Royal Wedding - Dresses for You!





The Frock of the Moment



Meghan Markle (Navy Roland Mouret - Barwick Dress) & Her Mother, Doria Ragland

May 19th is hours away from the wedding of the year to commence between American born Meghan Markle and across the pond royal, Prince Henry.  It will indeed be quite exciting with 1B people watching with delight and happiness from around the world.   The fashion, the people, the celebrities, the royals, the horses, the carriage, Queen Elizabeth II and so much more.  Yesterday, while shopping with a girlfriend for her wedding dress, we stumbled upon a dress collection by Chiara Boni La Petite Robe that is simply divine.  In fact, I do believe the commentators on The Today Show this a.m. were sporting frocks similar to this brand.  Ms. Markle above in the photograph is wearing a dress by Roland Mouret that sings the same silhouette.   Bottom line, these dresses are elegant, minimal and extremely flattering.  Additionally, for a royal wedding shoulders must always be covered accompanied by a fashionator, gorgeous pumps and a small handbag.  For us American's a hat is not necessary but covering the shoulders is a nice touch. Give these concoctions a royal whirl. You too can be a princess for a day.  A spot of brilliance.

  1. I was quite disappointed in the bride's dress -- booorrring! Diana's dress was ridiculously over the top sleeve-wise but Meghan's much too ho-hum. I do love those silly little hats they wear tho wish we had them in U.S. ! I have a dress just like the fuschia asymetrical hem Spanish type dress you show here except it's sleeveless -- been wearing it for 15 years I bet and it's still simply fab! Luv ya Kimmy!

Merry Christmas 2020

  Ho! Ho! Ho! Merry Christmas one and all.  May you have a very festive day.   What a crazy year!  At the onset of the year 2020, we all had the best intentions, goals, and anticipation.   Of course, 2020 proved to be the opposite of anything we expected.  Completely 180 degrees of "What Now?"   There is no need to explain because we all have lived it.  What is for certain is that the year is finally ending. Thank goodness.  Some have stated this was the worse year in the history of our country.  Whether it was or is not, the end is in sight and a vaccine is beginning to be administered.  Hopefully, we each can reassess what is important in our lives, anticipate some sort of normalcy swooping back into our lives.  After all, we are social creatures and being isolated is not healthy for the mind or the body.  Spirit of Christmas - The Christmas Star Last Seen 1226 Never stop believing in the future and unknown.  This season we all decorated to the nines, baked cookies, laid ou

Inspiration Weekly Lift - Happy Holidays

  What Brings You Joy? The Spirit of the Holidays It is the small things after all that brings a joyous glow to this holiday season.  This morning, my husband, lit up the living room mantle with some new lights for me to see.  The effect was beautiful, and it made my day sparkle.  Now more than ever, these cherished gestures are what we are longing for at the end of 2020.  And there are many for us to receive and for us to give to others.  We need to be present and aware of the beauty swirling around us.  What we know for certain is that everything in 2020 has been turned upside down. Yet, we continue, dust ourselves off and keep on moving with grace, a smile, and a positive attitude.  Like Cindy Lou Who in the Grinch Who Stole Christmas .  After all, why not?  No one can break our spirits and love for each other.  The holiday is here with new festivities.  We are constantly reminded that our lives are the best gift.  Of course, it is.  We may not have gatherings, but the heart of the

Happy New Year - 2021

  A New Chapter "Cheers to the new year and another chance for us to get it right." - Oprah Winfrey The end of the year fast approaches.  It has been a roller coaster ride for everyone.  The virus, lockdowns, tragic deaths, national election, and other elements caused for a turbulent and unforgettable year.  One we will never forget.  Some say this is the worst year in our history surpassing the depression of the 1930's, September 11th and various Wars.   Perhaps this is so because our country and the entire world shut down at various points.  Even today, lock downs exist, virus is on the rise and vaccines are being administered.  We will never forget last Spring and Summer when eerie photos of empty streets filled the newswires, epic violence occurred and of course endless news about the benevolent virus. However, we continue onward.  We eagerly move forward to a fresh beginning.  We wash away 2020 and start anew with a clean slate filled with possibility, hope and peace

Over the Knee Boots - Monday Favorite Things

  New Day, New Dawn, New Life "Give a girl the right set of boots, shoes, and she can conquer the world." - Marilyn Monroe January 2021 is here.  Yes. We have patiently waited, been thoughtful, diligent and now the year is upon us.  Wishing happiness to all of you as we battle on.  The end is nearing for the virus, which brings smiles to everyone.  It is an exciting time with revitalized energy coursing through our veins.  An era of promise hope and  much more.  Get ready to soar, achieve your dreams and spread goodwill toward others.  "What good is the warmth of summer with out the chill of winter?" - John Steinbeck Along the path, winter has arrived.  Rain, snow, sleet, and hail in the mix for some and in the future for others.  What I love right now?  Over the knee boots.  A must for the cold days of winter.  Here are my favorites for a winter wonderland of fashion.  Even if you are working from home, there is nothing better than slipping on a beautiful pair of o
