Arriving Soon: Modern Romance Silk Wraps

Another collection that I am so thrilled to be bringing to Toronto! These GORGEOUS silk wraps are one of our most favourite finds ever! I have long been a fan of the Modern Romance collection of dreamy silk shoulder wraps, they are so divine, and fit in so well with what we are trying to do at the shop.
Wraps are an easy way to add a dramatic flair to one of our bridal alternative gowns, and we adore the entire collection. To start off, Sash & Bustle will be stocking an assortment of colours – ivory, silver, white and red, as well as the organza version. We should have our order in by the beginning of November. Can’t wait to show you these lovelies in person at the shop!

The She Book

The She book celebrates all the women in our lives. Mother, daughter, sister or wife. Student, teacher, customer or friend. Who are the special women in your life–the ones who care, laugh, lead and make a difference for everyone around them? Give them the gift of the She book that will inspire, celebrate and thank them.

Such an inspirational and meaningful gift for a Mom, Mother-in-law or Bridesmaid.

The Gift of Scent: Susanne Lang Parfumerie


“A sophisticated fragrance is a quiet luxury that is best
discovered not announced.” – Susanne Lang, Parfumer

I was recently brainstorming for unique gifts for brides and bridesmaids alike, and I stumbled upon the website for Toronto-based parfumer, Susanne Lang.

I love the idea of custom designing your own signature wedding scent – a couture creation, mixed and blended to your exact specifications. Susanne offers a custom couture parfum experience where one can explore her palatte of 80 “rare and precious oils”, all mixed to create a personalized scent just for you! Pricing for this luxurious experience ranges from $150-250 for Eau du Toilette and Eau du Parfum.

For bridesmaids, why not gift a lovely Susanne Lang Layering Wardrobe, a gorgeous gift box with 6 compatible scents that can be worn on their own, or combined to create a custom blend. This would be such a unique and special gift for your girls. The gift packaging is decadent, and for $70.00 you can give the gift of scent to your maids for a truly personal and unique thank you. for information and retailers.
