With ten months until my wedding, my next step is to figure out invitations. While everyone (aka my family!) is pushing me to go with a formal invite, I’m kind of leaning towards a hand drawn invitation. I love how personal they look. And the fact that I can do the initial design myself and then have the design printed.

Can I really be blamed for wanting such a cute invite?
I’m in love with Erin Fetherston and Charlotte Taylor’s Spring 2012 collections. Both take fun patterns and pair them up with textures to create the most covetable collections. It would be hard not to pack every single item in your suitcase.
If you are one of the many that nearly died when seeing Vogue’s profile on Erin Fetherston’s PERFECT APARTMENT, you already know the gal has got style. Her Spring 2012 collection is the perfect example of all that is Erin Fetherston. Light colors. Lace. A bit of color. Swoon.
Now, I don’t know much a bout Charlotte Taylor but the second I stumbled upon this collection, I was in love. Don’t those silk pieces look super comfortable? The patterns also happen to be amazingly awesome. I’m thinking any honeymoon spent in Central or South America is not complete without this collection in your suitcase.
Get packing, ladies!
What’s Black, White, and Red all over? The Oscar’s are by far my favorite awards show of the year, and a very exciting night for fashion. Imagine my surprise when the most popular color choice of the night was Bridal White! There were also some black gowns that made a stunning contrast on the red carpet. Here are my favorite picks of the night!
Angelina Jolie has been killing it this year on the red carpet, and this black velvet Atelier Versace gown is my favorite so far.
Jessica Chastain in a classic gold and black Alexander McQueen gown.
Milla Jovavich in a Lovely favorite, Elie Saab.
At first I was confused by Gwyneth Paltrow’s cape, but stopped caring once I took in the entire, seamless look by Tom Ford.
Bless Octavia Spencer not only for her amazing acting skills, but also for knowing how to dress her curves! She looks to die for in Tadashi Shoji.
Rooney Mara is in my mind the best dressed star of the year. I was most excited to see what she would be sporting on the red carpet, and she did not disappoint in this gown by Givenchy. Did I mention that she picked it the morning of the awards? Bravo my dear!
I am always a sucker for a modern dress, and the combination of art deco inspiration and nude accents on this dress make me green with envy.
