A very good friend and co-worker of mine is heading to medical school this fall in Vermont (Brrrr!!!) so her sisters held a “Medical School Shower” for her over the weekend. In honor of her imminent New England naturalization, I wanted to wear something a little…um…east coasty.
When I think New England, I think preppy (Cape Cod! Nantucket! Yachts!). My favorite preppy item is my LOFT striped button down which I got tailored to fit, so that part was easy. Then my eyes fell on my newly un-earthed from the bottom of a drawer Theory sweater vest, and a match was made! Why hello there outfit…where have you been all my life?
Tip: I love when items look tiny and cropped on models. It gives me a clue that the item might fit me normally. In this case, it worked! Check out how the Theory sweater vest I’m wearing fits on the model (here). Sweaters can also be shrunk to fit petites better. See shrinking advice (here).
I threw on my favorite pearls (I just can’t not wear them) and my rubies (my birthstone!). Just to make sure I looked extra
ridiculous stylish, I added some tweed Manolo Blahniks to finish off the look. Oh yeah, and my red Rebecca Minkoff Mini Mini (red Chanel would have made an appearance, but the shower was at a bar, and spilled beer + Chanel does not mix).
I liked this outfit so much, I ended up wearing it again to go see the musical Avenue Q at the San Diego Civic Theater. This show is amazingly funny and I highly recommend it to anyone with a sense of humor. The musical is basically Sesame Street for adults, so get ready for a raunchy good time…with puppets!
After the show…at the beach house!
Almost fell over ’cause my heel sank in the dirt:
Teehee…you can see me, but you can’t. =)
