SpicyCandyDC: A very special brunch celebration

A very special brunch celebration

on Dec 17, 2011
Yesterday we had the pleasure of attending a very special, Le Cirque Brunch Extravaganza at Napoleon Bistro & Lounge in honor of our friend, fabulous blogger, and the woman who's going to help us cure cancer, Dr. Carla Cabrera.  It still feels surreal to call her that, but this title is very well deserved now that she officially obtained her PhD from Georgetown University! We absolutely love the combination of beauty and brains, and you must agree that this sexy lady certainly has both.  In the midst of all the free-flowing champagne, incredible food, sexy tunes, and random burlesque performances, we completely forgot to take photos together, but you can check out Carla's incredible style on her blog here.  
Blouse:  Vintage
Jeans:  Joe's
Booties:  Schutz
Belt:  Zara (past season)
Necklace:  Thrifted
Lippie:  YSL Wild Berry
I got this vintage blouse two years ago and just rediscovered it in my closet last week - it really was a small moment of joy!  Cleaning out your closet seriously feels like Xmas because of all the treasures that hyde somewhere in the back corners.  I love pairing up funky 80's patterns with basics like this Zara leather belt and Joe's skinnies for a more chic look.  Sometimes a lot of vintage and 80's can get a little out of control :)

Vest: INC
Blouse: Vintage
Jean Shorts: Forever21
Wedge Booties: Report via SMU
Bag: Dooney and Burke
Sunnies: Michael Kors
I planned this outfit around my fav pair of wedge booties I got at SMU last Thursday!  I also love this vintage blouse I found at Unique thrift store a few months ago. I like that it's oversized, and I think its safe to say that my fav pattern of all time is polka dots!  The fur vest is actually my mom's and I love that it's not too bulky but thick enough to keep me warm in 30 degrees weather.  

The best crab benedict ever!  My favorite part was the artichokes in it.  YUM!
We love the decor!
