Mars vs Venus – Critique of a Bride’s Look

Tia Mowry - Mars vs Venus

Cousin Mars thinks – Hmmm. Well, I do like the high slit. The leg exposure adds tasteful sexiness and exudes confidence. However, there isn’t much more that I like about this outfit. [Read more…]

MARS vs VENUS – Critique of a Groom’s Look

Common at Golden Globes '15

MARS thinks – I’m learning that as I’ve grown, I have developed an affinity for tuxedos. Perhaps it is due to maturity or the fact that I have several stylish friends. Either way, I think Common is pulling off the “Grown Man Sexy” look with this outfit. When a man doesn’t have to rely [Read more…]

Bridgette’s Pick of the Week – My Visit to Truth + Beauty Spa

Triple B on the Scene at Truth + Beauty Spa in Long Island, NY

I recently headed out to the borough of Long Island (for you non-New Yorkers, Long Island isn’t really a borough — this is my attempt to be funny) for a visit to Truth + Beauty Spa. This posh medi-spa opened Spring 2013 and offers a wide range of treatments for brides-to-be. So when the invitation for me and a friend to spend an afternoon at Truth + Beauty landed in my inbox, I was all in! Here’s the scoop: [Read more…]

You Oughta Know: Designer Love Collins

Black Bridal Bliss EXCLUSIVE: Love Collins Custom Clothier

Los Angeles-based fashion designer Love Collins has been designing stylish pieces for the discerning woman for nearly a decade. “I began designing under my own label professionally, full-time in 2005,” the newlywed explains. Collins studied at Howard University and the Fashion Institute of Technology and her first major break designing under the Love Collins Custom Clothier umbrella was actually a bridal job for Kimberly Chandler, wife of NBA player Tyson Chandler, currently a center for the Dallas Mavericks. “I designed the wedding gown for Kimberly and every item the bridal party wore — over 20 people!” recalls Collins.

Bridgette’s Pick of the Week – Carolee Word Play Bangles


In August, I attended the Carolee Fall/Holiday Press Preview. Carolee is one of my go-to resources for stylish fashion jewelry for formal or semi-formal occasions. In fact my bridesmaids even wore earrings and bracelets from Carolee during my Charlotte wedding last year. It was one of my gifts to them. However at their recent press preview, it wasn’t the “bling” I went home thinking about. I was most smitten by the new Word Play bangles. They too make excellent bridesmaids gifts and are so fun for stacking. [Read more…]

MARS vs. VENUS – Critique of a Groom’s Look

Hey, Triple B! Your favorite cousin has something new up his sleeve. In addition to my Final Friday musings on serious topics like marriage, brotherhood and parenting, I will post here each and every Thursday about…Fashion. The truth is I’m a simple khakis and sweater kinda guy when it comes to clothes — I’ve never been nor do I aspire to be a “fashion dude.” But Boss Lady Bridgette felt like BlackBridalBliss.com was slacking in men’s wardrobe content. Eventually I had to agree she had a valid point: Most fellas want to be fly for their wedding day, too. Still, I told her I would only do it if I could make it fun and stay true to who I am. So I partnered up with my lil’ cuz Janee D. Weather aka “Venus” (Triple B’s hardworking editorial assistant) and soon the Mars vs. Venus concept was born. We’re kicking off this exciting feature with a look for the groom and/or his groomsmen in the above pic. [Read more…]

Bridgette’s Pick of the Week – Nubian Skin

 


As a woman with a dark chocolate complexion, I’ll forever be grateful to my parents for instilling a positive self-image in me from an early age. As an adult I realize what they managed to do was no easy feat. I still have a few issues with my image — but thankfully my complexion (or hair texture/length) has never been among them. Yet, the reality is the rest of the world — and especially the fashion and beauty industries — is for the most part obsessed with light skin. So although you’ll never catch me trying to bleach mine, it is annoying to say the least when searching for bandaids, hosiery, lingerie, etc. to match my ebony tone. In fact, the rare times I do find a bra/panty set in my shade that is actually  cute, I literally get excited. How cool it would be to have a go-to resource for brown women that offered affordable and stylish undergarments in a range of brown hues, right?

Enter Nubian Skin.

Bridgette’s Pick of the Week – Flash Tattoos

Flash Tattoos: My latest crush!

When I was a freshman in college, I got my first (and only) tattoo. My older cousin took me to get it and thankfully provided some guidance. She ensured the location was clean, licensed and that I didn’t get some teenage boyfriend’s name permanently stenciled on my body. I went with an ankh on my upper right thigh and nearly 20 years later I have no regrets.

But, every now and then a gal wants to mix things up — and not necessarily with permanent ink — with no guilt or worry. So when my friend Pam introduced me to Flash Tattoos, I was excited. These metallic henna-inspired temporary tattoos are so hot! [Read more…]
