The new BHLDN?

(click to enlarge)

Stone Fox Bride. Could be genius. Could be a faux-indie-wedding nightmare.

Note: Not all stone foxes need the hook-up on yoga studios, acupuncturists and ASTROLOGISTS. (I just threw up in my mouth a little.)

Anyhoo. Can I get a volunteer to go check out the store -- and snap pics, obv -- the instant they open?

Thank you, Stephanie, for the heads-up. Whatever would I do without you??

  2. HEY! There is nothing wrong with yoga.
    Repeat: There is nothing wrong with yoga.

    But I know what you mean. To me it sounds like trying hard but maybe it will be a nice store.

  7. Found some pics of their stuff. The part of me listening to the Mamas and the Papas right now likes it.

  9. What the EFF is this?
    Feather headdresses, where's my tomahawk?
    I don't mind flower crowns but this place has trying too hard and rich B-eye-itch trying to be cool written all over it in my book.
    I'm going to go get my palm read.

  11. Birkenstock? Birkenstocks are foxy? This is new!

    Hope it doesn't turn out to be an over-priced mess though. Something like that would go over well in the SF Bay Area. Maybe.

  12. @Maddie -10pts for not making a REAL LINK for us.

  13. I wanted to have an obnoxious hippie-boho-hipster wedding but gave up due to not being able to find the right dress (also couldn't spend over $1k). I take comfort in the fact that there's no way this place would have been affordable to me.
    Only a complete twit or an Olson twin would get married in a feather headdress.

  14. sounds like someone needs some acupuncture.

  15. oh there's that electric feathers dress I was sweating over. On a real model I can see it's definitely a man repeller.

  16. @lauren you talking to me? i'm cool. i just need that FLSK.

    ReplyDelete
  17. what if I make a feather headdress out of the tail feathers of the chickens I'm raising organically in my backyard? I'm going to ask my psychic what she thinks.

  18. First picture, chick on the left, her dress is ok, the others need not apply, they are wearing sheets that are tied around their waste. I like shoulders and backs.

  19. & just what is this shop supposed to do when the trend of using the word stone and/or fox dies?

    in other news, cute dresses. def manrep. though

  20. I was really hoping this was an off-shoot of Stone Cold Fox, the clothing line. Their dresses are perfect for the bohemian bride. As seen here and here. But Stone Fox Bride looks equally cool.

  21. @Miss Georgia that headdress/turban is THE WORST

  22. who cares if it's manrepellant? if you're walking down the aisle, it's too late for him to be repelled.

  23. @ESB I wont lie, I was going to make you a real link, but it's Friday and the thought of having to open up a new tab in my browser was seriously daunting.

    While I still say that it's your wedding day and you should let your freak flag fly however it wants to, I couldn't help making the comparison between This and This.

  24. AAHHHHH! IT'S TOTALLY LITTLE MERMAID!

    and just as delusional. :)

    ReplyDelete
  25. and agree on the Stone Cold Fox vs Stone Fox Bridal thing. Stone Cold Fox is far superior.

    ReplyDelete
  26. The thing is, I get that maybe it's trying a little too hard.

    But have you been to the bridal shops in Soho?

    At least it's *trying*, right?

  27. haha Allyson, they are TOTALLY the dress the little mermaid fashions when she first gets legs

  28. Aesthetically speaking, I like what's going on here, and I'm glad there will be other options for brides out there.

    However, if you're walking into a Crate and Barrel store and throwing down a few grand for a flower crown, designer dress, and cosmic alignment - you may not be the bohemian you think you are.

    ReplyDelete
  29. totally agree with @pam, but can't lie that I'm excited to see what they come up with for veils and sashes...I hate all the stuff out there right now, but I feel my dress desperately needs both...we'll see.

  30. The new BHLDN? Really??

    Your'e right - not all brides need the hook-up on yoga studios, acupuncturists and the like. But shouldn't you at least have the option to choose from something that is completely different then what all the other bridal brands are offering? I'm married, but from my experience that shit was not easy to do on an emotional level. If I could have had one destination to go to and pick from dresses, flowers, make-up, etc. that suits my aesthetic, hell yes I would asked for a spiritual healer. I think this is a genius concept!

    I mean, clearly there is something missing in the market, or else this blog wouldn't exist, right?

  31. Super tacky, old concept by trust fund kid.
