Think Fancy Thoughts

This weekend, I celebrated my dear friend Courtney's birthday at this delightfully sophisticated restaurant/club/bar. Since I am but a poor college student, it's a place much more upscale than I'm used to (even the bathrooms looked rich!), so the motto of the evening was think fancy thoughts. And I think it worked. 

Here's some snapshots from the evening:


The menus were so fancy they had French words in them like crème fraiche. Mhmm. And my lemonade came in this sexy little glass:


Courtney loved her Christmas/Birthday present so much. It's a good feeling when somebody adores what you pick out for them.

Here are some better shots of what I wore:



One of my friends loved this sweater and asked where I had gotten it. When I told her it was from Goodwill, she said in frustration, "Of course it is." Hahah. I enjoyed that exchange. This outfit earned me lots of compliments, which proves that you can look rich and fancy without spending like a rich person. 





Do you have any special celebrations planned for the holidays?


What I'm Wearing:

Necklace//Antique
Sweater//Vintage, Thrifted
Blouse (yep, it's inside out)//Maurices
Belt//???
Rings//Antique
Shoes//Target

  5. oh yes I definitely agree with what you say. You don't have to be rich to look this good. Your cardi is fabulous. I like the vintage feel of this look, from the maxi skirt to the cardi, simple but so classy.

I do my best to respond to all comments, but I'm pretty scatterbrained. So if I skip over you, it's most surely unintentional.
Thank you for your sweet words!
