Nantucket Bound

Happy Memorial Day weekend, my loves! Do y'all (still milking the Southern drawl from last weekend's trip...tee hee) have fabulous plans for the long weekend? Husband and I are taking the boat over to Nantucket for a weekend of shopping, strolling the lovely streets, fine dining, and cheering on our friends as they race in Figawi (the kick-off-of-summer sailing regatta sponsored by Vineyard Vines). I think the preppy, nautical ad campaign of Sperry (shot on Nantucket) is just per-fect to kick off the long holiday weekend and to celebrate Fashion Friday... don't you?!

Are you drooling over all that seersucker, stripes, and red, white, and blue? Me too! Don't forget to link up with Kori and celebrate Fashion Friday!

Happy Memorial Day weekend to you, sweetie-pies!

Fashion Show Unveiling!

Today, I want to talk about three of my favorites: pink, green, and fashion! It is Pink & Green Thursday, and we are going to relive the Fashion Show I was in last week together. The charity event raised money for the new cancer research and treatment center being built, and I was honored to be involved in such a wonderful cause and to model in memory of one of my closest friend's father.

My day began with hair, make-up, and some pre-show pampering. The Luncheon & Fashion Show was held at the beautiful Kittansett Club, and the sun was shining.

The tables were set and perfectly reflected the theme, the many colors of cancer.

The pink and green program, place settings, and centerpieces were lovely.  

The vendor tables were decked with nautical, preppy pretties.

These pink and green blooms greeted guests as they arrived.  

After a lovely lunch, it was time to take the runway. I was wearing a navy Jenny Han halter dress with a stunning jeweled and ruffled neckline. The lime green pashmina provided a little coverage...

which I promptly slipped off my shoulders to properly strut and spin on the runway.

(Me in my supermodel glory... such fun!)

Strut your stuff today, ladies and let your inner supermodel shine! XOXO

Fashion Friday down SOUTH!

Bonjoir, madamoiselles! I'm jet setting to South Carolina for the weekend to visit a college bestie and I could not be more excited. My bikinis and my Lilly is packed... bring on the sun, girlie gossip, plantation tours, shopping sprees, dining, and dancing! Today's looks for Fashion Friday are appropriately the fabulously glam swim looks from Bluefly's email campaign. Have y'all seen these lovelies? 

Play along too, pretty please - Kori is the sweetest hostess and would adore to have you!

PS - Thank you to the lovely ladies who wished me luck in the fashion show yesterday... I had SUCH fun, and I promise to share photos and details next week!

Smooches, y'all! (When in SC, I have a Southern accent... tee hee.)

I'm Gonna be a Supermodel!

The fashion show has arrived, and I'm busy prepping! (On my way to hair and make-up soon... hooray!) The event is a charity luncheon and fashion show at the country club to raise money for the new cancer research and treatment center being built... fashion and a good cause. I will be modeling a cocktail dress and swimwear... I pinky promise to take tons of pictures to share with you ladies!

The event invitation is just PERFECT for Trishy's Pink & Green Thursday, oui? 

I have been super-busy this week and I apologize for the lack of commenting... I cannot wait to visit all of your blogs and catch up with you!

Keep your fingers crossed for me that I'm not "fashion roadkill" a la Carrie Bradshaw! XOXO

You know you love me...XOXO

I'm fairly certain I have discussed my Gossip Girl obsession with all of you. So, you may be surprised that I was not glued to my TV on Monday for the season finale, but I was awaiting this night for a slightly different reason. You see, I had fallen behind on my weekly indulgence and would not allow myself to watch current episodes until I was completely caught up. After many marathons with the dvd sets of Season 1, 2, and 3, I was totally up to speed in the lives of Chuck and Blair, but I had missed the beginning of Season 4. (Read: I have to wait until Season 4 is completely over, buy the dvds - release date still pending, and begin another marathon session. I may totally pre-order it online now... I need a Blair Waldorf fashion fix immediately!)

For Semi-Wordless Wednesday with sweetie-pie Daphne, let's swoon over some of the gorgeous looks brought to us by the show we so adore.

Oh, Blair... can I pretty please have your entire closet??? Le sigh.

You know you love me... XOXO, Gossip Girl
