...and the dress goes viral. I guess it doesn't hurt to have the Duchess formerly known as Kate Middleton wear one of your dresses if you would like for your line to do well.

After having had a dreamy honeymoon the nicely tanned Dutches choose to wear this bandage style dress  by Reiss Schola to meet with Barack and Michelle Obama at Buckingham Palace. Fabulous look for a first social obligation by the way.

If you would like to buy the dress (which actually is quite moderately priced for royalty) check it out on

Denim jumpsuits for summer

I love, love love denim jumpsuits and I am on the hunt for the perfect one. Unfortunately I haven't found one yet that would suit all of my expectations. The fabric needs to be light, the top has got to fit just right and it has to be easy to wear but classy. Know any such jumpsuits? Please don't hesitate to tell me about them :).

Kate Middleton in Alexander McQueen

This has got to be the most talked about wedding dress of the season and the bride wore it just perfectly!
The hand-cut English lace, the sweetheart bodice complete with a beautiful satin skirt made this Alexander McQueen gown into the perfect fit for a fairytale wedding. Timelessly elegant and understated, I have to admit it was a pleasant surprise as I had expected something much more pompous. 

The maid of honour was just as elegant but subdued enough not to overshadow her sister, the bride. Pippa's Alexander McQueen gown was a great example of simple yet flawless elegance.

Also worth mentioning is the fact that Philp Treacy's hats seemed to be very big with the royals and their wedding party as a pregnant Victoria Beckham, Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, as well as Princesses Beatrice and Eugenie were spotted wearing them. For the life of me I could never understand in what setting one would wear a Philp Treacy hat, but if there was one perfect occasion for these hats, the royal wedding must have been it!

 Congrats to the happy couple!

DIY: curl your hair with a flat iron

On my list of things to learn in an attempt to pay more attention to the way I present myself is managing to curl my hair with my relatively recently purchased flat iron. Now a straightener might not sound as the best instrument to curl ones hair to the untrained ear but as I have witness at my hairdresser its really does the trick. So I want to learn, and I try and try because it seems so easy to do, right? Well it just doesn't seem to come together for me. I have found some really helpful videos though on how to curl your hair with a straightener and until I manage to actually do it myself and post a photo of it I decided to share these with you. Enjoy! and let me now how you manage to curl your hair with a flat iron, useful tips, videos, or just good advice or bad experiences in general. Looking forward to hearing from you.
