ATTENTION KNOTTY READERS: It Begins… { guest bloggers, proposal stories update + summer dress picks! }

Lynx & Leo Dress

A bunch of HUGE things are going on over the next week or two.  I shall itemize them now.

(… But I shall also pepper in my hottest dress picks for summer, because who doesn’t love that?  A good read (if I do say so myself) + the cutest dresses ever = a great blog post, in my estimation.)  Ok, DRESS PIC TIME!

Jackie Paper Dress


Item #1:

Your proposal stories are b for bananas.  I really don’t know how else to describe them.  They are just making my YEAR right now.  They are so awesome that I need to pursue a column in a wedding or style magazine where I can feature them regularly because that’s how much they rule.  And guess what?  Set your watches (my 6th grade mathlete buddies) because the series is set to start in a couple of weeks.  I know you guys are dying to see them up in lights and believe me, I am dying to bring them to your neck faces.  DRESS PIC!  …

Time Gone By Dress


Item #2:

The Fancy and I have a pretty wonderful weekend planned.  You know, one of those few personal kinds of things you do with one another that you probably should keep off the blog so that you have at least a handful of memories that are yours alone?  I hope you guys don’t mind the secretiveness!!!  I really hope you understand.  All I can really tell you is that it is going to be amazeballs, and I sort of can’t wait for it to begin.  TWO DRESS PICS!

Marine Mural Dress

Victory is Mine Dress


Item #3:

Seeing as we’ll be MIA (see No. 2) between Saturday, June 26 and Wednesday, June 30, I’ve arranged a bit of a guest blogger bonanza for you, my wonderful, wonderful readers!  I AM CRAPPING MY PANTS IN EXCITEMENT over the guest bloggers I’ve invited to bring you the goody good goodness this coming Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday.  When you find out who they are, you just may crap your pants, too.  Fair warning.  DRE… you get it:

Photo Booth Dress

Girl Can’t Help It Dress

Things & Joys Dress

↑ Own this in blue.  OBSESSED. ↑


Item #4:

(Unrelated…) The bebez are coming!  The bebez are coming!  My sister and her gorgeous little famfam are picking up everything and making their annual summer trip from NM to NY, and I couldn’t be happier.  I’ve been singing from the rooftops (my shower) in sheer, joyous anticipation.  Apparently, the tots are growing like beanstalks; my six-year-old niece, Avery, is likely going to be taller than I am in the next few years (not a huge feat, btw).  Her momma (my sis) is miniature-sized at 5’1″, but her hubby could try out for the Lakers.  Their daughter is following in his very spread apart footsteps.  Which I just realized means that the dress I bought her is going to make her look seriously hoochiemama instead of like a princess.  #auntfail.

Ok, did I just hashtag a post?  I’m probably going to start addressing people by their twitter names in real-life conversations soon.  “Have you talked to at-john lately?”  Oohhhh, can you imaaaagine?

FYI: Friday’s Fab Finds ain’t goin’ nowheres.  Tune in tomorrow for one of the best yet.  YOU KNOW IT, SON.  (One of the finds is an all-time favorite thing on the internet ever.  I’m not kidding.)

Ooh, and one more thing: this week’s Style Me Pretty guest post from The Knotty Bride is going up around Noon EST.  And I may be more excited than I’ve ever been about a guest post, ever.  Because not only am I featuring a super fantastic wedding duo, but they’re my friends, too, and I love them!  I seriously {heart} everything about this wedding styling/photography team, and I think you will, too.  Check back later… I’ll be updating this post to link to the fabulousness (I hope I remember, I hope I remember…)!

Update!  The Knotty Bride’s guest post this week on Style Me Pretty!

By the way… just wonderin’… are you guys gonna miss me next week?  :)

xoxo!  -Alison

    Ok I could wear ALL of these dresses because I have an innocent and not so innocent side to me. I would totally rock the girl can't help it. I would not be responsible for what would happen if I wore that dress because I wouldn't be able to help it! All the dresses are….BANANAS! Will I miss you? Ummm now that is a no brainer! Like BANANAS. But, I think I can do without you as you and “the hon” go have some fun! xoxoxo love you to Reeses Pieces!

    I do really like the trend to the one shoulder dresses so thanks for featuring one! Not too sure about the layers in the “photo booth dress” b/c it may not flatter as many figures, ya know?
