What I wore today: 02/15/2014 (Sparkle and Stripes)

Sparkle and stripes outfit: Anthropologie "Starlit Stripes Dress", leopard brocade coat, black pirate booties, Asos "ASOS Quilt Cross Body Bag With Rabbit Ears"

I bought this dress with an Oscars party in mind, but I didn't want to wait that long to wear it, so I pulled it out for my Valentine's weekend date with Ryan to dinner and the ballet.

By the way, if there is a snowstorm on Valentine's Day, you probably shouldn't assume you can get a table at any of the myriad restaurants in a popular neighborhood the next day. There will be a two-and-a-half hour wait at all of them and you will be reminded why you could never live in New York City. Not that this has happened to me.

Anyway, this dress is just too much: the proportions, the color, the width of the stripes; it's all too much, and that is exactly why I like it. Since the dress was already too, too much, I naturally decided to pair it with a bag that has ears.

Our Wedding Rehearsal and Rehearsal Dinner

Our Wedding Rehearsal and Rehearsal Dinner

The night before our wedding, we got together to rehearse at the barn and then have dinner at a favorite historic German restaurant in the city. It was a really exciting night because a lot of my favorite people were meeting each other for the first time. It was also a really relaxed and comfortable way to unwind a bit before our wedding and spend some extra quality time with our family.

Thanks so much to my new mother-in-law and father-in-law for hosting the dinner, and thanks to my brother-in-law Eric for taking all of these photos!
