Lily Pad Novelty Print

Yesterday, my dear friend Faith & I took a little trip to her work, Le Pichet.

Love, love, love this place. 

Phenomenal French food, no Americanized nonsense. Mmmmmmm.

Plus: There's this....

Ahem, anyways...

To state the obvious: I love this dress.
Novelty print lily pads, my favorite '40s neckline, and a giant bow. 

Gives me goosebumps!!

Giant green apple bakelite earrings!

I've been having a long term love affair with this silk velvet '30s coat.
I've mended it a hilarious number of times, and it is literally turning to dust. But I will love it until the bitter end. Luckily, this coyote collar covers a large hole, but that will be our little secret.

After Le Piche, I met some friends up at a vegan bar.... 
Just in the nick of time, I remembered to hide the fur.

Here's Laurel & Jaynie, aren't they pretty? Love these girls!
