Fashion Fix: Fashion Week 2011

September 22, 2011

I can’t believe that September is almost over. This month has flown by!

September is exciting for so many reasons – some of my favorite things about the Fall are the leaves changing, going apple picking, college football and fashion week! While looking at some of the new Ready to Wear lines from New York and London Fashion Week, I kept thinking that a lot of the dresses would be perfect as wedding or reception dresses. Take a look at some of dresses I fell in love with…

Wedding Inspiration

Back to School

September 20, 2011

The middle of September is already here, can you believe it? I think it’s safe to say that everyone has gone back to school by now. Showing off their new haircuts and scuffing up their shiny shoes.  It’s such an exciting time – especially when you’re young!

Inspired by red apples and old fashioned schoolhouses, this board is great for anyone recently engaged or planning a September wedding. And how cute would it be for sweeties who met in school? Love it!

And if you’re looking for even more inspiration, check out (past intern) Becca’s fun school post here.
