planning a wedding

oopss...not my wedding though. but my friend's.LOL. mine is a gazillion days away so for now, i'm just hoping and praying not exactly planning --- at least not putting things on paper. between you and me, my wedding plans come across my mind every day. my dress, my song, my cake, the invites..etc. but don't tell harry he might freak out...haha!

i totally forgot to post these photos which were taken weeks ago when my friends and i -- together with the bride to be of course (the one smiling in polka) -- went to the dress maker to have ourselves fitted for the bridesmaids' dresses. in recession, the dresses would be our gift to our friend. so that our friend won't have to spend too much to have us in her entourage (which we're very excited about as this is our first church wedding in the group), we decided to pay for our own bridesmaid's dresses. i happily obliged to design the dresses...just a simple tulip skirt with tops that have sheer chiffon cutouts. we wanted lace but phew! lace is expensive...hehe.

on a scorching hot, all i could wear was an embroidered tunic, shorts and flip-flops. we had ice cream and shopped around a bit for accessories. then visited this place that sells vintage or used furniture from japan. that explains the photo with the cabinets.

 purple embroidered tunic - big sister's closet
braided leather belt - big sister's closet
white tank top - thrifted (i DIY-ed the gold sequins on the shoulder)
dark blue denim shorts - big sister's closet (again..haha!)
green flip-flops - havaianas
faux gold bangles - gifts from india
brown sunnies - thrifted at carbon

Follow vanilla ice cream
