The Royal Wedding

On Saturday, May 19th at 12 PM GMT (7 AM EST), Prince Harry and former American actress, Rachel Meghan Markle, tied the knot.

First things first, the dress. Elegant. Gracious. Simple. Timeless. “The Duchess of Sussex’s wedding dress has been designed by the acclaimed British designer, Clare Waight Keller, who last year became the first female Artistic Director at the historic French fashion house Givenchy. Ms. Markle  expressed the wish of having all 53 countries of the Commonwealth with her on her journey through the ceremony. Ms. Waight Keller designed a veil representing the distinctive flora of each Commonwealth country united in one spectacular floral composition,” reports Kensington Palace.

“The Duchess and Ms. Waight Keller worked closely together on the design, which epitomizes a timeless minimal elegance referencing codes of the iconic House of Givenchy,” the Kensington Palace shared on Instagram with the sketches of the Duchess of Sussex’s wedding dress.

However, as the philanthropic couple exchanged vows, they not only wed, but also made history. The confident and independent woman that Meghan has always been and the rebel that Prince Harry has been known to be, the two decided to break some royal traditions (with permission of the Queen) and start new ones.

img_6071

The first tradition broken regarded the guest lists: no heads of state were invited to ensure the closest and most important people to the Duke and Duchess of Sussex were allowed to attend the intimate ceremony at St. George’s Chapel in Windsor Castle. Unlike most royal weddings, this guest list brought together American actors and actresses, influential people in charity and sport, and members of the royal family turning it into one of the most modern royal weddings for its time.

Secondly, amid all of the unpleasant scandal surrounding the Duchess of Sussex’s father, Thomas Markle, the Prince of Wales, Prince Charles, joined the Duchess halfway through her procession down the Nave in St. George’s Chapel, which shows the Monarchy’s warm welcome of Ms. Markle into the royal family.

The Duchess of Sussex said “I do” with a traditional yellow gold wedding band. It was made from Welsh gold gifted by the Queen, made by Cleave and Company, and carried to the wedding by Prince Harry’s best man, Prince William, Duke of Cambridge. The happy couple did decide to follow tradition regarding Meghan’s wedding ring as the tradition holds a long list of royals who wear wedding bands made of Welsh gold.

The Queen Mother, Queen Elizabeth, Princess Margaret, Princess Anne, Princess Diana, Princess of Wales, and Prince Charles all followed the tradition, which began in 1923. Although, the Duke of Sussex, Prince Harry, decided to break tradition as he said “I do” with a platinum textured wedding band, according to US Weekly.

The Duchess of Sussex’s tiara was simply shining and glistening in the UK’s daylight as the couple stepped outside on to the steps of St. George’s Chapel.

The headpiece was identified as Queen Mary’s diamond bandeau tiara by Kensington Palace. The traditional tiara was made in 1932, but the center brooch is from 1893. Made of diamonds and platinum, in eleven sections with interlaced ovals, the  centerpiece is detachable, but the rest of the tiara was specifically made for that center brooch. It was lent to Ms. Markle by the Queen as she was given the tiara in 1953.

One of the sweetest traditions created by the Duke of Sussex had to be his hand-picking of the Forget-Me-Not flowers, Princess Diana’s favorite, from their garden to be included in the Duchess of Sussex’s bouquet in memory of his mother.

 

Another tradition is the first public kiss as a married couple, which the Duke and Duchess of Sussex wasted no time on as they kissed on the steps of St. George’s Chapel right outside where their wedding ceremony took place as “This Little Light of Mine” played in the background. They then waved to the public, which Prince Harry wanted just outside the castle to make us feel like we were apart of their special day, and then hopped in their carriage, led by a traveling Escort of the Household Calvary Mounted Regiment, for their procession through Windsor Town before being taken back to Kensington Palace for their tea hosted by the Queen and night-time reception hosted by Prince Charles at the Frogmore House.

According to Kensington Palace, “The Household Cavalry are among several Armed Forces personnel with a special relationship with The Duke providing ceremonial support at the wedding and carriage procession.”

Once arriving at the Reception, Ms. Markle had quite a wardrobe change. The Duchess of Sussex looked stunning in a silk gown designed by Stella McCartney. The accessories included satin Aquazurra pumps featuring baby blue soles for a little “something blue.”

