This Week in Fashion

  Friday, April 29, 2011 at 8:00 AM   |    Post a Comment     Tagged:,,,,,, 
This was a very nasty week weather-wise, but I tried to ignore that when I got dressed every morning. Friday is a bit dark, but it happens, ha ha. I am so sad I wasn't able to watch the Royal Wedding as it was airing this morning, I would have had to get up at 4am. But I will hopefully watch a bit before I go to work, if not I'll watch when I get home. Nothing terribly exciting happened this week sadly...just work, sleep, watching too much tv.

I'm excited for this weekend, tomorrow I'm making French Macarons for Sunday, and Sunday we're going to my aunts for our second Easter.  I'm also going to look at BluRay players since my DVD player is dying and WB sent me all the Harry Potter movies on BluRay, haha. AND I'm going to try to find my dress/accessories for High Tea in London. I figure if I spend my whole budget at the beginning of the month on things I need it will curb my unnecessary spending because I'll have no money left ;)
Monday: Dress: Marc by Marc Jacobs (eBay) $27, Blazer: Marc by Marc Jacobs (eBay) $?, Wedges: Crown Vintage (DSW) $45
Tuesday: Dress: Calvin Klein (Marshalls) $30, Sweater: Forever 21 $11.80, Belt: Kenneth Cole Reaction (Marshalls) $7, Heels: Target $20
Wednesday: Dress: McQ by Alexander McQueen gift, Sweater: Urban Behavior hand-me-down, Sandals: Simply Vera Wang $20

Thursday: Jeans: American Eagle $0, Top: Urban Outfitters $8, Sweater: Kohl's gift, Wedges: Steve Madden (TJ Maxx) $20

Friday: Dress: Marc by Marc Jacobs (eBay) $27, Sweater: American Eagle gift, Flats: vanEli gift
I haven't actually watched the wedding yet but I had to take a look at Kate's dress! I'm SO glad she wore Alexander McQueen, she looks amazing.

UPDATE 2: Okay, I watched the highlights before leaving for work, Kate walking in, the vows and them leaving and I was able to watch the kiss(es) live! Later I'll probably skim through the whole thing since my Mom recorded it.

    The Flower Girl

  17. loved you in the red dress! And Kate looked absolutely stunning! Hope you have a great weekend. xo

  18. It seems that you going to have an amazing weekend: Macarons + second easter + too much TV = perfection for me :)

    I love the outfits, my favourites are tuesday and wednesday, but definetly you should try the hairstyle of thursday more often! I really love that simple wavy hairstyle :)

    See you!

  19. I like the Thursday look - that blue really suits you and the shape of the top is interesting.

    The best thing to do when faced with barely-controlled spending is to make lists of everything you're buying, why you're buying it and how much it costs. That way you can see your priorities!

  20. Might there be any extra French Macarons to bring into work on Monday?

  21. Your outfit on Wed is amazing. I am jealous of that dress!

    I love lace I find it so elegant so I was very plesed to see it on Kate's dress. It reminded me a bit of Grace Kelly's wedding dress.

  22. Oh god the weather has been awful here too until today so I haven't really wanted to dress nice at all!
    OMG yeah, I watched most of it live then saw the kiss in the highlights since I think there was still half an hour to an hour to go when I went to be (about 11:30 for me) and the hymns... so not exciting! lol

  23. Kate looked incredible, but Pippa's dress stole my heart!

  24. You look simple and perfect in all of the looks! :)

    You really should check the Royal wedding, it was amazing :)


  25. I loved Kate's dress. I'm glad to see sleeves are becoming more popular. I like cap sleeves and lace three-quarter length the best.

    I really like your jacket in your first look and the Steve Madden shoes. What color are they? Pink? Nude?


  26. Lovely Pictures! I am glad Kate wore Alexander McQueen too.

    Heel in Mint

  27. Those Steve Madden wedges you found for only $20 are adorable- way to go!
    I suddenly feel an overwhelming need for pink wedges that I was completely unaware of before I saw those...

  28. do you mind checking out my blog? feel free to follow me ;) or at least tell my what you are thinking about it


  29. love all of the outfits, especially the first two because they work soo well. The solid color dress and then the darker layers look great and are so practical!

    I watched the whole transmission of the wedding :)
    I was suprised there was no kiss in church. :)

    XO Charlotte

  36. oh you have the most awesome shoes collection!

    I love all of them!


  37. Hey there!
    I love that first purple dress :)
    To answer your question, a box of 6 was the cheapest set. It was 14 euros, but I think you can just get them individually for 1.60 euro each. The boxes are so pretty though, they are worth it!

  38. cute outfits! I like a lot the one with the red dress!

  39. I love your gray McQ dress

  40. i like tuesday look
