EXACTLY what to wear when you're wedding dress shopping!
Yes, this matters! Trust me!
by Kim Fusaro
As I mentioned in Friday's Week in Review, this dress would be particularly excellent to wear when you're wedding dress shopping. I know it feels silly to put a lot of thought into your shopping outfit, but trust me. During a long (long, long, long) day of shopping, you'll be happier if properly outfitted. So here's EXACTLY what to wear.
To the right: Tommy Hilfiger Three-Quarter Sleeve Chambray Dress from Macy's, $59.99.
1) A dress without a lot of bells and whistles. You'll probably shop multiple boutiques, so having a dress you can get in and out of with minimal assistance will help speed things up.
2) Tights. You won't be able to wrestle your way into every wedding dress on your own, which means you'll need someone in the dressing room with you. This might be your mom or your maid of honor or a sales assistant—or all of the above, if it's one of those HUGE dressing rooms. Tights will give you at least SOME sense of modesty. And hey, if they suck in your tummy a little, it's only going to make the dresses look better! (Don't worry. You won't be able to see the tights through the dresses!)

3) A strapless bra. This will also help you maintain a little modesty, even if you don't plan on wearing a bra on your wedding day. But wedding dresses generally look better with a bra, IMO, unless you're very small-chested.
4) Flats. If you're wearing heels on your wedding day, definitely pack a pair. (Or take your chances on the boutique's samples. Ick.) But don't schlep from store to store in stilettos. Save your feet—and your stamina—by wearing flats between try-ons.

While the debut of Karl Lagerfeld’s Chanel No.5 bottle bag surely adds yet another item to many a fashion follower’s sartorial bucket list, it also got us thinking about one of the brand’s other, ever-present offerings: the 2.55. The bag was first dreamed up by Gabrielle “Coco” Chanel in the early 1920s when, ever-practical and tired of having to carry her bag in her hands, the designer took inspiration from soldiers’ packs and incorporated an extended strap into her own carryall. After World War II, she launched the quilted bag in earnest, in February 1955 putting a long, chain strap model forth (hence the name) and captivating women ever since.
2013 was a year full of firsts for me: I ran my longest distance (12 miles), learned how to cook and landed my dream job here at Lucky! Something else that surprisingly ranked high up on my list of personal accomplishments? Mastering a fishtail braid. I know what you’re thinking: After years of seeing all sorts of fancy braids on the runways and red carpet, a fishtail now seems like it’s one of the most basic styles. But no matter how many how-tos I read, my fingers just didn’t want to cooperate. It was finally thanks to Lucky’s video series where stylist David Diegez showed an easy video tutorial when I figured it out.
