Something Old, Something New, Something Borrowed, Something Miriam Haskell for J.Crew-------
As a recent bride, I was obsessed with finding dresses, shoes, and jewelry I could wear not only on the big day, but then again after it. Cases in point: the flat satin rhinestone-embellished Vera Wang sandals I slipped into at the end of the night came with me on my Positano honeymoon, and I plan to cut and dye my 3.1 Phillip Lim party dress into a new design. I’m equally enamored with Miriam Haskell’s new collection of bridal bijoux for J.Crew. The costume jeweler’s pieces would add a unique touch to any wedding ensemble, sure, but they’ll look just as special later on, paired with a white tee or cashmere cardigan. An added bonus: It’s easier to get away with purchases when you can explain the bang-for-your-buck to your spouse. Trust me on this one.
Available May at J.Crew locations—including the retailer’s first bridal boutique, opening in June on Madison Avenue—and www.jcrew.com.
