Your tropical computer background may be your only summer escape, but it’s easy to dream of being poolside with this exotic cockatoo bangle.
- Celebrating nuptials with a magenta clutch and sparkly party shoes
- An elegant table setting …
- … at the historic Pfister Hotel
- I never tire of quatrefoil details

I’m excited to share an exclusive discount to one of my favorite labels: Kendall K.
I met Kendall a few years ago through her blog when she was working on starting her line. Even though she’s on to her third collection, I still remember how excited she was when she had her hang tag designed!
Discount Details: $40 off any item from the spring 2012 collection (view it here)
Expires: May 25, 2012
My Favorite: The Lola Wrap Dress (only $88 after the discount!)
Buds have already burst into blossoms and birds are coaxing you out of bed at dawn, but spring isn’t in full bloom until one more telltale sign: the first nuptial announcement lands in your mailbox.
As much as I love a good party, celebrating “I Do” is expensive. You’ll need to budget for travel expenses, hotel accommodations and whatever’s left on the registry. At least your outfit doesn’t have to break the bank. Here are a few ideas to sail through wedding season on a budget – without being photographed in the same outfit twice:
- Pluck a dress from your closet and transform it with accessories. Statement baubles and glittery shoes do wonders.
- Bypass the designer duds in favor of a pretty mid-priced dress, like one from the Oasis clothes collection.
- Swap dresses with a friend. After all, her family has already seen the cocktail dress she wore to her cousin’s wedding.
- Thread a needle and start sewing gems and pearls onto a simple dress. An embellished neckline? Rhinestone sleeves?
Now that the outfit is set, go ahead, slip on a pair of sparkly heels and start practicing the “Electric Slide.”
