One of Garren’s best friends came into town, so we used it as a chance to have a bff (fine dining) dinner date. We hit up one of the restaurants we’re looking into for our wedding reception (Apolline in New Orleans) and dolled up. (Because who doesn’t need a chance to dress up every once in awhile. It’s good for the soul.)
It’s also proof that we both clean up well!
And own something other than t-shirts and jeans!
My bff (Mallory) also joined us, making it an excellent chance to get some photos with Garren. Even though he and I have been together off and on for 8.5 years, we don’t actually have a lot of “couples” photos. I’m glad that we rectified this! (And that Mal did such a damn good job catching cute pictures of us.)
This print, the Big Band Bows, is one of my favorites at Trashy Diva right now– I also have it in the Doll Mini Dress. I love the vibrant primary colors and the gorgeous red waist (plus the 1940s is one of my favorite styles there– it’s perfect!).
The Something Blue Manolo Blahniks Garren bought me go so beautifully with it, I couldn’t resist pulling them out for their first wear. While they’re technically my wedding shoes, I’d like to get them worn just a bit before the big day. The idea of wearing new, unworn, and painful shoes at my wedding seems like a nightmare!
ANNNDDD…. this is probably my favorite photo of us. EVER. AND THAT EVER WILL BE.
