19 Crimes

IMG_5599

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 Β 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! πŸ™‚

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.

Dress: Loft ( old, similar), Belt: Lipp Boutique, Boots: Born ( Ebay), Handbag: Rebecca MInkoff, Gloves, Target, jewelry: 1928,

    Taupe is one of my favorite neutral and this whole look is beautiful Jess! I love the texture that the tights add and the color of that coat is perfect on you. And yes, I agree on the white socks w/ sandals!

    Gorgeous look and I love the photos, Jess, outside with the wind too!
    That wine sounds very tasty. I always loved red wine but stopped it quite a while ago as I don’t have a good night sleep afterwards (that also happens with very good wine!). When I occasionally have a glass, I now go for a light white wine. Sad but I feel much better.

    Have a great weekend,

      Thank you much Annette! The wind was really blowing that day!! The wine is so good, we are looking to get a case for the holidays and beyond. Sorry to hear you don’t sleep well but can still have a glass of tasty white. It is the opposite for me, I get sleepy with a good glass of wine πŸ™‚ Enjoy your weekend, too, jess xx

    Jess, I have 19 compliments about this look, but not enough time to say them. I agree about acid washed jeans, and painted on denim…
    you, however,are flawless in this knit dress, and gorgeous vivid coat.
    I love every detail.
    I cant drink any wine… πŸ™ because I am on methrotrexate, bummer! I know you will understand.
    But all is ell, and I am wishing you a super weekend!

    Hi Jess! Finally making my way back to all my favorite sites, and to posting again (please drop by ;)).

    Love the way your post is photographed! Has a bit of a retro feel to it, a perhaps it’s the wine bottle πŸ™‚ though your look isn’t retro at all, it’s fabulous! Love the sweater dress and boots, and your bright coat adds such a pretty pop of color!

    Have a wonderful weekend!
