Stats: 5'7" 55-50-64I adore unexpected color combinations & rather like these GB house brand faux wraps. I am not a fan of the asymetrical neckline...one side lays flat, while the other is drape-y...but these come in such a variety of fun patterns...I'm willing to overlook that one flaw. This is an otherwise fabulous style of dress that I can wear in either the 4 or 5x. I purchased it in this amazing fan print...& have also enjoyed wearing it in autumn leaves & retro floral.
Farmers' Market. Jamie, our friendly mushroom pusher, took our photo in front of their booth. After market...girlie brunch at Heritage Tavern. I often keep my phone in my bra when walking around without a purse...on this occasion my camera lens acquired some boob sweat & all my photos during brunch had a dull haze over them...which I didn't figure out until I was taking some pictures at home later. So, our hazy food was a market veggie omelet & for me...Heritage Tavern Benedict (porchetta, spinach, 'nduja hollandaise, cherry tomatoes, fried poached egg). And the reason brunch was invented, cocktails...the girlie had a market champagne cocktail (with housemade pear syrup) & I happily sipped a Daybreak (Death's Door vodka, Galliano, dry orange curaçao, orange, dry resiling).
On this day, 17 years ago...I drove to Chicago to meet Kate for the first time. It was one of the best & bravest decisions of my life. What started out as a romance turned into the best friendship I've ever had. Kate is always there for me when I need her...for silly fun times & to listen to me when I'm sad or crazy...& everything in-between. My life is better with her in it & I look forward to many more years of memory making with my girlie.
My make-up with this outfit included...Urban Decay eyeliner in Zero, Sephora eyeliner in Brown, NYX eyeshadow from the Warm Neutrals & Brights palette, Dubonnet Amplified lipstick by MAC, & OPI nail polish in The Spy Who Loved Me with Conga-Line Coral on top.
