BHLDN ~ Part Deux


Behold my heart…

As if the dresses weren’t pretty enough, Anthropologie’s BHLDN collection brings us stunning shoes and accessories to complete the look.


To cover-up a girls bare shoulders on the big day, could these Bolero’s be any cuter?  I fancy the Primrose Bolero, by Quillaree, above because of its ultra feminine raw-edged floral design and delicate blush color.  It would flatter any skin tone.    

The Bow-Topped Bolero, by Hitherto, to the left has a sweet Victorian flare with a modern twist.     






May sound strange, but this photo makes me want to paint.  It’s been a while since I’ve brought out the easel and acrylics (okay, years), but this colorful array of fashion delights may just give me the inspiration I need.  It’s like candy for the soul.  Purple and green and pink, oh my.








I digress.  I’ve always been drawn to this shade of green – the Emerald Fields Kisslock Clutch is charming and vintage inspired.  The tuck away strap transforms it into a shoulder bag. 

20642955_004_aThe Gilded Trillium Kisslock Clutch is my favorite bag in the collection.  Made with the softest grey lambskin and topped with a corsage of brass and pearl flowers, it has just enough room for phone and lipstick.









The BHLDN collection features amazing head pieces as well.  The Languid Bow Headband, by Ban.Do, to the left has a fantastic 50’s style and would be perfect for a cocktail length dress. 


20614442_069_aI’m really smitten with the lovely Feathered Petals Headband by James Coviellio, which would be a beautiful finishing touch for  bridesmaids.  The rose shade shown here is exquisite and a perfect complement to neutral shades and browns.  I think it also would provide a nice pop to a rich green or purple.  Heck, I think I may buy this one to wear w/my spring & summer dresses.






This playful photo perfectly illustrates the whimsical feel of the Pompom Rose Headband by Pomp & Ceremony

A colossal collection of raw-edged cotton voile petals perch atop a Liberty of London wrapped band.  And it looks yummy with the gold dress.




Last, but not least, can we talk shoes?

What I would describe as the “perfect Cinderella shoe,” the Threshhold Slingback by Something Bleu, is delicate and supremely romantic with the addition of Festooned shoe clips from Twigs & Honey.  The 4-inch pleated silk-satin peep-toes hide a half-inch platform inside, adding a little height and comfort. 

And about Twigs & Honey…I highly recommend checking out their site for more incredible finds.  


I love the classic style of the Beaded Brocade Slingback by Rada.  Tied with a grosgrain bow and topped with subtle embroidery, this pointy-toe pair is  sleek and softly feminine.









Oppositely, the Moonlit Peep-Toes are a sexy classic by Something Bleu.  I loved the sweet touch that the pompom clips add to this look.  Also really shows the versatility of this shoe.

Charming and classic, the shoe also comes in ivory and saffron, which are exclusive colors for BHLDN.       



I could not resist the vintage style and fitting name of the “Elopement Pumps.”  The robin's-egg-blue leather slip-ons by Hey Lady have no shortage of detail.

I just love the scalloped edges around the back and tip of the shoe and the pretty pattern that lines the inside.  These are charmers and would be perfect for a bride-to-be to wear to one of her special parties leading up to the big day.



So, can you believe I’m still not done covering BHLDN?  How can I stop here when there is still jaw-dropping jewelry to talk about and we certainly can’t leave out the delicate underpinnings.  Stay tuned for more.
