Vintage Look for Less March 8, 2009


dress belt buckle earrings shoes veil/fascinator

All of this for only $286.42? I saw this gorgeous chiffon dress with beaded cap sleeves and immediately thought what a statement it would make on a vintage inspired bride. This look would require a somewhat crafty touch, but I think fashioning a belt out of ribbon and an antique belt buckle ($14) and turning bits of rescued tulle, netting, and flowers ($12) into something like this would be so worth the challenge:

    This is somewhat off topic but your blog is one of three wedding blogs I still keep on my feed as I am now married. It is a good reminder that cool people live in Columbus, something I need to be reassured off when considering moving back.

    Thought you would enjoy this if you haven’t seen it already.

      Thanks so much! Where are you considering moving from? I know I still get homesick for Seattle a lot, but there’s so much to love about Columbus (except the total lack of geography of course) that I really love living here.

      And I hadn’t read that article, thanks for the link! A lot of my favorites are already on there, and some more I’ll have to try 🙂

    Toxicity is big concern when picking toys for infant and toddlers, as they would tend to chew on their toys for long periods of time, especially teething babies. The arena can be on any flat surface. The first essential for the child’s development is concentration.
