Happy Accident


Last week began Restaurant Week in San Diego, which marks the rare occasion when this homebody is actually excited to go out on a Wednesday night. Gotta love discounted menus at my favorite restaurants…whoohoo!  I wore this for an evening at our tried and true local steak house, and then a variation of this the next evening for another dinner with friends.

The pièce de résistance of my week’s wardrobe was this velvet tuxedo blazer, which I came to own by happy accident. This blazer was given to me by a friend (happy!), which was rendered useless to her after her tailor altered it down too much (accident!).

One girl’s tailoring disaster is another girl’s wardrobe workhorse…or something like that.


Details – Zara blazer :: American Apparel t-shirt :: Koral Los Angeles jeans :: Banana Republic belt :: Kate Spade shoes :: Valentino handbag (smooth leather version) :: J.Crew necklace :: Michael Kors watch :: Vince Camuto bracelet

Altered – Zara blazer has been taken in

    Mmmmm I love that bag! And I am totally wanting so much velvet right now. I just moved from SD to Dubai just in time to miss all my family’s restaurant week dinners!
