I was meeting my good friend, JB, for a birthday celebration and I found that her entire ensemble was romantic and almost, other-worldly. I marveled in her ability to take different pieces, blend them together and make something so uniquely her. Every piece was purchased separately, yet auto-magically :) became an amazing cohesive outfit.
JB said that she added the button detail herself because she felt it needed just a little something else. Luckily she was able to find her box full of vintage buttons and cleverly attached a couple of them to the edge of the under slip.
Marie Antoinette, herself, would have approved of this adorable outfit down to the ivory stocking and white, leather Mary-Jane's.
So what is missing? Jewelry, of course! Jewelry acts like the icing on a cake. One might say, "Let them eat cake!" But, I digress....JB chose to wear some very pretty cameo jewelry to be her icing on this special occasion.
Cameo's are such beautiful works of art and I am astounded by how intricate some of them are.
We dined at Sea Pearl at The Mosaic with a group of friends and celebrated with copious amounts of white wine and good cheer. The food was delicious and we all had a marvelous time. JB helped to set the fashionable tone to the birthday celebration - I can't wait to see what she comes up with next time.
