Unofficial Bridesmaid Details

Generally I do NOT like shopping and I am beginning to think it is because I need a "theme" when I shop. (Is it the designer in me that needs a theme? Hmmm) So, that being said—I had a BLAST putting my unofficial bridesmaid outfit together. It really helped me to have a visual goal in mind.

Above is a bracelet my grandma was going to throw away (this is when I was around 8 or 9 years old) but she gave to me instead. For years I thought it was the ugliest thing—but could never get rid of it. Now I am so glad I kept it!

Then I started searching for a matching necklace...but it dawned on me that I could make a fascinator to match instead! It turned out perfect. (Below) And the earings (Above) were the last to be added.

Then I got lucky and I found these shoes two days before the wedding! I never thought I'd have a pair of gold shoes...but I LOVE them! (Guess brand.)

I tried to capture other accessory details at the wedding, those will be posted soon! (Have I used enough exclamation marks yet?)

Do you have a blast putting together you're special occasion outfits? Did you discover something sitting around the house that suddenly worked out perfectly? Send it in and we'll share it on the blog!
