Palette Board: Black, Beige and White

I came across Lisa Lefkowitz's shot of these fantastic wedding shoes and had to a palette board around it. Black and white with a touch of beige is clean, simple and seasonless. It's vintage and modern at the same time. 



The girls at Lovely Bridal Shop have landed on an idea that is a definite can't-miss; take the independent, feminine styles featured on wedding blogs and creating and fabulous boutique in the West Village.  Their vendor list is a who's who of bridal favorites- Sarah Seven, Elizabeth Dye, Delphine Manivet, Lo Boheme, and Ban.Do to name a few.  What's really special about this shop is how lovely it truly is.  Before you even walk through the doors, you know that this isn't going to be your typical bridal salon visit.  Their is a vintage prettiness reminiscent of old french movies throughout the store.  And the staff is so friendly without being phony.  You don't feel like someone is trying to get a commission; the girls are just eager to help.

Be sure to check out Lovely's delightful blog, in particular their recent trip to Paris.  It captures the vintage style and aesthetic of the shop so well and is as beautifully designed as their website. 



Wedding Inspiration: Apricot and Coke Bottle Green

This isn't your mother's 1980's sea foam green and peach. My inspiration for today's board is sea tossed vintage coke bottle green and fresh, ripe apricot. The palette works beautifully for fall, lending itself a little bit of femininity in a typically brown and orange season.
