Dinner at Wink last night. Amazingly, it's the first time I've ever been there, which is ridiculous considering what a terrific restaurant it is. The food was wonderful and the service was amazing. I'll definitely be going back.

Not an especially fashion forward outfit, but it felt good. I started with the shoes -- I haven't worn these lovelies in quite a long time and needed to bring them out.

They are a dark aubergine velvet and as seems usual for YSLs, incredibly stable & easy to get around in. I have really good luck with YSL shoes, they really seem to suit my feet. (Which I take to signify that I really do need a pair of Tribute sandals. And Tribute pumps.)

The skirt is Valentino, more about which here. Oh, I love this silly thing. It's one of those items that every time I put it on I like it more. I need to wear it while it's cold, because it's wool and once it warms up here in Austin it will have to come out of the rotation.

The cardigan is one of those things I bought two of. It's a tissue-thin lurex knit, and it snags very easily, unfortunately. On the other hand, it's kinda perfect. It has worked with pretty much everything I've ever put it with. After I'd had it for a couple of weeks and had already worn it several times I realized that I was going to wear it to shreds, so I bought a backup. So far I'm still on the first one, I've managed to catch & repair any sangs and the backup is still in its plastic wrap in the drawer. Is that crazy? I don't care -- I love this cardigan.

Was banging on about evening bags on my other blog last week, so I made sure to show this one.

It's just some random cheapie faux thing I picked up at Macy's, I think. I love this Wedgewood blue color and it's such a nice, neat shape.

Holy cow. Just realized I managed an entire evening outfit without a vintage piece. Is that good? I'm not sure...

Fun clutch! I love Wink! It is yummy but for some reason I never think of it when I'm looking for a place to eat...Maybe a little pricey? Or more of a celebration place? Whatever, I need to go back...I enjoy the flights!
