On Sunday Rydog and I had an afternoon tea to celebrate our upcoming wedding. I guess one might call it a kitchen tea but, since I don't like a lot of the traditions associated with weddings, we kept it somewhat unconventional. My parents organised it and went to so much effort for me. I especially loved the pretty little tea cups and the macaroons, cupcakes and sushi. We also receieved many gifts for the house. I used to think that household items were kind of boring but that is definitely not the case. I like all my household items to be as colourful and patterned as possible and so far I've got quite a collection of cool items. It made me realise that there are other exciting items to spend my money on other than clothes and shoes. At the afternoon tea, my parents asked everyone to write some advice about married life. My mum's advice was for me to stop buying clothes. Whatever for?!?!
I bought this dress and cardigan awhile ago and I'd been saving them to wear today. It's interesting that I used to absolutely hate yellow but now I love it; I like how much of a statement a bright yellow cardigan can make. I love the sparkles on the cardigan too; they even matched my hairstyle which my mother in law kindly did for me. I'm planning to do a proper outfit post on my dress at a later stage; the back is interesting and I like the shape. I borrowed the shoes from my sister. We've both been in love with them ever since she bought them. I wish they were mine!
A rather uncharcateristic pose for little Julie. Rydog snapped a picture of her mid meow.
