Outfit: Bachelorette Party

My sister-in-law Kaitlyn is getting married in 2 days! (ahhhhh....it's all happening, so exciting!!)
Over this past weekend we celebrated her bachelorette party.
The blushing bride to be wore white (check out her outfit post here) and all the ladies in attendance wore black.

Here is the LBD I chose:

Dress: Herve Leger via Rent The Runway, Necklace: c/o House of Gemmes, Shoes: c/o Sole Society, Earrings: Just Fab, Cuff: House of Harlow 1960 via Rent the Runway, Pave Ring: Baublebar, Stackable Ring: Lili Claspe, Bracelet: Willow House Jewelry

We had such a fun day/night. Everything was so amazing from getting our hair done, to gifts and penis shaped foods with pre drinking, to dinner then out dancing and more drinking, to a final 2 bars that had us out until 3:00am. I can say without a shadow of a doubt that was the latest I've been out in years! lol 

Here is a shot of the group just before we headed out for dinner, dancing, and drinking:

I can't believe Katie is getting married in 2 days. 
I still think of her as younger sometimes (she IS 8 years younger then me), so it's so hard to believe she is old enough to get married. I know, I know, I sound old. ;)

 I am happy and proud of the woman I have had the pleasure of watching her become these past 8 and 1/2 years. It's crazy to me that one of my little sisters is getting married in 2 days so I can't even imagine how my mother-in-law feels. 

I can't wait to watch as the next chapter of her life starts. 
I always feel like my life started when I got married and the kids came (does anyone else feel that way?), so I'm super excited to see what the future holds! 

Ok, everyone hold your coffee cups up and cheers to Mike & Kaitlyn! Love you guys! xo

aww thanks Johanna! I was sad to give it back ;)

Balancing Lisa said...

me too! I still have one more rental this summer. I love that I got to wear a dress that cost $1300 for a night and spent less then 100 to do so! ;)

The Herve Leger looks AMAZING on you!

Yea.. I really hated sending the dresses back too, and it's a little too much planning for me. :P But, hey I found out that you can get a lot of these dresses lightly pre-owned for around the same price! Just check out eBay. And, for the highly counterfeited stuff like Herve Leger, check out Lollipuff. It's crazy, but people will sell their lightly pre-owned Herve Leger for only a tad more than what RTR charges for renting.

Hope that's helpful.
