No one knows weddings quite as well as Abby Larson, so when the Meredith Vieira Show featured her to speak on how to “Save vs. Splurge” on your wedding we listened! Abby took 3 major wedding purchases paired them with the hottest trends respectively and showed you how to save hundreds off each category. We especially loved her DIY piece for water color gilded invitations.  If you’re planning a wedding this feature is a must see!

Oh Target (pronounced “Tar-Jay) you’ve done it again. The entire universe is losing it over your Lilly Collection. Girls were planning out shopping strategies they way Bill Belichick prepares the Patriots for the Superbowl. I am sure it was the a scene of all scenes. You never disappoint with your designer collabs. These Lilly Pulitzer for Target Starfish Gold Sandals would be the perfect thing for a day in Nantucket or a Summer night bbq peeking out beneath a pair of crisp white linen pants. Good luck finding these gems, they’re as a rare as a unicorn, who means the literally don’t exist in any Target or Target online. If you find a pair TELL US.
