i declare this the day dress -- how fun for errands, lunch, coffee, shopping!
|The Kiki $238|

|The Cameron $268|
yacht-club chic, yes? love the madras and little ruffle up top
|The Madison $148|
the one-shoulder is my style for summer, especially since i've been pumping iron!
|The Bethanne Embellished $628|
the show-stopper in sequins...this is a sparklie one that needs a special event
|The Chloe $248|
and another one-shoulder in the lovely floral bouquet of pink and green!
the dresses keep getting better and our collections keep growing!
now, to plan an event and convince our husbands of this need!

i remember begging for my first pair of jelly shoes in the 1980s
i had them in clear, of course, followed by white, black and grey
(i guess my mama had me as a more neutral and practical gal back then)
and now, 30 years later, i've got my eye on
the newest generation of jellies
a-la lilly and tory!
what do you think of the new jellies?
will you wear them this summer?

does that spell derby weekend or what?
and just what to dress your man in this saturday?
how about this adorable tie from southern proper?
(it also comes in pink!)
i'll be donning my oversized hot pink hat
that i wore for the royal wedding party
now, which horse to bet on?
i'm thinking about putting $2 down
on every one -- this is going to be a great race!

cocktail hour = the cocktail dress
and such the inspiration for the Museum of Art
at Providnce's Rhode Island School of Design's
Ritual and Invention in American Fashion, 1920-1980
going on now through July 30
It's actually one of the museum's largest exhibitions
of costume and textiles
and will cover the eras of prohibition to disco....
how women dressed and defined it withe personal expression.
With featured designers such as Balenciaga, Chanel, Lilly,
Pucci and Dior,
I cannot wait to dress up, grab a drink and a gal pal and go!

the excitement is building...
and i find it even hard to sleep,
just thinking and dreaming about the big day
(i know this is crazy...
mr prep is ready to move out until the hub-bub is over)
and i love that kate and will are giving us
a taste of something new each day
like this gorgeous new photo!
today i wanted to honor miss kate,
soon to be referred to as catherine,
with a little pink and green!
she looks lovely in both colors, yes?
one swirling rumor is that she might choose
her "something borrowed"
from the queen's jewelry box
and wear this stunning emerald choker diana wore to an event
but what do you think she's chosen to wear on her honeymoon?
a few suggestions, in pink and green, if i might
and something for will, of course!
tomorrow is a BIG day! happy wedding day
to all you royal watchers!
enjoy your early morning tea and tv!
