21 Nov 19 Crimes
HI Ladies, TGIF!
I bet with this title you think I was referring to 19 Crimes of Fashion! Perhaps I am, maybe I am not? What would those be anyhow? I can think of a couple off hand. Stirrup pants in the 80s. White socks and sandals on Men.
Painted on Jeans. Exaggerated Parachute pants. Acid Wash Jeans. However, maybe I am speaking of something else?…
I am actually referring to “19 Crimes” an AMAZING WINE I had tried that refers to the 19 Crimes in the 1800s which you can read about here. It was the BEST tasting wine, I have had in awhile. A red blend of Granache, Shiraz, and Cab, it was so velvety smooth, dry, with a deep fruit taste, easily drinkable on its own or for one of those Holiday Dinners.I was taken to it right away as I love old real crime stories as well as cold cases, BBC Mysteries, crimes and forensics here, just love a good show about Murder! 🙂
My hubby and I went to one of our favorite tapas restaurants, called Bacchus, in Mooresville, NC. The owner is wonderful, and knowing I have a GI illness as well as EDS, he offered to make me what I wanted and needed only to call ahead. What service! I am able to eat their sweet potato gnocchi and it is AMAZING! So, if you are in the area, I suggest visiting Bacchus. The wine is something that we will certainly aim to buy for the Holidays.
I am pretty sure what I am wearing is NOT a “Crime of Fashion” but we did take some pictures outside. It is uncharacteristically cold and windy here today, going to be 18 degrees tonight!! Needless to say, my hair was just a BIT windblown, but I thought at times I was going to be lifted off the ground! We took some outside, but since I am a cold weather wimp, we took shots inside the lovely restaurant, as well.
I decided to wear a taupe dress with cowl neck, a rust colored belt for added richness, brown Born boots, cognac gloves and handbag. I have a vintage brooch and necklace on to accessorize.
