Random Tidbits

Things that are currently flipping my skirt up, just because I feel like sharing:
  • That infamous black dress worn by Lady Diana Spencer during her engagement (you remember, the cleavage-y one) was recently sold at auction.  I thought this piece, interviewing the owner of the auction house, was a fascinating behind-the-scenes look.  Bonus pic of the dress and other Emanual items that went on the auction block.  [Fashionista]
  • And, saving the best for last:  MORE WEDDINGS!!!
    • Our favorite little engaged flower from Victoria's wedding, Tatiana Blatnik, will wed Prince Nikolaos on August 25th in Greece.  The most urgent question of all: will this be a tiara event?  Well, ok, that's the second most urgent question, but we don't have any hope of learning what the dress looks like before the big day.
    • And another shining star, Charlene Wittstock, will also get her day in the sun - Albert has finally announced their engagement.  Why this announcement couldn't have come last week to save poor Charlene the awkwardness of being "just" a girlfriend at a royal wedding is beyond me, but I won't complain - another amazing wedding dress is in the works!
