Playing Dress-Up: A SoCal Spring Wedding

May 13th, 2010 - filed under: The Fashion » Playing Dress-Up


Two of my favoritest people on the planet recently married each other. I love it when that happens!

It was a gorgeous afternoon, sunny and warm with a mild ocean breeze. An easy evening full of friends and laughter, and music late into the night. Thank you Tommy and Kelly. And mazel tov!



I wore :

  • Vintage Minidress: secondhand, and it’s handmade!
  • White Cotton Tights: from the amazing Sock Dreams
  • Black Cardigan: from Nordstrom, ages and ages ago
  • Red Flats: also from Nordstrom, also ages ago


Waits wore his own little wedding number. In case you can’t tell, that’s an ‘All Dressed Up’ tux onesie. He also had matching black booties, not pictured. He’s already got mad style, eh?

Photo booth!

  • Mrs. Money


  • Jeremy

    Pictures of other people at the wedding would be nice. Also, a special shout out to the bride and groom for selecting vegetarian fare for the wedding feast. It wasn’t vegan, but it was still forward-looking.

  • Vicki-Lou

    I LOVE the minidress. Makes me want to breakout the sewing machine again and get sewing. So much to do right now… Meanwhile my hubby is making is own root beer, hehe.
    BTW, I loved your post on Henna, and hubby and I have decided to try it, too. He’s a photographer, so I will let you know when we get the nice pics up. First I have to hunt for the henna goods at a cheap price.

  • Heather

    awwwww….you look so happy! and Waits…oh my goodness! luvbugg!

  • Minna

    Yes! My favourite! Playing dress-up :o)

    You guys look absolutely gorgeous. Looks like Waits is not that into weddings!

    And the photobooth family photos are so cool! I think I’m the only person in the world who has never been in a photo booth. Haha. Oh and I love the thrid one, I think it’s hilarious! :D

    (By the way. Is that still henna on your hair?)

  • Eric Normand

    You all look so great. And your baby is super cute.

  • Salekdarling

    You look like such a happy family! I love the dress and tights. Damian is definitely styling too :-) I hope you had fun and Congratulations to the Bride and groom.

  • Lenn

    Awww, the way your hubby is looking at you in that top pic is PRICELESS!!!

  • Awol

    Double congratulations! Seems like things are going really well for you!

    I’m not visiting your blog as much as I probably should these days, so sorry about that! I thought to come here today to use this space to drop a link to ya, since I don’t know any other way to get ahold of you. :) I saw this Make article and thought of you and your lovely hen. I don’t know where your hen is living these days, but this looked like a pretty awesome chicken-house. Enjoy!

  • April

    Your family is beautiful!

    (…and your red hair is kickass …)

  • Richard

    I want your Baby ;)
    I’ll pay hansomely as well, looks like your having a great time :D

  • Sayward

    Thanks everyone! It was such a beautiful day and yes, I am exquisitely happy! =D

    @ Vicki-Lou – Wow, homemade root beer! I’m intrigued, tell me more! Also, yes please on pictures of henna. =)

    @ Minna – Never been in a photobooth?! Darling, you must do it, it’s so much fun!

    But about the hair . . . no, not henna. I’m back on Manic Panic now that Waits is out. What can I say, I gotta be bright! It’s actually the same as this color, but I’m just not bleaching first.

    @ Awol – Great link, thanks. Those hen houses are so inspiring!

    @ Richard – No way man, he’s MINE! =D
