Lilac Dress Boutique opened last year in Alameda, California and it is simply a DARLING little dress shop. The space is gorgeous, the wedding dress selection is fabulous, the non-wedding (bridesmaids, prom, and just your every day cute dress!) attire are too die for, and the best part of the whole shop is the owner! Pilar is just lovely. Scarlett LOVES to go visit ‘the brides’ as she says because Pilar always sits her on her lap and reads her a book. She is really sweet and she stocks her shop with the most beautiful things that you don’t see everywhere.
I can’t keep up with her designers as she is always getting new dresses in, but I think her wedding gown designers are Nicole Miller, Lynn Lugo, Adele Weschler specifically the Eco-Couture collection. All gowns are priced below $2,000 and the selection is wonderful. Here is a sexy Nicole Miller number:
And these Adele Weschler’s:
The Ready to Wear designers are BCBG, Yoana Barachi, Nanette Lepore, Susanna Monaco, Tibi, Trina Turk. I could get into real trouble whenever I go over to drop off some more bridal jewelry because I always end up trying on new things!
And Pilar just started designing her own private label dresses and they are just as lovely as she is, look at this darling dress:
If you are close to Alameda and need a wedding dress or a cocktail dress or just want to pop in and say hi, go see Pilar you will not be sorry.
