Hands-down (and probably not surprisingly), my favorite childhood pastime was playing dress-up. I had a box full of old dance recital costumes (from my short-lived tap and ballet career…), 80’s style dresses from my mom, and accessories that could keep me occupied for hours. I once even had a “tea party birthday” where all of my friends and I dressed up and had “high tea.” Fast forward twenty or so years later, and I still love playing dress up (especially when it involves fourteen great girls and a hair and makeup team that makes you feel fab). Whether it’s a wedding, work event, New Year’s Eve, or any random cocktail party, give me a sparkly dress and heels and I’m one happy gal.
With wedding season upon us, I figured there would be no better time to share these fun photos from the day. If you’ve got a few weddings (and showers, parties, bachelorette weekends, etc.) on the horizon, don’t blow your budget on a ton of new dresses. Every stunning dress above was provided by The Stylist LA, a favorite site of mine for borrowing amazing dresses. Get familiar with the site to save yourself a ton of headaches, and if you’re in the LA area, don’t miss out on their summer sample sale, happening this week! They’ll be selling their gently-used dresses, and Ashley, Kathleen and I will be selling new and like-new pieces from our own closets. Hope you guys can make it!
