Carousel: Week Ending 18th December 2009

This is a super-cute, super-girly Carousel, even moreso than usual! Lots of things gathered up just for you. Yum. Let’s begin!

She has had some flack for it, but I actually really like this video of Lindsay Lohan & no, it is not safe for work!

I discovered Frocktastic the other day & it’s brilliant! It’s basically a huge database of dresses, & you can filter by colour, price, most popular, etc. Frocktastic is a girl’s (new) best friend? Perhaps!

This is the most amazing bachelorette party I have ever seen & is so inspiring & beautiful. (It features the photo at the top of this post!) The official spread is at Utterly Engaged & I think all the pictures are here. I love this photo.

Kim Falconer’s horoscopes are cool.

I’m also really obsessed with Rock ‘n Roll Bride, it is so cute & run by a pink-haired beauty! It is basically a big eyeball thrill of cute couples in love. Some favourites: Big Rock Candy Mountain is the sweetest 1950’s wedding ever. Anarchy in the UK features a fantastic dress, a tattooed bride & a white Morris Minor. Moulin Rouge is exactly what it sounds like. & Cowboys & Indians is all about the rad boots, baby girl.

It Made My Day is so good. The perfect antidote to FML.

The Noughtie List: the 2000s in Review from I enjoyed 2000-2009 in fashion, the short-lived trends of the decade (though most of those trends weren’t too short), best rock albums of the 2000’s, the decade’s 50 most important recordings, & popular baby names. Madison at #2! Naming trends sure have changed. Remember when it was all Sarahs & Jennifers?

HABILLÉES POUR L’ÉTÉ 2010 (DRESSED UP FOR SUMMER 2010) covers the Spring 2010 collections in New York and Paris, with Mademoiselle Agnès taking a particular interest in spotlighting the next generation of designers. In New York, she finds much cause for excitement in the likes of Proenza Schouler, Joseph Altazurra, Jason Wu, Thakoon and several others. Then it’s on to Paris, where Mademoiselle Agnès sets herself the daunting task of attending as many runway shows as possible; not only the heavy hitters, but also the perennially individualistic and the relatively low-profile. Get behind the scenes access to collections by Karl Lagerfeld for Chanel, Marc Jacobs for Louis Vuitton, John Galliano for Dior, and many more…” Also, it is an hour long & you can watch the whole thing online.
