Chasing Davies: Day 13 {Pastel}

Day 13 {Pastel}

Today someone told me I looked like Easter.  I don't know if that's a good thing or not... I guess my outfit is full of a lot of pastels.

The chiffon dress is by Donna Morgan. I scored it last August at Nordstrom Rack in Chicago for only about $50.  This is the dress, except in a darker color, and not $50...

Well - maybe it was a little too pastel-y.  Either way, the first time this challenge I wore this cocktail dress, and I wanted to dress it down a bit to wear to work.  It was a friend/co-worker's bday and after work, we went to a really cool bar styled after a speakeasy so I wanted to be dressed up just enough.

Speakeasies were establishments that illegally sold alcohol in the 1920s.  In Kansas City, Manifesto is under a nice restaurant in Kansas City and the entrance is in the back of the building.  You have to ring a bell and be escorted down to the bar.  They have a great menu of very unique drinks, and the decor is very romantic.  I loved it!  I am already going back next week for a work event, and I really want to take my hubs there on a date sometime soon.
