Seeting the Mood: Flower Power

By |May 7th, 2012|Setting the Mood|

flower mood boardAre we done?  Are we done with those April showers?  Cause you’ve been awfully temperamental this year, Ms. Nature.  I don’t really know what your problem is, but it’s May and you promised flowers.  And I’m going to hold you to that.

What girl doesn’t like receiving or at least admiring fresh flowers?  The answer is a cold hearted one.  Remember when Lady Malks, taught us what our favorite flowers said about us?  I think there’s a lot to be said about your taste in flora and fauna.  Granted, I’ve rarely met a flower I didn’t like.  Although there are a few flowers that I just can not (will not) tolerate.  Carnations and gerber daisies – the cantaloupe of flowers.  Why don’t you just send me an Edible Arrangement?

Well, anyway, flowers aren’t just for sniffing anymore.  This year, there’s a plethora of ways to wear your florals, having you looking fresh as a flower (not a daisy).

Shall we go ahead and acknowledge the upcoming calendar holiday (ahem, Valentine’s Day)?  Knowing you pretty (and smart) ladies, you’ve probably already got a handful (or more) of handsome suitors just willing you to be their Valentines.  As a matter of fact, they’re probably doodling your name as we speak.  Whether or not you oblige one of these lucky gentlemen on their offer or opt to hit the town with your favorite gal pals instead, it’s never too early to start planning your outfit.  Stick to traditional red, a splash of fuchsia, or spice things up with a playful pattern.  These frocks are sure to get all kinds of hearts aflutter.

Friday Frocks: Queen of Bling

By |December 9th, 2011|Friday Frocks, Why Did You Wear That?|

What’s that you say?  You love looking like a human disco ball?  Well, aren’t you in luck.  Today’s Friday Frocks is for all my fellow blingophiles (yeah, I just made that up. So what?).  If just simple sparkly accessories won’t cut it, yet you aren’t quite comfortable with prancing down the runway in a $2.5M bra like Miranda Kerr, then I’ve got several other sequin covered creations that may very well be right up your alley.

1. French Connection Samantha Sequin Dress, $298, 2.Balmain Silk Stripe Sequin Dress, $4,765, 3. Vintage 90’s High Slit Sequin Dress, $219, 4. Antik Batik Magenta Sequin Dress, $427, 5. Kensie Sequin Dress, $88, 6. Lipsy Shift Dress, $136.35, 7. Rachel Zoe One Sleeve Sequin Dress, $295, 8. Matthew Williamson Liquid Sequin Dress, $3,062, 9. French Connection Lucinda Sequin Dress, $248, 10. TFNC Sequin Dress, $99.99

Remember not to accessorize your blingy dress with more blingy accessories.  This is and “either/or” situation.  I’ll let you and Marilyn fight it out for the title of “Queen of Bling.”
