Couture-Meets-Bohemian Wedding

I’m not even sure how to begin gushing about the incredible fashion and styling in this wedding, so I guess I’ll just jump right in.  In a word: jaw-dropping. The Bride’s incredible sleeved nude and lace gown was actually a collaboration between Sarita, the bride + Shu Hsien Ryu along with Dream Creations. Her amazing wedges were by designer Reed Krakoff. And the bridesmaids’ dresses = equally amazing; two of the bridesmaids wore Robert Rodriguez beaded dresses and one of the bridesmaids wore a grey tulle dress by BHLDN. Even the flower girls wore purple tulle and feathered crowns.

Little Love Notes

happy weekend diy gold leaf mouse pad _ glitterinc.com

Dear weekend, I’m thrilled you’re finally here!  I know I say that to you every weekend, but I’m especially excited about this one – mostly because work this week was long and I look forward to doing pretty much nothing this weekend.  I have big plans to lunch with the girls on Saturday, blog and take a whole lot of photos, and slowly but surely spruce up my home office.  Wish me luck!

Dear DIY gold leaf mouse pad, you seem totally do-able … and I’m going to give you a try! {Thanks, Lovely Indeed.}

Dear chalkboard wall, you might be the best one I’ve seen yet, and just the incentive I need to re-paint an office wall with chalkboard paint.

Dear Justin Bieber, I can’t believe it’s come to this, I’m writing you a love note … on my blog.  But your new acoustic song, She Don’t Like the Lights, it’s just perfect, and I had to scream it from the rooftops, or my blog.  Whatever. I’m not that into you. #liar

Dear fellow couture enthusiasts, this drop-waist gown (worn as a wedding dress) deserves two seconds of your time.  One … two … obsessed yet?

Dear Bachelor Sean, please pick Lindsay.  K, thanks.

Dear Style Me Pretty, you continue to blow me away with your booming business, gorgeous features, and lust-worthy … well, everything.  And the new Style Me Pretty Living – permanently bookmarked.  So.obsessed.

Dear crazy awesome earrings, my ears aren’t actually pierced (last girl in the world, right here), but for you I’d consider it.  Okay, maybe not.  But someone please snatch up these earrings and send pictures so that I can live vicariously through you.

Dear hubby, date night this weekend?


Dress of the Week

I’m not sure which is sweeter here – the adorably overjoyed couple here or her utterly perfect J.Crew wedding gown. I guess since fashion is my thang, I’ll focus on the dress. The deep sweetheart neckline, a-line-meets-ball-gown shape, the simple fabric, I’m really digging this dress.  And lest we forget her hair – totally trying the loose updo this weekend.  I wonder if I convince my husband to take me to prom?

Celebrity Style Love: Ashley Tisdale

It’s official: I have a serious crush on Ashley Tisdale’s celebrity style.  Like most fashion gawkers, I flip through the pages of gossip and fashion mags alike, looking for great pieces, but when it comes to Ashley Tisdale’s wardrobe, I want it all.  The Disney starlet has a seriously enviable closet – a closet I so desperately want to shop in.

Ashley’s look evolves daily and she has this impeccable ability to pair such seemingly mismatched items at a range of price points.  Ashley wears what she likes, repeats when it works (and trust me, plenty of celebrities never ever repeat, ever), and has a healthy dose of covet-worthy couture.  Even Ashley’s workout gear is fierce (ahem, I could totally be motivated to go to the gym more with all of Ashley’s neon and metallic sneakers, and a donut at the end of the tunnel.)  And girl has one heck of a purse collection!  Not to mention – I want all of her cardigans.

And the icing on the cake – Ashley and best friend, Vanessa Hudgens, actually swap some of their favorite pieces and coordinate their outfits on shopping dates, red carpet events, music videos, and vacations – because two closets are better than one.  Best described as bohemian chic, the longtime best friends’ style recipe is completely unique.  While Vanessa can’t get enough long flowing skirts and hippie-esque maxi dresses, Ashley pairs her more free-spirited pieces with a couture item that really pops – faux fur, a sequined mini skirt, studded couture leather jacket, arms of thick cuffs and chunky rings on every finger, amazing fringed high-heeled booties, enviable denim, sunglasses galore — refined rockstar chic.

We think its tremendous popularity is proof that the 2012 Corolla offers the ideal blend of comfort, value and safety. In it, you’ll find a surprising number of high-end features, like available Display Audio system. It offers remarkable performance and fuel efficiency, plus an impressive list of standard safety features. Factor in its legendary reliability, and it’s even more apparent that Corolla is the smart choice.
