Metallic silver clutch

J.Crew metallic derby clutch in silver $69.50

Online shopping is quick and easy but takes away the fun of browsing the racks, touching the fabrics, and bringing an armful of clothes and accessories into the fitting room, even on the days when you have no intentions of making a purchase. I think this silver clutch may work well with my other bridal accessories so I'll give it a go. If not, it's quite easy to make a return or exchange at the store.

Glamour girl

My sister/MOH got me the lovely blue topaz noblesse earrings from David Yurman as a little something blue on my wedding day! I was able to pick them up today on my way back from a dress fitting. They are absolutely gorgeous and paired with my vintage rhinestone bracelet (ebay $20) and silver Manolos complete my old Hollywood glamour look. I'm still on the lookout for the perfect clutch to hold my day of necessities. And a rainy day is a great day to shop! (Really any day is a great day to shop though if you ask me)

7 weeks...

After spending a lovely weekend celebrating with F and S it's now time to get back to work on our wedding. Today I started by buying up candy for our favor table in our wedding colors: vanilla salt water taffy, yellow, white, and navy M&M's, lemon heads, blue raspberry gummi rings, lemon yellow gummi bears, coconut and pineapple jelly beans, blue raspberry Tootsie pops, and yogurt covered pretzels. Then I picked up a bunch of cellophane bags for the guests to fill up with the treats. And to top it all off I designed a sticker at Zazzle to seal the bags to take home.
I've got quite a bit on the "To Do" list, but I think I need to to take a break and run off those delicious wedding cupcakes from the fs affair!

For my future sister-in-law F

Thinking of my bridesmaid F today as she is getting married this Saturday. We had a bachelorette party for her last weekend and on my visit to her parents home in Maine I finally got to see some of the beautiful details of her event in person. I can't wait to celebrate with her and S this weekend!

Slow, slow, quick, quick

We had our first dance lesson with Alfredo at Super Shag on Wednesday night and it was fun! (although it was difficult to resist the urge to lead). N and I learned the foxtrot and signed up for a package of private lessons. His sister is getting married this weekend and I'm happy we managed to get one lesson in beforehand so we can practice our new steps!
