Monday - SAGS, Cats & Victoria Beckham - That is quite a combo .....

Hi Lovelies,

There was much excitement for a Monday morning Chez Jools as I made the first enquiries into Wedding Gown fittings for a lovely friend. 
In a single conversation we have deviated from going for non-traditional Evening Gowns (it is a late afternoon wedding) to deciding we need to look at Vera Wang!!! - It is a Brides perogative to change her mind after all, so I will keep you posted on what option wins.

God, it really makes me want to get married again ........................ !

As promised, the SAGS bought some pretty amazing dresses to the red carpet last night. I have selected a few goodies to show you.

The incredible Sofia Vergara wore a Raspberry coloured Marchesa gown with pleated bustier. Its ok - She fills it just fine! Modern Family is my favourite show, and Gloria rocked the red carpet!

Emily Blunt wore a One Shoulder Silk Chiffon dress by Oscar de la Renta. If you are feeling flush you can purchase the exact dress RIGHT HERE!!!

Angelina Jolie wore a fluid liquid-look black gown by Jenny Packham

Kaley Cuoco (it is alot easier to just call her Penny from The Big Bang Theory!) stayed just about on the right side of frothy in a dress by Roman Keveza. She looks really cute.

Michelle Williams wore a striking red Valentino with lace overlay and a Lanvin Clutch

How Sexy does Lea Michelle (Rachel from Glee) look in this Versace number ......

Emma Stone looked amazing, flying the flag in Alexander McQueen, I think it was my favourite dress of the night as it wasn't floor length. Shoes and Clutch were also McQueen - Lucky Girl!

Natalie Portman has an amazing stylist (An Oscar helps too!). She managed to bag this gown from Giambattista Valli's Couture Spring/Summer 2012 Collection a mere 6 DAYS after it was shown on the catwalk in Paris.

Victoria Beckham released her latest collection today. It is a slightly cheaper version of her uber successful VB Line, called imaginatively "Victoria" lol!
The prints and styles are based on the character book Emily the Strange and feature Rainclouds, ruffles and Cats. I actually want one (Sorry Ali!) Prices start at £375 and go up to £900 .......

oh and did I mention, there are shoes !!!

A few of you have asked for a little look at more of my Chanel pieces. I took some pictures for you today (I know, I am just too good to you sometimes!) Hope you enjoy them x

I love this little vintage Chanel Vanity Case

Today, was very much Monday dress down!  Jools Wore this zippy top from Warehouse

with dark grey skinny jeans, KG boots and Black Balenciaga City ......

I have a shopping day with the lovely Clairey tomorrow, so will let you know if we make any purchases!

Thanks for reading x

Jools said...

Thanks Deb, shoes will be available shortly from Net a Porter, they are exclusive to Harvey Nics just for a few days x

Deborah said...

of course they'll be ridiculously expensive, but I like adding them to my fantasy NAP basket anyway :)

Jools said...

Everybody needs a fantasy basket ..... if only we could stop there though, before the THANKYOU FOR YOUR PURCHASE email arrives .........
