Friday Finds 4.19.13

April 19th, 2013

Today, I am featuring a piece from a friend of mine, Lucy at Bel Monili. I love this piece because I think it gives a little nod to the 1920s era.



I can imagine this on a few of my brides. And if that one doesn’t work for you, she has a TON more and can do something custom for you as well! I LOVE her work!!!


Tuesday Shoesday, Edition 81

April 16th, 2013

These shoes are just FIERCE. Seriously. I am pretty sure if you wore these you’d walk around feeling like the goddess that you are.

GuiseppeThese Guiseppi Zanotti sandals are absolutely amazing!! Pair these with a hot little black dress and you are set for the bachelorette party. No one will be guessing who the Queen for the night is in these!!



Tuesday Shoesday, Edition 80

April 9th, 2013

I am in need of a pair of sensible nude shoes for the upcoming wedding season. I have to break them in early since I am on my feet for like 10 hours straight every Saturday. I figured I would share my findings with you today! I came across these little cuties by Jessica Simpson at Macy’s.


That woman certain has good taste in shoes, right? I mean, they are so simple and classic, but yet so stylish. Love!


Friday Finds 4.5.13

April 5th, 2013

I was talking to a bride earlier this week about Ann Taylor and realized it has been awhile since I’ve checked out their wedding line. And boy am I glad I did! I came across this amazing dress.



Then I realized it was two pieces! The bustier is totally separate from the bottom!! They have several mix and match tops and skirts in the line. It would be perfect for the bride who wants two dresses for the wedding! Don’t you think? And the best part is… you can totally wear it again after the wedding! This top would look so cute with a pair of jeans or a cute pencil skirt for a night out or even on the honeymoon. Imagine going out and having someone comment on how cute your top is and then saying, “Oh thank you! It was actually my wedding gown.” I think my jaw would hit the floor if someone said that to me! So be sure to head over to Ann Taylor today and check out all of your options!


Tuesday Shoesday, Edition 79

March 26th, 2013

Today, I am seriously so tired that it has taken me all day to get up the energy to search for a pair of shoes to share with you. Hence, the late post. However, when I finally put on my big girl pants and found a pair, they perked me right up. I don’t know why I didn’t do it earlier.


These adorable flats by Diane Von Furstenberg are the perfect thing to make any sleepy day just a bit happier. Don’t you agree?


Friday Finds 3.22.13

March 22nd, 2013

Holy Sha-moly! This ring from Erstwhile Jewelry is GORGEOUS! I am quite partial to vintage style rings, so that might have something to do with it. But I am pretty sure a troll could propose to me with this ring and I’d say yes. Don’t you agree?!




Oh la la…


Tuesday Shoesday, Edition 78

March 19th, 2013

I came across these and just knew they were perfect for the spring. I would love a pair of these to run around in on a daily basis. They’d be super cute with some jeans/shorts or even a cute skirt for the office, don’t you agree?



And I promise, I wasn’t even looking on the Kate Spade website when I found them. They were on Zappos Couture. But I do love me some Kate Spade!


Tuesday Shoesday, Edition 77

March 12th, 2013

With one of my favorite holidays coming up this weekend, I have to get in the spirit. Emerald green is on my mind!! Then, I happened upon these beauties and almost fell off my chair. DivaJimmyChoo

Irish I were getting married again so I could justify this purchase! Yep. I just used a cheesy pun. You love it. You know you do. Happy St. Patrick’s Day everyone!


Friday Finds 3.8.13

March 8th, 2013

If you haven’t checked out the new gowns at BHLDN, you are missing out. The new spring line is out for your viewing pleasure! I am in love with this line, especially the Onyx gown.


I think the back of this dress is absolutely gorgeous. While I don’t want to make too many cheesy comparisons to Twilight, it does remind me of the back of Kristen Stewart’s gown. And I don’t care who you are, you have to admit that the back of that gown was amazing. This would be the perfect dress to wear with those heels I posted on Tuesday, by the way!



Tuesday Shoesday, Edition 76

March 5th, 2013

Happy Tuesday everyone! I say happy, not because of the 3-5 inches of snow predicted for this evening, but because it means we are one day closer to the beginning of spring and wedding season. I can’t wait for this weather to break and am getting so excited to get moving with this year’s crop of fantastic brides!! I thought these were the perfect pair to feature today since I am wishing for spring.



The Kinship Heels from BHLDN are absolutely gorg!! I am in love with the flower accent. And pairing these with a cute sundress for a wedding later in the season would make you the talk of the wedding… aside from the bride of course. Here’s to hoping that groundhog was right!!
