27 Dresses

[Jane's Closet of Bridesmaid Dresses]

As you may have read in my previous post, today I saw the new movie, 27 Dresses. I dragged my dad along, but he always picks the movie so it was my turn! I really liked it, it was cute. If you miss it in theaters, you should still order it on paperview or rent it! The movie inspired me to make a post using some of Jane's dresses as ideas for better ones. enjoy!

Jane's dress was way TOO poofy and that pink will never be a flattering color no matter how the dress is styled or who is wearing it. The beading is way over-the-top. Instead, opt for a richer, magenta minidress with a bubbled hem. Keep the detailing simple, with a little beading around the neck.

The faded purple in Jane's dress washes her out. Purple in general is a difficult color. Lapis, like in the dress shown on the right, is less obnoxious and more subtle. The silky material of the dress will reflect light and give the dress dimension.

[Theory > ]

The odd orange sherbert color of Jane's dress is the least of it's problems! It looks like a 6 year old's ballet recital costume! The mesh skirt, loose bows, and rough ribbons look sloppy. The flower decals might attract a bee! When picking out a dress with flowers on it, don't opt for ones that are 3-D! Instead, choose one with a fashion-forward bold print like the one shown on the right!

[Marc Jacobs > ]

Jane's dress has way too much poof! Don't select a dress with too much volume. Find one that just has a little bit of shape to make it interesting. The one on the right is sleek until it reaches the bottom, where it has an interesting detail to make it pop out. A volumous dress should ideally be a solid color. Stay away from poofy dresses with a pattern- that's just way too much!

That's me on the left! I was a bridesmaid for my cousin in August 2006. Our dresses actually wern't that bad. Navy bottom, ivory top, and a little ribbon that tied on the side of our waists. Try wearing navy as a solid, in a simple minidress like the one on the right. this shade of navy is more "royal blue," than the one in my dress, and will look richer.

Kirsten is such a MIUse!

Don't tell me she doesn't look freaking GORGEOUS in the new Miu Miu ad campaign. This is such a major step up from Lindsay Lohan, though I liked her. Kirsten isn't my favorite person in Hollywood, but she's started impressing me. She was incredible in Marie Antoinette and she looks like a model in these ads. Way to go Kirsten Dunst!


Okay, so my hands are constantly FREEZING, along with most of my body, so i just taught myself a new trick.

I put a dollop of handcream on my palm but didnt rub it in. Then, I put my hand over the pellet stve for a few minutes (you could do it with a wood-burning stove or fireplace as well). After the cream warmed up a bit, i rubbed it in =] yayyy
