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.

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 …
