Wine, Cupcakes, and a Few Evening Shots



Forever 21 Polka-Dot Dress - XS (old) (similar)
LOFT Flower Pin (bought yesterday - 25% off this weekend!) (similar)
Aldo Patent Wedges (old) - 5 (similar)

Now I don't normally take evening pictures (ewww fluorescent lighting!) but when you have polka-dots and a big awesome-blossom flower, you pretty much have to.  Adrian and I went to an housewarming (apartment-warming?) party last night, and with the warm weather and light breeze, I decided to go with a easy breezy summer dress and some sandals.  The party was a blast and after hours were spent sitting on the patio, catching up with old friends, drinking multiple glasses of wine, and even indulging in a few mini cupcakes, we went home feeling happy and satiated.  And now I'm off to a yoga class to sweat it all out.  :)

Very sex and the city (flower pin) + pretty woman (polka dots)...I love the look! I think I work my flower pin for several months straight after sarah jessica wore hers. Seeing yours, I kinda miss it! Pretty as always.

I think this is the fist time I've ever seen indoor pictures! The dress is lovely and I'm really liking your lipstick. Where and what shade is it? I've been dying a duplicate to one of MAC's lipstick ever since I regretfully returned Big Bow from a collection awhile ago.

I love the dress, it's so classic. The party sounds like fun. I saw the picture of the cupcakes, and they looked yummy. I miss the warm weather we were having, it's already snowing again in Ohio.

You look too adorable Kileen. I love the outfit from head to toe and the photos were lovely as well. :)

I'm so happy and relieved to see you wear a thick(er) belt. I have a number of 'em, you see. I have heard some people say it's not necessarily for petites but I think it could work. You certainly made it work. And these indoor shots are turned out nicely!

@Banhannas unfortunately the lipstick is from a Taiwanese brand called Chic Choc (http://www.chicchoc.com.tw/index.aspx). the color is RD01. not sure what the equivalent for a US brand is, but maybe you can find it online somewhere...
