If you have seen a Guess advertisement over the past 3 years, chances are that you have seen Natalie Pack's face. She is quickly becoming one of America's most-beloved supermodels, known for her work with not only Guess but also CK1, America's Next Top Model and more. But there are a few things about Natalie that her high-gloss, incredibly alluring images don't convey. And no-- I'm not talking about her diet and fitness regimen. I'm talking about her down-to-earth side. Mainly: the side of her that worships the ground that her dog walks on. Seriously, this girl loves her dog more than the average dog-lover, which is saying a lot if you know of any hardcore canine-fans. (If you follow Natalie on instagram, then you have most likely caught a glimpse of her beloved Viszla Fig. And if you haven't, then check out the last few photos at the bottom of this blog. To say that he is handsome is a total understatement.)
So, when Katherine Webb got in touch with me a few months ago about creating a custom garter set for Natalie (#BestiePoints), it was only natural that I immediately suggested adding some sort of canine-inspired element to Natalie's design. So what does that look like might you ask? How can you make canine chic and elegant? Well, if you have the help of a designer called Esquivel and Fees. That is, after much searching, Natalie and I found an incredible jewelry designer in Houston, Texas that hand-casts each sterling silver pendant that they make, ensuring that each pendant is unique and PERFECT. What did we order might you ask? Well, a sterling silver Vizsla pendant of course!!! Scroll through the images below to see how each detail of Natalie's garter set represents either her wedding, her unmistakable bridal style or her relationship with actor Aaron O'connell.
Can you believe the detail in that Vizsla-pendant?!?!! Talk about high-quality. This little baby was created by a shop in Houston, Texas called Esquivel and Fees and I honestly don't know why they aren't worldwide famous. That is how much I love them.
I am not sure if #CanineChic is a thing but it is now.
Her "something blue" is hidden on the inside of her garter via two embroidered patches: one for her wedding date and one for her and her fiance's initials.
The lace on the back band of Natalie's garters was selected based off of the lace on her gorgeous wedding gown. (I can't say the designer until after the wedding but I promise I'll be posting tons of pics!!)
Because everything looks better when it is placed inside of a La Gartier box.
