Yesterday was my brother's engagement/parent's anniversary/mother's birthday/father's day party. We have a big family so we like to combine as much as we can to justify everyone getting together. All my siblings (except my sis who lives out of the country) came in to celebrate. The party had a casual vibe but I always like to have a little fun with my clothing. I was afraid the party would be held outdoors so I needed a wedge (you know I wasn't gonna wear a flat) because there is nothing worse than wearing stilettos in a garden. The party was indoors in the end so I could have worn anything but as the shortest of 7 kids, I was happy for the extra several inches.
From head to toe:
- Sunglasses: Moschino, Century 21, free (with $60 rewards)
- Earrings: Alexis Bittar, Nordstrom Rack, $11 (retail $95)
- Tassel necklace: H&M, $1 (super clearance!)
- Stacked necklace: A.V. Max, sample sale, $15
- Cuff: A.V. Max, sample sale, $5
- Bag: Jimmy Choo Charlize python studded clutch, sample sale, $100
- Dress: H&M kaftan, $20
- Sandals: Jimmy Choo Peekabo sandal, $90 (retail $595)
- Rings: all Lionette, sample sale, $25 each
Again, I'm wearing Toxic Tale by MAC. I just ordered another coral, Flocking Fabulous from Nordstrom because it was 30% off! Sadly it already sold out but they have a few other lipsticks left for 30% off here, here, here and here.
I still can't believe I forgot to remove my pony tail holder from my wrist. Ugh.
A huge thank you to my teenage nephew B who took my pictures yesterday!
You can shop my look here :)
My brother got special cakes for everyone but himself. I got a kick out of the Father's Day shirt and tie cake. The tie was plastic - I only know because my son tried to eat it LOL.
|One is easier than three.|
My little cheeseballs wore vintage Gymboree that they pulled out of my stockpile. I used to buy cheap Gymbo at their Red Balloon Sale where everything was $5 or less. I finally got sick of seeing them in the same matching outfits so we took a break. Ella started digging around in the basement and we've been revisiting some of their favorite collections. Pardon all the chocolate shmeared all over them. There was a whole lotta cake at that party.
And the highlight of my day was when my very generous brother and his fiance surprised me a new $850 Prada Saffiano wristlet. Then he gave all his nieces and nephews crisp $100 bills. Thanks Shlo!
Hope you had a great weekend too! My kids are now off from school and we don't have any concrete summer plans. At the party I "adopted" my niece for the week so now I have 4 kids to myself. I hope to squeeze in a little shopping this week but we shall see...
