Behold my heart…
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.
The 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.
I’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.
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.
And now for the perfect bridesmaid shoe, the lush, nearly glowing silk satin Bow-Topped Slingback from Something Bleu.
Charming and classic, the shoe also comes in ivory and saffron, which are exclusive colors for BHLDN.
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.
