LOOK OF THE DAY: FRIEND'S 40TH BIRTHDAY CELEBRATION AT ROCKWELL


Happy Monday, my Fashionable Friends!

First off, thank you so much for the sweet comments and messages I received yesterday about 9-11...they each mean more than you know!

On a happier note, as promised, I had the chance to attend my lovely friend Ginette's "Oh Lordy, I'm 40" birthday celebration at Rockwell in Hollywood on Saturday, which is a super trendy and oh so fun restaurant, bar and lounge.

It was a truly wonderful night with some great people, and I am so glad I was able to be there for such a milestone in her life...and boy, did she look as fabulous as ever!!! Forty seriously is the new thirty! :)

Here is the Look of the Day that I sported that night along with some pictures from our celebration over some divine deserts including s'mores and chocolate raspberry cupcakes and the most decadent dark chocolate bakery cake with salted carmel icing that our friend Kimberly had made for her!

She had a private area for just her party, which was very nice, and it was outside on the upstairs patio area surrounded by lovely trees and candlelight glow! I really had a wonderful time and ended up staying until 1AM meeting new people, chatting with old friends and just enjoying the night!

I put together my outfit from various items in my closet, some I've had for years, and other that were new, like my skirt from Forever 21, but the entire look is just over $90, which is the best part!

Oh and I curled my hair for the night, but for those of you who have stick straight hair, like I do, you will understand how annoying it can be to see it stick straight again just hours later! Oh me, oh my! LOL!

  11. You are so darn cute!! I love this outfit! Have you ever tried moroccan oil on your hair? I buy the $6 bottle at Walmart. I use on the ends to help tame my frizzes, but I have a friend who swears it keeps the curl in her hair!
