What I Wore - Sister's Bridal Shower

Sunday, August 21, 2011

I will be covering my sister's Bridal Shower over the next couple of blog posts due to the amount of pictures! ha-ha.  So first up what I wore to the Bridal Shower. I recently bought 2 cute cocktailesque (I love making up words!) dresses from Macy's. This dress is one of them. I loved it! I think I've lost some inches because it was just a slight tad too big, but oh well, I still rocked it!  I was feeling pretty emotional before, during, and after the Bridal Shower, because I wished that both of my grandmothers could have been there...but they were both represented in spirit. The scarf I wore belonged to my mom's mom, and my Dad's sister came and brought our littlest cousin, who looks and acts exactly like my grandmother on my Dad's side.  I also know that they were smiling down on us from Heaven, enjoying the shower just as much as we were!


Ensemble:
Dress: Calvin Klein (Macy's)
Pumps: Bandolino (DSW)
Scarf: Grandma G
Bracelets: Burlington
Watch: Michael Kors
Earrings: MINT Boutique

I apologize for the quality of the pictures, but I am still in Pittsburgh at my parents' house and I did not bring my tripod. With the tripod I would be able to find the best place for photos...but alas...it was nighttime by the time I was able to take these pics and I couldn't take them outside...

  1. Awwww... It is hard to not have family around for special occasions! On my wedding day I wore a ring from each of my grandmother's (that they left me when they passed away). Helped to make them feel present!
