LOOK OF THE DAY: EVENING ON THE WESTSIDE


Happy Friday, Everyone!!!

First off, I am so excited because I just reached 300 Fabulous Followers and I want to thank each and every one of you!!! :)

I seriously cannot believe that not too long ago, when I decided to start a blog, I had zero followers, and sat there wondering if I would even have one who might be interested in what I had to say or post, and now I have 300 of whom I only know 3 personally!

Now, with that happiness expressed, back on task I go...hehe!

Recently, I headed to the westside of LA to go to The Wellesbourne, a new, very cool, sophisticated, British looking lounge and bar.

There we celebrated my lovely friend Miss Jenny's birthday over some cocktails and I enjoyed my first genuine Kir Royale, a glass of champagne mixed with a splash of raspberry crème de cassis, by a grand and oh so lovely fire in the fireplace and it was delish!

However, I have come to realize that since getting engaged, and wearing my beloved ring on a daily basis, that it does NOT seem to keep guys in LA away, but has quote the opposite affect and attracts them...so crazy, and oh so wrong.

Anwho, I thought I would do another Look of the Day and show you what a wore for the evening!

Closer look at the blazer, sequin top and skirt.

Closer look at my silver bangles.

Closer look at my little black clutch.

Closer look at my black pumps paired with some black tights.

Sassy moi! :)

Having fun and a look at my make-up.

My classy Kir Royale cocktail served in a beautiful crystal champagne glass with a lovely garnish!

The evening was a true success and lots of fun! So, if you ever find yourself in the LA area closer to the westside near Santa Monica, I HIGHLY recommend this gem of a lounge hidden away in an area where you would not expect it.

The Wellesbourne is new and I think it is going to take word of mouth to allow all of its glory to shine and be seen by others. So, I already told my parents who are in town about it and they enjoyed their Valentine's Day together there where they had a truly lovely time!

Do any of you know of any lovely little places in and around the LA area that you would like to share? I simply love discovering new places! :)

Thank you again to all of my dedicated and supportive followers, and until next time, I hope you all have a Wonderful Weekend ahead!!!

  3. You are so beautiful! Love this outfit. Your blazer is amazing, I think blazers should be a staple in every wardrobe! I think you introduced the site Go Jane on your blog a few weeks back. I ordered some adorable tops...one for $5! I am still waiting for them in the mail but I can't wait! That Champagne drink sounds amazing! Mmmmmm! Hope you have a fabulous weekend! x

  4. Oooh! You look so pretty! And that is so wrong about rings attracting guys! But yes, I've found that even my 2 carat rock of a ring isn't always noticed by the creeps :/
    Have a fab weekend! Oh, and as for a gem of a place in LA., well it's actually in Costa Mesa, but it's called Darya's and it is the most delectable persian and iranian food! So me and my armenian family eat there for every family gathering (even though i live in oregon...)

  8. I adore that sequin top! You look so sassy! I will drink anything with champagne in it! I love champagne. One of my favorites was made in the village we lived in Germany. A man made it and only sold it during Carnival time called Fasching. It is scrumptious! Have a wonderful weekend!!

  9. Great outfit!!! YAY AND CONGRATULATIONS ON THE ENGAGEMENT!!!! YIPEEE!!!!! :)

    I notice that men don't seem to care if you have a ring on but you know what does...walking round with toddler, or pushing a stroller with a BABY (shock horror!) in it!!
    I remember when i first had my daughter, i used to feel relaly invisible because no guys were interested in me anymore, and then one day i was able to get out by myself and that all changed (i was a single mother at the time, so it mattered to me if men still looked!).
