In case you have not been all over instagram or pinterest lately, kimono robes are everywhere.

We were just perusing Dessy, one of our favorite bridal sites, to see if they might have anything special for the holiday season and stumbled upon these pretty pashminas. Wrap the special gals in your life in luxury! Pashmina shawls are elegant for evening or formal wear, and stylish for casual wear too. Wrap a pashmina stole around bare shoulders for a touch of late-evening warmth, or tie around your neck for casual panache. They not only make perfect bridesmaid gifts but they are lovely holiday gifts, birthday gifts and any time gifts. In addition to weddings, think holiday party attire, New Year's party dress accessories, gala formal wear, and special occasion celebrations of all kinds. We think every well-dressed gal should own at least one, and preferably multiple, pretty pashminas. And at just $28.00 they will not blow your budget but still look very expensive. Continue Reading →
I happened to be poking around The Knot this morning especially interested in checking out their escort card ideas and by chance came across this lovely bridesmaid gift – a simple black clutch filled with survival kit essentials. I loved everything about it except maybe the bright teal initials but turns out that is an easy fix — either click the “do not personalize” option or have each bridesmaid's initials embroidered in black thread. Black on black is always timeless and elegant. I promise you, each and everyone of your bridesmaids will still be using this classic clutch 30 years from now.
