The Blue Velvet Dress

HELLO FRIENDS! I HOPE YOU HAVE BEEN WELL AND WARM!  I BUNDLED UP AND WENT TO THE GRAND OPENING OF A RESTAURANT IN MY NEIGHBORHOOD, AS I LOVE TO SUPPORT LOCAL BUSINESS, AND THEIR FOOD IS DELISH, TOO!

YOU KNOW WELL MY PENCHANT FOR DRESSING UP AND FINDING UNIQUE, SOMETIMES ONE-OF- A- KIND DRESSES. CASE IN POINT,  THIS BLUE VELVET DRESS WITH A DISCREET CUT OUT AND FABULOUS BEADWORK. I GOT THIS AT TATIANA- 1ST DIBS, THE PRICE WAS VERY REASONABLE FOR SUCH AN OUTSTANDING DRESS. THE GRIPOIX EARRINGS BY CHANEL ARE VINTAGE, AND ARE ALSO FROM TATIANA’S. SIMILAR EARRINGS HERE , HERE, AND  HERE .

I, AND FRIENDS, WENT TO IKARIA TAVERNA FOR THE GRAND OPENING PARTY, AND THE FOOD WAS JUST DELICIOUS, WHILE THE SERVICE WAS WARM AND  ATTENTIVE. WE HAD A SALT CRUSTED WHOLE FISH, THAT SERVED FOUR,  AND IT WAS SUBLIME.

THE LOVELY RESTAURANT WAS PACKED!

THE LIVE JAZZ BAND WAS SMOOTH AND LUSH AS A MUSICAL BACKGROUND.

WE GOT THERE EARLY, AND DAEVID, GOT THIS SHOT OF ME. IT IS ONE OF MY WORST, BUT I WAS CONCENTRATING SO HARD , NOT TO BLINK MY EYES… OH WELL.

SO WE WILL GO BACK TO MY LOBBY,  JUST BEFORE WE HEAD OUT, WHERE THE PHOTOS ARE BETTER QUALITY.

HERE YOU CAN SEE MY CROCODILE BAG FROM TATIANA’S AND MY KATE SPADE GLOVES IN TURQUOISE. THE FAUX FUR IS BY TWELTH STREET BY CYNTHIA VINCENT, SIMILAR HERE .

OH HELLO, I LIKE THOSE EARRINGS YOU ARE WEARING! LOL.

MY AMETHYST , TOPAZ, AND DIAMOND BRACELET WAS ON SALE AT MADISON AVENUE JEWELERS. I WAS SHOPPING WITH A GIRLFRIEND WHEN I SPIED IT FROM THE WINDOW. IT IS MY VALENTINE’S DAY GIFT TO MYSELF, VIA HUBBY’S CREDIT CARD.  😉

OH THANKS HONEY!!!
