Hope you enjoy!

2012 Bridal Show

So this weekend me and my lovely bridesmaid attended the bridal show at the Direct Energy Centre.  It was everything I expected. Tonnes of overwhelmed brides, men being dragged around looking at their watches. Parents trying to force their ideas upon their kids. Tonnes of boothes, cakes and draws, draws, draws oooh and a Canadian beer booth. 😀
As a bride to be I do recommend it to anyone who is planning a wedding, or just starting to plan.
I wanted to take more pictures but I got in trouble after taking pics of the cake wall.

Lol I was amused by these gowns. Very corset meets crinoline.

Just as I clicked the camera this lady stepped in front of me and then I was informed “NO PICTURES ” lol

Heavenly Match!

Today I decided to break out one of my most favorite 1950’s cardigans.  Its beautiful! Its nude in color and has gathers on the cuffs with rhinestones.  Also the fur is removeable. But I personally think the fur is the best part! Its so full and beautiful! It looks brand new.
I found this lovely gem about 3 years ago and I actually found the fur and the sweater separate.  I found the fur first and fell in love with it and I was planning on just sewing it onto a jacket or sweater.  A few days later I found the sweater and noticed they had matching snaps. They fit together perfectly.  Match made in vintage heaven 😀

Peacock Toes!

Today I finally got to wear my new beautiful peacock shoes that my sister got me for Christmas. She bought them at this great little store in Calgary called Blame Betty. I have been dying to wear them but its been either raining or snowing this winter.  But today it was dry so I jumped to the opportunity.

Kitchen Cuteness!

So yesterday I woke up early to go for breakfast with an old friend.  When I arrived home I was greeted with a lovely surprise…….. a cute little cupcake kitchen cooking set. It has an apron, cooking mitt, and towel. I love it!!! Some may not think this is great but I do, as we spend alot of time in the kitchen. Either way I have the cutest fiance ever 😀
