Happy Weekend.


Have you been having an amazing first week of fall? I have. Here in Oklahoma we’re experiencing a lot of below average temperatures and I’m soaking up every moment! Not only did I break out the Halloween decorations (fine, that was last week), but some long sleeves, too. Have a fantastic weekend and enjoy this week’s Mad Props!

8 ways to wear clip-on earrings that don’t involve your ears!


Wedding in Your Pocket.

I first came across Wedding in Your Pocket in an issue of Communication Arts a few years back and have had it bookmarked ever since. It’s basically pure, lovely genius in paper form. The kind of design that makes me envious and a little green with jealousy. In other words, the absolute best kind.

“What does it take to tell the story of a wedding? In our case, six books. Each book in the wedding series corresponds to a specific event in the process: invitation, welcome, ceremony, etc. A custom illustration by Adam McCauley opens each book, playing on cliche wedding terms (think getting hitched and dropping the anchor). The books combine honesty (ten things you may forget) with humor (how to find a hay barn in town), while maintaining a taste of elegance and tradition.”


Fingerprint Wedding Bands.

Andrew English is the contemporary British mind behind these hand-engraved fingerprint wedding bands. I’m absolutely in love with them, they’re so intimate and unique that I can’t help it. They are technically wedding bands, but I wouldn’t mind having something similar with my best friend or my mom. To me they just symbolize that everlasting bond so perfectly.


Unwedding Ring.

Not to rant or anything, but there’s so much peer pressure these days to tie the knot that I absolutely adore the idea of the Unwedding Ring. Wear it as a couple or as a singleton and make two different social statements.
