I wore this dress out on a Friday night. Holy buckets, was this dress tight...waaaay out of my comfort zone. It was an A-line dress that was too small on me...which turned it into a bodycon hubba hubba dress that David & Kate assured me I could wear in I did. The fabric was a lovely jacquard knit with a slight stretch in a beautiful shade of ocean blue. Melissa Masse usually fits me well in a 4x...but I can't wear fit & flares all the time. At first I felt blumpy in this dress & it made me crabby...David suggested I change outfits so we could have a fun night...but as time went on I actually felt sexy...the closeness of the dress on my body felt like a hug. I like pushing myself out of my comfort zone & GB is a great assistance with that. 
Wine & Chocolate Pairing with Kate & David. These were delicious & delightful...especially the first wine with white chocolate lime squares...heavenly...they made the wine taste citrusy. It was perfect. David & Kate fell in love with the Occhipinti's Nero d'Avola Passito & bought a bottle to split in the future. 
David & I are avid readers of Savage Love, which started here in Madison when Dan was working as a manager at my favorite video store. I've seen him speak a few times, but he was here for the weekend & was recording a podcast the first night. David submitted two questions & he answered one!
That hula hoop on stage with Dan (wearing his Bernie for President shirt) is the state of Washington...which he brings with him when he travels because pot is legal there. Dan was hilarious & I can't remember when I laughed so much at a show. 
My make-up with this outfit included...Gypsy Blue eyeliner by NYX, Urban Decay liquid liner in Siren, UD eyeshadow in Fringe & Stargazer, & NYX Simply Vamp lipstick in Bewitching. My nail polish was by OPI & a perfect match for this outfit...but I forgot to take a photo...I think it's This Color's Making Waves.
I'm linking up to Visible Monday over on Not Dead Yet Style.


  1. I love the dress, the makeup, the whole deal - you look terrific! And I'm a huge Dan Savage fan too - I have an inappropriate straight-girl crush on him. Thanks for sharing, xo


  2. That dress is GORGEOUS and gorgeous on you! I love the fit and the color -- everything about it!
