Cupcake Dresses and Bow Ties

Over the weekend my dear friend Star turned the big 3-0 and she did it in style! She themed her birthday bash to a 50s high school prom, filled with cake, balloons, DJ, and photo ops. And everyone came all gussied up, it was amazing!

Many of my friends were there, such as Christine from Smitten, Kiley from Running with a Chance of Costumes, and Samantha and Jeremy, the spectacular power couple behind Match Accessories. I also met some amazing new people, like Janet of Love Me Deux.

For the event nothing in my closet would do, so I found myself at the premier vintage shop in Orange, Elsewhere Vintage. The staff at Elsewhere was so helpful and found multiple gowns that fit. I was tempted by a robin’s egg blue floor length number, but I felt this gold and white number offered the most re-wearability factor, as I can see this working for a holiday party and New Years down the road. I snagged the necklace there as well, as none of my other pearls worked out. Of course I waited until the day of the event to realize that! But once again, Elsewhere came to the rescue. They are basically a one-stop shop for all of your vintage needs!
