I wore this outfit to see an afternoon play with Kate & to go out to dinner afterwards. I love Cherry Velvet...their style & the fact that they make clothing for everyone (size XS-4X)...however, this was not my favorite dress of theirs. Often the 3x fits me in this brand, but certain styles are a bit tight & I wish I could size up. While Cherry Velvet makes size 4x dresses, GB does not carry them. As this dress was too tight on me, I don't feel I can comment much on the fit. I adored the brilliant blue & added red accents throughout the outfit because I loved the way they looked together.  An all solid color outfit with no patterns, what?! 
Kate bought me this lovely Dracula book purse that I dearly treasure & it hangs on my office wall at home right next to me, however, I rarely use it as it can only fit the essentials & I prefer to carry everything I own in my daily bag. 
The gorgeous girlie wearing a GB housebrand dress that she owns. I am not sure why this photo of her is so much lighter than the ones she took of me?? As this was our last play together for the season, we thought the APT sign was an appropriate backdrop. I have one more indoor play with Super Boo in November. The view from my seat...
Edward Albee's Seascape was...interesting. I think the above photo I found online really says it all. Yes, those are 2 people dressed up as lizards...he won a Pulitzer Prize for this play. Kate & I agreed we were pleased to have seen it, but would not need to go again. 
After the play, I was craving mac & cheese...Kate & I decided we'd pick up her boyfriend & go to Graze...but luckily, they were closed on Sunday, so we had to try someplace new. MACS (Macaroni and Cheese Shop) was delicious & exactly what I wanted. I hadn't tried them before because I erroneously thought they were a chain. I had the traditional mac & cheese, Daniel went for the Jalape├▒o Popper, & Kate picked the best one, Popeye Mac. YUM. Mac & Cheese is my ultimate comfort food. 
My make-up this day included...Deep Blue eyeliner by NYX, Love + eyeshadow from Sugarpill, Urban Decay eyeshadow in Stargazer, Stila Liquid Lipstick in Beso, & O'Hare & Nails Look Great by OPI on my nails. 


  1. Aha, you look great in plain colours as well as prints, and I love that cardi tied under the bust. Mmm, comfort food is something I'm craving now it's dark by 6.30 pm. Mashed potatoes feature high on the list!

  2. Would love a closeup of the bag! I tried a cardi tied under the bust today for the first time thanks to you rocking the look!
