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.

Ahh I love these with the colored in red! The feather dress is so beautiful and springy... yeah, glad you got to wear it before... I don't even want to say it or think about it (the snow). I think bridal showers are such fun occasions! My Gap never seems to have the good stuff :( I used my Give and Get on loungewear at Old Navy hahaha
