I haven’t posted anything in 10,000 years cause i have been too tired and crabby and not thinking too much about fashion. If any of you are still reading this, just thought i would let you know that i am just under 19 weeks pregnant (with a boy!). I hope to get back to my blog at some point. But, i am still waiting for the 2nd trimester energy spurt to kick in (is it an urban myth? because i am still going to bed at 7pm every night). Anyway, here is a funny email from C that made my day….thought you might enjoy it!

I am seriously having my patience tested. I created an aetna.com profile to access the history of claim payments. I was in a hurry and I accidentally selected Haitian Creole as my primary language. Well, “Judy”, the virtual Aetna claims assistant keep trying to communicate with me Haitian.

Friends and Guests, I have been monitoring all of the submissions to Pretty-Is’ fashion giveaway. I must say you are crowd of good taste. However, it takes a gay man to realize that NO-ONE has selected any wedding attire and we are in the MIDDLE of JUNE. Thus, I have selected this stunning splurge from Carolina Herrera. Please note the use of fruit blossoms for the bouquet. An inexpensive yet glittering solution for any bride.

My response:
Well, there’s nothing more pitiful than a single gal (like myself) posting a wedding dress as a splurge. gah. Of course, i already have one picked out, just in case i were to post one and here it is (i think i saved this picture from english muse blog–but, i didn’t save any other info–so, i apologize for not having the specific citation).

you've got the partOkay, I can’t resist. Have to put this up–C just emailed it to me and i Love it.
Here is what the catalog states:

Schwab’s Drug Store in Hollywood, 1938.
A young blonde sweater girl with smeared mascara looks up from a pile of twisted straws on the counter in front of her, waves to the soda jerk:
“Another chocolate malted, please.”
“Now Miss Turner, you know that’s your third.”
Meanwhile, in Beverley Hills, Paulette Goddard has locked herself in the bedroom and Charlie Chaplin is pounding on the door.
“I’ll never come out again,” she wails.
Lana and Paulette are not alone. Everyone from Kate Hepburn and Tallulah Bankhead to Susan Hayward
is miffed that you got the role of Scarlett O’Hara instead of them.
Mr. Selznick took one look at you in this dress and that was that.
Although it probably didn’t hurt that you also happened to be Vivien Leigh, too.
Movie Star Dress (No. 2358), exact reproduction of an original found in an L.A. vintage shop.
Low-calf cut of silk crêpe de Chine with slit at front hem.
Lightly padded cap sleeves, pleats and gathers down bodice from shoulders. Self belt with self-covered buckle.
Frankly, my dear, I do give a damn.
Sizes: 2 through 16. Color: Unambiguous Red.

C’s partner (whom we will call Rose)’s birthday party is this weekend. For the occasion, we received the following Evite. Rose is something of a queen-ophile. (Keep in mind it’s a bbq).

To All Subjects of Her Majesty:

Let it be known that by Official Order of Her Majesty the declaration has been issued mandating the celebration of Her Majesty’s Fiftieth Year. All subjects are hereby demanded to put forth attendance on the Twenty-fifth of the Fourth Month of the Year of Our Lord, 2009.
Her Majesty will be offering a private audience with those subjects most favored. By further Order of Her Majesty, champagne and heavy hour d’oeuvres will be offered throughout the Kingdom.

Here is an outfit similar to what I plan to wear. Although the party is queen-ish, it’s a bbq. So, how fancy can I get?

Hoping you can work your magic on this one… I need something to wear to a Daughters of the American Revolution meeting. I’ve been told the dress code is “Not ‘churchy’, not ‘cocktail’, but something in between.” What. The. Hell. Meetings are on Saturday afternoons – usually at a fancy-ish hotel or private country club-like establishment. Any guidance you can provide would be greatly appreciated! I love your site, especially because you feature items that real people can afford. I also love the recipes! I’m having a book swap party this weekend and making several of the dishes you’ve featured!

Easy. This event will consist mostly of older ladies who abide by the book when it comes to fashion. No white or linen before memorial day. Stockings a must but of course no open toe shoes or sandals. Nothing strappy. I suggest a very pretty floral silk knee length skirt with a matching shell and cardigan. It’s spring so stick with pastels. These broads will not be thrilled with black, gray, or anything modern. A strand of pearls and pearl posts a must.
Fragrance-wise, consider Quelque Fleurs or for a budget fragrance Kielhs Cucumber essence. No big bag but a small clutch.
Pinkish makeup and substantial powder. Hair pulled back with a very pretty comb or clip. Preferably one with pearl details.
