Wedding Gown Wednesday

We are going to do this a little bit different today.

See, I told you that when I would found out about Jessica Biel’s wedding gown I would share it with you.

Here is the info that we have so far.

People Magazine has given us our first glimpse of her gown.

Does this photo look really awkward to anyone else?

Here is a closer look.  Not the best photo.

Her gown was designed especially for her by Giambattista Valli.

Here’s the thing.  It looks exactly like his Style 39 gown from his Spring 2012 Couture Collection.

It looks like Jessica just had him take out a little bit of the fullness and change the color to more of a blush pink.

I have my own thoughts on this, but I’m interested to see what you think.

Do you like the blush?

Jessica has such a rockin’ body, but this gown doesn’t show it off.  Do you like that?

Let me know!

Look Out World!

A little busy today.

Why?

Boom!

 

Yeah.

It’s kind of a big deal.

Inside Edition is filming at one of my stores, so I’m not going to be able to blog today.  I hope you can forgive me.

My Favorite Movie

Well, one of them at least.

500 Days of Summer

I guess the reason I like it is because it’s pretty realistic.  The whole time I was watching I was thinking “Yes Summer, I get you.  I understand what you’re saying”, that’s when I would feel the person next to me tensing up.

The person in question is my Husband.  In certain points of the movie I would hear my husband scoff and tsk.  It was normally around the parts where quirky Zooey would say something to the effect of “but I just want to be friends” and then start making out with him.

We have had many discussions about that movie and how I’m on Summers’s side and he is on Tom’s.

Best part of the Movie

SHE TOLD HIM IT WAS JUST FOR FUN!!  It’s his fault for falling so hard for her (I love Joseph Gordon-Levitt though).

So, when I saw this engagement video, I was jealous.  WHY DIDN’T I THINK OF DOING THIS!

Sorry, there’s a lot of shouting in this post.

Well, here it is for your viewing pleasure.

Greatest Proposal!

Hope all of my friends from the good ‘ol US of A had a fantastic and memorable Memorial Day Weekend.  We celebrated by going out of the country with no phones or distractions.

It was wonderful.

This morning I had The Today Show on and they had the loveliest couple there.  They were on for no other reason than how this man proposed to his fiancé.

Now, if you have read my blog for a while, you know how I feel about first dances and proposals on youtube.  To me, they are a dime a dozen, so if I am putting one of them on my blog I must think it’s pretty great.  THE GREATEST in fact.  The thing I love about it is that not only does this couple love each other, but they have such great family and friends that love them too.

So, if you don’t tear up while watching this, you are a monster that doesn’t believe in love.  (I actually had to go reapply my eye makeup after this one).

So, without further adieu, THE GREATEST PROPOSAL.

Wedding Gown Wednesday (Thursday)

Have you seen the trailer for The Great Gatsby that’s coming out later this year?  If you haven’t, here it is

Ever since I read this book my sophomore year of high school it became a favorite of mine.  I don’t know if it had to do with the mystery of it all or the fact that it was set in the 20’s and I have always loved that era. (I think it all started with my favorite movie when I was young “Wild Hearts Can’t Be Broken.”  Do you remember that movie?  Still a favorite!)  The fashion was breathtaking.  You can only imagine my excitement when, a few years back, I was at the Bridal Fashion Market and coming down the runways were these vintage inspired 20’s dresses.

My heart leaped with happiness!!

Well, because of all of this 20’s excitement I chose this gown for the week

It’s not just the dress I’m dying over, it’s the whole look!  The designer, Johanna Johnson, not only makes these stunning gowns, but look at the accessories!

Can I get married again, please? (To the same man, of course)

There will be no explanation for this look because this photo speaks for itself.

And if you don’t get this look, than you don’t get fashion.  Sorry.

Sing Sing Sing

I won’t lie, I was kind of over fun first dances.

I guess I had just seen too many, not very funny, MC Hammer “Can’t Touch This” renditions and I was craving to see more classic “The Way You Look Tonight” kind of stuff.

I know.  I’m lame.

But then I saw Ryan and Frankie’s and that all changed.

 

Are they particularly good dancers?  Not really, but they are just so dang cute and pull it off so well.

I wanted to share this with you because THIS is what a fun first dance should be like.

Take it away Ryan and Frankie!

Angelina Jolie’s Wedding Gown

HELLO!

Wow!

I need to catch my breath for a second.

This ring is unreal.

Nice work Brad.

If you haven’t heard, Brad Pitt Finally popped the question to Angelina Jolie.  If you remember, they were always kind of “the cool kids” when it came to marriage.  It wasn’t important and the only reason they would do it is if their children wanted them to.

I know, I know.  A lot of people feel that way about marriage, but I’m just old fashioned I guess.

So I’ve been thinking about what kind of gown Angelina will pick for her wedding dress.  Here is what I have come up with.

She doesn’t seem the type (ya know, since we are best friends and everything) to have a traditional full ball gown.  She loves her slim figure so I think she will have to have a gown that shows it off with a slinky satin.  She always seems to pick out gowns that have a vintage flair.  With that said, here are my top picks for Angelina Jolie:

What do you think?

Sisters Are Doin’ It All Themselves

Seeing that it is International Women’s Day, I thought I would post a video that I received from a movement called Miss Representation. It started out as a simple documentary and has turned into something so inspiring and lovely.  If you are a woman, in love with a woman, a girl, a father of a girl, a brother of a sister or have a mother (I think that about sums up everyone in the world) you should watch the documentary.

Yes, I am in the fashion industry and sometimes I still get down at the fact that I am not as beautiful and thin as the size 0 models I work with and I would be lying if I said I don’t.  However, I know that I have more to offer than just how I look.  My most beautiful Brides I have worked with are not what the world would call  “beautiful”, but they truly have that glow of happiness and are lovely to be around.  I hope you enjoy this short video (Click Here) and check out the MissRepresentation documentary.

Girl Power.
