Wedding; Dad tied the knot.

Last month was chaotic, from wedding dress shopping to photo frame decorating we all jumped on board to help my Dad and, now Wife, prepare to tie the knot!

Having slightly neglected my blog over the last few months I felt I owed it the low down of the day.. or more importantly, the outfit!

Fashion; Going for gold.

With Britian frantically flapping about scraping a Gold in the Olympics this week the only gold I find myself fixated on is the Worlds Most Expensive Bra.

Moulded out of 18 carat gold and encrusted in 500 carats of diamonds, the $1 million solid-gold brasserie at the Birmingham Estate and Jewelry Buyers, which took over three months to design and took a crew of 40 workers almost a full year to make, is much more than just an article of clothing. The major design difference between the million-dollar Victoria’s Secret bras is that retailer’s designer bras have ‘fabric’ in them and the diamonds are kind of embellished into the fine fabric. Whereas, this particular gold bra created by the jewelry store owner Anthony Aubry, sports no fabric at all, as it’s crafted out of 750 grams of solid gold.

Rate or Slate girls, but if i’d of won the Millions this weekend its safe to say there’d be one less bra on sale..
