Thumblina Goes to a Colorful Fiesta!

  On Saturday, I went to a colorful fiesta themed party in honor of one of my favorite couples. The invitation arrived a few weeks ago, dressed perfectly in monochromatic purple. It suggested that everyone arrive in "colorful attire." Being a sucker for themes and requests, I've been planning my outfit for two weeks. All I knew was that I had to find the most colorful outfit that was also...cool.  (It was 90 degrees in the Valley, like as if!)
   The day of, I still didn't have a clear picture of what I wanted to wear. I chose my Christian Louboutin espadrilles because, those ribbons are the definition of "festive." For hair, the milkmaid was perfect. To up the ante, I chose to put the flower bobby pins again in my hair. This look reminds me of "Thumblina." I certainly feel like a pixie wearing it. For the outfit, I went with a bubblegum crop top and vintage yellow skirt made by JAX (my father's brand.) All summer long, I've been wanting to break out a lovely find from Jenni Kayne--a kiss infested clutch that would wake up several "sleeping beauties."
  The party was a hit and I felt right at home among the colored banners and animal pinatas. With a belly full of tacos, I went home with a smile, love in my heart for my dearest friends and a new pet that I dubbed "Leo." Ole!
