Glitz and glam was the theme of the Emmy's red carpet this year, as we spotted glitter and sequined gowns in every shape, size, and color this year. Christina Hendricks, Jennifer Carpenter, and Jayme Mays (pictured above) were spotted in gorgeous bridal-worthy sparkling dresses, and we couldn't help but shop around for similar styles. (more…)
Fall is just around the corner (t-minus 3 days), and this season, we encourage brides to go feather crazy. The trend has evolved from the runway (from the likes of Oscar de la Renta and Ralph Lauren) to retail in the form of glamorous, Old-Hollywood inspired gowns, shoes, hair accessories that add drama to any wedding hair 'do, and more.

As we learned from Grazia today, apparently even Stella herself is going to try to squeeze into items from her just-launched GapKids collection. Grazia takes things one step farther, figuring out, on camera, exactly what can be worn by your average adult lady. See all the Stella McCartney for Gap pieces on MomFinds to figure out what works best for you.

Check out the entire Stella McCartney for Gap Kids line to see what you'd want to buy this year. Things went even better with the shoes: Overall, we're left hoping Stella will be so kind as to bestow a fully-grown Gap line on all of us over the age of 13. In the meantime, we'll try to stay content with our own picks for blazers, trenches, and flats.
Must-Reads: Sorry for the wordplay, but we really are mad for Mad Men's style. And sticking with our madness, we found some great, contemporary-looking dresses that are still thematically in keeping with Betty Draper's look. Julie & Julia hit theaters, and as expected, we were bowled over by Meryl Streep's performance as Julia Child. Less expected, we were also really into her great classic style. The Sartorialist's aptly-named book, The Sartorialist, came out this week, and we need to go pick up a copy for endless sartorial inspiration.
