Always a bridesmaid.

My father is getting re-married this weekend. I must say I am quite excited - his fiance is lovely! I will be a bridesmaid (and have yet to purchase a dress..) The color palatte is "black, ivory, with a touch of crimson." All the bridesmaids will be wearing black cocktail dresses, but we can choose any style we like.

The ceremony will be taking place in Nashville, at the Hermitage.

Guests will be staying at the Hutton Hotel

The reception will be at Giovanni's. They are serving adorable cupcakes!

I tried forever to find a picture of her wedding dress to no avail. It is a strapless ivory gown by AKRIS. Unique and stunning. Her shoes are ivory Christian Louboutin pumps. She already owned some brilliant vintage emrald and ruby canderleir earrings that are perfect with her dress. She will be so beautiful!
Here are some possibilities for my dress...please let me know how you like them.

Baby put on that party dress.

This last week has been a whirlwind of tests, family tension, stress and...well a few really fantastic moments mixed in there. How has your week day been?

While shopping the other day I ran into this beautiful ruffle confection. I have a blouse by the same brand, MM Couture, and it has become one of my wardrobe staples. If I wasn't trying to save up for New York shopping I would have bought it on the spot!

Clémence Poésy

[click picture to view larger!]

Here's one of my sketches from an old Nylon cover. Considering my lack of experience I think it turned out quite nicely. It doesn't look quite the same scanned but it will have to do. You should see her shirt in color! Stunning.

Should I post more? I have some of Camilla Belle, Daria Werbowy and Blake Lively.

Pour quoi?

Took this on my Blackberry this morning...please forgive the horrendous picture quality. These are two of my favorite pieces!

shoe: Chanel, lambskin
bag: Juicy Couture, black leather

I'll be visiting my dream school in one short month...

I am passionately, irrevocably in love with New York.

As I am getting bored of school, I find myself sketching quite a bit lately. Maybe I will post some on here?

Speaking of art, Danny of Igor + Andre just posted his latest work of art available for purchase today:

Coveting! At $35, this masterpiece is a STEAL.

Isn't she lovely?

New Yorkers for Children's A Fool's Fête
Hana Soukupova

Verging cupcake territory? Perhaps, but this was a fashion risk worth taking. The colors work together beautifully with her hair & skin tone. Nice work!

Go ahead, Inspire me.

I am finding inspiration everywhere I turn lately! So many great blogs, magazines, pictures, clothes, people...

Atlantis Vintage

amazing inspiring

I was thrilled to death that Kristen Stewart was on the cover of NYLON. Already an amazing magazine, they really outdid themselves on the March issue. How will they follow that up?

All for now!

Clair de Lune.

I find Kristen Stewart fascinating... she is absurdly talented and beautiful. Yet I get the feeling she has no idea. Or just doesn't care.

Spring Fever.

I have been quite preoccupied lately! Ah, but there is always time for fashion.

I must admit that as of lately I have been less than inspired with a lot of things I have seen coming out for spring. My prom dress hunt seemed it would epically fail..

With my latest trip to Nordstrom, my hope in fashion has been revived! Everywhere I turned I saw things that looked like they belonged to a fairytale princess... a very hip, sophisticated one at that.

I have been head-over-heels with nearly EVERYTHING Marc has been revealing lately. For instance, the Marc by Marc Jacobs number above, evokes the feeling of spring in every sense of the word.

Love Story.

I was browsing Nordstrom's a few days ago when I encountered this stunning Marc Jacobs clutch. There it was, sitting on it's pedestal in all it's purple glory...I was a hopeless case. The rest of the day I wandered around, looking at all the hopelessly inferior merchandise, hoping to find something even half as thrilling to my fashion taste buds. So here I am, days later, still dreaming of it. But with a price tag of $795, I might as well keep dreaming.
