The little black dress...
Classic. Elegant. Gorgeous.
I have about 5 or 6 little black dresses...
I always think they are so fabulous, until I have to pick one to wear!
they are too tight in the all the wrong places-
or too tight in all the right places and it's not appropriate!
too short,
too long,
too formal,
too informal...
you get the idea...

I have managed to narrow it down to 3 for tonight.


I'll be adding in some classic black suede heels...

& a triple strand of pink pearls...

More on this soon... It is in San Francisco... But it's nothing to do with the World Series... It's a bit more formal!

For now-
Get your decorating, inspirations, flea finds, etc... post ready or dig em out of your past posts!!
coming your way!!
Linky will be up tomorrow evening!
Hope to see you there!!!

One more thing! I need some great Halloween party games and food ideas for Saturdays party- if anyone has any ideas please let me know!! Thanks!


  1. I think I'd go with dress number one. Where are your going? Have fun!

  2. Pretty things. What are you dressing up for?!

  3. I love the 1st dress the most and the shoes are to die for!! I hope you have a ball!

    I'm joining your party tomorrow...yay!!


  4. Hi Courtney! Oh I sooooo need an LBD and yet I never buy one! I always think...why bother when I never go anywhere fancy? And then there will be the one time when it would be perfect to have one and I don't! You are inspiring me to keep my eye out for just the right one to have on hand! :-)

  5. I am loving #1!! What a perfect Little Black Dress!! I hope that you have a great time!!! Whatever dress you choose you will rock it!!! :)

  6. Oh my ... how fun is your little black dress event going to be? Can't wait to hear all about it. In the meantime, I'm loving your classic pearls ~ you can never go wrong with them!

  7. I like the third dress with the rosettes! Now tell us where you are going!!

  8. I love #2- but I'm always a sucker for strapless! :)
    Courtney, that is so cool about our dads!! I kinda figured maybe the sommelier thing was a hobby...what does your dad like to build?
    One thing I didn't have in my post :( was that he built our Shaker 4 poster bed as a wedding gift! So nice to have someone that can do that for ya! Hope you have a fun weekend. If I think of any fun party foods, I'll send it your way. It's not coming to me yet...

  9. I vote for the first one also. They are all fabulous, though! About the iphone, I just dropped it on a vinyl floor. We don't have a store near here, but I might try Asheville. That's a good idea. Thanks!!

  10. Hi Courtney, You will look fabulous in anything you wear! Don't keep us in suspense too long. Love the pink pearls.
    xoxo, Sherry

  11. Well, if I had a body like yours I would have worn the shoes and pink pearls and called it a day! Just kidding! Thanks for visiting my blog. I'm following your blog, if you like it would be nice to have you follow back.
    Have a nice day

  12. Oh, in my rush to link up, I forgot to say that I thought you looked gorgrous on your evening out. Really pretty.
