Happy Friday NewlyWishers!
We’re so excited to introduce to you our new Cali-based Style Editor, Kate Imbach. Not only is Kate a pretty cool-cat, she’s got a meticulous eye for style, and has some really nifty ideas for helping you create a registry that’s all about your personal style. We’ll be rolling out more details on this in the coming weeks, following up with a full profile interview with Kate so you can get to know the secrets behind her style and design eye, but in the meantime, Kate wanted to share a little Olympic Wedding Inspiration while she’s all jazzed up about it… take it away, my friend!
Hello all! We’re so excited that the Olympics start today, and our Summer Games fever has inspired us to create a collection of NewlyWish favorites in gold, silver and bronze.
As you think about life as a married couple, let the Olympics serve as reminder that anyone with determination, perseverance, and confidence can achieve their goals. And of course, that thoughtfully selected metallics can add a touch of polish and glamour to any home! So check out our podium-worthy pics for your home and wedding day.
Why Merci Loves This Piece: These vintage-inspired earrings were actually designed from flapper-era dress clips! We suggest them to a variety of styling clients, because they can be worn for numerous ocassions. They deliver that certain "je ne sais quoi" that finishes a look to perfection!
Why Merci Loves This Piece: Worn alone or in stacked groups of silver and gold (we prefer the latter!) the Emma bangle is a jewelry box staple. We love the organic texture of the metal bangle, paired against the sparkly crystals! It's a perfect juxtaposition!
Why Merci New York Loves It: We love how bib necklaces have surpassed the "trend" stage and become a wedding day staple. The Vivianna bib necklace is a statement making necklace that pairs perfectly with an understated gown.
Why Merci Loves This Piece: We can't help but imagine that the Georgina earrings would look just as fabulous with a t-shirt and jeans as they would with a wedding or bridesmaid dress. Added bonus: They are under $100 (we just love it when beautiful design doesn't break the bank)!
Why We Love It at Merci New York: We adore this bracelet. Simply spectacular from afar, amazingly intricate when given a lingering look.
In this piece, Bridget Bardot Go Go Cowgirl, Gregory uses iron, bronze, dye, and a portrayal of the great Bridget Bardot.

Why Merci Loves This Piece: The Astor earrings just ooze vintage inspired glamour. The super-chic design and amazing pricepoint make them a perfect bridesmaids gift! The drops have been affixed to a sterling silver ear wire, moderizing an already gorgeous look.
Have a great weekend and be sure to drop us a line and let us know what your Olympic watching plans are!
