It's my birthday, I can buy if I want to.

Guess who turns 36 today? Moi. I'm officially in my "late 30s". Can't think of a reason not to share a list of my current (and ever quirky) Etsy faves. On that note, I'm off for a little getaway. Enjoy! ;)

Cake stands on Etsy.

Etsy seller Jeanette Zeis creates soft and lovely "vessels and wares" in all shapes and sizes. I particularly like her pretty cake stands. Wouldn't a collection of these be lovely at a wedding reception?

Ever delicious J.Crew.

Dear J.Crew, you never do wrong by me. Now, if I could get a sample pair of each of these shoes sent to Maida Vale HQ, that would be great! For the record, I would totally throw on any of your bridesmaid dresses over skinny jeans to get more wear out of them post-wedding, as well.

Happy weekend, everyone!

One great gown.

How fun and flirty is this "Suzie" gown from the Steven Birnbaum collection? I think I'd prefer it at full length, but regardless, it's adorable. Hope you all have a great weekend!

Etsy find: Fabric roses by Brydferth.

I adore these fabric roses by Hailey Rose of Brydferth. Her color choices are fresh and modern and the designs are feminine and fun. I especially love the orange ring shown below. So pretty! Be sure to visit her shop to see the entire collection.

A simple + lovely cherry-inspired wedding.

I could stare at these peaceful photos of Cathleen & Eric's rustic wedding for some time. The setting is gorgeous, the decoration is simple but sophisticated, and I love all the cherries! It's just amazing.

Etsy find: Jewelry by Alona Freeman.

It seems like ages since I've posted a good Etsy jewelry find. But, lucky you, I've stumbled across a great one! Alona Freeman creates beautiful, modern pieces from vintage finds. The resulting looks are colorful and charming statement pieces that look like they've walked off the pages of an Anthropologie catalog. I'm naturally drawn to the aqua colored pieces. Which are your faves?

Maida Vale on Style Me Pretty.

Recently featured at Style Me Pretty, Sherry + Jed's wedding came together so perfectly. They chose a palette of yellow and gray, and mixed in many modern, handmade elements. The flowers, however, leave me speechless. They're so colorful and sophisticated! I'm honored that my table numbers could play a small part in such a gorgeous event. Full credits (and many more photos!) follow at the above link. Congratulations, Sherry + Jed!
