I wore this dress to work on one day & on another to see a play. The colors in this dress were so pretty...coral & dusty rose. Before GB, I detested pink...but I'm coming around. The fit & flare style with the empire waist is a favorite silhouette of mine & the length was just above my knees. However, I would have preferred a less conservative neckline & sleeveless rather than the cap sleeves. London Times runs a tad big, which works out for me well. 
Super Boo, Kate, Angie, & I traveled to Spring Green to see A Streetcar Named Desire at American Players Theatre. I made Zucchini & Quinoa Salad with Walnuts & Shrimp Wraps with Melon/Cucumber Relish, with cherries for dessert. Kate brought the wine & Angie supplied the tablecloth, napkins, plates, & utensils. This may sound silly...but it felt much more special with an actual tablecloth & vintage mismatched cloth napkins. I like special. I realized in looking at this photo...that I sprinkled parmesan atop my wrap instead of over the squash...whoops. The shrimp wraps were AMAZING! We all agreed. If you are searching for some new picnic food...these wraps are perfection. 
Streetcar is only my second play of the season & I already know it's my favorite. I adore Tennessee Williams & this play in particular...the acting was suburb, the night was perfect. 
These photos of the play were found online, as there is no picture taking during the performance. 
My make-up with this dress included...eyeshadows from the Urban Decay Naked palettes, 1 & 3; Sephora brown eyeliner; MAC Rubenesque Paint Pot; a mixture of Bite Beauty's Blood Orange & Pomegranate, as well as OCC's Electric Grandma on my lips; & Lunch at the Delhi by OPI on my nails.

  1. I wish the dress was this lovely pink in the size 12! It's definitely coral in the one I have and that just isn't a good color on me. This dress looks great on you!
