This outfit was worn for dinner at Againn, where B and I have been wanting to go for ages now. We were not at all disappointed. The oysters were incredible, as were the chorizo-stuffed chicken and the fish and chips. Oh and I'd definitely recommend trying the chocolate trifle for dessert. Total comfort food.

I'm so thrilled to have finally found a pair of cat eye sunglasses that fits my face! Having a child-sized head has its drawbacks...

Marc by Marc Jacobs sunglasses
Ann Taylor choker
blouse c/o Romwe
skirt c/o Romwe
Rag Doll bandeau
thrifted and Madewell bracelets (here and here
Lee Angel cuff 
Coach "Classic" bag (i.e. one I've had squirreled away in my closet for years - here are updated versions in brown and red)
Givenchy lace pumps

PS Did I mention B and I will be traveling to San Francisco and Napa in just a couple weeks? I could not be more excited! I've only been to the Bay area once for work and I hardly had time to see anything. Where should we go? What should we do? More importantly, what should we eat?!

that top is soooo good, I love the whole outfit but I'm probably gonna dream of that top ;)

Oh and in SF, consider going to Fang (near Union Square) for unique Chinese cuisine with modern twists;
and maybe Buco on Haight for their awesome plantain burrito + Argentine horchata :)

You always look so elegant. I wish I was tall and graceful like you.

That top is amazing! I'm gonna show it to my fiance when he comes home, he studies Astrophysics so I think he'd get a kick out of it.

I've been lusting after those sunglasses for SO LONG. I'm not sure what's been holding me back, but after seeing this post, I might have to take the plunge.

Mary said...

that blouse is so cool! i love the fashion theme lately to have outer-space prints on clothing. there's something kinda nerdy and fun about it. i really love your collection of bracelets as well.

i love romwe's nebula pieces!
you'll love visiting the bay area. i hear ad hoc in napa is a great restaurant. and you MUST go to tartine in the city - i'm vegan so i've never been, but everyone raves about it. take the alcatraz tour. i've done it twice :) hayes valley has good wine and shopping. and the mission (around the 20s at valencia) is a super adorable area to explore and shop.
let me know if you have questions. i live in sf :) @jenniegoingwest

Super cute. I love the top paired with that skirt.

M & Em said...

I'm gonna be up front about this: I am going to steal your whole outfit. The shirt is just... Wow! I am sure you got dozens of compliments on it. And the skirt is adorable and compliments the top perfectly. Your bag has a precious vintage sort of look to it. And that necklace is seriously stunning. And can I steal your face while I'm at it? You're so freakin' gorgeous.
