In many cultures, dragonflies are considered a symbol of good luck. I love knowing this as I have always loved them and my daughter had gifted me with a dragonfly necklace that I would wear everyday. One day the chain broke from my dragonfly charm and I honestly felt lost without it. That was until I was able to find the perfect replacement - this gorgeous Natural Beauties Dragonfly Necklace from Waxing Poetic. I now have a very special dragonfly necklace that I can wear daily again.

BaubleBar & Paper Fashion join together for an Art & Fashion Collaboration

Looks like this week is turning into an art one. Yesterday I shared two gown sketches from the upcoming Anne Barge Collection and today it's all about watercolors. Katie Rodgers is known for her whimsical watercolors of elegant fashion that can be seen on her site, Paper Fashion. She has now teamed up with BaubleBar to curate a new collection that is the "epitome of classic glamour with a twist".  In this new collection, you will find sparkling rhinestones and timeless pearls along with pops of color. You will find necklaces, bracelets and earrings that retail from $28-$42 - making this gorgeous collection super affordable. These jewelry designs are perfect gifts for bridesmaids, mothers of the bride and/or mothers of the groom, as well as the bride herself.

And, I had to finish off this post with the latest watercolor sketch from Katie that she posted yesterday. I'm in love with the black and pink dresses. Plus, it even features touches of glitter. How can you not love that?
