Stephy’s 24th: May 29th, 2010

Event: Celebrating Stephy’s 24th birthday!

My outfit: Strapless purple dress: The Limited; Vest: Old Navy (gift from Anna); Heels: Nine West (borrowed from Anna); Gold necklace & ring: Borrowed from Anna; Gold cuff: Banana Republic (gift from Stephy)

Stephy’s outfit: Shirt & necklace: Silver Spider; Skirt: Simply Vera (thrifted); Shoes: Target; Earrings: Target (gift from me); Red flower pin: H&M (borrowed from me)

After seeing SATC2, I don’t think attire other than that which requires high heels could possibly be donned. 😉 Stephy went for “Carrie” with the help of my big flower, and I…well, admittedly didn’t really channel anyone. I packed very light for this trip (er, so light that I forgot pajamas), so this was the outfit that came to be. I like getting ready with friends—-seeing their “outfit choosing process” and enjoying the mutual fanciness that results.

We started the evening out with delicious homemade pasta and a bottle of white wine. Many more drinks would follow, including some shots for the birthday girl that the rest of us downed as well. Oof, shots. I rarely drink hard alcohol anymore, so that was probably what made me so, er, wobbly. I lucked out far more than the birthday girl, though, and after LOTS of water was all good to make the 4-hour drive back the next day.

Yay for a dressy night out, especially one in celebration of a birthday (especially when it’s for a friend I’ve known for 23.5 years). I’m glad I got to ring in Stephy’s 24th with her. While I’m very excited that I’ll be a bridesmaid in her wedding to Jonathan (yay!), I don’t know how much I’ll see her over the next five years outside of wedding festivities and holidays…they’re California-bound for the duration of Jonathan’s PhD program. Sigh. We’re all growing up.
