Awesomely Frugal Fashion Fridays: Etsy's "Silver Lining"

Hey Gorgeouses,
Today's AAAF is from my favorite website/online retailer/art gallery, Etsy! I buy loads of things from Etsy, and I think I'll stock up on some of this fun and inexpensive jewelry from Silver Lining Jewelry. I stumbled upon one of the necklaces and fell in love with pretty much the entire shop! Here are a few faves.

Mini Initial and Bird Necklace, $14(A for AWESOME!) get it here.

Envelope Love Necklace, $24, because e-mails and texts just aren't the same, get it here.

Golden Silk necklace, $21. Wrap up a cute outfit, get it here.

As always, Happy Shopping!

Awesome Engagement Photos

Happy Sunday. As many of my friends are getting engaged and taking amazing engagement photos, I seem to be finding loads of awesome ideas for props, poses, and themes. As I gear up a post about retro swimsuits, here's some amazing engagement photos to kick things off. These come courtesy of the Green Wedding Shoes blog and feature photographer Tim Melideo (who shot these on a tripod) and his lovely fiance, Merrill-Ashley (great name, huh!?). See the rest of the shots here.
