pretty in pink with prête-moi paris.


Last Tuesday I had the pleasure of attending the Prête-Moi Paris four year anniversary bash. Melissa, author of the iconic blog sure knows how to put on a party, arousing the girly side in all of us. Guests were delighted with Sugar Daze cupcakes adorning little chocolate Eiffel Towers, flowing effervescent pink champagne, a Campari and mint DIY cocktail station, and a vintage fashion show. In short, I was in heaven.  

Resisting rocking the pink on a rainy Parisian day, I decided to go a little Designing Women in a draped 1980s flower dress (see here), and toasted to Melissa and her four years of hard work on Prête-Moi Paris!

The Campari and mint cocktail station!
You know I was all up in here.
To my mother and her friends, Campari isn't "drinking".
Crazy Italian women from Long Island, I tell you.

Stunning!

The girl does it all, I swear.


This pink tulle made me pretty much crazy. 
I spent a better part of the event stalking this girl with my camera.
I want it.

Cheers Melissa! Thank you for including me in your special celebration. Here's to the next four years of your blog!

  1. Did you mug her for the pink dress at the end? I'm not a pink person normally, but I want it too! Maybe we need to channel our inner Pink Panther and steal it... ;o)

    1. Hahaha can you imagine? A tag team pink tulle dress burglary! Now that would make front page news! I hope who ever ends up purchasing it gives it a happy home. It deserves one. :*)

    1. I'd say the parties that you throw look pretty awesome though! I still have the Gangnam Style video you posted in my head. I think of it from time to time and giggle. I can't wait for the LPV holiday posts!
