Hi, loves! So… Thanksgiving is less than a week away, temps are dropping over the weekend (maybe even a dusting of snow?) and I’m getting more and more antsy to turn on Christmas music on full blast. All day. With this version of Santa Baby on repeat. Ah, the holiday season: the time for Christmas themed wedding ideas, sequined accessories, delicious desserts, hot cocoa, chic cocktails (+ mocktails), and glamorous gifts for loved ones. Speaking of… I was browsing Emma Gordon London recently and couldn’t help but ooh and aah over the chic + sparkly wedding party bags in her collection. These make excellent wedding party bags for the holiday especially, with gold sequin, sparkly cobalt blue, and glittery black bags available. If you’re planning a holiday wedding — or your bridesmaids are wearing little black bridesmaid dresses — consider these party bags for their wedding gift. After all, it’s a gift they can use for the wedding day… and beyond. PLUS, we’re in the gift-giving spirit ourselves, so read on to see how you can win a little something for your stocking! Enjoy!

Hi, loves! So, I’ve been browsing the collection of bridal clutch bags over at Sara C and I’m finding it impossible to pick a favorite. Each clutch is handmade and you can even have custom-embroidery on the lining (like “best. day. ever.”). Plus, each bag features pretty adornments like silk, ivory lace, a brooch accent, ostrich feathers, and more. It doesn’t get much better than that! I thought maybe you could help me pick a favorite… who knows, you might even win one from the collection! ;) Read on to get the full scoop…
Bridal Clutch Bags
Let’s be honest: the Ella rates pretty high on my list. Best Day Ever? Royal blue lining? Light blue flowers on the outside as your “something blue”? Chic ivory lace? This is one pretty little package.

Good morning, sweethearts! We’re kicking off this lovely Tuesday with a little mint wedding inspiration. Mint is said to be ‘the wedding color of the year’ and for good reason: mint green is an incredibly soft, versatile shade which can be applied to any detail of your wedding. If you’re plan to add mint to your palette, use sparingly and complement with a neutral shade like ivory or cream for best results. We’ve rounded up a few of our newest favorite mint finds (all handmade, of course!) to inspire you. Take a peek and let us know… what do you think of mint? Would you use this shade in your color palette?
Mint Wedding Inspiration
First up, this mint bow clutch is one of my favorite purses to date. Handmade by Brighter Day, this bag is perfect for the bride-to-be or her ‘maids. Plus, I give it double points for being fashionable even after the wedding.

Hi, loves! Question: have you heard of Brighter Day? Whitney, the designer behind this amazing brand, puts her whole heart into each beautiful accessory. She loves custom orders and she even donates 10% of her proceeds to a good cause.
