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!

What I Love This Week - Ray-Ban Sunglasses




My well-loved polarized Ray-Bans are scratched from constant wearing and setting them down.  Apparently, I should have put them in their case more than I did.  One day while driving, I noticed that the scratches on the lens were bothering me.  Upon a recent trip to my favorite store, I spotted a new pair of shades. 
I tried them on and the rest is history.   I love these retro sunglasses.  They fit perfectly and have the polarization that is a must.  Why?  A glass surface is horizontal, the light reflects horizontally.   With polarized sunglasses, the surface filters out the horizontal light waves and protects from harmful UV rays.
For example, wear a pair of sunglasses without polarization and investigate a river or lake.  You will not see the fish swimming clearly.  With polarized sunglasses you can see the fish with an eagle eye.  Thus, my fascination with wearing only polarized lenses. 
By the way, I wear sunglasses year-round protecting from…

7 Ways to Become a Butterfly

Don't Crush the Butterfly!


"Despite everything, no one can dictate who you are to other people." - Prince




Butterfly's come in all shapes and sizes painted in dazzling and colorful hues.  The beauty and varied differences of the butterfly are astounding and beloved by the beholder.  There are approximately 20,000 species throughout the world dancing in the sun and air.   Yet, what does a butterfly mean to fashionistas? Well, for one all the people of the land can evolve into creative and wondrous butterflies.   It is through the journey of life that sometimes the environment, family, friends and peers willingly crush the beauty and charming essence of you  - the exotic butterfly.






Don't Destroy the Wings of Flight
There will always be the vengeful, the user, the hateful or a person filled with jealousy and envy that clips the wings of the butterfly.  Their insecurities reign supreme and a beautiful butterfly ready to spread its wings can sometimes be stunned with …

What I Love This Week - Perfume - Scents, seductive, fresh and oh so beautiful



Lancome's Le Vie est Belle Eau De Parfum (Life is Beautiful) is lovely and unforgettable.  Have you ever worn a perfume that receives lots of comments?  I personally love this scent.  And, yes others do comment.  
The name of the perfume constantly reminds me that life is indeed beautiful.  Life is a gift.  It is to be cherished and and should be enjoyed.  Don't let Negative Nelly'sAngry Annie's or Righteous Rita's ruin your day. Avoid those that do not lift your spirits or make you smile.  Seek out laughter with others either online or in-person. 
Spritz on your favorite perfume.  Put on something pretty and start the day with the knowledge that your life choices and decisions matter.  You are special.   
Lancome's Le Vie est Belle Eau De Parfum  has floral notes of sambac, jasmine and Tunisian orange blossom. This perfume is for the woman who lives in the present and loves her life. …
