Ever since Kate Middleton got married in that iconic Alexander Wang gown, brides-to-be everywhere have been lusting after similar styles. We’ve seen many imitations and gowns that have gotten close, but none have come as close as the new Lia Gown by BHLDN.
Designer Catherine Deane was inspired by an intricate piece of Victorian-era lace she found in an antique market in France when she dreamed up this breathtaking, timeless, and feminine gown. From the plunging neckline to the floor-skimming hem, scalloped edges and sheer sleeves sweeten the silhouette.
This gown embodies all elements that I love: the lace, the long-sleeve, scalloped edges. ugh! This dress is a dream and I can’t wait until the retailer showcases real brides wearing this dress in their Facebook feature Real BHLDN Brides.
While I’ve been at work, I haven’t been able to watch all of the live coverage of the Royal Baby over the last couple of days, but I did like this video of Kate Middleton and Prince William introducing their son to the world yesterday. In Doobybrain’s article Herman mentions the difference between how they conduct themselves in public versus how famous American couples behave in the spotlight. It is vastly different, but kind of hard to put a finger on what exactly that is. Maybe Kate and William are just more subtle? Whatever the case, I think I prefer it. The two are a great-looking couple, but seem just as sweet. Up until now, I’ve actually never heard Kate speak either.
Kate Middleton, the Duchess of Cambridge gave birth to a healthy baby boy weighing at 8 pounds and 6 ounces at 4:24PM today. Congratulations to the happy couple!

Favorite Style Icon: Taylor Swift
T. Swift has seriously stepped her game in 2012. Yes, she’s still sticking to the neutral colored dresses – but hey! That’s okay. It works for her. Taylor Swift is really just doing all the right things when it comes to her style these days and it helps that there are a handful of fabulous designers throwing their pieces at her. It’s awesome. I, of course, am jealous.
