Day Weddings, Baby Showers, Bridal Luncheons, Oh My!

I love all this summer’s print dresses, but nobody wants to see themselves in the same print in every "event" picture of summer- or be that person pointed out in the back of someone’s wedding pictures a few years from now when minimalism is back, holding a cocktail in a giant goofy flowered trapeze dress.

Here’s a few dresses that will hold their own through a day wedding, a baby shower- whatever you’re up against. Each is long enough to keep your dignity on the dance floor and has a neckline that won’t have the bride giving you the stink eye. Click the title of the post for the listed brands and locations.

Benji And Joel Madden Talk About Their Ladies


Benji and Joel Madden
sat down with E! Televisions Daily 10. In the interview, the Madden brothers open up to Michael Yo about staying away from the paparazzi, what makes a good father, spending time with family and making sure Harlow is brought up to be a confident, smart woman.

Joel says a big difference between him and his twin brother are their lifestyles:

“We’re very different. Benji’s always on the fast track and I’m at home with my family. Me and Nicole are just home every night. A big night for us is her mom watching the baby and we go out for sushi."

Joel says the relationship between his twin brother and Paris Hilton caught him by surprise:

“It’s a very odd coupling. I didn’t see it at all… I didn’t think she’d be into him."

Regarding which of them they think will tie the knot first, Benji says:

“We’ll have to flip a coin on that one.”

Joel continues: “I have no clue.”

Regarding a future marriage to Paris Hilton, Benji says:

“You will know when we’re engaged… I’m gonna buy that rock man…I’m gonna buy that big one!"

Protective Uncle Benji will not lay out the welcome mat for any rock stars who come calling for his baby niece Harlow when she’s old enough to date:

“Uncle Benji’s gonna buy a new shot gun!”

The complete interview will be broadcast on Michael Yo’s
satellite radio show “Yo on E!” Wednesday, June 18 and Thursday,
June 19 (4:30 p.m., ET/1:30 p.m., PT) on Sirius Channel 107 and XM Channel 162.
