A Window into Life in the Suburbs

"Consider how the lilies grow. They do not labor or spin. Yet I tell you, not even Solomon in all his splendor was dressed like one of these." Luke 12:27 (NIV)

Chelsea Clinton's Wedding Dress

Busy, busy, busy... These things seem to come at me in threes and fours... I will not even attempt any kind of serious blogging today. I'm ready to hit the sack as soon as I deal with a few details. So now, for something fairly brain dead...

Celebs are a constant source of amusement... some for their silly antics -- things that only people with more money than sense can get up to... some just because they try so hard to be famous... some because they're rich and have the dosh to splash on meaningless, transcient items such as gowns that they will only ever wear once in their entire life.
Chelsea Clinton (daughter of former President Bill and Secretary of State Hilary Clinton) recently became Chelsea Mezvinsky had on a prettyish gown designed by designer Vera Wang. It's simple and doesn't look overdone which is annoying because well, there's not that much humour to be had at her expense.

BUT... I've been meaning to pull out my modest stash of photos from Princess Victoria of Sweden's wedding. Now, that's a goldmine. Aristocrats parading their frocks is bucketloads of fun particularly because it demonstrates that wealth is no guarantee of taste.
Ah... I love all the trappings of conspicuous consumption...

From the little that I saw on You Tube, it looked  like a lovely wedding for two people that seem to care genuinely for one another. The new Prince Consort gave, what seemed to me, to be a heartfelt speech of their courtship and romance. Of course, he could just be a really good performer.

But before we get carried away by wedding niceties... focus... girl... focus...  Remember what we're here to do. Wedding speeches... bah... when you've heard one, you've heard them all...
Everyone knows... it's the rags that matter in these big dos...

Going for the whole disco ball look. Yeah, she's so ready to boogey.

Looks like she's ready to take the bull by its horns. As long as the dress doesn't get in the way.

  1. Yikes!!! And these dresses are designed by people who ask squillions for them. I've always said it too. Money does not buy taste! Period. Full stop. The end!

  2. HA! Enjoyed seeing those pics... and the running commentary

  3. Thanks for the giggle :-) ... the blue one made me think of Alice in Wonderland (maybe after an attack by the gardening shears)!

  4. Yeah, you're right Janet... Don't know why I didn't think of Alice in Wonderland.

    Glad you had fun girls!

  5. I just loved all these dresses. Going to design something unique for my wedding dress too. Booked venues in Los Angeles for my wedding and pre wedding parties. Hope to do all arrangements in nice way so that everyone can enjoy.


Let me know what you think!
