As far as wedding day baubles are concerned, I am a go big or go home kind of gal! However I also think the idea of wearing the same pearls earrings your mother wore on her wedding day is simply divine. The jewelry you wear on your wedding day should reflect your personality. For a contemporary look try oxidized sterling silver and diamonds. For a bohemian look wear glorious peacock feathers. If a classic look is more your style, you can never go wrong with pearls and semi-precious gemstones. As always the sky is the limit on how to adorn your lobes for that all important trip down the aisle! Here is a little eyecandy for your inspiration!!

Everyone was a buzz over Vera Wang’s Spring 2013 Bridal Collection, and with good reason. Dresses with luxurious amounts of tulle, big ball skirts with over sized hand rolled flowers, and scarlet jewels all made their way down the runway. And then of course there’s the color. Vera describes it as “boldly romantic, charming, protective and in celebration of love.” I hope this is a trend that’s here to stay, I love seeing wedding gowns in all different colors and hope brides embrace it as well. I can’t wait to see her next collection!
Summer is here and with it has come a fresh, feminine color palette. The bright bold colors we saw on the runways have morphed into pale pastels for summer. I picked out my favorites for this summer’s bridal inspiration from Vogues accessory guide. I’ve also added a sneak peak of the Oscar de la Renta Bridal Collection, I can’t wait to feature this collection in the next couple of weeks!

A couple of weeks ago I took a friend of mine shopping to help her find a few dresses to wear for a wedding and a rehearsal dinner. I wanted to help her find something fun and versatile, which brought me to the little black dress. Every woman needs a black cocktail dress, it can get you through a last minute party, a night out on the town, an outing to the symphony and the list goes on. Also, black goes with any skin tone and you can always have fun pairing it with some sassy shoes or jewelry. We ended up at White House Black Market and found exactly what she was looking for. When looking for a piece of clothing I know I’m going to wear over and over I usually like to go with a classic style. I put together a few looks based on what we found. My friend ended up choosing the sleeveless black dress and the flirty blue Cascade Ruffle dress for the rehearsal dinner. What’s great about these dresses you can wear the same shoes and jewelry with both and no one will ever notice!
