SPECtacular wedding.

is this wedding for real? it's so cute! the adorable couple, their stylish glasses (you rarely see a bride in glasses, i love that she's wearing them), the colors, the details, her simple yet stunning dress ... i love it all ...


the best part is that they look like they're having a blast. so much smiling.

see the entire wedding here. happy hump day!

p.s. get today's post title? 8)

p.p.s. last night's activity was ... interesting. not really my thing but cool.

magazine monday.

so, Hurricane Irene wasn't as bad as they thought, phew. it was pretty much non-existent in Manhattan (except for rain and wind). now, back to reality.

i managed to get my hands on some vintage magazines. check out these tears from the July 1973 issue of Glamour ...


i love the wide-leg pants. and who doesn't enjoy some seven & seven with their mustached boyfriend in their tennis whites after an intense game?!

happy monday! looking forward to the holiday weekend :)

hurricane irene.

the wedding i was supposed to help with today was canceled, with very good reason (phew). so here we are, waiting for Hurricane Irene. i'm sticking it out in the city in my little apt which should be, and hopefully will be, pretty safe (i'm with my bf so i at least have a buddy). we have food, water, candles, matches, movies (Stand By Me, The Goonies, Dirty Dancing, Shag, Can't Buy Me Love ... ), a stack of September issue magazines, flashlights, batteries and wine, of course :)

 i went for a run this morning in Central Park (i had to do something active before being cooped up for the rest of the weekend) ... it was life as normal ...

then the clouds started rolling in ...
and then it poured (i made it to an awning) ...

last night we went to the store to stock up on food and water, just like everyone else ...

bread aisle ... completely empty (there was a couple packages of hotdog buns left and a package of english muffins, which i snagged) ...
peanut butter, gone ...
water, almost gone ...
we managed to collect a pretty good stock of goods (apparently a hurricane is an excuse to eat junk) ...
water and wine ...

 i really hope everyone stays safe and hopefully Irene isn't as strong as they're anticipating. hang in there, east coast.

tgif!

it's friday! i did it. i completed the 5 day arm party challenge. perhaps i'll extend it through next week ... 

today's party ...


low-key, huh? sometimes i like to give my arm a break from the heavy lifting. today is more like a happy hour vs a party. and if you're wondering what that ragged yellow bracelet is that pops up in all my parties, see here.

it's been a long, busy week and i have a busy weekend ahead ... i'm helping to coordinate a wedding in the Hamptons (uh, hurricane pending. as of now, it's still on. eek) ... 

speaking of weddings, check out these lovely and cool images ... great inspiration ...

 
(love the above shot)

stay safe, east coasters! i hope happy weekend.
