I Have NO Willpower — Haute Bride Must Know This!

earring_hb2I have zero willpower. Whether it’s a tasty treat, a beautiful winter jacket or amazing bridal jewelry, I am quite poor at resisting.

I’ve been searching for jewelry that works with my theme, gown and, well, personal style and haven’t found anything that made me giddy. Let me rephrase that I haven’t found anything in my price range that makes me giddy. Most days I can be found with eyes glazed over, gazing lovingly at the Haute Bride site. Sigh.

Well, today, I bit the bullet — sort of.

Most of the jewels are gorgeous and lovely, but too chunky to work with my super awesome gown(s).

However, there are some darling pieces that I covet daily that would be smashingly lovely on me.

I don’t know what happened, but I was on the site the other day, and suddenly, I looked down and saw a paypal receipt of payment on my screen. Payment was sent to Haute Bride. Oh boy.

So now I am guiltily pleased to await the arrival of my gorgeous bridal jewelry.

Here are some of the beauties I long for. hb_chocker

Shoes for Sale!

J. Crew has one of the best, wearable, gorgeous, trendy-yet-classic wedding/party/work shoe collections.

Bonus: right now, all their full-price boots and shoes are 25% off.

I’m in!

The code is “SHOESALE” and it lasts through November 19.

I Do Love a Sample Sale

I love sample sales. I have some really awesome tops that my friends all covet, that came from sample sales. I love getting something original and even better, I love getting a DEAL!

So… I think I’ll have to drag my sister to the Priscilla of Boston Sample Sale! Wedding dresses start at $199, bridesmaid/party frocks start at just $19.99.

Who knows what they’ll have… my only disappointment is that I already ordered a new gown to replace my poor, damaged Vera Wang. Oh well — at least this way I won’t have to worry about getting it cleaned (and stressing over dress #2 getting ruined). Who knows, maybe I’ll score a bridesmaid/cocktail dress in the process! A girl can never have too many little black dresses!

I would totally wear any of these!

Absolutely Stunning

This Reem Acra dress takes my breath away.

The sweet blush tone, the swingy skirt, the low (too low for me)-cut bodice.

I am simply swooning over this gorgeous dress.
