The 1st official photos were released today from the White House of our very own First Lady, Michelle Obama… and simply put, she looks fabulous!!! Michelle is wearing a version one of the looks from the Spring 08 Runway Show of American fashion designer Michael Kors and a simple double strand of purls. Simple. Stunning. Sophisticated.

Look 72, Michael Kors Spring 2009

As Michael might say “its the right girl, in the right dress” (if your a Project Runway fan, then you should get the reference) Click on the picture above to see images from the entire Michael Kors Spring 2009 Runway Show.

God Bless America!

Oscar Worthy Fashion

23 Feb

First off I must say that this is the FIRST time I have watched the entire Oscars from beginning to end. Usually I start yawning within the first 5mins but not this time. I think that Hugh did an amazing job of hosting and keeping viewers like myself interested. Bravo! I espescially love all of the musical numbers that he participated in. Not to mention Penelope’s & Kate Winslet’s acceptance speechs along with the moment when Heath Ledger’s family accepted his win for “The Dark Knight”….So many great moments, but we all know the best part is really the fashion!!! Below are a few of my favs from the Red Carpet….that just so happen to coordinate so well together ๐Ÿ™‚

Enjoy!!!Penelope Cruz wearing a 60 yr old vintage Balmain dress.

Taraji P. Henson wearing Roberto Cavalli

Miley Cyrus wearing Zuhair Murhad.

Marisa Tomei in a silver-hued and beautifully pleated Versace gown.

Sarah Jessica Parker wearing Dior Haute Couture in a beautiful mint green with a blue tint.

Natalie Portman wearing a Rodarte gown in orchid pink.

Alicia Keys wearing a strapless lilic gown.

John Legend and his girlfriend Christine perfectly paired in coral and chocolate brown.

Brad & Angelina both stunning in black. Jolie wearing Elie Saab.

More to follow soon…

Queen of the Night

Now I know this weekly feature is called Sunday”Morning” Blooms… and here I am posting at 11:27pm on Sunday evening, but fear not I do have good reason. The flower you see above is a very unique flower. One which blooms only once a year, and ONLY at night. See I told you I had a valid reason for posting so late ๐Ÿ˜‰

The above flower is a bloom from a plant appropriately referred to as “Queen of the Night” or Night-blooming cereus. You see the flower that blooms only once a year does so as the temperature drops well into the evening and will only last for 6-8 hours. Joanna Pertz of Desert Queen says that “Witnessing the miraculous event of its bloom is like watching the Cinderella of the desert become the bell of the ball. But alas, dawn is “midnight” for this Cinderella, as the flower wilts and the queen of the night becomes just a plain, inconspicuous cactus for another year.”

I myself have never heard of this plant before but upon discovering it in a search was instantly intrigued. I want to own one of these plants someday so that I too can witness God’s wonderful imagination and creativity that went into the creation of the “Queen of the night”.

Sweet Dreams…

Dropped on V-day… I think not!

Today I spoke with a dear friend of mine and thought I would share with you her experience of worrying…somthing that we as women tend to do when it comes to relationships, many times, for no reason at all.

The old saying goes “he loves me, he loves me not” and I for one think that we have all been there at some point in our life. My friend, who shall remain nameless, was feeling some kind of way this past Monday, so she decided to post her feelings on Craiglist under rants & raves; mainly just to get it off her chest… Well as it turns out the very guy that she was posting about responded to her posting and when she told me what it said my heart melted completely. Can we say romantic comedy material!!!

Read below, if only for the sake of seeing both sides of a story, when the thought of “wonder” enters ones mind.


Initial Posting:
“I got dropped on Valentines and didn’t even see it coming. Yup–after a good two weeks of talking about things to do…nothing even happens. I haven’t really cried but I do feel like it. I’ve received one text message and other than that nothing. I said that this time around if things don’t work out I was going to let this dating/love/relationship crap go. So, I guess I’m letting it go. But I don’t want to…

BUT I wanted this to work out sooooo bad………I’m sad. Heartbroken, too.”

Dropped (fairfield/vacaville) 2/16/09 3:43 PM

“Dropped is such a hard thing to say, did he drop you on your head? Does this guy know how nice and sweet you are? Does this guy know how much you care and the good qualities you bring? Maybe this guy is afraid of commitment. If I can say one thing,

Happy Valentines Day,
And if this guy donโ€™t want you, You can be my Valentines girl all the time.”

“When I close my eyes I dream of you.
Can’t sleep at night ’cause I wanna be with you.
Don’t want to live, don’t want to cry
Without you by my side.

Fashion week is in full swing

Well, I have to admit… the last couple of season I have *GASP* lost interest in fashion week. I can remember a time back when I HAD to have all of the newspaper coverage everyday during fashion week, but this past year or so I just haven’t cared as much. Maybe its the fact that I now live in NYC so fashion week in it self is not so unattainable as it is when say, your living in Fairfield, Ca. But I will say, my first love was and will always be fashion. I think I’m just lying low until the season when I can actual send out invites to my very own runway show. It will happen one day and the industry wont know what hit it!
