Registering to be married on the 21st...

and if all goes smoothly, we will be registered as a married couple that day...

Which means that tomorrow, is my last day as a Mori.

Even though I doubt things will change once this step has been made, I still feel kind of funny...
Even though I have been living apart from my family for the last 4 years, I still feel like it's different now.

I love my mum, dad, brother and sister so much, and I really could not have asked for a better family.

I look forward to sharing this new life with John, and making a better man out of him (hehe).

Thank you to my family for loving me unconditionally, and baring with me all these years.
Now your burden is John's (lucky him!)

And for my mum.... who really did put up with the most c**p from me... Thank you.

I am who I am today (good and bad, hehe) because of you. I love you

Shoes for the Wedding

These sandals/bootie from Manolo Blahnik are so beautiful!

Is it appropriate wedding shoes... not for the parties I am attending... but for mine ;)?

What do you wear to a wedding party?

Recently I've been receiving invites to wedding parties, and I am absolutely thrilled but what do you wear to a wedding party?

It's not a wedding ceremony.... do standard rules like no white, no minis apply?

Since finding a dress which isn't too cutesy is very difficult in Japan I've been searching online at great sites like which offer designers like Nicole Miller and Badgley Mischka at discounted prices and I've come across quite a few that I like but is it appropriate?

This green dress is from Nicole Miller. First of all, I adore the colour. It is the perfect shade (apple? green) of the perfect colour (green). I'd love to pair it with a clashing pair of dark wine pumps for a slightly funky wedding party at night, and nude peep toes for a wedding party by day. It's affordable and they have my size. What do you think?

This sequinned T-shirt dress by Badgley Mischka is gorgeous! The sequins are so perfect for night, but the T-Shirt cut makes it just casual enough to make it wearable during the day. Even if it may not be appropriate for a wedding I'd love to purchase it.... But doesn't buying anything with sequins on it online terrify you because you have no idea quite how shiny and sparkly it will be.

I'd love to get my hands on these dresses, but I don't know....Is it alright for a wedding party? With the right accessories, is it okay?

Nelly Furtado's brilliance... Try

Then I see you standing there, wanting more from me and all I can do is try

All the things we want each other to be, we'll never be.
We'll never be
And that's wonderful
And that's life

All that we can do is try and I say we are all trying desperately to please you

We quit doing things for you
We will do try doing things our own way and create our own success

Time flies by before you even know it
You can't stop and start life the way you see fit
You only have one chance
So take it and choreograph your own dance

Do the things that you enjoy
Be straight, be true, don't live life with a hidden ploy

Because before you know it
Time has passed. Gone by so fast there's no looking back
And everything goes black

Thank you for reminding us how precious life is.
I won't let your absence be in vain. And I promise I'll make your proud
