The Scene
Tonight I threw together a little victory celebration for Mr. D.



High school friends



mingled with law school classmates





Some of our oldest favorites met


some of our newest.







Tired old farts (Mr. D and I) caught up


with pretty young things (Scotty Too Hotty and Lauragami.)








We listened to stories about Mr. D's trial and Juana's run-in with a client (NASA!) and the hotel Mr. Architect is designing and Lauragami's upcoming trip to Dubai. Oh and the new direct report I was given today!!!!! When exactly did we all become ballers?

Alas, professional success typically comes with at least one negative - wrinkles. We all talked about aging and plastic surgery quite a bit tonight - very LA of us. We discovered Juana, Lauragami AND Mr. Architect were all told by orthodontists they need chin work done. UGH! Their profiles are gorg. Dentists=scammers. F.





Ended the night with optical illusions. Always a great way to lighten the mood. Look at the size of Mr. D's noggin in this pic!!! Love. That dastardly architect is good.





The Outfit
J Brand jeans
Fashion District top and jacket

The Accessories
Forever 21 bangles
Chanel purse and earrings
Manolo Blahnik heels

The Grade
B+




The Commentary

Lauragami won best dressed female tonight hands down. Love the sequin shell paired with the Madewell circle scarf and dark denim. Simple but super luxe look.


Much more flattering than Mary Kate's hobo chic take.








Mr. Architect won best dressed male. Just look at that Hugo Boss jacket. Yum. Velvety goodness. No wonder Silver Haired Fox borrowed it for the Emmys one year.

Scotty Too Hotty - per usual - won best female AND male hair award tonight. I covet his locks. It's a sore spot.








Another sore spot: looking preggers. Which I did today. Love this top in theory but wish I had bought it a size smaller. All the chiffony material creates an unacceptably top heavy effect. ESPECIALLY posing next to a long, lithe Lauragami. In this pic, I am pissed at Mr. Architect for not disguising my flower power bulge. Apparently, he is only the master illusionist when it comes to making himself look skinny in photos. F.




Today's pregnancy top reminded me of quite a few stunningly goregous but fundamentally unflattering Spring runway looks




Like these purty Phillip Lim ruffles which will make the average woman look like she inhales Ruffles all the live long day.




The only way to wear a voluminous skirt like this Koi Suwannagate is with a slim top and high heels.






Instead of this difficult to wear rosette dress



Think DVF flower prints cinched with a belt.











These beautiful Dolce and Gabanna looks are strictly for runway



Looking like you are being attacked by a rose garden is never a good look in real life.














This Valli dress=Marshmellow Giant in Ghostbusters.


This Carolina Herrera=buttery, fluttery alternative.














And this grassy knoll look...well.... just don't. Promise me.

You know I just went through a T-Bags dress induced pregnancy situation.

I like that top! I don't think it makes you look pregnant.

I know what you mean about the preggers top, I have banished all things like that from my wardrobe. But saying that - you looked great!
