Anthropologie Bridesmaids Dresses February 13, 2009

I know I know I’m on a bridesmaids dress rampage these days. I just get so excited about ideas and unique alternatives to the typical dresses we’re use to seeing. This leads me to another favorite store that’s also a great source for some really cute dresses – Anthropologie!

Paula, one of my really close friends/bff/maid of honor and I were having this discussion about what store we thought defined our styles the most. Our styles are quite different. For her I picked bebe, because Paula’s taste is very modern, sexy, and contemporary. For me, I would definitely have to choose Anthropologie. Its earthy, feminine, dainty, bohemian, classy, and girly clothing, accessories, and even furniture completely epitomizes my taste and style. My earthy, capricorn self feels right at home when I walk into one of their stores.  Let’s oogle some bridal parties dressed in Anthropologie.

In comparison to the cookie-cutter styles designed for bridesmaids, these Anthropologie dresses definitely have some character don’t ya think ? How do you like these Anthro dresses and what store represents your style?

Have a great Valentine’s Day weekend everyone! JD has our date planned so I’m excited to see what’s in store. I’m also looking forward to feature a guest blogger to share with you next week! =)

So I was perusing Nate and Jaclyn’s blog from The Image Is Found and my eyes skimmed and came to a halt when they landed on this fantastical, dreamlike wedding.

Star Motif December 3, 2008

So I recently received a wedding invitation from two special friends getting hitched very soon and I’ve been lookin’ forward to sharing this creative design. Luckily for Jasmine, her fiance, Mike is one talented graphic designer. He just started his own design business at Well Versed Media and was able to design all their wedding-related media including their invites.

Mike and Jasmine derived their wedding style inspiration from Hollywood by incorporating a star motif. I think the plum, olive, and silver colors they chose create a winning color palette.  3 unique details of their invitation enthralled me when I opened the envelope and Mike and Jasmine chuckled after I unconsciously awed it out loud like a kid seeing fireworks for the first time.

Third detail: Surprise! How cool is that and how cute is this couple? I really like their engagement photo too and the urban feel of it! =)

I just had to ask Mike what was his inspiration for this creative idea and he said, “For the cut-out, I wanted to take it back and bring back “pull out/pop up” style books. You know the kind that you loved as a kid? You pull the tab and there’s a surprise. I remember always being so anxious to see what was behind after I had pulled the tab.”

If childhood is not the best inspiration for any art form, I don’t know what is – that’s my opinion.

Mike, I don’t even want to ask how long it took you to make these invitations, but your labor of love sure did pay off. Lookin’ forward to your guys’ wedding! ; )

Check in soon! All these stars got me seein’ somethin’ else and that’s another post in itself……
