Wedding wardrobes, events and stuff!

Hello Lovelies,

Monday has come and gone, so here I am on Tuesday running around like a crazy lady as usual!

The weekend was busy-busy! On Friday night I worked as a cigarette girl at the Hotel Congress for a fund raising event "Neon Under the Stars" put on by Tucson Historical Preservation Society, to preserve our cities historic signs and architecture. The event was a success raising quite a substantial amount of money to restore and preserve these fabulous neon nostalgic signs, that once made the gateway to our city of Tucson so quaint and unique. The cigarette girl passed out neon glow sticks instead of Lucky Strikes, but it was a hit!

Then Saturday I rose at the crack of dawn to drive down to Bisbee, where I met up with my gal pal Jennifer who owns The Shady Dell vintage trailer park. I had a freelance gig to style a wedding party of six gals, who wanted some vintage styles for their cute little wedding, that took place at the Art Deco courthouse in downtown Bisbee. The reception then followed at The Shady Dell! The ordained minister sported a 1960's wiggle dress, cat-eyes and a bee-hive! It was all so much fun and too cute for words!

Me, hubbie and our good friends Jennifer and Justin (owners of Shady Dell)

The swanky ordained minister!

and her fabulous beehive!

The beautiful bride and her party, some wanted very simple-soft classic updo's and a few wanted some vintage styles. There was the 40's inspired gal, the beehive and a few classic french twist. The bride had a beautiful crown brain around her head, she was very simple and elegant!

Speaking of weddings! I wanted to post this entry last week, but didn't get around to it. Since we are on the subject of weddings, I would like to share one that I attended the previous weekend. This one was a little closer to home, as my second to youngest brother-in-law tied the knot! The wedding was beautiful and so much fun! We danced the night away at the Tucson Museum of Art, which is where the reception was held. It is such a lovely & cozy atmosphere. The weather was perfect for an outdoor event, and the food was delicious, Congratulations Adam and Danielle!

It was also a very special evening because it was my Mother's first formal outing since she came home from the hospital. She was in attendance and so were many other friends and family. It is always nice to see and catch up with everybody! I was in a 1930's glamorous starlet mood, so here is what I wore.....

1930's satin gown- estate sale
Silver 1930's heels- Buffalo Exchange

1930's rhinestone handbag- estate sale

Vintage rhinestone accessories- here & there
