Tuesday Shoesday…Olivia Palermo’s wedding day Manolo Blahnik’s!

olivia manolos

There is something SO romantic and personal about the idea of slipping away to city hall and eloping with the love of your life. Just because you take this quiet, yet extra special route on your big day doesn’t mean your wedding day style has to suffer.  Olivia Palermo proved that to us in more ways then one this past week when she married long time love Johannes Huebl in a super secret and small NY elopement.  She looked effortless but completely chic all at the same time.  In a Caroline Herrera designed ensemble paired with classic makeup and her signature parted down the middle pony, Olivia was a complete vision of bridal fashion perfection.  I was instantly in love with her Manolo Blahnik Hangisi Satin pumps in Cobalt blue, they added just the right punch of color while still looking completely classy and fashion forward.  I can’t imagine these Manolos won’t be on the top of every brides wedding shoe list this wedding season.

Friday Wine Tasting…2010 Estate Argyros Atlantis White!


Wine of the Week: 

2010 Estate Argyros Atlantis White


Winemakers Notes:

Crystal-clear yellow colour, distinctively flavoured with citrus overtones. The relatively high acidity of Asyrtico gives it a crisp freshness, while the vineyard’s extremely low performance offers body, structure and substance.


Inspiration from Anywhere….Calligraphy!


Via Perch Paper Company

Getting a wedding invitation suite in the mail is the equivalent to getting a gorgeously wrapped present sent to my door step.  When I get a closer look and see that there is impeccable calligraphy on the outside envelope I know I am in for a real snack for my eyes!  This small detail sets  a tone for your invitations which in turn sets the stage for your big day.  Calligraphy from ancient Greek translates to kallos (beauty) and graphe (beauty), the Greeks couldn’t have gotten it more correct.  There are many, many styles of calligraphy and they have all made a huge comeback with signage, lettering and invitations.  Some of my favorite types of calligraphy are the more modern and whimsical ones that seem to take up all the space on the envelope and are almost never in a straight line but still so beautiful, effortless and organized. This isn’t just lettering this is straight art, I still have my escort card that was handwritten in calligraphy from a wedding over 2 years ago.  So consider your invitation envelope as your wedding’s debut, remember, first impressions are always most important.
