new treasure

Saturday, I picked up my wedding dress at Big Rock Little Rooster. I'm not the kinda girl who wanted to go to a huge shop with hundreds of gowns and designers- I highly recommend this shop to any bride looking for an intimate, personal shopping experience. They have a select number of designers (Christos, Reem Acra, Badgley Mischka, Kenneth Pool, Vera Wang, and Romona Keveza) and frequent trunk shows.

After the appointment, my Mom and I drank a glass of champagne at Rigsby's and did a little more shopping at Grandview Mercantile. I found the perfect vintage, rose-gold bracelet... The perfect piece to commemorate the day- it looks exactly like this:

I saw the sequel last night and I was totally unimpressed. The things that made the biggest impression- Carrie's amazing frame arrangement and the paint color in her old apartment:

Love it! I want a room-clone!

happy birthday dr. magooooski

Yesterday was Dr. Magoo's birthday. We celebrated with a fantastic dinner at Rigsby's with both of our families.
For one of his Birthday gifts, I purchased an All-Clad Waffle Iron from William Sonoma:

And some waffle mix:
One might think these unlikely gifts for a 27-year-old man... But he seriously loves his waffles! We christened the iron this morning with some fantastic results:

If you're not already a member of Gilt, I strongly suggest you join. And if you have an iphone, download the gilt app (it makes perusing sales dangerously easy... You're a click away from snagging a Marc Jacobs blouse, White and Warren cashmere cardigan, Chan Luu bracelet, Sabre serving piece, Crane stationary.... I could go on and on).

This week the site featured Thread Social- a great brand with unique, feminine party dresses. (PS Thread Social also has a brand, Thread, with beautiful bridal dresses).

I bought a cute little tulip skirt:

And an easy, comfortable dress:
