How can you not love finding your something blue on sale! You have to just love it. This beautiful Betsey Johnson Bow statement necklace would surely be the perfect final touch to your wedding outfit. It is even more perfect because it's on sale for at Piperlime for $61.99. Fab deal.
I know that it is probably extremely difficult to pick your wedding dress online. But if you are adventurous enough to try, Shopbop.com may be your place. The majority of the dresses in their Wedding Boutique are under $1500. I was very surprised by that little fact. Also, their boutique carries names like Marchesa, Thread, Alice + Olivia, Ports 1961, and more for such amazing prices.
Cute, right? So cute. It is so hard to find dresses for your little flower girl that are not rolls on top of rolls of chiffon and organza. You just want that adorable little dress for your beach wedding (or backyard wedding). Here it is. This white linen peasant dress is available at Laken and Lila.
There were aisles upon aisles of cards and what not at the National Stationery Show. But there were a few places that made me laugh my a** off. One of those stops was Rabbit Rabbit Cards (sex, sap, and sarcasm). Audra Ann Ricketts is my kinda gal. I totally appreciate her sense of humor. She makes those cards that say the things that you really want to say but don't have the nerve to say. So now you can say it. Visit Rabbit Rabbit Cards to see for yourself.
Here are my favs (but there are so many other favorites):
Inside: Until then we will brace ourselves. congratulations!
This vintage rhinestone necklace is so beautiful. Vintage jewelry can make such a beautiful statement. Not to mention that vintage pieces are unique and are usually one-of-a-kind. Available at Bragging Bags.
Erin Gallagher never ceases to amaze me. I had no idea that she sold cufflinks. Pretty fab cufflinks at that. I am especially loving these pair of watch works cuff links which are handmade from genuine antique watch works. Very unique for that unique groom. Available at Erin Gallagher.
One of my favorite people in the whole wide world is Nicole Block. Nic is the brilliant designer behind The Nic Studio in New York. I have to say that as far as good people go, Nic is the tops. We have been friends for years but hadn't met face to face until 2010. So funny.
But even more that a great person, Nic is a fabulous designer and illustrator. She has been working night and day on her new stationery line which she debuted at the stationery show. Her new line is fabulous. Even more so because every illustration on each invitation was drawn by Nic. Here are some not so great photos (I have got to get a new camera!!!). But you can see all of her current wares on her web site, The Nic Studio. This collection will launch on her web site some time this month.
During Bridal Market in April, I visited the St. Pucchi suite to get an up close and personal look at the new St. Pucchi 2012 line. St. Pucchi is on the list of my favorite bridal lines.
I love the runway shows. But for me, I would much rather have the intimacy of a schedule appointment. Someone will take the time to explain each dress to you and I can take as many pictures as I want, the way that I want. A bonus for me was that the designer, Rani Totman was sitting there. She was so nice. She asked me what I thought about the collection. I told her that I loved it, as I always do. I love the drama of St. Pucchi. It's like being in a fairytale and you are the princess bride. So romantic. Visit St. Pucchi to see which one is your favorite.
