There are so many blog posts and magazine articles about things that brides are TIRED of hearing but there are also things that Bride’s adore hearing! Here are my top ten things that Brides love hearing!

  1. “I am SO happy for you!!” Obvious but it still feels amazing to revel in your joy with a friend or someone you’ve never met.
  2. “You and _____ make such a wonderful couple. I know how much you love each other.” (This is what the entire wedding should be about, how much you truly love one another. I love it when people remind me they see it too!)
  3. “How is work/school/sport?” (It might sound strange but sometimes I just don’t want to talk about my wedding. I know. Totally nuts. It can be easy to forget that there is more to life than weddings when you’re about to have one. I always appreciate when anyone asks how the REST of my life is coming along!)
  4. “What can I do to help?” (Being a bride is extremely overwhelming at times, and even though she probably won’t take up your offer to help it feels good to know someone cares enough to ask. <3 )
  5. “Would you like me to come to your _____ appointment with you?” (This is one of my favourite things anyone can say lately because there are so many meetings, appointments, fittings etc. and especially when family isn’t close, having friends around for support means the world!)
  6. “Where are you registered?” 😉 (Self explanatory)
  7. “I can’t wait to be part of your special day!”
  8. “I love your choice of ______! It’s so beautiful and unique!” (Even though a bride is confident in her personal touches for her wedding, it still feelings ah-mazing when someone else recognizes all the extra effort you put in!)
  9. “I know of a great app/site/person that can do ____ for less!” (Everyone knows how incredibly expensive weddings are/can be, and if someone finds a great deal and wants to share their tips and tricks with you- it’s even better!)
  10. “I wish and pray for a long life of happiness together”. (This is the thing that can bring a tear to my eye no matter who says it. Giving your well wishes to a couple who is about to embark on a new journey together is truly the greatest gift you can ever give a couple.) <3

When I first moved to NYC last August (on the first to be exact) I really wasn’t totally sure of what was to come next. I knew I wanted to move to New York as a child. Even with the uncertainty of what I wanted out of life, and what I wanted to do with my career- I always knew that one day I would move to NYC. I am extremely fortunate that my fiancé also wanted to move to New York, and we had talked about it for four years. After my fiancé Brendan gradated from university in North Carolina, we both knew the time had come to make the big move.  View Full Post

This past Tuesday, I was finally able to experience something I have been wanting to do for several years now. I had diner at the Versace mansion. It even sounds dreamy to type. I always wondered if it would be like that one episode on the Kardashians (anyone remember this) and to my surprise, it was pretty similar. For a more elaborate tour I suggest you watch this. 🙂 View Full Post

I’ve been thinking very seriously about the future of V&C lately.

Why should you care about what I have to say? On Fashion, beauty or any of it?

Because I’m a real girl breaking into the industry without the formal fashion background. I work in fashion but I still eat Taco Bell and wear sweatpants.

I realize that my blog and writing about fashion has taken a back seat and I’ve been feeling the need to sugar coat things. So, I’ve decided no longer! I will be honest with myself and everyone else.

Because if fashion wasn’t fun, why would anyone care?
