Not My Dress: Angel Sanchez

I adore Angel Sanchez gowns. His creations are architectural and modern and feminine all at once, and they seriously know how to show off some curves. Mr. Sanchez seems like the kind of designer who not only knows how to make a woman feel beautiful, but really wants to. A minor example of that? His dresses are true to size, so your wedding gown size is your street clothes size (mine, for example? two sizes higher). Wouldn't you think female designers would have jumped on that bandwagon first? Just a small way of making you feel great when you slip on one of his creations - we have enough to worry about outside of sizing. But I digress...

The reason I'm featuring Angel Sanchez today, of all days? Today is my friend Kate's wedding in Austin, and I'll get to see an Angel Sanchez dress in person, on her gorgeous self, as she walks down the aisle. (Yes, that Kate... the one who came to my rescue the other day, without my ever asking, because I have issues asking others for help.) So today's Not My Dress is, in fact, Kate's wedding dress. And it could only be hers. Her bridal portraits are so stunning that it's really not fair to have to post these model shots; there is simply no comparison to the real thing on a real woman. I can't wait until Kate returns from her honeymoon and can show off her bridal portraits on her own blog. Your jaw will drop, I promise you.

So to the gorgeous, hilarious Kate - a newfound friend that I'm so thrilled to have found in this crazy world of blogging - I wish you and Evan an amazing wedding day. I'm so thrilled to celebrate with you tonight!

May I present... Kate's dress:

Wow. Wow! Now that is a dress. Love that it has feminine detail, but still very modern; so typical of that designer - and exactly the mix I would have expected for bride Kate.
