For the first time in what’s felt like months, the sun shone, no snow fell, and I was happy to brave a slight chill just to wear a cute dress. I did everything from trying out a new coffee shop, dropping off clothes at the consignment shop, and then treating myself to some new Bobbi Brown makeup and Essie nail polish. Best part, I had absolutely no shopper’s remorse after my Spring-y adventure.
Fast forward a day – overjoyed at myself at not sending myself into a stressful spiral over finances (oh, the joy of our tiny grad school paychecks), I feel the need to reward myself with a little something. I mean, I spent so little money yesterday, doesn’t that mean I can spend a little today? It’s nearly 11:30 and I’ve actually resisted the urge to buy anything, but I have had fun looking up shirts for A’s Barbie Bachelorette.
The top shirt is definitely the simplest item, available for only $13 at Target (my happy place). You can also buy personalized T-shirts from Etsy or BridalPartyTees. I honestly don’t think I’d be able to decide which of the bottom two shirts I’d rather wear – I adore the diamond ring dotting the ‘I’ but I’m equally as infatuated with the Bride’s name sealed with a kiss on the bottom shirt.
Even though we’ve decided that we’re going to San Juan, in keeping with a Vegas theme, wouldn’t it be a better idea to showcase the number of years you’ve known the bride as a playing card? I’m totally inspired by this Beer Koozie from Goodman & Co Graphic Design which showcases a diamond ring in the center of the playing card. It would look great on a ‘Vegas Before Vows’ tank.
I couldn’t resist including the bottom image, particularly as it features my name 🙂
Instead of buying a pre-made shirt, you always have the option to decorate one yourself. There’s a lot of iron-on Barbie silhouettes available, but these are my two favorites:
Using iron-on’s gives you more flexibility as to what type of shirt each girl would rather wear and you could embellish them however you like.
