Ok, so I know some people are über excited about the new heath care reform bill, but dropping the f*bomb excited? In front of the world? In your ‘proper’ suit? Standing next to the President? Let me give you some etiquette 101 – Don’t drop the f*bomb in front of the world, in a suit, next to the President. Just don’t. No matter who you are, even the VP. Let’s get it together Biden.

So, apparently Marc Jacobs did not cast more full, beautiful, older women in his fall Louis Vuitton show to make a statement of any sort on the topic of too-skinny, fragile looking models. He is making a statement to clarify that he wasn’t making a statement. Thanks Mr. Jacobs. And why would it be such a problem if you were making a statement? Many people have applauded you for the fact that you substituted unhealthy girls for healthy looking, beautiful women. I guess everyone will have to take back their applause, which is a shame. Statements are good.

Getting married, or know someone who’s getting married? Do you or your friend live in the Boston area? Well, on Thursday April 1st get your pad and pen and get down to the Westin Copley Place for some bridal talk, tips and trends. Ted Daniels (event planner) hosts Bridal Buzz and will bring along a group of professionals ranging from photographers, florists, wedding planners, bakeries, musicians, etc. It seems like a very casual, informal environment to ask questions and get advice. They suggest RSVPing - ‘In order to maintain an intimate environment, space is limited. Please email Ted Daniels – Ted.Daniels@Westin.com to RSVP and confirm your attendance.’

Just recently heard about this website, http://renttherunway.com/ apparently you can look through a ton of options from all different top notch designers, then pick out what you want, they will send it to you when you need it (in two different sizes, just to be sure) and then when you’re done, you put it into their pre-paid bag and drop it in the mailbox (no dry cleaning necessary!)
*The only catch is currently they have so many members that they can’t accept new members which stinks. But, you better believe I put my name on the waiting list, and I will eagerly await my turn!
