Kate's Look for Less: Meeting the Obamas

I never imagined that Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge would be in a photo op with Michelle Obama.I hate Michelle Obama's style and politics, so this photo was particularly sweet. It shows how easily class and understated style can upstage fussy and expensive items. Kate, err Catherine looks comfortable and confident. Michelle looks like she's playing princess dress up....more

The Victory of Love And Common Sense Over Prejudice

Many stories have been written about the equal rights of people. Comparing history and present gives the mankind hope. Regardless of country of origin, race, sex or age or aristocratic roots, being it at work or in private life, we are putting back on the table discussion about personality traits, rather than personal origin. We are becoming more liberal than our ancestors were. We are giving more value to the vision of living fulfilled life vs....more

The Problem with Princesses

Living in the UK: An American Catches Royal Wedding Fever

I blame Shakespeare and PBS. I'm unashamedly, unapologetically and unabashedly Royalist. Honestly, I think most Americans are. For all our independence, rebellion and egalitarian principles, in our hearts, we all love pomp, circumstance, ceremony, history, heritage and glamour. We’re suckers for romance and fairy tale endings. And, who doesn’t love a wedding?...more

How the English Empire Accidentally Created the Wedding Industry

www.TheFeministBride.comWe can thank the British for many things: the colonization of much of the world,not passing on their dentistry or cooking skills, our accents, the postage stamp, Mr. Bean, the pay toilet and gravity, just to name a few. But one thing we have never given them credit for is creating the wedding industry. Yes, it’s true.
