If you follow us on Instagram, then you might of caught our story of a recent night out with The Girls at Joey's Restaurant. Everyone kept asking what the occasion was...a birthday? A celebration? What? Nope, just Thursday!
We also got to resurrect on of our original chokers from the 90's as well as Tasseled Necklace we had hiding in our jewelry box. That's the fun thing about jewelry, it's not about wearing it everyday or how often you wear it - it's about being able to call upon pieces when the mood or the occasion calls for it. Bonus points for when it reinvents what you already have in your closet which can be even more satisfying than getting a new dress!
To start we feasted on a family style presentation of appetizers that included Night Market Curry Dip, Hawaiian Tuna Tacos and Osaka Style Pressed Salmon Sushi. Note to self- next time order more of the Pressed Sushi...it was to die for!
And then we feasted some more! You can never go wrong with Steak Frites. Unless you are a vegetarian, then it would not be the right choice. Good thing JOEY Restaurant has some options for both Vegetarians and Celiacs, who were also at the table.
Cheers to these custom, crafted Elderflower Collins Cocktails! They were the perfect color to match our table arrangements from Sunflower Florist. Yes, we brought our own flowers...because that's just how we roll.
You would think that Jasmine had planned her nails and sequined Little Pink Dress to match our drinks as well, but pinky swear that was just a happy coincidence!
And these two! They are just the cutest! Diana is what we like to call a BRIEND. A briend is what you get when one of your past brides becomes one of your lifelong friends! Get it? Bride + Friend = Briend.
Diana and Hannah from Little Pink Dress Design. Hannah made Jasmine's sparkly little number, pictures below and Diana's daughter christening outfit- now that's what we call range!
What do you get when a microblader, a costume designer and a makeup artist walk into a room? Three super stylish women, obviously! Sarah just opened a chic Gastown Micro-pignemtation Loft and Claudia Da Ponte is one of Vancouver's most sought after stylists and costume designers for television.
If you are curious about Micro-Pigmentation and how to "wake up with makeup" as she calls it, check out her studio, KILLENIT STUDIO where she combines her two great loves...tatooing and makeup!
This beauty needs no introduction! In fact, you are probably already following Jasmine on Instagram!
Thank you to Ellen Ho of Hong Photography for all the beautiful photos of the evening! We are huge fans of Ellen! HUGE! She also photographs all of our Look Books , many of our brides and countless editorials featuring our jewellery! We previously blogged our most recent one that was featured in Wedluxe, here.
So there you have it! A fun, fabulous friends night out where we ate, drank and be merry-ed the night away! Julia Child was really onto something when she came up with this Quote lettered by Lele Chan Designs.
