A couple weekends ago I went to a bridal shower for my friend on the Vineyard. It’s crazy how through high school and college you’re pretty much on the same page as all your friends, then after graduation, everyone’s life paths seem to go in wildly different directions. Marriage? WHAT IS THAT.
This amazing Tumblr pretty much describes it: MyFriendsAreMarried.tumblr.com
Don’t take this as me being bitter—I’m not in the least. Weddings are AWESOME and I will take full advantage of being the drunk, fun, single friend at every one of my cousins’ and friends’ weddings. And while sitting in a big circle of women and ooo-ing and ahh-ing over…a salad bowl…is laughable, bridal showers are fun, too. And you bet your ass I’m going to burst open with joy at every damn salad bowl, decorative lamp and bath towel I unwrap at my (far off) shower.
For this bridal shower, I wore this fun cut-out dress from LIT Boutique. LIT is my go-to in Boston when I need a cocktail dress at an affordable price. Even better than the price tag is the skirt’s spinability (that’s now a word).
