I Do...want to wear every one of these.

I'm not really a wedding girl. I mean, someday sure, I'll get married and have a wedding but whenever I picture it it's more like a dinner party with a super quick ceremony thrown in. I don't dream of churches and flowers and cake and wearing white. I do dream of a fantastic menu and a party dress though.

Enter BHLDN (pronounced Beholden).

Now don't let the fact that for some reason someone decided it would be cool and not at all confusing to take all the vowels out of the name of this line or the fact that beholden means "owing thanks or having a duty to someone in return for help or a service" (which is not at all romantic) fool you. This is actually a pretty amazing new line of wedding apparel by the people behind Urban Outfitters, Anthropologie, and Free People.

There are things like lingerie and jewelry and weird things for your hair and probably something blue and definitely something new but the most fantastic part is the dresses. I would wear these every day if I could.


  1. I think we should have a once per month dress up/ supper club where we all wear cute outfits and dress in cocktail dresses.

  2. @Tova - Best idea EVAH!

    Can I come too?!

  3. Yes! I have these little white gloves I bought at a vintage store years ago and have never worn. I think they have just found their purpose.

    I also have too many dresses that don't get enough wear because I don't get to be fancy.

  4. I have white vintage gloves too! and a tea party/ Kentucky derby style hat that does not get out enough.

    @Theurbancowgirl, just tell us when you will be in Portland :)
