What would Kate Middleton do?

Most women I know have much respect for the newest princess. She’s incredibly lovely but in a girl next door sort of way. We had all been pulling for her to get a proposal for the past 5 years or so. She seems very warm and friendly and girlfriend has an impeccable figure.
So, let’s ask ourselves. In a situation any girl might face, what would the stunning royal do?
I want to wear a short dress but it’s too short/cold out. WWKD? Kate would opt for sheer panty hose. Duh. Knee-high black boots for more casual situations.

It’s rainy or muddy. WWKD? Princess K would wear a hat and wellies, of course.

I’m attending a premier/gala/red carpet. WWKD? The princess would no doubt wear her hair down and curled, a long designer confection with an hourglass figure flattering silhouette. Let’s not forget the princely accessory in a dapper tux.

I want to look my best/something important is going on. WWKD? Turn to ISSA.

I’m going to the wedding of a friend or relative. WWKD? Does it need to be said? Suit dress + hat/fascinator. EVERYTIME.

I’ve got an incredible figure and it’s casual Friday. WWKD? Jeans my friend.

I’m on holiday at the beach. WWKD? Work out like a fiend, then white bikini – all the way.
My sister is really pretty and she’s always getting attention, people even say she looked better than I did at my wedding. WWKD? Stay mum, graciousness and grace always wins.

I’m getting married! WWKD? Follow tradition but not trends.


It seems like everyone I know and don’t know has suddenly put me under a crazy microscope. WWKD? Act like a lady. Stay in shape. Dress to flatter your figure. And most importantly, smile. (The happiest girls are always the prettiest girls.)

The WORST of the Derby hats

If you read this blog often, you know I have an affinity for hats. I love hats and next to the royal wedding, the Kentucky Derby is the mecca of big hats. However, I only spotted B-list celebs and only one hit the mark.


I honestly can’t believe people are a) still inviting KG to parties or b) people are still photographing her or c) websites are still publishing her photos.

Maria – I like your fascinator but the whole look is too much. It’s not the royal wedding, sis.

Oh no…Miranda Lambert – everything you have on looks like it came from a clearance rack at the buckle. I could have allowed it if you had worn cute heels, but the boots – ick!

Aubrey O’Day – not as bad as you could have been, I’ll give you that…

Oh, spoke too soon!  Aubs did a lil outfit change! Oh my…

Erin Andrews, this is just foul. That hat I could deal with…maybe paired with a LBD? But the pants? Girl you are thin! These make you look like Kirstie Alley! And the shoes…there is NO EXCUSE.

Salt & Pepa….

Vicki Gunvalson, if Miranda L. got her “getup” at the Buckle, you got yours at Target.

Jordin Sparks, I don’t so much have beef with your hat as I do your leggings. WTF. It is the derby.


There really was a lack of appropriately dressed peeps at this shindig. In fact I saw 2 that I appreciated. One was  Marisa Miller. First of all, it’s really hard to look bad with that body. Secondly, although I don’t particularly love the monochromatic look in beige, I do like her Great Gatsby-ish, 1920’s take on Derby Day.

Well done, Kate Walsh
