↑ I’m dying.  I’m dead. Real quick before I get into it – did that Ashton Kutcher kid really leave Demi of Ghost?  I heard this recently.  I just sort of thought it would never happen.  Have you heard this, too? Ok SO… Happy Friday afternoon AGAIN!  :)  As promised, here’s blog post numero dos, [...]

SHORT DRESS LOVE + DEAR TKB: “I want to wear a shortish dress for my wedding. Good idea or bad idea? And any favorites this season?”

SHORT DRESS LOVE + DEAR TKB: “I want to wear a shortish dress for my wedding. Good idea or bad idea? And any favorites this season?”

Sometimes Starbucks coffee is a bit bitter, but sometimes Starbucks coffee is the liquified embodiment of the moment of creation/discovery of the essence of all that is bitter in this cold, unforgiving world by the esteemed inventor of bitterness himself, Sir Bitter McBiddingston, IV, Esq. Uggh.  I’m sitting here, on this shockingly beautiful Monday afternoon,

SEASIDE GLAMOUR + I NEED HER DRESS | fuchsia + mint + white delight | Plus, The Bambeen… and I need a little advice from you guys. Also, holy crap I’ve lost my mind.

Second verse, same as the first.  I have to warn you, yet again, that today’s post got so out of hand I CAN’T EVEN TELL YOU.  I’m afraid even to read it over for spelling and punctuation.  I fear my own rampant oddness will get the best of me, like two parallel universes (universi?) colliding.

I just applied a snake bite venom removal survival tactic to my keyboard’s face.  This is my life.   Alison spills coffee on her spacebar, Alison calls upon her experience in reality survival show watching, Alison puts lips to spacebar, and sucks.  So I’m sitting here with poppy seeds, what I believe to be a [...]

REAL WEDDING | This post might make Vogue’s Anna Wintour rethink her stance on *soft* images. BONUS: One of the prettiest + one of the smartest trends in weddings.

Ok, so just so you know, today’s feature makes my heart beat so far out of my chest that it jogs up my sternum and slaps me in the face with my aorta.  (I should note here that my aorta’s a bitch.  She face slaps with an intensity and meaning that cannot be explained without [...]

Happy Monday afternoon, darlings!  Did you guys enjoy your weekends?  I sure hope so.  For us, this weekend was chock-full of family time, so it was busy busy busy.  My niece and nephew along with their mommy and daddy (my sister/brother-in-law), plus my kick-ass big brother (not to be confused with my beloved even-though-he’s-25-years-old-I-still-wanna-consider-myself-his-other-mother little [...]

WHITE + MINT + LAVENDER | Whimsical Wedding Inspiration, FORM OF: Streamers, ribbons, bunting, treats, bottles & pointelle lace. Also, THINGS JUST GOT REAL.

First off, LOL.  I originally wrote “Steamers” instead of “Streamers” in the title.  GLAD I CAUGHT THAT BEFORE PUBLISHING TODAY. Anywho, afternoon, lovelies!  What is it, like 3:30 EST?  Yeah, you’ll get why in a sec.  Ok, so I just gotta tell you that we’ve got relatively amazeballs things happening sooner and later this month, [...]

ROMANTIC DIY ORCHARD WEDDING | Dreamy Florals, Pink Converse, Pies for Dessert, and a Wedding Dress from the Unlikeliest of Places…

Ok, so today’s wedding is so perfectly pretty and perfect that I threw up a little bit in my mouth IN A GOOD WAY.  It’s the wedding manifestation of a perfectly cooked delicious and ultimately belch-worthy meal in one of those European countries that consider belching a compliment (so I can only imagine throwing up [...]

CELEBRITY DRESS INSPIRATION | Blake Lively + Chanel | Are these looks wedding appropriate + Who wore it better?

Ok, SO it’s approximately 4:30pm EST and, as I sit here eating half a cinnabun from last week (I really need to go shopping), I’m feeling pretty high-spirited, because I’m quite sure I have some really solid evidence that those supposed Blake Lively nakey photos leaked to the internets were not real.  And I’m basing [...]

As you know, here at TKB I thrive on talking about all things wedding and style, throwing in a pinch of [...]

ELEGANT CALIFORNIA WEDDING | Urban Sophistication Meets French Romance… with the rockinest shoe shot I’ve seen. + Bambino & The Bachelorette [or, WTF Ashley?]

RIGHT.  So lemme get this straight.  Notably sane Michelle Money who has suddenly developed concern for others tipped off Ashley that Bentley was a douchebag, Ashley tells Chrisharrison (don’t call him Chris, it’s not his name, Chrisharrison is his name) that someone warned her about Bentley being a douchebag (or as everyone on that show [...]

Sigh.  Hoowwwww to start off today’s post.  I am going to be slamming Vera Wang dresses into your faces, today-style – as in, in this post – but here’s what I’ve been struggling with all morning and afternoon… I had considered just skipping all the crappity crap that’s transpired as of late… even as of [...]

RUFFLES, LOVE & FRUSTRATION | Something I like, something I hate, and McPuppyPants does an impression. So in other words, business as usual.

Today, I’ve got to talk about something I feel pretty strongly about.  (And I’m gonna want to know if I’m alone in this feeling.)  Coupled, of course, with fashion, photography, pop culture and general wedding-related thingies.  So, a mixed bag. :) Ok, SO.  Have you heard?
