A shower in black and white

This weekend I went to Cape Cod for my Sister-in-law-to-be's first bridal shower! I went with my Sister and Mom and it was fun to have an almost all girl's weekend.

The Feather Dress
The Esme Feather Dress from Urban Outfitters made it's debut, and the Seychelles were a huge hit.

As you can see, both my Sister and the Bride-to-be tower over me (even when I'm in my 4" heels!)

My Sister is wearing the Tiered tulle dress from the Gap, which is on sale in the store, but not online (another reason why I'm so upset to be losing my Gap). Using the Give and Get discount, she got this $90 dress for $30.
