So, it’s Friday. Which is awesome. I love Fridays for all the usual suspect reasons; they still evoke in me a gleeful “no school for DAAAYS” internal response, physiologically speaking. (I feel a digression coming on…) Which reminds me, I don’t know if you’ve heard, but a recent study done at some college somewhere provided a smidgen of evidence (enough to make the news) that we, as humans, might actually be able to see the future… somewhat. That’s pretty cool, eh? It’s kinda mind-blowing. Speaking of blowing, here’s the beauty part – it’s kinda complicated but the guy who conducted the study found that, when trying to guess where an image was going to appear, between two possible curtains on a computer screen, his human subjects were slightly more likely to guess correctly when porn was behind one of the curtains. So, apparently, we have the ability to see the future, when it means we might get to see titty. Go, evolution!
So, our little LuLu*s giveaway got off to an amazing start yesterday, and we’re so excited to see who actually wins next week! Love giving away things that aren’t mine. No risk, total reward! Gots to love it. And we’ve got some SERIOUSLY. GORGEOUS. weddings and shoots to share with you as early as next week. Of course. PLUS, the coolest and cutest Valentine’s Day themed DIY PROJECTS and FREE PRINTABLES! We swooned hardcore when these were submitted to us. Hint: they involve hearts, and straws, and V-Day cards, and even a V-Day giveaway. And OMGITISSOPRETTY. But anyway, today, I felt like giving you guys another installment of what’s fast-becoming a favorite series for you guys and for me! Love how that works out.
It’s that little ol’ thing I like to call FASHION IMPOSSIBLE! This is what I’ll be calling it from now on. I like titles. Almost as much as I like turtles. ;)
Today’s fashion find is from a gorgeous wedding that premiered on Style Me Pretty, and then made its way over to probably more than a few other blogs out there, who regurgitated its absolutely astonishing pretty pretty prettiness. That tends to happen when Jose Villa releases a brand new stunner. But, since it’s all about freshness here on TKB, I’m, of course, not regurgitating it. If you want to see the loveliness that is that wedding, please do visit the feature on Style Me Pretty and soak it all up. My girl Erin did a fab job of arranging it, and you’ve gotta take a look at all her hard work!
So, the focus of this here post is THAT SHORT WHITE DRESS. It sent shivers up my spine the moment I saw it, and I knew immediately that it’d be the next fashion impossible find on TKB. And guess what? I found it. High kick!
It’s the Floral-Applique Taffeta Dress, and it’s by BCBGMAXAZRIA. And guess what else?
♥ It’s available for purchase here. ♥
Here are some more shots by Jose Villa, because you just have to see how ADORBS this thing is.
Important note: The bride either had the dress altered or is wearing an earlier version, so the back is slightly different, and the floral scoopneck has some teeny tiny nuances. Easy stuff for a talented tailor.

In completely unrelated news, did you hear about what’s going on in Miami Beach? Parking lot weddings, THAT’S what.

Yeah. I know what you’re thinking…
… “That’s… that’s not as bad as I thought it was gonna be. In fact it looks quite decent, if a rooftop-esque wedding is what you’re after.”
But just in case I’m wrong… what are you thinking? Do you dig the concept of a cement parking structure as an event space?
… FYI – It can get a little windy up there.
