    Happy Friday, BABs! You know how much we love a solid wedding dress around here, and while we’re still on the fence about rompers (though they look super cute on some) we are definitely on board with wedding pants options. After digging through the archives and realizing we, um, haven’t really covered wedding pants, I figured it was high time we had a Five for Friday dedicated to the sophisticated, sleek and super chic option for your nuptials. Not everyone is a dress person — hell, I’m barely a dress person, but man do I love wedding dresses — and there are some amazingly stunning pants options out there for those ladies.

    Hello my BAB's! BHLDN strikes for a 3rd time since I started writing this column. Don't worry, though, in this case 3 strikes doesn't mean you're out. We love you too much here!

    What up, BABs?! This week we are helping yet another lovely, bride-to-be, Lauren find the perfect dress. Yay! Something about Amsale's "Harbor" dress spoke to her and she has fallen in love. The almost $5,000 price tag, however, is NOT so lovable. I fell in love with Amsale myself a few years ago when I watched an episode of "Brothers & Sisters" where Rachel Griffiths'…

    It's that time again, dolls! I've scoured the far reaches of the Interwebz for deals and discounts to help you shop a little easier this weekend. Me? Oh, I'm going to relax with some watermelon juice and hopefully a pool. xoxo! I don't know about you, but having fancy stationery always makes me want to actually want to send letters so I can show it off. Paper…
