25 Jun Orange Crochet Dress
I love crochet, when the detailing is done right, it is quality, and style, it is right up there with lace as a favorite of mine. This dress caught my eye when I saw it on line from Zara. I love their clothes, and the style along with the lace collar with such detailing is what made me purchase this one. I saved it for that special occasion, and it was such when my brother Tim, and his wife Michelle came to visit. They are from the Big Apple and last we saw each other was at my other brother’s wedding, We had an excellent time, with a party of 9! at one of my husband and my favorite haunts, Port City Club on the Lake, as we also celebrated my little 3 year old niece’s first ballet recital. I remember taking ballet lessons when I was about 7 and can still recall the blue and silver leotard and my blue tutu! I recall being on stage, and the first, second and fifth positions in ballet, but don’t ask me much else. I also do recall one of the stretches we had to do, ( and perhaps at that time, it was a sign of my hypermobility), the ability to lay on my stomach, and touch my toes to my head .I also remember the bridge, and think I can still do that one, ( although my PT doesn’t advise it).
Nonetheless, we had a great time, with great food, and great company. My bro ordered salmon with blue lump crab, husband ordered grouper with citrus sauce, and these potato wedges that were cut in 4, but I was imagining how large this potato was! As a group portobello flatbreads, seafood flatbread with shrimp, mozzerella, goat cheese, capers, and blue lump crab, was also my dinner. Ah,,, so good. The desserts were pretty crazy, as only 2 men at the table could stuff part of them down. My husband got a 6 layer chocolate cake that was about the size of his dinner plate, and my brother in law, a leche dessert, that looked delicious , as creamy as a piece of melt in your mouth cheesecake. Everyone was dressed up, and I wore my nude gladiator sandals, a pair of orange drop earrings from Charming Charlie, and carried my LV Speedy 30. Overall a great evening, hearing how my brother and his wife we doing, as well as seeing them and setting plans to visit NY in the Spring. Are you hungry yet?
Have a great day
