I also paired the dress with my first Luxulite brooch! I have been dreaming of Luxulite ever since I first discovered their delicious wares a few years ago but never took the plunge and ordered anything. I finally got my hands on this black and yellow glittery cherries brooch, and another similar brooch in classic red glitter with red cherries. When they arrived in the mail it was truly like unwrapping candy the brooches and the packaging were so darn cute! I really didn't have any earrings to match either of the brooches so I messages Luxulite about setting up a custom order for earrings to match each brooch and they were a dream to work with! The earrings came out perfect and look great on their own too for work when I don't get to wear much jewelry normally (just earrings really as most everything else gets in the way while I'm sewing). I really cannot wait to add to my Luxulite collection, I have already been sorely tempted by more of their designs!
These photos were taken down on DU's campus, and wow isn't it lovely! Those students don't know how good they have it with a campus this beautiful! I hadn't really walked around the campus before, and I will definitely be back down there this year as they have great doors and areas for photos in general. I doubt they were designing the place with local bloggers in mind (back in the 1860's), but it will sure come in handy!
Oh, and happy Friday everybody :)
