Day 35: Rayon Jersey, my 40s Lust Affair

Rayon jersey.
I love it.
Covet it.
Own a fair amount of it, too.

This fantastic gown is one of my absolute favorite online purchases. I don't have many dresses purchased online that currently fit, but the forgiving stretch of rayon jersey, and flattering pleats make this dress perfect through about a 3" waist range.

After a long weekend of wearing all workaday casual wear, I needed to get dressed up and hit the town! I talked Jesse into taking me out to Circa 33, a local bar specializing in original recipes of vintage cocktails. The cocktails were fantastic! The awful hipster music doing Flight of the Conchords covers, etc - was not. We drank and left before their second set attacked.

Notice how he color-coordinated to match my outfit? I didn't even have to ask. I love him.
