Special Occasion - Dinner & Drinks

Friday night was dinner out with some of L's coworkers, out from back East. Of course, we took them to our favourite steakhouse - which is a fine dining establishment. This means a fancy outfit! Woo hoo!

Naturally, I'm not going to be dressed down for this occasion - break out the strapless party dress and the rocker chick accessories! Yeah, I know I wore the boots & belt already this week, but only my co-workers saw them.

I bought this purple taffeta dress from Jacob last Christmas (I wore it for our Festivus party) and have not worn it since. Inspired again by Kasmira's daring, I put it together with harder-edged accessories to make it still appropriate for fine dining, but very much unexpected. And this is always my goal: blowing people's expectations.

A close-up of the bag (from last Christmas as well), and the cross necklace, last seen at Alice Cooper: And a shot of my silver snake ring and my ear cuff, both of which are well over 20 years old.
I got the ring when I was a volunteer in the local museum gift shop - it was all of $35 - a lot of money for me when I was 18 years old! The ear cuff is a remnant from my metal days, haha.

Special Note: This is the last picture of me with these glasses.

  1. I hope the meal was as good as the dress - I love it.
    You look fab. What's happening with the glasses?

  2. Love your outfit! The dress looks great on you. Are you getting new glasses or contacts?
