Cute dance scene
Thursday, July 7, 2011
I'm such a sucker for old movies. I find them a lot more interesting than anything current. I happened to catch the movie "Cover Girl" on TCM. I instantly fell in love with the beautiful costumes Rita Hayworth wore. The movie is definitely worth watching for those who love glamour.
Rusty Parker (Rita Hayworth) is a dancer at nightclub owned and operated by her boyfriend Danny McGuire (Gene Kelly). She learns of open auditions to be the Golden Wedding Girl for Vanity's 50th Anniversary issue, and eventually gets the coveted position. Her newfound popularity puts the nightclub on the map, but also puts strain on her relationship with Danny. He opts to not stand in her way, intentionally arguing with her one day so she will split up with him. Rusty's continuing rise to stardom leads to a courtship from the wealthy Noel Wheaton (Lee Bowman) and a Broadway show, but she still cannot get Danny off her mind.

She finally got her man, but honestly I think he's the lucky one. She seems to be quite an interesting and determined lady. I was bombarded with television programs all about the "royal couple" last night. I can't say that I paid all that much attention to them over the years, but she did hold my attention a few times when it seemed the press was bit harsh to her (I always wondered what the motive was behind it). Giving her names like "waity katie" or mentioning her weight. Maybe she was just "in training" all along. Being a public figure is the eye of the media isn't an easy task and definitely isn't for the thin skinned.
I thought William looked very handsome in his Irish Guards uniform, and Kate's dress was gorgeous, but one had to question her choice. Why of all people would you choose a style of dress so close to a woman who died tragically in a car accident, much like the woman who's ring you're wearing?! Maybe she's of the morbid type. Also, William asked for Kate's title to be "princess", but the Queen didn't approve. Kate's official title is now the "Duchess of Cambridge."
Anyhow, I wish them all the best with their marriage. They look like such a lovely couple. Congratulations!

I was invited a few years ago to be a bzzagent. How it works is based on surveys you take, you get invites to certain campaigns. I've recently been invited to a Barely there Bra campaign, Glade Spring cleaning, Sebastian Hair products, as well as Nioxin hair products campaigns. There's nothing like receiving free quality products in the mail. It always surprises me when they finally arrive. All that's asked in return is you review the products and spread the word. They even give you coupons to give out and a code name too, very secret agent-ish.

Who can forget this gorgeous gown?
Lovely spring will be upon us shortly and with it comes the hectic wedding season. My favorite part is the dresses...and who wouldn't love to have a Vera Wang dress? Well, now you can. Vera Wang has designed a more affordable line of Wedding dresses for David's Bridal. How exciting!
How gorgeous is this dress?!
Some of the dresses look like simple evening gowns which is great. The dresses are so affordable (priced from $600-$1,400) you may just want to buy one for a special evening out.
