After all there is something about a wedding-gown prettier than any other gown in the world. – Donald William Jerold
I love weddings! I cry at them I think because of the hard work and effort it takes to plan it and us women pull it off so effortlessly. Picking the right dress I think is so hard for a woman but an impeccable designer can make it all worth the trouble. The first designer that pops in my mind is none other than the charming Vera Wang. Her wedding line is so Glam to say the least.

Her line is sold at David’s Bridal and is not too overpriced. These dresses are just the tip of the iceberg! Check out her line at verawang.com! What are you all’s opinion on the wedding gown designers? Best? Worst?
I don’t know who invented high heels, but all woman owe him a lot.-Marilyn Monroe

Well, Marilyn (RIP) with all her beauty didn’t have time to do her homework; but I did. High heels are dated way back to 4000 BC. The most talked about high heel was at the wedding of Italian born Catherine de Medici to the Duke of Orleans in France. However, the talented Leonardo da Vinci is rumored to have invented the high heel. Here are a few of my favorite heels starting out with the Dior sandal at the top which you can get at www.dior.com. I love the Gucci sandal because of the sexy chain which you can go to www.gucci.com of course and purchase it.

Now, I promised an affordable shoe that’s Beyond and affordable too so I was rummaging around and found this shoe which is the perfectly named “Cat” shoe…Meoooow! It’s the neutral shoe shown at the top and the bottom. This shoe would drive any outfit up to the next level! It’s by our favorite fashionable blonde Jessica Simpson and it can be bought at www.jessicasimpson.com for $110.00.
Now I had to throw up these Manolo Blahniks’ just because…dreams do come true LOL! I love the aqua stones and the shimmer gold just makes it pop even more. You can find it under new arrivals at www.neimanmarcus.com. Now ladies and gentleman what do you think makes up a good high heel!? Happy shoe shopping!!
“It’s all a game with new rules every season.”-Stefanno Gabbana
It’s an accessory type of Friday if you ask me; so I wanted to over-do it a little. I was recently reading up on these two fashionable fellers Stefanno and Domenico in a Bazaar magazine and they have inspired me to write about their clothing line for spring/summer 2012. So, Stefanno Gabbana and Domenico Dolce have been designing from Italy since 1982 where they met at a mutual fashion house.
They started out with a leotard line and now it has spiralled into a monstrous fashion house that brought in over 600 million dollars in 2003 alone. They state that the Italian feast encouraged this line with fruits and veggies appearing in a lot of the material. This line is Everything (the website will take your breath away) so let’s see some of my faves…

Hey, I’m Shannon and Happy Thursday!! Mother’s Day is nearing and I know all our hard-working mom’s deserve a good gesture of appreciation. On Mother’s Day it’s all about purchasing gifts that show your mom how much you appreciate her hard work and dedication. You want her to RELAX and look and feel her best. The one product that came to my mind was Carol’s Daughter‘s at https://www.carolsdaughter.com/. One of the best seller’s are Jada’s Dynamic Duo $32 which is a moisturizer for the hair that prevents breakage and dry scalp. (Okay this is on my wish list.)
Carol’s Daughter has so many products that our mom’s would really appreciate. Check her out! The beautiful Cassie and Jada Pinkett Smith are one of the many spokeswomen for this innovative line and what a pick. Not only do they have amazing hair; their skin is FLAWLESS. My fashion accessory pick of the day is this eye-catching python Chanel bag which is BEYOND and would compliment any formal event..this bag can be purchased at http://www.chanel.com/. Happy Mother’s day shopping everyone!!! XOXOXOXO
