black & white stripes.

Another trend I’m loving in New York Fashion Week world is thick black & white stripes.

How stunning is this outfit by kalmanovich & luxcartel that Dallas Shaw is wearing? Both photos from Dallas’ Instagram.

blush & bows.

I could hardly contain myself the past few days with all of the New York Fashion Week Instagram posts. The blush and bows on the runway were so feminine & classic.

My favorite looks from Marissa Webb. The dress on top… I adore.

My favorite look from Zimmerman via one of the best fashion bloggers {in my opinion} Blair Eadie. Follow her blog Atlantic-Pacific. Blush, bows AND leather.

I happen to think blush & bows are always in style but there’s something magical about seeing these looks on the runway.

I won’t be home this Fall but if I was I would die to have this parka, this jacket or this sweater.

Follow Sparkle Sense on Instagram, I’d love to follow you back!

time to bash: creative crush

hello friends!

happy friday my sparkle sensers! it’s blair from fashionista fairytales on this happy, happy friday! how excited are you that ash got her own sparkle sense instagram account? yeah, i am pretty pumped too. since we all know who my insta crush is obviously… i am going to introduce you to my artist and creative crush. meet evelyn henson. the most adorable, southern thang who really has a way with her brush…

i found her etsy site during one of my usual pinterest binges and i knew it was love at first sight. like how CUTE are these prints?


from her golden words, to her perfume sketches, to the fantasy flowerscapes, i am just in awe of them all. i wake up every morning to “start each day with a grateful heart” and go to sleep each night starring at the beautiful chanel print. i cook while staring at the lemon print, and celebrate the weekends with my favorite bar cart sketches.

don’t get me wrong, i would fill my entire apartment with this chick’s prints but i don’t know how happy my roommate would be about my taste taking over!

make sure to check out evelyn’s bomb blog too! can ya tell i just love her!?

have a wonderful weekend y’all!

Wedding Wednesday

Happy Wedding Wednesday!

Some of you may be wondering how long I’m going to do Wedding Wednesday because {surprise!} I’m already married! And the answer is, I don’t know. What I do know is that I still have a whole lotta fun wedding things to share so I’m going to share until I can share no more.

I’m also dying that we are about a week away {give or take a few days} from getting our wedding photos back from Kortnee Kate! We have a video coming as well BUT that takes a few months. I’d say it’s worth the wait after seeing the amazing videos that Kortnee Kate’s team does.

I’ll be sure to post when ours is live:) I can’t wait to relive that magical day.

What I want to share today is a very unique and thoughtful wedding gift that we received from one of Richard’s close family friends.

Wait for it… wait for it… a picnic basket!

The note they included was so adorable. Cliffs notes: they received a picnic basket as one of their wedding gifts, it was their favorite & it reminded them to always find time to enjoy each others company in this crazy, busy, hectic, & wonderful life.

The Veuve polo was a gift from one of my parents best friends who picked it up when they were in Europe. I mean… how ridiculously awesome is it?

They got this picnic basket from Picnic Plus. Click here! Here are a few others that are super cute.

1. a sunny afternoon picnic basket


2. anthropologie hillside picnic basket {this one screams Blair — my Time to Bash lovely lady}

3. If you really have no limits & want to buy a DIVINE picnic basket check out Fortnum & Mason – I DIE.

One thing is for sure, if you give a picnic basket as a gift to some newlyweds they will be sure to love it as much as we do.

I came across this app called trendabl by reading the lovely miss Laura’s blog, House of Charms. It’s similar to Instagram but it’s all fashion based: a community to share & discover fashion.

You can collect items that you like & shop as well.

trendablsplashI’ve already found some inspiration in the short time I’ve signed up {literally like 3 hours ago} — check it out & follow me if you wish, my username is sparklesense.

I love the review I found on trendabl from Refinery 29 — “Additionally, the community is just as fashion-obsessed as you. No more weird aunts asking you why you’re taking a picture of your feet — at Trendabl, everyone here just gets it. Need someone to follow? Check us out first at @refinery29!”

Have a lovely start to your week {no Labor day here in Grenada!}

french fancy.

Check out my post on fashionista fairytales today on Some Statement Stuff. It’s inspiration is from this French chair that I very much fancy. It was in the lobby of our hotel in Aix en Provence, Le Pigonnet.
