Engagement Season

Thursday, December 22, 2016 1:01:23 PM America/New_York

Are you expecting or hoping for a proposal this Holiday Season? So if you did get the proposal of your dreams now you must be wondering what do I do next?

Of course the first thing you do is share the news with everyone and share pics of the ring!!! 

After you have flooded social media with pictures of the rock...now you gotta get down to business and take care of some details.

Here are some things to keep in mind:

~ Get your ring sized, after all you don't want to loose that beautiful rock you have been waiting on

~ Get your ring insured. Nothing can replace the sentimental value of the ring but if you get it insured you can get a new one

~ Set the Date! It can be hard to get your future spouse to commit to a date but you can't plan anything else until you do this.

Now on to the fun part....THE DRESS

~ If you have set the date for within 365 days, then you need to start shopping for your dress. Take a look at photos online, pinterest and magazines then schedule an appointment at CC's Boutique. we have 4 locations so we are sure to have the perfect dress!

~ If you set the date for more than 365 days from now, it is too early to start shopping. Styles will change twice every year so you don't want to start too early. 1 Year in advance of the wedding date is fine.

Next - Find the Venue

There are lots of fabulous places in Florida to get married. Here are a few of our favorites (in no particular order)

~ Lange Farm

~ The Vinoy

~ Don CeSar

~ Powell Crosley Estate

~ The Vault

~ Cross Creek Ranch

~  Bella Colina

Dress for your Body - Homecoming Dresses

Friday, June 27, 2014 12:01:59 PM America/New_York

Dress for Your Body Type This Homecoming Season!

            It’s hard to believe that it’s almost July! Before you know it, school will be starting and you know what comes after that… Homecoming season! With so many choices for dresses this season, where does a girl begin? The secret to ensuring you shine bright this Homecoming season is all in the fit! So how do you know which style is the most flattering for you? Most girls’ bodies will fit into one of five common body shapes. Let’s start by deciding which of these gorgeous shape you are closest to: 

Select the right homecoming dress

Pear/ Triangle – She’s categorized by a fuller bottom and narrow shoulders.  Usually these lovely ladies have full bottoms and a smaller bust size.  (Think Beyoncé or J-Lo!)

Inverted Triangle – This beautiful body style is defined by a full bust, narrow waist and hips, along with thin legs. (Renee Zellweger is a perfect example!)

Rectangle – With an athletic body type, the rectangle is going to have smaller proportions and few curves.  (Eva Longoria and Natalie Portman have gorgeous rectangles body frames!)

Hourglass – The hourglass lady is evenly distributed between top and bottom with a small well defined waist (Kim Kardashian, Scarlett Johansson, and Halle Berry are bombshells who play up their beautiful hourglass shapes!)

Apple – This voluptuous beauty has a full bust, waist and hips with thin legs.  (Jessica Simpson and Angelina Jolie are wonderful examples of apple shaped goddesses!)

Find Gowns to Fit Your Frame: Pear

Wednesday, April 23, 2014 12:56:50 PM America/New_York

If you’ve got that pear shape on lockdown, be sure to show it! There are a couple styles you should keep your eye on to ensure that you will look marvelously fabulous. A-line or fuller skirts are a great way to show off or camouflage, while a boat neckline or straps are a great way to balance your proportions.

Showcase your curvy figure and full hips with an a-line gown that gently angles away from your body. A fitted bodice will help reveal your curves in a simple, sophisticated and sexy way without sacrificing comfort. The simple lines of the dress will show your figure’s strengths and you will be sure to catch everyone’s eye.

Find Gowns to Fit Your Frame: Wedge (Inverted Triangle)

Monday, April 21, 2014 12:21:36 PM America/New_York

Girl, work those shoulders! With your shoulders broader than your waist and hips, look for a dress with a defined waistline that hits right at your natural waist. The classic strapless look will help your shoulders shine so avoid boat neck or spaghetti straps. The full skirt of a ball gown will help create symmetry with your wide shoulders and a structured bodice and will accent your defined waist. Look for a textured top or accessorize with a little bling around your waist to really highlight the more narrow parts of your body.

Find Gowns to Fit Your Frame: Rectangle

Friday, April 18, 2014 3:19:57 PM America/New_York

Everyone has a unique body type, and it’s important to know what kind of frame you have so you know how to dress it up. If you have a rectangle frame, your waist, hip and shoulder widths are very similar and usually on the slimmer side. And if you’re slender, you may have a nice athletic look to you. When looking for the perfect gown, you want to show off your best assets: your arms and legs. To do this, you’ll look for gowns that create curves and elongate your legs and play up your toned arms.
