Wedding Wishes

25 Feb

It’s Wedding Week, so I thought I’d take a few moments to share my visualization of what I want on that special day.  For starters, I want to look like a bride.  I want a gown with high drama, glamour, and haute couture.  I love the designs of St. Pucci.  But you have to be careful with these dresses so that you don’t look like you belong on the cake! 



I love the sweetheart neckline and the flamenco skirt.  Pretty, romantic, and classic.

The drama of this dress is to die for! The detailing is just too exquisite for words!

Lazaro Bridal Gowns, Wedding Dresses: Style LZ3102

Just lovely!

I want my “something blue” to be my shoes in a pale, pretty hue

And I’m wearing gloves, too

And my hair will likely be like this:

Or an elegant ballet-style bun that will show off the neckline and jewelry better:

I want a color this shade on my french tips to carry the blue theme further:

I also loved Naomi Pajon’s self-designed gown.  Here’s a back view

And the front

What about you?

Haute Mama

My baby boy will be turning one soon, but I will still need a diaper to tote on errands or when he visits family and/or friends.  I don’t like diaper bags that look like such.  I want something cute and stylish. Afterall, I have to carry it! Here are a few of my choices:

Juicy Couture Rugby Stroller Bag $298

But who knows, I may even go with a budget friendly backpack!

The Ballet Flat

22 Feb

As a self-professed balletomane, I’m loving one of spring’s trends–the ballet flat.  They are versatile, comfortable, and most are affordable.  The ones below are on the higher end of the spectrum, but reasonably priced and chic flats can be found all over.

The Ponytail Scarf

18 Feb

There are several ways to use this accessory other than what it is labeled for.  For picture taking purposes, I used my friend Barbie as a model.

Weekend Warrior

I went shopping on Sunday and got:

Lace Fabric Scarf

Peach lace scarf from The Limited $26.90.  So feminine and pretty, I just had to have it! It looked gorg next to my milk chocolate shruken leather jacket but can be paired with most anything.

Perfect tee from The Gap $10       Crease T from The Gap $14.50 A wardrobe staple.  I’ll be clutching my pearls in the v neck along with my lace Vita booties.  Impatiently awaiting their arrival…

Belle Du Jour Sweater, Open Front Long Sleeve Knit Mesh Cardigan

Belle du Jour cardigan in olive Macy’s $19.99 So cute that I have it on today! I love the wrinkled look and the netted details.  Olive is a nice neutral color that goes well with most shades.
