What I Wore: Lady In Lace

 DivineMrsDiva.com - Kiyonna Lady In Lace Peplum Dress, Groopdealz Flora Jeweled Statement Necklace

This year we decided to veer from our usual Valentine's dinner - homemade fondue fun at home - for the delectable delights that would await us at one of our favorite restaurants.  Naturally, this made me want to get all gussied up for a romantic dinner out.  Kiyonna to the rescue with this classy number - the Lady In Lace Peplum Dress.

I was really excited to try this dress because I don't own a dress like it.  It is more fitted than I normally go for, but I was ready to take the risk.  I am so glad I did because I absolutely love this dress!  It fits fantastically and is such a ladylike and flattering silhouette.  I also love how easy it is to wear because it is made of a ponte knit fabric that moves with ease.  The lace peplum and bodice are made of a stretchy lace that moves great as well.  It made me feel so classy and pretty and confident.  So confident that I am uncharacteristically showing my upper arms without a second thought.

I received a lot of compliments on my whole ensemble, including my sparkly necklace.  I bought it in the purple and mint, but I recently picked it up in coral too because I love it so much.  It was a gorgeous night out, so after our amazing meal (roasted red pepper soup and bacon wrapped scallops with celery puree and a caper lemon sauce to start, entrees of horseradish crusted salmon with creme fraiche cucumbers, and dessert that included an espresso creme brulee with almond macaroon and a sticky toffee pudding with vanilla ice cream.  O.M.G y'all!  It was SO GOOD.) we went for a walk around the grounds of the hotel/restaurant/winery/golf course.

Once we arrived home, we opened our gifts to each other and hung out with our Fuzzy Valentines.  We definitely had a laugh when we realized that we both got each other Lord of the Rings themed Valentine cards.  Great minds!  I made Sean a "Love Tickets" book that includes "coupons" for things like breakfast in bed, a back massage, and a Star Trek Movie Marathon, etc.  He gave me a lovely ceiling light for my dressing room.  I can't wait to see how much it sparkles!
