Nevermore Meets Fashion Star

Sunday was my wedding anniversary. To celebrate Juan took me out to eat at Bongo's in Orlando and to see Cirque de Soleil's La Nouba. Now since the day we moved here I have said I want to go eat at Bongo's, so almost 4 years later, I finally got to go eat there. Since the day we moved here I have said I want to go see La Nouba, and again, almost 4 years later, we finally went. Does your life ever go like that? So many places to see or go to and you always forget and then wish you did it. That is us sometimes. Life just gets in the way sometimes. It happens. But I can't believe it's been so long and we hadn't done it yet. 

Before going, I did a new manicure wearing our upcoming one coat black Nevermore. I can't begin to tell you how much I love this black. One coat, so shiny. LOVE! LOVE! LOVE! I added some rhinestones to my spirit finger. I normally do not ever use my middle finger as an accent nail, but I just kept getting drawn to doing that nail with this design! I love how it came out! I am not sure when we will be releasing this color. It was meant to be part of a collection, so we will have to see. Once I know I will let you guys know of course.

 I knew I was going to wear my Fashion Star dress designed by Sarah Parrott and picked up by H&M. I had been saving it for my anniversary dinner. I love that it can be casual and dressy. Left in the original format this dress is super low cut! I actually sewed a button in to bring up the low cut front to a more appropriate for me length. But if I'm being honest, I was subconscious the entire night wishing I went a bit higher. Juan of course thought it looked great. But I always feel selfconscious letting the girls hang out. If I was still in my 20's I probably would have left the dress as originally intended.

 I couldn't resist, I just had to to the Jolie leg pose! I had to! How could I not?

The back of this dress does not allow for a bra thanks to the black mesh design. But I had a backless bra from Fashion Forms that worked great. I mean seriously though, I LOVE this dress! I want to go put it back on just looking at these pictures! OK so I'm just a little obsessed with these Fashion Star items!

 Of course since it was our anniversary Juan had to indulge me and take a picture with me!

On our way to dinner, Juan stopped at the mall. I really did not want to go into the mall all dressed up. But what girl can turn down the little blue box? This is my first ever item from Tiffany's. Ironically, I have purchased Tiffany's for one of my daughter's already and more than once, but nothing for myself. So this was pretty exciting. I have been eyeing a few necklaces from there, from the "inexpensive" to the ridiculous. Of course we went with one of the reasonable options, but it was exactly what I wanted and now I have a Tiffany's necklace and a Tiffany's diamond! WAHOO!

It is very tiny and delicate. Perfect for everyday use. Of course I did try on the much larger and much more expensive version while I was there, how could I not. But to be honest, this is the one I wanted. I actually was tossed between this one and another one that was a little bigger. But this one was perfect. I haven't taken it off since getting it!

All in all I think the nails, dress and necklace were a perfect match for each other. It was a great dinner, and the show was amazing. I had the best date with the love of my life! How could a girl ask for anything more? 


  1. eeeekkkk.. soooo elegant! I need to grow my nails fast!

  2. Love the polish! I so need that one!! (yah ok, let's be real - I need like five bottles of it)

    Love the dress too!! You guys look so cute together and love the necklace too. I love small delicate "rocks" like that. Think it's a "less is more" aesthetic that I have going.