Yes, the Duchess of Sussex made sure to follow the traditional something old, something borrowed and something blue. However, she worked these all into one for the Reception at the Frogmore House with a stunning aquamarine cocktail ring by Asprey that belonged to Princess Diana. Ms. Markle’s extra-long train and veil were thought to be a reference to the legendary ones Princess Diana wore at her own wedding; as well as, her post-ceremony gown, which featured a sexy silhouette more daring than royal tradition, evoking her late mother-in-law’s daring styles.

img_6124

According to Vanity Fair, there has been some speculation that the ring is not something borrowed as it may have been a gift from Prince Harry to his wife. Princess Diana left all of her jewelry to her sons in her will, but Ms. Markle clearly opted not to wear any of the pieces until the two were officially married.

img_6128

The ring was spotted on the Duchess of Sussex’s hand as she and Prince Harry left Windsor Castle in a vintage silver blue Jaguar E-Type Concept Zero. “The vehicle was originally manufactured in 1968, and has since been converted to electric power,” reports Kensington Palace.

img_6129

The sleeveless high-neck silhouette seemed to look a lot more comfortable for celebrating compared to the custom Givenchy gown worn for the ceremony and most importantly, the Royal Wedding family photos taken by photographer, Alexi Lubomirski, in the Green Drawing Room of Windsor Castle.

And let’s not forget the Royal Wedding cake. The wedding cake, which was served at the Reception, was designed by Claire Ptak and featured elderflower syrup made at the Queen’s residence in Sandringham from the estate’s own elderflower trees, as well as a light sponge cake uniquely formulated for the couple.

img_6119

Now until we all find someone who looks at us the way Prince Harry looked at Ms. Markle during the performance of “Stand By Me,” during their wedding ceremony… let’s cheers to the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, the Royal Family, and the babies we can’t wait for!

The Style of the Kentucky Derby

The Kentucky Derby is where you’ll find some of the fastest horses and the most eccentric looks. Every girl, from all parts of the world, channels their inner “Southern Belle” for the races. The Derby is a time where attendees are expected to dress in the most creative fashion and are encouraged to include accents showing their individuality.

The Louisville event, which is known for it’s preppy, pastel-filled fashion, was also abundant in floral patterns amongst the Derby’s attendees.

And the women weren’t the only ones displaying their “flower power” this year.

And don’t forget, in the Churchill Downs Infield the hats are the most extravagant; featuring flowers, feathers, bows and ribbons of the brightest and deepest colors. According to Courtney Stinson, a PR Manager for the Kentucky Derby Museum, “We don’t have a lot of documented history on the hats, but speculation has it that when the derby was first brought here, they wanted it to be a social affair.”

In 1875, hats were regarded as an essential everyday accessory for women who could afford them. At special events, such as the horse races, women wore elaborate hats to display their social status.

Last but not least, roses are another common design feature in some of the attendees’ attire as the Kentucky Derby is referred to as the “Run for the Roses.” The horse who has been declared the winner of the Derby is also given a blanket made of more than five hundred blossomed roses.

Who’s ready to head to Kentucky next year?

Ritz-ify the Romper

If rompers aren’t taking up a decent amount of space in your spring/summer wardrobe, you need to reevaluate your closet.

Rompers are a go-to for every causal or even semi-formal event. They’re easy to wear, simple to style and usually comfortable.

Kendall & Kylie’s clothing line at Pacsun features several summer ready styles.

Screen Shot 2017-04-19 at 2.22.48 PM

The Embroidered Ruffle Romper is a fun and flirty piece of the Spring season. It’s strapless, lined and features a ruffled hem. The details include a v-neckline, adjustable spaghetti straps, and a hidden zipper back. The fit is ideal as it appears tight and fitting, yet feels comfortable and light. The 100% cotton material is also machine washable so don’t stress about dropping food on the beautiful blue and white fabric.

Express is the place to go to seek out a romper for more formal occasions.

Screen Shot 2017-04-19 at 2.26.35 PM

The romper is available in sharp black and a deep blue. The color tone of the colors allow for all-season wear. The black can be worn with white pumps and a white statement necklace to summer-fy the look; and the blue can we worn with metallic strappy heels to make the bright hues really pop.

Kendall & Kylie’s Floral Lace Hem Romper is available at Pacsun in two colors: blue and pink.

Screen Shot 2017-04-19 at 2.24.32 PM

Also a fun and flirty piece of the Spring season, the sleeveless romper features adjustable spaghetti straps, a scoop neckline and an all over floral print. The embroidered lace detailing at the hem gives the romper a classy, yet formal look. The cinched elasticized waist does not take away from the flowy fit as the lightweight fabric is 100% cotton. Again, don’t stress about dropping food on your lace-hemmed love – it’s also machine washable 😉

So what are you waiting for? Rock a romper this weekend!

