Sunday Matinee Style

I'm lucky enough to have parents that a) enjoy my company b) will drive down from Santa Barbara to do so c) take me to awesome things like plays and concerts.

On this sunny Sunday we first enjoyed a delicious lunch on the patio at Napa Valley Grille in Westwood. Completely amazing. I indulged in elderflower cucumber sangria, had a roasted veggie salad and a vegetable eggs benedict, as well as a small piece of coffee cake. All delicious and light.

After lunch, we saw the matinee showing of the west coast premiere of "Good People" by David Lindsay-Abaire at the Geffen Playhouse. Truly one of the most fantastic and well-acted productions I've had the pleasure of seeing in the last few years. Starring Jane Kaczmarek and Jon Tenney, amongst others, it was both completely hilarious, totally offensive, and a little bit heart-breaking. If you ever have the chance, go see!

So, any excuse I have to get fancy, I will take. And I don't often have excuses. Thus today I decided to wear the new dress I bought yesterday, as it felt appropriately springy, and tried to play up the fun mix of colors in the print.

  • Dress by Old Navy (I thought it was a medium, per the hanger it was on. Didn't find out until I'd tried it on, bought it and taken it home that it's actually a small. WTF?!)
  • Lace Cardigan by Miss Chievous (I am wearing the shit out of this thing. $15 well spent.)
  • Peep-Toe Wedges by Aerosoles (So darn comfy, my feet thank me profusely.)
  • Earrings from ModCloth (YELLOW!)
  • Sash by What Now? (Pretty sure I got it at a vintage shop or garage sale or something. It looked kind of weird, but I dug it.)
  • Gold cuff by H&M (Funny, I was wearing this when I got mugged in Paris last summer. When I fell flat on my face, I landed on my forearm and it got all misshappen and popped off. It fits weird now. True story.)
  • Ring by Someone Talented (Bought at a street fair in Seattle in 2008.)
  • Purse by Kathy Von Zeeland (I like to carry a lot of crap.)
