It doesn’t come at much suprise that the Oscar de la Renta Bridal 2013 Collection (which you can check out in all it’s optically delicious glory over at Wedding Chicks) is positively awe and envy inspiring.
The last time I saw pastel colors used for a formal dress was my mother’s prom dress from 1976. A periwinkle, floor length, haltered chiffon dress, trimmed with delicate lace daisies. Certainly dated, but demurely feminine and lovely.
“Dated” is the farthest word from how you can describe this collection. Oscar de la Renta manages to fold the classic, pale femininity of yester year fashion perfectly into modern silhouettes. It’s hard to pick favorites, but we especially love these dresses, which lend themselves so nicely to elegant embellishment:
Drop dead gorgeous detailing with the flower embroidery and attention demanding veil, we cannot pry our eyes away!
A dress this exceptionally beautiful deserves amazing accessories. Here are some that we think would complement it fabulously:
Opting for comfort doesn’t mean you have to settle for looking too casual. These Badgley Mischka Sindee flats

Perhaps the natural response to fashion’s recently beloved extra-bold colors, pastels have been popping up all over the runways, and lend themselves so well to this jaw dropping gown. We love these trend-forward pieces:
If you love pastels, you have to check out all of Badgley Mischka’s current offerings, many of which are currently on sale. We love these Goodie Sky Blue “Tiffany Blue” pumps
, and have made no secret of it.
