The Wedding on Everyone's Lips

     I am happy to say that I am not one of the thousands that woke up early (or stayed up late) to watch the broadcast at 5am. In fact, I woke up at 11 this morning thinking it was only Thursday! I perused the newly posted pictures of the wedding with my morning coffee and was surprised by the simplicity of Kate's gown. It was a refreshingly elegant choice on her part and divinely detailed on Sarah Burton's. It's apparent that her dress echoed that of Grace Kelly's when the actress married Prince Rainier of Monaco, but Middleton also had clear distinction of her own. The v-neckline gave a very modern touch and her train wasn't overwhelmingly long. Her maid-of-honor and sister, Pippa, was equally striking. She wore a white, cowl-neck column gown that broke every rule in the book about what the maid-of-honor is supposed to wear. Perhaps the Middleton sisters have started a new trend? Maybe we'll be seeing more bride and maid-of-honor duos both wearing white!

     Did anyone notice Victoria Beckham's heels? I would like to know how she managed to wear six inches of wobbly stilettos when she's six months pregnant! Accompanying her, husband David Beckham cleaned up his look quite nicely in a dashing tuxedo. The couple looked very posh indeed!

Chriz Benz Fall 2011 RTW

     After spending some time in Savannah, Georgia, Chris Benz created his latest collection reflecting the southern style he had been surrounded by. He translated his inspiration into trapeze dresses and luxurious coats that are free-spirited and edgy. While most of his color palette was dark and muted, his collection is also sprinkled with a few breathtaking brights, such as my personal favorite-the pink, tiered, floral dress with bell-sleeves and velvet ribbon. Chris balanced light garments with heavier ones. While some of his silky and ruffled dresses seemed to almost float in the air, his Lurex-threaded tweed jackets and additions of fur were grounded. His most interesting print, plumes of smoke on a black background, was one that echoed the spookiness of ghost stories and full moons.

     Hey everyone! I am happy to say that I am reentering the blogosphere after a long absence due to late night drama club rehearsals and performances. We performed Seussical the Musical and it was such a blast. All the costumes were in fantastic patterns and bright colors. I played a "bird girl," decked out in fishnets, a short skirt, and boas! Being my last year of high school, I'm definitely going to miss being in drama. I've been a part of it since freshman year and it has been the best club that I've ever been a part of!
Me and my best friend Rose.

All of us bird girls!

     In other news, I have decided on which college I'll be attending in the fall...Emerson College! I am extremely excited! I honestly thought I wouldn't be able to go there because of the expense, but I got enough in financial aid that I can! I am looking so forward to being in Boston and going to a school that has an awesome journalism program. Stay tuned for posts about all my pre-college preparations!
