Florida, Fun, and Fashion!

Hello readers! Sorry I haven't posted in a long time...I was in sunny Florida! We went for a week in Orlando and then stayed on beautiful Marco Island for a week. It was a glorious restful two weeks! :) Sorry I left you with no posts, but we very rarely had Wi-Fi and then only on iPhones or iPads which aren't great for blogging! Later in the week I'll have some photos from our vacation. In Orlando, we went to Disney World, and on Marco Island we went for an airboat tour! That is such a great opportunity.

As Aimee's reward, I'm doing a fashion post on Amy Adams! Sorry it's so late, Aimee!

I can't get over how beautiful this dress is on her! It's made of a sparkly sapphire blue fabric and it is perfect! She looks so wonderful with her ivory skin. The cap sleeves are adorable, and I love the cut of the dress.

Oh, wow! This stunningly vintage combination of black and white is gorgeous. The exaggerated butterfly sleeves are cute and the peplum skirt is adorable. Together, they form a wonderful outfit.

I think Amy looks good in any color she puts on...this light teal embroidered dress is very pretty and is a wonderful complement to her eyes. I love how it just barely gathers to one side at the waist.

Simple, classic, hunter green! This dress is a marvelous color on her, and I love the gold clutch and strappy sandals.


This gorgeous black and white toile dress is so amazing!! I love the black bow and the crossed neckline! The knee-length skirt is wonderful and so are the black accents on the neckline.

Blue is her color! This simple sheath dress with a sheer top is pretty. The sheer fabric should maybe not dip so low, but it is not revealing. I love how the sleeves go back to solid fabric.

This helps all of us to see how you don't have to sacrifice fashion if you want to be modest. In fact, modesty is even more beautiful! Modest clothes can be adorable and gorgeous, but the thing that is truly beautiful is a woman who is modest. Modesty starts in the heart and works outward to everything you do and wear. We need to take a stand against immodest clothing and hearts! We must be the generation that stands out from the world.

1 Peter 3:3-4 ESV 

Do not let your adorning be external—the braiding of hair and the putting on of gold jewelry, or the clothing you wear— but let your adorning be the hidden person of the heart with the imperishable beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which in God's sight is very precious.

1 Timothy 2:8-10 ESV 

I desire then that in every place the men should pray, lifting holy hands without anger or quarreling; likewise also that women should adorn themselves in respectable apparel, with modesty and self-control, not with braided hair and gold or pearls or costly attire, but with what is proper for women who profess godliness—with good works.

Princess Kate Middleton Fashion!

I've seen so many pictures of Princess Kate, and I think I've fallen in love with her outfits. They are modest, clean, and vintage!

This coat dress is so chic! Add brown tights and suede ankle boots, and it's even better! She looks stunning in brown.
This dress is gorgeous. It has feminine pleats and a belted waist! The fluttery skirt is so beautiful, as is the boatneck top. And her hubby is looking nice!

Vintage vintage vintage! This army button style three-quarter sleeve dress is adorable. The dusty grey pumps are a wonderful touch, as is the hat. As for her idea what he's wearing!!
This sunny yellow dress is bee-yoo-tiful. The puffed sleeves, the collar, the oversized buttons! Ah, it is a breezy spring beauty.

This three-quarter peplum red dress is gorgeous. (as always! The pleated skirt does not make her look prep school either! And the dramatic hat could NOT be pulled off in America. But England? Totally.
A beautiful smile, a beautiful dress! I love the dainty grey tie around the waist and the subtly pleated skirt is lovely. I love the speckled grey dress with the inky black pumps.

Wow. This is a lot like what I picture my wedding dress looking like! I love lace sleeves, but I would want the lace to not start until the arms for full modesty. And, I would choose a higher neckline. She looks like a princess (haha!). I love the lace overlay on the skirt and the intricate details on the bodice.

Princess Kate definitely has a good sense of fashion! Can't wait to see the little royal baby coming soon!

