Today we are so excited to share a very special wedding! Melissa is a long time friend and works at Kinsley James. She also found her custom Olia Zavozina dress here at KJ! Melissa and CJ were married in Waikoloa, Hawaii. They had an intimate ceremony with a view of palm trees, sand and ocean, then we headed to a gorgeous, tiki-lit reception. Her sueded silk gown was perfect for the beach; light, airy and romantic. Melissa loved the fact that Olia Zavozina does custom measurements, which is very helpful with a curvy body shape. She also loved working with Olia personally at the trunk show to add special elements to her gown; especially the Swarvoski crystals! She wore a delicate veil by Toni Federici, and a sparkling garter by La Gartier, both available at Kinsley James. The images were taken by the talented Angie Capri.
Our biggest sale of spring is quickly approaching! The Kinsley James Sample Sale happens just twice a year so come early to get your dream dress at up to 70% off! Appointments will be first come, first served and we anticipate a line, so arrive early to get a time (appointment times will not be given out prior to May 31). Sample sales are very different from normal dress appointments; this is for experienced shoppers only looking to buy that day. If you are interested in setting up a regular appointment, please call us (925-330-9228).
Doors open at 10am with 4 appointments at a time, each with a limit of 40 minutes. There will be chairs and refreshments so you won’t have to wait outside. Unless you arrive early enough to be one of the first appointment times, you may have to wait. However, we will get you in as soon as we can.
After a quick consultation we will help guide you to the styles that could be ‘the one’. Each fitting room is limited to 3 dresses at a time. We will only have room for 1-2 guests per bride, so please bring your decision makers and know that dresses will not be held.
Only discounted gowns and veils will be on display; all other accessories can be viewed by setting up an appointment for a later date. Please check our trunk show list for upcoming accessories events.
Gowns are sold as is and must be taken with you that day. New breathable gown storage bags are available for $10, otherwise new plastic bags will be used. You will be given contact information for our seamstresses to set up fittings on your own in their shops. Cleaning tips will also be given to purchasing brides.
There will be no holds on any gowns. Your gown must be paid in full with cash or credit card and taken with you at time of sale.
Come ready to buy; our selection of sample sale gowns will only be on sale for one day!
