Much Acclaim

Beefy and I attended the Acclaim Awards last night. The program recognizes theater in the Greater Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky area. We attended to cheer on the winners of the 2010 Trailblazer award, but I found that I knew many of the attendees and awardees.


Dress, vintage. Jacket, Adrianna Papell. Tights, Apostrophe. Shoes, BCBGeneration. Necklace, vintage and thrifted.

This is probably my favorite cocktail dress. It was a gift from one of the theater groups I work with. It is from the early 80’s, but designed like a dress of a much older vintage. I’ve worn it twice before, to weddings:


Sorry about the coat in the first picture – that wedding was COLD!

I LOVE this dress...It's wonderful!

I have been reading your blog for about 6 months now and haven't commented before, but I just have to say thank you. I have recently begun redoing my wardrobe (and by that I mean, buying cohesive, useful, pieces) and the whole time I have been thinking back to your blog. It has been a real inspiration and has really helped me to look at clothes and getting dressed differently! Thank you, you are an inspiration!

You look so pretty and confident. Although I liked the blonde, I just wanted to say you look fabulous in the red as well.
