sweet AND beautiful Tristian of Gracylu Originals a few months ago.  She had heard about GSS and wanted to introduce herself.  We were absolutely blown away by Tristian’s pure talent!  Her pieces are so unbelievably gorgeous and stunning!  We have truly enjoyed getting to know and working with Tristian!  So, we are beyond excited to introduce you to Gracylu Originals!!!

Here is a little bit about Tristian and her company, Gracylu Originals from her website:

Tristian, the inspiring designer of Gracylu Originals, has joyfully been married to her high school sweetheart for seven years. They have two precious children, a handsome boy and a darling girl. The love of her business is due to the unique product she offers her clients as well as the reality that the business provides her with a platform of ministry to express her faith. Gracylu Originals was established two years ago when Tristian began her adventure as innovator and couturier of ravishing hair pieces. Her collection offers an array of fashion sense ranging from soft, lacy vintage, to bold and extravagant colors, and even stunning bridal pieces. Gracylu Originals offers recreations of previous designs as well as contriving custom orders to parallel exactly what the visionary client desires.”

And Tristian was sweet enough to do a little Q & A with us:

How did you get started with Gracylu Originals?
I sometimes tend to be a bit dramatic and over the top. So when I had my daughter Gracylu it just kinda went a bit overboard.  haha!!  I wanted people to see my gorgeous princess so I began to play around with flowers by adding things to them to make them as big and outrageous as possible. She was quite the show stopper. :)

What kind of pieces do you sell?
I sell high end couture photography props, women’s and bridal pieces. Most of them aren’t for everyday wear. They are more for special occasions or when you really want to stand out or have that extra special photo.

What is your price range?
My prices usually start around $40 and go up into the hundreds.

What is the lead time on a piece?
My current lead time is anywhere from 3-8 weeks or longer. Bridal orders are usually always longer.

Do you create custom orders?
At this time the only custom orders I can accept are bridal. I love custom orders but they are so time consuming I find myself falling behind even more than I normally am.
