Monique Lhuillier Spring 2015 Collection

So we don’t have a Wedding Mondays video for you this week. I promise, I tried! I was behind for two weeks on two of my favorite wedding blogs and in those two weeks there weren’t any videos that I was dying to share with you all. I did, however, stumble upon a couple of other wedding posts that we think could be appropriate substitutes.

Lately, I’ve been thinking a lot about how Yow Yow! could transform over the years. There is never a shortage for what I want to do with it and the content. I may be busy with my new job, but I honestly can’t imagine a life without Yow Yow! And I’m really excited to continue on with this. Wedding Mondays is a huge part of what makes this blog and what I love about it is that it is consistent, but that doesn’t mean we can’t dive into other wedding details. Good lord, can you imagine how Yow Yow! will look when wedding moments happen in MY life? – ie) when my friends all start getting married or I become a bridesmaid and can give you a full insider scoop? I can’t wait!

We’re trying something different today. Monique Lhuillier recently released photographs to Green Wedding Shoes on their Spring 2015 collection and while I always thought I loved the very slim looking white dress, I’m starting to be open to new suggestions lately. These gowns are just too stunning to pass on.

Proud Owner:

And now that the Nordstrom Anniversary sale is live, I can finally share with you all of my purchases from this past week!

‘Maisie’ Top Coat for those blistering winds in San Francisco in the fall/winter and trips to Seattle!

topshop top

For nights out in the city and dress-up work days – Topshop Cutaway Wrap Back Shell. The draping is just the best part of this top.

suede booties

Grey Munro ‘Kara’ Suede booties – for the perfect long-sleeved dresses to wear with in the upcoming season!

I’m very fortunate to have had Ashley and Nadia save me by having the Nordstrom card and giving me early access to the Nordstrom sale this year, but who knows if I’ll have that special treatment next year. Looks like it’s time to apply for my own card :)

Candice Swanepoel Gets Cheeky

Victoria’s Secret model Candice Swanepoel is featured in Free People’s latest July catalog and to promote this month’s styling they featured a behind-the-scenes slash  get-to-know type of a video for Candice. In it, we learn a couple of facts: 1. that she doesn’t have a driver’s license and 2. that she grew up on a dairy farm. Candice has always been one of my favorite angels and we’re loving this video that the brand has created. They’ve done such a great job lately with all of their videos and we couldn’t be more impressed with them.

J. Crew Introduces Size 000

I know what you’re thinking. Any time any news is released about smaller sizes being released or models looking even more thin than they really should, everyone starts getting uncomfortable. I’ll admit, I’m one of those people. But I’m also in that same boat as the people that wear a 00 in jeans and an xxsmall in tops because that’s just what fits. People think it’s unrealistic for others to be this tiny, but it’s totally a reality. The only time it should be considered unhealthy is when someone who is not naturally this way hurts themselves to become a size 00.

J. Crew announced today that they were releasing a new size to their roster – 000 – to satisfy their customers in Asia. J. Crew’s sizes typically run a little larger so there is an entire demographic of people who are unable to wear their clothing.

A spokeswoman told Today.com, “We are simply addressing the demand coming from Asia for smaller sizes than what we had carried. Our sizes typically run big and the Asia market tends to run small… To further put into perspective, these sizes add up to the smallest possible percentage of our overall sizing assortment.” She noted the brand aims to “accommodate as many customers as possible… [It's] all based on customer demand.”

Looking forward to my first pair of J. Crew jeans!

Snaps for A Snapshot

Who: Nicola Peltz

Wearing: Stella McCartney bodysuit w/ a Dolce & Gabbana lace skirt.

Where: “Transformers: Age of Extinction” press tour in Berlin, Germany

We don’t normally feature someone for “Snaps for a Snapshot” nearly twice in one month, but when you dress as well as Nicola Peltz, how could we not?! The 19-year old has definitely caught our eye while on her tour promoting her recent film and while we hear the film isn’t really good, she’s totally nailing it with her outfits on the red carpet. I love how she paired a skirt with this body suit and kept it classy. The cutouts on the side add a little sexiness to this all white outfit.
