Pretty Shoe Tuesday

I think these would be cute wedding shoes for a bride with red as one of her wedding colors...

dress up

Anthropologie has a lot of cute dresses right now. Some of my favorites:

they should have named it the 'Betsy'

I died when I saw this handbag. It was made for me! Peachy-Pink and just like my old Carly bag (which is showing it's age). Oh, to have $360 bucks lying around. If only it were appropriate to put things such as unnecessary Coach handbags on a wedding registry...

Pretty Shoe Tuesday

I fancy these Valentino sandals. A little feather, a little structural bow, chic and sophisticated. It reminds me of a fancy English hat.

C'est Magnifique!

Who knew I could get so excited about wallpaper, but I saw this on Anthropologie and my heart went a-flutter. I want to cover a whole wall... nay, a whole room in it!

Time For Cake

We're having our first cake tasting today (yummy!). Not only are we choosing the flavors we want, but also the design and look of the cake. The first place I went for inspiration is, of course, Martha Stewart Weddings. So many pretty cakes...

letterpress love

I finally experienced the pure joy of letterpress printing this past Saturday, and fell in love! I took a letterpress workshop with my mother offered by a local press shop and learned how to print on an antique C&P letterpress. We had a great time learning about the craft and printing our own project. There's a lot that goes into creating a letterpress piece, and I now have such a better appreciation for the time-honored tradition. I'm certainly looking to incorporate letterpress into the wedding in some factor. I'm smitten with it.

Pretty Shoe Tuesday

These Jimmy Choo's are a little outrageous, yet totally intriguing. Talk about flamboyant feet. Maybe I've still got Olympics on the brain, but they remind me of an ice-skating outfit--in all their bedazzled, sheer-cutout glory. :)
