Step Out From the Ordinary

Can I just say that I am loving that the bridesmaid look is gravitating towards the more casual end? It's not all about being matchy matchy in taffeta and satin anymore, and brides are branching out towards fun Anthropologie-esque florals and prints. Wouldn't your bridesmaid appreciate a dress they can wear again and again? Check out this dress from Allison Wonderland's fabulous collection for some inspiration!
P.S. If you're looking for a Christmas present for me, this would be it. Only 7 1/2 more shopping months left to do it!

Carrie Had Her Manolos, but What About the Vegans?

Finding vegan (no animal skins and the like) shoes can be challenging. You could stick with the cheap brands, and Target is a great choice for this. Sometimes the "pleather" and plastic just leaving you asking for more. What if you want to splurge for a high quality shoe, say for a wedding, who do you turn to then? Enter, Olsen Haus.

Check out these beauties:
The Karma in faux suede. Faux suede!!

Grace 2. Did I mention that the colors are customizeable?

Alright, so this one isn't exactly bridal, but guests can have their fun too. This one would be perfect for the summer with a fun maxi dress. Tres chic, oui?

A Bittersweet Ending

Alright guys, so tomorrow is my last wedding before I go on another long DOC hiatus. I know I'm going to miss it, and I'll be itching to get back into the game really badly. Let's see how long I'll be able to hold out.

In the meantime, I'm excited for tomorrow. I don't know if I could fall asleep tonight. I'll need the rest, it's going to be a long day full of flowers and fun glassware. Do I seriously get paid to play? Seriously, I'm one lucky girl.

I am hoping to have some new pillow designs in the shop in a couple weeks. Having only 9 functioning fingers at the moment sort of delays productivity. Don't you just hate how that works? Everybody pray for my pinkie to heal faster!

Have a good night and a safe weekend, ya'll.
