April Wedding Showers

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. Scroll to the bottom to see a photo of a Chanel DIY Camellia done by a blog viewer!)








Skirt: Vintage
Top: Gap
Bag: Chanel (Vintage)
Jewelry: Earrings- Vintage; Bracelets- (Unknown)
Sunglasses: D&G

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!!

  9. Nice outfit, Allison! Love your nude pumps and the vintage Chanel is gorgeous too :) It's amazing how Cam pin turned out! I hardly used mine and to think how much money spent on them, I'm a bit sad :( You are coming to Dubai during the summer? You are brave my dear :) hope you will have a good time especially when that is during the Summer Sales!
