So we're heading out with our friends to night for dinner. There's this wonderful little restaurant called Carmelo's in West Vancouver that my husband and I love going to. It's a small intimate restaurant that serves the yummiest Italian dishes. The first time we went to Carmelo's was on my birthday. The food is great and the prices are even better. Crazy as it sounds, my favorite item in the restaurant is the spread that is served with their bread. It's free but I LOVE it! I'm going to find out exactly what it is tonight when I'm there.
Anyway, we're going to be having dinner with the Sinclairs; our daughters go to school together. We've talked about getting together for dinner for about 2 years (crazy, huh?) and it's finally happening! Anyway, after dinner, we're going to go take the girls to Dundarave to see the Christmas Trees. Apparently there's over a hundred decorated trees. That ought to be fun!
Since it's freezing outside - tonight the temperature should be hovering around zero degrees, I've decided that I really need to bundle up. So, I'm going to be wearing my cozy, yet festive black Cashmere Sequin Cardigan. Under that, I'm going to wear the Perfect Fit Flower Tee in Camel, Jeans and a pair of chunky-heel brown boots. To accessorize, I'll be wearing my Crystal Dot Enamel Bracelet, a pony hair belt in a Leopard Print and carry my new Serengeti Clutch purse. And to keep me warm as we walk outside tonight, I'll be wearing my newest coat purchase - the Plaza Cashmere coat with Thinsulate plus a black wool scarf, of course.
I've only worn the Cashmere Sequin Cardigan one other time. It is a size Small and it fits perfectly. (I wear a size 4 top). It hasn't pilled much as others had noted. It is warm and I love the feel of the cashmere. I also like how the sequin adds a bit of flash without looking like I'm some Cabaret act.
I love the Camel color of the Perfect Fit Flower Tee but the placement of the flower is in a really wrong place! Has anyone else noticed that? Before I got out tonight, I'm going to cut and resew the flowers and place them in a better spot. Otherwise, what's the point of having the flowers, right? I wear a size Small in the Perfect Fit Flower Tee.
Cashmere Plaza Coat - I love this coat as well. It is a size 4 and it's a perfect fit. I had originally purchased it in a size 6 and it was way too big on me. It looked like I was playing dress up in my mom's stuff! Since I'm only 5'4" tall, it stops just above my knee. It's very cozy and warm and is the perfect topper for very cold weather.
Serengeti Clutch - I have a love-hate relationship with this clutch bag. I love the print and the patent leather. It's the perfect size and the strap is ideal. My only complaint is that the zipper hangs out. Isn't that crazy? A long zipper runs horizontally across the bag when you lift the flap. However, the zipper doesn't end at the edge of the bag but continues for about an inch and hangs outside the bag. I just don't get it. But it's an unusual piece and I would be hard press to find something else like it so I've decided to keep it. I'm going to find a way to fix that zipper though.
So, what are your plans for this evening? And, what will you be wearing? Whatever you have planned, I hope you'll have a wonderful evening!
