Tuesday Shoesday Edition 75

February 26th, 2013

With all of the brides coming in wanting that vintage feel to their wedding, I couldn’t pass up these. They are so cute!

Joan & David 'Cutie' Pump


I love the lace and bow detail! Perfect for a spring wedding too! Love, Love, Love! You can find these ones at Nordstrom.


Friday Finds 2.22.13

February 22nd, 2013

When searching for my Tuesday Shoesday this week, I decided to check out what else David’s Bridal is offering these days. Like many women, the designer things tend to pop out at me a little more. Shoes, handbags, gowns… The problem with that is unless you are a Kardashian, you might not be able to afford all of these things. That is why I am such a fan of Vera Wang’s White label with David’s Bridal. It’s reasonably priced and you still feel like a princess! I love this ombre gown for starters.

I love the blush (they call it ballet) coloring because I think it makes such a statement. Don’t despair! It also comes in stone ombre and a simple ivory as well. I love the sheer straps, ball gown skirt and pick ups! Talk about feeling like a princess!


Tuesday Shoesday Edition 74

February 19th, 2013

As  you know, I am a huge fan of mixing up the shoes for your wedding day and doing a little something with personality. However, not everyone wants some loud, shiny, crazy heels popping out underneath their gown while walking down the aisle. And that’s OK! I think these cute peep toe heels from David’s Bridal prove that you don’t have to go with crazy colors or designs to make a statement with your shoes.

Wedding shoes have come a long way since the ’80s. Haven’t they? I think these are the perfect combination of traditional and modern at the same time.

February 8th, 2013

I came across this adorable shirt and knew it was perfect for today. I’m a little under the weather, so anything that can make me smile today is definitely worth a share. This cute little onesie comes from Baby Image on Etsy.

I mean, how cute is that? The best thing is that it does come in other sizes. Just take a peek through their store and check it out! There is some other really cute stuff in there too. Happy Friday everyone!


Tuesday Shoesday, Edition 73

February 5th, 2013

I am in love with these sandals. I am yearning for some warmth and these are so pretty. Tory Burch, le sigh…



Tuesday Shoesday, Edition 72

January 29th, 2013

Ahh! These are just pure unadulterated fun. I am in love! The beading on the toe of these Kate Spade sling backs is perfect to add that little pop of excitement that every girl needs. And let’s be honest, who doesn’t love a little bit of sparkle?



Friday Finds 1.25.13

January 25th, 2013

I can’t think of many little girls who don’t want to be a princess. Especially when they are getting all dressed up for a wedding! How freaking cute is this flower girl crown from Noces de l’Amore?

I can see it now. This adorable little girl throwing a huge fit because she wants to wear this crown to preschool every day. Hey, at least you know she will like it! Complete cuteness!


Tuesday Shoesday, Edition 71

January 22nd, 2013

Sometimes the best thing is to get back to basics. These Michael Kors Mary Jane heels are the epitome of the classic basic. You cannot go wrong with them.

Suede. Black. Right? Right.


Friday Finds 1.18.13

January 18th, 2013

I came across this bolero and knew I had to share. It would be perfect for a spring wedding or just someone looking to add a bit more coverage. The detail in the lace is gorgeous!

This one can be found in Alisa Benay Bridal on Etsy. I dare you to take a look around her shop and not fall in love with just about everything.


Tuesday Shoesday, Edition 70

January 16th, 2013

Today is my Tuesday, OK? No seriously, I worked Sunday this weekend instead of the normal Saturday and now my days are completely thrown off. I feel like today is Tuesday. So when I was planning out my week, I planned to write today. Not yesterday. I have been doing this all week so far.

And to top it all off, the warm weather is gone as quickly as it came. Boo. So not only does my mind think it’s Tuesday, but it’s also wishing that it were some place tropical. That must be why I am so attracted to these yummy Alexander McQueen heels.


I mean, these make me want to sip a mojito and lay in the sun. So what if I am wearing heels with my bathing suit? Don’t judge me.
