Top 10 // Leather Details

In addition to planning and styling kick ass events and photo shoots, I am also a handbag designer.  Handbag designer + crafter = hoarder of leather.  Lots and lots of leather.  I absolutely love using the natural hides as details in my designs.  From layered and draped on the tables to tiny details, this is such a great material to add an element of masculinity and cool factor in an understandable way.

This one is for all the women out there about to become basketball widows for the next several weekends due to March Madness.  Your fiance pictures a sports-themed wedding, but you definitely have other ideas.  Here are 10 ways to include yours and your husband's love of your team without making it a sports-themed event.  Warning, I advise to just incorporate one detail to avoid going overboard.
