We Are Moving...

I know it seems like we just moved...which we did. Last year at this time we moved out of NYC and to an apartment in Wyomissing, Pennsylvania. The plan was to stay here for a little and then buy a house. Well, WE DID JUST THAT! We bought a new house in Lancaster, PA...and we are so excited to move. We're not actually moving there until August 13th. Taking a few weeks to get everything moved over there. I made this video tour today...check it out (and my cameo in the bathroom mirrors).

In Love With Lime

I don't think I ever have a bad thing to say about Freida Pinto's style. She always looks so pretty and simply chic at every event she attends. The other day she showed up to her Rise of the Planet of the Apes premiere wearing this green Juan Carlos Obando dress.

The color is amazing on her skin tone. Started making me think of how much I love the color lime. It's such a fun color for the summer. Wear it in your accessories...or have it in the majority of your look. It's time you add some lime to your look too!!!


Dreamy Dresses

Lately it seems as though all I have been wearing is dresses. This is probably because I don't own any shorts except for gym shorts (crazy I know!). Maybe also because dresses have to be the easiest thing to wear. Just throw one on and you look great! Very little effort is needed.

Over the last few weeks here it's been 90-100+ degrees (often with a ridiculous amount of humidity)...so even when I put a dress on I feel gross. Just not pretty. One thing my wardrobe is definitely lacking is "dreamy dresses". Dresses that when you put them on feel girlie and pretty and like a princess. When I think of dreamy dresses I instantly think of ruffles, chiffon, and flowy designs.

Here are some of my favorite dreamy dresses out there right now. I really need to get on the ball and start filling my closet with these beautiful frocks.

I can't believe that it's Sunday already, this week has just flown by. Whooooosh. Off to see Harry Potter 8 part 2 right now and I really hope I don't end up bawling my eyes out.

Perhaps the perfect combo? And I know it's hard to believe but I don't own any Parisian stripes whatsoever. I'm constantly searching for them on my shopping trips but have yet to find the right one...

a bikini summer

For me, Summer will always be about bikinis, BBQs and the beach. I was practically living in my Victoria's Secret one up until a couple of days ago.

Bec & Bridge Spring/Summer 11 Campaign

"Think beautiful silks & viscose, crisp, femme, white lace and the Chrysler print- inspired by the New York landmark & luxe interiors of the seventies."

I'd slip into any of these babies but I can't take my eyes off the white Veruschka skirt and dress. The colour palette is just so yummy.

Belated Birthday Card

Yesterday I got this adorable birthday card from my friend Kristen. She got it for me for my birthday in March...but kept forgetting to send it. I got it yesterday...and as I say, better late than never! It was too cute. When I called her up last night she said that as soon as she saw the card she thought of SNAPSHOT FASHION! HAHA!

Just thought I'd share it with my readers...isn't it cute?

Do you ever see things that remind you of Snapshot Fashion? If so be sure to send them to Snapshot Fashion! I'd love to see them!  :-)

Would You Wear This?

Anne Hathaway recently showed up at White Tie and Tiara Ball in this Prada gown. The bows...the colors...the cut...is it terrible that I am hating a Prada design??? The top portion looks like a bathing suit in my opinion. Anne usually looks so stunning. I'm just not feeling this look AT ALL.

I'd love to hear your thoughts on this...
