While traveling through Paris (Which I will cover shortly), I cannot help but focus more on fashion then anything else and since this is fashion week in NYC, I decided to share my favorites from Christian Siriano Spring 2013 collection from here:

I needed to shift gears for a minute since we are in the middle of fashion week in New York. I cannot help but be completely inspired by the Spring 2013 collection which I have seen here.
Here are some of my favorites from designer Zac Posen Spring 2013 collection
Tic toc, tic toc is the best I could jot down to express the number of hours and day remaining to the wedding of the century (at least from where I am sitting:) ). And of course I don’t need to tell anyone, weddings are probably the most stressful thing to experience (I am still trying to figure out why that is)
While we plow through the to-do list, I can’t help but go over the details in my head over and over and over again just to make sure we don’t forget anything. Being a wedding planner is a b**** (oops did I say that out loud).
Anyway, through photos, I can give a glimps of what goes through my head, even while I am writing this blog entry.

It is officially “the wedding season” and with it, the collection of beautiful pastel colored bridal party gowns are finally making their way, slowly but surely into the traditional department stores and boutiques (online doesn’t count in this case) and although there are many beautiful colors on display, I can honestly say various shades of pinks and lavender from here are my favorites:

I have to admit, although I love color, I cannot get enough of black when it comes to fashion. I should have worked for Chanel . With that said, I am in a desperate search for a cocktail dress for a party I am hosting.
Although, I have been asked to wear a long gown, I cannot help admire some of the little black cocktail dresses which I have found here.
Which one do you like? Guess which one I liked? I will reveal my choice tomorrow

Valentine’s Day, of course, is around the corner and here are some of my favorite fun or sexy dresses to wear from here for the occasion.
As I thumb through wedding catalogs for ideas to help a very special bride-to-be in my life organize her wedding, I can’t help but gear my vision towards some meaningful wedding details.

Happy Royal Wedding Day to all my British friends and loyal U.K. blog followers!!! Enjoy the day off. We can only hope to have such a day here in the states.
In light of the event and knowing not so many people will turn to their favorite blogs today, I have decided to pay homage to my favorite exhibition of royalty at the Legion of Honor in San Francisco. Pulp Fashion by Isabelle de Borchgrave, running through 5th of June 2011.
“Pulp Fashion draws on several themes and presents quintessential examples in the history of costume—from Renaissance finery of the Medici family and gowns worn by Elizabeth I and Marie-Antoinette to the creations of the grand couturiers Frederick Worth, Paul Poiret, Christian Dior, and Coco Chanel. Special attention is given to the creations and studio of Mariano Fortuny, the eccentric early-20th-century artist who is both a major source of inspiration to de Borchgrave and a kindred spirit.” (Legion of Honor site)
It is a must see in my opinion and a good idea for those taking the day off today in light of the Royal Wedding. Happy weekend everyone!!!

As most of us Americans are programmed to finish preparing our income taxes, to turn them in by midnight the 15th of April, every year, I bet most of us don’t realize that this year we have until the 18th of April to complete them due to some observed holiday technicalities in one of our states.
Either way, the rest of the world could care less and lives their lives as if it was just another day. So for the folk outside of the states and my much appreciated readers, I have put some outfits together which I, for some reason, have incorporated into my Spring to Summer 2011 wardrobe. Hope you like.
Have a Great Weekend Everyone!!!
