Help us Win $3000

I love fashion. I may not be able to afford most of the items I fall in love with but I do love it. Some of my fondest memories include me and my mother watching fashion week runway shows on local NYC television channels. It is because of my love of fashion that I have been gifted some great items throughout the years - some more great than others. One of my mother's oldest friends gave me a replica Louis Vuitton bag a year or so ago. I politely said thank you but it's been sitting in the back of my closet ever since.

I don't wear fakes or replicas. I just don't see the point. No matter how good of a replica you have, it will always be nothing more than a fake. I think it's better to save up the money until you're able to afford the luxury items you desire or you can purchase a preowned item from reputable consignment stores.

One of the consignment stores I love is Fashionphile. They have great 100% authentic pieces and are meticulous with their descriptions. When you do business with Fashionphile, you know exactly what you're getting.

Fashionphile is currently doing a "Kill Your Fakes" contest. My baby girl and I submitted this video here as our entry. The winner with the most "likes" will win $3000. Think of the fabulous diaper bag that can buy us! The second and third winner will win $1000 and $300 respectively. Please like our video on the Fashionphile website [YouTube or Facebook likes do not count]. You can like it once a day so we can officially encourage you to vote early and vote often. Thanks for watching and please spread the word.

My Pinup Wedding

Photo of my Brooch Bouquet work in progress

As most of you know by now, I'm getting married in June. This is the event planner's dream and nightmare all at the same time. I have so many ideas and plans. I have a vision and lots of opinions. I just know it will be a incredibly difficult when the moment comes to let get and allow others to handle it all. I'm not very sure if I will even be capable of doing that. But until that moment arrives, I am having a great time planning our special day.

I'm not your average bride. In fact, we're not your average couple. We have been in a committed relationship for a while (domestic partners since 2010) and welcomed a beautiful little girl last year. To stand up in front of a room of our closest friends and family and say "okay, now I commit to you and our life together" seems silly to us. Not to mention that we're two individuals who never imagined getting married. But here we are...

We want our wedding to be a fun celebration of our life together. It's a party! 

I'm going for a vintage wedding look. Surprise surprise, right? Our venue is the Spirit of New York yacht so I will be incorporating the colors of the ship - navy and silver. I'll be decorating the hall with lots of vintage white lace, crocheted doilies, old books, old artifacts from the 40s [and older] and faux pearls.

I'm going to be documenting some of my planning through this blog under the title "My Pinup Wedding". I'll post reviews for the companies I meet, ideas for easy DIY projects, How-To video tutorials and more. I hope you'll enjoy it.
