Friday Faves & Finds (5.18.18)


week in review

I’m not even a little bit ashamed of how pumped I am for Saturday’s Royal Wedding between Prince Harry and Meghan Markle. The dresses, the pomp and circumstance – it’s a fun, happy occasion, and I can’t wait. Now that I know our writer, Lorrie, went to college with Meghan, I’m even more excited.  


I wonder if she’ll take wedding gown inspiration from any of these iconic dresses?

What will Duchess Kate and the bridesmaids wear? Hopefully not one of these frocks.
