Monogram Me!

I am a lover of all things monogrammed. For some of you this is a surprise, and for others, well...

you catch my drift. Above are just a few of my fave monogrammed things. I recently have stumbled upon the holy grail of monograms. Now with horse back riding you have blankets, saddle pads, trunks, etc. and all of them are monogrammed, so I thought I have seen it all, until...

It is a website that monograms pillows, napkins, place mats and bags. They combine unique fonts and styles with glam prints. I am truly in LOVE!

Can't wait to buy it ALL!
My love for monograms will continue, because they are timeless, cute and PERSONALIZED after all.

Parade of Hats

and the fun continues...

I don't care what people say, I LOVE my girls
Beatrice && Eugenie!
AND they always look fabulous!

Royally Right

The wedding...Gorgeous
The Bride...Stunning

Duchess of Cambridge Catherine wore, as properly guessed by me, Alexander McQueen wedding dress designed by Sarah Burton. 

Adored in a tiara by Cartier that was made in 1936 and has adorned the heads of the Queen Mother and Queen Elizabeth. 

Middleton's diamond earrings ,by Robinson Pelham, were gifted by her parents 

 Carole and Michael, as a personal gift for her wedding day.

The handsome couple, or should I say...
Prince William and Princess Catherine, or
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge

All Hail Victoria Beckham

I am honestly almost more excited to see what Mrs. David Beckham is wearing then the bride herself...calm down I said almost.  Posh will forever remain one of my fashion faves and with the launch of her latest clothing line, Victoria is capturing a polished, modern look for the bold woman of the world. Victoria doesn't look so bad herself, just as gorgeous as ever. Love you Becks! Can't wait for you wardrobe choice for tomorrow! Maybe one of her own designs? Fascinator?  . . . we shall see.

Simple, CHIC yet bold!
Some Original Victoria Beckham designs are below
One thing I love is that you can honestly see Becks herself wear every item in her collection.

Tomorrow is the BIG day. No more waiting! See you bright and early at 4am belles!

Royal && Regal

So Prince Harry, has yet to ask me to attend the royal wedding with him.  He is playing hard to get, but that does not stop my imagination from escaping me.

I can see it now, Marchesa cocktail dress adorned with matching fascinator and white gloves, wishful thinking maybe, but here are just some of the royal accessories and looks that are royal inspired and regal for any real woman. 

Think simplistic! Simple sheaths in gem or bright tones, with a fitted blazer is the quickest way to look royally polished.  Although they maybe princesses, Duchesses or what have you they keep jewelry simple and classic with pearl and diamond studs, pendants, etc. Where the fun comes in is with both fascinators and hats, go wild here, the louder the hat the better. When it comes to accessories a matching clutch and shoes are a must.  Now I myself am NOT a very matchy matchy person, but when it comes to royal attire let me tell you those women like to match the hell out of an outfit.  Catherine herself is usually found in head to toe one color. Remember have fun and remember you can be regal like to royals anytime you choose!

Don't they just look smashing!

Some other great fascinator moments are below:

Finally I just want to predict the designer of Ms. Middleton's wedding gown. I believe with the combination of the passing of the great English designer Alexander McQueen, and the innovative success of the McQueen house, it is the clear choice as the dress maker. Sarah Burton is a genius gown designer (as seen below) and she, is undoubtedly, fit for the job. 

Well, we shall see...

Since it looks like I will NOT be attending, I will be viewing the wedding like all the other commoners of the world on tv bright and early! But I will not be without royal attire. This is my wedding day outfit!
