One designer I can always count on to make me react in a completely unprofessional, way-too-excited way is Oscar de la Renta. I have gasped out loud at some of his advertisements, and have one hanging on my bulletin board right now. That being said, after my jaw dropped at this edgy, but completely romantic, peplum gown, I was not surprised to find out that it was by one of my favorite fashion houses.

Oscar de la Renta | Jose Villa

Doesn’t she look incredible? Stunning silhouette aside, I can’t get over how gorgeous the fabric looks. I don’t think I could ever pull off something like this myself, but I’m glad there are girls out there who can so I can admire it! This Durham Ranch wedding was photographed by Jose Villa and shared in all its beauty on Snippet and Ink.

Love, Lisa
