Party Frocks, Personalized iPad/Kindle Cases & A Man in Uniform

Well now, if it isn’t a Monday.  In every way.  Even Tilly is feeling it.

Because we are slightly overbooked tomorrow (Tuesday), unfortunately today’s blather post shall have to suffice for both days, we do apologize for our appalling lack of time management skills.

We begin with what is becoming an almost weekly event, another in the Sunday night parade of celebrities showing their party frocks, jewels and accessories as they head into yet another awards show. (If it is all so very wretched then pray tell, why dost thou engage in adding fuel to the frenzy, hello?!!) Last night’s venue was the Screen Actors Guild Awards.

We thought Nicole Kidman looked lovely in black lace by Nina Ricci, although we are apparently in the minority, at least from what we gleaned in this morning’s reviews.

Diane Baranski from The Good Wife was radiant and True Grit’s Hailee Steinfeld was very pretty in Prada.

Several stars were in Oscar de la Renta, including Jennifer Lawrence (below left), nominated for her role in Winter’s Bone (the movie was quite the sensation at Sundance last week), she was in a shocking pink gown from the designer’s pre-fall 2011 collection.

Above right Glee’s Lea Michele is also wearing OdlR, a blush crepe de chine dress from this spring’s collection.  We enjoyed this next picture via PopSugar, the young stars of Modern Family: Rico Rodriguez, Ariel Winter and Nolan Gould all looked darling.

Not looking as stellar as she generally does, Jane Lynch from Glee missed the mark in a bouffant lavender creation. On a more positive note, Jeff and Susan Bridges provided a note of understated elegance.

When it comes to hits and misses on the red carpet, All the Rage, the LA Time’s style blog, counted these two as “misses”:

“…Jenna Fischer’s gray Fendi gown is an odd choice. The fit is off and the color does nothing for her. Not sure about Jayma Mays’ coral-colored Jenny Packham gown either. What’s with the awkward-looking single beaded sleeve?”

Also on the “misses” list and understandably so, Angie Harmon.

All the Rage offered this on Ms. Harmon’s dress: “… Monique Lhuillier that looked as if it were about to molt”. Ouch.

Anti-Prep Kim Kardashian’s Marchesa gown was labeled both a hit and a miss, depending upon whom you were reading this morning.

We liked Mad Men’s January Jones in Carolina Herrera, but did not find her highly styled hairdo nearly as fabulous or flattering as most others did; as always, co-star Jon Hamm looked stylish.

The LA Times had a nice note about Mr. Hamm:

“The very clean-cut Don Draper would certainly not approve, but Hamm’s fans certainly did — he signed more autographs than anyone else on the carpet before them.”

That is the sort of thing you like to read about, as opposed to the plethora of “stars behaving badly” stories we so frequently see.

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Our other topic today is fun, albeit crassly commercial (gasp).  We are all gaga over our brand new personalized iPad and Kindle cases.

PreppyPrincess.com

Above we show three of the patterns available, definitely today’s Pretty in Pink and Green. Below, two of the argyle designs available.

The cases come in two versions, one for the Apple iPad (10″ x 7.5″ x 1″) and one for the Kindle DX (11″ x 7.75″ x 1″).

One of our personal favorites is the Sailor Plaid in red, white and blue, although the Rhapsody Stripes make us think of deep turquoise waters and blue skies.

The cases are crafted of durable neoprene and may be monogrammed or personalized in a variety of ways.

We couldn’t be happier to offer Lovie and Dodge, these are precisely what we were looking for after acquiring our very own iPad, and we will have more goodies from this splendid company moving forward.

We know many readers probably aren’t sleeping well, overwrought by concerns about precisely what Prince William will wear for his trip to the altar in April. Put away the sleep aids, tonight you can snooze in bliss, comforted in the knowledge that question has been answered.

Via Hello! magazine

The Prince shall be in uniform, Savile Row firm Gieves and Hawke is making his suit.

Gieves and Hawkes

It isn’t yet known if he will opt for a Naval, Army or RAF uniform; the Prince is eligible to wear any of the three. Now if we only knew about Miss Middleton’s wedding gown designer….sigh.  That news will come soon enough, the media are camped out simply everywhere trying to get the upper hand on the story, but the family and the varying Palaces involved are managing this one rather well, good for them we say.

On that note, we say goodbye until next time, may everyone be safe and warm and dry.
