BLUEFLY_Swim_sale_Shoshanna_Letarte_Vix_French_Connection_Despi_Trina_Turk.jpg
It’s time for a new swim suit. The one you’ve been rocking the past few summers is faded and pilling, and even you’re tired of seeing it as you click through your Facebook photos of vacations past. Bluefly to the rescue!
For the next few hours, surf our swim shop and pick up one (or three) new styles to put into your summer beach, pool, and vacation rotation. We suggest a one-piece for marathon beach days that will stretch into dinner and drinks (they morph into sexy tanks when you pair them with the right bottoms); a bikini for showing off your glowing summer color; and a coverup for that imaginary White Party / Amalfi coast yacht outing you prepare for every summer. Either way, you’ll look amaze.

Diane Von Furstenberg’s Pewter Leather Slingback Platform Wedges: Fly or ‘Bye?

diane_Von_Furstenberg_pewter_slingback_platform_Wedges_blueflys_blog_flypaper.jpg
It’s all about the vintage-inspired wedge this spring; and between the titillating height of the four inch surrealist (cubist?) heel and the burnished metallic color, (not to mention the designer label) these Diane Von Furstenberg pewter leather ‘Oasis’ slingback platform wedges are totally fly in my book! I can so see these with a maxi dress or flared jeans and tee. How would you rock it?

Which of These Gowns Would You Wear to the Royal Wedding After Party?

That is, if you were invited to Kate and William’s wedding reception. (The list was pared down from 1,900 at the ceremony to 650 at the lunchtime reception hosted by Queen Elizabeth; and who knows what the list situation is at the after party Prince Harry has planned for the newlyweds.) But since this is such a fairytale day, we think fashionistas are allowed to dream: Which of these Princess-worthy, floor sweeping evening gowns would you wear to the post-Westminster Abbey nuptial festivities?

Diamonds & Pearls: Kate Middleton’s Royal Wedding Bling of Choice

Kate_Middleton_Royal_Wedding_Cartier_tiara_Bluefly_blog_Flypaper-570.jpg
Kate Middleton’s something borrowed was the Cartier tiara Queen Elizabeth loaned her (the tiara was presented to Queen Elizabeth by her mother on her 18th birthday, according to the Official Royal Wedding blog), but the diamond and pearl drop earrings she wore were a gift from her parents Michael and Carol Middleton, according to E! An understated, yet totally luxe choice for England’s new Duchess of Cambridge — and you (remember: today, EVERYONE’S a princess). Treat yourself!

Collective Sigh: Kate Middleton is a Princess Duchess Now; Wore Sarah Burton for Alexander McQueen!

William_Kate_Middleton_married_Duke_Duchess_of_Cambridge_Royal_Wedding_Bluefly_blog_Flypaper-570.jpg

They did it! Kate (in McQueen) and Will are now the Duchess and Duke of Cambridge.

The ceremony was fantastic! Kate Middleton seemed to be having an out-of-body experience as she floated to the altar, and when she finally got there William whispered something to her that made them both smile. Throughout the service, they both looked like they were about to burst into laughter, throw-up, and cry. The ring seemed similarly freaked out as Will gave it several forceful thrusts before it finally slid onto her finger.

Kate’s Cartier tiara on loan from the Queen is not part of the “crown jewels” collection — apparently, no one can wear the crown jewels as they belong to the people of England

Kate’s sister Pippa was the perfect maid of honor/lady in waiting,dutifully straightening Kate’s train at every turn. In her white gown, also by Sarah Burton for Alexander McQueen, she looked like a bride herself. White — or anything close to it — on anyone other than the bride is generally taboo, but every girl in her party was decked in white/ivory which seems to be a royal tradition as the bridesmaids in Princess Diana’s wedding wore white too. Or maybe it was just these two brides’ choice.

Pippa Middleton & a few of the too-cute flower girls

With so much speculation about what Kate would wear — long sleeves or strapless, McQueen or Bruce Oldfield — and whether it would measure up to Princess Diana and Prince Charles’ nuptials, what was so beautiful about the Royal Wedding is how clear it was, to me at least, that in spite of all the pomp, circumstance, and splendor Kate and William were just a girl and a boy getting married. A girl in an ivory tulle Sarah Burton for Alexander McQueen dress with a lace bodice handmade by the Royal School of Needlework and trimmed in handmade flowers. And a Cartier halo tiara, on loan from Queen Elizabeth, that looked to be diamonds set in platinum. A girl who will be the Queen of England.
UPDATE: More deets on Kate’s dress & Pippa’s too on the Official Royal Wedding website
