Princess Bride

Note to the Bride:
You look beautiful. The wait is over, now we all know you wore an Alexander McQueen dress designed by the house's creative director Sarah Burton. You also wore a Cartier tiara lent to you from the Queen herself, and diamond earrings that your parents gave you. I like that your accessories had significant sentimental value. You definitely look like the princess you now are.

There have been some complaints that your dress was too safe, and that it was too much like Grace Kelly's when she married the Prince of Monaco. Don't let the critics phase you. Your wedding photos will be referenced for decades, not to mention all of the people watching today. This was not the time to debut an avant garde, cutting-edge style, that will look dated in two hours. (I doubt Princess Diana thought her puffy sleeves were of-the-moment, but they definitely look eighties now)

Your dress compliments your slim figure, your makeup is simple and pretty, and your smile is a perfect accessory. This style will remain classic. If you are going to pay homage to a wedding dress, Grace Kelly's is the one to do it to.

Note to Readers:
What did you think of Kate's wedding day look? Keep in mind there are still luncheons, dinners, and parties tonight, where she will have a chance to change into something that is more current. (if she chooses to, of course) I originally thought the look was a little boring, but when I remembered the pressure on her, I think she was smart to wear something timeless to the actual wedding. I think this new Princess is a smart cookie.

Also, did you wake up to watch the wedding live? As much as I love a wedding (and I LOVE weddings), I waited until my normal wake up time to watch it. That's what DVR's are for, right?

Get Ready!

Note to Readers:
Ben and I just found out we are having a baby GIRL!!! It has been a serious exercise in self-restraint to wait 16 weeks to find out what we were having, until I started buying baby clothes!! Maybe I bought a couple of baby girl items, just in case. (They were too cute to pass up, and what if they weren't there when I went back?)

I have been really sick the past few months, hence the lack of blogging. (I could kill the person who named it "morning" sickness. If only it were just in the morning!!!)

Anyway, this mama-to-be is a TOTAL newcomer into the world of kids clothes, and I need help! What stores, sites, etsy shops, etc. do I NEED to know about? Please keep in mind, I am on a budget. Although if something is to die for, and a little pricey, please do share. That's what Grandma's are for right?!

Let me know! Love you all. (She is due in late Sept, in case you were wondering)

PS. I arranged for an AWESOME giveaway, as soon as we hit 150 followers.

I'm Confused

Note to Anne Hathaway:
I'm confused. I don't understand what's happening here. What part of fringed Gucci mini-dress means accessorize with gym hair and nerdy/hipster glasses. I can see the hair and glasses with a pair of skinny jeans a cool silk blouse or sweater, and some ankle boots or ballet flats. I can see the dress and shoes with a messy-updo or ponytail without the glasses. I just don't understand them together. I bet this look is making Rachel Zoe want to end her maternity leave.

Note to Readers:
I know this look was for a premiere of a children's movie, so the rules of fashion don't always apply. However, even if you are going to the grocery store, you want to make sure you are dressed appropriately. I wouldn't wear a floor length gown with a pair of Sketchers Shape ups, and I wouldn't wear a swimsuit and accessorize with ski goggles. What ever you decide to accessorize with, make sure it complements what you already have going on.

Happy Monday everyone!
