Date Night With Friends

Last Saturday I wore this outfit for a dinner/date night with former clients that are also good friends.  We had dinner at Rumari, my favorite Italian restaurant. It 's a little gem in Laguna Beach - definitely go there for authentic Italian if you're close by.  The third photo is really awful, but I needed to show the back of the cardigan.  I don't think there's another person on this planet who loves rose gold as much as me. 


This cardigan was seen on "Elizabeth Webber" on the 05-15-15 episode of General Hospital.  Thank you to imasoapfan for the photo.  This is definitely one of my favorite pieces seen on the show.

Wine, Cheese & Chocolate Tasting Event

Saturday night I wore this Trina Turk 'Kurdson' dress to a wine, cheese, and chocolate tasting and dinner event.  The top part of the dress was originally too roomy on me, so I got it altered.  It fits like a dream now. Nordstrom does the best alterations work.  I really don't want to go anywhere else for alterations.

Bar Mitzvah Party Outfit

My nephew became a Bar Mitzvah back in early January, and I wore this navy dress by Rebecca Taylor to the party.  It was so easy to dance and move in this swingy dress.  These kate spade rhinestone bow pumps were seen on "Maxie Jones" on General Hospital back in December 2014.  A big thank you to the amazing imasoapfan blog for the TV photos.


The photo below isn't my favorite, but it was the only one that showed my earrings.

Visit to Norton Simon Museum in Pasadena

Our family visited the Norton Simon Museum in Pasadena last weekend.  Not only was the art in the museum incredibly beautiful, but the outdoors were stunning, too.  

My favorite piece in the museum is a sculpture by Edgar Degas:  Little Dancer, Aged Fourteen, 1878-81:

New Year's Day 2016 / Son's Birthday Dinner

I wore this outfit to my son's 12th birthday dinner on New Year's Day at his favorite Chinese restaurant here in town.  I swear by these KUT From the Kloth 'Diana' corduroy skinnies which are on sale for $45.90 at Nordstrom. They are the only pants that really keep me warm in our "cold" SoCal weather.  During this photo shoot it was 44°F.  I was shivering!  I'm really loving winter white lately.  I just learned that the KUT From the Kloth site has some exclusive colors.  I hope more of my size becomes available.  This C By Bloomingdale's Dip-Dye cashmere sweater was seen on "General Hospital" recently in a different color, so I'll be making a post on that soon.
