Hey everyone!

So Wednesday I went to Claire Pettibone‘s runway show for her new Romantique collection.  I bout died.

Anyways not much to say other than THESE ARE AFFORDABLE DRESSES Y’ALL.  LIKE, I CAN ACTUALLY BUY ONE AND WEAR IT.

But before I get into it– remember this?  Well I want to expand on that news I sort of nonchalantly dropped in the title.  I am like a zillion months pregnant.  Just thought I’d tell you?  Sorry that I’m just now getting up the balls to announce it.  I’m {Continue reading…}

BRIDAL FASHION WEEK | Top Choice in: *Trends* | The One Trend I Wanted in Dresses, Happened!!! Plus Bambino.

So friends… it came, and it went.  And it was spectacular.  Bridal designers converged on NYC earlier this month for Bridal Fashion Week, and on the whole they brought forth perhaps the most satisfying alternative ever, to the full pelvic lower back tattoo of a mason jar holding a lavender bouquet shaped like a giant mustache sipping on a striped paper straw that I was going to get in order to make my wedding photos that super extra special bit of unique.  “Blog-worthy,” as they say.

Mom, you can start speaking to me again!  Not getting the back tattoo you said you’d kill yourself over before you lived another day to see me with a back tattoo!

Just kidding about the tattoo.  I’m not an idiot.  My tattoo will be {Continue reading…}

¡OMG! THESE DRESSES + DEAR TKB “Do we have to invite *THEM* to our wedding?” [Bridal Market Coverage]

Happiest of Monday afternoons to you all!  This week is going to rule the school and sit at the popular kids’ table and get free cookies from the lunch lady just for being nice looking because I’ve got such coolness in store you don’t even KNOW.  Giveaway KILLERNESS, wedding KILLERNESS, Vera Wang KILLERNESS.  Just lots of stuff that for me falls under the title of killerness.  (It was enough already with the ALLCAPS.)  Ok but first off, did any of you catch the Nick Cannon and Mariah Carey interview, where Babs Walters ask Mariah if her husband Nick Cannon can be trusted, and Mariah went, “… sometimeshe’s a MAAAN, Barbara.”

RUFFLES, TULLE, LACE, SATIN AND CHIFFON | PRETTIEST DRESSES IN THE LAND 2012 | No, seriously. These are the prettiest ones. [Bridal Market Coverage]

Happy Friday afterno-errr evening, ladies and gentles!  HOLY MOTHER OF HOLYNESS I FINALLY FINISHED THIS POST.  Hey Alison, why don’t you go on a date with photoshop (that’s fancy speak for ‘sit at your desk all day’) and break a hand-holding record with it, without pee breaks or water or other sustenance all in an effort to compile an up-to-snuff list of only your favorite pulls?  Because it’s not like anybody’s anxiously waiting with baited breath to see these dresses or anything.  Really.  Be a perfectionist about it.  It’s cool.  No no, it’s cool, really.

I’m weirding myself out talking to myself in third person.  Going to stop that.  I’m sorry to post these a tad later today than I’d hoped, but I truly hope it was worth the wait :)

Yeah, so you know how I had that little press preview Thursday morning to see Elie Saab/Manuel Mota’s 2012 Collections for Pronovias?  WELL……….. {Continue reading…}

FRIDAY’S FAB FINDS | June 11 | Part IV ~ obsessing over these wedding day details…

This wedding has made me fall deeply in love with the idea of having a wedding.  Don’t get me wrong; I adore weddings in general (I mean, YOU KNOW THIS).  But this wedding makes me excited for every bride who gets to design her day with awesome vendors and an awesome husband and what is clearly awesome design-mindedness.  But really, it’s the dreaminess of the pictures that did it for me.  Dreamy, ever-so-slightly-out-of-focus photos are soooooooo the number one thing in my book (aside from making sure you love the person you’re marrying, but that goes without saying… or does it?).

And by the way, her bridesmaids = ADORABLENESS.  Their shoes = ADORABLENESS to the MAX.

And now for some serious detail action:
