Anthropologie Does Weddings

blog_beauty21If only this was around two years ago when I got married. Ladies, it’s now official—Anthropologie, the beloved fashion store we all love to visit, is now offering a line of wedding gowns, bridesmaids dresses, shoes, hair accessories, coverings and more. And of course, every single thing is gorgeous. Sure, the prices are sky high for the gowns (which by the way are completely stunning), but if nothing else, they’re beautiful to look at. And hey, if you can swing $1,500 for your dress, then go for it. And if you can’t, you might at least be able to find shoes, hair pieces, and a wrap at their new site, bhldn.com. Instead of blathering on here about what you might find, we’ll offer up this series of images that are inspiring and beautiful.

For any bride-to-be who has a romantic, vintage approach to her wedding “look,” take your first peek at BHLDN.

Hmmm, it's tempting to renew one's vows as a reason, ahem, excuse to don one of these gorgeous gowns. Thanks for sharing, Obsessive Beauty!

Heart Me Up

In defense of Valentine’s Day

 

“be(ing) of love (a little) more careful”—e.e. cummings

Wednesday (Feb. 10) is Ash Wednesday, when Lent begins. Friday (Feb. 12) is Lincoln’s 207th birthday. Sunday is Valentine’s Day. On Ash Wednesday, with foreheads marked with a cross of ashes, we hear the words, “From dust thou art and unto dust thou shalt return.” Reminding us that our bodies, made of matter, will remain here on Earth when we are called back. It is our Soul that will take us home again. Lent offers us 40 days and nights of purification in preparation for the Resurrection (Easter) festival (an initiation) and for the Three Spring Festivals (at the time of the full moon)—Aries, Taurus, Gemini. The New Group of World Servers have been preparing since Winter Solstice. The number 40 is significant. The Christ (Pisces World Teacher) was in the desert for 40 days and 40 nights prior to His three-year ministry. The purpose of this desert exile was to prepare his Archangel (light) body to withstand the pressures of the Earth plane (form and matter). We, too, in our intentional purifications and prayers during the 40 days of Lent, prepare ourselves (physical body, emotions, lower mind) to receive and be able to withstand the irradiation of will, love/wisdom and light streaming into the Earth at spring equinox, Easter, and the Three Spiritual Festivals. What is Lent? The Anglo-Saxon word, lencten, comes from an ancient spring festival, agricultural rites marking the transition between winter and summer. The seasons reflect changes in nature (physical world) and humanity responds with social festivals of gratitude and of renewal. There is a purification process, prayerfulness in nature and in humanity in preparation for a great flow of spiritual energies during springtime. Valentine’s Day: Aquarius Sun, Taurus moon. Let us offer gifts of comfort, ease, harmony, beauty and satisfaction. Things chocolate and golden. Venus and Taurus things.
