Here are some photos from my lovely engagement party earlier today and the beautiful homemade desserts me and my grandma made -- she made, I iced and decorated.
My grandma threw me this gorgeous party at her residence (cheetah print wall-paper and all -- my hero!!) and it was just perfect!!! There were no less than four amazing cakes, plus cookies, champagne, cheeses, chocolates...and real food too, that was no less ridiculously sinfully yum!
The dress is from Park Bravo in Istanbul, and it this wonderful stretch cotton. I love the unexpected bright, retro florals, and I'm counting on this dress to carry me into fall with some chunky sweaters, motorcycle boots and (artfully) ripped tights.
Anyway, Im so thankful for today and for my wonderful family and friends that shared it with me!
Like I mentioned a couple posts ago, I am really missing my dog Portia, and since I am in Istanbul and experiencing real dog days of summer (its super hot!!!) I figured I'd post some other really awesome people like me who love their dogs. I'd love to post pictures of you guys and your dogs if you want to send me some -- send to firstname.lastname@example.org. In the meantime, here are some glitterati and their pooches:

Has anyone heard of these ridiculously chic flat espadrilles? They come in about 4 styles and countless colors/prints, and are impossibly cool and effortless. I love the ad campaign, which is equal parts smutty and classic, kind of like the MyMu Girl/Guy.

MYMU creator Gabriela Lanardonne was raised between Buenos Aires and Manhattan, and both those worlds collided when she combined the traditionally cool, functional alpargatas with New York's functional, comfortable sensibility and a quality high enough to withstand constant pavement pounding.
Most of the shoes run (no pun intended) around $160-180, and are cotton canvas + jute.
