Royal Inspiration

It’s official: Prince William Arthur Philip Louis of Wales married Catherine Elizabeth Middleton this morning in a ceremony that was watched around the globe. The stunning bridal gown, which was designed by Sarah Burton for Alexander McQueen, was reminiscent of one worn by another famous royal: Princess Grace of Monaco. Given the bride's classically elegant sense of style, I suppose this should have come as no surprise.

The Perfect Tank

Every summer, I renew my search for the ideal tank top. For me that means a tank that is substantial enough not to be sheer, that holds up well through many washes, and hugs my curves. And in the interest of total honesty, let me also say that I prefer one that has a scoop neck and can be worn with a normal bra. Tall order, isn’t it?

Well, my search has finally come to an end with the discovery of the L.L.Bean Double L® Rib-Knit Tee, Tank. It's everything I’ve been looking for and then some. At a mere $14.50 each, you can buy one in every color.

(And let us not forget, L.L.Bean now offers free shipping on all orders, regardless of price. Who doesn’t love that?)
