da da da da, da da da daaaah

It is here!! It’s past midnight which means it’s Friday 29th April 2011!! I could probably do with going to bed seeing as I’m gonna be up super early for various celebratory activities (wine), but (cue Disneyland advert) I’m too excited….done some sickeningly patriotic nails….both Nails Inc. Red: St. James, Blue: Phoenix Street.I did do a little ‘W’ and ‘K’ on the middle tips, but they looked shit so I re-did them. No one was around to help. The blue looks much blue-er to the eye if that makes any sense at all.

SO, anyway, twitter tells me Kate’s 100% wearing Sarah Burton. Obvs, only appropriate choice. Hopefully Ms. Burton’s arrival at Kate’s hotel tonight wasn’t a red herring. ANYWAY, the dress. I’m betting on totally chic & modest – maybe a little bit vintage-y. Either a soft A-line or fishtail? Maybe some sort of clever pleating? Little off the shoulder cap sleeves methinks. God, this is exciting. I hope, by way of dedication, that there is a little bird hidden somewhere for McQueen, even if it’s stitched inside – that would be cute and nice. I literally can’t post pictures of would-be gowns because it’ll take me HOURS to find the nicest ones.

However, I also hear Gina are doing the shoes?????????????????WTF are you serious? I wished and wished for it to be Rupert Sanderson, he could have designed some b-e-a-utiful shoes. Shame.

Now, the hair. The hippie inside me wants down, glossy and lots of flowers. They could be bluebells, seasonal and ‘something blue’ ticked off neatly. This is nice:

But realistically, while it will be glossy, it’ll probs be all chic and non-Almost Famous.


I’ll leave you with the lushest bridal moodboard from Style Me Pretty (guilty pleasure fave)…If I got married tomorrow, this is the tone I’d want.

….and a bit of this…


tshirts and other nice things

Saw some nice tees on Topshop.com: Tees, ‘Cat’ & ‘Princess’ respectively, £25 each Topshop Boutique. Would wear on a night out with some nice jewellery and Glitzy (note the capital G) bottoms, ones just like these…AMAZING!!! well loads of £dollar though… so would more realistically wear with…Skirt, £35 Topshop. Also loving this lot:Mmmmm stuff.

mmmm lingerie and photographic niceness

I came accross Ell & Cee lingerie the other day, it’s beeeeautiful. I have refused to buy cheaply made, ill-fitting underwear since I started working as a bra fitter, so it’s a subject I’m pretty passionate about. La Senza makes me wanna vom quite a lot. I can’t stress the importance of a correct fit enough…but more on that in another post. The brand, designed by Laura Cloke has featured at LFW and claims to cling to “fashionable derriéres everywhere”. Check it.

I particularly love this set ^  called Sweet Violet (it’s actually now in the sale, so even buffer) Check the close up pic…

They also do super lush kimonos and nightdresses…

So nice.
