    Diamond Bridal Gallery Fashion Show

    Okay, I know it's been a while, but here's what I've been doing lately:

    Last week I was asked by Diamond Bridal Gallery to accompany them at a fashion show in Napa to take photos throughout the event (yippeeeee!). The fashion show was to be held at the Petaluma Woman's Club:

    Diamond Bridal Gallery is really unique because they are the exclusive importer for Ukrainian fashion designer, Oksana Mukha. And let me tell you--she designs the most gorgeous, exquisite dresses I've ever ran my fingers across. I'm almost afraid to touch them!

    Here's a photo of everyone lined up at the end of the show:

    This is one of my favorite photos of the day. Ahh, so high fashion!

    Before the show, a couple of us went outside to do a little shoot of our own. By the way, the polka-dot dress if from Diamond Bridal Gallery also:

    Doesn't she remind you of Scarlett Johansson??? (I posted the real Scarlett Johanson photos below this one so you can compare.)

    Here's a look at more of the gorgeous gowns!

    I think this is an awesome wedding dress!

    ...and a little up-close detail for ya: (it reminds me of a fancy-fied exotic bird)

    Doesn't this dress remind you of Snow White? That hand is just begging for a poisonous apple...

    Here's all the girls together:

    ...a little stolen moment...
    Uh-oh, check out who's in the middle...it's me! Towards the end of the night, I reluctantly posed with the girls. Hmmm, I sure do look short. Oh, and look who's beside me (to the right). It's Seniya--the owner of Diamond Bridal Gallery! She's a sweetheart. We're planning on working together a lot more. We've got some fun stuff ahead, so be on the look out.
    Pheww, it was a long day. But--I met new friends, touched beautiful dresses, ate delicious meatballs, rode in Mari's car (which was a fabulous adventure in itself. I declared her my new "auntie".), and found out what a Women's Club is all about. All in all: fun.

    You've gotta check out the bridal and evening gowns for yourself:
