Posted on June 15, 2011 by mckay | 0 Comments

I love giving things away - it is so fun! so, this week we've teamed up with Collared Greens to give one lucky Southern Weddings reader a fun little prize: a matching clutch and bow tie. c'mon, admit it- you like matching with your beau. i'm not talking brazenly matched air brushed t-shirts that you bought on your last trip to Panama City, but something simple and classy that accessorizes the already fabulous dress/suit that you're sporting to a friend's wedding.

head on over to Southern Weddings website and get the gist on how to enter.  good luck and can't wait to find out who the winner will be! :)

I love the holiday season. Exciting stuff is going on the studio right now! I'm overloaded a tad on caffeine and sugar (thanks for the peppermint patties, Mom) and the fabric is flying. Just for giggles, we teamed up with Collared Greens for a little holiday accessorizing, and debuted a limited edition of the CG/OLADE Clutch online this weekend. Collared Greens was founded in Sun Valley, Idaho and is geared towards american made, eco-friendly clothing. They make the most beautiful silk ties that would certainly please any bride/groom looking to top off a wedding day ensemble. Here are a couple in action. Modeled by the men in my family. Handsome, right?? So here's our thought. Coordinating clutches for the bridesmaids and ties for the groomsmen. I think it is the perfect combo- not too matchy matchy, but ties (ha.ha.) it all together. Simple, preppy, classic. What do you think??

Check out their site and let us know what patterns you would like to see in upcoming collaborations. They've got some great patterns to choose from (stripes, plaids and penguins, just to name a few!)

I'll leave you with these super sweet bowties. I die! {photo courtesy of collaredgreens}
