Spring is almost here and a bride-to-be has some beautiful new choices for her big day........
It's many, many years since I was a bride..............and back then they never had such pretty things as these. Looks were more traditional, churches being the usual venue. Nowadays brides choose beaches, mountaintops, country barns, wildflower fields (my favorite) and such.
Anthropologie has gone into the bridal business. Under the new name of BHLDN (part of Urban Outfitters) wedding gowns, special occasion dresses, shoes, and accessories are now available online, but not in their shops. To see the lovely collection go here.
Yes, these shoes I'd love. Not too high, soft and comfy looking.......and of course French blue suede is perfect for my wardrobe - with a French pedicure. Not sure they'd do well in the wildflower field though!
Size counts! But I doubt this comes in mine. Oh well, not planning another wedding any time soon......or any time come to that!
More lovely shoes............the back being gorgeous and will keep all eyes on your ankles (rather than your derriere!) as you leave the
Now this purse is perfect for evening - in fact so pretty I'd probably use it as an ornament on my dresser - too lovely to hide away between evenings dining out at the local pizza joint or pub!
Anthro always delights with creative display.......helping to dress for a wedding will certainly be another way their design team will wow us. I can see these reused as gorgeous bed jackets - those of you around my age will remember those!
Never can have too many jewels........and interesting artifacts on which to display them.

Oh for the gentle days when real women actually wore dainty gloves like these, and not just to weddings. Back in the fifties and sixties my mother always wore pale cream gloves with her suits and coats, even going to work. I still have one pair found in the back of a drawer some years ago. Wrapped in tissue.........they are very special to me, filled with sweet memories.
I don't usually report on fashion - I do however love great style, fabric used in different ways, shoes and more shoes.......and memories of course!
Cleaning out my dresser drawers yesterday I came across my Mother's gloves - perhaps that's the real reason for this post.
