GJU Featured in the WSJ

Remember my blog post about bold and beautiful brows? (Here's a reminder: The Bold and The Beautiful: Brows) 

Well, on Halloween, my thoughts were included in a broader piece about the bold brow trend. Elizabeth Holmes, style reporter for the WSJ, found my blog while doing her research for the piece. I was so excited to share my opinions with her, and flattered to see that some of my comments made it into the article!

Here's the link to the article:

Bits and pieces of the article

Read up! This is some good stuff! And that includes you, man friends. "Guy-brows" are in. 

I'll leave you with this thought:

Decision made!

To those who voted on the two dresses, thanks for your input! 

If you saw any of the photos posted last night to my Facebook, you would have noticed that I went with Dress B! Ultimately, I fell in love the lace-covered bodice on the front, the deep V in the back, and sweet bow around the waist. 

Thanks again for weighing in!

The wedding I attended was beautiful! I was honored to be part of Dani and Amanda's special day. Here are some more photos from the ceremony and reception:

Every wedding should start with a selfie. Here's one of me and my mom!

Which LBD for the Wedding?

Hey guys.

I'm going to a wedding this Saturday, and I'm torn between two little black dresses! I posted the pics to my Instagram for some feedback, but figured I'd share the two options on GJU and get your thoughts.

Dress A:

Black Lace Back Dress, Cache $188

Dress B:

Black Lace Bow-Tied Dress, Cache $198

Which do you prefer? I love the cut out on the first dress, but I equally love the lace-covered sweetheart bodice on the second dress. Let me know what you think!
