First and foremost, our thoughts remain with our friends, neighbors, and customers who were affected by Hurricane Sandy. Doyle & Doyle was very lucky, suffering only minimal damage and a temporary closure due to the power outages in lower Manhattan. We hope that all of you are doing well post storm.*
We spent a lot of time cuddled up with our loved ones while sheltering from the hurricane – daydreaming about the engagement ring of the week we would feature once we returned. Which got us to thinking about snuggling with your lover on one of the most special of all nights for snuggling – your wedding night.
There’s so much attention showered on your dress, it’s easy to overlook what you’ll change into once you finally slip out of it! Our ideal nightwear is something that tells as much of a story as our one of a kind engagement rings. This week’s Round Brilliant cut diamond vintage engagement ring is circa 1940 – right around the time Betty Grable was making waves as the world’s most famous pin-up, her perfect legs insured for one million dollars!
Whether you want your wedding night garb to make you feel like a pin-up, a coquettish ingénue, a powerful glamazon, or just like yourself, only sexier – there are a wealth of lovely options available. Some of our favorite “storytelling” pieces are below. Pair any of these items with our pin-up worthy vintage engagement ring and set your phasers to stun.
The looks: 1. A fantastic, romantic Bettina Rheims-esque look from Agent Provocateur 2. A fierce The Lake & Stars piece worthy of a Helmut Newton glamazon 3. A sweet Jenny Packham & Stella McCartney combo worthy of Betty Grable 4. Approximating Natalie Portman’s perfect bedhead look in Kiki de Montparnasse.
