Huzzah, it's Friday!

Just a really quick post. Today was truly a fantastic day: I was really productive and got lots of pages written for my thesis, I got to catch up with a really good friend of mine whom I've missed so much, and I got to have a marvelous dinner with some awesome people. Tonight called for a celebration, so I put on my party face and my Little House of the Prairie dress. I call it that because it just looks so... pastoral. It makes me feel like Henry VI sitting atop a hill looking at the shepherds below tending their sheep, musing about the sweet and simple pleasures of life. (Henry VI III)

This is probably one of my favorite dresses. I can wear it in any weather and pair it with a million things. It's also really really comfy and flatters me, I think. However, there's another reason I wore this dress... I knew we'd be eating at a Chinese restaurant known for their authentic dishes and large portions. The skirt is wide, but not too baggy, and hides every morsel of sin. I ate so much that when I got home I was sure I gained at least 2 lbs.

This was my favorite dish of the 10 dishes (seriously, we got that much. There were 6 of us, and some of the dishes were appetizers). It's Crispy fried tofu with some kind of sweet, tangy sauce. I honestly gobbled at least three of these large chunks of soy goodness along with all the other delicious viands that I had no time to take photos of because my hands were too busy shoveling food in my mouth.

Hope you all have a great weekend!

  1. I LOVE that dress! I saw it at Charlotte Russe too, but they didn't have my size and I was so bummed. I like how you styled it with the black tights. And your nail polish is gorgeous!

  10. Hey, to answer your question Metro Chic isn't matte and is pretty different from Particuliere, it has more of a plummy tone to it. Particuliere and Mink Muffs are pretty similar, though.

  12. YUM Crispy Fried Tofu is always a winner in my book! Also, your dress does not look LHOTP - if it were like Laura Ingall's dress it would be much longer. ;)

  17. I do like fried tofu... never had it with sweet tangy sauce before. Potential yum! And I love the picture with the meowing necklace, too. I mean. Meowing necklace, come on.

    And the plum wine was delicious, I may have snuck in a bit more after taking that picture, haha. :D
