The View- A Royal Wedding Special

Zanna Roberts-Rassi, the Senior Fashion Editor at Marie Claire was asked to join the girls on The View for the Royal Wedding special yesterday to give all the viewers tips on how to get Kate Middleton's most iconic looks for less. Zanna and Liz Wheelis, her assistant and my good friend, worked their asses off to get those looks perfect and they pulled it off. I ran to Bloomingdales the night before to grab a pair of black wedges because the pair we had went missing!! Of course we ended up finding them but after the segment was over.  It was quite an adventure...
...I woke up at 4AM to be at the MC offices by 6:20AM. Great timing because I was up to catch the start of William and Kates wedding broadcasting which started at 4AM Eastern time. Once we were at the offices Liz and I made sure we had everything we needed ready to go by 6:50AM when the driver was there to pick us up to take us to the abc studios.  When we got there the wedding broadcasting was on every single television around the abc studios.
 I remember Zanna walking in so excited for the wedding. Her first words were about Kate's wedding dress and how gorgeous she looked.."So obvious a McQueen dress."
We all agreed that Pippa looked stunning in her bridesmaid dress which looked somewhat similar to Zanna's Marchesa wedding dress.

Behind the scenes before Rehearsal

 During rehearsal. We watched William and Kate's balcony kiss live on that big screen.
 A moment I will never forget
 The gorgeous Kate Middleton models. 
The brown tote the model on the left is holding is mine...just an FYI!

Grande SFH Soy Xhot-F Latte

Every morning on my way to work I stop my Starbucks and get my favorite drink. It's my one guilty pleasure/habit  that I can't seem to break-not that I want to. It's a Grande sugar-free Hazelnut, Soy, Extra hot, No-foam Latte. It's taken me a while to perfect this drink but I think I finally got it! P.s. This is one of the few times they've spelt my name right. I get Crista, Crysta, Chrysta, Christa, even Christah but never Krysta...I don't know why, I've stopped caring awhile ago.
I usually arrive to work early so I sit in the Cafe area of Hearst and prepare and center myself for the day ahead of me. I love going to work, absolutely LOVE it but relaxing when you can is key because the days are beyond crazy!

Fabulous Find-Metal accent

I spent this gorgeous, sunny weekend shopping around the city. I haven't been shopping in forever so it felt good to see all the new goodies that are out for the new season. After spending endless days and nights at Marie Claire, in the fashion closet, I have a whole new perspective of fashion, trends, and about style in general. When I spot these gorgeous shoes at H&M my heart dropped, literally. I fell in love and had to have them. They are just like the shoes that walked on the runway during Michael Kors' Fall 2011fashion show. LOVE
