Oscar Red Carpet Favourite:: Marchesa

I figured everyone would be posting all of the dresses from last night's Oscars but I just want to post photos of these two impeccably dressed women, Hailee Steinfeld and Halle Berry. They were both dressed by Marchesa... and I'm in love.

As I could see either one meandering down a wedded aisle I thought I would wander over to their website and immerse myself in the fluff and frill from the Marchesa bridal collection from last year.

Love it. Love them all. Love, love, love.

Flatware Fetish

I would not have said I had a fetish for flatware before today but, when I caught a glimpse of these babies, the fetish blossomed. Love these. Love!

Cake Monkey Bakery

I want to go to LA right now. The shopping, the weather, Disneyland, Hollywood, the celebrities and the Oscars are coming up next weekend. But really, right now, I would hop on a plane to get me some cake. Specifically, this six inch Chocolate Caramel Cake with Carmelized Rice Krispies from Cake Monkey Bakery.

And while I would love to eat this cake all in one sitting {I wouldn’t}, these adorable mini layer cakes might be better on the waistline {I would}.

Then there are their adorable and delectable snack treats like Yo-hos and Pop Pies and Inside Out S'Mores ::

And look how fancy! The application of Cake Monkey's cakes is endless. Showers, engagement parties, bridesmaid teas, rehearsal dinners, dessert buffets and favours. Deliciously fabulous.

Today is my Mom's birthday - happy birthday Mom!

In honor of her special day I thought I would post a few photos of mother daughter moments but it proved to be more difficult than I thought. i don't normally go in search of photos {because you never find what you're looking for} but the lack of captured moments between a bride and her mom was a little disappointing. There are plenty of moments of brides and their Dads walking down the aisle and sharing the first dance but Mom kind of gets left out. I'll tell you why I'm so sensitive to this, I'll always regret it, I only have a couple of candid photos of me and my mom from our wedding, we forgot to get something formal. So, let's use this as a reminder, make sure you capture all of those special photos of all the special people in your life.

I did find a few amazing moments::

Mom and Dad are in Arizona for the winter and I miss them both terribly - I can't wait until you come home! More!


BHLDN Accessories

This is a small sweet taste of the BHLDN Cover-Ups, Lingerie, Hair Adornments, Jewelry and other Accessories. I'm not going to lie, and even though I'm already married, I want all of these items, they're just so pretty!

Lastly, for the loveliest teaser of all the goodness, "A cascade of close-ups that captures some of our favorite details" set to the sweetest music - Prelude to BHLDN.


BHLDN Shoes + Shoe Clips

The shoes. The shoes. The shoes. Of course, I thought they were going to be fabulous but the line of BHLDN shoes and shoe clips are absolutely de-licious! To borrow a couple descriptives from their website, you will find this collection flouncy and shimmer-kissed.

Accessories to come!

BHLDN Dresses

My previous post was for the new line of B H L D N wedding gowns - can we say "~dreamy~". This post is dedicated to the new line of BHLDN bridesmaid dresses. Each piece is absolutely lovely and fresh, fresh, fresh. I am in love with the Gin Fizz Shift which is number three on the top row below...

Later I'll have shoes {of course!}, and the rest of their accessories!


Anthropologie has launched a new wedding shop called B H L D N, pronounced “beholden”. I be holdin my breath {wink} - every design is a vision.

Ensure you click through to see the rest of the gowns.

Stay tuned for bridesmaid dresses, shoes, accessories and more!
