Hey guys me again.
I’m taking a vibrator (it’s mini) on a plane today, wish me luck. I don’t know if it’s legal or not but I’m gonna find out the hard way.
Ok. Honesty time.
Ever since I became a mom, every time I see a fellow mom on instagram post an exceedingly staged, attractive *look, i’ve got my shit together* selfie, I have to remind myself that there was probably about an hour of prep that went into that, with the makeup and the hair and the wardrobe selection and the kids not cooperating the whole time and how it was probably the best take out of like 100 takes, and that the worst of the takes probably sent the mom into a bit of a depression spiral. It makes me feel better when it’s day three of not having showered and the bedsheets need changing.
Is that bad?
Instagram both inspires me and makes me want to curl into a ball in my closet and not exist for a little bit.
In other news, the ethereal nymphs working over at BHLDN sent some images to me and I’ve decided to share them, because LOOK AT ALL THE PRETTY DRESSES
Zoe Gown by Catherine Deane ($1,600) Paired with Budding Crystal Comb ($120), Leona Drops ($180) and Parlor Slingbacks ($180)
In Perpetuity Camisole by Natori ($160) and Anika Skirt by Catherine Deane ($500) Paired with Crystal-Crossed Belt ($200), Carmen Halo ($350), Mizar Crystal Cuff ($70)
From the ladies who sent over this great stuff:
BHLDN released its new November lookbook… the black and white imagery is a first for us. It’s timeless and elegant, highlighting the extraordinary details and craftsmanship of our new gowns. The assortment, called The Iconic Collection, captures the spirit of iconic women of both past and present. The collection is luxurious but approachable and distinguishes style from trend.
Six NEW bridal looks include:
- Zoe Gown by Catherine Deane ($1600)
- Zahara Gown by Catherine Deane
- Nova Gown by Tadashi Shoji
- Barletta Dress by Watters
- In Perpetuity Camisole by Natori ($160) and Anika Skirt by Catherine Deane ($500)
- Francesca Topper by Tadashi Shoji (paired with our Seraphina Gown)
Now you guys, I have to be honest I don’t always feel like BHLDN nails it with the wedding looks they put out. I don’t know about you but personally they’re usually too ‘bohemian alt’ for me. I like looking at them but I probably wouldn’t go with one as my actual wedding dress choice. But this time I think they nailed it. I’d probably wear one of these. Assuming I get my pre-baby body back :\ (<– that will happen, right?)
Bartletta by Watters ($960) Paired with Ribboning Cirque Veil ($250), Crystallized Allium Posts ($75) and Primavera Cuff ($100)

Are these dresses your style? And does instagram bum you out sometimes too… anyone…
And do you want me to STFU about being a mommy (aside from posting the posts about my birth story and my personal tips for getting through pregnancy and birth) and just stick to the wedding stuff, even though it is my whole world now and I don’t know if keeping quiet about it here on the blog it is even humanly possible for me?
