Bonus Footage: Mabel and Zora Event

Hi All!

As I mentioned in my daily outfit post from yesterday, I went to an event at a boutique called Mabel and Zora Thursday night with my hilarious and gorgeous friends, Jenny and Lori.  

This is what I wore to said event:



Although my outfit was neutral, I absolutely loved it.  I felt pretty and stylish.  But, I can’t take all the credit.  The outfit was inspired, at least in part, by this outfit that Fabienne at The House in the Clouds wore.  I loved her combination of fur vest and a dress and wanted to try something similar with my fur vest.  I paired my vintage vest (thrifted) with my grey dress (also thrifted), olive tights (Hue via Nordstrom Rack), trusty Born Crown boots (via Nordstrom), shiny striped scarf (BCBG) and lots of gold jewelry.


The thin gold bangles are from Nordstrom, and all the others were thrifted except for the brown and gold beaded bracelet which my mom made.  The angel wing earrings are from a street vendor on Alberta, the vintage chandelier crystal necklace is from Special on Alberta, and the pearl/gold necklace was thrifted.

Mabel and Zora's had champagne, a sale on all dresses and amazing boudoir photos by a company called Evoke.  Their events are always fun, an last night was no exception.  We drank champagne and tried on dresses, feather earrings and gargantuan cocktail rings.   

Jen and Lori tried on the same dress.

After Mabel and Zora's, we walked to a nearby restaurant for dinner.  On the way, we ran into this ukulele-playing street musician who was kind enough to play and sing for us.
