Blast from the Past: Engagement Party

Dress:  Miss Me (old, LOVE the pockets on this one), Shoes:  Zara (similar here), Necklace:  Anthropologie, Clutch:  Anthropologie (similar here on SALE!, this one is on my wishlist)

I have been recycling a LOT of my old clothes lately rather than buying new.  I was digging in the back of my closet the other day when I came across the various dresses that I wore for events surrounding my wedding.  Since my 5 YEAR WEDDING ANNIVERSARY is right around the corner, I thought it would be interesting to do a remix of the dresses that I wore for my engagement party, shower and rehearsal dinner. 

I wore this white frock to my engagement party in August 2006.  It was outside under a large tent at my in-law's lake house and, despite the light rain and unseasonably cool weather, it was a beautiful party.

With me in the picture below are my two maids of honor, Michele and Jess.


Such great memories!

    1. Eliza ~ thank you, and I agree ~ when you wear something old years later, everyone thinks it's new anyway :-)
