Stats: 5'7" 55-50-64I got this lovely flocked dress during City Chic's big sale earlier this year for $20. I wore this dress twice...once to have dinner with Kate & again for errand running & work...only because David was out of town when I wore it the first time...so I needed photos. I bought a similar one in red, but this one has an all over print with a cut-out in back...it's a heavy-ish knit...but it will be a good spring dress on its own.
I still can't believe I found this amazing velvet jacket at Savers for under $10. I wish there were more plus size thrifters online...I follow quite a few second hand shoppers, but they are all single digit sizes. My favorite is Sheila at Ephemera.
I grabbed these purple & gold baroque Docs on sale at Modcloth for $50...they are all over eBay right now for much more...& this victorian wallpaper pattern is also available on shoes, but I think I'll resist.
My first order from Society +...the sale was too good to pass up & I've been drooling over their clothes on Instagram for a while now. I got two dresses...Waverly Street Skater Dress in Dark Green & I'm Plaidered Skater Dress in Purple...also a caged crop top in red that is a bit big on me...I should have sent it back & gotten a size smaller...but I never got around to it. Both dresses fit great & I'm excited to wear them.
On the day I wore this outfit to have dinner with Kate...this is what it looked like...Kate took this photo on her walk to work...she has a great eye...
The girlie & I had plans to see a movie, but first, dinner...accidental restaurant week...the day before, David & I went to Samba & then Kate & I ended up here. We used to plan our restaurant weeks, but have since gotten bored of it...I don't think most restaurants serve their best food...but this Heritage Tavern menu looked delicious...
For our appetizer...Kate chose the roasted beet salad...& I got the sweet potato & duck soup. Also, crazy yummy cocktails...
Kate tried the Evergreen & Ruby first, then Gourds Galore later...while I had a Cherries Jubilee followed by a Grey Garden.
I had to have the fish in curry sauce for my entree, & Kate went with winter root vegetables which were ridiculously good.Interactive dessert...Kate pouring champagne on her tangerine sorbet while I devoured chocolate. The meal was a delight, as it always is. It was snowing quite heavily when we finished, so we decided to skip the movie.
My make-up with this outfit included...NYX eyeliner in Deep Purple; Goldmine, Freakshow, Beat Down, & Bones eyeshadow by Urban Decay; Bite Beauty lipstick in Aubergine; NYX Lip Palette in The Plums; & OPI Ink nail polish by OPI.
