I’m literally the Wertz.

Emily Allers, of Arm Party Central, got married!!

Wow, it’s been so long where do I begin? 2016 was a year where only the highlights need be remembered. Biggest, brightest highlight of my year? Becoming THE. WERTZ. WIFE. EVER. (If you aren’t following me, I interchange the word ‘Wertz’ for “worst”). Anyways, the day was May 1st, 2016 and it was that dreamy, blissful, champagne filled day that everyone hopes. Like, ‘pinch me, I don’t know how I got so lucky’ and all that bullshit, type of spectacular. The weekend was set at The Saguaro Scottsdale . My soul sister of a hotel, filled with so much vibrance, you feel like you got punched in the face with fun, sunshine and tequila all at once. We had a full weekend of activities: Hiking, Top Golf, a Saturday Pool Party, a Rehearsal Dinner and then the Wedding Sunday Funday. The ceremony took place outside in a park just behind the hotel, with the reception at The Clayton on the Park.

We had so many family and friends fly in for the weekend. And bless lil sweet 18+ Jesus, no kids. Our Wedding party topped off at about 26. Yes, 26 booze filled brides babes and groomsmen. Anyways, there is so much to say, but the video will do a better job than i can.

Major thanks to our Parents, Wedding Party, Family & Friends. And to the team that made this happen, you are pretty much majestic unicorns doing the work of fairies, with magical powers of perfection.  Jeff and I can’t Thank You enough!!!

LE TOTE-ally Obsessed.

Ask me what I’m wearing and 9 times out of 10, it’s LE TOTE. Yes, if there was an addicts anonymous, I’d need to go to a meeting [but you bet your booty I’d show up wearing fabulous LE TOTE piece]. Since that doesn’t exist yet, I’ll be letting my addiction to LE TOTE flourish. Here is just a snapshot of some of my favorite pieces at the moment.

xo, unhealthily addicted.

obsession confession: LETOTE.

I really should be confessing more obsessions, like champagne, selfies, brunch etc. but for now, let’s focus on what is trumping all of that: LETOTE! For $49 a month, you get to fill up your closet with stylized picks of a mix of clothing and accessories. You wear them, keep what you want, send back what you don’t. Best part?? You don’t have to do laundry! Send back the clothing and accessories, in the prepaid bag and in 2 days you will have another package at your door! You literally have a brand new wardrobe for every week for a month for $49. Doesn’t. Get. Better.

xo, emily
