Two Outfits -She & Him

Sundays are for sleeping in, but this morning the birds outside in our backyard woke me up at the crack of dawn. *Sigh* I love you nature, but please keep it down. We had a busy night last night.

She & Him were amazing! Really, they are a great live show. The music is just a lot of fun - a lot of cute - and just a good time all around. If you've only ever heard them recorded- get yourself to one of their live gigs!

Mario and I had a proper date night last night as well. Unlike our usual date nights which involve take-out, a dvd, and me in my jammie pants. Ah, the comfortable married life... Don't get me wrong I love hanging out a home too, but sometimes it's nice to go all out!

And we did! We went to dinner at Burma Superstar, then pre-show we got a drink at the Fox theater bar ( the Den). Fancy pants!

No, I did not take this picture, it's from the Fox theater site. I was weary of bringing my camera along, since most venues do checks and won't let you take pictures anyway. Or so I thought- I saw plenty of people whipping out cameras/phones and filming the show. I got a few camera phone shots, but being a goody two shoes and not wanting to get in trouble, I put it away when the music began, so I am sorry, no illegal show footage to show you.

Yes, we were sitting far away- these were the best seats left, and we bought tickets a month in advance!

Here is what I wore yesterday to run errands, hang out, enjoy the warm weather etc....

(Little Dear Creatures Sailor Stripe Dress, vintage oxfords)

Here is what I wore to dinner and the show!

(AA dress, Levis jacket, Rachel Comey belt, Charlotte Ronson shoes)

When we got there I felt like the most dressed up one in the room.

Anyway, I've got to get out more on Saturday nights!

This morning I realized that I received a 'Questions Tag' - from Chic on the Cheap.
So here I am answering q's over a cup of coffee - and then off to start the day. Hope you all have fun stuff planned for the rest of your weekend!

1.What shoe size are you?
Teeny 5 to 5.5. I heard that your foot grows as you age, and I really hope that's true. I would love to be at least a size 6.

2.Where do you work?
In an office - I do have my own office - It has one window that overlooks an alley, and I get lots of pigeon noise during the day.

3.Favorite piece of clothing you own
Oh gosh, hmm I think it would be the dress my Dad bought me for senior prom, a from-the-runway Jill Stuart dress. It's a lovely shade of lavender, and I still wear it to fancy things like weddings.

4.Your favorite blog?
I cannot pick just one- seriously

5.Do you have any pets?
Yes, and I want more!

6.How many siblings do you have?
One awesome sister!

7.If you could live anywhere where would it be?
Paris, Stockholm, Tokyo - I can't pick one. Though at this point my Japanese is probably better than my Swedish language skills.

8.What were you doing before this?

9.Your favorite food?

10.Do you have a middle name?

11.Your favorite websites?
Too many to list here, but I love Notcot.org for it's cool design pages.

12.Who do you tag?



  1. ohhh my goodness! You just described our date nights spot on! You are right....marriage is so comfortable! My husband and I were jsut talking about how we need to actually go out to dinner tonight instead of take out! haha.

    You outfit for the she and him show was so cute!

  2. Leproust Vintage- too funny! Yes, it is good to get out once in a while ; )
    Though I do like our nights in too : )

    I also realized that out dinner with friends have turned into brunches with friends... I guess we all have early bed times?

  3. Oh- i'd love to go and see she & him! xx


  4. Ohh that restaurant/lounge/bar looks so awesome, and it's always great to have a break from the couch (as wonderful as it can be) from time to time.

    Those camera rules at concerts are silly. The last time I went to one, I actually snuck mine into my makeup bag, and at the bag check they asked me to open the makeup bag, which I of course did, then they looked right at the camera, and didn't say a word.

    Your three places you want to live are three places I haven't been to, and soooo need to get to!

  6. Ack! I just saw my tag. I think I'll do this one :) So....I just figured out I am going to She&Him this Saturday! Sweet. Now what to wear?
