Also, their boutique carries names like Marchesa, Thread, Alice + Olivia, Ports 1961, and more for such amazing prices.

FOR THE FLOWER GIRL: The Perfect White Linen Peasant Dress

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!

Inside: Will You Please Come Over?

Inside: You are a b**** and I love you.

Inside: You brighten up my miserable day

Inside: Self absorption sure is time consuming

NATIONAL STATIONERY SHOW: @NicStudio Launches New Collection

Nic shown her with her beautiful mother

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.

WEDDING DRESSES: St. Pucchi Spring 2012

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.
