what I love: garters!

Okay, ladies (and gents, if you're out there) there's a tradition that some of us have forgotten about or decided to do away with or thought was silly, etc, etc, etc - that must come back. That tradition is the garter!

This week I'm loving garters! A garter has a long and sorted history, as one of my favorite garter makers in the industry outlined for us. But let's remember, the history of the garter doesn't define it's present. Because let me be the first to tell you - it's "present" is undeniably fabulous!

At one point in time, the garter may have just been a tool to hold up one's socks, now they're a tool to get those socks kicked off right quick! I assure you that the right one will do wonders! If you want it to scream "sexy", there are sexy ones.

If you want it to whisper "demure", there are demure ones.

But no matter what you want your garter to say, ladies, I say, "make sure you've got one for your big day"! Garters are what I love this week? What do you think? Do you love them too?

Many of us out there think that as soon as the summer sun has begun to set, we can no longer include bright colors in our color schemes. Au contraire! Tangerine is a fabulous color that, due to its warm tone, works amazingly well in all spring, summer and FALL color schemes - and it's beautiful to boot!

It can be incorporated in little details - just like in the perfect wedding featured above, or it can even take center stage as your bridal bouquet! Don't forget that you can pair it with any beautiful neutral in order to complement nearly any wedding theme or ambiance!

What do you think? Do you love, love tangerine?
