I'M OFF TO BOOK CLUB




Tonight I'm off to my book club meeting--The Flamingo Ladies Book Club of Tradition! We will talk about the book we all read, "Stealing Buddha's Dinner," enjoy hors d'oeuvres and cocktails, and socialize!

"Here's What I'm Wearing." These are my ultra comfy jeans, 'The Saturday Jean', by Ralph Lauren and the white blouse is from Coldwater Creek. It's quite chilly here in South Florida, so I'm wearing my hot pink pashima shawl.

To jazz up the outfit a bit, I'll wear black leopard print mules and carry my Chanel 2.55 pocketbook with the silver hardware. My earrings are silver disks trimmed in gold--of course, monogrammed--and I'll wear a choker with the matching monogrammed pendant. I'll wear my 'Oyster Perpetual' watch, by Rolex along with my 'Return to Tiffany' silver bracelet, by Tiffany and my rollring wedding band, by Cartier. I'll also wear one of my silver rings, by Chanel. My ponytail will be adorned with a black monogrammed ponytail cover. My fragrance of choice for the evening...Burberry!


Y'all know I'm not about to show up at someone's home with a gift. I found a cute flamingo-motif plate at HomeGoods, added a layer of green shred, and included some breakfast breads--so my hostess will have something to look forward to in the morning! {Bannana Nut Bread & Chocolate Bannana Nut Bread} I wrapped it all up in clear cello and added a hot pink ribbon. The package is embellished with a cute hot pink flamingo decal. My sweet blogging/twitter/FB friend Margaret at 2PreppyGirls sent some of these to me and I'm happy to share them with my Flamingo Ladies!





I'm off now and thank you so much for stopping by.
