The girls showed us a fashion preview at the premiere of Sex and the City 2 in New York city. I am in love with SJP's neon Valentino dress. The color is amazing. The movie had a 10 million dollar wardrobe budget  so I am sure we will have more fashion trends coming our way.

One more days ladies!!!!
Not only do I want her dress but I want her arms! Seriously!!

Hanging Fabulously

After coming across these personalized hangers I immediately called my brides. Before each wedding photographers will usually prep your dress for a few photos. These hangers are such a wonderful accent for those images. They are $25.00 and can be purchased from artist Lila Frances.

Shoes Day Tuesday

It is so hard for me to not post a pair of Christian Louboutins every Tuesday. These red bottom heels have become a fashion phenomenon.  Every female celebrity wears them, J.Lo is singing about them, and normal women are saving every penny they have to purchase a pair of these luxury shoes. I own two pair and if I could wear them everyday I would.

These specific heels are a popular wedding choice for brides.

Louboutins will cost you anywhere between $795-$2,400. 
These specific heels cost $795.00 available christianlouboutin

The Limited Wedding Collection

Today I've been working on an inspiration board and took a break to check my personal e-mail and found something kinda exciting. The limited is now coming out with a new Wedding & Events collection. The collection, featuring wedding gowns and bridesmaid dresses, debuts June 3rd. I'm very anxious to see what this collection will look like. The gowns will retails for $298 and bridesmaids $89.50

VP of design Elliot Staples described the emergence of bridalwear as an organic venture for the line. “Our customers are always telling us that they wear our dresses to weddings so this was a natural progression. We’re keeping the aesthetic the same–clean, classic and feminine–but now we’re able to capture a new part of the same customer’s life [her wedding day].”

Shoes Day Tuesday- Clearance edition!

If you have been keeping up with my Shoes Day Tuesday posts then you know my taste tends to lead me to expensive shoes. Magnets can't help which direction they go and neither can I. I always joke that if I went into a dollar store I would be lead to the one item that cost $2.00.

Designers are my weakness but I do love a steal. I am known to find fabulous things on sale and then I usually have a coupon as well (it’s like a game for me). Because of this I thought this week I would find a steal for S.D.T.

Aldo is having 25% off their clearance right now. I found these cute Venancio pumps normally $90.00 for only $33.74. And my coupon find is free shipping when using code FSNEWMAY10 at the checkout. Enjoy!

My love

Ever since I can remember I wanted to be a grown up. Like most girls, I would lay in bed and dream about how my life was going to be. I would play M.A.S.H. on the bus to determine who I was going to marry and what kind of car I would drive. Lucky for me I didn’t end up marrying Jonathon Taylor Thomas and I don’t drive a limo. Surpassing my dreams I met Kinsey. Not only is he my amazing husband but also my best friend. He knows he can make me laugh anytime he does his shoulder lean dance and always pulls it out when I need it most. He tells me he loves me at least 10 times a day, and never leaves for work without waking me up for a kiss. These are just a few of the million reasons I love him so much.

It’s the biggest blessing knowing that for the rest of my life I have someone in my corner to help me through whatever life throws my way. I cannot wait to continue our journey together.

Happy Birthday 29th Babe! I love you xoxo

My two loves

My semi-famous brother

My two favorite things to do while soaking in the sun; celebrity gossip and wedding magazines!! Now there are so many choose from its like being a kid in a candy factory. If looking for a good one pick up Columbus Bride this spring. Not only are many of my fabulous vendor friends in the magazine but so are Kinsey and I. Ashley Henry my friend/photography submitted our wedding last year hoping it might get picked up as a feature and it did! I can’t lie I was pretty excited but there is someone else who was more excited than me….my little brother Dylan.

Dylan was a hit at the wedding due to his insane dance moves. He is ten years old and has become a fan of watching Justin Timberlake and Michael Jackson videos on you tube. Just by watching he has become amazingly good. Columbus Bride printed a photo of him dancing for the feature and now he walks around telling everyone his famous (it’s so cute). I am hoping with his skills that maybe someday he will be and than he can take care of his big sister.

Check it out on pages 30 and 186
