Beer & Chocolate Pairing

 Dress: Brown/Tan/Orange Shift Dress by Igigi (26/28), ~6 years old
Tights: Catherines
Shoes: Selby (found at Savers)
Necklace: Babil & Bijou
Bracelet: Vintage
Photography: Super Boo, Kate, & Me (Canon Rebel & iPhone)
I wore this shift to attend the 10th Anniversary celebration of  Gail Ambrosius Chocolatier at Ale Asylum with Kate & Daniel. I chose this dress because it reminded me of chocolate & other words, I dressed as a truffle. I bought this dress at least 6 years ago when Igigi was having a sale, & this is the very first time I've ever worn it. How sad is that? 
This anniversary party was crazy...all the free beer & chocolate you could fit in your tummy. And Gail makes thee most absolutely amazing truffles. I must have had a dozen sea salted caramels (my favorite). Towers & plates full of dark chocolate everywhere you looked. 
I'm not much of a beer connoisseur, preferring wine & craft cocktails...but Ale Asylum had some delicious beer! My favorite was Kink (Belgium Abbey).
There were 2 plates of truffles on each table that were paired with the same beer. We couldn't try them all, even with Kate & I sharing. So much chocolate! It was an absolutely delightful party, but its been 3 weeks & I still haven't had a craving for chocolate. 
 I got these shoes at Savers for a few dollars & I love them...


  1. I, too, will dress like a confection if the mood strikes me! I think you look perfectly decadent! As always, I envy the fun and tasty events you find around town!
