I wore this fabulous foxy floral frock to girlie happy hour & to see The Pines & The Sills play at High Noon. I'm kind of in love with this dress. I really like the fit of Cherry Velvet dresses...they are tight on top & then flare out, which I feel is flattering on me. Most Cherry Velvet dresses run big & this 3x fit me wonderfully. The fabric is a nice heavy weight & I adore all the flowers & colors in this dress. I want a whole wardrobe of this style of dress.
Super Boo helped me choose these teggings to wear underneath the dress...I nearly went with bright yellow...these are perfect. 
I am wearing eyeshadow from the Urban Decay Vice 2 palette. I love UD shadows. 
New spring drink menu at Merchant! Our first drinks of the night: Beet for Kate & The Young Cardinal for me. Both went on my list of 'Merchant Drinks I Like'...our second drinks did not. 
 2 Girlies in Cherry Velvet dresses are better than 1!
Other than when we saw them in the living room at The Anna Lee, this was the best performance by The Sills I've seen...the sound is great at The High Noon Saloon. And...they had a fantastic new bootleg CD for sale that I can't get out of my head. 
The Pines were wonderful...mellow haunting Americana. We especially enjoyed Benson's soft raspy voice. I am looking forward to seeing them again in September at The Shitty Barn. 


  1. Oooh, that dress is so gorgeous!

    1. Thank you! It really is. I wish I could buy them all!

  2. This dress is on its way to me right now, and I recently had the purple dot one that is pictured on your friend. I love the way these fit, and I can't wait to try the dark floral.

    1. How did you like it? I LOVE Cherry Velvet Dresses.
