ETHICAL WEDDING PARTY

Last Saturday husband and I attended a celebration and the marriage of two very sweet people; Annabella and Jim. Event was held in Almar Restaurant in Dumbo, Brooklyn and the entire venue was sprinkled with hip beautiful people, great beats, delicious vegan food and classic cocktails.
I had trouble finding the right type of outfit since the dress code was "cocktail attire" and I really didn't want to wear just another little black dress. Although I saw some amazing ones that night worn by the guests at the party. I'm trying to slowly move away from too much black and therefore I wanted the dress to be either yellow or pink. 
And pink is what I found. And I got an amazing deal. Originally $198+tax, marked down to $69, but when I got to the register the price came down to $35! Hello unexpected surprise sales! I actually thought I was buying a midi skirt (yeah, didn't try it on), but when I got home I noticed it was a dress. Sleeveless. And sleeveless never stays up. So I'm going to try to make it into a skirt at some point. I also found a matching hair accessory to complete my dreamy ballerina look.

"Today we promise to dedicate ourselves completely to each other, with body, speech, and mind. In this life, in every situation, in wealth or poverty, in health or sickness, in happiness or difficulty, we will work to help each other perfectly. The purpose of our relationship will be to attain enlightenment by perfecting our kindness and compassion toward all sentient beings."- Lama Thubten Yeshe



Viime lauantaina juhlimme kahden erittäin mukavan ihmisen avioliittoa, Annabellan ja Jimin. Tapahtuma pidettiin Almar ravintolassa Dumbossa, Brooklynissa ja koko paikka oli taynna kauniita ihmisiä, musiikkia, herkullista vegaaniruokaa ja klassisia cocktaileja. Minulla oli vaikeuksia löytää oikean tyyppinen asu sillä pukukoodi oli "cocktail-puku" enka todellakaan halunnut pukeutua pikkumustaan. Vaikka näinkin illan aikana joitakin uskomattoman kauniita pikkumustia juhlijoiden paalla. Yritän hiljalleen siirtyä pois mustista vaatteista, ja siksi halusin pukeutua joko keltaiseen tai vaaleanpunaiseen. Ja vaaleanpunainen oli se jonka loysin. Mekkoni oli alunperin 198 dollaria + verot, merkitty alas 69 dollaria, mutta kassarekisterilla hinta tuli alas 35 dollariin! Luulin etta ostin midi-hameen (joo, en kokeillut sitä), mutta kun pääsin kotiin huomasin etta se olikin mekko. Hihaton. Ja hihaton ei koskaan pysyy ylhäällä minun kropallani... Joten aion yrittää tehdä siitä hameen jossakin vaiheessa.  Ihana ilta ja ihania ihmisia! Onnea Annabella ja Jim!
