Well, when I moved back to Florida, I just knew sooner or later a flamingo would come into the picture...maybe on the front of our Christmas cards, as the centerpiece for one of my tablescapes, on the coffee table on the front porch, et cetera. I sure never thought I would join a book club named "The Flamingo Ladies Book Club!" Well, tonight I attended my first "Flamingo Ladies Book Club...and Social Hour!"
I was actually very excited that the first meeting would be at the home of my neighbor Stacey Gilfillan. Stacey and her husband live in the same model of home we do and the home we actually wanted to buy, but we couldn't do the transaction quick enough. So, I was looking forward to seeing the inside of Stacey's house. Y'all know how I like to look at other people's stuff...
"Here's What I Wore"...
The white blouse is the "Essential White Shirt," from Coldwater Creek, the jeans are my "Saturday Jeans," by Ralph Lauren.
My ponytail was adorned with a cheetah print scrunchie (yes ma'am...still wearing scrunchies). I wore my silver monogrammed drop pendant choker, silver Chanel drop pendant earrings, my "Return to Tiffanys" silver bracelet, and of course, my Cartier roll ring wedding band*. My shoes--cheetah print mules by Van Eli and I carried my tan Chanel 2.55 pocketbook. My lipstick was "Copperglaze Brown," by Revlon and my nail polish was "Tutti Fruitti Tonga," by Opi--very basic, since I've been doing a little gardening this weekend. My fragrance of choice this evening was one of my very favorites--Burberry!
*Note to Kate at AugustVows: I've included a seperate shot of my Cartier roll ring wedding band, just for you! Husband and I have the "his and hers" set--very classic, very Cartier. The jewelry comes with the Cartier Certificate and seal--very timeless...les must de Cartier!
Now y'all know Miss Janice would never dream of arriving at someone's home empty-handed...so I carried along one of my "Friendship Gifts" for September to Stacey--a toile-decorated jar of "Miss Janice's Cinnamon and Apple Tea."
I was a member of a great book club when I lived in California and have since been waiting patiently for the right club opportunity to come along and now, this is definitely my kind of book club. Stacey was an excellent hostess and I had the most wonderful time!
