On Saturday night husby and I attended the Wylie Weddings  1-year anniversary party with our fabulous friends Amy and Cole. Check out the Wylie Weddings Website…they’re awesome. And yes, that’s husby and I on the front page…BAM!  Totes famous, people!

The party was at Bocci Cellar in Downtown Santa Cruz…the type of dive-bar that the same 15 guys from the neighborhood hang out at EVERY DAY for the entire year….needless to say, I felt slightly out of place when we walked in and all 15 said-men in plaid shirts got suddenly silent and stared at us as we walked to the back patio. The back patio was AWESOME.  It was covered and heated (thank the Lord), and has two bocce courts to play on for free all the time. Bocce Ball? Yes please. I LOVE bocce…or anything else competitive for that matter.

Thank you Katie for a very FUN evening!

I love the details on this dress, the fabric is so beautiful, and oddly enough, totally sturdy. I know that’s a weird way to describe lace, but that’s how it feels – sturdy.

In other news, I don’t know how to dress for winter. I think it stems from my allergy to wool (like, I’m actually break-out-in-hives-allergic, not like, “oh, I don’t like it cause it’s itchy”-allergic). Everything beautiful and cozy and warm and lovely is wool in wintertime…. And so I’m still trying to figure out how to wear things I love, and stay current, without being a giant walking ball of hives all the time.

I’ll let you know if I come up with a plan.

P.S. – You can get a sneak peek of my new light fixture in the background of the first photo…It is AWESOME. Get excited people, get REALLY excited.
