Monday Musings

Hello-Hello, and welcome to the Monday mayhem here at the Prepatorium! We are ever so harried today, we apologize for a completely disorganized post.

We begin with word on the dress worn by entertainer Carrie Underwood at her wedding last weekend to hockey star Mike Fisher. Monique Lhuillier created the Chantilly lace and silk organza gown worn by Ms. Underwood for the ceremony.

The singer’s reception gown was also done by the designer, who shows both dresses on her Facebook page.

As seen in the pictures, People magazine and sister publication People Style News have the story on the bridal gowns and accessories.

According to StyleList the shoes were by Stuart Weitzman, his white satin Avalon platform pump. (If it appears to have a pink tone that is because it was embellished with pink crystals.) The bride wore a feather and crystal ban.do headband.

Notwithstanding our thoughts on daytime glitter and frou-frou, the young entertainer looked beautiful, and the two make a lovely couple.

We may have previously mentioned this, the sleepwear line Norma Kamali is doing for Walmart; today’s WWD story had a few images from the collection.

The new line debuts online October 10.

We have previously shared links to Lilly Pulitzer and Vera Bradley for those wishing to perk up their desktop via free downloadable designs. Our friends at Boatman Geller are also offering some of their most popular patterns as wallpaper.

The available designs include a pattern we adore, Espadrille Preppy Stripe, delightful for your computer or your tabletop!

In today’s “We are not Worthy” category, two public ‘Thank You’ notes. The first is to the gifted and delightful Miss LPC, perhaps better known by her blog, Privilege.  This always stylish writer was much-too-kind when composing a recent post, we can only offer a public expression of gratitude in return. When we grow up we hope to have a smidgen of LPC’s talent and skill.

Our other thank you is for the ever-so-proper (and loads of fun) Miss Janice; specifically for sharing pictures of a recent soirée she hosted.

Some of Miss Janice’s Lilly Pulitzer tableware came via a blog contest we sponsored with Muffy Martini, the prize was a complete set of the Loco Patch party and tableware items. Thank you for sharing Miss Janice, we always enjoying seeing how people actually use some of our favorite Princess goodies!

    Thank you for posting the pictures of Carrie’s wedding. I have been waiting for this issue for a while, but unfortunately we won’t get it for at least another week or so.

  2. I don’t know who Carrie is. I see Carrie and I think Sex and the City. My un-coolness is showing. I am off to google. her.
    Hope you had a lovely weekend.xo

  7. Hello hello, TP!

    J’adore those Lilly party wares … I will check in with you about ordering some whenever I’m back in the entertaining business. I fear that may be sometime in 2050, but nevertheless, gorgeous stuff!
