A Black and White Affair

A few friends hosted a party in San Francisco this weekend and I was so excited to dress up and have a fun night in the city! On the way to our hotel I stopped into Francesca's and fell in love with this dress! The party theme was "Black and White" and while I have a ton of LBDs I really wanted to rock and LWD! I packed a black dress in my suitcase just in case, but I stumbled upon this dress, it fit perfectly and I couldn't leave without it! I love the flapper-inspired cut. I am not a huge fan of tight fitting silhouettes, but this hangs beautifully without being skin tight. The lace detailing around the bottom is amazing, as well, and I think it makes this dress look so elegant (not to mention much more expensive than it actually was).  

I can't find the exact one on the website, but check one of the boutiques near you because I just bought it on Saturday and my store had a bunch of sizes.

Like I said above, I was in the mood to dress up so I threw on my classic black pumps and some pearls. It's a classic combination and you really can't go wrong. Plus, I stayed in the party theme all the way down to my accessories! I didn't carry a bag because I hate having to keep track of it when I'm out. I threw my lipstick in KB's jacket pocket and my ID and credit card in his wallet. If I were more responsible and wanted to round out this outfit I would have packed a little black clutch for the evening.

We went to a bar called Tradition. It's kind of hipster with a ton of handcrafted-cocktail choices. Since we had the private bar upstairs the bartender made a bowl of punch for everyone to start out with while he made other people's drinks. I loved the crystal-cut cups he set out with the punch. It's the small details like that, that make this bar and others in the same chain so great. It is in the Tenderloin, though, so Uber in and out when you go! But don't let that stop you!! And try their other bar right across the street, Bourbon and Branch! It's one of our favorites.

We spent the night in the city at the Fairmont. It has the most amazing lobby and after we got back from the party I couldn't help, but take a few pictures. It was super late and the lighting is always pretty dim, but the staircase is gorgeous! It was an opportunity that I couldn't pass up.

Love you lots,
