With college football season in full swing, it’s time for all you lovely ladies to dust off your finest gameday duds so you can cheer for your team in style. I went to Southern Methodist University in Dallas, TX, so whether I like it or not, I know a little something about the “perfect” tailgate attire. I am not saying I bought into the whole southern idea of wearing a dress to a football game, but I am certainly well versed on what it takes to support your team, while still looking fashionable. In honor of this Saturday’s upcoming games I thought I would post a couple of inspiration boards to show you how to rock your team’s colors without having to make a trip to the university bookstore for wardrobe tips. First up, my alma mater of course. Ironically they have a bye this weekend, which gives all you Mustangs a free weekend to go buy some fabulous gameday outfits. I have supplied a “Gameday Glamour” board for those girls that can’t bear to go one day sans stilettos, as well as a “Gameday Casual” version for the girls who are a little more on my level when it comes to tailgating and watching sports… Go Ponies!
The most important part of any event is the attention detail, and this bride left no corner untouched. However I may have a biased opinion, since that bride was me. None the less, I had a vision and I made sure that vision transcended throughout the entire event. Every piece of paper matched and served a purpose, while every detail fit the theme. Touches of textured flowers, bits of bling and bows mixed together to create the most beautifully romantic yet fun and girly day of my life. [Read more...]
Yesterday I posted some fun DIY owl themed projects in honor of my first Frankie Handbag purchase. I am now the proud owner of my new baby/clutch ‘Stud-Muffin’. I can’t wait until she arrives! Well, today I thought I would keep the party train a movin’ with a
choo choo HOOT HOOT! Like I said the other day, I am on the prowl for an owl to put in my home as a fun statement piece. These are some of the ideas I came up with. Some are more subtle that others, but there is definitely something for everyone.

One of the worst things about getting married is you can’t plan your own showers. I would have loved to have a Mad Hatter Tea Party! I guess one of my lucky engaged girlfriends will get one instead… I pretty much have it all planned. I am just waiting on the boyfriends to pop the question. I got the idea when Taylor, of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, threw a Mad Hatter Unbirthday Party for her daughter last season. It was divine and over the top. I loved every minute of it. My party will obviously have to be downsized a bit, simply because my budget is a tad tighter than hers, but I am sure I can get creative and make it amazing. It is a perfect opportunity to stretch my DIY muscles.
