my friends ali & mike are getting married next year.
them two are adorable.
and both lovely.
Yeah, say that out loud...Meeee-nehh-ssooodddaaa.
we made a girls trip to Portland this past weekend with Ali to
try on some dresses and do girly things. I'm so happy I went! I love going dress shopping,
especially with a friend who's getting married!
the two dress shops
I didn't have my camera with me at the English Department, but managed to take some photos on my iphone- who knows if you'd notice the difference.
They carry crazy, lovely designers from Jenny Yoo to Ivy & Aster.
The dresses that Ali tried on were all very STUNNING. she looked STUNNING!
I was reminiscing, for sure.
In love with hair pieces.
I would collect them if I could and decorate
my home with them, is that weird?
my good friend of mine, Blanca and I sitting inside of Sarah Seven's boutique.
(our Ali was inside the fitting room, while I was taking this photo-btw) !
we got to stay at Hotel Monaco, downtown Portland.
unbelievable. I was blown away by the decor - utterly strange, but beautiful nonetheless.
fancy and entirely unique. they had a duck-legged lamp!
cute little bronze waddle feet, I wanted to take him home with me. he'd fit really nice next to my sofa on top of our side table, we need a lamp there- everytime I want to eat a snack and watch some TV, I get crumbs all over cause we have no available light there!
okay, on another note- those bed sheets! gnarly, right?
I like them so much- I think because they remind me of my sweet VEGAS! Did I just type, my sweet vegas? uh, I guess I did.
Right? The lights and such- I don't know if I'd actually get them, but they are real-cool.
And of course, all the shopping in Portland.
Brought back all sorts of goodies.
I wish most of it was from Una. because. holy shit,
I love the stuff they carry in their store.
Ate at Screen Door for brunch, of course.
Now, back home in Seattle.
Back at it - at work and loving every minute.
This girl was such a cutie- and into it like I've never seen before.
She had all these surprise poses that came with every flash in her
little jazzercise dance-wear.
bustin those moves out like it was nothing! like a pro.
Did I mention she is 4½?
4 years old.
It made my work day-
