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, …

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

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.

I loved these gorgeous shots that Elizabeth Messina shared on Kiss the Groom yesterday. A dramatic ruffly black bridesmaid dress? Stunning! The black toe nail polish and the romantic pink rose bouquet are the perfect finishing touches.

One of my favorite parts of the day is when I get the daily Etsy Finds newsletter. One day last week all of the finds were inspired by Academy Awards red carpet style and all of them blew my mind they were so gorgeous. I love the glamour associated with red carpet events, the glitz and glam of Hollywood celebrations. Why not infuse your next party or your wedding with a little red carpet style? A dramatic dress and eye-catching …

I love this dress. The romantic in me loved it from the moment I first saw it for the clean, classic lines and pretty pattern. Wouldn’t this be absolutely beautiful for an intimate outdoor wedding? It’s the type of dress where you can get married barefoot and then curl up on a picnic blanket with your beloved and your closet friends and family for a spread of the most delectable sandwiches and bite-sized desserts.  The type of dress where you …

This gorgeous purple dress has been on my mind for days since I first saw it over the weekend. I love the color, the romance, the elegance. In fact, this entire look speaks to me. The hair, the makeup and the jewelry are simply beautiful. I love this for the bride who maybe isn’t interested in the traditional white or ivory dress, but still wants to look like a million bucks as she celebrates her wedding. Nothing says you have …

Handmade Mardi Gras Masks from Lady In the Tower

Handmade Mardi Gras Masks from Lady In the Tower

With Mardi Gras on the brain, I thought I’d share a few of these gorgeous masks from Lady In the Tower. These exquisite works of art are the definition of drama. They are elaborate, over the top and loaded with incredible attention to details from the sequins to the jewels to the abundance of feathers. Akin to the beautiful and highly detailed carnival masks you find all over Venice, these masks are not your average Mardi Gras accessory.

Hats and Fascinators from Love Charlie

Hats and Fascinators from Love Charlie

Written by | filed under Fashion + Accessories | 0 comments

Over the weekend I discovered Love Charlie, a millinery located in Prince Edward Island, Canada that uses vintage fabric, feathers, tulle, flowers and embellishments to create stunning hats, fascinators, and hair accessories that are both modern and delightfully vintage-inspired.  I love the hats especially. They feel incredibly stylish to me and yet I also feel like wearing one would make me feel as though I were playing dress-up in a historic era play. These pieces would make beautiful yet unexpected …
