The New Shape Saver

29 Jun

Apparently designers have figured out that we don’t all look like the gorgeous waifs strutting down the runways.  In fact, many designers seem to have united in a new shape saving technique…the “slimming side panel”.  Leather, florals, bold colors, graphic prints, and sequins can be tricky for any figure.  I love how these designers have made them more wearable and flattering for those of us not in the Kate Moss gene pool.  From all of us, I would like to say a big “thank you”!  Now – if only the maternity apparel designers would get on board…

Look at Us in Lowveld Living Magazine!

28 Jun

As a small town girl from Murray, Kentucky (population = tiny) marrying a mid-western boy – I never dreamed that my wedding might one day be featured in a South African magazine.  But “Lowveld” and behold…here we are!

Below is a link to the entire magazine, although you can only view a few pages for free.  We are on page 87.

Retro Resort

28 Jun

The Mad Men season finally has come and gone – but its fashion inspiration continues to file down the runways.  Although – it is clear the muse has changed.  With Bombshell Blonde Betty Draper a bit on the porkier side this season, the new Zou Bisou Bisou Mrs. Draper, Megan, has quickly become the primary fashion icon of the show.  Is it mere coincidence, the natural recycling of fashion, or is Jessica Paré inspiring numerous collections this resort season?  Please share your thoughts.

A Bump in Beijing!

27 Jun

While I cannot yet confirm whether or not our little one will be another Blonde in Beijing – I can confirm that this bump does in fact contain a petite-pois with an ETA of November 4th!  Brett and I couldn’t be happier.  I hope that this announcement will excuse my absence from posting of late.  Between the morning sickness, exhaustion, migraines, and two transatlantic trips to the states – leaving me with two lovely and lingering cases of jet lag, my creative juices have not been flowing…to say the least.  Now that I am 21 weeks along – my energy appears to be back a bit and my appetite for living vicariously through the Resort 2013 collections is in full force – I believe that I am back to being the Blonde in Beijing.  I am just a bigger version!

Speaking of bigger…here are shots of The Bump in Beijing from week 18 to 21.  More weekly “bump” shots to come (mostly for our family’s sake!)  And for my fashion followers – you needn’t worry.  With resort just finishing and couture shows around the corner, there will be plenty!
