FRIDAY’S FAB FINDS | Frilly things, a dress that’ll make you bleed, these peaches are not for eating, white dress love, handmade hairpieces I heart…

Last year I hinted at this… My little brother (he’s 25) is going to be a guerrilla gorilla for Halloween.  This I believe will involve his trusty head-to-toe gorilla costume, fake guns, ammo rounds, and a deep, unshakable desire to overthrow his government resulting from the painful feeling of having been left behind by his [...]

GUEST BLOGGER | Are you Chic… Backyard… Modern? Find Your Wedding Style, with Lauren of Every Last Detail

I’m all about wedding styles, mostly because as a planner for an event design company, it helps me to know what types of things a bride is going to like.  However, I’ve found that when I ask brides what their wedding’s style is, they really don’t know.  ”Classic” and “elegant” is what I hear a [...]

GUEST BLOGGER | Wedding Warm Up: Accessorize to Brave the Weather Beautifully, with Magalie of The Demoiselle

It’s a scientific fact that love produces physical heat, which certainly explains why some brides won’t notice the nippy autumn air on their big day.  Personally, I’d bet most brides brave the blustery winds of fall and winter for one reason and one reason alone: STYLE!