  2. Goyard passport holder

    Goyard Passport Holder
    The luxurious passport holder is a celebrity must-have according to Shay Mitchell and Morgan Stewart. The high-end accessories will cost quite a bit of cash, but luckily Tradesy and TheRealReal keep the prices a lot lower for the stylish non-celebs out in the world. The passport cover is even more lovable after having it monogrammed with your initials – just like Shay Mitchell did!

  3. Adidas Originals Stan Smith

    adidas originals xx Stan Smith
    Never really having gone out of style, the white sneaker is continuing its reign as another summer fashion favorite. In 2010, Phoebe Philo took her bow at the Céline S/S 2011 show wearing classic white Stan Smiths with green detailing. In 2014, J. Crew debuted the sneaker in their style guide and it quickly sold out. As all long-lasting trends begin at the runway then make it to retail the classic Stan Smith sneaker eventually found its way to the real girl. Adidas Stan Smiths are subtle, yet oh-so-covetable. They’re only $75 which is nothing compared to most “fashion girl” sneakers and go with everything. Choose from black, red or green detailing, or buy them all, and begin styling your looks around these sneakers. 
  4. MAHI Leather

    MAHI Leather

    The vintage style leather luggage is lovingly made to order with beautifully soft leather, sturdy brass fittings, and robust YKK zippers. The brand reduces waste by cutting out the middle men, which makes their luggage around 45% cheaper than high street equivalents. All bags can even be embroidered with your initials or a meaningful phrase.

    MAHI Leather
    takes its name from the Mahi River in India.  For many this is a sacred river and in a country where 103 million people lack safe water its significance is more than symbolic; that’s why MAHI Leather donates $1.50 from the sale of each bag to FRANK Water, a UK based charity which has helped over 300,000 people gain access to clean water since 2005. To date, MAHI has raised over $7,000, providing clean water, for life, for over 100 families in India.

  5. JBD Boyfriend Jeans

    JBD

    The Los Angeles based brand is dedicated to their mission of local manufacturing – creating product in the USA, nourishing a local community of craftsmen & craftswomen of denim. JBD is solving women’s denim-dilemma one style at a time by creating the pair that forms to every curve and fits so damn well. Sold in boutiques across Europe & North America, each pair of jeans is created carefully by hand, resulting in years of labor and skill fueled by dedication to the craft.

Is Triangl worth the splurge?

It’s no secret that the Aussie girls’ trends always make it over to the States, and Triangl bikinis were one of the most popular as fashion girls are still obsessed with them today.

The swimwear line was started by a newly engaged couple – Erin Deering and Craig Ellis – in December of 2012 after their second date at the beach when Deering couldn’t find a bikini to wear. She was looking for fashionable and quality swimwear without overspending.

The Australian swimwear line caters to those seeking effortlessly cool swimwear that suits summer, sunshine, and the beach. It’s practical and fashionable as it can be worn all day long at the beach; to swim in, sunbath in, run around, etc.

“Simple, classic and cool,” said Deering. “We are influenced by anything that falls into those three categories.”

Triangl swimwear is unique for several reasons, but the comfort and fit are two of its main selling points – thanks to the use of neoprene in all of their pieces. “It’s an exciting fabric to work,” said Deering, “as it allows for the bikinis to hold their shape and look really structured and modern.”

By the way, the neoprene is responsible for giving us the perfect shape by smoothing out any little bumps 😉

The couple is influenced by the endless summer mindset which has encouraged them to design so many colors and shapes. The bikini tops and bottoms can all be mixed and matched to create a new look every time. The quality of the swimwear is definitely worth the price for those of us in the United States who pay about $100 per Triangl bikini set (including international shipping).

Two summers ago, the swimwear originally featured the classic Triangl bikini which became a staple in every American girl’s closet.

IMG_3949

However, the brand eventually added more colorful designs that featured color blocked styles and stitching details.

Screen Shot 2017-04-03 at 11.07.09 PM
Now as the one piece is looking to be the swimwear staple in every fashion girl’s closet this Summer, Triangl has added one pieces to their collection.

Screen Shot 2017-04-03 at 11.16.59 PM

So what are you waiting for? It’s time for you to Tri a suit on!

Spring for Summer’s Classic Short Styles

The four pairs of shorts every fashion girl will need this season: embroidered, destroyed, lace and floral. Whether they’re flared, fitted or slouch, it’s not their style that matters, but how they’re embellished.

Gigi Hadid has no shame in her embroidered obsession as the supermodel has been spotted wearing embroidered clothing quite often over the past year. Embroidery adds a little something extra to the denim you already love and allows you to customize your otherwise classic denim style.

