Illuminating elegance

I love these pictures of fashion week from From Me To You. Frozen in time, the pictures encapsulate an almost classic era.It was quite near impossible to pick only a few so I HIGHLY recommend viewing them in their entirety on her blog. The beauty of the pictures is paralleled by the layout, which takes you inside, outside and behind the whole event. It’s the same fashion week viewed by the rest of the world, yet shown in a whole new light.

Marchesa Spring 2011

Words cannot describe.

3.1 phillip lim

I am almost ashamed to say it, but sadly I was disappointed by a few of my favorites at fashion week. The 70's revival of Diane Von Furstenberg and Marc Jacobs felt flat, and Oscar de la Renta's prom felt more like a grandmother's tea party. But then I saw 3.1 Phillip Lim, and my life was changed.

Thank you Mr. Lim for opening my eyes, for while I need to buy that new English text book I need those glittery, perfection of a poka-dot, pants.

Life Lesson: The Diva Snap

"Precision, pacing, placement, poise a sophisticated snap is more than just noise"

I am a personal fan of the Medusa snap, but the man at the end had a point. Two hands are far better than one.

Guest Post: I do (someday, maybe)

Today, I am honored to christen "Carl and Anderson" with their first guest blogger entry. These two fashionable and simply savvy ladies have a great bit of good to say, and I can only hope that my entry here tonight will be in some way comparable to their past opinions. So here it goes:
Lately, with the start of a new school year at a southern baptist college, the topics of marriage, relationships, love, and dating have come up with a frequency that is dangerously close to criminal. Not that I don't appreciate a good opportunity like a date or wedding to throw on a fabulous dress and my best dancing shoes (cut to above picture of the Kennedy nuptials), but why at twenty years old must marriage and love be our foremost concern? Why not coast? Meet, greet, mingle, enjoy the lovely and interesting people this world has to offer, and then upon meeting someone a bit more fantastic than the rest find myself feeling ready. Maybe, just maybe, would it be okay to wait until the moment hits me to want marriage. Could it possibly be that we, as a human race, are able to be content with our romantic situations married or single? I am currently leaning towards a ringing affirmative. I think I might just try my very best to recognize where I am in life as a good place and recognize that when dating, love, and marriage opportunities arise that hopefully they'll be good ones too. That's it for now.
