Friday Fashion Roundup!

I absolutely adore Fridays. There’s a particular excitement in the air which tends to envelop everyone in it’s vicinity. Perhaps it’s the weekend which follows or something entirely different. Either way, Fridays are definitely my favorite day or the week. One reason for this unadulterated love is primarily the fact we get to see what everyone wore throughout the week, and choose which of individual pulled it off correctly. This week was no different.

In fact, it was magnificent!

When it came to couture, these celebrities pulled it off beautifully. Whether it was Zoe Saldana in Lanvin or Elle Fanning in Christopher Kane; it’s becoming apparent that celebrities are becoming quite good at donning designer duds. As if anyone was skeptical to begin with.

Why Taylor Swift is Swiftly Becoming a Street Style Icon!

Remember when Taylor Swift use to show up at award shows donning some sparkly, princess-inspired creation, and her street style consisted mainly of beanies, checkered blouses and vintage-inspired summer dresses? Flash forward to the present and it appears that the country songbird has ditched the good girl sparkle and upgraded to a sexier alternative. If you’ve been paying attention, which I have, then you would have noticed the street style pics of Taylor strutting around NYC in some of the chicest ensembles to date. Her red carpet style has altered as well. Lately when we see Taylor at award shows, the glitter and tulle has vanished.

In it’s place are designs which can only be described as chic and sophisticated. Although I adore Ms. Swift, (these days you can find me reciting every lyric from her latest album, RED), she has never been on my list of favorite celebrity fashionistas. But somewhere within the past two years, that seems to have altered. Now, when I scroll down the list of my favorite celebrity style icons, Taylor’s name is smack dab in the middle of Jane Birkin and Alexa Chung. Whether it’s to promote her new album, (which is rumored to be released this November), or the fact she’s been hanging out with models Karlie Kloss and Carla Delevingne on a daily basis. I’m not entirely sure.

Either way, it’s a phase of Taylor’s I can definitely get use to!

The Olsens and One Wedding Dress

The Olsens and One Weddings Dress

I’ve never been the kind of girl who daydreamed about her wedding day. I’ve never pictured where the wedding would take place.  I
never imagined which assortment of flowers would be present during the ceremony. And I never wondered which type of dress I’d wear. Truth be told, I’ve only been to one wedding throughout my twenty-three years on this earth and it wasn’t entirely memorable.

I was seven and I could barely stay still throughout the whole ceremony.

Flash forward sixteen years later, and I’m still as uninterested in weddings as I was when I was seven.You would think a girl who enjoys fashion and decor, would be thrilled at the idea. But that’s not the case. It’s not that I don’t believe in marriage. I like marriage. I’m all for it.

I’m just not a fan of the prolonged process in which it takes to actually become lifelong partners. But if there was ever a ceremony which could make remotely interested in the traditional ritual, it’s the one Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen played a hand in. The particular occasion in which I speak of, is none other than Molly Fishkin and Asher Levin’s wedding ceremony; which The Olsens helped plan. The entire event took place in a beautiful L.A mansion and played out like a Californian fairy-tale.

But the main attraction of the ceremony wasn’t the flower arrangement, (although they were gorgeous), or the location. It was the dress. If you’re anything like me, than the idea of a huge, cupcake-inspired wedding dress is simply irritating. Luckily, those descriptions were nowhere in sight when it came to describing the dress Fishkin chose. The words “European Bohemian” come to mind. The dress, which was designed solely for Fishkin by The Olsens; was a creation of pure talent. Something Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen have in spades. The entire dress was crafted from traditional white lace which included a sheer, long sleeves and a matching veil.

The coolest part of all was the fact that there appeared to be no bridesmaid dresses visible.  The entire ceremony was unconventional and seemed to work perfectly. If this is somehow the new form of weddings, perhaps it’s time I start getting interested.
