Party Plans


Well, well, well. Look who found a new dress after she swore she was going to only spend money on stuff for the house this summer. BUT look at this dress, look at this color, look at the fit. Can you blame me while only slightly judging me? And technically it is for my house. If you consider decorating your closet as an important part of the house decorating process, which I do, then I’m still right on target. 

Little known fact about me: I hate throwing parties. This has been a truth since I was a little girl — I’d much rather go to your slumber party than throw my own. I think it was the expectation to have the best party ever every time and that was way too much pressure at 8 years old, then at 12 and still now at 28. So now the only parties I like to plan are soiree’s at bloom, mainly because it’s only 3 hours and it still involves dress up. So this week I’m planning our next Sip + Shop for Thursday and as much as I dread the process, I have to remind myself: champagne and macaroons. That is my mantra this week.

    I love LOFT. I used to work there and the quality of their clothes exceed so many other brands. They just had 40% off everything this past weekend and I ordered the cutest silky romper ever!

    I'd spend a little more on the dress too. It's lovely. I know, I'm looking at the color, and drooling.

  9. You look so beautiful! I can see why you made an exception for that dress. I made a few exceptions to my no-shopping-we-have-no-money self-imposed rule this weekend because there were just a few things I could not resist. 🙂

    I hate throwing parties too! I'd rather be a part of it (in a silent, extremely invisible way) though I do like attending smaller ones (where there are giveaway bags + yummy stuff to eat, haha). 🙂 // Also, you certainly have a way with colour, Kendi! Love the purple thrown in with a good measure of an icy pastel blue!! // I had a tiny suggestion which I think you'll like but I don't want to write it here in case someone else steals it before you take it on! I'll e-mail you. // I like how I've begun to think of you as a deeply close friend of mine. Blame your blog, not me! Hehe! Bye now.
