Redo: The Trench

I know I already blogged about trench coats, but I want this one:

The trench

And if it came with an Hermes birkin, I’d be in heaven. Swoon…

What do you call this?!

I’m dying to know what that pearl-and-gold accent on this cardigan is. (I once saw one featured in a Chanel ad years ago, and I’ve been wondering ever since.) Any costume designers or fashion nerds out there know?

Things to do with your wedding photos

I’m a sucker for collages. So I made one of our wedding photos (the sketch at the top was a gift from Graylyn, where we married, and please ignore the empty frame on the right–I ordered the photo for that frame in the wrong size).

I’m still smitten with this setup! It even prompted us to buy a new couch and redecorate a bit. But if you’re looking for something more streamlined, why not try a one-canvas collage of square imges? I wouldn’t mind a version of this in my house (template available from Design Aglow):

Or you could break out the hot glue gun and get crafty, like Ashley did. I might try this in the kitchen.

And of course, there’s always the traditional wedding album. You can get some beyond-fabulous albums from professional photographers, but I wanted creative control over ours (we made two, one for Jon’s folks and another for my mom, for Christmas), so I designed ours in InDesign, then ordered them through Blurb. The print and paper quality weren’t as great as they could have been had we ordered from Finao through our photographers, but I was extremely pleased with how they turned out!
