Style mavens, fireworks displays, and a bitchin' '80s cake

By on Jul. 4th

The Offbeat Flickr Pool kept hitting me with serious bits of killer style. This week's Montage is a style-fest with some Fourth of July love.


I'm crushing on this high flying couple with her fantastic yellow polish and his smart vest and tie combo.


Just one more of them with the balloon, then I'm moving on, I swear. His shoes are fantastic and she looks ultra happy.

Jess and Randy took their living room elopement to the streets to pop some champagne. And what's better to wear to an impromptu toast than a rad-as-hell vintage print dress and a bow tie? Nuthin'.

The dress… I die. Over and over again. I am such a fan of print wedding dresses and this one is off the hook.

Jane & Jason's wedding had some neat retro elements. Jane matches her birdcage and pearls perfectly with the retro room.

Those shiny, red half gloves on Jessica's ladies would make any rock 'n' roll pose look amazing. This wedding party is a fashion dream.

And now a dose of cake style! Alexandra's '80s-themed wedding cake has a total of 22(!) references. It's time to play… name that reference! Click the photo to see all of the references listed. Here's a gimme: Sloth from The Goonies is officiating the cake topper couple!


Let's not forget that we're celebrating Independence Day and pull out some cool fireworks shots. Cass says of this shot: "I always thought that there were fireworks when we kiss."

Jessica and Dennis entitled this shot "Ghost in the Machine" due to the long exposure. Pyrotechnics FTW!
