Take A Look....

Okay, I am going to be completely honest with you. As I had mentioned before, things are a little off with the hubby being in Hawaii. I mean, we are all managing fine just I have WAYYYY less free time. Today after tucking the munchkins in bed I looked at the several items I am working on in case I make it to the finale of Project Run and Play and thought "I should work on that" but then I remembered that today Anthropologie launched their new sister store BHLDN, carrying all their bridal wares. Well, the finale outfit went out the window and I have honestly been drooling over the site for a solid hour now... waste of time? Possibly Probably. Tons of inspiration and immediately regret the direction I went with my finale? Totally! Ha!
All I know is: 
I want to make this dress, but somehow make it modest:
The one part of my finale outfit I feel better about is the awesome hat I made, especially after seeing this one:

If I were a super mean bride I would totally put my bridesmaids in this:
(Seriously I think only THAT model can pull that dress off ha!)
I am on the HUNT for some fabric so I can make this dress... with about 6 extra inches on the bottom :)
My lovely friend is a bridesmaid in an upcoming wedding in Oz and the only requirement for her dress is that it be green, I think we found a winner:
Apparently I need to buy myself some pom poms and glue them to some of my boring old pumps:

I am also kicking myself for not stocking up on items from Ban.do before they snagged this big campaign and are now in fact crazy expensive (Totally awesome for them though!) And I will now be adding bows to my newly made bolero :)

So there you have it friends, the sad truth about what I have been doing with my free time. If you were getting married would you consider any of their bridal items? Or do you think they are too over the top? Anywhoo, I hope your evening was more productive, and hopefully as filled with beauty! 

PS If you have a moment take the "what kind of bride are you test". According to this fail-proof four question survey I am:

Hmmm... I would like it if I could refer to my day to day outfits as ensembles, although I do tend to be theatrical at times, much to the dismay of first my parents and now my darling hubby :)


  1. I am TOTALLY with you on that green dress! Just add a sleeve to the other side too and I would wear it in a heartbeat!

    For what it's worth, my set aside "sewing time" often becomes look through websites and drool over things time too!

  2. I loved your comment about making it modest. There is so many pretty things that are just not quite modest. And it makes it hard when you want to wear it, but end up putting something under it to make it modest. It changes the look. I love that you design your stuff to be modest from the beginning. There is nothing I would have to change. Thank you!

  3. lol...this is hillarious..LOVE it

  4. Oh my!! can't wait to see what you come up with! You're the rockstar of anthro-inspired sewing! Yay!

  5. I just have to say that I love and appreciate the value you put on modesty! Your women's designs are proof that clothing can be made hip, fresh AND modest! Thank you!

  6. I too love that totally awesome flower dress. But I'd make it just the same, and throw on a pair of leggings or cute jeans instead!

  7. Is it ok to send you fabric if your going to be relocating?
