On Monday I represented my company at a Lela Rose couture gown showing. This was not nearly as exciting and glamorous as expected. Although I arrived right on time for my 5:00pm appointment, knowing that everything in Manhattan runs a little late, I found that they were already packing the dresses at 5:01! I don't know what happened, but I do know this: I loved the Thread Design bridesmaids dresses. I think the company is pretty well known for using traditional, preppy fabrics (seersucker) in more fashion forward shapes. I do love those designs, but I was excited to find that they have some other options that definitely pass the "would the girls wear this again" test. On the down side, one hopes they would wear them again, considering the price ($450?). Anyway, if you have bridesmaids with big budgets, consider Thread Design. My favorite option is to the left. - LG
We helped UVA ring in a great win over Pitt this weekend, all kicked off with a five hour tailgate in Charlottesville. Night games really are just so much better for tailgating.
We had some great food and fun with good friends. Searching for some excitement in a sea of Miller Lites and bourbon and ginger ales, I decided to try the much-talked about Beer Margaritas. As a connoisseur of margaritas, I was a bit skeptical, but these did not disappoint. The addition of beer to these (Corona in my case) really cut the sweetness that sometimes overpower traditional margaritas.
They were a hit with the entire group!
