Small + Delicate

Happy Monday everyone!  And happy Passover to those of you celebrating this week.  As we do nearly every year, we'll be going to a seder tonight with some very good friends and I just can't wait for this evening to arrive.  So in the meantime, I thought I'd help pass the time with these beautiful necklaces from Stone + Honey and Polli:

I don't usually wear a lot of gold jewelry, but lately I've been drawn to small, delicate, and intricate gold necklaces like the ones above.  The honeycomb pattern from Stone + Honey is definitely on my wishlist, but I also love the whimsy of Polli's tea time necklace.

From the invitations (Paper + Cup) to the calligraphy (Paperfinger) to the amazing vintage photograph table runner and centerpieces (by Hatch Creative Studio), Vané pulled together an amazing group of vendors for a beautiful show.  I wish I could have been there in person!  I'm sure Vané will be doing a more extensive review of the show on Brooklyn Bride and the Urban Wed blog, but in the meantime you can read about the experience on Ruffled, Papertastebuds, and Paper + Cup.

I've been loving all the coverage of the NY fall fashion shows this week.  It feels a bit strange to be so enamored of collections for NEXT fall when I'm so busy wishing for spring to arrive, but these looks are just too pretty to resist:

Wilfred Spring/Summer 2010

We’re still pretty much snowed-in here in DC, and by now I’m just about desperate for any signs that spring is just around the corner.  I’m loving these breezy tops and dresses from the Wilfred spring/summer 2010 collection:

Ah, to be able to wear shorts and skirts without tights again…  soon, hopefully!
