Here at VOF we love a little bling (if you’ve followed our posts at all, you already know this). Needless to say, typical bridal shoes leave us feeling a little underwhelmed. While Kate Spade and BHLDN have some bridal shoe options that make our hearts beat a little faster, we totally encourage you to break out of the mold and look for your wedding shoes in unexpected places. If you’ve got a long time to plan, sales can be your best friend. Below you’ll find a few of our current favorites. Please share yours in the comments!

Hey darling VoF readers, Highs down south have been in the 70s this week, which means I’ve been hitting my sweater collection probably a little too hard (because I don’t actually need a bulky knit scarf when it’s 75 degrees out). But I’m not apologizing so without further ado, we present to you some seriously awesome links this week.
Bridal fashion week has left us starry eyed.

Starting out a career often feels like a bit of a roller-coaster full of excitement, disappointment, mistakes, learning, and so much more. It is sometimes tough to know exactly where to go next and how to get what you want in the end. As two girls working our way up in the world, the VOF team can attest to this great advice from Forbes.
As for what to wear, VOF loves the looks featured above. Make sure to dress for your specific career and put a bit of personal flair into anything you wear.
1. The Designer and Architect. Try out color and Prints. Don’t be afraid to stand out and show your personality. After all, your overall style is why your clients will inevitably hire you.
2. The Marketer and PR Expert. Marketing and PR fall somewhere in the middle. They are creative fields, but are still set in a business environment. Try out more subtle colors with a hint of texture and bling.
3. The Lawyer and High Powered Business Woman. These fields require keeping it tasteful. Try stepping away from the suit and adding a textured jacket with a fun watch to add some personality to your look.
