This dress was given to me last year by the owner of a coffee shop I used to frequent. His mother got it in Egypt- I think that's the story. It's brown silk with amazing metallic silver embroidery. I put it in the closet when he gave it to me and completely forgot about it.
I've put this dress in the costume portion of my closet but I've still never even tried it on until today. I finally gave it a shot and it fits this busty gal wonderfully. I'm not sure if I'll wear it for anything other than a costume because its kind of boho-granny-ish. I feel like it'll work for an older lady, you know? Does that make sense?
Of course I had to pair it with my amazing Vixy leopard boots and aqua blue lips inspired by the super cute young eccentric blogger Zoe of Girl with the Flower.
The makeup is my favorite $1 eye shadow sticks by LA Colors. The sticks come in sooo many colors and I'm on a mission to collect them all. They suck as eye shadow but work perfectly for my constant need for face paint (parties an events, WFW, "just because" dress up time, etc.) and they're easy to clean off.
Tonight I made some super herby turkey burgers and accidently made an eggy... sperm...
The patties were loaded with ground rosemary, basil and purple onion. I topped them with mozzarella, egg, tomato, baby spinach, baby bella mushrooms and a pesto mayo lemon sauce I invented.
Well, now it's time to bring this post to a close. I've got a super fussy three month old baby demanding my attention. Have a good night!
