Bat Girl

Today is my hubby's birthday so for a special treat we broke the rigid lunch schedule with his friends and went to one of our favorite Mediterranean places. I got the amazing vegetarian combo lunch which includes: falafel, spanakopita, vegetarian stuffed grape leaves and a choice of two sides, I got rice pilaf and hummus.  They were out of spanakopita (sad face) but they gave me extra falafel in it's place. We topped off our meal with a small piece of  pistachio baklava each, oh so yummy!


Hair flower- JoAnn's Fabric ($1)

Belt, earrings, and bracelet- vintage
Purse- Betsey Johnson (outlet)
Shoes- ModCloth

I know it is not the best light but beggars can't be choosers. The shoes got a little washed out by the sun in the photos. I hope to get better shots tonight at family dinner but it might not be possible so these are better than none.
I love the hepcat dress. I would love to own it in red and possibly the green as well. I have a large chest so I can't button  it but with a cute tank or buttoned cardigan it is just fine for day wear. At night I just wear it with a push-up bra. The side zipper gives good ease for putting on and taking off but mine is rather fussy so I normally shimmy into it with it zipped then use the zipper when I take it off.

Some of my favorite vintage earrings, even when I sell of pieces these never leave my collection

Kind of a mix of Megan Draper and Yvonne Craig. 
I was happy I was able to do a winged eye at all today, my liner brush broke and I need to get a new one.
I hadn't worn heels this high since the last time I did a fashion show. 
At 5.5 inches these put me at 5' 11" which is only 2 inches shorter than my hubby when I wear them.
