It all started with this blue dress at Lili Salon and it's charming embellishments...

I could not believe that (a) these embellishments were actually hair accessories and (b) that they were made out of paper?!?

I instantly pictured a bride and her bridal party wearing these pieces - and I had to learn more!

So lucky...I had the pleasure of meeting the artist behind this wearable art. Sally Suby of Suby Paper Company was initially inspired by a trip to India and the exotic handmade papers she found there. Silk. Metallic. Floral.

Adding handmade cotton papers from Barcelona Spain, Sally created a line of wedding jewelry keeping the design modern and fresh yet deeply rooted in tradition.

Each piece is truly a labor of love as the handmade paper is painted, hand imprinted and then cut into circles or squares. Each circle or square is then hand painted to create individually frames petite mosaics.

The mosiacs are then threaded - often incorporating vintage beads (even heirloom wedding pearls!) to create this one-of-kind wearble art. Beautiful.

The hair acessories feature the handmade paper technique coupled with the most amazing combs and pins found in Paris. I absolutely adore these.

A fabulous gift...a unique bridal accent...and the most stunning everyday accessory. So happy to have found them!

Statement necklaces are continuing to make a statement.

And this bold vintage bridal bib necklace from All Things Tinsel in all white is no exception. In my mind, you can never go wrong with big enamel flowers brooches - especially when they are coupled with an eclectic group of pearls and rhinestones to create one-of-a-kind statement pieces.

Vintage beauty.

This is truly what I said out loud when I saw this stunning knitted creation. And then, where do I get it?!?

Amy Lawrence Knitted Designs on Etsy may be some of the coolest accessories this fall.

The color palette. The detail. Brilliant.

Hey Foxy! Move over hedgehogs, could foxes be the new owls?!?!

Woodland creatures are definitely showing up everywhere this fall but it seems the fox may be the IT critter of furry friends this season.

American designer Tory Burch has fully embraced Mr. Fox as the sly little trickster dots everything from shoes to accessories to sweaters. Her velvet fox slippers had me at the grosgrain ribbon on the fox's ear heartPink...I couldn't wait to get my hands on these!

 Nothing sums up this trending little critter better than this line from the film, The Fantastic Mr. Fox:

Mrs. Fox: You know, you really are...fantastic.

Mr. Fox: I try.

Yes, Mr. Fox, I feel you are quite fantastic too!
