The Dress

Every now and then, you find a dress you absolutely love and it happens to fit you really well – and that right there is a feeling like no other. Well, a fashion feeling like no other, anyway. Especially since for me, it happens almost never. A dress is made up of some kind of super complicated alchemy between a design and a woman’s curves, (and I have the curves) so basically, once every blue moon, I find one I love. Laura Scott, owner of Rope Tulsa introduced me to LoveShackFancy about two years ago when she special ordered a beautiful black dress for me for Lin's son's wedding in Wisconsin. She understands my body and my taste and this dress was just perfection. Seriously. Perfection. It's a dress that makes me feel so sexy. And fits my "Lux Bohemian" personal style to a T. I debated with the dilemma of ordering another one exactly like the black one that I own but struggled with the idea of being that girl that owns the same piece in every color. But Lin pulled the plug the other day and this gorgeous metallic silver LSF fancy dress is now in my closet next to her sister black gown! And I couldn't be happier. I think if you love something and you feel good in it, like that perfect pair of denim, freakin' buy it in every color and style! These dresses are seriously my love language!

LoveShackFancy is a collection of hand-dyed and printed silk dresses and separates. It embodies a lux bohemian lifestyle with whimsical pieces that can take you from the beaches of Tulum to an elegant dinner party in NYC.The LoveShackFancy woman can run barefoot through the fields or dance until the sun comes up in her highest heels. Think mellow beach mornings in Tulum, tropical breezy lunches in Belize; sexy cocktails in St Tropez – the design is modern, romantic and sensual all at once.The collection evolved from a simple dream of designing the perfect bridesmaid dress for a magical backyard wedding in the Hamptons. The diaphanous halter silhouette that  was born is the essence of LoveShackFancy. It is as versatile and comfortable as it is sexy and romantic. Each dress can be individually styled to fit a wide range of shapes and sizes. Wear the elastic at the waist or under the bust to best complement your body. Twist, knot, or simply tie the straps depending on your mood and your individual style.This signature LSF halter dress is divided into three categories, with different fabrications for different occasions.The shack dress is a sheer silk chiffon dress, the perfect beach cover up to wear over a bikini.The love dress is a matte charmeuse, cdc or georgette dress that can be worn from day to night, either barefoot or with a heel.The fancy dress is a luxurious lined silk chiffon or jacquard dress that is the perfect special occasion gown. Its the drama dress, and boasts a wide sweep and more fabric than the love dress, giving it beautiful movement for dancing the night away.The wearability of our signature floor length bohemian halter dresses continues to inspire each piece of this thoughtful collection, and we've now designed our favorite go to pieces, from maxi dresses to mini skirts, racer tops to minidresses. The ease and flexibility of each piece makes them the perfect additions to any woman's on the go wardrobe.

Stylist, designer and creative director Rebecca Hessel Cohen was born and raised in NYC. For over seven years she worked as Senior Fashion and Beauty Editor at Cosmopolitan Magazine, where she styled and produced celebrity covers and fashion and beauty editorials. While traveling extensively on photo shoots around the world, Rebecca fell in love with various countries, cultures and aesthetics, all of which continue to influence her design and point of view. It was her childhood summers spent at her family’s Hamptons home where her love affair with the beach began, becoming the perfect backdrop for her fairytale wedding in 2010 and later the inspiration for her wanderlust label LoveShackFancy.The colors, the light and the salty warm air inspired Rebecca's magical backyard wedding, evocative of the South of France meets Great Expectations. Always the dreamer and creator, Rebecca designed her own bridesmaid dresses to make her dream a reality. "I truly wanted my bridesmaids to look and feel like ethereal goddesses, dancing barefoot in the garden under the moonlit summer night.Receiving such an overwhelming response from family and friends, Rebecca saw an opportunity and a need for effortless pieces women can wear from day to night, city to beach.  Rebecca officially left the magazine world to throw herself into her new business venture in 2012, successfully launching the brand LoveShackFancy and becoming a mother within the same month.  She launched the eponymous label in May 2013 and evolved the collection to become the ultimate bohemian inspired women's fashion collection forming the perfect travel wardrobe with a cult following of boho, globe-trotting goddesses, including Gwyneth Paltrow, JLo and Chrissy Tiegen. She now employs a team of five and stocks in Barney's, Intermix, Saks, Neiman's, Revolve, Shop-bop and more than 50 specialty retailers around the world.

I am so addicted to this company and brand. And my wedding dress will definitely be a LoveShackFancy.
