Kate Middleton---The Dress

So let me first start out by saying that I cannot believe I woke up at 4am today! I'm most certainly NOT a morning person...but there was no way I was going to miss seeing the royal wedding live. I would have actually wrote this post sooner...but I was still in my half-zombie state for quite some time. Thank goodness my four cups of coffee are starting to kick in!

For months everyone was predicting what Kate's dress may or may not look like, as well as who the designer would be. Also in question was how her hair would be worn, and if should would wear a tiara. This morning all of our questions were finally answered.

Kate's dress was absolutely lovely. She wore a gown designed by Sarah Burton of Alexander McQueen. Word is that Kate herself had a heavy hand in designing the stunning gown. What many are comparing this dress to is the wedding dress worn by Grace Kelly. Many have been thinking she would go this route for some time now, noting that Kate's sense of style is just as ladylike and classic as the late Princess Grace's.

As you can see Kate wore her hair down. I have to admit, I was really hoping she would. I love her hair! And the fact that she typically wears it down I feel that if she wore it up she wouldn't look quite like herself.

What did you think of Kate's wedding day look??? Did you love it as much as I did? Or did you feel that she would have looked better in a different style dress? Please share your thoughts!

A quick update---
I just wanted to put a photo up of Kate's second dress that she wore for her reception. I think she looks absolutely lovely in it. If she doesn't look like a princess, I don't know who does! Which dress do you prefer??? Kate's first or second dress?

Happy Easter!

I just wanted to take a moment and wish all of my readers a very happy Easter. I spent the day at my parents' house where my brother's family joined us. We had a great meal, and wonderful weather (until we went to leave...then the rain started).

Did you have a good Easter? Wear any cute Easter dresses? I decided to wear a new tulle rose hair accessory I made. I have been seeing these things pop up all over the place lately...and with the royal wedding coming up this week it really has me thinking about funky hair accessories. I wanted to try my hand at making one myself, and I gotta say, I think it came out pretty good!

Want one? Well, I do have some good news for you. I'm actually going to start making more of them in other colors, designs, and clips...and I'll be selling them on my new Etsy site! The site, Delightful Di-Di from Snapshot Fashion, will probably be open this week. I'll be sure to let all of my readers know when it is open for business!

Vote For Style

We all know about the LBD (little black dress). With countless styles, everyone looks amazing in it, and it is always appropiate for just about any occassion. In the summer months we are also very familiar with the LWD (little white dress). The LWD makes you stand out in the crowd while still looking chic.

Well, now it is time for the LBD and LWD to step aside. There is a new dress in town...the new LBD. This is the little BOLD dress. It has been turning up on the red carpet lately...and I have to say, it puts the little black and white dress to shame.

Here Olivia Munn and Rihanna show off this great new trend. Snapshot Fashion wants to know which dress is your favorite. Please vote below!

Spring Color Combos

Navy and cream are a classic color combination that always looks so very stylish. This color combo is huge this season. Look at any red carpet event and you'll see celebrities draped in navy and cream. Wear it in stripes, dots, prints, or color block matter how you wear it, you'll look stunning. 

How do you plan on wearing this great color combo???

Dress Like A Celebrity

It's no secret...I am a huge fan of Drew Barrymore. Her style, confidence, and her!!! Here she manages to make a simple rock-n-roll inspired outfit look super chic. Snapshot Fashion has put together a very affordable version of this look which she recently wore to The Beauty Detox Solution's book launch.

What I want to know is what do you think of Drew's recent hair color change. Personally, I love her with this red hue! Fun and vibrant, just like Drew.

Dress Like A Celebrity

Okay, I know everyone knows my love for Mandy Moore. I do not keep that a secret. For those of you that do not know...yes, I do love her singing...yes, I do love her acting...and yes, I do love her sense of style! Here is a recent photo of Mandy out at an event in Los Angeles.

I love this simple look on her. It's so chic and all the pieces can really be worn a zillion other ways, so you get a bang for your buck! Here is a wallet friendly version of Mandy's outfit---

What do you think of Mandy's outfit? How does Snapshot Fashion's version stack up against Mandy Moore's?

Is That Bacon I Smell?

Okay single ladies, I just came across a fragrance that is sure to get you a man. One word---bacon. Okay, maybe I should explain a little more. Fargginay has come with two fragrances, both for men and women, that has notes of bacon in them. They are called Bacōn (pronounced bay-cone) and come in Bacōn Classic and Bacōn Gold. Bacōn Classic is said to have a spicey maple aroma, and Bacōn Gold is best described as a sizzling citrus. They both sell for $36.

Now please take note...I have NEVER smelled these. But I would be completely lying if I said I wasn't the least bit curious...because I am! I mean, anything that smells like bacon has to be good, right???

What do you think? Would you ever wear a scent that smells like your favorite pork product? Would you like your guy to wear this? I'd love to hear your thoughts.  :-)


Spring Color Combos

Spring always makes me want to swap out all of my black clothing (which is the majority of my wardrobe) for lighter and brighter hues. One color combination that I love for spring is purple and mint. I think it makes any outfit so much more young and fun.

What do you think of this color combo? Are you planning to try purple and mint this season? If so, how do you plan on wearing it?

Links à la Mode

I'm so excited to be included in IFB's Links à la Mode this week. It's a great bunch of check them out!!!

It's Not All About the Clothes
Edited by Meghan Donovan at WIT & Whimsy

If you're a fashion blogger, you know that personal style is often not just about what apparel you put on each day, but it's about accessories and shoes and beauty, but even more so, it's about the little elements in every day life that inspire you and influence your taste. As fashion blogging continues to evolve I've watched more and more bloggers share little intimate looks into their every day lives, the moments that fill their weekends with joy and those unexpected experiences – as trivial as they may be sometimes – that have you taking to the keyboard and storytelling to your readers.

Would You Wear This?

Recently socialite Olivia Palermo showed up at a screening of Henry's Crime wearing this Giambattista Valli dress. All I have to say about it are these three words: I HATE IT! The part of the dress that bothers me most is the midsection. It just seems to be making Olivia (who is so teeny tiny) look way larger than she is. What do you think of this look? Would you wear this dress???

*Great Deal*

This past weekend I did some shopping for professional clothing. I was very pleased to see that Banana Republic was having a huge sale. They were taking an extra 25% off of all sale items. I came across this adorable Striped Ruffle Shirt. It was originally priced at $69....but I got it for $12.74! I purchased it in blue...they didn't have my size in the pink, else I would have bought that one as well.

This particular shirt was not marked down that far online. Sometimes this happens. Either the store item is more than the online item...or the online item is more than the store item. It's always good to have an idea of the price of both so you don't end up wasting your money!
