{outfit} A Night on the Town

I wore this last Thursday to head up to LuLu Chinese in Greenwich with my fiancé. I was invited to a preview event ahead of their official opening the following day. The event was slightly disappointing because we could barely move around due to the amount of people. But the food made up for it, we loved everything we tried! More on the food below the outfit photos!

I decided to wear my beloved Carven Paris map print dress because it's been neglected this Summer! It even got a compliment from one of the women at the event. Don't you love when that happens?  Before the event started we decided to walk around the block to take outfit photos with no people around.

Paris Map Dress: Carven (YOOX), Velvet Floral Embroidered Mules: Zigi Soho (T.J. Maxx), Bag: Marc by Marc Jacobs 'Natural Selection Mini Messenger Bag' (Saks Fifth Avenue), Necklace: Acanthus Jewelry 'Gemma' (giveaway win), Sunglasses: Gucci, Eyeglasses chain: Tinksky (Amazon)



On to the food! The event was basically everyone standing around long tables (which will have stools during normal business hours) and sitting at the bar with food being brought out in sample sizes.  Our favorites were the chicken spring rolls, salt & pepper shrimp and pork dumplings! The veggie fried rice was also really good. I liked the flavor of the chilled peanut noodles but it's a little odd (for me) to eat cold noodles so I wasn't a huge fan overall.  They also had crab rangoons, pork belly bao buns and a few cocktails floating around the room.

Looks unassuming outside, but the food is amazing

  8. Oh that food looks so good and I LOVE cold sesame noodles. Your dress is always perfect when it makes an appearance and the turquoise bag is such a perfect match.
