Words cannot express the wonderful evening my Husband and I had Sunday, nor can they express the glory of this faboo dress ;) ~ Yes, I can be shallow, but if you only knew how long I've waited for a special occasion to wear it. I thrifted this Nieves Lavi silk jersey dress this summer for 4 dollars ( Who throws this stuff out ??? ) and have been petting it, lovingly eyeing it, and almost sleeping with it for 6 months ;) I knew it was "high-end" the minute I spied it and after looking it up, I am flabbergasted that someone actually gave it away. I can't find the pattern description , nor what year it was produced, but as far as I can tell, it may be the " Nirvana" print. Any clues ? Ahhh..... silk jersey........ my new favorite ~
The dress wraps around my waist 3 times, plus a super-long tie in the back and luckily has a hidden zipper for quick escape.
I am not a "label" person and actually thought it was a poly-blend from possibly the 70's .............
OK, the evening was wonderful as well, with lobster tails and shrimp, cheesecake and kisses ...............
I have been asked to tell our love story, but will save it for tomorrow .
( I had a shoe issue, black or brown boots ~ heels or not ~ but I let Hubs decide what he liked :)
Plus, I slutted it up with my over-the-knee socks, which I love ......
I wore 2 charm bracelets and simple coppertone dangles as not to distract from the dress.
12 years and counting :)
Babies we were !
