Wow, after 12 years working at a bridal magazine and a lifetime, I suppose, of wondering what my wedding would be like, I made the leap and tied the knot on August 26, 2010. It was a great wedding week, with family and friends flying out from around the country to lend their support and bust a few moves on the dance floor.

Choosing the Dress

This post is reblogged from August 18 edition of On This Day In Fashion.

I’ve been thinking a lot about fashion lately, but not the kind you might be thinking about. Visions of wedding clothes are taking up the bulk of sartorial space in my head these days, reason being that I’m getting married next week, thanks very much, at the prettiest little waterfront venue in Seattle.

After last week’s inaugural editor’s note, I received a few emails from people reaching out with comments and questions—which is great! As the site grows I hope more readers share their thoughts. In fact, one of our shorter term goals is to set up some kind of fashion Q&A center where readers can come and ask any fashion question they like, from style concerns, such as what shoes look best with caftans (not closed-toe black flats, Hilary) to shopping dilemmas, perhapswhere to find vintage YSL, and fashion history questions, such as when the very first Fashion Week happened (July 20, 1943). We’re working toward a few cool ideas and, as always, feel free to let us know if there’s anything you’d like to see or improvements we can make.
One question asked last week is one that’s asked most often: Where do all the stories come from? Publishing a story about something that happened in fashion every day of
