PRETTY! Brooke Davis’ Wedding Dress and Hair

Wednesday, February 2nd, 2011

brooke davis wedding dress

It’s kind of a coincidence, but right now I’m listening to the Glee cover of “Marry You.” This is a post about One Tree Hill (not a show I watch) for Brooke Davis’ wedding dress and the Brooke Davis wedding hair. Much as I don’t appreciate the show, I do appreciate fashion when it’s good – anywhere!

On the show, Brooke Davis married Julian Baker. They are a real life couple, and Sophia Bush actually helped design her characters wedding dress.

What do you think of it? The style of gown is a strapless tulle and lace mermaid wedding dress. It’s by BCBG Max Azaria. A crystal brooch accents her waist.

There’s a nice belt action going on. It’s strapless, of course. She’s got a veil, a jeweled headpiece, (two crystal headbands) and drop earrings.  For her wedding day hair she has a simple knotted or braided bun, but the headbands and veil dress this up for the special occasion.

The white dress has lots of ruffles and her bouquet has white flowers that look like white roses and white orchids. Maybe dogwood blossoms? I’m not sure, I’m not a flower guru. ... Read More

    Savvy Fitness: Easy Yoga DVD (Netflix Instant Watch Suggestions)

    Wednesday, January 12th, 2011

    easy yoga dvd

    Hello everyone, it’s Rachel here. You guys know I’m the new plus size blogger. Something I haven’t talked about yet is the “F” word. Fitness. It’s something I try to make a part of my life more than I avoid it. I discovered that Netflix Watch Instantly had a yoga video, and gave it a try without any expectations. I’m by no means a yoga expert, so I stick to very easy yoga. This video, as it happens, was extremely easy and low impact, something perfect for beginners. If they remove it from Netflix Instant, I’ll might actually buy it because the Amazon.com price is very low.

    The video is “Crunch- Candlelight Yoga” with Sara Ivanhoe.Isn’t it nice that Netflix offers that? I have done the routine twice and even though I would classify the video as very easy, I still felt a sense of energy and warmth afterwards. There are some reviews on Amazon (linked above) which also speak of this feeling.

    As a beginner, I felt attracted to how sincerely nonjudgmental the host, Sara, was. I was able to keep up with the moves, and this furthered my sense of accomplishment. And because I like it so much, I’ ... Read More

    Emily Blunt’s WILD TARGET Clothes

    Wednesday, December 22nd, 2010

    emily blunt wild target clothes

    After someone linked me to the YouTube Trailer for the movie “Wild Target” I took right to the clothes that Emily Blunt‘s character wears in the movie. Words to describe her style aesthetic would include: bright, cheeky, strong, eclectic and fun.

    I’m interrupting our She’s Smart hiatus to show you these inspirational photos. The outfits tend to mix a busy print (or two) with a strong solid from a primary color. She wears a lot of strong red, blue and yellow. There are elements of style in bows (on the gloves), layered pearls, fringe, draped scarves, berets, black tights, cuff bracelets, studded jackets, and handmade-looking jewelry.

    The costume designer for “Wild Target” was Sheena Napier who has worked on many UK based films and TV series like “EastEnders” and the “Miss Marple” mini-series movies.

    InStyle pointed out that in one scene the character (photo above) wears a Vivienne Westwood dress and Yaffa Meskell necklace.You can also spot some blue eyeliner that is very funky and fun.

    Cool Gadgets for Women 2011: Mp3 Shower Speakers Still Need Tweaks

    cool gadgets for women 2011

    I spotted a cool add for mp3 shower speakers in a Bed Bath & Beyond ad. I thought this would be AWESOME, and exactly what I was searching for (although I had a pang of guilt, because I don’t want to waste water and take longer showers than I should – I am so conflicted!)

    In a quick and desperate attempt to see which model might be the best, I googled away like the pro I am. And what I discovered is that while there are a few options out there, that hopefully 2011 will bring us options that people can give positive reviews to!

    Vampire Diaries Style Guide for Bonnie Bennett

    Friday, December 3rd, 2010

    bonnie bennett style

    On The Vampire Diaries, Katerina Graham plays Bonnie Bennett, a burgeoning witch. The TVD costume designer has referred to Bonnnie’s style as that of a modern flower child, citing that Free People is a great label when looking for clothing for that character. Well, as a boho luxe enthusiast, I was flipping through a Free People Catalog that I’d kept for inspiration and decided to do a spotlight on some items that are in stores right now that would fit Bonnie’s style excellently. So, if you have Bennett style ambitions, this would be a good – nay – great place to start.

    Here’s Bonnie in the Free People Run Free Flare Dress. ... Read More

    Vampire Diaries Elena’s Miss Mystic Falls Dress

    Wednesday, November 24th, 2010

    elena's dress in miss mystic falls

    Love The Vampire Diaries dress that Elena wears for Miss Mystic Falls? You are SO not alone. (Love Damon? You’re also not alone in that!)

    My pick for a replica of this dress is this: Long Sweetheart Fit Long Blue Evening Gown by Liz Fields

    Elena's dress in Vampire Diaries wasn't my favorite when you compare it to Caroline's Dress for Miss Mystic Falls. What about you?

    Why? While this is a strapless blue evening dress, and Elena’s dress in Vampire Diaries had a halter dress, most blue halter dresses have all sorts of stupid rhinestones on them that look tacky. Elena’s hair covered the halter straps in the front, giving you the same simple sweetheart neckline look with both of these dr ... Read More
