Obsession Du Jour: Parisien Stripes, Wildflower Bunches, & Royal Apothic Eau De Parfum


The past couple of weeks I can say without shame I have purchased 4 striped shirts. All with black (or dark navy nearly black) stripes in varying widths.

I stopped by Anthropologie a few days ago and sampled the new fragrance they are carrying, Royal Apothic Eau De Parfum - "Kensington Gardens" - OH MY GOODNESS, so obsessed! I need this on my new vanity TOMORROW!

And speaking of vanities, I've also been purchasing wildflower bunches from Trader Joes and placing little vases around the house full of these field blossoms. I love wildflowers for Summer and Fall, don't you?

Edit: The boots are from Coggles.com. Victorian style leather washed boots. ♥

DRESSING THE MOB: Tadashi Does It Right

I would want my mother to look stunning on my wedding day. So I love this dress by Tadashi (of course, Tadashi!). The color is incredible and the silhouette is fabulous for any MOB. Available at Nordstrom.

Wedding Church Music

A typical device for any wedding: organ If you are obtaining married inside a church, odds are that you will be getting an organ included inside your wedding songs. Obviously, you do not need to. You are able to select a piano or bring in other instruments. However the organ is what most couples select, partly simply because it is an very handy selection.

This really is why a lot of of my songs recommendations are organ pieces. It is merely probably the most commonly-used device.

How it functions The pipe organ was basically the world's very first synthesizer. This really is simply because it can make a broad range of seems, thanks to its helps prevent. These helps prevent manage air likely to various sets of pipes (every set can make a various audio).
"Pulling out a stop" indicates much more pipes will perform when a crucial is pressed.

Some churches have electronic organs instead of pipe organs. The audio could be but isn't usually comparable. The idea is nevertheless the exact same. For you personally, considering about a wedding, organs are organs. There is no actual distinction to become worried about.

The organ can perform numerous various designs of songs due to these helps prevent and also the range of seems they perform. Having the ability to perform numerous keyboards and pedals in the exact same time only raises this capability.

But it is not for all songs But some songs is not whatsoever suited for that organ. Just like a harp can technically perform notes from any piece of songs does not imply it is likely to audio great. A harp playing some thing composed for an electric guitar isn't heading to become quite.

Western Wedding Dresses

western-wedding-dressesWedding dresses come in a wide range of diversity. Designs, styles and fabrics change from one place to the next. Background and culture also have a say in the matter and can affect the overall theme of a wedding. That is the main reason why western wedding dresses vary a great deal from the Asian type. Nevertheless, they have a special role to play. Any two brides may not choose a similar type of a dress. Further, culture has an important role in deciding about the type of wedding dress that a bride is going to wear. Those brides who choose western wedding dresses need to consider the fabric, colors and accessories.

The most popular fabric across USA and Canada is satin due to the elegance, style and comfort provided by it. The color of such western wedding dresses should be chosen very carefully. It is important that the color of the bride's dress matches with that of the wedding location.

Daily Inspiration:The Lady's Boudoir

Every woman should have a boudoir. While the definition of a boudoir is a private room or dressing room, I like to think a boudoir could be a corner of your bedroom where you can go to pretty yourself up, powder your nose, spritz on some perfume...

There is a certain feeling that the word "boudoir" evokes. I always imagine lace, chiffons, pearls, delicate rosettes, tiny trinkets that glitter and sparkle in the sunlight.

Vintage Wedding Dresses

vintage-wedding-dressesVintage wedding dresses are an entirely different concept if one wants to be reminded of the old times.

Trends always repeat themselves except for the few changes that make the dresses a bit modern. Many couples want to keep their marriage simple and stylish; they want to stay away with the pinch of glamour and shine. So, the need arises of completely different wardrobe that goes with the theme.
vintage-wedding-dressesThis is precisely the essence of the vintage wedding dresses-they transport you back to a forgotten era!

The bride and groom taking the vow dressed in vintage wedding gowns and suits add drama to the entire ceremony. Then modern couples are increasingly choosing the castles or other historical palaces as their wedding venues and in that case, only a vintage wedding dress can do justice to the whole arrangement.

You can give those images to your designer. This is in fact the best one can do. Combining the vintage wedding dresses trends with new comfortable fabrics can give fruitful results.

Vintage Movies + Musicals: Hello, Dolly!

If you know me in person, you will know that I absolutely love musicals. I have a Pandora station devoted to showtunes. And sometimes I have an insane urge to pas de bouree down the street.

One of my favorite musicals is "Hello, Dolly!" with Barbara Streisand. It's so jovial and fun and the songs are beyond catchy (you might recognize them from Wall-E). The dance numbers are also super fantastic as they should be since the movie is directed by none other than the amazingly talented Gene Kelly!

The costumes in this 1969 movie are WONDERFUL. The colors are very reminiscent of the late 60s, lots of tans, muted pastels, cream with brown and black. I forgot to screencap the outfits before I returned it to Netflix, but perhaps you can find some around the internet.

In fact, there doesn't seem to be any one trend, other than to have fun, and no right or wrong when it comes to style and statement.

In addition, tea-length dresses are another 1950's inspired look ideal for petite brides interested in less formal, fun afternoon weddings, while mini dresses are one of the "hottest" trends this year.

Vintage Streetstyle | The 1960s | A Woman Named "Ty"

I have never in my life been so inspired by a complete stranger, let alone a stranger that lived some 50 years ago and probably does not know her found photographs have been scanned on the internet and shared for people to admire.

These are photos of Ty. A wife of a bloke, is he American, is he European, is he Australian? We don't know. But he seems to adore his wife very much as most of the photographs were of her looking impeccably put together while they travel through Hong Kong in the 1960s.

Is it weird to say I want photos like these of me? Candid moments that perhaps in the distant future someone will blog about and think "Wow, this woman had such style, I wish I was her!"

Red Wedding Dress

red-wedding-dressWhite and off white is still what most get when they go to buy a wedding dress, but don't think that is what you have to get if you want to get something a little different. Some wedding dresses come in colors like pastel pink, yellow, and even black. Some of the most stunning items on the market today might just be the many varieties of red wedding dress. If you want something different and bold, red may be just what you seek for your special day.
red-wedding-dressThe red wedding dress is not necessarily new, but many brides are afraid to wear them. For the most part, the ones that do go with red will get a white dress that has red accents on it. That is okay, and is a great look if you want something with a splash of color. On some dresses, the red is the stitching and detail work, and for others there may be a sash or perhaps a red skirt under mountains of white tulle so the red is not overwhelming.
red-wedding-dressYou do not have to be subtle with the red if you do not want to do so. Your imagination may be conjuring up images of a red wedding dress that is not that flattering, but you may be surprised to see what is out there. These do not look like overly fluffed prom gowns. They look very much the part of a wedding dress, but are more bold than the standard white or off white. Most of them are quite stunning.

You can have red in your wedding without having to buy a red wedding dress. If you like them, but you feel they are just not what you want, you can always dress your bridesmaids in stunning red dresses (Ollie Vance).
