Summery Indeed

Note to Summer Glau:
Admittedly, I am on quite a stripes kick, but I have to say I adore your dress! I am not familiar with the brand, Corey Lynn Calter, but apparently I need to be. I like that you belted it, and paired it with nude heels, fun earrings, and beachy waved hair. Too many accessories can really weigh down a summer ensemble, so I think you are styled wisely. You wore this look to Comi-Con in San Diego, and you definitely dressed appropriately for the occasion and season (are you taking notes Angelina?) Anyway, well done, you are definitely making your name proud.

It's kind of funny, but I feel like you have to be pretty with the name Summer. Seriously, all of the Summers I know are gorgeous. Maybe if I have a girl someday, I will name her Summer, so the odds are in her favor. Now that I have typed out Summer so much, it doesn't seem like a real word, does that ever happen to you?

Note to Readers:
Am I the only one totally feeling stripes these days? I have had to consciously stop trying on striped dresses/skirts/tops, because I am becoming (gasp) one-noted in my sartorial choices. Stripes are just so fun to wear in the summer though... I just need to wear them in moderation. If you see me around, and I am in stripes, don't be surprised but know I am trying to change it up.

Note to Angelina Jolie:
We get it. You are so pretty you don't need to worry about wearing color or anything, and you will still look smashing. Are you getting a little bit bored of wearing black? We all know it is a great universal color, but enough is enough. This photo was taken at Comicon in San Diego, we are in the middle of summer and you are in black leather? Let's lighten things up a bit, ok?

Note to Readers:
Black is one of my go-to colors when I feel like I need to look good, and I don't have time to throw together something new. So I am not knocking wearing black, by any means. I am just saying, if you are Angelina Jolie, and you have designers and stylists at your beck and call don't you think you would be able to incorporate a little bit of variety into your wardrobe?

Something Borrowed

Note to Readers:

Have you read Something Borrowed? I read it a few years ago and loved it, and I am beyond excited for the movie to come out. It has already wrapped filming, and has Kate Hudson, Ginnifer Goodwin, and newlywed John Krasinski in starring roles. I will be the first to admit that it is not thought-provoking, change the way you think, type of fiction. It is a perfect breezy summer read, and I hope the movie will due the book justice. Photos from filming kept popping up on people.com, and I am counting down to see the movie. Hudson's glamorous Darcy is well balanced by natural beauty Goodwin's Rachel. According to IMDB it doesn't come out until 2011... le sigh.

Additional Note to Readers:

I am in a wee bit of a book rut. Any suggestions? I just finished The Help (loved it), The Heart of the Matter (hated it), and am thinking about reading The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Society next.

Weekend of Weddings

Note to Readers:
It was a big weekend for beautiful brides. Both Carrie Underwood and Emily Blunt tied the knot this weekend to their respective grooms Mike Fisher and John Krasinski. It has been reported that Carrie wore a gown by Monique Lhuillier made of Chantilly Lace. Emily wore a dress by Marchesa created out of embroidered cream chiffon. Le Sigh, now if they would only release the pictures so we could see these creations!

Note to Carrie Underwood and Emily Blunt:
Congratulations on your weddings! You are probably busy with your honeymoons and such, but if you get a chance, do you mind releasing at least one photo of you in your wedding dresses? I know weddings are private, and it is really none of my business to see them, but I love wedding dresses.

I have an idea, I'll show you mine if you show me yours? (I bet that is hard to turn down because you two have probably been dying to see my wedding dress...)

Baby Love

Note to Becky Newton:
You are one of my favorites. You (and your outfits) might be what I miss most about Ugly Betty. I don't know what you are like in real life, but I do know that your real life style is killer as well. This leads me to believe I would love real life Becky as much as I love Ugly Betty's Amanda. Anyway, enough gushing, it was just confirmed that you and your husband are expecting a baby. CONGRATS! I hope you are still a red-carpet regular so we can see how your style evolves throughout your pregnancy.

Note to Readers:

I love to see how people's style evolves as their lives do. Whether it is for expecting a baby, fluctuations in weight, lifestyle changes, or just style changes, I like to see the different clothing choices people make. When I graduated college I took a job at an office where I had to dress more professionally than my college uniform of jeans and sweatshirts. It was fun picking out different button up shirts, skirts and dress pants. I definitely felt more grown up. I noticed when I started styling and working with models frequently, I often wore heels or wedges so I didn't feel like a midget around them. A lot of my friends have had or are having babies, and it is fun to see how they still keep aspects of their original style and modify it to accomodate their changing bodies.

Maybe I just love clothes, and how people choose to represent themselves with what they wear. I'm not the only one right?
