A LACEY Valentine
With Valentine's Day around the corner my mind is on lace, tulle, and bridal accessories. I was recently asked by a friend in Washington state to design her bridal veil. I'm so honored and excited to design for her special day. She's a strong and gorgeous woman AND she's a great person. I'll keep you posted on the design progress!

Speaking of Valentine's...I'm seeing tons of lingerie ads EVERYWHERE. I'm not a huge fan of Victoria Secret and Frederick's of Hollywood Lingerie. They focus a little too much on objectifying women. They focus on women with perfect bodies in their advertisements which perpetuates bad body images for women and the lingerie isn't very exciting.
I recently came across an independent Lingerie Designer on etsy - Ohhh Lulu Lingerie and Apparel. I LOVE her vintage inspired lingerie and photographs. To me these items are much sexier. If you're looking to buy some special lingerie I strongly suggest something like this. The vintage inspired look is so lovely!
