  • Gold Chain Sparkle Wedding Garter - Behold our newest Limited Edition Bridal Garter!

    Hold the phone!!! We have a brand new limited-edition garter that was released today! And when we tell you that she is amazing, we mean like Beyonce-Superbowl-halftime-mic-drop-beauty!
    There is very literally nothing like our new Oh So L.A. garter on the market at the moment!
    gold chain sparkle garter
    The back story: our new Oh-So-L.A. garter was designed for the fashion-forward bride. Never afraid to take risks, this bride is very-well-known for being a trendsetter. ⛓ She adores all things edgy and original, whether it be in accessories, film, or music. 🎶  More likely than not, this bride adores the style of Hailey Bieber, Ariana Grande, Rihanna, and Gwen Stefani. Rule breaker? Check and check. 🖤
    This bride somehow puts a daring and fresh twist on just about everything she does. Some describe her as a trail-blazer. Others describe her as reckless. To her, living life with no regrets and a great sense of living life to the fullest are the two most important things in the world. 💗  More likely than not, this bride will be wearing a non-traditional gown on her wedding day. (Please note: if you are a bride who is distinctly traditional in style, then this is not the garter for you.) 🙅🏼‍♀️

    But wait. Bad news: once this garter sells out, she will go #LaGartierExtinct. And extinct means forever. As of today, February 21st, 2022, we have exactly four left in stock. However, by the end of this spring, she will most certainly be gone. If for any reason you are reading this blog at some point in late 2022 or early 2023 and we do not have this design in stock anymore, then feel free to email us at so that we can do our best to help you! 
    Love ya'll. Mean it.
  • In The Studio With Portraits By Kaye

    Last month, I had the pleasure of working with a talented photographer here in the Atlanta area named Kaye Snyder of Portraits by Kaye. She took a few new headshots for myself...which was a task that was long overdue. In an attempt to thank Kaye completely, I am dedicating this blog to the photos she took that day. To anyone reading this: if you live in the Atlanta area and are in need of some new professional content for your business, I highly recommend Kaye Snyder of Portraits by Kaye! She and her husband recently built a high-functioning studio that is camera and video ready. Kaye, thank you so much for all of your professional talents. I am forever grateful!
    Below are just a few photos that Kaye took of our studio environment, plus a few fun headshots, just two weeks ago. THANK YOU KAYE SNYDER!!
