Pretty Flower Girl Accessories

Written by | filed under Fashion + Accessories | 5 comments

I love these pretty flower girl accessories from Untamed Petals. There is something about long ribbons, wreaths of flowers and whimsical headbands that remind me of a storybook. As a little kid I used to try and tie daisies together to make a little crown of flowers to wear around. It never seemed to work for me, but I’d have settled happily for skipping around in one of these pretty creations. In fact, I still would.

Stunning Jewelry from Elva Fields

Stunning Jewelry from Elva Fields

Written by | filed under Fashion + Accessories | 2 comments

I love bold statement jewelry to inject a bit of personality into a wardrobe. A little black dress is instantly jazzy with the addition of something playful and bright. A casual wedding dress becomes a canvas for ultra chic wedding style with a killer necklace or the perfect earrings. I love all of the drama and unique design of the jewelry of Elva Fields. Their new Spring 2011 collection is truly stunning. Plus, a portion of every online purchase is …

Shimmer and Shine

Shimmer and Shine

I find myself completely in love with soft and pretty lady-like fashion these days, with bits of sparkle, shimmer and ruffles at every turn. The perfectly placed bit of shine, glittering sequins, wisps of silk and pastel ribbons are just impossibly romantic. Pick a soft, neutral color palette to keep the look from becoming overwhelming and load up on the girly details.

What To Wear: Red Carpet Style

What To Wear: Red Carpet Style

All of the Golden Globe and SAG Awards buzz has me thinking about red carpet style and what I would wear if I were to walk the carpet. I always love the stars who look effortless and timeless, with subtle references to current trends. For me I think I’d keep it simple. A long dress in a beautiful rich shade, a stack of two-toned bangles, and touches of sparkle with sequin pumps and a coordinating clutch picking up on the …

Sweet Ladylike Style

Sweet Ladylike Style

When Kristin Muntean of Hazel West Photography shared this beautiful editorial shoot with me I was immediately captivated by the story. See, Kristin’s grandmother has a gorgeous collection of stunning vintage hats she wore throughout the 60s, 70s and 80s and Kristin has started styling shoots and capturing all of the hats in action as a personal project. I’ve blogged before about how much I adore a really great hat or headpiece and wish we American ladies took more pleasure …

Sequins + Glam for the New Year

Sequins + Glam for the New Year

Written by | filed under Fashion + Accessories | 4 comments

We are celebrating the new year in quite low key fashion this year, but boy oh boy am I in love with sequins right now. For sure, if we were celebrating New Year’s Eve with greater fanfare I’d have to go out bedazzled and bedecked with sparkle and sequins and maybe even a bow or two. Nothing says ‘Happy New Year!’ quite like a little glitz and glam.

Pretty Crocheted Winter Accessories

Written by | filed under Fashion + Accessories | 3 comments

Perfect for the winter bride or just cozying up, I have fallen completely in love with the hand crocheted and knit accessories from elde. Made from fine wools, cotton yarns and mohair, the pieces are lady-like yet completely functional. I’d love a pair of the cute fingerless gloves for cold winter days when I still have to be at the computer and the shawls are perfect for wearing over a wedding dress or formal wear for the holidays. All of …

Fashionable Doggie Attire

Fashionable Doggie Attire

I mentioned yesterday that I have doggies on the brain this week so when I stumbled upon the amazingly fashionable doggie attire of Rover Dog, I knew it was too good to resist sharing with you. If you’re thinking about incorporating your furry kid in your wedding, I love the look of these cute coats, shirts, and ties that feel appropriately dressy without involving even a scrap of tulle or cheesy doggie tuxedo pants. For those of you who consider …

Fabric Flowers from Churchtown Chapeau Co.

Fabric Flowers from Churchtown Chapeau Co.

After spying these pretty fabric flowers from Churchtown Chapeau Co. I couldn’t resist sharing them on this Monday morning. Aren’t they just so pretty? These fluffy blooms can be custom made as hair pins, corsages, bouquets, centerpieces and more just contact Katie of Chellé Paperie fame to get yours! (As if I didn’t already think she was talented enough – she can sew, too??) I can think of a million ways to use these for a wedding, a bridal shower, …

A Sunshine Yellow Wedding Dress

A Sunshine Yellow Wedding Dress

Written by | filed under Fashion + Accessories | 6 comments

I have no idea how I missed this a couple of weeks ago, but this amazing sunshine yellow Vera Wang dress (from Katie + Michael’s wedding on Brooklyn Bride) has me rethinking everything I thought I knew to be true about weddings. I’ve always been a sucker for gorgeous lace dresses – I just find them hopelessly romantic and timeless, but I have to say, this dress just oozes romance for me. At the same time, it’s a little bit …

Handmade Wedding Bands from oli + me

Handmade Wedding Bands from oli + me

Written by | filed under Fashion + Accessories | 2 comments

When planning our own wedding, my husband and I hunted around on Etsy for homemade wedding bands. The shape of my engagement ring required a custom band for everyday wear, but I wanted something simple and pretty for those occasions when wearing my engagement ring wasn’t appropriate – hiking, camping, kayaking, that kind of thing. My husband loved the idea of a handmade ring for himself and really wanted to support an independent business. I love the rings we ended …

Every visit to Sarah Klassen’s blog leaves me gleefully immersed in happy beautiful things, most recently these frothy and girly bridal gowns by Jorge Terra. I love the soft blush pink, the ruffles, the ladylike necklines and feminine details. Jorge’s dresses are both modern and impossibly romantic, a combination I find simply irresistible.
