As many of you know, my only daughter is about to be married in June. Then, she is literally moving to the other side of the world with her new husband. So, our time together is drawing to a close…at least for what could be a long time. Our most fun times have been either shopping or watching chick flicks together. She is my delight.
With determination, goals to accomplish, and memories in our pockets we set out Saturday for a shopping marathon. Both of us needed dresses for the rehearsal dinner….she needed honeymoon and island clothing….she needed a ring for her groom…and I always need blog material!!

La Cantera is an open air mall next to Fiesta Texas, one of our big theme parks. As you pull into the parking lot, you are also staring right up into a massive ferris wheel. One thing I love about La Cantera, is that the service and friendliness of those who work in each store is off the charts. You often feel as though you are leaving good friends when you go from store to store.
We scored big at Forever 21 for her honeymoon clothing…actually we left things we wanted behind, because we wanted so much!! We had already made a small purchase at Old Navy and the two stashes together compliment the tribal/island look she is going for.
|Fun at Forever 21!! This is one of the best stores for young trendy
looks on a budget!! I love it!
I can’t show you her rehearsal dinner look but it involves Anthropologie sun dress…a sparkly headband…and cowgirl boots!! My look came from Jones of New York at Macy’s. Her absolute…hands down…favorite purchase was her hat!! Once she discovered the treasure at Macy’s, it had to be worn the rest of the day including down to the River Walk for dinner. Thank goodness we checked off the list a fabulous ring for her hunny…and rehearsal wear…and her honeymoon clothes. The big clothing question is still ME…what will I wear to the wedding?? I have something in my head and it just hasn’t showed up in a store yet.

We laughed…shopped…ate salads at Nordstrom’s….shopped….walked from end to end….shopped….and simply enjoyed one another!!
Now for a very special THANK YOU! to Burda Style for the amazing Singer
Sewing Machine I just received. It was one of the door prizes at the Texas Style Council’s blogger’s conference in March! My daughter
is excited to take it with her to her new home…learn to sew…and maybe
teach other women who need a trade.
Also, thanks to sweet Grechen of Grechens Closet for the personal delivery!!
|A Wonderful Prize and gift for a new home!|
