Dress of the Week

This beautiful lace dress was actually designed and hand-made for the bride.  The dress is elegant, detailed in all the right ways, and completely memorable.  The bride is also completely beautiful and has me thinking about taking my hair two shades darker.  I swear I’d love to look like Snow White.

And the detail on the bodice is exactly what I love in a dress!  Fitted but still soft, with elegant layers for a skirt (easier to dance in!)

Inpired By Sunset + Donuts

The title of this post summed up = I need a vacation.

Also, in attempting to name this color palette, I was thinking something lovely, like “salmon + blueberry” or “sunset + lavender”, but really, it’s pink + purple.  And I like it.

Those incredible-looking donuts sound just as amazing once you hear what they’re made of — they are actually homemade baked (feeling skinny already) chocolate donuts with blood orange glaze.  Make them.

And the sweet thank you notes – there’s a free download for those.

Inspiration: Lavender

I’m a big fan of lavender.  The flowers double as a florals for centerpieces, bouquets, etc., but they also smell amazing and dry well for sachets, keepsakes, and more.  Plus, a lavender bouquet or centerpiece is a far more affordable option than many other flowers, but because of it’s bold coloring, still stands out and photographs beautifully.

Purple Lipstick

How glam does model, Frida Gustavsson, look in this purple hued lipstick? (And paired with the camel-colored leather jacket = perfection.)  Of course I googled purple lipstick and found a whole slew of purple shades from plum to violet and every color in between.  But I’m thinking if you’re going to go purple, a trip to the beauty counter is much advised.

A few great shades of purple:  Lime Crime Makeup Lipstick in D’Lilac // Beauty Is Life Lipstick in Deep Purple 31 c // Lime Crime Lipstick in Airborne Unicorn // COVERGIRL Lip Perfection Lipstick in Entwined // Laura Mercier Lip Colour in Shimmer Plum Wine

Purple lipstick:  Love it or Hate it?
