Bling Bling

My favorite color is glitter.

I saw that on a little girl’s shirt at Target yesterday and I just about died laughing.

I met with Casey to pick up my custom sugar cookies in the morning, met with Ricki my event planner in the late afternoon, and in the evening, Ashley of Twice Loved Vintage came by to drop off some goodies for my wedding.  I had to practically pick my mouth up from the floor as I saw all of the fabulous vintage things she and her mother creates.  For the bling bling bride who appreciates something old, please contact her.

I think my mom and dad are sad that they no longer will be able to buy me things.  Well, that’s probably 110% untrue and it’s not that they won’t be able to or will ever stop, but I think they are giving me some last hurrah’s as their “responsibility” which may I add I have not been their responsibility since I left the house (other than college tuition, oh yeah and the two years I spent trying to make it in the TV industry in LA).  So, I had a field day at J. Crew, Victoria’s Secret and Brooks Brothers.

I’d like to know since when did I start liking the equestrian, prep school (I know, I’m too old for THAT), country club look?  I am obsessed with Brooks Brothers and Ralph Lauren.  Both stores are at Biltmore Fashion Square and I just gasp and want to hug and squeeze all the male mannequins in suits and check the female mannequins up and down and give them dirty looks because they look so hot.

I had a vintage hankie my mom gave me randomly, no story behind it, it could have been some eBay randomness but then I thought, hm.  Vintage hankie = vintage snot?  Uhhhh.  So, I bought new embroidered hankies from Brooks Brothers along with three different umbrellas for our engagement session and wedding incase it rains.  If it rains, I do not care.

You hear that clouds? I don’t care, I’m still marrying him with a big old smile on my face!
