Spring is here and we’ve been seeing some stunning shoes gallivanting around the city. The footwear market has been nothing short of perfect so far. Each shoe we’ve seen has more and more embellishments on them. Some shoes are almost too pretty to wear. Rather than indulging on something costly, revamp an old pair with some of our trims. They will be one of a kind and wallet friendly.
With Spring in the Air, I am obsessed with making accessories to wear especially with floral or lace designs for this season. Here is a fun and girly accessory to make for an everyday outfit, perfect for the blooming season.

To celebrate the joyous return of spring, Victoria magazine’s wrote about it’s Rhapsody in Roses, in their March/April 2010 issue. A feminine fashion statement made for centuries has always been with rose motifs. Use a gaint cabbage pin from M&J Trimming to embellish a straw hat for the spring.

While planning my wedding for spring of 2007, I was in a tizzy trying to get everything done and come up with ideas while keeping it cool with my soon to be in-laws. Floral arrangements, menu options, favors, gifts and attire were keeping me busy just about 24/7!
However, M&J made my life a bit easier since they provided such a wide variety in one place. The gorgeous silk ribbons and Swarovski rhinestones were just what I was looking for to add a little something extra special to my wedding day. I was able to glue rhinestones to all my accessories, but I had to stop short of bedazzling my cat in the excitement of it all.
I remember carefully arranging the rose stems and crystal sprays for my bouquet (while getting my hair done. Wrapping the stems with silk satin ribbon in ivory to match my dress. The result was just the way I wanted. It was a great feeling to tell my friends that I made the bouquet when they asked about it. However, I wish I had thought of using silk roses like my friend did for her bouquet. My poor bouquet that I had made is now all dried out and sad looking. Silk roses would have still looked fresh and new everyday as my husband and I grow old and wrinkled together.
Now that I work at M&J, it has been really fun and exciting for me to help soon-to-be-brides make their big day special. I’m able to lend advice on what I learned from planning my wedding and giving options on the choices they make. I look forward to making this blog helpful for all brides-to-be.
