I feel so Pretty and Giddy

I love pretty things, who doesn't. My first prom, my mother and I dropped a whopping $450 on a ball gown with a full skirt with tutu lace underneath and a hand beaded corset on top- a fortune in 1999 in my small, East Tennessee town. We joked we would dye it white for the big day, but knew this was only a joke to appease daddy. So after the initial bride search- it was no wonder that I was drawn to the very heavy, tulled-out, bedazzled, floralized, large bridal gowns. So in honor of unordained royalty everywhere, here are a few things that remind us we all have the means to be a modern princess.

Sherri Hill
I wish I knew these dresses existed when I was 16, however there is no reason not to dress like a garden birthday cake when cash allows.

Blair Waldorf
My absolute favorite television character. Her and Scarlett O'Hara channel similar energy, and I admire their style and spirit (even if they are both brunette.) She can really wear a headband and has a sharp tongue, here are some of her quotes to use in conversation.
  • "If you cut revenge out of the Bible, there's not even enough pages to make a pamphlet."
  • "I'm not a stop along the way. I'm a destination."
  • "The most important parties you have to attend are the ones that you are not invited to."
  • "Only a masochist could ever love such a narcissist."
  • Dorota: "Ms. Blair, you are sleeping with your chocolates! Blair: "No, Dorota, we are only friends."

Tarina Tarantina

Her story, her make-up, her hair. Support Tarina products. From her new makeup line at Sephora I purchased Eye Dream Hyper shadow in Rivit. The shadow is quality but the packaging is key. The 26 hand placed gemmed compact comes in a pink lace pouch. Every time I see it- I inwardly scream- "I love being a girl!"

These headpieces are so flamboyant and feminine. I bet Blair Waldorf and Scarlett O'Hara shop here. Sparkly, ribbons, colorful- adorn your head with some kind of crown!
