1 dress, 3 ways, parts 2 + 3.

TGIF! Holy frijoles, this week flew by! Yesterday, I had major-major computer issues AKA the most frustrating thing ever. I finally just had to close my laptop and walk away. I hate when technology wins. If robots take over the world, I'll definitely be the first one to wave a little white flag. I just don't have the energy to deal with it.

Because of that, the final two stylings of the Levi's dress are smashed into the same post. Which is actually better, as you'll see they're really almost the same outfit. 

First up, I wore it to the Berkeley Art Museum for the Barry McGee show. I really loved the exhibit. Barry started as a street artist here in San Francisco, and has been a huge inspiration in the art world. I don't pretend to know too much about art, because I don't, but living with an incredible artist has taught me to look at things a little slower and appreciate them more. Plus, it was like having a well versed tour guide. 

I paired the dress with a basic black belt and ballet flats, the only piece of fancy being my Ban.do metallic gold pom-pom in my hair. It was perfect for strolling around the museum and doing a little shopping in Berkeley after.

Next, we made the drive back into the city to meet some friends for dinner. I wanted to dress it up a bit, and it was oh-so-easy to do. Keeping the belt and ban.do, I added a tuxedo jacket I scored from Target a few years ago, and my favorite Badgley Mischka heels. Treasure Island was the perfect place to pull off for some quick photos. The city is perhaps the most beautiful in the world. I just really don't think that is up for argument.

This is one of my favorite ways I styled it. While yes- every time I wear those heels, I feel like my ankle is going to snap... I still was so pleased with how easily the dress turned semi-formal.  The city behind me isn't too bad, either. :)

LASTLY... I threw my flats back on to catch the final game of the World Series, you know- the one where the Giants WON. The dress looks fairly red in these photos, but I assure you... it is more of an orange. Like, a SF Giants orange. So I am confident my little extra team-spirit helped Romo's pitching skills immensely. When they won, the whole city ran into the streets celebrating, cheering, and dancing. It was amazing, and a night I'll never forget. Of course, Tim snapped a few of those photos too... 
AND yes, that is a Tecate in my hand. When in Rome.

Thank you for bearing with me and this long post. WHEW. Just pretend you "forgot" to visit the blog yesterday and so you read all of the posts at once. :) I hope you all have an amazing weekend!! And if you haven't yet, go read Rue!
