Schone dresses

I am digging this dress by Schone. A little expensive for bridesmaids, but I think it could make an awesome less traditional wedding dress for a casual outdoor wedding (it’s also available in many other colors.) Or, alternatively, it might be the perfect piece to buy just so that you can live in it all [...]

I’d really like someone (apparently a size 4 someone, as it’s a sample) to wear this dress to their wedding: Cassandra gown from Leanimal, $1285 I’m definitely having a non-white wedding dress moment these days, and sea foam green seems like a sort of particularly lovely option, no? Also “The skirt is draped so perfectly [...]

Ann Taylor Weddings

I love wedding dresses from unexpected places. Like this Silk Strips Gown from Ann Taylor, which is gorgeous in both colors: Also? It’s less than $400. Awesome. In fact, their entire wedding collection is under $1000, with most of it being well under. Rad. images: Ann Taylor

So, I have preface this by saying that overall I am not enamored with BHLDN, Anthropologie’s much touted new-ish wedding line. Mainly because I find it way overpriced, and secondly because I feel like it’s quickly become (or started out as?) another arm of the indie-WIC conspiracy to make you feel like your wedding needs [...]

maxi dress

Crew: left: Doria Dress right: Summerstock maxidress In general, I find J. Crew clothes to be overpriced for their overall quality, and these [...]

If you’re going traditional with your bridesmaids, I’m kinda digging the simple bridesmaid dresses from LulaKate. In the right colors, some of them seem like actually might be wearable again*… on left: the Ashley, on right: the Pam *most dresses that are official “bridesmaid dresses” are decidedly, really, when it actually comes down to it, [...]

Have you seen Miss Natalie‘s new line Canoe yet? Featuring vintage American work wear along with hand tooled leather goods, it’s really great stuff. At the moment I’m particularly eyeing this keychain – I think my keys could use a makeover for summer. (what? you don’t accessorize your keys seasonally?) I miss running into Natalie [...]
