This is what I would have worn to my friend Stef's Pamper the Bride party tonight, if I'd actually made it there. It's a sad story about miss-communication. We have one car, and that usually works out well since we also have bikes. This evening that did not work out, as Trevor took the car to pick up dinner and go to the store, and came after the party had started. The party was an hour's drive away. So that was a no go. He says I never told him a specific time I had to leave, I'm sure I did. Since there were no witnesses and no recording devices present, we'll just have to let this one go.
I did really like the idea of the party. Instead of a traditional shower, guests were to bring their favorite bath items and the bride would have a full basket of goodies to take home. I decided on a bottle of wine as my contribution, because I love wine with my spa nights. Stef, I promise you will still get that bottle, even if I have to give it to you at the wedding.
I grabbed these bracelets from Maya's growing collection of bangles. The silver one is part of a set I got her in Cozumel last December. People told me that silver was cheap in Mexico, but these were ridiculous. I think they were less than a dollar apiece. The other two are from In Pink, purchased with a gift card I won from a giveaway on Adored Austin.
When I first picked up this dress, I really liked the print but was not so thrilled about the big heavy beaded design on the placket. But those were easy enough to remove and are now in my bead stash awaiting use in other projects.It also has pockets, and I am always a sucker for pockets on dresses and skirts.
Well, here's hoping nothing comes up that prevents me from attending Stef's wedding. I should make sure and have the conversation with Trevor about that ASAP.
