A Kid Again for a Day...

kid's party1
-- shirt: Lauren RL --- bubble skirt: Guess -- bow: Gap --
-- belt:
Calvin Klein -- boots: Nine West--

O ur friend's baby girl turned 1 and since most of her guests are adults, her parents asked us to dress as kids. I wanted to dress as Sailor Moon at first but realized it requires so much effort. So, I just stared at my closet and asked myself, what would Patty Ann do?!

I came up with this school girl outfit and even managed to convince a good friend to dress the same outfit! We looked like private school twins!

Together with the hubz who was dressed in denim overalls, we were nominated for best costume. However, another couple friend who came in a custom-made Hansel & Gretel outfit (complete with a basket and bread!) won. They were so cute together and I wish I could post their picture here but forgot to ask!

We had so much fun! I think I'm having a lot more fun now as an adult dressing (acting) like a kid than when I was a kid impatiently waiting to become an adult! I was also too preoccupied with grades and after-school activities when I was a kid and really didn't have much time just to be a kid. And so now, I'm making up for all of it!!

On a totally unrelated note, I think I have been lagging behind on my food posts and would like to make up for it as well. Here's some of the restos here that we've been to the past few weekends. I wish to document it before it starts to get cold again and we would no longer be able to eat out as much. I usually cook at home in winter because I find it to be such an effort to spend half an hour getting dressed in 5 layers just to go out and eat.

  15. Grace, you are adorable. This outfit is sooooo cute. And the party sounds like it was a lot of fun. What a great idea to have the guest dress up as something young and fun. Even though you look like a school girl, you also look high fashion with your boots and your belt! Great outfit, Grace.

    Your food pictures look delicious. Thank you for recommending some restaurants. I'm planning to visit Boston next May or June, so it's good to know about some good restaurants in the States. I love eating out and trying new things. Even though the weather will get cooler, hopefully you'll still get a chance to eat out from time to time. Happy cooking!

    All the best,
    Carrie

  17. Mmmh So to be totally honest I am not especially a "school girl" aesthetics' fan, BUT your thighs'discreet unveiling frankly needs to be tagged "with a high content of sensual bewitchment", AND this outfit's nostalgic vibrancy Really confers it a (so delightfully smiling !!!) stylish Soul . . .
    ps: Your comment on "stilettosteticooooooooo" sounds as such a rhetorical Pleasure Dear !!!
