Instagram Update…

I’m still here, I promise! This past month and the one ahead are all about prepping for the big day… every weekend from here on out is packed with to-do’s and celebrations! Exciting, but tiring and I’m afraid my poor blog has taken the brunt of the neglect =/ I wanted to keep you all in the loop with an instagram recap… thank you so much for checking back in and hang in there, I hope to be drawing again soon!!

The past three weeks in review…

4. Gorgeous flowers from the shower
5. Vintage photos of my Grandmother, the top two are from her wedding day
6. Bachelorette girls weekend with my BFF of 23 years included Ladurée (of course!)
7. A trip to Bergdorf’s was also a must
8. The ING marathon front runners just steps from our apartment
9. Tea cups… just received my first two and have started my own collection!

These sweet treats from the bridal shower were amazing… the hostess and dear family friend, Sue outdid herself! Marie Antoinette would have been jealous!! =)

Have a great week, I hope to be back here soon!

Oscar Worthy…

Oscar de la Renta Fall 2013 BridalFinally, I’m back in business… It was a month ago yesterday that my DF (dear fiancé!) popped the question and since then, all my free time has been spent wedding planning. I’m fully absorbed in choosing a venue and booking a date. Once that’s settled, I figure I can breathe a bit easier…

On Friday evening, I stopped by Bergdorf Goodman’s bridal salon to have a peek at Oscar de la Renta’s Fall 2013 bridal trunk show. I was able to see the gorgeous lace, layers, and beading up close and personal! The gowns were breathtaking and just as ethereal in real life… a girl can certainly dream =)

Have a great start to your week!

P.S. – If you’re in the New York area, be sure to check out Bergdorf’s windows… they’re Instagram worthy!

Garnet Beauty…

Garnet Beauty: Jimmy Choo for Bergdorf'sA couple of weeks ago I opened my mailbox to find the 111th Anniversary edition of Bergdorf Goodman’s magazine waiting for me… and I’ve been pouring over its glossy pages ever since.

A multitude of designers created special pieces to signify the event and this gorgeous Jimmy Choo shoe is one of them. It’s so decadent, I just had to have my own… even if it is just a drawing!