For a simple embroidered look, try Express Embroidered Graphic Cutoff Shorts or Lulu’s Rustic Charm Medium Wash Embroidered Denim Shorts – I just ordered them 😉

Many may say the destroyed denim look is a thing of the past but fashion editors and stylists like Zanna Rossi, Brad Goreski and Rachel Zoe would have to disagree; as long as you style the look properly.


Whether you’re gearing up for Spring or heading somewhere tropical, lace is a perfect way to fancy-up a casual look. These Hint of Summer Shorts from Tobi are currently sold out, but the Casanova Endless Rose Short in Nude Pink is still available on Revolve ( and on sale 😉 )


Tinsel’s Crocheted Accented Cut-Off Shorts are currently sold out at Lord & Taylor; however, for a simple crocheted denim short, try Target’s Crochet Raw Hem Medium Wash and Lace Light Wash.


Floral is something that has stayed throughout the Winter pretty much so it will definitely appear in more on the runways this Spring! Floral shorts are the solution to adding some personality to your simple looks. Kendall & Kylie have tons of floral in their new Spring collection for Pacsun.


And let’s not forget the post-Memorial Day go-to: white denim.


Best stores to find these shorts:

  1. Express
  2. Forever 21
  3. Asos
  4. Nasty Gal
  5. Pacsun
  6. Net-a-Porter
  7. Target

P.S. Work the system a little bit – If you see a pair of shorts you love and are indecisive to buy, check out the store’s return policy and if it’s reasonable, buy it! Your favorite shorts, or any clothing items, will sell out fast, so if you can return merchandise later on… play it safe and buy now, decide later.

“Yes-Merising” by Charlotte Tilbury

“Captivate the room in just one glance with my Eyes to Mesmerise Cream Eye Shadow pots,” says Tilbury. The shadow is a genius cream-to-sheen formula that creates a maximum quality impact with minimum simple effort. The easy to apply shadow shines and stays on the lid all day without creasing – which means no need for mid-day touch ups! The shadow is the “ultimate foolproof product” as it forms part of Charlotte’s “One-Minute No-Mirror Makeup” routine.

Charlotte Tilbury’s Eyes to Mesmerise Long-Lasting Easy Cream Eyeshadow ($32) is available in six lustrous shades:

Bette is a warm, burnished chocolate shade, Cleopatra a vibrant, smokey peacock shade,
Jean a shimmering gold pink champagne shade, Marie Antoinette a soft golden mink shade, Mona Lisa a warm amber bronze shade and Veruschka a mink khaki shade.

Jean is a gorgeous shade of sparkling-pink champagne. The iconic beauty of Marilyn Monroe inspired the shade. For a timelessly chic result ideal for everyday wear, apply Charlotte’s The Classic Eyeliner Powder Pencil in Sophia ($22).

the-classic-eyeliner-powder-pencil

Soft-focus, illuminating pigments smooth over the delicate eye area, blurring lines and imperfections for a visibly flawless finish. Using your fingertips to apply the shadow creates a sheer wash of color across the eyelid for a flattering look; however, using a damp or dry brush for application across the eyelid, and lower lash line for high-impact, will create a more dramatic effect.

What’s in My Bag?

Smaller camera bags were seen on the S/S 16 runways a lot last year. Storing all your daily essentials, these bags are structured an easy to wear. The trend doesn’t seem to be going anywhere following the popularity of Mansur’s Gavriel’s sold-out-everywhere bucket bag. For girls on the go, the handbag style provides form and function. The mini bag madness took over for Spring 2016 as the trend was seen in the collections of Chanel and Gucci in either classic black or brighter floral prints. The mini bag is a trend applicable to all styles for all fashion girls.

As a crossbody girl, I’ve learned how to easily consolidate my daily carry all into an approximately 7” x 9” x 3” handbag.

Valentino

First off, my car keys and house keys with the gym membership card attached that I haven’t belonged to for months now.

My Louis Vuitton key pouch in Damier Azur Canvas to hold my credit card, debit card, Lord & Taylor card, etc. and some spare cash without the inconvenience of a big chunky wallet

A Kind bar and Special K bar because I panic when I don’t have food on me

A pack of Trident whitening gum for after my snack

A small bottle of Tylenol and some feminine products because you never know when Aunt Flow is going to crash the party

A to-go packet of Kleenex tissues

Some Wet Ones or hand sanitizer – I’m quite the germaphobe so I keep both on me.

Softlips chapstick because nothing makes me crankier than having dry lips – I also love Blistex Silk and Shine and Blistex Soft and Lush

A mini eyeglasses kit because my sunglasses seem to always get loose and fall apart – thanks Marc Jacobs

And last but not least, a mini bottle of mace because my boyfriend wanted to know I was safe while I was living in Manhattan
