Remember when I posted back in March wanting a long-sleeved wedding dress for my November wedding and having a hard time finding one? Well I have a feeling that's all about to change.
Thank you Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge and Sarah Burton for bringing long-sleeves back! I completely think that (the former) Kate Middleton's wedding dress is going to have a huge impact on bridal trends and I couldn't be happier. Sleeves are classy, classic, and everyone can pull it off, unlike the ubiquitous strapless trend. If you've got some sewing skills, Harlem Loves dug up this great Vogue sewing pattern for making a similar dress, influenced by Grace Kelly's wedding gown.
As for the royal wedding, did you watch? I caught a few moments of the processional to Buckingham Palace before I went to work, then came home afterwards and gorged on Internet recaps. They seem like a very sweet, normal (well as normal as can be in that situation) couple.
