Polka dots and Melanzane Parmigiana

By C.Elizabeth








Last Saturday we went out for a meal in honour of a member of the family's birthday. To my greatest pleasure, we all decided to eat Italian! I feel I never can go wrong with (vegetarian) Italian food as it is always very tasty. I had a meal called "Melanzane Parmigiana" and it was delicious. It's mainly made of aubergine,tomatoes and cheese. It looks pretty much like a lasagna.





It was the perfect occasion to wear my pretty new dress which I bought in a shop where I almost never go as I don't usually like anything they sell. It's called "Wardrobe" and it's in the little town where I live at the moment. I even found some gorgeous shoes! I think that from now on, I might visit this shop a bit more often... we never know!
It was also a good occasion to wear the beautiful ring my mom gave me a few years ago. It's the first ring my dad bought her in the 1970's, even before they got married! It has a perfect pearl on and I simply love it.

Polkadots are cute but they can easily be overdone. However, your dress is very 50s. Which works.

PS: You should pull up your hair with that dress. Add a little touch.

=O!!! Polka Dots! My only weakness!! HOW DID YOU KNOW?!?!?!?!?!
You look fantastic. =]

I do hope to visit Canada one day. I live in Boston and its really only like 6 hours away by bus. Just never got the chance! But maybe now that I am 18 I can go and won't have to worry about crossing the boarder without parental consent.

Emily said...

What a sweet story behind your lovely ring. Pearls have such a way of exuding elegance, don't they?

I'm liking your new dress. I've been searching for a polka dot dress, but haven't found "the one" yet ;) I also like how you wore it with those cute little white flats.

Annnd, that melanzane parmigiana looks insanely delicious!

RE: Yes! I like the way you've put that. Sepia photos DO seem to tell more of a story :)

You asked for me to let you know about My Sister's Keeper and I saw the movie and I did not like it, it does not compare to the book! So, you must read the book, it is so good and a must read!! Enjoy and hope your day is going well! XO
