J.Crew just opened up their bridal boutique on Madison Avenue. You can go to the store and dress your whole wedding party. And finally see and try on the bridal dresses in the store.
Here are a few of my summertime make-up must haves.
My dearest girlfriend Lauren, who is a professional yoga instructor and trained by some of the most well-known yoga teachers in the world, modeled my Francesca bracelet in her recent photoshoot. So, I had to share. Because isn’t she gorgeous??!! I’ve known this girl since I was four–she means the world to me and I’m so proud of what she’s done in her life.
Right around springtime, Lucky magazine does a guide on a month of outfits. I find this guide a little helpful tool when I do my spring clothes shopping. And I don’t buy much for myself, but I do like to pick up on a new shirt or new pair of shoes. Something that makes me look like I’m up on the trends. You can find this year’s month of outfits.
More beautiful handmade flowers. But these ones are wearable, hand dyed and stitched flowers by Emersonmade. Perfect for a wedding. I made a wish list of ones I want.
The hole in my heart that was once filled by Domino might be healed. There’s a new kid on the block–Lonny, which is a free online design magazine. But let me be honest–there is something about the feel, touch and weight of holding a magazine. I just like it so much better than viewing it online. I’m sad that tangible publications are becoming something of the past.
My girlfriend told me about Zara kids. I’ve heard of Zara–actually there’s one down the street from me. But it was just one of those stores I would always by pass and never go in. Now, I’m in love with it, especially their children’s clothing. European urban styles + H&M pricing = a mama shopping like crazy. Very cute. Actually Stella’s plaid Thanksgiving dress is from Zara.
I’m busy working on jewelry. I hoping some of the new pieces will be up before the week ends. I’m excited because there is a Cheap and Chic collection–all under $25. And they are all fabulous and still made with quality material.
In the meantime, bridal custom orders are now available on my website! When I mean custom, it starts with pad and pencil. Brainstorming, design sketches, material shopping, samples, final product. This is great for the bride who wants full control OR wants unison pieces from bride to bridemaids to flower girl OR the bride wants to match an heirloom piece. Click here for more information.
Drove this car while I was in Vegas. Now I want to buy one.
Bedside tables perfect for a guest room.
A really good vintage shop in Las Vegas is The Attic. I use to shop there all the time back in the day…and before the store became famous and now charges an entrance fee. Ridiculous! But the clothes and furniture are pretty awesome.
