I wore this ensemble to have drinks with the girlie & then to work the next day. I normally love the Francescas, but this one was a bit off...however, this is a case of turning a so-so dress into an outfit I was excited to wear. The dress fit great with the exception of some gaping up top...I had to pin it so it didn't flop around sloppily. This is an inconsistent issue for me with Igigi...many times the surplice neckline sits beautifully & shows just the right amount of skin. The pattern was not my favorite, although it appears I become a fan when I pair it with polka dots...same fabric in a shirt. There are dashes of color that I wish were red...but appear to most often read a deep coral. I found this fabulous dotty cardigan with rhinestone buttons for $5 & the shoes were a steal at $4. 
Gib's opened in an old remodeled house over the summer & we've been meaning to go ever Kate & I were not first in line to check it out...but I'm glad we finally did. Monday was a good night as we were the only people there the entire time. 
The girlie started with a 77 Kelvin (Letherbee Gin, lime, & shattered herbs {liquid nitrogen}) was amazing. I began with Plum Drunk (plum vodka, lemon cordial, concord grape), which was also tasty. Our bartender was friendly & suggested a variant on Kate's first drink for her second & added Malört, while I chose to try out a Nitro Amaretto Sour (Amaretto, lemon, pineapple, & argan oil). The verdict, yum! I need to go back just to try their sea urchin ice cream. 
I had to use the dreaded flash to photograph our second drinks as the lighting was minimal. 
My make-up with this outfit included...Urban Decay eyeliner in Zero, NYX liquid liner, Too Faced eyeshadows in Golden Nugget & #selfie, MAC lipstick in Bronze Shimmer with a dab of Nars Golshan, & OPI polish in I Sing in Color. 
I'm linking to Visible Monday on Not Dead Yet Style...I adore all the stylish women on there.
