Stache-tastic!

Hello luvahs!

Inspired by my recently submitted blog post for { Becoming the Mrs. } I'm in a STACHE-TASTIC mood! Aka, going bonkers for everything mustache. :Hint hint: You're going to want to check out my guest blog when it's posted. Oh, I'll be sure to you do...

Today's post is all about staches! Those silly things that men grow to make look distinguished. Or those awful things that certain military men grow on certain deployments to make themselves feel...manly. Ahem. Right...I digress. Well, those mustaches are a lot more than facial hair. They have become the influence of a growing trend all around us! Home decor, attire, weddings, design, you name it. These little guys pop up everywhere and I love it.

Tuesday Shoesday

Why can’t we have it all? Looking great and feeling even better- what a truly fabulous, functional shoe should do. Heirloom quality, vintage-inspired designs that stand the test of time.  Jackie O, Grace Kelly, Audrey Hepburn with a little Gwen Stefani, Rachel Bilson, and Katy Perry mixed in.  The twins believe in pro-choice, the choice to have a killer shoe that isn’t a killer shoe. And thus the perfect pair was born. 

 { Leung Twins, Emily and Jessica  of Hey Lady }



These downright awesome shoes are the workings of two fantastically talented sisters. { Hey Lady } was created by Emily and Jessica Leung who were in search of the 'anti-dyeable, actually-danceable wedding shoe', and boy did they get it right. These artfully crafted shoes are beyond unique. Step into a pair of these on your wedding day, and you'll be sure to get a few looks. At least your feet will!

Tuesday Shoesday

I couldn't choose just one, I couldn't! They were all just so glorious, I couldn't do it. In fact, I originally bookmarked 12 and then figured I should probably take it down a knotch. Shoes...they get me way too excited!


All of these dazzling shoes are from { Badgley Mischka } and you can find these particular ones on { Polyvore.com }!

Pick a favorite! I have 20...
