#WithBennyD in AZ #Scottsdale

On NYE we drove to Scottsdale, Arizona for an engagement/NYE party. Bear’s college friend is having a small destination wedding so they decided to combine the celebration of the New Year and their commitment to each other.

We woke up early and headed east, but on the way we stopped by the outlets!

I blew my entire $500 gift from grandpa in an hour. I could’ve spent more but Bear put me on a budget. 🙁

I found a few amazing pieces that I cannot wait to wear! Yippeeee!

It rained most of the day and all night and into the next day in Arizona.

It was super cold and not amusing.

I wore the same dress from my holiday party… I purchased it with the intention of wearing it for NYE and possibly my 35th birthday.

We had a great time, though the hotel we stayed at was sketchy. I was able to get a really nice photo in my raincoat. 😛


#KansasFun

We went to some fun in the woods thing for a musical event and we ended up just playing in the kids area. You all know I can’t resist a slide, so when I saw one, I had to slide down. Yes, even in my dress. Also, you can see that my son and I can’t take a nice picture.

Wedding Day

Photographs by the talented @MichelleKimPhoto!

We rented a shuttle since most of the people were from out of town. We met at our apartment in DTLA and shuttled everyone to El Matador Beach in Malibu for our private ceremony.

#SelfieStick came in handy!

I, of course, had to get into my Nike Internationalist in Silver to hike down the mountain.

IMG_2880The weather was gloomy but apparently it works best in photos so I wasn’t too mad. Well, except that I had my hair blowing everywhere and ruining photos!

I was freezing and was glad I brought my Yves Salomon Raccoon Fur coat (similar)
to stay warm.

We then headed to Moonshadows in Malibu for brunch before heading to the hotel for our reception.

Everyone took a nap… 😛

I cried my eyes out… most of the people shed a tear… I must say, my vows were pretty amazing.

I felt so nervous about reading it and it took about a minute of me laughing and hesitating before I started but once I got going, I couldn’t stop tearing.

I’ll read my vows one day and make a video… so you can all enjoy!

Best Day Ever @Bebe_Stores

I was in Rancho Mirage for work. We had an event, the launch of the Ritz Carlton Residences at Rancho Mirage. I knew I had to look appropriate but I didn’t want to look overdressed.

Apparently, I was not. I had never gotten so many compliments in my life, EVER. Every person I came across, commented on how beautiful the dress was and or how beautiful I looked.

Several weeks ago, Jo and I walked into BEBE. I haven’t been in that store in over 10 years. (We were looking for wedges for Vegas). I saw this dress and HAD to try it on.

It fit like a glove AND it was purple. This is the most girliest dress ever and it’s perfect on me! Now I just need another event to wear it to!

Too bad it stands out so much that it would be too apparent when I wear it again. 🙁 I want this dress in every color, too bad there’s only one.
