ANYway, we showered the bride-to-be this past weekend, and did it in 1950s style! I dressed her, her sister, and myself to the nines! The 50s is my favorite era in style--so femenine, and somehow classy and flirty all at once--so I had a lot of stuff in my closet to share!!! I loved seeing the peices get used.
Ready for photo-overload? I'm not sure I am, but here goes:
First, a few shots of my outfit. It was a hit. :) People kept saying that if I had red hair, I would look just like Lucy from 'I Love Lucy.' Fabulous. :) (I slept in curlers the night before: that's how dedicated I was to this! haha)
Then, a shot of me getting in an hysterical fight with the doggy:
She goes ape if someone's on the swings, but she's the gentlest, most passive puppy otherwise. That's why I'm laughing so hard while she's scratching my ankles: I was completely taken aback! she's like the Two Face of the schnauser world. The second I stepped off the swing, she sat down and wagged her tail like nothing had ever happened! It makes me smile just remembering her tiny tantrum...
NO ANIMALS WERE HARMED IN THE PROCESS OF TAKING THESE PHOTOS. (Just my ankles were harmed.)
Now: some photos of my loverly friends (I made the photos look old, just for kicks...not super-authentic-looking, but still fun).
|Emilee and Piera...don't they look just wonderful? Em threw the shower.|
Also: don't tell her that ladies in the 50s never crossed their legs! haha
|The GORGEOUS Minte: sister of the bride-to-be and Maid of Honor|
|Piera proudly modeling our creation: a tissue-paper wedding gown complete with shoes, gloves, and veil|
So: the shower was fun. Pray that the wedding day is sunny!!!
I will leave you with one last photo (if you can handle it after all the other photo-spamming):
Piera as the STATUE OF HOUSEWIFERY
|Poised with apron, whisk, and cookbook ready to please her husband by keeping house and cooking dinner and never questioning his decisions...lol.|
