Is Your Wedding On Trend?

TheKnot.com and WeddingChannel.com creator, XO Group Inc., has released their annual “Real Weddings Study.”  The study surveyed 17,500 US brides in 2012 and one of the most notable results showed that wedding budgets have started to increase.  The economy is no longer a factor for most brides when planning their wedding.  How does your wedding planning and budget stack up to the results?

  • Average wedding cost in 2012 was $28,427 (not including the honeymoon)
  • Average wedding dress purchase price in 2012 was $1,211
  • Wedding photography cost in 2012 was $2,379
  • Venue cost in 2012 was $12,905
  • Wedding cake cost in 2012 was $560
  • Groom’s tuxedo cost in 2012 was $230
  • Engagement ring cost in 2012 was $5,431

Most brides-to-be dream of a wedding spectacular; one that people will talk about for years to come.  To pull off such a feat, often requires money.  It is no longer just about the bride having a stunning wedding dress, but the entire wedding party has to be styled as well.  After all, if you are spending a pretty penny on your wedding photography, a drab wedding party in your photos is just not going to cut it.  One way to add style is with cufflinks.  Not ordinary cufflinks, but stylish cufflinks such as these:

If you are planning to give your wedding party gifts, their cufflinks can also double as their gift.

What about the ring?  Are you planning on a simple band or something a little more flashy?  Check out some of the rings we have here at Stacy Robinson Studios.  We have something to fit every style!

Fashion/Wardrobe Stylist DeVario Hannah Reviews SRS Products

Right on the heels of New York Fashion Week 2013, wardrobe stylist and fashion consultant, DeVario Hannah reviews products from the Stacy Robinson Studios’ product line. As an added bonus, he even gave us (and you) suggestions for how some of our products can be used to style fashions recently seen on the runway.

Among my many tasks as a wardrobe stylist, I have the luxury of scouting out the latest and greatest in fashion. I love taking what I find and putting it together to give my client’s a look that is comfortable, makes a statement and matches the client’s needs. Accessories are items that I get great enjoyment from. I love finding pieces that are often over looked and not given much thought; and use them to pull a client’s final look together.

Right now, in men’s fashion, accessories are just as essential to the men as they are to the ladies. Proper accoutrements are a must!

Recently I was on the hunt for cufflinks. Not your average cufflinks, but that extraordinary cufflink set that can be worn with almost any look. With thousands to choose from, this was a difficult task. After conducting an extensive search, I found Mr. Stacy Robinson and his statement making, but not overbearing cufflinks. These are hidden gems that I predict will soon be the next big thing. Well, if not that, pretty close to it.

One thing I love about his company is that the cufflinks are made to order. The high quality silver finish, sterling silver and titanium metals are just what a guy needs. Talk about making someone feel special; a cufflink set made especially for me…sorry clients of mine. The variety of colored inlays allows you to wear these cufflinks with everything. You have the option to match any of the colors in the crayon box or you can go for the monochromatic look with just one color. Another great asset is the price point. You will not break the bank with Stacy Robinson Studios, but you will look like you did.

The trends are showing that men are starting to take more fashion risks with wearing color, and not just in a simple way, but in a bold way. Enter Stacy Robinson Studios and men now have SRS cufflinks to embark on that journey with them. No matter what a season’s Pantone colors are, we now have a friend in the Stacey Robinson Studios’ line of cufflinks.

While perusing the Stacy Robinson Studios website, I made another stunning find: Gibeon meteorite rings and an exquisite selection of writing instruments. What more could you (or I) ask for!

Of course, I cannot finish my review and not give you style ideas. Here are my accoutrement pairings with looks from the Spring 2014 Collection of Louis Vuitton and Ralph Lauren:

Gibeon Meteorite Jewelry

Stacy Robinson Studios is excited to introduce a line of meteorite jewelry made from the Gibeon meteorite.  These custom made rings make great engagement rings, wedding bands and gorgeous tension set rings.

About the Gibeon Meteorite

The Gibeon meteorite gets its name from the town closest to where it fell, Gibeon, Namibia.  This meteor’s fall is dated back to prehistoric times and was discovered by the Nama people, who used the meteorite to make tools and weapons.

An English captain, J. E. Alexander, sent samples of the meteorite to London in 1836 for analysis.  It was later analyzed and confirmed that the material had an extraterrestrial nature to it by John Herschel, an English mathematician, chemist, astronomer and inventor.

Composed of an iron-nickel alloy with cobalt and phosphorus, the crystal structure of the meteorite makes it an ideal material to craft jewelry from.

SRS Meteorite Jewelry

Our meteorite rings are primarily forged from titanium and feature inlays of the Gibeon meteorite.  Because of the unique crystal structure or Widmanstatten pattern of the Gibeon meteorite material, the meteorite rings have a striking striation or line pattern.

This pattern was formed as the meteorite slowly cooled in space, before falling to the planet and the meteorite itself is thought to be over 4 billion years old!
