28 Feb Emerald Evening and Vino
Last night was a night where we tried a new wine bar, and I was finally able to wear my Magaschoni cashmere emerald sweater out! I purchased it last year at Bluefly, a favorite on-line shop, as the green emerald was calling out to me.( I am starting to notice a favorite phrase!) I was told, by many people I encounter that all red heads should own green in their closet. I do think it compliments the hair and skin tone, but not every shade of green works. More brown-greens for instance, I feel, look ruddy. I am not a neon girl, even when the fashion fad was in, nor do I find chartruese, a lime-green to be very skin tone friendly. So, while I agree that red heads may want to consider green in their wardrobe, make sure you know what suits you and your complexion. I paired it with an inexpensive scroll pencil skirt I found at Target, boots that are comfy, and my leather jacket with a wide lapel I got for a steal two years ago. My handbag is a favorite, from Rebecca Minkoff, as it is showing some wear, but I love the quilting as I find it classic, as did Chanel, but this at a lower price point. Maybe one day… My hair is also very curly and full in these pics, had them in the hot rollers longer.
We went to a new French wine bar, which was lovely. I am always checking out the seating, as with EDS, I need padding and comfort, so we ease back and make ourselves at home, in one of their leather black couches, sipping a new french wine that was very fruity, dry and delicious, paired with some gouda and brie, crackers, and pretzels, it was a treat. The wallpaper looks like scroll work from what I imagine a french bordello would look like, but since I have no experience with french interior design,or bordellos, I can not say for sure. It certainly fit the character of the place.
