We’ve been all about lace lately. Playing up the delicate texture of that intricately patterned fabric, our repertoire of femme designs continues to grow. First the Antoinette, then the Teatime and Bijou, and now the Macaron and Boudoir… it’s hard to pick just one!
Well, who says you have to. The bridesmaid latest trend to make its way through the Davie & Chiyo workshop has to be mixing and matching lace. Whether it’s variations in colours or design, a little bit of lace goes a long way to tie seemingly different clutches together for a new take on that mis-matched bridesmaid look. Have fun and mix it up!

SORRY for the unexpected hiatus from the blog but rest assured, we’re back on track! It’s been a bit of a whirlwind summer with a late rush of last minute brides but we all know that wedding planning is hectic and it’s all those last minute details that keep you sleepless and wide-eyed right up until the night before. (Yikes!)
As of late, we’ve been busy combing through all of the amazing custom orders that our 2012 summer brides dreamed up and have shared some of our favourites in our Clutch Gallery. Pop over, take a look and get inspired…
Here’s to an amazing fall ❤
I finally had a chance to head down to Sephora this weekend. Pantone has been lauding Tangerine Tango as the colour of 2012, and for once I have to agree. Normally I’m a classic red type of gal, but there’s something about a burst of citrus that just screams that winter is over. I definitely am not brave enough to embrace the trend via full-orange body suit, but there are definitely a few things I’ve been doing to make it my own.
Lips. I have been hunting high and low for that perfect saturated orange for the past 6 months. Amber Heard has been an inspiration, effortlessly pulling off shades that range from rust to coral to scarlet. Sephora’s It Girl is a bright orangey tomato cream making it an easy step if, like me, you can’t let go of your red. For a true orange you may want to try Mac’s Morange or Sail La Vie (if you can get your hands on it).
Nails. Refinery 29 put neon nails as one of their top ten summer trends. I have been loyal to Color Club for years for this exact purpose. Their neon collection utilizes pigments that glow in UV light, taking your nails from normal to neon by simply walking out the door. Psychedelic Scene is a vivacious kumquat that will brighten up your whole look. Lava Lamp turns your fingers into glowing pilons that will surely stop traffic.
Accessories. You can easily take one of our Tangerine purses for a spin to embrace this trend. The elegant lines of the Pretty Pleats in fiery orange add a welcome burst of colour to the plainest work wear or LBD. I prefer simplicity, but a bolder shopper may try the Classic Bow. Just remember, all of our Dupioni silk clutches are completely customizable! See a style you like that would be even better in Tangerine? Just write a Note to Seller telling us so on checkout. Why not choose the Twist Bow and select one of our other 35 shades for an extra pop?
Victoria Day is almost over, but don’t let that stop you from treating someone you love (maybe even yourself) like a queen. Champagne lace brings a tinge of vintage sophistication to any object. Our Teatime Clutch and Antoniette Clutch showcase the fabric in two stunning ways. Look through the rest of our store and discover your own way of incorporating this royal fabric into your wardrobe.
Soaking up the sun Mexico has got us itching for spring and summer trends. Animal prints, brights and bold retro make their debut to the Davie & Chiyo Spring/Summer collection.
Bright Idea: Prints can spice up a summer wedding with a neutral palette.
It’s those small details that make something amazing just absolutely PERFECT. Whether it’s a satin ribbon tied just so, something special that let’s him know you love him, a delicately draped veil or that keepsake that will always remind you of your big day… it’s those little things that go a long way!
Davie & Chiyo Corsage Clutch – $138
Agnes Hart Birdcage Veil – $185
BHLDN Sunbleached Belt – $380
We’re loving the 60’s brights for this season! A refreshing departure from this year’s neutral hues, a fun and sprightly palette brings an extra bit of excitement to that special day. Our Fuchsia Bow Clutch is featured in the pages of Australia’s WHITE Magazine along with a collection of inspired accents and accessories.
Definitely feeling this trend!
