by Azure

Happy Monday Savvy Scoopers! Last week we saw some fabulous shoes from Mary Norton, but I also really loved the purses in her bridal collection. I know we’ve seen some other posts on purses, but personally, I don’t see the need for the bride to carry a purse.

I love the vintage look of these elegant hair pieces. They're perfect whether you go for a swirly updo or something more sleek.

The flowers are made of gorgeous silks and leathers, and often have individual wiring in the petals so you can arrange the piece just right once it's on. These are pieces you'll want to keep wearing long after you walk down the aisle.
