How happy am I that sequins, glitters and metallics are going to remain on trend into Spring/Summer 2011?! Ecstatic! Adding a touch of sparkle is a perfectly fashionable way to bring a feeling of luxe sophistication to your wedding. And it’s soooo pretty!

H&M’s upcoming collaboration with France’s oldest couture house, Lanvin, has some definite wedding shoe possibilities. Fabulous doesn’t even begin to describe it.

Sorrysorrysorrysorrysorry!! I am the worst. The man and I have been passing a cold back and forth to each other since last week. Such is the beauty of married life, I suppose. Someone is always breathing in your face, and you’re always breathing in theirs. It isn’t as sexy as it sounds. I mean, sometimes it is. But, not in this case. In this case, it’s disgusting.

I don’t have much today. My brain is pretty much fried from our one-two punch of Western medicine and homeopathic hopefulness. I do have some things I just couldn’t not tell you about.

Gilt Groupe has some amazing events going on right now:

– One of the best skincare lines around, Clarins. Sale ends 11/07, 9:00 PM PST.

– Aaaand…the holy freaking grail of sales…SPANX! Sale ends 11/06, 9:00 AM PDT.

– Also, an Alexander McQueen sale. Which falls outside of our budget conscious situation, but fuck. It’s McQueen. This houndstooth cape/coat is McQueen, it’s included in the sale, and it is practically murdering me, it’s so TO DIE. McQueen is dead. Long live McQueen! Sale ends 11/06, 9:00 AM PDT.

    David’s Bridal is getting ready for their $99 sale, 11/05-11/22. All dresses that aren’t on sale for $99, are on sale for $50-$300 off. Even if it means dealing with David’s Bridal, it’s a good chance to get your dress for a better price.

    Alfred Angelo is having their Dash Down the Aisle event on 11/09 and 11/10. It’s in store only, but they have an easy pull down menu to find a store near you.

    I love Halloween! I get scared easily, but no self respecting Misfits fan would be anything other than enthusiastic for October 31st. There were several times, during the planning of our wedding, that I wistfully talked about a Halloween wedding. But, since my friends already joke that I’m goth, that would have been opening myself up to more ridicule than I would like.

    When I was a kid, I hated the color orange so much, I used to tell my mom I was allergic to it. No, you’ll find no orange in my Halloween wedding. I prefer a lacier Halloween. A sexier Halloween. I’m not talking slutty werewolves, or whatever. I mean, seductive, Victorian tinged Halloween.

    An ivory dress with black trim, black lace and ribbon hung as decor, black and mercury candle holders, a ruffled bolero jacket, a bouquet of purple anemones, fiddlehead ferns and peacock feathers, and an invitation that gives your guests an indication of the spooky fun they’re about to encounter. The cloche jar centerpieces could be easily replicated with different lids, bowls and vases, it’s one of my favorite non-floral centerpieces.

    And of course, a sequined and glittered mask. Give those out as favors, and your guests will really get into the Halloween spirit. Plus, who doesn’t feel a little bit sexier when they’re wearing a mask? Nobody will be anonymous, but it will be a little edgier. Probably not masked-sex-party edgy, but that’s ok. For now. We can plan that party another time. We’re going to need sexual oils and whatnot for that.

    So, that’s my first inspiration board! What do you guys think?
