What’s better in life than a sister? Absolutely nothing. My sister has been in my life since the age of 2 years old, and I can’t quite imagine a day without her. She’s the bubbles to my champagne, the sprinkles to my cupcake, and the sunshine that surrounds my life everyday. Near or far, I feel her presence. Many sisters are lucky enough to share this same bond.
This past weekend, we hosted a fall themed Blogger Birthday Bash for two of our dearest fashionistas, Cara Kovacs of The Stylephile and Leslie Marin of Bleecker and Spring. Unfortunately we missed both girls’ birthdays, so we planned a belated birthday celebration. Our other lovely friends who celebrated were Kathleen Osborne of Le Vintage Dress, Aishly Tromp of Style L4b, and Olivia Ribera of Sweets by Olivia.
I chose a fall theme for the party using shades of plum and metallic gold for the decor. When you are planning a party, it’s important to choose a color scheme and theme for your event. I always start with the look of the room. It helps me to envision the end product, before I even begin. I searched Pinterest for creative, fall themed table ideas, and floral centerpieces to create a story board, which helped me plan the party. You check out my party inspiration boards here.
On April 17th, between 6-8 p.m., I will be co-hosting a shopping event with Cara Kovacs at Cynthia Rowley’s Madison Avenue store in New York. About a week or so ago, I had a chance to try on several outfits at the boutique. One of my favorites was the Bonded Shift Dress, with a gorgeous floral print, that is both feminine and sophisticated.
