The wedding planning is getting more intense by the minute. Every time I look at a timeline in a bridal magazine, I begin to have heart palpitations because I may not have completed everything I am supposed to by that month. Anyways, last weekend we had our cake tasting and have decided to go with a dessert table in lieu of a traditional big tiered cake. Now, I am on the ultimate  search for fun cake stands, jars for candy and other fun plates to put goodies on. Let me know if you have any stores or sites in mind! ♥

Cobalt and Black

September 27th, 2012

slacks: F21 (similar), shoes: Cathy Jean (similar), tee: Nordstrom, necklace: Bauble Bar, ring: Henri Bendel

Bright pants don’t only come in the form of jeans. Bright slacks, like these cobalt ones, are a welcome change from the normal black. I love being able to pair my more basic tops with fun pants like these. Pairing the bright cobalt pants with black is a perfect way to take this look to the office. Not only will this cobalt color look great on anyone, it will surely break you out of your jeans rut. ♥

Abbreviated Fashion Police: 2012 Emmys

September 24th, 2012

I didn’t have tons of time to write my review of the fashion from the 2012 Emmys, but couldn’t resist giving my 2 cents. Here is my abbreviated but efficient take on last nights red carpet looks:

wowza (as always)

neon done right

neon done wrong

fun, flawless, fab!

if this dress doesn’t make Ryan propose, what will?

never looked better!

just plain unattractive on all levels

train wreck in every way – the hair, the color, the fabric, oh my!

Wedge Sneakers

September 20th, 2012

1, 2, 3, 4, 5

I have been seeing wedge sneakers everywhere. It started when I spotted them on the Man Repeller awhile  back, but they are no longer a man repelling item. They were even everywhere in France when we visited a few weeks ago. I think they are a super fun and sassy way to mix up a look and I am carefully trying to select the perfect pair that will make a statement but go with multiple outfits. I plan on funking up skirts, regular skinny jeans and even leggings and oversized sweaters with these bad girls. Are you guys in on this trend or still think it is too far out there? ♥
