I have exciting news!


Dave and I are getting married! We announced it at our cocktail party on Saturday. We had actually agreed on the date (September 2011) about six months ago, but hadn’t told anyone because we think that very long engagements are a bit silly. But we just couldn’t keep it a secret any longer!

I made Dave pose for photos, but he wasn’t taking his posing duties very seriously:

And I suppose I should tell you about the outfit too! This was chosen by Eyeliah of Style Symmetry as part of the help me get dressed project (for which I’m still looking for contributions by the way!). The victory rolls hairdo was done following a video tutorial by Gemma of Retro Chick. Thank you both so much, I am so pleased with how it all came together!

dress – swap
belt – charity shop
shoes – clarks
earrings – gift
scarf – gift

jacket – vintage shop
jeans – h&m, probably
slippers – gift from me



new shoes

    So first, you look ravishing. Kudos to Eyeliah for picking a marvelous outfit.

    And second, CONGRATS! Dave might be monkeying around in the photos, but he's still got the glowy look of a happy man.

    Congratulations!!! The fact that you are wearing this outfit I styled when you tell us you are getting married has me *tickled*. It is also sweet serendipity as I am wearing the outfit you styled for me today too. 🙂

  • Amanda 23 March 2010, 4:58 pm

    Congratulations!! And you look ADORABLE. Like a classy 1940's singer

  • Lemondrop Marie 23 March 2010, 5:35 pm

    You do look adorable, both of you~ congrats. I particularly like the one where Dave's foot is thrown back so coyly!
    Those tights and shoes together are the best, great dress suggestion. Perhaps I should sign up for some suggestions myself…

    Congratulations! Best news ever, weddings are fabulous (and so are marriages…). My husband and I got married in September as well (fifteen years ago…)!

    You'll make one stunning bride, I'm sure (perhaps a bit funky, too?)…

  • Retro Chick 23 March 2010, 6:27 pm

    Congratulations! *squeals like a girl*

    Your outfit is great, well done Eyeliah! And I feel strangely touched and pleased that my video tutorial helped you do engagement announcement hair 😀 It looks great!

    Congratulations! Is it going to be a super colorful wedding? I expect no less!

  • Maven 23 March 2010, 9:03 pm

    Congratulations! Can't wait to see what you'll wear to get married–whether it's a big do or a trip to the courthouse.

  • Zel 23 March 2010, 10:01 pm

    Congratulations! You both look so happy and cute together. Oh, love the outfit too, and the hairdo 🙂

  • Chelsea 23 March 2010, 10:11 pm

    1) Oh congrats congrats!
    2) My boy never takes the photo ops seriously either. He says his face it too boring so he has to make it look funny instead.
    3) Love the outfit and the hairdo!
    4) I had a very long engagement of almost two years. But that is because I refused to study for finals and plan my wedding at the same time.

  • Kat 24 March 2010, 6:28 am

    Congratulations! That is very exciting news. I love the outfit too. THe blue tights look gorgeous. One of my aims for this winter is to wear more coloured tights. I own navy blue and purple ones but have never worn them. I really want to buy red and mustard ones too.

    Congrats! I've been purposefully NOT reading my feeds lately but this morning I specifically wondered what you were up to and gave a look through. Onscreen, you two always seems like such a cute couple, I'm sure it will be a delightful wedding/marriage.
