Well Wed in Pink and Peach

The photo of our cherry blossoms comb 
turned out so nice, by Beltrami Studios
from  Well Wed Hamptons and Well Wed New York magazines.

 And the Bonbon Oiseau Rose Blush head wrap too...from Vermont Vows.

Bon Science:
I am not a girly girl on the outside, although my top 3 favorite gut responses that make me go "oooo, I'm a girl" are in response to:
1. any of the colors pink
2. eyelet and lace
3. a good ruffle.

But pink tops my girly list. Is it its soft and feminine wiles, so fresh and sweet in it's primal specialness/girly allure? Or is it retinal instead, a color so moving and soothing that mostly sensitive and feeling eyes can see it best for what it is--tender innocence and belle époque sex.

Whatever it is, I am so happy to finally see the final results from our little contribution to a very pink editorial in the Spring/Summer 2012 of Well Wed New York and Well Wed Hamptons magazines. We're also in a very elegant peachy spread in Vermont Vows!

The rest of the pink spread is pretty sweet too...

 And more of the peach spread from Vermont Vows...

Wedding season is officially here...

I want to tell you more

A lot has been happening...and I haven't been around here much. We are busy with life things, trying to replace disappointments with hope of the most part and so that's a good thing. I want to tell you about the Moroccan desert and the Palmeraie, but we've been busy.

Bonbon's been filling Spring orders and just getting over Mother's Day, getting ready for Father's Day. We've been every Saturday at the Brooklyn Flea and are having our 4th(!) sale on Fab this Friday with many new things. Sign up if you haven't already so you can see...

In the meantime, here are a few from our new collection and a shoot we somehow talked Vanessa into modeling for, the Bonbon Girl for Summer...Jim took the model shots and I took the stills...It's from a collection called Omo, inspired by a book I have about the Surma and Mursi tribes in Southern Ethiopia, just on the border of kenya and Sudan, the colors of the Omo valley and the beads and elaborate natural decorations worn by the  men and women and children. This is a quieter interpretation and mixed with a visit to the Lakota reservation a few years ago...
