Marvelous Girl Has Moved!

Posts Tagged ‘chic

I don’t know about you, but I’m picky when it comes to wedding invitations.  As a bride, you want something that represents YOU and your personal style.   But sometimes it’s difficult to find a quality invitation at a reasonable price.

Luckily recently launched its wedding collection, inspired by actual brides from Los Angeles to New York, searching for the latest in modern, custom invitations at an affordable price point.

“You don’t have to spend a thousand dollars on quality wedding invitations,” says Roxy Diba, marketing director for All My Invites.  “We understand that planning a wedding can be taxing both emotionally and financially, which is why our website is designed to help you create wedding invites that express your style without sacrificing quality.”

Invitations are priced from $1.24 to $1.99, depending upon the size of the order, and discounts are available for larger quantities.   Once an order is placed, a designer personally sets each custom design to be printed and sends the client a proof for final review. Shipments are generally made within 48 hours of client approval providing a superlative turnaround. 

One of my favorite invites offered by is the Peacock Paisley (shown above) because you can purchase matching bridal shower, save-the-date, direction, reception and even table place cards!  See for yourself at  I know you’ll love them!

fall jewelry trendThis fall nothing will make you feel more glamorous than jewelry with deep, rich, autumn colors.  Combined with the ever-so sleek and chic emerald-cut stones, this trend is being called Russian Folkloric because it bridges the boho mix of casual color with the over-the-top sparkling luxury that will be the major look for holiday jewels.   Here are some of Marvelous Girl’s picks under $25.

1)  Smoky Quartz Ring from Chadwicks ($23.99)

2)  Sterling Silver Garnet Stud Earnings from Overstock ($24.99)

3)  Deco Style Black Stone Brooch at Bonanzle ($14.99)

Go Bold:  Deep cool colors (like amethyst, sapphire and emerald) and warm, burnt colors (such as amber and citrine) will really pop against your fall apparel.  But the trick is to make sure the stones are large and eye-catching.

Nadia Nour eco-friendly clothingI love eco-friendly clothing, but it’s so difficult to find stylish pieces that don’t leave you looking like a unkempt hippie.  That’s why I love the 100 percent organic clothing line by Nadia Nour, which combines style, sophistication and comfort, all while being earth-friendly.

Online dress retailer,, is now exclusively carrying Nadia Nour.   To celebrate the launch of the collection, will be offering 50 percent off NEW styles from Friday, July 10th – July 31.   So now you can get a fabulous cocktail dress and save the environment at the same time…proving you really are supergirl!

Each piece is made with organic and vintage materials, produced locally in New York’s garment district. Nadia’s love of dresses and skirts is apparent in her collection. Each piece is highly stylized, structured, soft, feminine and flirty.

new square cupcaketreeIt’s no surprise more and more people are opting for cupcakes at their weddings rather than a traditional cake – I mean they’re so cute! 

So companies like Cupcaketree are coming up with new shapes, opposed to the traditional circle,  to meet growing demand.

“Our brides are always looking for something different and the new square cupcake tree offers a degree of sophistication and simplicity we know will be appealing,” said Judy Truesdell, co-owner of Cupcaketree.

During these challenging economic times, the cupcake tree is an affordable alternative to wedding cakes. Many brides make an event out of baking and decorating their own cupcakes, inviting family members and friends to join in.  Others search out bakeries that specialize in cupcakes, choosing from a wide assortment of flavors and decorating options.

The trees are also popular because they’re disposable and recyclable, which appeals to the food industry’s interest in eco-friendly products.

National Cleaning Week is right around the corner (March 23-29).  Are you ready?  Instead of breaking out the broom and mop, DreamMaker Bath & Kitchen suggests that people consider the following remodeling alternatives when contemplating ways to clean up their home’s appearance:

  • Refacing – Outdated kitchens and baths can get a quick upgrade by simply refacing cabinet frames and adding new door fronts and drawers. As long as the existing framework is in working order, wood veneers or laminates can be added for enhanced functionality and style.
  • Lighting upgrades – Well-placed, quality lighting can improve the overall beauty of a home while it can also help hide flaws. Install multi-functional fixtures and dimmers to assist in accenting specific items and brightening dark corners.
  • Bathtub liners – Say goodbye to hard-to-clean grout lines with the installation of an acrylic tub liner. Typically done in one day, this upgrade instantly brightens the room and is easier to clean and maintain.
  • Hardware – Replacing hardware, including items such as cabinet and drawer pulls or towel bars, can provide a simple, immediate update to any kitchen or bath.

“National Cleaning Week is an ideal time for people to restore their homes with a few simple tasks. Doing so can provide a breath of fresh air while simultaneously increasing the value of any home,” said Doug Dwyer, president and CSO of DreamMaker Bath & Kitchen.
