better late than never

i realize i'm late to boat on this one- but how great is lululemon? after hearing nothing but positive things about the yoga-inspired athletic apparel, i bought this tank:

from an aesthetic and functional perspective- i love this tank! it's the perfect length and it's just loose enough in the tummy area. i wore it for a yoga class and it stayed in place- but i think it will make a great running-tank too. loves.

My attention has turned to my save the date cards- I'm feeling vintage stamps and calligraphy. I think vintage stamps add a little something extra, and I'm all about something extra. I love the idea of picking stamps that have symbolism beyond the minimum postage rate.

Miss Lillian and Betty inspired me to think outside the box in terms of an alternative guest book... She is using a darling vintage globe for her "guest book".

Since our wedding will take place in California, I think it would be nice to commemorate the destination. In lieu of a book, I'll use a vintage map... Post-wedding, I will have it matted, framed, and admire it daily (rather than having a guest book collect dust in a drawer). There are numerous options available on eBay; here are a couple contenders:

(available here)
I also like the colors on this one.

yes, please.

Since I'll have a new monogram in a year, I'll need a new monogrammed tote bag... There's the standard-issue L. L. Bean tote:
Or, the fancy-pants iomoi tote... Which I absolutely LOVE:

The only difficult part is picking a pattern:

How cute are these Lanvin flats?
I think these Valentinos would make perfect wedding-shoes:

All available at Net-a-Porter AND they're on sale (but still rather expensive).
