One Week Ago......

Thursday Evening-Part II

So after the DailyCandy/Fred Segal event last Thursday evening, I went straight home to begin the Royal Wedding festivities. My boyfriend surprised me and bought me some things to have during the wedding coverage: cosmos, English shortbread biscuits, tea, English muffins, and a slice of wedding cake. He wasn’t into it at all, but I thought it was so sweet of him to pick those up for me knowing how much I was looking forward to this! I watched the Lifetime movie, William and Kate, and then watched the pre-wedding and wedding coverage. I fell asleep around 5am and later woke up and watched the post-wedding coverage. (I was extremely addicted by this point.)

I was trying to figure out why I was so fascinated. William and Kate are a charismatic, interesting couple. And Kate’s fashion choices are fun to follow. But I think what struck me was that it was like watching a real-life Disney fairytale. No, their lives aren’t perfect-but that’s the thing. They are real people with such a special, happy day in their lives. Maybe dreams can come true!

Anyways, I will never stay up all night for a TV special again! It totally threw me off and I was exhausted all week!

So back to fashion….I have loved all of Kate’s outfits surrounding the wedding—especially her “going away” dress and jacket below. Sigh......

(Side note: I got this picture from The Possessionista who also lists where Kate's dress came from...if you've never visited the site, it's a great resource to find out more information on clothes you see on TV. I frequent it to find details about items I see on The Bachelorette and Happy Endings.)
