DEAR TKB: “I Think I Need More Sex Than My Partner… What Do I Do?” PLUS: Royal Baby News (UPDATED) & Would You Wear This Sheer Wedding Dress? | NSFW

Clearly I have a lot to talk about.

2013-royal-baby-watch-and-sex-and-libido

Today’s letter for our Dear TKB advice column is the first I’ve received of its kind, but the issue the reader is facing is turning out to be a lot more common than I think we as a culture realize.  Friends of ours have gone through it.  I’ve been through it myself in the past.  Lots of taboo around it but there shouldn’t be!

Obvs. the goal with these posts is to have some real conversation about stuff that’s otherwise difficult to talk about, for some.  I’m looking forward to reading your thoughts and advice, if you have any you’re willing to offer!

Ok now,  {Continue reading…}

BRIDAL FASHION WEEK | Top Choice in: *Trends* | The One Trend I Wanted in Dresses, Happened!!! Plus Bambino.

So friends… it came, and it went.  And it was spectacular.  Bridal designers converged on NYC earlier this month for Bridal Fashion Week, and on the whole they brought forth perhaps the most satisfying alternative ever, to the full pelvic lower back tattoo of a mason jar holding a lavender bouquet shaped like a giant mustache sipping on a striped paper straw that I was going to get in order to make my wedding photos that super extra special bit of unique.  “Blog-worthy,” as they say.

Mom, you can start speaking to me again!  Not getting the back tattoo you said you’d kill yourself over before you lived another day to see me with a back tattoo!

Just kidding about the tattoo.  I’m not an idiot.  My tattoo will be {Continue reading…}

Not Gonna Talk About Kate Middleton’s Boobies. PLUS: TKB News, a Pink + Red + White Wedding by Nessa K, The Best Advice I Ever Got… and life these days.

I know I wrote a lot of words today.  I just feel like I have to say it all.

The way that I’m gonna start this off is by first telling you the way that I am not gonna start it off.  Which is: talking about Kate Middleton’s boobies.  You really think I’m gonna throw that kinda thing in your face on a MONDAY AFTERNOON?  Please- I am not that crass.  I do not hurl nakedness at you on just any day of the week.  I hurl sex stuff at you only on Tuesday through Friday and sometimes Saturday.  Which means I’m waiting until tomorrow to talk about Kate Middleton’s chest being photographed/published/seen by the world entirely without her permission.

RUSTIC COUNTRY DIY WEDDING | … Uhhhhhhh can I haz it? Oh how I ADORE the mismatched bridesmaids look! | By Erica Ann Photography and Fine Art

Hellllloooooo, lovelies!  How goes it?  … Good, good that’s good.  Uhhh so HEY, hey…. you…. pssssst…… you…. yeah, you, over there…. hey you wanna see a wedding?

AWESOME.  I mean really?  REALLY?!  Ohhhh man, that’s awesome.  Awesome awesome awesome because I got one.  So this is PERFECT.  Man I’m, I’m just so glad you said so!  This really worked out well.  Also, I think this means we’re besties now…?  Also also, I’ll be turning in my Not Yet 100% Ridiculous membership card later.  Because all of that-ness that just went on earlier in the paragraph was just RIDIC ulous.  I’m worried though that they might not have alumni pins for when you’re out of the NY100%A club, because they probably don’t want to be associated with the people who aren’t in it anymore… seeing as we’re weird in a weird way now, instead of a cute way.  … Yeah.  Dang.

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, {Continue reading…}

BLACK GOWNS WITH BIG IMPACT ❧ I {heart} romona keveza ❧ I am Woman… Watch Me Lure

So, because of the overwhelming reaction I received to a recent fashion-focused post (which was a bit surprising to me, if I’m honest), I’ve gone ahead and gathered a bevy of beautiful dresses – all of them current favorites in my book and, more importantly, all in the color of night.  I think – no, I KNOW you’re going to LOOOOOVE them.

Recognize that one?  Yep, it’s the one used in Jose Villa’s magnificent photo shoot.  Black gowns are stunning when done right.  And if you’ve been searching (all your life, like me) for that perfect little – or long – black dress, have no fear!  These days, there’s no shortage of great design out there.  Just try a few of these on for size.  They’re all from leading bridal designer, Romona Keveza, a woman who has a firm grasp of the female form… almost as firm a grasp as these gowns do.

Not sure of the style number of this one, which is sucky because it’s my fave of the bunch…
