{outfit} Fork & Fire(works)



  Thursday, July 11, 2019 at 7:30 AM   |    Post a Comment     Tagged:,,,,,,,, 
I wore this a couple weekends ago to a blogger Happy Hour at Fork & Fire in Farmington, CT. They have recently changed their name from 4Eat&Drink but is still owned and run by the same team. Manager Jesse explain the appetizer options while Danny made us delicious cocktails. I tried the Spring Blossom which features gin and strawberry.  I particularly enjoyed the BLT Flatbread, wings and pita chips. What can I say, I’m a simple gal who loves her bread.

The event was super fun and we were the only ones in the restaurant so we were free to do crazy blogger things like rearrange tables to get the best shot of the food. So much easier than when you have other restaurant goers disturbed by photo taking; or just staring because they're confused.

I wore my fun firework print Marc Jacobs dress for the occasion and Lydia and I stopped by a local historical society afterward for photos.

P.S. You may also notice some weird circles on my back. I was going to photoshop them out but was too lazy. I went to my Aunt's for a massage before the event and had her do some cupping because my back was hurting more than usual that day. Cupping makes it feel so much better! IF you're in the Wethersfield area be sure to check her out for massage, cupping and energy work! (We're currently revamping her site because this one was made way back when I was in college in 2009.)

Dress: Marc by Marc Jacobs 'Dancing Lights' tiered ruffle dress, Espadrilles: Sam Edelman 'Lars' (Net-a-Porter), Bag: Emm Kuo 'Calle Bahia' (Roundabout), Sunglasses: Gucci

  3. Such a cute dress and I like those slides with it, nice colour combo! :) I've never tried cupping but it's great you can go to your aunt for it! :) There's a massage place around the corner I go to often as they always know just what to do to fix any issues I have - but it can get expensive, haha!

    Hope that you have a great weekend ahead of you :)

  5. Still thinking about those pork silders and that yummy hummus! I never thought of that dress as being a firework print, but I totally see it now!
