I had one of the most low key birthday weeks ever and it was fantastic. J took me out to two birthday dinners. I must be special or something. ;) One of them was at Harvest Vine, hands down one of the best restaurants in Seattle. The Yelp reviews basically tell you everything you need to know. I wanted to get a little dressed up for the dinner but had nothing to wear so went digging into the closet and came out with this little dress.
Dress: Forever 21
Shoes: Nina Ricci
Bag: Louis Vuitton
This is basically the dress version of the top that I wore in this outfit. I bought them both on the same day. I loved the dress but it was one size too big. I figured it was only $30 something so I had to get it and just make it work somehow. The belt helped give it the shape it needed or else it just hangs on my frame which makes me look about 2 sizes bigger and isn't too cute.
Since I was wearing all black I needed to jazz it up with some accessories so got out my black and yellow gold bangles and then a Blair-ish headband to complete the outfit. I usually never pose with my handbags but I did this time since it was my birthday present.
We were seated downstairs in the wine cellar and were treated to the most delectable Basque style tapas. Everything we ate was a delight, our Tempranillo was perfection and for desert I had the homemade wild berry gelato with homemade macaroons. I am drooling just thinking about it.
On my real birthday he got me cupcakes and Ro you were right, they were Trophy cupcakes!
And another birthday down, my first as a wifey. That was reason enough for me to celebrate.
The lookbook pictures are looking pretty bad. I had to edit the crap out of that one to get some color into it. Seattle weather has just turned to gray, gray and more gray. I think October will be my last lookbook pictures for awhile. We will see though, if I can manage to sneak in some morning daylight pictures I will try but I'm pretty much going to count on waking up to a dark sky.
