Here Come the Guests: 9 Gorgeous Dresses for Wedding Guests

I love weddings. To me, they epitomize hope, dreams, and all the grand desires we have for the future. It’s a time when friends and loved ones come together to witness and celebrate hope and love. It’s a grand statement to the world that these two people have found their partner in crime, their best friend, and the one they want to wake up to for the rest of their life- no matter how bad the other person’s morning breath (or snoring) may be. 

Like people, love comes in many forms and shapes, all of them worthy of celebration. We all know that the challenge of finding celebration-worthy clothes that have you ready to dance the night (or afternoon) away while meeting the dress code of the wedding can be daunting, no matter what size you wear.

Have no fear! We’ve gathered here today to bear witness to a fabulous collection of dresses that look as amazing as you’ll feel wearing them, whether you’re richer or poorer (I’m looking at you, new college grads!).

“But Franki, Where’s the black?”  Most people see black and think of mourning- we’re celebrating love here! Rock those bright colors and gorgeous prints to those summer weddings! Feeling more demure? Go with a sophisticated neutral with a little bit of glam detailing. Everyone is saying orange is the new black, but if that is not your thing, navy is very acceptable for a wedding if you are more comfortable in a darker hue.

Ready to Rock: 12 Looks for Festival Season

I lived for about 13 years in Columbus, Ohio, and since 1972, June has meant that it’s time for ComFest. This long weekend of music, food, poetry and art meant long days dancing around and lounging in the grass with friends while enjoying new offerings from food vendors and brewhouses- and a new, giant pink mug every year.  The vendors and the amazing clothing were always one of my favorite parts of Comfest; since it was usually one of the first sweltering weekends of summer, the goal was to look good, but be as comfortable as possible. 

That combination of fashion purposes is one of my favorite things about festival clothing. Light, breathable fabrics come together with eye-catching patterns and colors to keep your clothing as bright as your mood. The beauty of most festivals is the amazing spirit of community- from events like ComFest to Coachella; Life is Beautiful to Burning Man, the underlying festival spirit the celebration of community in all of its forms.

The overwhelming air of acceptance at festivals is a balm to the soul- no matter who you are, what you’re wearing, how you’re shaped or what you look like, the music, the speakers, the celebration and the atmosphere are the primary focus, and the beauty inside everyone is brought out.

Come Fly With Me: 9 Packable, Mixable, Match-able Pieces

The day before Thanksgiving is traditionally known as the busiest travel day of the year, filled with insane scheduling and stress as we fly in and out of our favorite places.

One of the biggest challenges of travelling for the holidays, besides implementing a strategy for avoiding all the uncomfortable questions from your family about your love life (or lack thereof), your career (or lack thereof), and avoiding crazy Aunt Agnes, is packing a wardrobe that is appropriate for all the family gatherings, while still having a great outfit to wear out when the crew of friends that you’ve known since childhood decides to meet up for “Catch-Up Cocktails”. 

So, in honor of the upcoming Turkey Day festivities, I bring you a sampling of some amazing, packable items that mix and match perfectly, so you can pack in a carryon and avoid baggage fees.

Many of these styles are from Zappos’ own amazing private label (exclusive) brands. These pieces will all pack fabulously and are ready to wear fresh out of the bag! Pair them with a basic bootie, add a great necklace, and you are ready to rock it out.

I wish you all safe travels and the best of times celebrating with family and friends!
