Recently I had a few friends attend a wedding in Santa Barbara. We talked about what they would wear at our gatherings and dinner parties. I wasn’t on the guestlist but was able to live vicariously through them. They shared their dress ideas with me, which led to many hours of browsing the internet for the perfect dress. It made me realize that wedding guests have a lot of prep to do. If you don’t own any formal attire, then that means it is time to start shopping for a new look. The shopping process can be overwhelming for those who don’t love to shop. I’m exhausted and didn’t even attend the wedding!

We recently threw a bridal shower for my sister DS at Ivy at the Shore in Santa Monica on the water. We celebrated in their back room called The Bungalow, a bright and welcoming flower-adorned space with exceptional sunlight from the sun roof. It truly was a stunning place. A friend of DS’s arranged this lovely luncheon for 20 or so of us to celebrate my sister’s bridal shower.
My sis DS is perhaps the most kind, sweet, smart, beautiful person I know. I can’t tell you how happy I was to be there to see her so happy and surrounded by people who love her and are about her. She and her fiancé AL (my lovely future brother-in-law) are a perfect match. It’s a delight to be celebrating their pending big day and future lives together. The bridal shower venue reflected how we all feel for DS at this time. Happy.
Swathed in pink and with colorful roses and lush floral linens and furnishings, this spot was the perfect place for a celebration. I definitely think I will host my next Girl Boss Lunch there! The entire place was just lovely.
