look book: lace love {and a double date}

May 14, 2010


The other week we had a double date with my best friend Lizzie and her boyfriend. They had come up from San Diego to go to Six Flags so we had to get together. We went to Trader Vics since it was right next to their hotel, listened to a band that won 8 Hawaiian Grammy's {didn't even know those existed!} and caught up.



I wore this lace top that believe it or not was my mom's! It's fun when we can sometimes share clothes. Shoes are a totally different issue though since she has little fairy feet.



sigh that boyfriend of mine is pretty cute {and stylish}!

lace top my mom's, skirt Blaque Market via Ideeli, blazer Yank, black/gold heels Betsey Johnson

This week I definitely won the Least Blogged Award of all time for M Loves M. I am still sick but hopefully on the upswing. And I've been very preoccupied with some exciting news I'll share with you all on Monday!

I hope everyone had a great week and has a wonderful weekend!
