Stats: 5'7" 55-50-64I wore this dress out on a Saturday night & again on Tuesday to vote & spend the day with Super Boo. I had this style of dress last month in teal check...however, the fabric is completely different...this dress is the typical slippery poly, while the check was closer to flannel. My favorite pattern is paisley, so I was in love with this dress, but there was too much grey in it for me...otherwise I loved the colors, fit, & length. The lace up front doesn't lay quite right when completely laced up...I wore it folded under in a v-neck on Saturday which I liked better.
On Saturday night David, Angie, & I went out to dinner at Alchemy...we were meeting there at 5 & I was expecting this dress to come in the mail...at 4:30 our mail still hadn't come. I had done my make-up & picked out accessories based on the photos on GB. Finally at 4:39...the box was delivered...I threw it on & we left the house. The tights & shoes were a good match, but when I wore this again on Tuesday I changed my make-up, nail polish, & jewelry.
The burgers at Alchemy are so amazingly good...this was the apple rum grass fed beef burger with sweet onion rum relish, habanero aioli, & house made pickles. For dessert we walked over to Chocolatarian...I chose my 2 favorite wine pairing sweets from the night before...key lime white chocolate square & a chocolate bar with peanut butter & salted caramel.
Then on to the Hump! film fest with Dan Savage. Super Boo & I had gone 2 years ago...but missed it last year. Hump! features many short (5 minutes or less) amateur porn videos made by people of all sizes & sexual expression. It is awesome.
On Tuesday we voted for Bernie! Then went to Alchemy for lunch because I couldn't get that burger out of my mind. I had the exact same meal, including sweet potato fries...but I changed my drink from a Moscow Mule on Saturday to a Philosopher's Stone...which is what David drank on Saturday & I had been envious of. Then down the street to Gail Ambrosius to collect our free sea salt caramel for voting...& couldn't resist getting a 6 piece box to bring home...2 were eaten in the car before I snapped a photo. David & I sat in the driveway talking for a bit...I find I have some of the best conversations sitting in the car.
This is V for Vote & not peace...but peace is good too.
My make-up with this outfit included...Urban Decay eyeshadow in Chaos, a mixture of 4 orange eyeshadows from the Morphe Brushes Color Glam Palette, a mixture of Bite Beauty lipstick in Blood Orange & NYX Hippy Chic, & OPI nail polish in Aloha from OPI.
