DEAR TKB: “So, I’m a little scared of marriage right now…” + A BRIDE & HER CAKE | Kristi Wright Photography

These question and answer posts are steadily becoming my favorite types of posts.  You guys submit some really intense (AND CHALLENGING FOR ME) questions.  Crossing my fingers every time I answer one of these things, since you just really never know.    {Continue reading…}

OMFG, THESE SHOES. | They’re called “I Do” for a reason. Because “I” want “to do” them. Kidding, sort of.

Happy late Monday afternoon (on… dun dun dunnn… Bachelor night), bubelahs!  Ok now listen, and listen real good like.

There are times.  Tiiiiiiimes, when a person has simply GOT to share something with her audience.  Something so deeply happy-ifing… so lovely… so beyond perfect… just so gashdarned right, that NOT to share it, well it just seems like that should be illegal, that ‘holding back’ of such a thing.

And this, ladies and gentlepersons… this is one of those times.

SEASIDE GLAMOUR + I NEED HER DRESS | fuchsia + mint + white delight | Plus, The Bambeen… and I need a little advice from you guys. Also, holy crap I’ve lost my mind.

Second verse, same as the first.  I have to warn you, yet again, that today’s post got so out of hand I CAN’T EVEN TELL YOU.  I’m afraid even to read it over for spelling and punctuation.  I fear my own rampant oddness will get the best of me, like two parallel universes (universi?) colliding.  I’m scared.  Please, hold me.

Yep… happy late afternoon on Friday, friendlies.  Please, BRACE THYSELVES.  {Continue reading…}

DIY LOVE BIRDS VINTAGE WEDDING | Also, behold, why my position on The First Look Argument stands… | And, in unrelated celebrity news, how does his… fit into… HERS?

Oh, is it late afternoon already?  HAHAHAHAH, how interesting.  Time flies I guess when you’re mocking celebrities and arranging weddings.  Sigh.

Now, let it be known that I desperately wanted to title the tail end of this post “I like big d***s and I cannot lie,” but I thought it might, just might, be NSFW.  So I trashed it.  But it hurt to do it, so know that.  Speaking of hurting…  {Continue reading…}

SCALLOPED & SPARKLING | Nude palette love, sprinkled with scalloped edging and chic ways to shimmer. Also, OMG what the crap is going on in our building.

Ok.  When I say you’re never going to believe what my honey found this morning when he took the pup downstairs for a walk, I mean it – you’re NEVER going to believe it.

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…}

{#1} FRIDAY FASHION QUICK PICK | a little black shoe love | Jeweled Peep Toe Pump

Happy Friday, lovelies!  Here’s a quick little shoe love note for your morning jolt.  We’re just whetting your palate, of course; much more wedding goodness coming your way, plus a spot of news you won’t want to miss.  ;)

So, we were hit with quite a snow storm this week, but fortunately the NY plow drivers union decided not to secretly strike this snowstorm around (yeah, they actually did that, can you believe that crap?), so we’re not snowed in!  Which means, if I wanted to, I could prance around outside in these babies.  You know… if I wanted to.

That right there is called the Jeweled Peep-Toe Pump.  It’s by BCBGMAXAZRIA (yup, all caps, all one word; no, I don’t know why) and it’s available for purchase here.

(This one gives me heart palpitations.)

By the way, don’t be frightened by the apparent height of the heel – it’s a platform shoe, so the wobble-factor is actually quite reduced.  Seriously, I’ve tried them on.  I don’t typically wear heels this high, and I was fine.  (You’re talking to the girl who played sports and studied in high school.  What do I mean by that?  You know what I mean by that.)

Ok, be back in a jiff with some weddingy goodness to make your Friday a bit more bearable.  As always.

xoxo!  – Alison

PARTY SHOES | Martha Stewart Weddings Party and Bridal Market Shoe Spotlight!

Ok, so Martha’s Bridal Market Celebration last night was off the chain.  And, first and foremost, I’d like to personally thank Martha and the gorgeous ladies of Martha Stewart Weddings for scheduling last night’s shindig between the hours of 6 and 10pm.  You know the way to a girl’s heart on a Monday night.   {Continue reading…}

FRIDAY’S FAB FINDS™ | JUNE 25 | I Need These Dresses, Perfect Wedding Heels, Free Printable Save the Daves, Lingerie, Badgley Mischka, a Mod Wedding, Music, & Next Week!

↑ Love, right?  Deets to follow ↑

Happy Friday, my good friends!  I hope you’re havin’ a good one so far.  Me?  Well, this week was three parts hella-busy and one part I-had-no-free-time, but also one part I-fell-in-love-with-a-new-site called “Stereomood.”  If you loooove music but you haaaaate a) having to arrange mixes that’ll fit your mood and b) having to wade through the muck only to hit your skip limit on Pandora too soon, then you’re gonna love this find.  (It’s that favorite one I mentioned yesterday.  This thing is on like all the time for me.  I lovingly refer to it as my life soundtrack.  Btw, currently obsessing over the “it’s raining” playlist.)

In other news, I’m just psyched beyond all recognition to show you the Finds I have for you today.  But first, quick recap: as most of you know, I’m going to be away for the better part of next week (if you have no idea what I’m talking about, click here).   {Continue reading…}
