Poodles in the Chasing Fireflies Catalog

posted by:
My friend Jen gets a catalog from Chasing Fireflies. I hadn't heard of this clothing before but they have the cutest dresses and suits for little girls and little boys! Everything is so adorable! The catalog Jen showed me featured Poodles so she wanted me to see it. Look at these perfect Poodle models:





These dresses and suits are perfect for weddings, too. I would love to see ring bearers and flower girls in these clothes. I have probably seen Chasing Fireflies in all of the weddings I've photographed - I just didn't realize it.


Melania Trump's Inauguration Gown

posted by:
I am SO excited to see what soon to be First Lady Melania Trump picks for her inauguration gown. And will she have more than one gown? There is the Big Apple Ball and two other balls that the Trumps are supposed to be attending. Will Melania change gowns?

It is interesting that the Clintons attended 14 inaugural balls and the Obamas attended 10. That is just nuts! I would prefer just one or maybe two - tops!

Here is what I would LOVE to see Melania wear for her 2017 inauguration gown. This Jonathan Simkhai gown is sexy and feminine! I love the feathers. I love that it is white (Melania loves to wear white!). And I love the trumpet sleeves (another fashion trend the soon to be first lady likes and I think she really has this trend taking off!)

And if she wanted something a little sexier (which is possible - she has an AMAZING body) and wanted to ignore all of the critics that say she should dress more modestly then I think this Prabal Gurung dress would look awesome on Melania! I love that it is Melania's signature color on the front - white. And it has a dark side - literally! SO beautiful!

My Inauguration Gown

posted by:
This is my 2017 Inauguration Gown! Well, it is the one I would pick if I was invited to the Big Apple Ball. So far, I haven't heard from President Elect Trump or soon to be First Lady Melania. But they still have 48 hours and I do accept last minute invitations.


Monique Lhuillier Off-the-Shoulder Ruched Mikado Gown

When we first moved to Washington, DC I loved browsing the different Macy's stores. The one downtown has all day dresses, pearls and suits. Almost every dress I can picture Michelle Obama wearing. And the pantsuits were all made for Hillary Clinton. And then out in Montgomery County the Macy's has a huge section for floor length ball gowns. Year round. This is a town where a lot of floor length gowns are worn! There are always fundraisers and balls and galas. In Florida, gala meant you could wear a short black casual dress. Not in Washington, DC!

And just in case the stunning red Monique Lhuillier gown is sold out when I get my last minute invitation, I do have two backup gown options for the inauguration.