The 2008 Grammy Awards!

This is the last Grammy post, and then I will do a review on style evolution of specific people! Please leave a comment with suggestions of people I should do.

Oh look, it's Miss Sassy Plastic Wrap! (a.k.a. Miley Cyrus) This dress looks like it's made out of either a grocery bag, a Ziploc bag, or cling wrap. Two words. UG. LY! Her hair was gorgeous though. Why would you want to cut off your beautiful locks and dip them in a bucket of bleach?
Oh wow. The fluffy blue part of this skirt is gorgeous! But the silver part...?? is very much lacking. Beyonce tried to go for a "fierce" look here, but I think she just spoiled the femininity. The uneven tube top is very odd.

Alicia Keys' Grammy dress is a beautiful midnight blue. It is modest, and very feminine. The wide strap halter top is pretty, and so is the side stripe ruching is slimming. The clutch looks like a glasses case!! Or a small pink football.

Ohmygoodnessohmygoodnessohmygoodness!! I love this dress on Taylor!! The blue is SUCH a beautiful color on her. I love the almost corset style top and the jeweled, draped skirt. And oh, her hair! So gorgeous.

Rihanna chose a knee length electric blue dress. This color is gorgeous with her dark skin. I'm not too wild about the fringe hanging around the knees. I think it would have looked better if it had been a ruffle layer. Haha! I just looked at her hair and the color of the dress and couldn't help but think "Sonic the Hedgehog!" ;)

Well, that's all for now! Let me know in the comments what people I should review! :)

Voyez-vous demain, des lecteurs !

Grammys 2009!

Sorry I have not been keeping up with this blog! Summer has gotten very busy....I've been cooking, cleaning, and doing some fashion designing! Here we are for the 2009 Grammys post. :)

Black looks good on Miley Cyrus's bronzed skin! However, the two fabrics don't flow well together. It's flattering at the hips, but then the different fabric starts and it becomes unflattering.  The dramatic flower is a fun embellishment.
Black, white, and grey can be a beautiful combination together if done right. This is not one of those outfits. It's a crooked color block outfit, and it just doesn't mesh. There's no flow to the dress whatsoever. There's really no shape to it either! Jennifer Hudson just couldn't pull this one off. And blue pumps? They seem to be a mismatching last-minute accessory.

Kim Kardashian is modeling a pale gown that makes her look like a cupcake! But not in a cutesy fun way. I don't know what the deal is about large thighs and short dresses. Even if I didn't wear below the knee dresses for modesty's sake, I would want to conceal my thighs! The flounces and ruffles are not flattering.

Kathy Griffin stuns in a royal blue gown. This is a simply beautiful piece, and a wonderful color accent to her hair and skin. The simple ruching that leads to the thin belt is attractive and feminine.

Sara Bareilles looks sweet in a rosy pink. Red and pink are not my favorite combination, but this somehow works. She could have incorporated red more and included a red shawl or bolero. I like the rose ruffles on the skirt.
Carrie Underwood is in a flowing gown with a sparkly gold overlay and a simple gold satin underlay. She looks like a princess in gold, but the top is a bit gaudy in the front.

I swear all her Grammy dresses look the same! Miss Adele has definitely lost weight since 2009, and I commend her for that. I'm thinking maybe the black tights were not a great idea. This knee length dress makes her look like she's going into mourning, and the tights complete that.
Gack! This buttered popcorn yellow dress is horrifique! Cette robe n'est pas belle du tout.
Les bijoux horribles sur l'épaule m'incitent à frissonner, et elle ressemble à quelque chose qu'un vieux de cinq ans pourrait avoir cousue.

I propose a challenge for all of you! The first person who translates this French correctly (you can use a translator site) and comments back to me what it says will get to pick what kind of a fashion post I do next. You may name a person who you would like me to review fashion on, or an awards ceremony, or just a specific type of fashion in general!

Happy summer!
