Just a glimpse of these vintage-inspired looks made me want to jump through my screen and try on all of them.  The way I’d describe them is almost identical to the way Rodellee of Adore Vintage, which means a) I have a strong sisterly love for her, and b) I won’t attempt to do it better.  So – she identifies the dreamy pieces, by designer Juliette Hogan, as “a mix of late 30s elegance and 70s bohemian, but with more subdued colors.”  Couldn’t have said it better, myself.

The full print gown on the upper right is just sooo ideal for a vintage-inspired wedding.  Wedding gown or bridesmaid gown, either way, someone must wear this magnificent flowing luxuriousness.

The timeless elegance of those looks would look so lovely with any mix of these items on what is shaping up to be your super-chic wedding day:

Friday’s Fab Finds!

For some reason, the phrases “talk is cheap” and “a picture is worth a thousand words” BOTH popped into my head simultaneously today, so I think I’ll go with it…

On to the finds… essentially, in Twitter-ease.


Want to embroider your own handkerchief but have absolutely no clue how exactly to do it?  It’s easier than you think; visit the always awesome and inspirational design sponge for this very elegant, very personalized diy hanky project

lotsa hankies!

How about saving some postage on your save the dates?  Here’s an idea: print out an image you love, or cute pic of you and your sweetie, and stamp the back with this nifty postcard stamp!  That’s creative AND resourceful, two traits anyone would admire.  From modernartstamps and terbearco, respectively.  Both on Etsy!
