You guys! I'm blonde! Since our wedding I've been feeling like I could use a drastic change, and the thought popped into my head that I could go blonde again (during my college years I was a blonde as well) and yesterday I decided to take the plunge.

I thought I'd share my experience with you in case it proves to be useful. Apologies in advance for the low quality pictures--they were all taken with my phone in low-light settings.

Rue La La, a members-only online designer retailer, recently released a handbag guide that I think is an amazing jumping off point for anyone interesting in handbags.

Rue La La, a members-only online designer retailer, recently released a handbag guide that I think is an amazing jumping off point for anyone interesting in handbags. I particularly like their advice about designer labels (I often buy vintage handbags, and it’s important to be able to spot a fake) and their history of handbags.

Wedding Dress Shopping in Chicago, Featuring David’s Bridal

Season: Wedding
·

Let’s dive right into the important details:
Wedding date: March
Wedding location: a beach in the Caribbean
My price range $300 – $400
Requirements: strapless, pure white, beachy
While I could certainly afford a more expensive dress, I personally feel that it is ridiculous to spend a fortune on a dress I will only wear once (I think I’m an anomaly in the fashion blogging community). I was open to spending more when I began my search, but I decided to see what I could find at a lower price point. Ultimately my idea was to spend less on the dress and more on the accessories that would go with the dress–accessories that could be worn again.
