Something Blue

I'm still pouring over the images from the Royal Wedding. I'm
embarrassed to tell you how many times I've watched it all the
way through. While I know there are some people that share my
excitement over this, I also realize it's time to move on with life. 
So, today I'm sharing an older illustration that was intended to be
some sort of birthday card that never made it to the printing floor.

Not all designs make the cut, so this one will be filed away in the
"unused" folder. I still think she's cute enough to share, and that
dress... need!

The Duchess of Sussex

History has been made! Prince Harry and Meghan Markle
tied the knot (as if you weren't aware), and the wedding was
everything I had hoped for and more. Tons of friends and family
members were asking me what I thought of the event and dress
itself, and my thoughts are exactly this: it was perfect. The dress
was understated, classic but modern, chic and regal. The elaborate
veil was the statement maker that gave us this moment

Every detail was perfectly executed and every guest was smartly
dressed (Amal Clooney being the standout). What I wouldn't give
to have pictures from the reception(s)! Read all about the top secret
late party here. When Meghan stepped out in her second dress, a high-
neck gown by Stella McCartney, I gasped again. Not only was the simple
gown perfectly suited for her body and style, she was wearing an aquamarine
from Princess Diana's collection. It was another perfectly measured and 
executed move.

Which dress was your favorite? Which guest was your best dressed?
As I mentioned earlier, Amal Clooney (also in Stella McCartney) took
my breath away. What a refreshing choice...

As if the thoroughly modern American princess and Prince Harry
couldn't be more perfect, their official wedding portraits were just 
released this morning and they're effortless and casual showcasing
happiness in its truest form. See them here

The Duchess

Throwing it back one last time to William & Kate's wedding...

which one of Kate's looks was your favorite: the ceremony gown
or the reception gown?

Beatrice Bex

Leading up to the big day Saturday, let's talk about the guest list.
While we don't know exactly who is invited, we can assume these
two will be in attendance again. Victoria Beckham's navy blue 
ensemble made me gasp at William & Kate's wedding. So simple.
So chic. So her. Princess Beatrice, on the other hand, stepped out
in something more eye-catching for good or bad reasons. My initial
reaction was something along the lines of that's interesting mixed 
with a little bit of what was she thinking. However, over the course
of the two hour wedding, I found my eyes going straight to her. I
became more and more obsessed to the point where, other than Pippa,
Princess Beatrice's look was my favorite. 

Who are you most excited to see on Saturday? While the invitation
clearly states that the attire is "Uniform, Morning Coat or Lounge
Suit", there are sure to be some statement headpieces.
