This past weekend Chad and I went to pick up his wedding band….after looking at a couple of stores, we settled on Teno in Soho [they also have a website]. He was looking for something simple and comfortable, and a little architectural….we ended up getting the first image…a stainless steel band with silver inlay. I think its very him, and while it doesn’t match my set, its sort of reminiscent of it, which I like. Teno has all sorts of bands, some with diamond, metal inlays, rubber or ceramic inlays, but all with a very minimal aesthetic.

The new InStyle Weddings website is up and better than ever! Lots of galleries and fun pics to look at, so take a look! I love these hairstyles…

I’ll just come out and say it….I hate the Superbowl. Football and me just don’t get along…but it does give me an excuse to get some wedding stuff out of the way. Being an interior designer gives me access to a lot of gorgeous fabrics….I’m actually using a bunch of them for the wedding in my centerpieces….and I happened to have a remnant of one of my favorites to use for my ring pillow. So, while Chad watched the game…I broke out the sewing machine and got crackin. Ring pillows have got to be the easiest sewing project ever, and this one literally took me about 20 minutes from start to finish. If you’re interested in me posting some directions, let me know….but I think the process is pretty self-explanatory. Its a nice way to tie in your colors and personality.

I was lucky enough to get to see Herve Leger‘s first New York runway show ever this past Sunday and it really was a sight to see! At the end was a fabulous dress that could definitely pose as a wedding dress for some stick thin reader…or someone with some major Spanx underneath! I don’t know how I missed out on seeing all the celebs that were there!!
