Friday Finds: Sole Goddess

As many brides know, fabulous shoes don't always feel as great as they look...which can be a problem when you're standing and dancing in them for hours on end. And who wants to cover their feet in band-aids on their wedding day? That's why we were so excited to introduce Sole Goddess, created by professional stylist, Danielle Lutz to solve this age-old problem. Inspired by sport sticks used by marathoners (so you know it's good), Sole Goddess is a foot balm that creates a shield between your foot and the shoe, preventing blisters and calluses. Just apply it like a lipbalm to the problem areas or your whole foot, and you're good to go! It's not sticky or smelly, so no need to worry about ruining your shoes. And it even comes in a cute "something blue" case - perfect for brides!  Priced at $18.95 it's a small investment to save your feet from pain!  Available at The Left Bank Jewelry & Bridal Finery and online at in the Wedding Shoe Accessory category.

Haute Bride Trunk Show

Haute Bride creates glamorous wedding accessories.  As one of our favorite designers that we have been showcasing for many years, we welcome you to try on their dazzling collection of earrings, bracelets, cuffs, necklaces, veils bridal belts and sashes starting this Thursday, June 7th through Sunday, June 10th for our Summer 2012 Haute Bride Trunk Show.
We often get asked the question, "what exactly is a trunk show".  Typically it's when a designer brings their full and/or limited edition pieces of their collection for bride's to see and try on.  It's a great way to see the scope of a designers line and the opportunity to customize pieces.  Often boutiques offer an incentive or discount for ordering during trunk shows.
Another tip is when shopping for wedding accessories, we recommend wearing a white or ivory tank or t-shirt to help you visualize your entire look and have a photo of your dress handy too.
We welcome you to visit our boutique, The Left Bank Jewelry & Bridal Finery to see this amazing collection of wedding accessories.
