...to this, in the blink of an eye.
As I mentioned earlier, this past weekend was centered around HRH's graduation festivities and the celebration kicked off with an informal crab feast at my sister's beach house.Congratulations Hilbils and the entire WPS class of 2009. Best of luck in South Carolina! And, please, leave the Blahnik's at home and return with all your teeth intact...
Babe, who was away on business, remarked that Hilary looked like one of the Soprano's in her head to toe sweats when he saw these pics. I told him the sea air had been chilly and "sweats" had pretty much been de rigueur for the soiree with everyone eventually pilfering the hostesses collection of Soprano's duds.
The day of graduation involved an eleventh hour shoe switch from strapless, 3 inch Manolo Blahnik's to a pair of Aunt Mandy's Ralph Lauren sandals that strapped securely around the ankle. Emma had an unfortunate "incident" a couple of months ago, involving a pair of 4 inch Blahnik's, resulting in the loss of her front teeth so both girls, and their mother, are now, understandably, a little Blahnik shy.
Hilary's dress was by BCBG and the silk flower hair tie was a J. Crew Outlet find.
Pretending to ham it up with the school mascot, the Mallard, but really looking for any ole excuse to display her new David Yurman graduation present. Puhleeze...who do you think you inherited those bag of tricks from Paris?
Along with receiving the largest academic scholarship in her graduating class, Hilary was also recognized for being a member of the National Honor Society, the Spanish National Honor Society, the Art National Honor Society and has been on the Headmaster's academic list every term since 6th grade. That bag of tricks she did not inherit from moi.
