Bridgette’s Pick of the Week – Carolee Word Play Bangles


In August, I attended the Carolee Fall/Holiday Press Preview. Carolee is one of my go-to resources for stylish fashion jewelry for formal or semi-formal occasions.

They too make excellent bridesmaids gifts and are so fun for stacking. [Read more...]

Although the average couple takes 14 months to plan their nuptials, a wedding — a fun and stylish one at that — can be planned in less than a year. Don’t think that’s possible? Think again.
