YAY!! Our Birthday Bash was a success!  

Thank you so much everyone who came!  We had such a good time and are delighted that our brides were there to help us celebrate.

Claire took a few pictures to document the party...

Sweet Obsessions brought us our teeny birthday cupcakes!  Yay!  DEE-LISH-ISSS.

And then we enjoyed being serendaded by Ukebox Heroes!  Ok, first - they're adorable.  Second - UKULELES YOU GUYS.

Party Pleasers helped us make this event such a wonderful experience!  Andrew brought all the adorable vintage furniture for the audience. (Fashion shows are exhausting.  One must sit down.)  And of course they had an adorable display.

Scarlet & Grace Weddings - wedding photographers extraordinaire!  We love these ladies!  PLUS we have a bride in common!  They are shooting Kristin's wedding and we were really excited to see her engagement album!

And a brand new wedding vendor!  Unshakably Unique is basically the perfect match for our brides.  Check out her adorable personalized gift boxes!  Eep!

I'm SURE I will have more pictures to share with you soon, but that's all for now.  


Fashion Show Sneak Peek

I just talked to Ashley at the store and she's getting the fashion show ready for our birthday bash on Friday.  She told me I can give you a sneak peek of a few dresses!

"Lark" by Maggie Sottero

YES.  I love this dress, too.  This is a wedding gown with a secret: it's two layers.  Layer one is a whisper soft and smooth underlay with spaghetti straps and just enough shaping in the bust - and basically no back.  So yeah. 

 Layer two is an endless expanse of lace, showing off a deep cut out back, and a pretty little sweep train.  You can get her in all ivory - BUT you can also get Lark in champagne under the ivory which is how it's shown here:

Come see her on the "runway" Friday night :)

"Micki" by David Tutera

There is a lot to be excited about with this gown.  Satin, lace, and sparkle combine forces to produce something you've not seen before.

Rich satin mermaid skirt with an elegant lace bodice featuring sparkle in the all the right places.  The skirt has unusual panels of peek-a-boo satin showing through the same lace as on the bodice.  Unreal.

So excited to see this train flow in person.  

If you're interested in these gowns you can come on Friday night to see how they move in person and book and appointment to try them on yourself!  

The party is from 5pm - 7pm and the fashion show starts at 6pm!  Just show the tickets below and we're happy to admit you free of charge :)  We've also got vendors and raffles ready for you to enjoy.  I'm particularly stoked on the raffles.  (We do recommend that the kiddos stay at home.)

Questions?  805.389.1515!  Hope to see you there!  (Micki and Lark hope to meet you, too)
