BHLDN Week: Something Pretty Picks


BHLDN has so many beautiful products–from dreamy dresses, to gorgeous shoes, to some of the most creative, fun decor I’ve ever seen. For my Something Pretty Picks, I tried to choose pieces that could transition seamlessly from weddings to parties and home decor. Many of BHLDN‘s pieces are designed to do just that, and I love the focus on versatility. It was no easy task picking favorites, but here they are! (P.S. A preview of BHLDN‘s spring collection was released just yesterday, so of course, I included some of those as well!)

BHLDN Week: Something Pretty Picks

Isadora Gown: This gown from the spring collection is my absolute favorite! I would love to wear the sparkly layers of tulle as a bride, or even as a guest to a black-tie event.

Contessa Gown: How’s this for drama? Another stunner from the spring collection, this gown is chic and modern on top and statement-making on the bottom. And that detail on the fabric? Gorgeous.

Aiguille Gown: Anna Sui designed this glamorous, 20s-inspired gown exclusively for BHLDN. Between the exquisite sequin work and an unexpected trail of buttons down the front, it’ is the perfect fit for a modern Daisy Buchanan bride.

Dewed Vines Hairpin: This gold wire and Swarovski crystal hairpiece is dainty, but makes a statement. I love that a bride could wear this barefoot in the woods just as easily as in a chandelier-covered ballroom.

Nebulae D’Orsays: Thanks to my weakness for gold polka dots, I fell in love with these sweet pumps at the BHLDN store in Houston. The tulle poofs would be so charming peering out from underneath a bridal gown.

To-the-Heart Bridesmaid Cards: Sometimes, simple is the prettiest. One of my favorite paper companies, Sugar Paper LA, proves this with their gold letterpress and polka dot envelope liners for BHLDN.

Over-the-Moon Balloon: I’ve always loved Geronimo Balloons, and now they’ve teamed up with BHLDN to create the sweetest balloon I’ve ever seen. Their collaboration is a match made in heaven!

Blooming Shoppe Straws: I have a weakness for pretty straws, even in my daily water glass, and these floral print straws are unlike anything I’ve ever seen. I can’t wait to see how brides and hostesses use these!

Hollyhock Table Cards: The hollyhock border on these table number cards (by Austin Press for BHLDN) reminds me of the Laduree logo–always a classic, beautiful look.

Papered Pom Set: Pretty poms are one of the easiest and most fun ways to decorate for a party or wedding, and this pink and peach hued collection is effortlessly whimsical.

BHLDN Week: Something Pretty Picks

Tassel Earrings: These exquisite earrings are made of pearl, Swarovski crystals, pyrite quartz, and sterling silver, and would pair beautifully with an understated, strapless dress.

Burgundian Heels: I’m not sure if it’s the elegant brocade satin or the ankle strap fastened with a crystal buckle, but these heels epitomize modern Marie Antoinette style to me.

BHLDN Week: Something Pretty Picks

XO Studs: Is there anything cuter than these stud earrings? I picture them as a charming addition to a rehearsal dinner ensemble, or as a sweet gift any time of year.

Spiraled Shoppe Straws: Striped straws are such a party staple, and BHLDN offers them in pink, grey, turquoise, plum, powder blue, green, and yellow. They also offer a number of polka dot options, and of course, the new floral straws pictured above!

BHLDN Week: Something Pretty Picks

Frosted Dot Coupes: Once again catering to my love of polka dots, I can’t stop admiring these dainty, vintage-inspired coupes!

Dapper Bottle Stopper: I’ve always believed that the smallest details can make the biggest difference–just imagine the smiles on your guests’ faces when you cork your bottle with this bowtie stopper.

Which of these pretty products is your favorite?

Love, Lisa
