I am like super into gowns lately, well you know, because I am getting married. Since I haven't yet purchases a dress, I am even entertaining the idea of an evening gown instead of a traditional gown. I mean at this point, I am open to anything as long as it is in the white color family and isn't too risque for a church. Anyhoo, I was immediately impressed with the Deborah Courtoy A/W 2012 gowns when they were introduced to me earlier this week. They are feminine without going over the top aaaaaaaand you know, I like my clothes to be a lil' sassy. Deborah's designs fit that bill.

Cocktail dresses are on my radar as well. There are showers, rehearsals and bachelorette parties to dress for as well, so I am open to any designer's forray into the realm. I had never heard of Deborah Courtoy designs until recently but then she is apparently fairly new on the scene, which is fine by me... I mean I am in design school after all ;-)
You can find Deborah on Facebook or on Twitter. I was sure to follow immediately! I love a good emerging designer (me swooning). What do you guys think?
