QC Prêt-à-Porter || Guest of the Bride

A weekend to celebrate love:

J.Crew Origami pleated wool-crepe dress
Roberto Cavalli Alligator gold-plated Swarovski crystal cuff
J.Crew Daisylace Minaudiere
Kate Spade New York Stoney heels
The Row Oversized cat eye acetate sunglasses
My Go-To Red Lip: NARS Velvet Matte lip pencil in Cruella
…and copious amounts of bubbly!

This weekend finds me in Los Angeles for a good friend’s wedding and so I have thrown together a somewhat midcentury modern, Betty Draper-inspired, emerald-infused party outfit featuring a rather dazzling alligator cuff — yes, I realize it completely breaks the bank, but it was so good I had to include it!  The neckline on this dress is fantastic, and demands a bare canvas — no necklaces or chandelier earrings, please.  Top it off with an updo, a precise cat eye and a crimson lip and you’re ready for cocktails with Don.

Other activities will include a bit of auntie duty, catching up with some west coast friends and relearning how to parallel park with my super sweet rental car.  If you have any recommendations for me, please do pass them along!  Since moving to New York five years ago, my Angeleno intel on what to do and where to go has probably grown a bit rusty.

Have a lovely weekend!
What will you be getting up to?

xoxo. M.

Sidenote:  You may have noticed I was a bit quieter than usual this weekend — not because I lacked anything to say, definitely — but more likely because of my awesomely full weekend hiking and camping, I felt a bit less inclined to sit in front of my computer for the next few days.  Add to that the preparations for trip I am currently on, the strategy sessions with Lani for Fashion Week, and the general realization that summer is coming to a close, it felt like a good time to take a step back from my usual routine and I am happy to say that I am really enjoying myself.  Regular posting will resume when I return to the city.  I’ve got tons to dish about and Fashion Week is going to be a blast!

Love, Parisian Style

24/05/2012 § 2 Comments

I don’t know this lovely couple personally, but I do know the groom is one half of the duo behind Rogue Territory, an excellent Los Angeles-based handmade denim goods company.  Nor do I personally know the photographer who shot this, but I do know he is the exceptionally talented Duncan Wolfe.  What else do I know?  That this film is perfect and beautiful and that I was left speechless after viewing it…and wanting to hop the next flight to CDG.  And while I don’t generally talk about weddings and such on here, I had to share.  It’s that good.

Congrats K & L.
May your life together be as filled with love and beauty
as these 4 minutes and 29 seconds are.

Many thanks to Ryan for the tip.

Let Them Eat Cake

Found at Vintage Seekers: a small box containing a piece of cake from the royal wedding of Wallis and Edward Windsor on June 3rd, 1937 at the Chateau de Candé in Touraine, France.  Only £1,500.00.  Available here, if you were so inclined.
