What to Wear to a Wedding plus
She She Me's Guilty Pleasures/Obsessions

Okay, I admit it. I am a closet Bachelor addict. I can't help it! Even though season after season it is the same scenario: sometimes harmless, often hopeless and practically always helpless single men being bombarded by long, lean, tanned and taloned extremely predatory females, all after the same thing — the rose. And ultimately of course — the ring. Doesn't it seem a little strange that a guy is supposed to meet a couple dozen complete strangers (albeit completely gorgeous strangers wheeling enormous suitcases filled with fabulously frothy confections!) then in a matter of weeks he must date them all, "get to know" them all, gradually weed them out and ultimately fall in love, (often with more than one of them) and then propose marriage to the "winner"? And all the while the girls are all living together and comparing notes?!? It's like the captain of the football team dating the entire sorority at the same time!! It gives me the shivers just thinking about it! But it does make for entertaining television viewing, no?

And I have to admit that every once in awhile there seems to be a truly genuine experience happening, and that's when it's really fun. Even if some of those truly genuine experiences are scripted!

Anyhoo, interesting factoid: The wedding of former Bachelor Jason Mesnick and Molly Malaney will be televised this coming Monday, March 8, and celebrity makeup artist and Mally Beauty founder Mally Roncal (www.mallybeauty.com) worked to develop Molly’s wedding day makeup look and also produce a style for each of her bridesmaids.

With the tsunami warning looming on the West Coast, Mally knew her bulletproof makeup would hold up in inclement weather. “I design high performance products that can stand up to any element from camera lights to a 12-hour work day or even torrential downpour,” said Mally. When a deluge of rain passed through during the ceremony, Mally and her team waited behind the scenes for touch-ups. As Molly and the bridesmaids arrived safely indoors, they were blown away when they realized their makeMuse Tenup didn’t budge – a true testament to Mally’s brand.

To create Molly’s look, Mally used the products below from the Mally Beauty collection.

So now we can all benefit from the Bachelor experience with these great beauty tips. I've been using Mally Beauty products for a couple of years now and I absolutely adore them! My favorite is this great trio of waterproof eyeliners — I adore the Lucky Penny in a rich gorgeous copper color that makes my green eyes positively pop! Check out the great products at Mally girls!

And speaking of weddings (we were speaking of weddings, right?) here are a few tips for wedding shower, ceremony and reception styles for the chic and stylish wedding guest!

What to Wear to a Bridal Shower

Well now girls, this all depends on exactly what type of bridal shower it is. Is it a friends and family type shower where the future mother-in-law, grandmother, aunties and cousins will be attending? If so, think demure and ladylike. A very feminine dress or skirt and top, paired with strappy mid-heel sandals, understated accessories and an sleek handbag are the perfect choice.

Perhaps it is a girls-night-out type of bridal shower, mostly close girlfriends and perhaps held at a restaurant or bistro? A little more edgy style is perfectly appropriate here. A great pair of skinny jeans paired with skyscraper sandals or stiletto boots. Add a flirty top and a sheer lightweight cardi, a great statement necklace and a funky clutch and you are set. Or this amazing copper skirt from J. Crew, paired with a skinny tee or cami and flat gladiators — truly fun!

A weekend brunch of afternoon tea? Something a little more fun and flirty — perhaps a girly sundress paired with patent platforms, statement accessories and a fabulous handbag.

What to Wear to a Wedding Ceremony

Again, it depends on the when and where of the ceremony. If the ceremony is taking place in a church or place of worship, please dress modestly — no bare backs, deep plunging necklines, strapless dresses or mini skirts. You can always wear a dressy sweater or elegant shawl during the ceremony to keep bare shoulders or backs covered. A sheath dress is an excellent and elegant choice, as is a full-skirted cocktail dress. I would go with dressier heels, perhaps a slingback or d'orsay style pump. Opt for understated accessories — pearl studs or delicate hoops are ideal — and an elegant clutch.

For an outdoor or beach wedding, something a little more dressy casual is appropriate. Floaty dresses and skirts, sheer sweaters and silky tops. I would skip the heels altogether and go with an embellished flat sandal or something with a slight wedge sole (no one wants to end up with their heels stuck in the grass or sand, right?). Accessories that echo nature are a great choice here, as is a dressy hat with a brim, to keep those pesky UV rays at bay. Can't find a dressy hat? Drape a silk scarf or ribbon around the brim of your sunhat and you are good to go!

What to Wear to a Wedding Reception

Think more of a party atmosphere. The tough stuff is over, all the pomp and circumstance, and it's time to just relax and have fun. Cocktail dresses are an excellent choice, as is the ubiquitous LBD. Add a pair of great earrings, slip into your favorite dancing shoes, spritz on a light perfume (Daisy by Marc Jacobs is the go-to perfume for spring and summer!) and get ready to dance the night away!

Well darlings, you'll be looking your most stylish and sassy as you dive to catch the bouquet!

Daisy by Marc Jacobs

I just love getting gifts in the mail! And I was doubly thrilled with this gorgeous bottle of Daisy Eau de Toilette Spray by Marc Jacobs. Light and refreshing, with the vintage scent of violet, it is light enough to wear during the day, and lasting enough to carry through the evening.

The bottle is absolutely adorable, with light blue daisies adorning the topper, and it even came with a scented paper daisy chain, which I hung from the rearview mirror of my car. Now my little coupe smells like a breath of spring!

Try Daisy by Marc Jacobs. It's sure to become your springtime favorite!

 


U.S. Army Watches

The watch is the quintessential accessory for men and women because it is functional and fashionable, showing a bit of the wearer’s personality. It is also one of this spring's must-have accessories! And now, the watch market just got a little edgier, thanks to US ARMY Watches, which hit stores this month.  This is the first time the US government has licensed US ARMY for watches; and the resulting product has the same integrity and functionality you would expect from something with the US ARMY name on it.

“We have developed a watch line that exemplifies the pride of the US Army, combined with a chic and rugged aesthetic,” says Abraham Amouyal, president of 3A Watch Group. The line, which includes 23 unique watches, comes in three collections: Calvary (casual, sporty styles), Infantry (bold faces with unique bands) and Brigade (colorful blue, white and pink designs).

Using materials like rubber and neoprene, these watches are water-resistant and built for durability. The pieces, which come in both men’s and women’s styles, make an ideal gift (with a price point between $80 and $145) because of their universally appealing styles.


Jasmere.com is the first and only online sample site that continually lowers its prices as more customers buy. The concept was conceived by Katrina and Jeremy Kugel in December 2009 and is changing the world of online commerce through its “social” shopping mechanism. Each day, the jasmere features a new product, which they offer at an exclusive discount price. The starting price is typically 60% off the regular retail and falls to as much as 80% off by the end of the 24-hour period. Jasmere features high-end purveyors of everything from hand-made evening bags to gourmet chocolate chip cookies; designer jeans to custom jewelry; letterpress stationery to eco-friendly water bottles. What do these merchants have in common? Simply that most people haven't heard of them, but they have a top-quality product that deserves national attention. That's what the jasmere discovery" is all about.

“We believe if people just knew about some of these stylish, up-and-coming designers and retailers, they would fall in love with their products,” said Katrina Kugel, co-founder of jasmere.com. Jasmere is also different than the others in that you do not have to be a member to have access to the daily deal. “We didn’t want our sample sales to be limited to those who receive our e-mail newsletters. Who are we to say to someone, sorry members only. That’s not how social shopping should be,” explains Kugel.

Check out Jasmere.com today and see what goodies are in store for you at deep deep discounts!
