One of the trickiest parts of completing the full ensemble for The Big Day.....shoes!!! Who knew?!?!
For a variety of reasons -- heel height, comfort, color, style -- it seems to be a place of contention for a sensible yet stylish bride.....Though we do have some really cute and comfy shoes from Grace shoes, it's sometimes fun to see what else is out there, especially in an area where you can infuse personal style!
Just offering a celeb-inspired solution: Natalie Portman's new line of shoes for Tescasan.
Youthful, fresh, 100% vegan (yes, that's what we said),and definitely re-wearable.... Check this out from the website:
Beyond just lending her name to the collection, Portman worked closely with Té Casan throughout the entire development process to maintain consistent quality with an exceptional design aesthetic. Dazzling, playful and elegant, each shoe exudes the star’s own personal style - all with social consciousness. To that end Portman will donate 100% of her proceeds to various non-profit organizations dedicated to environmental preservation and animal rights.
Three cheers for being sassy and socially aware!!

Just beware - this post will probably make you hungry, and definitely make you get in touch with your sweet tooth!!!
If you've been in the store while BJackson's Bakery's cupcakes are here, you know exactly what we mean when we say these are THE VERY BEST cupcakes EVER.
And that's saying alot, what with the boom the cupcake business has enjoyed the past several years........
We don't know what Miss Mary Sue at BJackson's does to these cupcakes, but we can never eat just one. That's right...it's a 2-cupcake minimum and you will completely understand when you've had just one bite.....mmmmmmmmmmm.........
You, too, can enjoy these delectable delights this weekend at the Melissa Sweet Trunk Show!!
That's right, eat cupcakes and try on some wedding dresses : ) :) Sweet way to spend the weekend, no?

Oh boy, you are in for a treat.
Actually, we were in for a treat when gorgeous-elegant-humble-sweet-unbelievable Kate chose her classic Augusta Jones gown at The Bride Room! And finally, we get to share with the world!
These are guest photos - so we don't know who to credit - but we love them all the same! In fact, it seems perfect that to introduce Kate, it would be through the eyes of someone who loves her enough to share her most special day! We just kind of get the feeling that everyone in her life must love her, because she embodies that kind of authenticity and kindness....And oh! We could seriously blog for days about her mother and extended family who we had the great pleasure of meeting!
Oh, we digress! Kate's dress by Augusta Jones....Fabulous silk shantung bridesmaids dress (color: ginger....is that not the greatest summer color!) by Watters & Watters....
Kate!....You will have us smiling ear-to-ear all week! Can't wait to see the rest of the photos!!

Yes, sweet bride Sarah opted to changed from her ceremony gown to this fabulous short Melissa Sweet gown for the reception at City Hall. Seriously, can anyone rock a dress better than this girl???
We are inspired! We love, love, love it!!!
