a fun & funky winter wedding inspiration shoot in paris

L-O-O-O-V-I-N-G this sweet video of the  highlights of a recent winter wedding inspiration shoot in Paris pulled together by the fabulously talented Nessa at La Mariée Aux Pieds Nus. Warning: You’ll be whistling this tune for the rest of the day!


Now if watching that isn’t enough to get you to chuck it all in, grab your beau by the hand and hop a plane to get hitched in Paris,  Nessa is also one of the masterminds behind Love, Etc.- (the ONLY Paris wedding show that matters, IMHO) which is happening this Saturday from 10:00 - 7:00PM at La Cartonnerie.  Many of the vendors from this shoot will be strutting their stuff LIVE at Love, Etc.- so you won’t want to miss it!

La Cartonnerie, 159 rue Saint Maur, 75011

art deco meets rock and roll: harriet wilde rmw shoe collection

Heads up, people! British footwear designer Harriet Wilde is bringing studs to the wedding world!  They’ve just launched a collaboration with Rock My Wedding-  a collection of 4 exclusive stylish wedding shoes sold only through RMW and Harriet Wilde.  First up is “Industrial“, a sweet, nude kid suede peep toe featuring a studded Art Deco inspired fan design- these little gems are bridal shoes with rock chic attitude!

Add to that, ‘The Blue Soul“-  aptly named as it features a blue leather sole. Inspired by the pretty button details on wedding dresses, each shoe features the detail in a line on the back of the shoe and heel, available in either pearls, studs or Swarovski crystals.

These styles are available only through Harriet Wilde and RMW online boutique, and quantities are limited, so if you love them (and you know you love them)- you’d better grab them. Oh, and they ship worldwide. Rock on, les filles!

winter wedding accessories: possibility jewelry collection

The holidays are behind us, love is in the air, and Winter Weddings are in full swing around the globe.  If you’re looking to make a statement that’s modern, fun, sophisticated and uniquely YOU with your winter wedding accessories, then you need to take a look at Astrid Mueller’s new line, possibility. Tapping into her lifelong fascination with clear materials and design tools (remember Spyrograph?) and pairing them with her stylishly minimalistic design aesthetic, possibility is the best of both worlds for Astrid- an extremely gifted graphic designer who counts Swarovski, Marie Claire, Diesel (and parisian events!) as past clients.

possibility is clear Lucite jewelry, with engraved illustration patterns, Swarovski crystals and velvet ribbons, inspired by bedazzling city glamor and a verve for life. For her first collection, Snövit, Astrid drew inspiration from the confidence and cool monochromatic colors of New York fashionistas, the clarity of fresh ice cubes clinking in a martini glass, and the geometric delicacy of fresh snowflakes. It’s all part of her mission to “create jewelry that shimmers with the spirit of possibility and fills you with joy whenever you wear it”. 

Currently in its soft open, you can access the Snövit collection through etsy, but be sure to sign up on the waiting list to be first to know when their retail boutique partner list is launched.  And while you’re at it, join Astrid and friends on Polyvore, and add your own mood board using pieces from the possibility collection: http://tinyurl.com/possibilityI-on-polyvore
