Stunning. Gorgeous. Mesmerizing. Sometimes, it’s all about the back!
As much as we go gaga for bridal gowns, we know that looking good as a guest at a wedding is just as important. With fall weddings in full force, we love the cardigans and coats, jewel tones and boots. You just might upstage the bride (just kidding, you could never…or could you…)

Mercury glass has had its moment. Don’t get me wrong, I love the look of it but everywhere I turn there seems to be mercury glass jars filled with lovely things. I think its time for mercury glass to step aside and let copper have its moment. I was recently gifted a set of copper pots as an early wedding gift and as they hang in my kitchen, they seem to brighten up the whole kitchen and add a bit of a rustic feel.
Have you heard Oxblood is the color of the season? Well, this is according to many of the fashion blogs I read. Nonetheless, I’ll take it! Oxblood is such a great, sultry color for fall. There’s nothing like wearing a comfy white tee, jeans and a bold dark red lip. What I considered my “lazy” look now seems to be right on trend! However, oxblood isn’t just for your casual days, here are a few ways to translate oxblood into the bridal world. Some may think oxblood is too harsh for bridal but when done right, this color can leave a subtle impression. (Global Street Snap)
I already mentioned oxblood lips as a great option for a pepping up a casual look but this lip color would also look fabulous with an ivory colored dress. It would be a great option for those wishing to channel a 1920′s look and feel. (China Vogue)
Oxblood nails. Enough said. (Jaques Loves)
When looking for oxblood colored flowers, just ask to see dark red flowers. Sift through your choices and pick the most subdued of reds and you’ll be as close to oxblood red as you can be. (Viedka)
