Filed under: What I'm Rocking
For GK’s birthday party, I knew I wanted to wear something fab. The ensemble I’d envisioned was ruined by low quality satin, so I did some thinking and came up with this little number:
Black & white polka dot dress: Goodwill – I got this dress at the Savannah Downtown Goodwill back in 2007. I’ve long considered having it hemmed to knee-length but I’ve never been able to fully embrace the idea. GK and I agreed to leave it as-is. The gypsy look ended up working out very well for me last night, so I’m keeping it just as it is.
Purple ombre knit beret: Forever 21 – I bought this last month & was finally able to wear it. Love, love, love it. Will be a winter fave for certain. Thinking about needing more knit berets, as I LOVE the look. Chic, not overly bohemian.
Leopard print pony hair booties by Jessica Simpson: Piperlime – I bought these last month. Just as I suspected, they are not so comfy. 😦 Jessica, why do I keep falling for the okey doke? Damn you! These ended up in the coat closet after an hour or so.
Black opera length leather gloves: UK adult website whose name escapes me – Amy got me these for Christmas in 2006, I believe. I was feening for some leather opera length gloves, and we were looking for a version way less than $300. She got me the red ones for my birthday the next year. And I love them all. Gloves are a particular weakness for me, looking forward to new ones.
Gold double hooped earrings: One of those teeny bopper stores (Wet Seal, Body Central, etc.) – I love these and don’t wear them nearly often enough! I thought they took the gypsy dress to being truly boho-chic. You’ll see them again soon. 😉
The party was super fab – great people, fun times, but I was especially impressed by the delicious spread of food prepared by Andreas. I love all of his European-syled appetizers, which were too pretty to not photograph and too tasty to not eat a lot…:
The watermelon with goat cheese and mint canape was my fave. Tasty and low cal. I’m knocking it off soon. Thanks, Andreas.
