A "Lost" Elegant Look.

You girls know very well by now that I love dresses and I own A TON of them. I guess the 5 brands that mostly make up my dress wardrobe would be: The Limited, Express, bebe, White House Black Market & Ann Taylor LOFT. I usually wear a dress at least once a week, despite what season it is. At summer time I probably wear them as often as 3 times a week, though I try to leave certain days to skirts and capri pants or casual/non-work days to shorts, minis and rompers. I am glad to 'find' in my archive of never-before blogged photos, this outfit because I quite seem to like it.

You also know well - as I have mentioned it a few times - that I am really behind with posting outfits, especially since some days call for an outfit change when I am not at work. This (me being very behind) was due to certain computer problems that started as early as Mid February and continued through April and then happened again in Mid May. That is why for the past two weeks or so I have been posting twice daily, till I catch up. Anyway, this is a beautiful outfit I wore on a Special Bar Night with Special Friends. It was an Unforgettable Party. Unfortunately the other photos of the night are snapped with other people in them (pics of my friends and I). These are the only two I took by myself but I still think you can see the main details of the outfit correctly.

This dress was purchased for such a special kind of party and I even purchased the belt with it. ;-) I love how this is a two-tier dress made up of what looks like a black pencil skirt and a silk brown/gold printed, cap-sleeve blouse tucked in it. The OBI belts from the Limited are great, too. This is my 4th OBI belt from them. This is a soft, buttery leather, quilted-style, gold one. I really should own stock at The Limited or at least get some free stuff from them since I own a ton of their clothes, really. Plus I advertise them quite well to the blogging community and that should count for something. =P And last but not least I love Nine West Shoes. Peep-Toes style is one of my most favorite styles of shoes: classic, chic, modern, feminine. I own at least 5-6 pairs of Peep-Toe Pumps from Nine West.

I love date nights. We try to have at least one of those special date nights, once a week, usually on weekends. Sometimes (like this day) we double date with another couple (friends of ours), but usually it's just my husband and I. This was a day that started quite hot and it was April 29th. The weather hit about 25 Celsius Degrees. That's quite hot for just being Late April. This however was a later, evening date and since it gets a little chilly in the evenings I opted for long sleeves in the form of a simple, light tunic sweater. This sweater is so pretty and the neckline is beautiful front to back. I wish I would have captured a photo from behind as well. There is always next time.

I am also posting some of my favorite photos from the night. Three of them are with my lovely husband and one with my girlfriend (our significant others are great work friends, us girls have become good friends too, through them). The two of them are some years younger than my husband and I, but we still get along great and always find similar things and hobbies to talk about. They are engaged and will hopefully have a wedding some time next year. This was a beautiful, special evening and quite relaxing for me, because this was also the day we moved, the actual day when we entered our new home and got everything in there. It was a long and tiresome day to say the least but this date made it all perfect, at the end. =)

I love these darling photos of my husband and I. We both sort of match. Yes he is in Stripes but his sweater has red stripes and our bottoms are both Khaki.
And here is a photo of us two girls. I love her simple, casual yet chic Black+White Look. And I adore her Beautiful, Curly Hair. =))
