Yes to the Dress: My Customized Dress from Ve'Lace Bridal

Lots of women know what dress they want to rock as they walk down the aisle. They see it in a magazine or have shopped before or they spot it on the TV in a show or movie. If they don't know the exact dress, then most know what style they are going for. I didn't know what dress I wanted but I definitely knew what style I wanted - something tea length, retro, puffy, unique, and detailed. Oh and sleeves. I wanted sleeves!

I decided to start my dress shopping at Ve'Lace Bridal in Bellingham, MA. My maid of honor, Red, got her dress there when she was shopping and the staff there were so great and everyone was so awesome to Red that I knew I had to include Ve'Lace when I started shopping.

Holiday Cheer with Brittans Designs

I know, I know - you want to see the wedding photos already. Well, so do I! Trust me, I plan to share all the wedding details soon enough. First, though, I have a fun holiday lookbook featuring Brittans Designs from Etsy.

Brittans Designs creates custom ladies neckties and bows on Etsy that definitely cater to the vintage lovin' gal. With some Disney inspired bows, I Love Lucy inspired bows, and a plethora of holiday themed bows and ties, Brittan's Etsy shop has something for everyone!

I knew I wanted to style a few for the holidays - I knew it'd be SO easy to transform an everyday outfit into something more festive just by adding a bow! Brittan kindly sent me 3 different styles to work with - a neck tie, an elegant bow with a neck fasten and closure, and a more festive bow with a brooch back. I love that these each provide a variety of wear to give you a variety of styling options! You can order just about any of Brittan's bows with the closure of your liking and I LOVE that!

Pinup in Paradise: Part 2 (ft. Grace Karin)

As you may recall from last week's post, I was rocking some lovely Grace Karin dresses on my honeymoon a couple weeks ago (argh, take me back to Costa Rica!). While my first post showcased a swing style dress that is totally my speed, this week I am excited to share a more fitted style that I opted for to add some variety to the trip.

Pinup in Paradise: Part 1 (ft. Grace Karin)

Shortly before Halloween, the team over at Grace Karin (one of Amazon Fashion's biggest style brands) reached out to me about a collaboration. It was PERFECT timing, really, as my wedding was right around the corner and I had just started planning what I'd bring with me to our honeymoon.

Where's Waldo? (Happy Halloween!)

Happy Halloween, my little peanuts!

Can you spot me?

I'm coming at you live from a crowded space where you'll have to work really hard to determine "Where's Sara?" or is it more fitting to ask "Where's Saraldo?" Hmm or "Where's Walda?"

Halloween Inspiration: Emily Elizabeth

I may not have any actual Halloween plans this year to wear a real costume to but I wanted to keep the annual tradition alive of sharing a fun costume on the blog.

I also noticed a pattern in the last few years of my costumes - I get A LOT of my inspiration from books and childhood nostalgia.

Vegan Pumpkin Donuts

How did I let it get so late into Fall without baking a Fall themed treat to share!? WHO AM I?

Well there's no time like the present and now that we're in full October mode, I decided it was time to go full on pumpkin themed and make us some donuts.

Strawberry Jammin' (Joanie Clothing)

I did something I have never done in the nearly 4 years of blogging (side note: 4 YEARS?!) last week. I took an unexpected and unannounced break from posting.

Aria Western Rose (Collectif)

Ladies and gentlemen, I present you with what may be the most beautiful dress I have ever put on my body.

Back to School (Bernie Dexter)

Though I have not gone "back to school" in 8 years, I couldn't resist a Back to School themed post for this week after I snagged this paint palette Mari dress by Bernie Dexter earlier this summer during one her big sales.

The PINEapple of My Eye (Collectif)

Muahahahhaha! Did I not warn you that I had more fruity fun coming your way? DID I NOT?

No one should be surprised to see me rocking this pineapple dress from Collectif. If you are, frankly I don't know that you know me all too well...

Collar me Teal-riffic (Collectif)

Look at that satisfying title - two puns? TWO? You can't get any better than that...

Oh Collectif Clothing. You sneaky little minx. Here I was, minding my own business and not buying TOO many new clothes in the last 6 months or so and then they go and have another one of their end of the season 50% blow out sales.

Gingham & Sunshine (Andrea Makes Things)

I am always always willing to spend money with small businesses. Especially in the fashion world - the retro/vintage fashion world, more specifically - where gals with mad sewing skills are creating beautiful garments that I could never dream of creating.

MORE Watermelon?! (Chic Wish)

If you think the fruit themed outfit posts are just about over - you'd be terribly mistaken.

This past weekend was the 2nd annual Viva East Rockabilly Weekender and seeing as it took place just 20 minutes North of my house, you betcha I was there!

Wisteria Hysteria (Joanie Clothing)

Do I now have 2 dresses with the name Wisteria? Yes, it appears I do.

Luckily, the original Wisteria dress I got from Tatyana last Spring is the loveliest lavendar colored dress and nothing like this adorable floral and ready for summer dress from Joanie Clothing. They just share the same name!

In Bloom (Collectif x ModCloth)

ModCloth has stepped up their game lately.

When I heard Collectif and ModCloth were collaborating this Spring, I got curious. As you may recall, Collectif has quickly risen up the ranks and is by far one of my top 3 brands to buy from lately.
