Jack's Back

We’ve always been great fans of Jack London’s hip collections, including his modern and edgy suits. Described as evoking “an unrestrained street cool and strength” (an ideal goal for a nervous groom!), Jack London’s suits range from traditional black to a fresh blueberry purple and everything in-between. Inspired and influenced by the 1950’s seashore of England, the latest collection will leave the gents feeling just a little rock star. Opening the gates for those not able to visit their boutiques, JL is launching an online store in August this year. With a click of your mouse a purchase can be made and delivered straight to your door. Voila! Visit www.jacklondon.com.au for launch dates and collection details.

Very Vintage

It may well and truly be winter but surely there's no harm in looking forward to spring? Afterall, a palette like this would be such a welcome sight at a wedding on a warm, sunny afternoon. Found via the blog Snippet & Ink, this mood board is the epitome of classic style with soft hues, sweet details and a nod to vintage. I simply adore the lace and crotchet gloves! Visit www.snipppetandink.com for more wedding mood board inspiration.

A Groom Well Groomed

Amongst the stress and chaos that is planning a wedding unfortunatley the wants/needs/desires of the groom can sometimes get put on the back burner. If you'd like to shower your groom with a little affection point him in the direction of the blog Well Groomed. Thanks to lovely Twig & Thistle I came across this blog filled with information for the groom that will no doubt inspire him for his special day. I think grooms and groomsmen can often overlook the smaller details like socks, cufflinks, buttonholes, hairstyles etc but here they'll be well informed, helping them to look sharp as a tack come wedding day. Visit Well Groomed at www.wellgroomedblog.com.

Colour Savvy

I'm loving the new, fresh 2011 collection from bridesmaids specialists Ava Madison. If you're on the hunt for bridesmaids dresses, or even a dress for a wedding or special event, we suggest you pay the AM girls a visit. Having recently opened their first store, located at Shop 2, 19-23 Izett St, Prahran Victoria, you'll be amazed by the style and colour choices available. If you have maids with fuller figures or busts don't worry, AM are the queen's when it comes to fitting girls of all shapes and sizes. Visit www.avamadison.com.au for more info.
