Nicole Richie's Wedding

I have been anxiously waiting for some of these photos like a kid on Christmas. Finally, a glimmer of Nicole Richie's one of three wedding gowns designed by Marchesa. The wedding took place this weekend at Lionel's Mansion in LA and exchanged rings by jeweller Neil Lane during the winter-themed ceremony.
Hello!: Lionel Richie's enormous estate in Beverly Hills, Los Angeles, where Nicole Richie and Joel Madden's wedding took place last night

The couple's 2-year-old daughter, Harlow, was the flower girl  and son, Sparrow, 1 was the ring bearer while Nicole's best friend Masha Gordon was chosen as maid of honor.

Nicole walked down the aisle in a $20,000 custom-made Marchesa gown and then changed into two others.Celebrity hairdresser Byron Williams of Byron & Tracey in Beverly Hills styled her locks.

VIP guests: Celebrity stylist Rachel Zoe, who is pregannt with her first child, attended the ceremony with husband Rodger Berman
 Celebrity stylist Rachel Zoe, who is pregnant with her first child, attended the ceremony with husband Rodger Berman along with Gwen Stefani and Gavin Rosdale. DJ Samantha Ronson, reality TV stars Khloe Kardashian and Kris Jenner are all said to have also attended the affair, along with Nicole's godfather, Quincy Jones.

The guests feasted on winter treats like home made butternut squash ravioli, filet mignon, truffle mushrooms risotto and seared ahi tuna. Lionel’s outdoor area had allegedly been transformed for the ceremony, with white chairs and tables and an impressive dance floor had been constructed over the pool so they could dance on water. Pretty cool! The makeup is FLAWLESS, love the hair, and adore the classic ultra girl gown. More to come...............

The 2010 Girl's Gift Guide

     Every year we stress, plan, and spend endless amounts of energy all for the big day, Christmas. It can't hurt to have a little inspiration. This year, that is what we intend to do. Gifts should mean something and in today's society, it's hard to make time to find the perfect present. From video junkies to fashionistas, it is all covered. Read on for some tips and thoughtful ideas on how to make this Christmas stress-free and inspiring!
     Jewelry is always the way to go when giving any woman a present. Even the biggest tomboy will admit, diamonds are a girl's best friend. This year, break out from the typical strand of pearls and go the extra mile with these bracelets from Brooklyn Thread, exquisite stand out rings from T.Plowdowski, and unexpected delicates for the animal lover from bluGrn design.
     Clothing can always be a tough thing to give to a loved one especially if you don't quite know their taste. A cashmere sweater is always a classic present on the big day so why not give the classic and Oprah's favorite with the Ralph Lauren Oprah Cable Sweater in fine Italian cashmere.
     There is a budding makeup artist in most women so start off any lady with the best foundation out there, Armani Silk Fluid Luminous Foundation. Whether a beginner or pro, you can't go wrong with this product seriously presenting the look of flawless skin. Add a few more favorites and stuff it all into a genius carrying case from Sephora.
     For the gadget girl, the IPhone 4G is the perfect accessory. With a 5 mega pixel camera and over a million apps, there is nothing you can't do. There is also a Face Time option allowing other 4G users to talk face to face. Insane!
     Every gal loves UGGS even if they will not admit it. Why not try something different in style without sacrificing the comfort? The UGG Croquette Clog is the way to go. As cozy as a slipper, step outside and look adorable in some skinny jeans with just the right amount of fur showing through.
     For a friend roots candles are amazing! The whole line is named after Boston areas and landmarks and mixed together with the freshest scents. They fill an entire room with a gorgeous blend you won't find anywhere else.
     For the baker, get the book Cake Pops by the famous chef Bakerella. Blake Lively is a fan of these adorable treats!
     For the bride-to-be, why not get her Fortune Telling Book for Brides revealing how to bring all things good to a wedding celebration. 
     For your guy, why not bring him back to his childhood and keep him busy for hours with this Mini Foosball Table. Not only is portable so you don't have to decorate a whole room around it, but the kids can play too allowing for countless hours of peace.    
     For Mom, these classic Betty Crocker Recipe Cards are sure to allow for plenty of fun and creativity in the kitchen. So classically original!
For Dad, what is better than a Jonathan Adler Smoking Pipe Match Holder? Such a unique idea! He will feel extra manly.
     Always acceptable, beautiful stationary is one of the most perfect gift choices. One can never have too much and nothing is more personal. Try these from Walk Up Press. They are from a design studio started in Brooklyn and all the stationery is designed and letterpress printed by hand.
 Have fun and don't stress. It should be about the personal thought because that is what make people smile. Happy Holidays!

Alexa Chung Bat T for Madewell Hits Today

I simply adored the Alexa Chung for Madewell collection. Luxurious silk shirts, trendy shorts, and amazing dresses were all a part of Alexa's line. For those who don't know Madewell, read up. Madewell is J.Crew's little sister headed by the infamous J.Crew maven Jenna Lyons. It's a little younger and fresher and the jeans are their specialty. Katie Holmes was seen shopping there last year with Suri on Newbury.
Alexa Chung, British style icon, debuted her line in the fall and it flew off shelves. She has now added the longer version of the Bat Tunic that was never seen in stores premiering today at a mere $58“Wear with tights and a grandad cardigan this winter or wear it to bed so you can look ace even as you sleep,” Alexa says. It's just bat crazy!
