                                                                          THEME AND INSPIRATION

After I was originally inspired by this photo from Vanity Fair on the left, I've been modeling our theme after period piece movies. Most of my ideas are gathered from movies I love like these:

Here's an inspiration board I made incorporating the theme and color palette. It all took months of brainstorming and 2nd guessing but I'm psyched it all seems to be coming together now.

Of course it's just in my personality to want to tweak with it somehow so I decided to change the neckline to more of a scalloped sweetheart like Natalie Portman's dress in this pic. I hired a seamstress at first to perform the surgery and after not being impressed with the work I decided to do it myself. Yes - I am CRAAAZY! I don't even know how to work a sewing machine so I did it by hand. Here's how it came out! =)

What I really liked about this model’s hair-do is the volume and period piece look that I was wanting to tie in with the old world style.

I came across these photos of Kristen Stewart. Her up-do is so close to capturing my ideal hairstyle. It’s big, voluminous, and a little messy. It’s also classic, modern, and edgy at the same time.

At first I made this for my hair, but now I'm thinking it looks too 1940s/50s

So now I'm thinking about wearing something like this instead. I'm liking the idea of colored flowers and a feather

 Bridal Bling

 I thought I’d end up purchasing my jewelry at a department store, but actually found it at Banana Republic of all places at the Forum Shops at Caesars Palace when I was in Vegas over the pastThanksgiving holiday. We were just looking at clothes as I would not expect them to carry formal jewelry, but then this bracelet winked at me from under a glass jewelry case. I also found these earrings there. They have the slightest hint of blue in the center so they’ll double up as my ’something blue.’
