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!

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!!


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.

Charmeuse Pleated Peep Toe with Pearl Cluster Style PRISCILLA

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.

Ring Security


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?

Flower Girl Crown


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!
