Mix and Match Bridesmaids

There’s weddings that match and then there’s weddings that don’t. Personally, I have a thing for the one’s that don’t. Mixing and matching of styles and colors, shoes and dresses, accessories and flowers, is such a great and fun way to create weddings that are not only very personal and sort of intimate, but also truly unique and one-of-a-kind. Not to mention entertaining! Don’t know about you, but I am always amazed by how incredibly creative some people are in terms of expressing their own personality in every little detail of their wedding. A rainbow of rubber boots, unusual dresses and shoes, one-of-a-kind necklaces & bracelets, stylish belts, a potpourri of flowers, handcrafted clutches,… – everything designed to allow us a glimpse at the personality of bride and groom without even knowing them, mixed and matched to perfection! What’s not to love?!?!

And, speaking of one-of-a-kind jewelry, there’s, of course, a lucky elephant bracelet for every color …

Thursday’s Color is Purple!

Did you know that??? I certainly did not, but I’m glad Google taught me …

But that’s not all I learned today. According to Google, purple not only is Tursday’s color, but also the color of good judgment. It is the color of people seeking spiritual fulfillment. It is said if you surround yourself with purple you will have peace of mind. Purple has been used to symbolize magic and mystery, as well as royalty. Being the combination of red and blue, the warmest and coolest colors, purple is believed to be the ideal color. Purple is the color most favored by artists.

Are you in your closet yet? Digging for those purple clothes and accessories??? Dig deep or go out and get some, and – hopefully – peace of mind will be all yours soon… Fingers crossed!

If you happen to live in Chicago, you might want to head over to the The Purple Pig now. Not only will it increase your chances of being rewarded with even more peace of mind (the more purple the more peace?…), but amazing food will also be yours and yummi (purple?) wine too, if you like.
