Paris on our mind

With Paris fashion week coming to a close and a rainy day in Houston, we are day dreaming of all things French!

We could not agree more with Audrey!

Love this palette: pale french blue, barely blush, soft white, gold leaf. It sums up our Parisian mood right now! These colors would make for beautiful wedding.

Dior Fashion Show: loving all of the pale grey dresses

Paris in the Spring!

Can't make it to Paris? Order Laduree macaroons from the NYC store for a special treat. Better yet, treat your wedding guests to these wonderful confections by having them as favors!

Create a Parisian themed invitation for your wedding.

With Valentine's Day around the corner, we couldn't help but feel warm and fuzzy inside once we saw the amazing new spring bridal collection from BHLDN. The dresses are unique and every single one of them has that certain romantic feeling to it. And who doesn't love lace?

Not only do they have the perfect, idyllic, fairytale dresses but they have gorgeous bridesmaids dresses, accessories and if you're already looking for a Valentine's Day card for the one you love then this may be the place for you!

These are just a few of our favorite dresses that made us fall in love! And we couldn't help but throw in the Mr. & Mrs. chair covers because they're way too cute to leave out!

Good luck ladies…

I love everything about LOVE…  I am pretty sure that most women feel the same way.  It attracts us like nothing else. I wonder if that is the reason I can not seem to walk away from all of the sparkle and allure of gemstones and metals and the creative nature that jewelry allows us to feel. Something in the way it moves in the light or curves against your neckline. It might seem a little sappy but I can honestly tell you that designing jewelry makes me feel that way. The only thing that lifts my spirit more are the people that adore what I make…  When somebody receives that perfectly wrapped box that has moved through cities, terminals and many hands, I can see them opening this box and hoping that their face lights up in anticipation of…. “It it everything I dreamed of”.  That is my goal for every Bride, Bridesmaid or Woman just looking for that perfect something to make them smile and say, yes, that is exactly what I wanted… That is what makes my day in this business. Happiness is everything…
