Poodle Bits & Bites

It's Restaurant Week in Sonoma County!!!

Don't know what Restaurant Week is?? For shame!

Neither did I. HeHe!

Apparently it is a whole week to experience some of the best that Sonoma County has to offer, for a set menu price. Three-course meals at $19, $29, or $39, depending on the restaurant.

Given my obsession with all things food related, how did I not know about this????

Thankfully my awesome friend emailed me with the details and is surprising me with a night out tonight!

Sooooo, I of course immediately thought, "What am I going to wear??"

Never fear! I have just the right outfit! I got it on Black Friday for a great price, and have been saving it for warmer weather. Husband doesn't like it, so it's perfect because he won't be there! Ha!

The dress is from Trashy Diva, one of my favorite shops. Don't let the name fool you; there's nothing trashy about their gorgeous designs. Based out of New Orleans, Trashy Diva sells vintage reproduction clothing, that looks like the real thing. Their dresses are sensational!

Love, Love, Love this retro rocket print!
I ended up wearing a skinny red belt instead;
made my waist look thinner! Ha!

One of the things I love about their online shop, is that they list the measurements for each dress separately! No random one-for-everything size chart here! Which is exactly what a poodle needs when shopping online.

I should probably get this hemmed, but
I couldn't wait!

And can we say AMAZING SALES??!! The dresses you have been dreaming of, at affordable prices!

All of this makes Trashy Diva a 10 in my book! Poodle A-PProved!!!

Hey Poodles! It's Friday night and I'm all dressed up with somewhere to go! Oh Yeah!!!

Off to Jack and Tony's!!
Best mac n' cheese in town!
Peppered steak with sweet potato gratin
Totally started eating this before I remembered to take
a picture! HaHa! Butterscotch pudding
with a Snickerdoodle on top! I can't even put
into words how delicious this is!!!!!
And look! A sidecar! Yum!

    1. I am seriously spoiled living where I do! It has turned me into a food snob! ;)

  3. You look seriously fantastic, dear gal! Love the punchy red and blue palette of your dress (complete with killer red handbag!), and how perfectly well suited to summer this look feels.

    *PS* I wouldn't change the hemline personally...but to be fair, I generally prefer longer hems, so I might be a wee bit biased. ;)

  4. Awww-shucks, you made me blush! ;) I am addicted to Trashy Diva dresses! They are too, too fabulous! I do love a longer hemline, but being as short as I am (4'11"..almost), I can't always pull one off. :( I'm going to have to try this dress with a petticoat and see how it works out...

  5. The handbag is to die for!!! I mean the whole outfit is as well, lol, but I adore that bag. :) New follower here!

    1. Hi!! Thanks for following!!! Welcome!! ;)
      The handbag is from Lux de Ville. They have fabulous bags, all different glitters and styles!! And they have leopard print ones too! A little pricey, but they have some pretty good sales.
