I can’t stop loving stop motion videos, so don’t try and make me.

When craigslist was producing highly undesirable results (why does your three years experience as a bank teller make you think you are the ‘perfect candidate’ for a bridal shop?) I decided to take it to the blog. Which I’m sure has you all saying ‘duh’ right about now. Please feel free to repost this ad and/or send to gals you think might be interested. Trust me, we are in for some good times, so we’d love for you to work at Lovely. To read the full listing on craigslist, click here.

It’s been a week of new brownstones and colorful boots for a couple of gals on the East Coast this week. Not only did Lovely announce our new storefront, but some great gals in DC announced their new collaborative space, The Hive at 1511. Congrats Ritzy Bee Events, Kate Headley Photography and Simplesong Design.
We want to dedicate today’s Lovely List to some of the gracious bloggers out there who welcomed Lovely this week. We realize how busy all of these amazing bloggers are, yet when we emailed many of them on Monday, we got loads of ‘congrats’ and ‘can’t wait to see it’ in return. Starting a new business can be daunting at times, so to get such a warm return is very encouraging and we would like to simply say thank you. It reminds us of the good old days when people encouraged each other in their prospects, and camaraderie and neighborly sentiments were common. Our extra special shout outs go to:
*Jacqueline at Merci New York. This girl has some style, and I’m guessing I should already plan a killer outfit for the day I meet her.
*Emily at Once Wed. We want to be a character in her blog on a daily basis. Her vision for the once wed dress was so amazing and we are excited to also offer brides alternatives to wedding debt.
*Amy from Wedding Chicks. This blog has spunk and I have a feeling hanging out with Amy would too.
*Christy at Junebug Weddings. A real veteran in this business and her polished style would make for a flawless wedding.
*Vane at Brooklyn Bride. I’m excited to have such a thoughtful wedding pro right across the bridge.
Sorry for the long list, but we thought you all deserved more than a link in our blogroll. You all make it a delight to enter the wedding business!
Chic simplicity, says it all. Jessica’s Oscar de la Renta dress stands out all on its own. With little make-up, no jewelry and undone hair, the natural beauty of the bride and the dress is undeniable. She looks timeless and effortless in both the dress and the setting. We just love the clean lines of the dress, no fuss. Paperwhites Photography captured the mood perfectly. To see tons more breathtaking photos and and read all about the wedding visit Perfect Bound.
The other day, the fiancé and I were discussing whether or not he should wear his glasses for the wedding. Since he can see well enough without them we came to the conclusion that he shouldn’t wear them. We thought about eye glass styles from the 70s and 80s and how dated they looked, and figured twenty years from now the styles will change again and we didn’t want to look back and think “oh how 2010!”
But today, dailycandy introduced an amazing glasses company, Warby Parker, and I might just need to re-think things. These glasses are super cool and perhaps its worth capturing the styles of our time in our wedding pictures.
Or take inspiration from Lisa Loeb on her wedding and be a bride in glasses!
How do you feel about a groom or bride in glasses? Anyone have to make a similar decision? Leave a comment!
