pinterest board, compiling the looks and styles and drinks i liked for the theme, bought a bunch of fringe and sequin trim to .... hoard forever, and then ended up spending about $100 on ingredients, alcohol, and decorations. i found a dress i had purchased back in long island [atleast 4+ years ago now] which hadnt ever really fit, and that id tried to consign atleast once. it was a $300 sample sale dress which i think i paid $40 for. but it fit the theme perfectly, and finally fit me, but i couldnt bring myself to add any extra sparkle. subtle is better, no?
the following night my sister, our friend from new york, and my best friend from college were in town! we went to empire for super early dim sum dinner, 555 for fancy pants dessert, then shuffled my sister off to symphony rehearsal, while the 3 of us spent hours at the hunt and alpine club and maps.
