Yep, that’s $2 in the title of this one – I got a pair of most gorgeous appliqués that were just a buck a pop. Check them out…
I was first thinking about making shoe clips, but as the little wedding week got underway, and I saw some inspiration danglers at Anthropologie…
…and I thought I’d turn them into easy earrings, totally appropriate for a wedding!
Because it’s been pretty much all things wedding this week, I figured a fun giveaway to tie all of this in would be perfectly suited!!
I’m obsessed with all these goodies…My Best Friend’s Wedding (which I will always think of each time “Say A Little Prayer” plays), a satin sleep eye mask (I have a leopard printed one which saves me on the plane), Blue Q’s “I’m Savin Up For My Dream Wedding” tin bank, and Hide-A-Notes which are adorable cards with different cute drawings/sayings you can give your significant other. Nothing like sneaking a little card with a ship on it that says “you float my boat” into a back pocket
To win these goodies, leave a comment below with a fun wedding story! Maybe you caught the wedding bouquet without trying (you got that story from me last week), saw attendees do the splits (yep and splits, plural, was not a typo), or had a private John Mellencamp concert during the wedding reception (check). Share something fun/memorable and a winner will randomly get chosen next week (as well as winners from the previous two weeks’ giveaways)!
Continuing on the wedding theme this week, this dress just cracked me up when I found it…
There was something about the sleeves, mixed with the bright pink that just made me giggle. I feel like there was a bridesmaid moment that happened with this piece and I couldn’t stop thinking about what flowers got picked to match the dresses! To make this wearable for me, I got to work!
I’ve had this amazing piece for close to a year – Barbara sent this to me last October and now it’s making a debut! I have a wedding to attend for some dear friends and knew I could make this piece work!
Here is the story….many, many years ago, I was given this ‘vintage’ unfinished sequined dress. I was supposed to fix it up, breathe life back into it, and make it something fantastic, but that never happened. Skip forward to today, I am cleaning my closets and trunks and there it is, as sparkly as ever in my cedar chest, but sad and unwearable. I hope you can rock it and make it into something really fun to wear! I can hardly wait to see what you come up with. This is a VERY special piece to me and hard to part with but it will just sit there forever, otherwise. I have had it for at least 25 yrs and hope it will make your list!
I loved the sequins, but there was a bit of discoloration and there was no zipper!!
There’s lots of work to complete on this and I can’t wait to get started. I grabbed some tools…
…and got started!!
Hope everyone’s Labor Day weekend is going amazingly well!
I’m giving a little teaser to the post that you’ll soon see!
Barbara H. sent this piece my way close to a year ago and I had been holding onto it, waiting to find just the right place to wear it! “Just the right place” finally presented itself and it had a stellar moment wedding-ing it up!
Full post to arrive shortly…stay tuned!! xx
