just sayin’: headpiece hell

ok, wedding dilemma! i fell in love with a headpiece – a headpiece that costs as much as rent, a mortgage, some dresses even.

here it is:


and then there is me, finding out (after falling in love with it) that it is $1250.



now, i knew this was crazy, but then i fell into the “but i’ll never be photographered more, you only do this once, etc.” trap. luckily, i snapped out of it, and began the ‘finding a cheaper option’ search.

first up, bhldn:

belt 2


belt 1


i like the idea of wearing a belt on my head. so, i took these two with me to my dressing fitting in atlanta – they are both super reasonable ($200 – $300). with the direction of the queen bee (momma latifi) we landed on the second one.

but then….

belt 3


i found this one at anthro….it’s only $48

so, i decided to go with it and return the other two, but then…..

head piece

i found this one at bhdln. i’m so confused!


just sayin’: bridesmaid dresses

it’s a wedding post!

remember once upon a time when i found the most perfect bridesmaid dresses and thought it was too good to be true…well, it was. but, this time we’re for real.

after a blunder with trying to buy off the rack, we’re using weddington way. it’s basically the facebook of bridesmaid dress shopping. you pick a dress or two, add it to your showroom – and then invite your bridal party to view, discuss, and like. not only is it free, but the dresses i picked we’re about $50 less through weddington way!

here’s what we’re going with:

1. my sisters’ amazing ml monique lhuillier one-shoulder floral-print gown; purchased on gilt



and these two donna morgan ’emily’ dresses in complimentary colors:




and it goes a little something like this:

BM Dresses - blog.001


i love how the dresses structural tie together, and dare i say resemble my top secret dress?
