Diamonds and A Girl’s Best Friends

Oddly enough, all of my closest friends are engaged.  And while I have always heard that diamonds are a girl’s best friend, I would trade 100 diamonds for just one best friend any day, although my BFF’s might not be so willing to give their “square cut’s” up-especially now!   In support of all five of my closest girl and guy friends currently engaged, I have decided to post an all out wedding bliss post filled with cool links, pictures, ideas, sites, and top planners in hopes of possibly answering some of their questions and maybe some of yours.  Weddings are really tough and expensive these days. (Just something I am learning)  I just don’t think it should have to be such a daunting and overwhelming task. So cheers and let’s make this a little bit more fun!

 

Location! Location! Location! It is not all about the dress when you live in L.A.!

I am finding that the biggest challenge for my friends is booking the venue. Whether it is an outdoor wedding you want or just a venue that will allow you to treat your guests to a luxurious and intimate party for under $80,000.00 – it is no easy task! So, here are some options.

All About The Details

Wedding planners can prove to be invaluable and truly “worth their weight in gold” at the end of the day. However, I must preface this by saying the right wedding planner is key- otherwise, you are better off having your special day completely unorganized and totally crazy but the way you want it, even if it is a little bit crazy! Here are a few I would recommend.

Fall is here but Fashion Springs Forward- The Trend Report For Spring 2012

Fall Is Just Arriving While Fashion Is “Spring”-ing Forward:The Trend Report

September finishes up one of the busiest weeks for fashion as the designers preview their Spring 2012 collections in Paris, Milan, New York, and London. While the rest of us are just now putting away our linen and labor day whites, and dragging out our favorite boots and sweaters, it seems crazy to even be talking about spring- but fashionistas know the drill. And I will let you know who was front and center and the major shows picking their fav runway looks for Spring.

Young blood- front and center- really young!

HCC: Hyper Chic Color

Color on Crack is no exaggeration to describe designers’ take on color for Spring 2012. Oscar De La Renta, Thakoon, Marc Jacob, Haider Ackermann, even Donna Karen can’t help but embrace electrifying blues and citrus yellows and limes. So, those of you stuck in black and white- time to break out the shades and let your inner Elton John rule your house of color!

Put on your Big Girl Pants

It is time for women of the world to take after style icon Coco Chanel and wear the pants and the high heels. Almost every designer showed high waisted cigarette pants with peplum tops or blazers in vibrant textured hues. Tailored but still very feminine.

In the Flesh

That’s right ladies, as vibrant as the colors are, we also can expect soft flesh and nude tones as well. chiffon blouses, long gowns, billowing silks all in varying sexy nudes. I predict the summer to be stifling!
