Birthday Dinner

From the moment I put this dress on, I felt as if it had been designed with me in mind. The detailing along the seam is brilliant.

On my Birthday, last Friday, I was lucky enough to receive an invitation to a Fashion Show featuring Raleigh's local designing talent. 25 designers showcased their unique collections fused with original music from various North Carolina bands. I got to peek backstage which was also really cool. I have plenty of photographs to sift through, so be on the lookout for that really soon.

Later that evening, Alejandro and I enjoyed a lovely meal at Brio Tuscan Grille. I ordered the Sweet Potato & Chicken Risotto while he opted for the Penne Mediterranean- chock full of mushrooms, caramelized onions, feta, pine nuts and sundried tomatoes.

I already know that this scarf will find a lot of use come Fall and Winter. Both the color scheme and design have infinite mixing and matching possibilities.
