Rent the Runway Jewels

I clearly don’t have enough to say about this weekend. Today I received a very special UPS delivery of gorgeous AV Max bangles and a pair of Isharya earrings, which I’ll be wearing to the Hair of the Dog celebration on Saturday. I borrowed them from Rent the Runway. If you haven’t heard of RTR, you should check it out and join immediately. Send me your email and I’ll send you an invite (something.blu.eliza@gmail.com). It’s free to join, and rental rates are very reasonable, especially for accessories.  Here are pics of what I rented:

My secret is out, I write reminders on my hands.
My earlobe looks funny

I bought this ring to own at Kenneth Cole on sale for $18 earlier this week. Love the stacked look, but it’s just one piece.

I promise I will post a picture of my total ensemble on Sunday.  Can’t wait!!!

Artist Spotlight: Aressa, Etsy

I became obsessed with these wire hangers after seeing them featured over and over by another wedding photographer who I love. After about the 10th one I saw, I asked if he knew where the Brides were getting them and he said Etsy. Lo and behold, after some easy searching I found Aressa. I quickly ordered 2 hangers for 2 friends who are getting married this winter 2011 and next spring 2012. Here are the two pics of them. I had this blue one made in the exact shade of my Bridesmaid dress for my friend Sarah’s wedding in 2012. She was very excited when she opened it. I can’t wait to see her gorgeous dress hanging from it!!

For Sarah

And the black one is for my friend Caroline. I mailed it to her in TN a few weeks ago, and got to experience her excitement via FB. I can’t wait for this wedding day (it’s so soon)!! Only 72 more days 😀

For Caroline

These hangers make great Bachelorette or Shower gifts. They are VERY affordable – ranging from $20 to $25 each. The creator can make them in various colors and finishes. Ordering was easy and delivery was fast (considering they are handmade)!

Photographer Spotlight: AEve Photo

I know I bragged about her a few weeks ago, but here is another plug for my sister’s awesome photography skills. If you are getting married in the future, you NEED to look at her stuff. Here are some of her pics from my cousin Katie’s wedding. Katie and Peter had a beautiful October wedding in NJ at a winery and had some really cute kids involved in their special day.  Allison captured the joy and love of the day beautifully.
