Miss to Mrs: Bridesmaid Proposal Boxes

bridesmaid, wedding, proposal

Now that My Fiancé has proposed and asked me to marry him it's my turn to pop the question to my friends and ask them to be my bridesmaids!  Bridesmaid Proposal boxes are a fun new trend that you may incorporate into your wedding activities. I knew I wanted to ask my "bride tribe" to stand by my side with a unique gift that was personalized and representative of myself and the theme of my upcoming wedding.

Nike Cortez 45th Anniversary + Gigi Hadid

Originally launched in 1972 as a running style, the Nike Cortez has enjoyed a long run as a lifestyle sneaker, particularly in Southern California. Making the location of the 45th-anniversary event at the Grove in Los Angeles California an obvious choice. I had the opportunity to attend the athletic brand's celebration for the Cortez sneakers hosted by none other than the face of the latest Cortez campaign Bella Hadid.

The Nike staple is synonymous with authentic urban street style. Also, the "OG" Nike Cortez as the shoe is fondly referred to has a history of impacting pop culture and the fashion industry. From Tom Hanks iconic performance as Forrest Gump who ran straight into our hearts in none other the iconic Nike Cortez because "for no particular reason he decided to go for a little run." To Farrah Fawcett who was able to strike the perfect balance as America's sweetheart in The quintessential '70s photo — big hair, tiny skateboard, bellbottoms, Nike Cortez.

Bella Hadid hosted the event participating in a fashion Q & A. Guests were then invited to shop, while swaying to the beats provided by the DJ and enjoying lite bites, and personalized fashion illustrations by the talented Jamie Lee Reardin. The highlight of the event was the Nike ID –personalization station that allows sneakerheads and trendsetters to customize shoes in various fabrications, colors and personalized embossing for starters.

A special thank you to the Nike family for including me in in the Cortez celebration. If you've been contemplating a new pair of lifestyle sneakers, the  Nike Cortez sneakers are a stylish way to put your best foot forward so basically just do it!

Miss to Mrs

I'm now a fi·an·cé which is French and pretty dang fancy!
My boyfriend proposed to me at our anniversary dinner. The proposal took place at Steakhouse 55 which is located in the Disneyland hotel. The proposal was intimate and pure romance because fun fact when the love of your life proposes to you the moment will be picture perfect and the fairytale beginning to happily ever after.

My journey from Miss to Mrs is guaranteed to be anything but picture perfect, but I plan to share a few highlights from the journey. From the fashion-focused saying "yes to the dress", engagement photo shoots, and of course bridal events.

I'm in no way an expert, but I will be sharing any savvy tips I pick up along the way!
