Heritage Tavern

 Dress: Lucia Wrap Dress from Kiyonna via Gwynnie Bee (click link for a free month)

Socks: Extraordinary Vertical Striped Cotton from Sock Dreams

Shoes: Dansko

Jewelry: Vintage

First socks of the season. I'm not a big fan of wearing shoes...I'd go barefoot all the time if I could. Second best is sandals, so I always hold out for as long as possible...well, that's not true...I know someone who says it's sandal season until there is snow sticking on the ground...I don't wait quite that long. And once real shoe season begins, I have my Sock Dreams addiction. 
I adore wrap dresses, but this is my first with a cutout neckline. I liked the look, but felt it was too loose across my chest when sitting down. I am only a C cup, so I don't have the flesh up top needed to stretch this bit of fabric. Otherwise, I was in love with this dress and plan on wearing it to work tomorrow before sending it back. 
I wore this fabulous dress to have dinner for the first time at Heritage Tavern with Kate & Super Boo last Wednesday evening. I feel so spoiled. I had 2 of the best meals of my life in one week! The 3 of us decided to split a bunch of things and most were delightfully delicious. I started off with this scrumptious drink, the Paramore (modeled here by the lovely Kate), which was made with Luxardo Bitter, St. Germain, Deaths Door Gin, & lemon. 
Although many of the things we ate were divine, these deviled eggs stole the show & I can't even tell you anything about them except there were 3 different kinds and if you order a dozen, that includes some truffled eggs as well...I have been craving more of these since taking the last bite.
Edited to add- A horrible selfie of me in the work bathroom of how I wore this dress to work on Monday. Same kind of socks from Sock Dreams, but in oranges instead of reds and a harvest orange cardigan from Avenue. 


  1. Oh my goodness, those eggs look fabulous. As do you! But the EGGS. God, I'm hungry now.

  2. I am so craving those amazing deviled eggs! I love the striking black wrap dress with its intriguing neckline, and all your warmly gleaming vintage jewelry choices. You have an eye, my dear.
