so far we have done DIY and floral events, but we were definitely still missing a fashion element.


being a huge lover of vintage dresses, i knew i wanted to have an event that celebrated women’s individual style. it was a two hour event at shareen vintage, we all tried on dresses, danced around, had champagne and snacks and jesse took portraits of all of the attendees in their new vintage threads…


so fun, right? i loved meeting a bunch of new, creative gals and hanging out with my friends that came as well. barrett made a whole bunch of beautiful crostinis and cheese snacks (of course i ate far too much of it.) yasmine, a wonderful florist, provided adorable bouquets for all of the guests to take home after the event.


my favorite part was watching the girls have fun in front of the camera with their friends. the top right is my sister and i…i’m happy she lives close by now!


and here’s a couple of my friends and i at the end of the night…


i am not sure why the cheerleader poses came into play…maybe a little too much champagne? each of these woman have impacted my life…inspired me, pushed me, gave me solid advice, listened to my struggles, shown me strength, blew my mind with their creativity, made me laugh, and made my life in LA very very special. i am so grateful for these ladies!

thanks for all of you that came out to this event! we will be holding more events very soon. -bri

    Looks like so much fun!! This pics are making me smile so big:) I have a question. I’m planning on doing a cleanse like you recently did. How was the transition from cleansing to eating the foods you love like crostinis and cheese snacks (my favorite)? Was your body shocked? I want to cleanse my system but still be able to return to the yummy foods I enjoy.

    Much love, http://myomlife.com/

    My grandmother had that dress in the top left with the apples or cherries! Her top was black but the bottom skirt was exactly the same.

    This has inspired me to pull out my vintage dresses that sit in my closet and never see the light of day. Has anyone heard of shoe designer Sophia Webster…. http://www.grungeriot.com/pop I want a pair, would look super cute with these outfits. Don’t even ask the price lol !!

  • 18. Ann E. Mayer  |  October 25th, 2013 at 1:14 am

    It looks like everybody had a blast especially posing for the camera. I would enjoyed it too if i were in that kind of event. All the vintage dresses worn by your guests were beautiful. I love your sister’s vintage dress although i was hoping for a full photo of that dress but i think it’s really fabulous.
