Prom Option #1: Breakfast @ Tiffanys

Well first I need a date, but it is time to go dress shopping. I HATE all what's out there at the malls - all that slinky/cheap/scrunched/tacky crap. It's going to be a long process to find the perfect dress - IF I go. I really want to find a vintage dress because I don't want to look back and laugh at what I wore. If a vintage dress has stood the test of time so far, then I think it will for many decades to come.

Dress- Anthropologie
Shoes - Steve Madden
Necklace and Bracelet - Marie Antoinette Collection @ the Lourve Museum gift shop (I fell in love with it when I saw it, but didn't buy it)
Purse - vintage Chanel
Sunglasses - Fred Flare
Ring -
Espresso Cup - Crate and Barrel

Valentine's Day Party

I put boa feathers on the chandelier ( no surprise). Then I handmade hearts with all different types of paper and hung them on ribbons from the chandelier. I made three main cakes. The one to the left has airbrushed royal icing flowers all over it and the one to the right is fondant. Below the cakes I made heart shaped meringues. I have a HUGE picture frame that I cover the stove with. According to the party, I decorate the frame differently - a collage. It's my #1 party planning tip. The last picture are mini chocolate cheesecakes.

Trunk Full of Love

Pink Hair

I love Rachel McAdams new pink highlights. Some hate it, but I love it. Plus in the movie Marie Antoinette had pink hair.

Rachel is a Modern Marie
