Remember how excited I was to have found my wedding dress at J.Crew a few months back? Well, I’ve changed my mind! I still love and admire the original pick, but just haven’t been able to pull the trigger. We’ll be moving come June and I don’t want to settle on a dress until I know where I’ll be wearing it. I still want a small garden ceremony, but would love to it to take place in our new city (I’m currently rooting for Washington D.C.). Anywho, I came across the dress above at Anthropologie last week and was instantly charmed. Perhaps a simple, champagne tea length dress is the way to go?

I just received my catalog from The Metropolitan Museum of Art Store and am smitten with these three pairs of antique-y earrings. I became a member of the museum when I lived in Manhattan last year and it was deadly—not only is the art collection unparalleled, but the gift shop is an art lover’s Eden. The turquoise and pearl “forget-me-not” sets are based on a design by Peter Carl Fabergé that was popular in 19th century Russia. The last pair of daisies is also based on a Fabergé design, drawn from an individual flower in his famed Basket of Wild Flowers Egg. How I adore history…especially when combined with costume jewelry.
