Wish you had been invited to Jessica Simpson's baby shower? Already had your dress picked out?
You can still get gussied up and pretend you were there, because the 31-year-old singer just released a video of the March 18 festivities and it feels like you're there!
As you watch you can also cheer for Jessica as she arrives looking beautiful, but ready to pop, in a long, ruffled, snakeskin print dress with her wavy golden hair pulled back in tiny braids.
Then it's time to...
Mill about with guests, check out the buffet, join some cute old ladies giving a lesson on how to knit booties and even watch Simpson open a present or two and gush over the contents—think pink cowboy boots, a pacifier and frilly dresses.
The Fashion Star mentor wanted to give her fans a fly on the wall perspective of her big day and wrote on her website, "Creating a family is the best thing I've done in my life." She added, "I really hope I can be half as good of a mom as my mom has been to me."
The fabulous event was organized by celebrity party planner, Mindy Weiss, who told Us Weekly, "It was a kid friendly shower." That certainly seemed to be the case as BFF Jessica Alba brought 8-month-old, Haven, and little sis Ashlee Simpson carted along her boy, Bronx, 3.
And what a lovely event it seemed to be. We wouldn't know for sure, because we weren't invited either, but it looks like everyone had a great time.
