Two Web Belles: Going For The Gold

1. Sure, every groom deserves a medal on his wedding day for snagging such a lovely bride. But with this find from etsy, you can actually wear one on your lapel. This accessory is a dignified, stately boutonniere alternative that still keeps things loose and a bit tongue-in-cheek. We're fans.

2. There are so many ways to add some sparkle to your wedding day look, right from the tip of your head down to your freshly painted toes. And with products like Bella Via and Hair Flairs, we are literally talking about starting out the bling-fest with the hair on your head. These all come in a variety of colors, but we thought the gold was the most subtle (or as subtle as you can get when you’re talking about shimmery tresses.) What do you think? Is this a statement worth making yourself, or one better left for Mrs. Jay-Z on the Grammy red carpet (that's where we first remember seeing this ourselves)?

3. This necklace is too darn cute. It's a mini pendant typewriter that reads, "Just My Type". Grooms-to-be reading this blog you owe us a big thank you! This is the perfect wedding gift for your new bride, especially if she's a writer or loves anything vintage inspired. Did we mention it's Kate Spade (total brownie points) and priced under $100?

4. Gold dresses get a bad rap, probable because of crinkly, flamboyent eighties numbers like the ones pictured below. Don't let fashion misdemeanors of decades gone by (it's okay, we rocked the mall hair to kindergarten, too) rule out gold for your girls. When it's done right, gold is universally flattering, timeless, and complements white perfectly. Bonus - it works for any season, depending on the weight of the fabric.

5. Looking for some gold décor but don't want to splurge with solid gold prices? We set out to find some pieces that could be incorporated into a wedding day and then used around the house. Of course we didn't have to look much further than Target to score these great finds, which include (clockwise from top left) table numbers, bowls, a sunburst mirror, and a heart-motif wall sconce.


  1. One woman in that blurred out pic looks like she is sporting my hair in high school. Poor thing (and, no it WAS NOT me).

    - Your sister

  2. Ah yes, I remember that hair VERY was either during or a bit after the era of my Dutch boy/bowl cut.

  3. can anyone tell me where the chiffon top/gold dress on the right can be found, they are perfect for what i need! thanks!!

  4. The dress is an Alvina Valenta, style number AV9033

  5. thank you so much girl!
