WEDDING SHOE + SUCCULENT LOVE | A little Kate Spade goes a long way, baby.

I’ve recently jumped headfirst back into a Fiona Apple kick (past two days) and it’s kind of awesome.  I used to listen to her ALL THE TIME (ohhh boy if cars had recording devices…), and there’s nothing better than taking a little break and returning to an artist over whom you once obsessed.  {Continue reading…}

{FASHION} CHIC PICKS, DISCOUNT PRICES! | gifts for the ladies | Holiday sales mean wedding gold!

So, as you know, we were snowed in for the better part of yesterday.  Apparently, at certain points in the blizzard, we even had “thunder snow” – so, heh, I mean clearly, this was a serious storm.  What’s thunder snow?  I have NFI.  But it sounds outrageous, and I officially call dibs on it, should I ever achieve one of my ultimate dreams as the newest female addition to the American Gladiators. {Continue reading…}

SPARKLE AND SHINE | gift ideas for your bridesmaids | If you can stand to part with them, yourself…

We’re fast approaching the holiday season, which means I’ve been thinking a lot about gifts lately.  And as we slowly say goodbye to the pretty fall leaves and prepare for the rather bare landscape ahead of us (save for the lucky ones in the south), there’s really only one thing on my mind…

And that’s sparkle, shimmer and shine. {Continue reading…}

FRIDAY’S FAB FINDS ❦ Starting with… drumroll… THE HUGE ANNOUNCEMENT!

So, I must start off with the most important piece of news today… well, it was yesterday, but whatever here’s the news:

I’m the newest guest blogger on Style Me Pretty!!!  WHAT?!  I know!  Abby does such a great job over there and I’m having an absolute blast being a part of all the wedding action to be had.  I hope you guys like my posts going forward!  Be sure to check out the first and second parts of my very first wedding feature!  That is, if giant inflatable swans at an elegant backyard wedding are the kinds of things that pique your interest.

See them?  See the swans?  Yes, they are fake.  Yes, I would have wanted to ride them, had I attended Nada and Paul’s wedding.  Seriously, how did everybody resist?

I’m completely smitten with these fabulous – and free! – desktop wallpapers that Ruche has create for our personal use and endless enjoyment.  Aren’t they ridic?

I’m currently using this one:

And this next one is the spittin’ image of that super sweet e-session I featured recently on this here bloggity blog.  Remember?  Now you can have the same-ish background that couple had!  And, depending on the size of your computer screen/your personal height, you might be able to pose in front of it for your very own e-session!  Yeah, not so much.  But all [totally idiotic] kidding aside, I am loving these backgrounds to death!

Totally in love with everything Leslie does over at Color Me Pretty on Decor8.  Prepare to gush:

That quaint little pot of floral yumminess brings up pleasant memories of my fave bouquets!  Leslie that is GORG.

I’ve always loved the way those candies look (below)… though I’ve never actually tried them.  I feel that I would be disappointed.  Are they any good?

Ooooh gosh.  I love.love.love. these dresses.

Especially the beige number on Emma Roberts.

Crossing my fingers someone knows and decides to email me about it.  Because I love it like I would my own child.  That much.

Speaking of gowns, I’m also loving J.Crew’s wedding offerings… and REALLY loving the fact that they’re finally opening up an actual bridal store so that we can all go inside of it and actually TRY ON THEIR WEDDING DRESSES. Because, really, what’s the point if we can’t try them on?

And you know how much I covet their flower girl line.  Put that little lady in one of those fancy frocks, and she’ll never change out of it.

Ok, one more thing: I saw these DIY wedding invitations here on Style Me Pretty the other day.  How. Fabulous. Are. These. Invitations.  How fabulous?  The bride designed, cut, perforated, printed and compiled all 200 of them… herself.  We should all be so committed to our goals.

Her tools: a sewing machine, paper cutter, home printer, tons of lace, ribbon for days, a crapload of pearls, and hand seals.

Bravo, Rachael.  Bravo with your bad self.
