The lovely Erica Elizabeth has wowed us last year with her Nature Inspired 2013 collection and she’s back this year with a magical, fairy tale-worthy I Wish I May 2014 collection. I sooo love that there are a couple of tiaras (yes, princess crowns!) in her dreamy set this year, just enough to awaken the royalty in you. Erica has stayed true in crafting the most stunning pieces, using only the finest materials, and sprinkling her very own pixie-dust in each piece… so that each and every of her lovely headpiece carries about a certain magical feel you just cannot ignore. As Erica shares what inspired her, “I was pulled toward the youthful crown and tiara fashions, worn for centuries as a sign of nobility and aristocratic grace. These special designs, marked by exquisite fabrics and unique textures, are crafted with my signature care to make each piece a lasting treasure.”
Erica continues to marry the past and the present through her designs and creates exquisitely crafted heirlooms that build lifetime of memories. I personally had a hard time choosing which ones are my favorites, I think I love them all!
I’m sure you’re all excited and eager to see the rest, so I won’t hold you any longer. Be enamored with the rest of Erica Elizabeth Designs‘s 2014 collection!

Seriously, I have to visit this store. Heima is a home and lifestyle haven that offers whimsical, quirky furniture and all kinds of oh-so-colorfully-chic home decor. And oh boy, do we have a treat! Cool couple Zill and Jinky decided to make Heima their playground for the day and had their e-sesh shot in full at this little store of happiness.
Full of fun poses, and of all things bright and beautiful – this e-sesh was something that could make any dull day instantly brighter. Captured by the quirky and insanely talented headmaster of Quirky Creatives - Noel Salazar, every shot in this e-sesh was puuur-fect to a T. Details were highlighted and emotions lovingly captured. The place, the photographer and the couple were all perfect together and their 3-hit combo has given us this one set of wonderful explosion of vibrant colors, whimsical deets and one big riot of pure fun!
It’s definitely a happy day today here at the blog, cherries! Check out the rest of this e-sesh below and you’ll see why! Enjoy!

This classic tale of star-crossed lovers, Romeo and Juliet, comes alive in this 1996 Baz Luhrmann film where modern meets vintage. The original dialogue was retained – to my delight – I love it when they make Shakespeare’s plays into films and use the original lines.

What I love about the style in this film is that, it managed to stay hip and modern but did not veer away too much from vintage touches. It is a beautiful clash of old and new, and I thought, what an excellent idea to steal for a wedding theme. This film inspired me to come up with a look that is ethereal and edgy at the same time. Lush flowers are to be used but will be in deeper shades of purple, mauve and dusty rose.

I also love the idea of colored bottles labelled as love potions. You could fill them up with your favorite fragrance, or better yet, a dose of your favorite wine and give them out as wedding favors.
One of my favorite parts in the film was the masquerade ball and Juliet’s winged angel costume. Oh, I adore those wings! Why not wear a pair and jazz up your bridal ensemble a bit?
This Romeo + Juliet wedding theme is all about wild abandon and a euphoria of love and carefree beauty.
