Gift Guide 2014 (Undeclared Panache)

Today is the day I share my annual personal Holiday Wish list.  This year was so full of great happenings and changes that I don't feel like I really need anything!  However, if anyone wants to get me a gift anyway, below are the items I'm lusting after. 


1. Fujifilm Instax instant camera, because sometimes physical photos are fun too, especially if they are instant.

2. Wireless speakers, the piece of the entertaining piece of the puzzle I've been missing.

3. These handmade, gold-rimmed dessert plates from Suite one Studio, would look so amazing with my current selection of colored glass.

4. I'd even let this pick slide as a Christmas/birthday gift,  I have been obsessing over this moonstone ring for quite some time now.

5. Adorably charming vases.

6. a sophisticated, yet whimsical leather phone case, can even be monogramed!

7. In contrast to the modern speakers, wouldn't it be fun to have a gold record player to create the perfect ambiance?

8. The new Kate Spade coffee table book, "Places to Go, People to See," because every gal needs a little more charm in her livingroom.

9. a farm-fresh flower subscription from The Bouqs would keep me happy all year long.

10. The prettiest decanter I ever did see.

Wedding Wednesday (Inspired by Bella Diamond Ring)


The inspiration for this perfect, elegant, vintage-inspired, relaxed wedding, came from the beautiful new collection at Brilliant Earth, the Belle Epoque Collection.  The Belle Epoque Collection combines old world craftsmanship, Victorian Nouveau styling with the ethical and quality standards the company has built their name on.  As a lover of vintage jewelry this collection had my name written all over it.  While I loved every piece in the new collection, the floral-inspired Bella Diamond Ring is definitely my favorite.  The unique beauty inspired the inspiration mood board above,  filled with muted colors, whimsical florals and a relaxed air of elegance.  If you're searching for an engagement ring, wedding band or any piece of fine jewelry Brilliant Earth is a trusted jeweler with beautiful pieces and practices you can feel good about supporting.
