Bridal Style: Short & Sweet

I’m a big fan of short wedding dresses (heck I wore one myself!) and this sweet elopement photographed by Lacie Hansen features an adorable dress by BCBG.

Accesorized with these black bow shoes which I’m totally obsessed with (similar here), a bouquet of anenomes, and you’ve got one chic black and white wedding day look.

The subtle trim detail on the bodice adds just the right amount of texture.

So, would you rock a short wedding dress on your day?

Home Style: Versailles

Continuing my wanderlust for France is a virtual tour of Versailles… Um, how amazing is the pattern of the stone? I love the geometry in contrast to the ornate facade.

I die for this chair and this bed. This is perhaps the most perfect french canopy ever.

Even the stairs are so pretty I could hang out on one of these landings any day. And the stables? The stone vault and beautiful wood details, make me very jealous of the horses who call this home. These photos are from the book¬†Versaille: A Private Invitations, which will be coming home with me soon, I’m sure!

Out of the Office + Projects Galore

Sorry for being MIA last Friday. I was in LA gathering props for a project. I’ve been using these images as inspiration for the project; I love a large hat paired with classic black and white. That look never goes out of style.

I’ll be out of the office until next weekend working on this project plus a few others…

Aqua + Pink = Chic

I’ve been gathering inspiration photos to finally decorate my house. It always seem like I’m getting somewhere and then wedding season hits… But this year, I will finally finish darn-it! So far I’m loving the cheery combo of aqua and pink. I just think its so fun and playful, how could you ever be bummed in a space like this? I especially love how the darker wall color actually calms the aqua of the sofa, if it were against a white wall it might be too much.

And oh, to have a proper vanity to put all sorts of pretty things. I love the way the black and white floor anchor the light blue vanity and pale pink chair. The bungalow I’m in is so small and the bathroom, well it might very well be the smallest on earth.

I love the punch of aqua in the lamp bases, I actually have a similar thing going on, but I desperately need new lampshades. Finding simple, tall, skinny white cylinder shades seems to be the hardest thing to find. The dainty floral on the pillows is a bit to frou-frou for me, but I do love that simple khaki headboard. And, oh yes, I will gladly take those aqua slippers any day.
