I’m a huge fan of fall weddings. The air is a little crisper and longer length dresses are a little more en vogue as a result. Plus jewel tones and autumn affairs go together like cake and frosting, and I’m not complaining. In fact, this fall I’m coordinating a friend’s wedding and she’s rocking a gorgeous rose gold sequin gown while her bridesmaids will be donning their own floor-length jewel tone frocks. My heart is aflutter with anticipation¬†(as yours should be, because you bet your butt I’mma be posting that stunnah all up in this bish). As luck would have it, ModCloth has a seriously ridic selection of gorgeous gowns in jewel tones right now — mostly under $100 — and (natch) I found my five faves for you, darling!

    Happy Friday, Broke-Asses! It’s been a crazy week around here, what with the awesomeness of the David’s Bridal sale, summer being her all-too-tempting-to-play-hooky self, the return of Ask Liz and so much more. When things get a little insane, I tend to fall down the rabbit hole of the Internet, and all too often find myself daydreaming about pretty dresses, fun home stuff and accessories … always accessories. Fab.com, one of my go-to resources for amazing design-centric decor, has a wedding shop. And nestled within that wedding shop is a great selection of jewelry and accessories, amazing for you or your crew. Here are five of my favorite finds, all under $100:Dual Stone Ring Onyx || Five for Friday: Accessories that are Simply Fab

    Dual Stone Ring Onyx, $62

    I’m a junkie for black diamonds and onyx. And opal is my birth stone. And I love rings (ALL THE RINGS). This pretty takes my breath away.Lapis Triangle Threaded Earring || Five for Friday: Accessories that are Simply Fab

    Lapis Triangle Threader Earrings, $30

    Something blue, anyone? These earrings would be great with a boho-y dress or a super-structured but offbeat gown. They give a little bit of a rock (pun intended) edge to your look.Herkimer Diamond Bracelet || Five for Friday: Accessories that are Simply Fab

    Herkimer Diamond Bracelet, $45

    Ugh, Herkimer diamonds. These rough-cut diamonds are specific to an are of New York, hence the name. I’ve been ogling a ring on Etsy forever with a Herkimer diamond, but I think this pretty bracelet would do juuuuust fine for a wedding day and all the days beyond.Mountain Range Ring|| Five for Friday: Accessories that are Simply Fab

    Mountain Range Ring, $59

    Initially, I thought this ring was more of a band that maintained its height all the way around. I was wrong, but it doesn’t make the ring any less badass.¬†Button Pouch || Five for Friday: Accessories that are Simply Fab

    Button Pouch, $95

    We’re big fans of marbling around here, and this pouch is no exception. It’s also available in a pretty blue, but I’m totally digging the pink and lime combination on this one.

    Shark Cake Topper

    It's Shark Week! I tend to get really excited about it, but then the reality hits that I have cut the cable cord, so I have to be content with rewatching "Jaws" for the bajillionth time (SyFy's "Malibu Shark Attack" also comes into play ... but drinking games are totes necessary for that one). Nautical wedding themes are a thing (we all know that, right?),…

    Memorial Day Weekend is kind of the unofficial ushering in of summer. Barbecues, parades, graduation ... the warm months have arrived! And if you're anything like me, that means getting thee to a body of water as frequently as possible to beat the heat (or hangover ... I swear it's the best cure). Obviously, then, that means upping your swimsuit game -- especially if you're…

    When¬†BAB¬†Cynthia hit us up on Facebook, she had a solid idea of what she wanted. As we set out to give her some inspiration, a disappointing fact became obvious: even though more and more brides are opting for some color on their wedding day, designers don't have nearly as many offerings for the plus size ladies out there, especially not at budget-friendly prices. As time…

    Caticorn Shower Curtain

    So, I like unicorns (I mean, it's in my job title, y'all) and they're kind of the unofficial mascot of BAB / my spirit animal. And I love cats (which you know if you follow me on Instagram), and recently a buttload of CAT UNICORNS have been gracing my social media, thanks to my friends who know full well the ish I dig. And it…
