Today was a lovely day to celebrate, and that we did. Bobby and I had every intention of making the trip to D.C., but he was unable to secure the time off. I'm sure it would have been near impossible anyway, but the idea was lovely. Instead, we spent the day in high spirits, enjoyed a wonderful lunch at 'Snice and did some grocery shopping. I also grabbed a couple of goodies from Beacon's, with my leftover credit. I got a lovely little vintage, velvet beret and another coat. I'm sure you'll see them both soon.
By the way, if you enjoy vegetarian fare, go to 'Snice and order the Thanksgiving Leftovers sandwich. Best thing, ever. Bobby swears by the Potpie wrap, but while that is also good, it pales in comparison. I think I could eat that every day.
(I later changed belts to the pink one above...sorry this one looks a little ridiculous, outside of the loops like that. I forgot to take another picture after changing.)
My outfit details:
vintage beret - from my mom's store
scarf and coat - h&m
80s dress - thrifted and altered (shortened, taken in, took up the waistline a few inches)
fuchsia tights (they look red here, but they're very pink in real life): Hue - I've had these since high school
belt - from my mom's store
vintage purse - gift from my mom
boots - beacon's closet
obama pin - yayyyyy
His outfit details:
coat - Robert Geller
shirt, shoes and sweater - h&m
tie - I think that was from my mom
jeans - either from Target or 4 Stroke, all of his jeans are from either of the two places. Can you tell I'm winging this one?
Hooray for the USA and our new President!
P.S. I was without internet (again) for a few days, and I'm having a heck of a time catching up on emails, comments, etc. I literally have over a thousand emails from when I was gone...I have barely made a dent. That being said, I know a lot of you requested a blog link swap. If you want to swap links, let me know on this post and I will do them all in one shot. Thanks!
