Aw, guys! Thanks so much for your sweet as pie words on my first wedding recap. I’m so happy ya’ll want to read more about my big day! 🙂 And don’t worry, I’m sending all my submissions in this week so you’ll FINALLY see all the pictures soon!
Today’s purse is, literally, a DREAM. It’s blush, feathery and blingy, which encompass just about everything I’m obsessed with lately. Plus, it has such a vintage look and feel to it, which as ya’ll know, is the key to my heart. I swear, I was meant to be a flapper in the 20’s. Instead, I’m a product of the 80’s and now live in the 2000’s. BUT, that doesn’t mean I can’t still dress like I’m an extra in The Great Gatsby, right? I’m currently salivating over these amazingly 20’s inspired dresses.

Abbbbbbsolutely divine. I want that fourth one SO BADLY. I could totally justify it, right? I mean, it’s work appropriate? Maybe a casual Friday?
Obviously with a fabulous dress like that, you need a perfect purse to go with it. Enter the amazing blush, blingy beauty I was alluding to earlier. It hits me in all the right spots and would help create the most incredible Gatsby outfit ever. Oh, and it’s even more incredible next to a vintage inspired lace wedding gown.

Oh and it’s only a mere $88. What a dream.
Lately, I’ve seen some really unique ideas for guest books, and not on purpose either. As I’m perusing blogs and wedding sites, these fun and different guest book ideas just keep popping up! I took that as a sign, so I’m posting a few of my favorites. What I love about the guest book idea is that it’s so easy to personalize and make your own. Why have just a notebook when you can have one of these snazzy ideas instead?!

Ladies, brides to be and antique junkies, I know I’m not the only person to have a SEVERE addiction to this website of wonders. I stumbled upon Etsy just recently, and let me tell you, I won’t ever look back. I’ve found nearly all of the decor I plan to buy, inspirational ideas for lanterns and centerpieces, as well as some pretty amazing pieces of jewelry that will adorn my skin come March 25th. Below are my FAVORITE Etsy pieces of the moment that will, very shortly, find their place happily in my DC home.
