Best Dressed at the Royal Wedding

30 Apr

 

I think we can all agree that the Duchess of Cambridge was the most stunning woman yesterday and by right she should be since it was her wedding day. However, I feel there are a few women who deserve an honorable mention for looking completely smashing! I loved seeing all the different people spiffed up but, the few below were expectational when it came to Royal Wedding Style!

Kate Middleton’s Wedding Dress Revealed

29 Apr

 

So I caved. I promised myself I wouldn't partake in all this Royal Wedding hoopla but I'm a sucker for a beautifully designed dress. Especially when that dress was designed by the late Alexander McQueen's successor Sara Burton! I stayed up all night to be one of the first Fashion Bloggers to post pictures of the highly guarded secret wedding dress. Ok, so maybe I didn't stay up ALL night.  Maybe I dosed off a bit and set my alarm to wake up at the most importune hour…. but it sounds much better if I say I stayed up to post these pictures because I am so committed to "YOU" my lovely Readers!   I am now off to bed as I feel my commitment has been fulfilled for the day.  Kate is a very stunning bride! Cherrio!

“Alexander The Great” by Steven Meisel for Vogue US May 2011

28 Apr

 

The great Alexander McQueen is still very much missed in the fashion world! His sense of creativity was insane and there will NEVER be another like him. I will forever treasure his talent! I am in awe of these amazing photos taken by the brilliant Steven Meisel for Vogue US. I can't wait to pick up this magazine tomorrow, cut the pages out, and have them framed! There's a happy rumor going around that the De Young in San Francisco will be curating an Alexander McQueen exhibit next Fall! Long live McQueen!

“Just Do It” Nike Free Run 3.0 Sneakers

27 Apr

 

Ok, so I recently was bitten by the "I need to lose weight bug"! I've been on the look out for some amazing running shoes (as running seems to be my choice of exercise)….I discovered a little piece of foot heaven at Nike Town. When I first tired on the Nike Free Run 3.0 Sneakers, I almost passed out from the feeling of  little angels cradling my feet! These sneakers are extremely light, flexible, and provide stellar support. I ran 2.5 miles in these shoes today….I know some of you are thinking "2.5 miles isn't a lot" but for me it's a HUGE step towards getting my sexy back before Summer. Check out all the fantastic colors these kicks come in at Nike.com. They're available in Women and Men styles. Oh here's another reason to invest in a pair of Nike running shoes, you can run in them, jump in them, do whatever you want in them and if you're not fully satisfied…return them within 30 days for a full refund! Now that's a company that stands behind their product!

Old Navy 30% off Clearance Sale

26 Apr

 

It's been a VERY long day! I need an iPad, a Car, and a Husband….preferably in that order! My priorities are as such that I'm purchasing a car before I get my ipad, then I can surf the singles websites on my iPad to find my future hubby. Well, since I have a few months to go before I purchase my vehicle ….I thought I should pass the time away and pop into Old Navy for their Extra 30% off Spring clearance sale. I'm sure glad I did, I scored some pretty cute tops for Summer. After leaving Old Navy with my loot in hand I thought to myself, "at least I will be lookin' HOT when I drive to the Apple Store in my new car, to purchase my iPad, only to turn around and meet the man of my dreams standing in line". Oh if life were only that simple!

 

My LOOT….total cost for 7 shirts $45.60!

SEXY…BEACH…COOL: 2011 Resort Collections

25 Apr

 

If you're looking to turn some heads at the Beach this Summer, think strong bold prints, long flowy dresses, big sun hats, satin-linen cropped pants, and strappy sandals. This Summer's beach trends are full of bohemia and classic styles fused together. It's an explosion of summer fun and beach bum cool. You can get as down and dirty San Francisco Mission Style or hoytie toytie Park Avenue New York Style….the choice is really up to you! I've noticed that H&M, Macy's, and Old Navy have some fantastic maxi dresses and lovely printed blouses at great prices. Unless you're marrying Prince William on Friday, there is no need to spend a small fortunate on your Summer wardrobe. Some of my most prize clothing possessions are summer dresses I picked up at second hand shops!

Supreme & The North Face for MEN

22 Apr

 

How FLY are these Windbreaker Jackets for Men! I love them! Sad news though, the Windbreaker sold out online in 10 minutes and in the store in less than 24 hours. The hats are still available at www.supremenewyork.com. Oh if you're feeling like Daddy Warbucks you can always purchase the Windbreaker on ebay, they're going for about $500 a pop – almost double the original price!

Princess Diana: Fashion Icon

21 Apr

 

In one week Princess Diana's eldest son (Prince William) will wed his long time girlfriend (Kate Middleton). All this Royal Wedding talk has gotten me thinking about the classically beautiful Princess Diana and the magnificent contribution she made to the fashion industry. Here are a few of my favorite pieces that she wore, they are so spot on chic and will always be in style!

Look of the Day *The Paper Bag Skirt*

20 Apr

 

Sometimes a paper bag can be a good thing, especially when it's inspired the new hot skirt. The "Paper Bag Skirt" is shaping up to be the "it" skirt for this year. It's a fun, loose fitting and can be paired with almost anything. I love seeing this skirt with a simple lovely white tank top! As soon as Lent season is over on Sunday I will be hitting the Shops in search of my own "Paper Bag Skirt"!
