Duchess of Perfection

So, I know this isn't exactly modest by halachic standards, but at least she's not baring a midriff. With that said, this is one of my absolute favorite Kate Middleton looks in a really long time. She not only exudes elegance and class, but she manages to make the most stellar outfits look like a demure attempt at looking good. She isn't overly coiffed, overly done up, over-dressed, or over-done; she is simply perfection. No doubt this dress is already sold out. PS Totally loving her pinned up. Classic beauty.

Modest Hollywood

Yes yes, I know I have been out of the bogging business for quite a few weeks now, but I've been enjoying this spectacular and wonderful summer. But that's no excuse for ignoring the fabulous Hollywood women and celebrities who have been galavanting across Hollywood. Are you as in love with all the color and prints as I am? Are you impressed by the fun and flirty silhouettes? I simply adore them all. My personal OAKie goes to Jordana Brewster who embodies summer style and effortless chic! Love it.

Correct Me If I'm Wrong, But...

Alright peeps, I don't know if it's jsut me ornot, but there is something freaky going on in Hollywood, and it's looking a lot like Hasidism. This week, a one Mr. Jared Leto was caught walking on the beach in a ubiquitously Chasidic Black Hat, as well as a tzizit looking tank-top over his clothing (granted it says MALIBU on it, but still). Woah. I think Jared Leto and Lana Del Ray need to get together ASAP and have pretty Chasidic babies together. Don't tell me you don't see it! What do you think??

Correct Me If I'm Wrong, But...

...Lana Del Ray is looking mighty frum here. I mean, we're talking Upstate-In-Monroe/I-Jog-In-A-MooMoo/Yes-That's-My-Fake-Hair-Peeking-Out-From-An-Overly-Decorated-Scarf frum. Don't tell me you are not getting the double head covering vibe here?? Aside from that slit, Lana has all the trappings of a an uber-frum Kiryas Joel mama. Discuss.

Modest Hollywood

I know, I know. I have been majorly MIA, but ladies, it's summer! I've been totally having fun and enjoying the sun and this freakishly awesome heat. But nothing can stop me from the modest fashions that have been dominating the red carpets, and these past few weeks have been no exception. The reigning queen is no doubt Helen Mirren, because any woman of her age who can pull of that purple number deserves to wear a crown. I am positively loving all the color and all the white that made the red carpet statements; best of all, the loud ad fun prints are all over these ladies and they all look so fantastic! Make sure you embrace all the trends!
