Good thing he did, btw...the Monday we were supposed to go was rainy, blustery, and kind of cool. The day we went? BEAUTIFUL, sunny, gorgeous, lovely, I could go on and on...
Before he showed up to get me and the babies (they went with my dad, though), I got dressed to my springtime nines, dragged out my D70, and did some self portraits of the outfit.
The Lucille dress served me well. I not only loved the outfit and its colorful bits, but it was really comfy, too (although the Pia pumps did hurt a bit at the very end of the night).
Spring Trench. I reviewed it here. It is sold out (in this hue) but often pops back.
Necklace: Banana Republic. I have had this one for a long time and don't wear it a lot, but it does come out at least twice a year.
Dress: J. Crew Lucille Dress in Scalloped Eyelet. I did a review here. It fit me much better on this evening than on the night of the review. ;)
Bag: J. Crew Collection.
Shoes: J. Crew Collection Pia Calf Hair Pumps. Bought them off ebay for 99 dollars, much less than I ever saw them on-line. These pop back every once in awhile, but I recommend going the ebay route.
Above is the polyvore of this outfit.
A lot of the drinks and food items are based on historical recipes, so if you are a foodie AND you like American history, get to this restaurant before it closes at the end of this month.
"Song One" by Doug Aitken, it was a multimedia presentation of the song "I Only Have Eyes for You," sung by multiple singers in a film that was projected onto the walls of the museum.
Perfection. That was that evening.
Okay, that's all. I am really tired and I am ready for a full day tomorrow (Angus and I are heading to the city so I can take him to his first museum!). I have been bad about commenting back, but again, I am definitely reading them and appreciating them, so THANK YOU! \
Have a great, beautiful, utterly perfect night!
