I had the best time last night at the Francaise dinner party Kat organized! It was held at a restaurant in PA that Robin recommended. The food was awesome, as was the company!
Backing up a bit, Jess let me crash at her place, which happened to be near where Doug's sister lives. So Doug and I drove up Saturday and he dropped me off. It was nice to have someone to help with hair and I had a lot of fun getting ready for the party with Jess!
I was really happy with how my hair came out too!
I'm so in love with these shoes/buckles!
Jess and I ready to go to the party:
Everyone had winter cloaks - it was cold! But fortunately not snowy or rainy!
Kat & I - we had the same Forever 21 necklace!
Also, she has a ship on her head! So awesome!
The lighting was fairly low...
Me & Kat again:
Both sides of the table!
Lindsey & Aubry:
Gloria & Taylor:
Everyone looked awesome!
Amanda - and her gorgeous new dress!
This is funnier without the story behind it! :-)
The French onion soup - SO good!
Kat had custom lip balm made - this one smells like CAKE. Awesome!
Many of us got the Chicken Francaise for dinner because of the name! Also, it was delicious! The vegetables were so good too, as were the mashed potatoes. If only we hadn't all been wearing stays!
Jenny-Rose had big feathers and there was a nearby (unlit) candle! We joked about not knowing how women didn't set themselves on fire back then!
Dessert - yummy cheesecake!
Kat's ship started listing:
After dinner, we went upstairs and found a shot to take some group pics. Two people got a group pic of everyone, but I'll have to post those when they show up on LJ!
Here are small groups:
And, of course.. shoe shot!
American Duchess buckles!
