And the Bride Wore McQueen

Wow. Just wow. Princess Catherine's McQueen dress by Sarah Burton was simply stunning. So many people have said it was too modern or not modern enough or the train wasn't long enough or it was too subdued and on and on and on. Honestly, I thought it was perfect. It was that right mix of modern and classic, and whatever anyone says might be wrong with the dress, there is no denying that she looked beautiful.

The lace flowers on the bodice and skirt were individually handmade and appliquéd using a combination of hand-cut Chantilly lace and English lace. Apparently, since the lace was from a variety of different manufacturers, making sure it was all the same color was a tricky task. The dress itself is made out of ivory and white satin gazar fabric, and fastened at the back with 58 organza covered buttons and Rouleau loops. The corseted bodice is narrowed at the waist and padded at the hips, a McQueen signature. The underskirt of the dress is made of silk tulle trimmed with Cluny lace.

The veil is made of ivory silk tulle and hand-embroidered by the Royal School of Needlework, and is held in place by a Cartier "Halo" tiara, on loan from the Queen, who received it in 1936 from her parents. Catherine's diamonds earrings were a wedding gift from her parents, and were made by Robinson Pelham to look like the Middleton's new family crest.

Now the real question remains, will Sarah Burton be the new designer for Dior?

Happy Easter Everyone!
Although I couldn't be with my family today, I was able to spend the day with some very fashionable friends, one of them being Miss Sara, who I have featured before, and will be featuring again soon. 
Not only is her style amazing, but she is also so fun to shoot, definitely a model in the making.

Perfectly Worn Chanel

Love those quilted soles

I adore how these aren't perfect and pristine - they are slightly dirty, but obviously loved.



Now those are some serious pants.

I know the color's a bit off-I hadn't quite figured out the camera just yet. but yes, those pants were green. With an animal print. On a bike.
So fab.
