The Chica Boutique becomes HELENA NOELLE

A very Happy New Year to you all! What an exciting year 2013 is going to be! I wanted to do a quick update with some of my newest bridal designs and to also let you all in on some big news! TCB has been such a beautiful part of my life for a few years now, but when I first began this company it was a mix of this and that. As everything does, my focus has evolved and I have found my passion and niche and am able to focus on what I really love to do. Handcrafting these intricate, haute couture designs is it for me. TCB will still be on Etsy with my first designs. However, I am starting a new, fresh label called Helena Noelle, which will showcase my most intricate, couture looks. Please stay tuned and I will continue to update! xoxox

Bridal Garter Sets and Wedding Accessories- NEW

Wow....February was the last blog here. Can I be honest and say it is so hard to keep up with all of the social media outlets? So sorry for those of you who follow. Please know that I am in the process of hiring a couple of people to help me with the website/blog and other aspects of the business. I never thought the day would come where I would be too busy to do it all. But, it has and I am so grateful! I am so excited to see where TCB can go. Be sure to check out the shop for our newest bridal garter set designs. Here are just a couple.
We have just relocated to Virginia and as we are settling in I will update the styled shoot I did with the talented Lauren Ammerman of Lauren Ammerman Photography. Much love to you all! xoxox

*NEW* Vintage Glam Cuff Bracelets

Hours and hours are put into each of these Vintage Glam Cuff Bracelets. Each one is one-of-a-kind, as I use vintage and antique jewels mixed with new Austrian crystals. These are perfect for a special event where you want to stand out. Also available for the bridal party, I can design pieces that are compliments to each other, while still being one-of-a-kind.

I imagine this BoHo piece (SOLD) with anything from a cute sundress to rolled up jeans, heels, and a simple t-shirt. Perfect for a night on the town!

New designs are in the works.....keep your eyes peeled. As always, make sure you're a Fan on FACEBOOK so you get first glances at the new pieces!

Happy New Year!

We're officially into 2012! Wow! Many new designs are in store and some are already listed in the shop. Be sure to stop by and check them out. As always, I will continue to roll out beautiful, heirloom bridal garter sets that will be perfect for your vintage weddings. They are full of lace and ruffles and enough bling to also be fitting for that glamourous wedding.

Bridal hats are going to be big this year! Here are just a couple that I have designed for some bridal clients. Perfect for the bride and the whole bridal party. So classic.

Custom bridal sashes are also going to even bigger in 2012. Please see my shop info for custom orders.

Please keep checking back for new designs. If you have something in mind and don't see it in my shop, I love custom orders, so feel free to drop me a note and I'm happy to design it for you.

Happy, Happy 2012!
