"Resm" Azericarpets Jewelry

I didn't know of this artisanal jewelry brand from Azerbaijan up until October 2012 when two of my former schoolmates, Leila and Mina told me about it.

Here's the thing with Azeri women of my generation - they are smart, ambitious and inspiring.

Resm Jewelry was created by one of these young women about 8 months ago.  Resmina tells me that while the production is happening outside of Azerbaijan, she is hoping to bring it home soon.

Resm collection is based on traditional Azeri carpet designs and I think it is a thing of beauty.
Prices run from $300 to $5000 and come in gorgeously crafted boxes with small booklet enclosed.
Unfortunately, you have to travel to my home town of Baku to be able to make a purchase, but I'm wishing Resmina to conquer the rest of the world soon!

Aiisha's White for Frost 2013

One of my favorite local designers, Aiisha Ramadan has done it again - second bridal collection!

They say don't look at any bridal dresses after you've chosen yours, because you'll be overcome by doubt and may want to change the dress.

I say, if you are about to get married, do take a look at Aiisha's Frost 2013.

It's modest - not much skin showing - and I think bride should be modest, blushing and a bit shy.  Even if she's been around the block a few times and just faking it.

Here's the collection, but first i just want to mention how much the model looks like the designer herself!  I'm sure it was an intention all along.  Another thing - I LOVE the small fact that Aiisha's team chose not to cover models' tattoos!  Edgy!

How beautiful is this train!

I'm not a big fan of lace, but this simple silhouette compliments complexity of lace
