IMG_0083

Last week we attended NY Bridal Market and got to showcase our new collection. It was such a fun event and we were thrilled to see our friends and make new ones. Thanks so much to everyone who came and said hi, we love coming back to visit New York. We even had a very special visitor and honorary Untamed Petal, baby Jackson! Jax is the newest addition to Amanda’s adorable family. IMG_0073Our vibe for market was very modern nomad with a subtle pink Kilim rug, Moroccan textures, and industrial metallics. It oozed with femininity and modernism and offered the perfect space for us to meet with friends. IMG_0041IMG_0019IMG_0088These are some of our newest pieces!detailIt was so great seeing familiar faces and meeting new ones! Thanks again to everyone who came out! And if you weren’t able to make it you can peep the pieces on our website. Happy Monday loves!

The New Collection Is Here + a giveaway!

It’s here! Our new collection is live on the site and we are absolutely THRILLED to share it with all of you!

INSPIRATION:

The 2013 Spring/Summer collection was inspired by a vintage 1920’s rhinestone leaf tiara Amanda found at flea market last summer. The beautiful intricacy and ornate details were truly stunning giving the piece an incredibly unique heirloom quality. This gorgeous piece inspired the organic floral details found within many of the new designs as we worked to combine our modern and vintage ascetics.

The new collection includes many gorgeous new headpiece and sash designs as well as a whole new line of jewelry including beaded collar necklaces, bracelets and earrings. Our brides have been asking for these pieces from us for awhile so we are thrilled to finally offer an array of jewelry option that make great bride or bridesmaid gifts.

 PLUS In honor of the new collection we are giving away this headband…

THE GREAT PETAL MIGRATION- NYC to LA

Once again, sorry for being so MIA- moving is hectic! As some of you may know, we’ve made the big move back to the west coast and have settled down in Los Angeles.  NYC will always have a special place in our hearts but once a Cali girl, always a Cali girl.

We’ve recently moved into our new office space downtown and are so excited to have so much space to work with! We are still working on getting everything set up, but here are some sneak peeks…

What do you think so far? Our walls are bare and we are in need of some fab art installations so if you know of any great DIY projects, please send ’em our way! We promise to keep you updated on the progress!

Behind The Scenes: Our New Brand & Website Design

Hi All! Thank you so much for the amazing support you showed us last week with the launch of our new Brand and Website! We wanted to share with you a little behind the scenes of how the brand came to be – it was quite the creative process so we hope you find it interesting!

When we started working on our re-brand with the amazing Making Brands Happen team part of our homework was to come up with some inspiration for our new look. Having always been inspired by high fashion this was a pretty easy task. I knew I wanted our new brand to be sleek and modern with a feminine/glamorous touch. Some brands who inspire us currently are J.Crew, Zara, Chanel and ASOS  – just to name a few. I love how these brands let their amazing photos tell the story with bold text and clean backgrounds. Having had a few amazing photoshoots under our belt this is exactly what we had always hoped to accomplish as well and wanted to create a new chic space where our photos could shine. Here is a behind the scenes look at the first  inspiration board we created back when we started brainstorming in 2010 !

Another fun part of the new brand is the floral pattern you see on the left. We wanted to create a pattern to use throughout our packaging and blog – I knew I wanted something floral but not too light or feminine – something with edge.  I had seen the amazing floral pattern below (center) years ago on an email from DailyCandy and it had always inspired me. I had also saved the two hand drawn women as inspiration as well since I thought they were so gorgeous. Emily at Making Brands Happen took my inspiration to a whole new level and  I have to say I am thrilled with our new amazing floral pattern –  it is the perfect mix of chic and edgy. Don’t you agree??

Almost a year later we have perfected the new brand and website with what you see today. YAY!! We hope you love it as much as we do! It was a labor of love and we are beyond thrilled to share it to all of you.

PS. A huge THANK YOU to Lara Casey and Emily Ley for bringing my new brand to life!
