If The Shoe Fits…

…Get Fit With The Shoes!

You know I’m all about high heels and pretty little shoes.  However, if you’re looking to show off those legs of yours with a fabulous pair of heels on your wedding day (or any day!), consider getting these shoes which I guest blogged about this week on the Wishpot.com Wedding Blog

The Fit Flop from Victoria’s Secret:

Get a workout while you walk around. Engineered to engage muscles, lessen joint impact and absorb shock, these flip-flops burn calories and tone legs with every step.” – V.S.

Victorias Secret Patent Walkstar III flip flops 59 95

Reebok Easy Tone Shoes:

With built in balance pods, the Reebok EasyTone will help you firm and sculpt your legs and rear while you go about your busy day.  These balance pods create a naturally unstable platform as you walk, causing your muscles to activate and adapt.” – Reebok

With all of the running around and shopping brides do with wedding planning, shoes like these are the perfect way to get fit in time for your wedding day, even if you feel you don’t have the time to excersize.  Hot legs, nice butt?  These are great for any fabulous multi-tasking woman!

Above is a photo of my mom’s chihuahua Minnie, dressed to the nines, just like my bridesmaids!  Hey, she was one of the girls too!  My, did she prove it – can you believe she got right in there with all of us girls and posed for every photo with a smile?  It was the sweetest thing.

A New DIY Idea Unveiled…

with 7 comments

…The Stylish Unveil!

For me, wearing a veil on my wedding day completed the look I used to dream of as a little girl.  However, veils aren’t for everyone!  So if you’re not the veil-wearing type of bride, consider this stylish look instead…

…With a little DIY inspired creativity, all you would need to achieve this stylish couture look is a piece of tulle to tie around your neck and a lovely brooch to add that little bit of sparkle.  Can it get any easier or any more affordable than this?  I love it!

The Pink Dress, The Red High Heels…

…Together, In Gorgeous Harmony!

 Recently, Priscilla of Boston launched their 2010 Spring line.  Down the runway walked a model wearing a pale pink dress paired with sexy red shoes.  Ever since, I’ve been totally inspired by this color combo, so I thought I’d bring it your way…

You don’t need to wait for Valentine’s Day to flaunt pink and red, my dearies.  The two colors make a sexy combo any day of the year, if you ask me!  What do you think?  Would you have your bridesmaids walk down in pink and red for your non-Valentine’s Day wedding?

Wedding Sketches & Dresses…

with 2 comments

…How Something Beautiful Is Born!

We all have ideas in our heads when it comes to creating.  Little ideas, big ideas and dreams.  But how do you make your dreams a reality?  For those of you planning your weddings, perhaps you write down a list of ideas.  Maybe you make yourself an inspiration board…or, perhaps your ideas begin floating onto your very own wedding blog!  

It’s what you do with those ideas to make them a reality that can make planning a wedding so exciting.  Come the big day, to see your ideas turn into something beautiful is quite rewarding!  On that note, I can only imagine how rewarding it must be for designers to see their wedding dress sketches come to life and onto the runways
