Rue La La :: Bridal

Now they’ve done it. I was already obsessed with these online shopping machines, like Rue La La, but now they go and pull wedding dresses into the mix. Amazing!

Originally $440 :: Now $150

Originally $1,980 :: Now $700

Originally $1,870 :: Now $700

Originally $495 :: Now $200

I love the short lace one especially … perfect for summer. They also have shoes and other accessories on sale today.

Originally $120 :: Now $60
Sondra Roberts … c’mon now. Loving the silver.

And of course, they couldn’t omit some shoes.
Originally $215 :: Now $80

The boys weren’t left out either … large selection of suits, bowties, and suspenders!
Originally $50 :: Now $20

Originally $80 :: Now $40

Daily pick-me-up — sales start at 10 every morning. If you need an invite, let me know! Only catch is … you can’t hate me later when you spend too much money. Self control, people. Self control.

I came across this poster at some point. It’s layout reminds me of the stop. drop. and roll. drills we had pounded into our heads during elementary .. but in most situations I always make better decisions after calming myself down ; shopping or not.

So there you go … shopping high to contemplation. My mind bounces around alot. Hope your day is full of random thoughts too! Keep it interesting.

Charlotte Casadéjus :: Vintage Wedding Dress

With the ominous weather (and much needed rain) we’ve been having here, I thought it would be appropriate to highlight some wedding dress action. I still have wedding fever from this past weekend .. Stephen and Teresa, who we threw the wedding shower for, said ‘I Do’ last Friday. It was a beautiful ceremony and reception that reflected their style so well; it was such a special event to witness their love and devotion to each other as they begin their lives as husband and wife. I wish you two the absolute best in life and love. You are perfect. for. each. other.

Ok, now on to the dresses

I came across British designer, Charlotte Casadéjus, on Ruffled last week. Charlotte’s dresses have a distinct vintage feel, with lots of whimsical fabrics and details. She has debuting a new dress line soon .. I can’t wait to see it!

Oh, and she also has a line of gorgeous vintage bags and belts in the works. Love!

Vintage Wedding Dresses :: Mill Crest Vintage

I came across this lovely site while browsing Ruffled over the weekend. Mill Crest Vintage carries authentic, one of a kind vintage wedding dresses from the turn of the century to the 90’s. The site also has a plethora of vintage accessories, including these lovely velvet sashes. They also have day dresses, which are so fun to browse through. It makes me imagine myself as Lucy, dressing up and waiting for Ricky to get home.

Although there is plenty to adore … this dress is by far my favorite.  1950’s Peggy Sue Got Married!

Drop back by on Wednesday — I’ve got some lovely detail pictures to share from the Oh Dear! wedding shower!

Kate Spade :: Wedding Belles (and whistles)

This is an exciting week at Leftover Lemons. Still recovering from the wedding shower last weekend (detail pictures to come this week!!!) and pulling together the final details for the Vintage Fresh style shoot — this weekend I was a busy girl! The style shoot went off without a hitch, thanks to the help of my wonderful hubby, our amazing Bella Pop peeps, and a new friend, Shannon Caldwell, who rocked makeup and hair for the event. Look forward to a sneak peek this week of all the style goodness!

For today, another shopping distraction .. Kate Spade debuted their wedding line, Wedding Belles (and whistles), last week. The collection boasts bright colors, little white dresses, and lots of killer shoes! The wide selection of jewelry would make a statement at any occasion! There’s a yellow necklace on the sight that has my name all over it. Pop over and take a look – spring has arrived.
