The Star of the Show

I am an early riser.  I like getting up before the rest of the world.  It affords me a bit of peace and quiet before the chaos of the day begins.  I was especially happy this morning: the royal wedding pageantry and the suspense of seeing Kate's dress was even more reason to be up at 3am.  The wedding was predictably beautiful.  Kate was beauftiful.

Kate's sister, Pippa, stole the show.  She was absolutely breathtaking in a Sarah Burton for Alexander McQueen bias cut ivory number.  The ananlysts were saying it was satin, but I'll was a silk charmeuse shealth that was unparalled.  Alexander would've been very proud. 

The beauty of Pippa's dress did have a bit of help.  She has a flawless body.  This is the best foundation one can have to make or break the look. There is no wonder she is one of the most sought after bachlorettes in the UK.

Kate will be getting most of the press today for her lace overlay full skirt princess confection.  She should.  But, in my opinion, Pippa should be right behind her, nipping at her heels.

Let's start with Spring and Summer

I have begun blogging out of my own desire and the request by friends and contemporaries.  I am the go-to-girl for all things style.  Where do I shop? Where do I get my hair done? Where do I work out? How did I get the idea for that outfit?

You get the idea.

Today I am thinking about how glad I am to have a fantastic base of vintage jewlery to get me though the seasons to come. I am not a vintage gal in the traditional sense.  I have more than a few of good and a piece or two of great pieces handed down to me.  Today I am wearing a heavy gold bead chain that I've wrapped twice around my neck that belonged to my grandmother. (I have 2 of them..the designer is unknown) It is the anchor for my outfit of a simple pencil skirt, a Michael Kors top and Prada wedges.  The reason it is the anchor is twofold: it is truly fabulous AND it was a part of my grandma's wardrobe.

These are the small additions that change an outfit into an ensemble without much effort.  Style Sensiblity.
