It was a very eventful past weekend. I told everyone I had a little surprise to tell everyone and now I can! One of my best high school friends, Wai (who's also one of my bridesmaids) got ENGAGED this past Saturday. Her boyfriend, Tats, surprised her at 5 pm on top of Kerry Park in Seattle, overseeing the Seattle skylines. A few weeks ago Tats had called me for my help with this whole mission. He said his idea was to have Erwin, my wedding photographer, capture the moment he proposes. To do this, I had to make up a story to Wai so she'd show up on site. So the story we came up with was Erwin lost some of our engagement photos and wanted to retake them for us. And since I know Wai loved his pictures, if she'd like to join me, watch how he worked, and possibly take some with me. It was a bit weird, but she BOUGHT it! When they arrived on site, Erwin (who was in on this whole thing as well) said Chris and I would be a little late, so would they stand in a certain spot for him to test his lighting. Then that was it! Tats got down on his knees and...well...(insert aawwwwww's and tears here). I'm so happy for them and can't wait to see their pictures! I will definitely be posting them up when the teasers come out.
After the proposal, Tats asked some of us, her closest friends, to gather at a local restaurant in Queen Anne for dinner. To celebrate this occasion, I finally grabbed the two-wheeler dress! My bicycle necklace arrived late last week and I was able to complete the look of the outfit. So here it is:
I love love love this dress. I felt so pretty in it, and just dinner with friends wasn't long enough for me to get my fill of the dress. I didn't want to come home and take it off. I just love the touch of the bicycle necklace and glad that I ended up getting something like this rather than the Anthro one I posted with all the colorful crystals.
I also went to Anthro at the Bravern on Friday prior to our dinner and tried on the Secret Treasures Dress. I walked past it a couple of times, thinking that it's very similar to the Beda. After not seeing much to try on, I decided to grab it and headed into the fitting room. I grabbed the Medium and only unbuttoned the top half of the dress but was able to slip it on fine. I agree with some of the current reviews out there that says the bust area fits tight and the waist area is a little more giving, resulting in bigger busted girls having to size up. I thought a medium was fine on me (I'm a 34B) but I don't mind the waist being a little less fitted because I planned on wearing a belt and who doesn't want a dress they can eat in right? :) Overall I loved how this dress made me feel. The skirt's not as full as the Beda and the sleeves are adorable, with folded detailing. I love that I don't have to wear a cardigan with this if I didn't want to.
