This April and May, it seems like almost everyone I know is getting married, which means my weekends are filled with showers and weddings. Yesterday, I attended a bridal shower for my friend R who will be married next month. Los Angeles' weather has been up and down lately, but yesterday brought heat within the valley where her shower was held, so I wanted to dress lightly, yet be covered enough so I could take my outfit into evening for a date with my husband. I chose to wear a vintage floral skirt and a lightweight shirt topped off with a bright magenta vintage Chanel to R's bridal shower. What do you guys think of my pairing? (P.S.

Bag: Chanel (Vintage)
Jewelry: Earrings- Vintage; Bracelets- (Unknown)
P.S. From my previous post, DIY: Making Accessories with your Chanel Camellias, some of you told me you were inspired to create your own Camellia, and I asked if you would share a photo of your finished project with me. I was so happy to receive a share from a viewer of a finished Camellia:
I love how she started with small pearls and increased the pearl size around the petal. And I think the small crystal details are amazing. And best of all, I love how she turned it into a brooch. So classic!
P.P.S. Lastly, a few posts ago, I asked for travel suggestions for this summer, and I want to thank you guys for some of the wonderful suggestions! You've given me some great ideas for places to visit in the future. My husband and I booked our end of summer vacation to Abu Dhabi & Dubai yesterday and we are very excited!!
