BOLERO DREAMS + A LAYER CAKE FOR YOUR NECK | If you don’t buy these, I will.

While curating a bit in my personal corner of the lovely wonderland that is Pinterest, I found something pinned that I just had to bring back to you guys.  Perfect timing, too, since it’s getting a little chilly ’round these parts and, while this piece is hardly a way to warm up, I still recommend it to the stylish bride who’ll be sporting bare shoulders this fall or winter.  Wear this.  It will blow everyone away.

Technically, it’s called an Ivory Corsaged Silk Wrap, so, yeah, there you go. And the embellishments going on in this piece are just the most delightful embellishments ever!

And guess what?  It even ties daintily in the back, to keep it on if, say, a cold breeze blows by.  Oh how I love this.

My girl Sofia, of Brancoprata, pinned that beauty on Pinterest, and I nearly purchased it myself, it’s so gorgeous.  It’s from Wedzu, and it’s only $79!!!  This means it’s officially one of my favorite things ever, because it’s totes my style and – AND – it’s cheap!

By the way, I also discovered a lovely Layer Cake Wedding Statement Necklace.  The designer named it a layer cake because it’s comprised of “layers of hand cut molded silk, sheer fabric, and mesh lace” and they’re “all needle sculpted into stunning flowers.”  Yes they are, dear.  Yes they are.

What do you think of these stylish accessories?  And don’t let my biased verbiage persuade you; I want your honest opinion.  To bolero, or not to bolero?  And what’s your take on statement necklaces?  Chime in. :)

    That jacket is so hot.

    If it wasn’t a faux pas (spelling?), I’d wear both of those things, together. I cannot choose between them. They’re both so pretty!

  3. Alicia @CharityWedding on October 28, 2010

    Yes. I want both. Although I think the bolero and necklace together might be too much but separately they are fantastico!

    ugh every time I see a little wedding shrug or bolero I die!!! I’m diying one now and it’s TAKING FOREVER….and I’m so busy now I don’t know if it will be done until February …but I sooo love it. And though it’s taking forever, it’s actually quite easy. arrrggghhhhh. I wish I could finish it . … sorry for the rant. lol.

    That bolero is too lovely. Seriously.

    Although this bolero is to-die-for gorgeous in these pictures, it would have to be paired with the right dress. Obviously not all dresses are bolero friendly, so to speak. I am all about the statement necklaces, love ‘em! But once again, you can have ‘too much going on’ up top if you have a very detailed dress plus a statement necklace. Like you Alison, I am also favorably inclined towards ruffles and fabric details, flowers, etc. but too many all together could spell disaster. You don’t want to look like a fabric store barfed on you. Just sayin’!

    I LOVE the necklace!! Boleros do…NOT look good on me, however, that necklace is so charming and lovely!

  11. Brancoprata on October 28, 2010

    OMG I just saw this!!!! Isn’t that bolero a dream? I was doing some research for a Style Circle board and found this beauty!!!! So glad you like it!!! ;)

  12. Lena on October 28, 2010

    I agree with Lauren-a bolero, no matter how beautiful, has to be paired with just the right dress. As for that statement necklace, I think I’m in love!

  13. Lemon on October 29, 2010

    Beautiful! Love that statement necklace. I had my own very similar statement necklace post too. Very similar inspiration :)

  14. Naomi on October 29, 2010

    LOVE, LOVE boleros…but Elise is right it needs the right dress or it will just take away from the beauty of it…I love the necklace! Love WEDZU!

  15. Erin*Sparkle&Hay on October 30, 2010
