It’s My Party and I’ll Shine If I Want To



Well, it wasn’t actually a party, it was dinner, but it was my dinner and my dress was shiny:


I wore this outfit for Day 2 of my Birthday Extravaganza.  We were going to dinner at The Chart House, which is a lovely restaurant in the hills above Portland, and I figured why not wear sequins.  So I did:


Although I love my black, sequined dress (vintage via Goodwill), I wanted to inject a little color into my outfit as well, so I added blue tights (Hue via Marshalls) and a burgundy eelskin clutch (vintage via Goodwill).  I also added a few bracelets, the same Juicy Couture necklace (via Nordstrom) I wore the night before (I know, I know, worst blogger ever) and black Mary Jane pumps (Franco Sarto Leticia via Nordstrom).

Dinner was fabulous.  The view was amazing and so were the food and the service.  Definitely an excellent Day 2.

Happy Thursday, All!

  2. love love this vintage dress! Sequin dresses are always a good thing to have in your closet. I have this uber sparkly sexy gold dress and of course the first time I wore it was with a huge old lady xmas holiday sweater for an ugly sweater party! I think my dress was embarrassed to be taken out that night but you do the sequin justice hot lady! Take pictures of dinner!

  4. You look so beautiful! I love the pops of color you added to this dressy look. I can't believe you found this dress at Goodwill, it's stunning. I've been looking for something similar for New Years!

  6. Your hair looks so pretty Gracey! I love that you put blue tights with this dress. I probably would have done something neutral and then wish I'd added a dash of color. I love blue at Christmas time especially!

  23. love the blue tights...it's just enough color to pop, but not overpower the pretty sequined dress!

    we have a chart house here...but it's not a lovely restaurant on the hills tho! more like an old pub on the harbor!
