wardrobe redux at anthropologie

Thursday, October 29th, 2009

Tammy Keefer just sent these beautiful images from the Wardrobe Redux event, organized by Merriment Events, at Anthropologie last Sunday. It was so much fun hanging out with Tammy + the Anthro girls, looking at all of the new things that are coming in for holiday. I definitely have my eye on this, this and this. Shoppers shopped the night away, sangria in hand. They enjoyed tapas, beautiful flowers by Janie Medley and yummy cupcakes by Two Sweet.

I met Sam Walls of Samuelle Couture at the B List event last year in Brooklyn and was immediately taken with her designs. All of her gowns are custom designed, and I think you’ll see she has an heirloom aesthetic with a modern twist, which I love. Sam was kind enough to send a few images over to little white book. I hope you enjoy! Brooklyn Bride also recently interviewed Sam on the process of creating a custom gown for WE Go Bridal. Be sure to check out her post!

We’re so excited to be a part of Anthropologie’s upcoming event, Wardrobe Redux, taking place October 25th at the Richmond store. The idea is to bring {something old}, an old Anthro piece from seasons past, to pair with {something new}. Personal shoppers will be on hand. There will be cocktails and appetizers, beautiful flowers by Janie Medley and photography by Tammy Keefer. r.s.v.p. by calling Anthropologie (804.330.3331) by October 21st. Hope to see you there!

Old School

Thursday, October 15th, 2009

I was really inspired by the Ivy League style spread in the new Lonny Magazine and thought it would be fun to do a little “old school” inspiration today…think vintage varsity letters, plaid, pewter and brass trophies….

Halloween inspiration: A Ghoulishly Glam Fete

Monday, September 28th, 2009

I am so excited for Halloween and thought it would be fun to share some things that are inspiring me this year! I love the idea of a glammed up Halloween fete, full of pink and silver accents.

Some great resources for ghoulish decor are Jamali Garden, Luna Bazaar, and, believe it or not, The Dollar Store, where you can find lots of sparkly skulls to accent your table.

Cozy fall table covers

Friday, September 25th, 2009

This time of year is all about cozy, warm blankets. How about giving them new life as table covers for a fall fete?

Cabbage Roses

Thursday, September 24th, 2009

There’s nothing like a cabbage rose. Said to have more than 100 petals, cabbage roses were a favorite of Dutch painters. Most always a shade of pink, they have the loveliest scent (so lovely that rose oil is cultivated from them to make perfume).

Inspired by Dorothy Draper

Wednesday, September 23rd, 2009

I’m in love with the Fall issue of Elegant bride, particularly the “Peak of Chic” article mid way through the magazine, inspired by the designs of Dorothy Draper. Draper was an amazing woman – she professionalized the field of interior design. Known for color combinations that were bold, vibrant and unusual for the time, checkerboard flooring and her signature “cabbage” chintz and stripes, Draper’s influence is often referred to as the “Draper touch.” Wouldn’t it be fun to add a dab of modern day “Draper touch” to a wedding? Think Kate Spade china, Cheree Berry invitations, touches of gold, an elegant, simple gown…oh so glamorous but totally fun and playful!
