After watching the Emmy’s a couple of weeks ago, I have to say I wasn’t particularly wowed by many of the gowns on the red carpet. There was one however, that made me swoon; Julianna Margulies in Giambattista Valli haute couture! While brocade fabric is certainly nothing new, it looked so fresh and unexpected!

Wedding season is upon us, gals and its time to do it up right! I’ve read so many articles lately about what to wear to this kind of wedding or that kind of wedding. While that’s all well and good, and there are certainly some guidelines that should be upheld when selecting proper wedding attire, I had yet to see any vintage style dresses assembled for the nuptial occasion! So, I did a little digging and hand selected some great pics for all of you ladies out there with a mailbox full of wedding invitations and nothing to wear! All of these dresses are under $100.00 and unlike that Pepto-Bismol pink bridesmaids dress you have shoved in the back of your closet, these frocks can be worn again and again.
Wednesday night I was invited to the “Inside Generation Style” fashion show at the Metropolitan pavilion!
The event was sponsored by IFB (Independent Fashion Bloggers) and Intel. What made the show unique was that instead of professional models, the show featured fashion bloggers strutting their stuff down the runway!
I liked that they chose different types of real gals to model for this function, including plus-size. The clothes were all from Norma Kamali’s Kamali Kulture collection with handbags by Orla Kiely and jewelry by Baublebar. The hair was done by Arrojo Studio, which made me smile because I used to love watching Mr. Arrojo himself when he was on TLC’s “What Not To Wear”!
I have to admit, I felt a bit intimidated as I did not know anyone at the event and I went solo, but I met some very nice people and had a great time!
Looking forward to attending more of IFB’s future events 🙂
