Hot or not?
While I typically love Kelis's style, something about this look is throwing me off. Thoughts?

Vera Wang for David's Bridal

5/07/2010 10:36:00 AM Posted by Christina

Pleas excuse me--I'm still coming off my wedding high (hubby and I just got our full-length wedding dvd back and watched it twice last night!) David's Bridal has not been on the top of the list of wedding dress retailers lately. I know when I was shopping for a dress, that was the last place on my mind. However, next year, Vera Wang, the premier wedding dress designer, is partnering with David's Bridal to create a bridal dress line. The collection will be comprised of dresses ranging from $600-$1500. Although I am normally a little skeptical about collaborations between top designers and mainstream retailers (ie. Designer Collaborations for Target) I think this one will pan out great. I can't wait to see the collection, which will soon thereafter produce bridesmaid and children's wedding attire line.

I think it is a great idea for both parties--David's Bridal can possibly change the minds and hearts of brides to be, and Vera Wang can reach out to a new demographic who may not have been able to afford an original designer gown. It's brilliant.

Why Don't You Love Me by Beyonce

5/05/2010 09:51:00 AM Posted by Christina

Here is Beyonce's new video, Why Don't You Love Me. It has a sexy vintage theme, of a helpless, hopeless housewife. I don't know how I feel about the video. It's oozing with desperation as she begs her man to love her. She claims to have everything he wants and needs, and doesn't understand why he doesn't love her. She gives him her everything, yet it still isn't good enough.

Lately, there has been so much talk about how women aren't good enough to love--that they have to do this thing or that thing to be loveable, and make a man want to marry her. I think it simply isn't true, and the percentage of women who give their everything to make a marriage or relationship work, should understand, you have to be yourself--do not waver. Show a man that you love him and want him in your life, but do not need him. A man cannot make you happy. You must first be happy with yourself, before anyone else can love you.

I'm Back!

4/29/2010 11:13:00 AM Posted by Christina

Hey all! I know it has been FOREVER since I've posted, and I'm sorry. I got married almost one month ago, and life has been crazy! I had less than 6 months to plan the biggest day of my life. From my last post in November 2009 to now, so many things have changed. However, my love for fashion definitely has not changed!

Now that I am getting back into the groove of things, I will be posting regulary. I have decided to shift the style and focus of Purple Glamour. I don't want it to be just another fashion blog. Bear with me, as I share my current and future goals, and take this blog to the next level! I am in the process of creating a new design and lots of goodies for you to read and share if you'd like.

I have missed all of you, I hope you have missed me too!

I want to know what everyone has been up to, so please comment and share one goal you have for the upcoming summer season--whether it's to lose weight or switch up your wardrobe. I'll go first! My goal for this summer to start grad school. I have been out of college for almost 2 years now, and I have decided to get my Master's in marketing. I am doing marketing for my current job, but I want to take my skills and knowledge to the next level. I eventually want to start my own marketing firm, targeting local boutiques. One step at a time though.

Can't wait to read your comments!

Wedding Fab: Douglas Hannant

11/13/2009 05:53:00 PM Posted by Christina

Hey readers! Sorry I have been M.I.A. lots have been going on!

I am so excited to tell you that I am getting married! My fiancé proposed to me a week ago at the restaurant where we had our first date a year ago in front of our family and close friends. It was so sweet, I was speechless!

So, I am going to be in full wedding mode for the next six months--we have decided to have a spring wedding, so we will be getting married in April!

Anyway, I am on the search for the perfect dress, and I found a designer who just takes my breath away--Douglas Hannant. He is a New York designer who creates the most beautiful bridal gowns--they are ultra-feminine and undeniably unique.

Take a look at his fab fall '09 collection...




Have you ever seen anything so beautiful? We are having a day wedding, so I am looking for something a little less formal, but equally glamorous. What do you think? I love the soft, floating textures and frilly silhouettes.
I'm off to a great start, right? : )

Trend Alert:



Ok, so there is a huge trend in the fashion universe right now--one that I particularly admire. Boots have been around for a long time, so this is nothing new. Nevertheless, over-the-knee and thigh-high boots have been all the rage lately. I am particularly smitten by this trend, because it is one that works for even shorts gals, like me. Perfect with a dress or skirt above the knee, shorts or leggings, over-the-knee boots are perfect for any fall wardrobe. And they keep you warm too.

Shop the boots above at various price points and styles below...

Will you adopt the trend?
