  • Black Friday Sale Packaging Prototype Number 2: Christmas At The Biltmore

    Ladies and Gentleman!!! Eeeeep! May we present to you our second packaging design- “Christmas At The Biltmore!” 🎄
    Created using hand-cut silk, red-gingham-printed taffeta (for the ribbons that tie around the box, and tiny crystal heart detailing, this packaging design was made to say opulent in the most Vanderbilt way imaginable. The best part? The wax seal on the back of your envelope will be made using gold glitter dust, faux Christmas pine, and YOUR OWN custom initial at the center. ✍🏼
    (I would be willing to bet one thousand dollars says that there was more than a little wax stamping happening at The Biltmore during the days it was built. Actually, hang on…let me Google that …I bet it was a custom “V” stamp.)
    ANYWHOOOO….tomorrow, we will put the two wildly different packaging prototypes to a vote!!! Really…it just comes down to what type of person you are! Are you more “old world romance” or are you more of a “pretty in pearls” type of gal? The packaging design that receives the most votes will be chosen as THE exclusive packaging design for our upcoming sale!!! (November 25th-November 28th!) 🖤 Fun fact: We only change our packaging once a year. That time is now. We cannot wait to see which design you vote for! 🖤

    This bottle is a limited edition 755 millileter Veuve Clicquot Rose bottle! Trimmed with woven, pearl-embellished detailing, we created this bottle to be as demure and polite as Coco Chanel herself. 
    Our favorite part? The top neck of this bottle features a 3-D floral design, added to mimic the bouquet of your dreams.

  • La Gartier Bride Samantha Sasso Slays In Our Rhinestone Sparkle Garter

    Chic. Modern. Candid.
    These are three words that describe La Gartier bride Samantha Sasso's ultra-modern, love-filled wedding day!! Don't believe us? Just take a quick look at the photos below. Before I gush away about her wedding garter style, I want to take a moment to highlight how well these photos from Days Made Of Love Photography capture the happiness of the day first and foremost. Not all candid photos are created the same in my opinion, however these images hit the nail on the head when it comes to embodying energy, love, and pure joy. It comes as a side note (ahem- side joy) that her La Gartier garter is visible in just about every.single.one of these images too....which brings me to another important point: Samantha's wedding day style strikes me as tremendously effortless while also being the literal embodiment of gorgeous happy. It's like that girl in high school that always looked perfect while also appearing as if she never even tried. Maddening, really. However, perhaps the true secret to Samantha's beauty in these photos is truly just her body language. I mean, her garter and her dress are spot on, but just look at that relaxed, truly happy body language! I might just pass away.

    If you look closely, you will see a slight glimmer of sparkle peeking out from the slit of Samantha's gown. These garters are two of our favorites: the rhinestone sparkle garter! Interested to get Samantha's look? Click here to see the rhinestone sparkle garter...but I must warn you: in order to get her complete look, you'll have to order TWO. 
    Well, well, well. If it isn't the classic Jimmy Choo + La Gartier combination. Ladies and Gentleman, hold your applause. It gets better!
    bling wedding garter
    I hate to play favorites-- but this just might be my favorite photo taken of Samantha's garters! If for nothing else, this image proves (without a doubt) that a slit + a La Gartier garter + an excellent pair of wedding shoes is the SLAY combo of 2022!! A huge thank you for Days Made of Love Photography for immortalizing this moment!! 

    Samantha's ultra slim, unbelievably chic bridal garter was the statement of her entire wedding look!! 

    Thank you to Samantha for not only sending us these images, but for also leaving us the sweetest review ever on Google!!!
