Posts from — November 2012
Can you believe November is just about over? It’s hard to believe that starting tomorrow, all holiday song listening and hot chocolate drinking commences (not like it hasn’t already!). But before that, I’m really excited to share with you Kent Meister Photography, our Featured Vendor for the month of November.
Kent is a New York-based photographer who started out as an actor in Oklahoma. His love for theatre, film and making pictures eventually led him to where he is now as a photographer. Looking through his portfolio, it’s obvious that Kent really has an eye for capturing the essence of a story.
Take a look through Kent Meister’s Photography website and you’ll know exactly what I’m talking about. Also, make sure to check out Kent’s blog. I’m especially loving this engagement shoot. Something about being photographed in the intimacy of your home speaks wonders.
It’s the most wonderful time of the year…when we get to pull out our oversized sweaters and chunky cardigans and feel like we’re wrapped in a blanket all day! We could just imagine how cute a bride would be wearing a big fisherman’s sweater over her wedding gown!
Candlesticks add such a romantic feel to your table. Whether it be at home or at your wedding, a little height when it comes to candles is always nice. Of course, when looking for random decor items, Etsy is probably your best bet. Here a few sets I found to be beautiful and reasonably priced.
Brass Candlesticks by Shop Pilgrim. $10.
Handmade birch slender candlesticks from Gothenburg Collection. $27.
Upcycled Taper Candlesticks from Deligato. $30.50.
Brass Tulip Candle Holders by Reclaimer. $15.
Whether we like to admit it or not, those last few episodes of Sex and The City, where Carrie finds herself alone in one of the most romantic cities wearing only the most fabulous clothing, are eternally engraved in our minds. At least that’s how I feel–am I alone here?! If we want to get down to specifics, this particular outfit has always been a source of inspiration for me. The whimsy. The fun. Ah, the tutu.
I’ve always wanted to wear a tutu around New York City. That had never happened until two weeks ago during my bridal shower. I figured, if there was EVER a time to wear a tutu, it would definitely be at my bridal shower brunch. After a few weeks of searching, I came across Alexandra Grecco’s lovely tulle skirt and decided it was the one. This was my chance to feel like a ballerina walking down the streets of the West Village. And, I went for it. To be honest, I did receive a lot of weird looks on the street. At first, I thought why are they looking at me like this? Don’t they know how fabulous my skirt is? Don’t they!?! But instead, I like to think they were admiring my lovely layers of tulle wishing they too could prance the streets of the city fulfilling all of their Carrie/Black Swan dreams.
I was thinking, how fun would it be to wear a tutu-esque dress for your wedding. Here a some dresses we carry at Lovely that I think would be perfect!
