Bird Is The Word

Hi, it’s me, still obsessing over all things Kate Middleton. While I would love to fill my closet with every dress she wore on her tour through the US, I’ll settle for some inspirational (and affordable) pieces here and there. I love the Issa Bird dress she’s wearing in the photo above, it’s a piece she has been photographed in numerous times, so you can imagine how I totally freaked out when I spotted this fantastic bird print top at Target.

I may or may not have elbowed a little old lady out of the way to get a closer look and grab my size. Oh, and while you can’t tell in this blown out cellphone picture, I’m also totally digging my (finally sized down) Rose Gold colored Fossil watch I got for Christmas. It’s a little bit masculine, and a lotta bit awesome. Not sure you’d find it in the crown jewels vault, but I think Kate would definitely approve.

PS: Thanks to the birds, I totally have Forest Gump in my head today — make me a bird so I can fly far far away from here.

Royal Wedding: First Pictures of “THE DRESS”

Check out the UK’s “The Sun” (Link Below) for the most comprehensive photo album I’ve seen posted as of yet on the Royal Wedding. Can I totally admit that I completely forgot about the time difference and didn’t realize when I woke up this morning that I’d find these photos on the internet already!? Happy Friday indeed!

Kate looks incredible of course. I love simplicity of her dress, her jewelry and her bouquet. Stunning!

More the “The Sun”:  The couple pledged their love for one another before the 1,900-strong congregation and a TV audience estimated at TWO BILLION.

Looking beautiful, but visibly nervous, softly-spoken Kate could barely be heard reading her vows. And there was a nerve-wracking fumble as Wills struggled to get the ring on her finger.

Before the ceremony started, while the hymn Great Redeemer was being sung, he was seen mouthing to his bride-to-be: “You look beautiful, I love you.”

Shut the Front Door

The Royal Wedding is in T-minus 2 days, and prep for the biggest, baddest watch party this side of the pond is well underway. Exhibit A above. Yes, Pam101 made a Royal Wedding Wreath for her front door. Talk about going all out! To see what else this hostess-with-the-mostess has been up to, check out her blog here.  Lets just say Royal Wedding inspired Georgetown Cupcakes have been ordered.

Guess What Week It Is?!

Royal Wedding week! It’s no secret that I’m totally smitten by the whole Royal Wedding, and this Friday is THE DAY. I’m most excited to see “the dress” that Kate will be wearing, and for Pam101’s Royal Wedding Watch Party – um, yeah, of course she’s having one! Unfortunately, since the wedding is happening during the day when most normal American citizens will be working, we’ll be DVRing the whole shebang and watching it later that evening. Not gonna lie though, I’ll totally be stalking the internet for the first photos of the dress because there’s no way I can go all day without sneaking a peak!

Real life princes & princesses, castles, palaces, horses, carriages, jewels — what’s not to love about a real life, honest to goodness fairytale???

PS: Thanks Jackie and Pam101 for my “Inside the Royal Wedding” magazines! Joey officially thinks I’m a big fat loser, but what does he know?! 😉

Royal Wedding Alert (Cue the Trumpets)

Get your bookmark bar ready, Kate & Will have a new wedding website. I need this like I need a hole in the head.  Alas, my new guilty pleasure!!!

LONDON (AP) – They’ve got the carriage, the abbey, and a national holiday in their honor. Now Prince William’s marriage with Kate Middleton is getting what every young engaged couple really needs – a wedding website.

Tech-savvy couples the world over set up websites to feature their nuptials. Such sites give guests a handy way to get directions, browse photos, buy gifts, or even choose the music. Although Internet users aren’t likely to get much say in the royal reception’s playlist, fans will find photos, updates, videos and more on http://www.officialroyalwedding2011.org, a site that Prince William’s office, St. James’ Palace, says may be used to livestream the event itself.

On Wednesday much of the site seemed to consist of content from the royals’ existing social media ventures, such as Buckingham Palace’s Flickr account, Clarence House’s Twitter page, the Royal Channel on YouTube and the British monarchy’s Facebook site.

But officials are promising exclusive content about the wedding, including that most coveted detail of all _ details about Middleton’s gown when they are made public.

Royal Wedding Invite: Please Mr. Postman

Ok, I think playing this video while you read the rest of the post really gives it the full effect, so shut the office door and turn the speakers up…

Now that we’re in the spirit, lets talk about some Royal Wedding. If you haven’t already heard, the invites to the most exclusive wedding on the year/decade – the wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton in case you weren’t sure – were put in the mail last week and I’m anxiously awaiting the arrival of mine. Yeah…right.

The coveted invite!

But lets talk about the guest list. The invite went out to 1,900 people!!! I don’t even think I could name 1,900 people if I tried.  The lucky ones include other royals of course, close family and friends of the couple, old schoolmates and other hot shot global leaders (sorry Obamas, you weren’t invited either. Makes me feel a little better.)

Only 600 of the 1,900 guests were also invited by the Queen to a reception immediately after the ceremony in Westminster Abbey. 
 And then around 300 of those 600 are invited to a 
dinner hosted by Prince Charles that evening at Buckingham Palace. I’m glad they were able to get that down to a reasonable number – I’m sure the chefs at Buckingham appreciate it.

Lets be honest though, while the wedding invite is all fine and grand,  all we really care about is what Kate’s going to be wearing! For that we’ll have to anxiously wait until April 29. The wedding is at 11a.m. which I’ve come to realize sucks because it’s a Friday and I’ll be at work. But thanks to the powers of my DVR, I’ll be able to have my cake and eat it too.
