With wedding season upon us it’s time to invest in a few cocktail dresses. Here are a few of our favorites that will guarantee that the bride won’t be the only one turning heads!
Pictured above, clockwise, from left:
Ammara’s Mosaic Dress would be perfect for a garden wedding. We love the cheery colors and classic cut.
Shoshanna’s Cecile Lace Dress is a beautiful coral color with a nude underlining. The scalloped edges are extremely feminine and perfect for a more formal affair.
The Lora Dress by Alice + Olivia is a flirty metallic number with a drop waist. There is a sheer panel in the back that makes it even edgier.
The Peony Dress by Jules Reid has a classic pouf silhouette that looks great worn with a belt. We’ve found that this shape flatters most body types, so find your best belt and throw it on! The bonus is the large side pockets– perfect for stashing a lipstick and some money for the valet.
The Jacquard Dress by Twelfth Street by Cynthia Vincent has vivid stripes that accent a floral-print jacquard dress. It is styled with an open back and softly pleated skirt and would look great with either strappy silver heels or a more casual wedge.
A metallic print intensifies the glamorous feel of this romantic one-shoulder Rayna Dress. Delicate pleating lends a Grecian look to the bustier bodice, while dense ruching gives the skirt volume and movement. What’s not to love?
We’re going crazy for this statement accessory that never goes out of style!

This solid 18 karat yellow gold Flower Cuff by Melissa Braniff is hand forged into a signature flower design and hammered finish.
The flower is an abstract representation of the Orchid which dates back to ancient Rome and Greece.
Lizzy Couture’s Vintage Rhinestone cuff has been spotted on a celebrity or two, and you will certainly look like when when you sport this stunner.
We love the dynamic design of Bounkit’s Rock Crystal Quartz and Green Onyx cuff. The hinge makes it easy to slip on, which is an added bonus.
Anna Ruth Henriques’ designs have us completely captivated. The Petite Labyrinth Cuff embodies nature’s duality, oppositions, multifaceted aspects – and leaves space for interpretation. Plus it is both wearable and seriously comfortable!
Glamourpuss’ hammered gold cuff is set with lovely blue chalcedony. We think it’s the perfect accessory for a sundress in these warmer months.
I launched Goshwara in 2007 while only supplying one of kind pieces to a private clientele. This period allowed me to grow and expose a different side of gemstones. After the success of my exclusive line, I decided to fill a void in the market for luxuriously fun pieces, later enhancing Goshwara into a collection based brand, two years later.
As we’ve grown, we’re excited to announce our new look on Taigan! It’s the best time of year to introduce our staple pieces with fresh color combinations. Just in time for Mother’s Day around the corner – it’s a ‘springtime must’ for you to scroll through our rings, bracelets and earrings to find the perfect gift for your perfect lady.
Weddings are no exception to the rule either! If you’re that bride with unconventional, yet stylish taste – Goshwara is for you! We offer vibrant arrangements of cabochons, discs, facets and beads set with 18k white or yellow gold. Whether you are looking for a piece of jewelry that celebrates your favorite color or looking to celebrate your favorite person, we are a one-stop-shop for your colorful jewelry needs.
As a result, the brand grew into a variety of vibrantly colored collections. Three of which are provided to you on Taigan pictured below:
Mischief: The good guys never have as much fun! So why not create a little mischief? These hand-polished candy-like discs set in 18K gold, will cause a desirable raucous in the midst of admirers, so please, wear with caution.
Gossip: Like any good piece of gossip, this collection carries a hint of shock value. They will have everyone in suspense about what we’ll do next.
Naughty: This collection has dangerous curves tied with exotic colors. When unveiled, these pieces will bring a smile to the most conservative aficionado.
Have a wonderful rest of the week from all of us at Goshwara,
Sweta Jain and my design team
We’re thrilled to introduce La Matera!
La Matera was inspired by the gauchos of southern Argentina. Their rustic lifestyle, rugged charm, and the elegance of their traditional woven fabrics inspired the adventure of La Matera. Think the rough and tough cowboy from that Cormac McCarthy novel you never read…. but with cooler belts.
The indigenous people of Argentina’s countryside have woven these distinct geometric patterns for hundreds of years. Handsome, exotic, and remarkably rugged, it is apparent why these fabrics worn by gauchos became fashionable among families of the countryside and many of the great polo players of Argentina.

Like a chef who shops the green market, or a painter who creates their work en plein air, it’s undeniable that we are deeply inspired by our surroundings and the unique flavor of the island we call home. So we took a stroll and snapped a few photos of places we know well that are reflected in our collection.
Plainly put, we love it here. It’s quirkier than you’d imagine, it’s a transient place that welcomes vacationers from around the world, it’s also a place with a year ’round population and loads of young families. It’s a tropical island that faces the threat of hurricanes, a place that if it were left untended would be swallowed up by vegetation in no time. It’s a town where ladies push dogs around in baby strollers and restaurants offer dog menus, and it’s a place that some of the world’s greatest philanthropists call home. It’s a town of surfers, authors, photographers, artists, singers and musicians. It’s an island that argues over politics and celebrates it’s hometown success stories. There are incredible homes, incredible cars, and incredible show-offs. There is also lots of heart, and faith, and generosity, often where you’d least expect it.
Our surroundings never disappoint, and whether it’s the exotic strangeness of a sausage tree at the Four Arts Garden, the charm of a flock of native parrots squawking at dusk, the fountains, the Portuguese tiles, the sea and the sky, the cool shade and the hot sun, iguanas, lizards, manatees and spinner sharks, the fragrant hedges of gardenia and jasmine, orchids sprouting from palm trees, vines climbing walls, mangoes and coconuts falling from trees, the ocean breeze, the heavy rains, it’s home and we just can’t help being inspired by it each day..
Have a wonderful rest of the week from the two of us at CJ Laing,
Jack Laing and Ali Russell
